A Sweet Day


*Comments are now close, because I'm working on drawing a winner!* 

{you might just want to stick around for a very sweet giveaway}

They say time flies when you're having fun.

I can't believe I've been blogging for a year.

Because this is my idea of fun.

One year.

And yet, it seems like I've been sharing my life with you for much longer. You've held my hand on terrible Mondays and shared in my good/bad news. You didn't judge me when I did this or showed pictures of this. And when you cared enough to help me with this, it meant so much to me.

I look forward to more.  Much more.

In honor of this little anniversary, I'm very excited to announce that one reader will win something very special.

And very dear to my heart. 

This is my way of saying thanks for making THAT family feel normal. Sometimes.

Are you ready?

Because I am prepared to giveaway.............. {please, a drum roll would be appreciated}

ONE YEAR OF SWEET TEA!!!

I know.

For those of you who read often, you know I'm a heavy {sweet tea} drinker.  It's a problem I love having! 

One very lucky person will win a $100 gift card to Chick Fil A or Cracker Barrel  on Friday, Oct. 31 of this week. (And I'm reluctantly withdrawing my name from the pot).

$100 of sweet tea.

Why, that's 80 cups of sweet tea. Oh, stop my beating heart. Or it's 25 one-gallon jugs (one for every other week of the year) of the liquid manna.

Or it's a lotta chicken.

I am not taking a stand against the chicken, per se, I'm just thinking the choice is clear.

ONE YEAR OF SWEET TEA! ($100 value)

(Winner can choose between Chick Fil A and Cracker Barrel based on location. And if you don't live near one of those, we'll find some good sweet tea for you).

All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me how long you've been blogging or been reading blogs (everyone is eligible).  AND you can get a double entry if you subscribe to my blog. It's free and you just have to click below and follow the directions! (Make sure you mention if you're a new subscriber or already subscribe in the comments).


If you don't win, you can drown your sorrows in my sweet tea recipe.

This giveaway was made possible by some very special sponsors, thank you!

Now, since my blogoversary happened to fall during the week of Bloggy Giveaways, click the following link to find more fabulous giveaways!

CanCan said...

What a great idea for a giveaway: it is SO "you"!
Maybe I should change my giveaway to reflect my self more, like some acne medicine or something. But that is not "fun".

I have been blogging since 2000 and I am fully addicted!

Karin said...

I have been blogging for a little over a year. Here is my newest blog: http://cooking-karin.blogspot.com/

I have already been subscribed to your RSS feeds.

willblogforshoes said...

You had me at sweet tea!

I've been blogging for two and a half years & was reading blogs for a few months before I got up the nerve to post!

Karin said...

Should have also said that I've lived in Florida for over 20 years and it has only been over this last year that I have acquired a taste for sweet tea.

Couldn't stand it when I moved down here and couldn't believe how many times the only beverages offered were water and sweet tea. . .culture shock!

It is something that has really grown on me. Many times I find that i actually PREFER tea! Go figure. . . ;-D

Suzanne said...

I've been blogging for 3 years...I just had my anniversary. I'm good friends w/ Shauna and started reading your blog just a week ago and I've read most of it now! LOVE it!!

I also LOVE chick-fil-A and eat there at least once a week!!!

Oh, and I subscribed!!!

Dawn said...

I had a blog previoiusly that I did for about one and half years. Then, due to changes in the host site, I got fed up with it and quit for about one year. I've been blogging at my current site (http://dkwwrites.blogspot.com/) for about eight months.

A year of Cracker Barrel tea would be like a dream come true! And, so convenient - one is located about two miles from my house!

Karla @ Ramblin' Roads said...

Now wouldn't that be fun? Too win, I mean! Great giveaway!

I've been blogging since before blogging was cool. I started in 2002. I don't really celebrate my blogaversary because I was pretty hit-or-miss the first few years. I've been more consistent since about 2005, picking up momentum as more people began to join in.

Karla @ Ramblin' Roads said...

Oh, crumb! I forgot to say that I'm already subscribed to your blog!

Wifeof1Momof4 said...

Hey .. congrats to you!

I have been blogging really for only 18 months, but I started in Jan 2007 and then CHICKENED out and didn't post until May or June of 2007. (Hint, hint for the gift card)

I tried to subscribe months ago, but it didn't go through, so I added you to my google reader. I think I like that better anyway.

Cheri-Beri said...

Congratulations :-)

I've been blogging for close to three years and I already subscribe to your blog. Of course, I just added it again in Google reader. So now I don't know how to delete the new one. I guess until I figure it out I'll get twice the joy of seeing your posts.

And I don't live anywhere near CB or CFA . . . . isn't that tragedy? Especially since I just discovered CFA sweet tea on a recent trip to Florida. Oh well, Sonic makes a good sweet tea, too :-)

Baby Tunnel Exodus said...

Best Giveaway Ever. Get this woman an award!! A year of sweet tea? That's downright genius.

I've been blogging for 8 months. It started as a way to keep out of state family up to date and turned into a total vice for ME. I have been so blessed by the stories I've read, the connections I've made and the relief I've found in discovering that (pardon the HSM line here) we're all in this together.

I've been following you in my google reader for awhile now; love your blog (& your new look is great)!

Blessings, Whitney

Lu said...

Congrats on your anniversary! I have been blogging since April of last year and been reading blogs since July of the year before.

This contest is great!!!

Lilypad Mom said...

Congratulations on 1 year! I've been blogging for about a year and a half, although I took a 6 month break in the middle. I started reading about a month before I started blogging. I have you in my google reader.

Holly Jahangiri said...

Did I forget to hit enter? It's late...

Congratulations on your first blogoversary!

I have been blogging since Blogger was a baby. One of my very first posts EVER was my attempt to define just what this "blogging" phenomenon was. As a result, I was quoted in the Hindustan Times as a "veteran blogger."

I'm a new subscriber!

Nice blog makeover, too. Looks MAHVELOUS!

Putting the Best Thing First said...

I have only been blogging about a month. You inspired me to start my own blog. I love your wit and outlook on life. AND I LOVE sweet tea!! I have been a subscriber to your page for a while now. Looking forward to may more years to come.

The Glamorous Life said...

Take me out of the running. We have neither Cracker Barrel or Chick-Fil-A's here...and I don't need it really. Cuz I just won the best sign EVER.....but still I wanted to chime in with a huge CONGRATS on the sucess of your blog. It is inspiring. Like you.

Kristen M. said...

Fantastic idea! Congrats on your blogging anniversary, I've been enjoying your site.

Stonefox (otherwise known as Heidi) said...

Sounds delicious!

I've been blogging for 4 months now. I follow you on blogger, does that count as a subscription?!

Happy Anniversary. I'm glad to be part of your blog family.

Courtney said...

I've been blogging since March of this year (8 months now). I am a pretty tightly wound person, so I am really loving how therepeutic blogging has been for me.

I love reading your blog for the DIYP and parenting tips. I just subscribed today.

Happy Blogoversary!!

Tanya Moyer said...

I LOVE SWEET TEA, TOO!!! But, I don't have a blog, YET...I'm still trying to figure out a name, what I'd write, etc...basically, I'm wimping out!

Anyway, I've been subscribed to your blog for a few months now, and I really enjoy reading it!

Great giveaway - thanks for offering!

Happy Blogoversary! I have been blogging off and on for about a year & reading for much longer. I also suffer from your problem. Without my sweet tea, I am a total grump. Congrats again! :)

Congrats on the 1 year anniversary!

anne said...

I love your blog and how funny it is! I've been blogging on wordpress for a year and a half and love the outlet of blogging. I also love sweet tea and chicken (for us we have to make a half hour trip to get us some chickfila, but it is soo worth it!)

keep blogging, you are an inspiration to us all!

The Source said...

I've been blogging for about 10 months. Reading them for about 18 months. I think. Life is a blur. I haven't had my tea yet this morning.

Heather said...

That is a great giveaway! I have never meet a glass of sweet tea I didn't like. I have been blogging since January of this year. I can't believe how truely addicting it is!!

Anonymous said...

I've been reading your blog for 5 months! and you know I do love sweet tea (maybe not as much as you do...but I'm part of the club). haha.

AmyG said...

Happy Blogoversary!! I've enjoyed reading your posts since February of this year. Look forward to beging with you for another great year!

And what a great giveway! I love both places.

And I subscribe to your blog. ;o)

Holly said...

I am definately interested in this sweet tea giveaway...I LOVE me some sweet tea. Especially when I am pregnant or nursing..and with 5 children, ages 6 and under, that's about always. And because of that, you can so imagine that WE are THAT family also! I just subscribed and am so happy I did. I've been reading you blog for about 6 months now. Since I finally jumped into blogging myself about a year ago, your site has been an inspiration...and oh, some sweet tea would help me be even more inspired!

Debbie said...

Well Cracker Barrel has just about the best sweet tea, next to mine. I am the tea maker for all family gatherings.

I've been blogging since April 2008. My son encouraged me to start blogging and I couldn't see why anyone would be interested in my ramblings. Then I started checking out all the great blogs out in the blogsphere, and decided to give it a try.

I've been subscribed to your blog for several months now and enjoy reading of the antics of your family. It reminds me of when our son was young and going through all the kid "stuff" too.

Congratulations on passing your one year anniversary.

Judy said...

Ooooh, I love me some of the Chick (fil a, of course)!

I've been blogging for 3.5 years now - I started when my younger son was about 3 or 4 months old and haven't looked back. It is an addiction! I've been reading your blog for about 4 or 5 months now...I especially love the pics you post at the bottom of your blog, and I love your weekend posts. :-)

Judy said...

Forgot - I have you on my bloglines feedreader, too - that's how I keep up with you!

Laura said...

Chick-fil-A?!? Free tea?!? Count me in!! Oh, and I already follow you on bloglines feeder...I hope that counts!

Congrats on your blogoversary!!

Jessica D. said...

Love their tea,

I just subscribed. I've been meaning to do it for awhile. Good Timing.

I've been blogging for almost a year as a way to keep family informed.

deb said...

That's a heavy duty giveaway!! Let's see.. I've been blogging for about 3 years. I recently found your blog in the past few months and subscribed right away. :) We're not close to a Chick fil A but I do love Cracker Barrel!

Mama's Ramblings said...

I am already subscribed as a reader and when I tried to subscribe again, it wouldn't let me. Let me know if there is another way that I need to subscribe so that I can make sure I have 2 entries in the drawing.


I have been blogging for about a year. I started to blog because I wanted everyone to be able to keep up with our lives. Feel free to check out my blog. It isn't as well put together as yours, but it is still something special to us. :-)

I really enjoy reading your blog. I don't remember how I came across is, but I am glad that I did. I look forward to WINNING the drawing!! :-)

Tree Climbing Mom said...

Happy Anniversary! What a wonderful chronicle of this year of your life. Thank you for being so honest and so encouraging in your blog.

I've been blogging for 7 months and reading blogs for about 1 1/2 years. I subscribe to you through Google Reader.

Have a great anniversary!

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

With our five kids, Chick Fil-et is the best treat in the world. I have been blogging for a little over three months, reading them for 5, and time spent here....priceless. :)

everyday mom said...

What an awesome giveaway, you are very generous. I came across your blog from to the moon and back and will be subscribing today, not just for the second entry LOL!!

Sarah said...

Congratulations! Blogging is just about the best "job" you can have, I have been blogging now since the beginning of August (I think!). And I have been reading your blog since April. Actually your blog really introduced me into the blog-world. I'm not sure how I found you, but I remember calling my sister in near tears from laughing so hard, and telling her to check out your blog. Thank you for being REAL about your life and family! It's an encouragement!

Momto3 said...

Happy Anniversary! I started my blog www.momto3-raisingboys.blogspot this past spring. It's fun to post pics and stories of my kids. I found your blog through Hopehasreturned blog. I enjoy reading all of the mom stories out there.

Deborah said...

I just found your blog over the weekend (Thank you House Tour Links!) and really enjoyed reading through back entries. You've been added to my google reader subscription and I can't wait to read more! I've had a "media" blog for nearly four years but have only recently fallen down the rabbit hole of women's blogs. It's been a great experience. Congrats on your anniversary!

Deborah said...

please enter me! i LOVE both chic fil and cracker barrel (how to choose!). i've been blogging myself for 2 years and 1 month and reading blog for about 2.5 years

MaggieLousMommy said...

I don't have a blog because I'm too busy...reading other people's blogs! I've been hooked for over six months and subscribe to about 24 blogs (including yours) in a reader. I've thought of blogging, but I'm using the excuse that I have a two year old and another baby on the way not to start.
LOVE your blog!

Ashley said...

I LOVE sweet tea!!! When I lived in B'ham I would crave Milo's sweet tea. Ummm. I have been blogging for almost two years now. I am sooo addicted. Thanks for the giveaway!

Happy Blogoversary!

Jeni said...

I've been blogging for a little over a year. I started out mainly to keep my out-of-town friends updated on what's going on in our lives, but I've met a lot of new friends, and I love the sense of community!!

I'm already a subscriber!

the blubaughs said...

I'm drooling just thinking about this prize! I've been an avid blog reader for about 5 months now, but haven't been as successful keeping up with my own.

samsakara said...

I have been blogging and reading blogs for over a year now. I admit I scrapped my blog and started over for what ever reasons though. But I have been having fun reading so many creative and neat blogs out there.

samsakara@twcny.rr.com

Shannon @ Rocks In My Dryer said...

Dude! That is an awesome giveaway. I've been reading blogs for four years, and writing my own for three. And I wouldn't get SWEET tea, I'd get UNSWEET sweetened with Splenda. I'm a Southern girl, but I'm a Southern girl with waistline issues.

(How long has this new header been here? I love it.)

Megret said...

I've been blogging since I first found out I was pregnant w/ our first, in early 2004. I've been reading other blogs for a year or two longer than that. Now, I can't imagine my life without blogging!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Lynn said...

Woo Hoo!!! Happy Blogoversary to you! I too have been blogging for about a year. I started it as a way to keep friends and family up to date on our lives as a military family in Korea, but it grew into so much more. We are back in MD, and I'm still blogging...

You are most certainly in my google reader....and have been for some time. This is one of my favorite places to stop. Thanks!

Robin ~ PENSIEVE said...

I've been blogging three years and you amaze me with all you've accomplished in such a short period of time. I KNOW you've invested in the blogging community, and it's nice to see your hard work paying off. :)

I am subscribed, and yes ma'am, I love me some sweet tea four seasons a year :). Thanks for that chance (if I crumple the corner of my entry, will that give me a better chance of winning???? :) )

I wondered what you meant exactly with your tweets last night...now I know (it was all I could do to get my giveaway post written! I wouldn't "allow" myself to enter any of the ones I kept seeing mentioned in Twitter!).

Thanks for sharing with us!

Deb said...

Ooh! I love tea! On an old blog (I think I'm on number three now?) I participated in a Portsmouth Tea Company giveaway where I wrote a post advertising their giveaway and received a whole tin of free tea! That was a sweet deal :).

I've been blogging since 2002, I think; it's hard to keep track. I also subscribe to a number of feeds (yours among them!) and spend a shameful amount of every day checking Google Reader...

elizabeth P. said...

Congratulations on your 1 year! Being from down south my one missed item has been the food! This would take care of the tea, now I just need the boiled peanuts. I am queenesperfect at yahoo.com

Becca said...

I've only had a public blog for a month but I have been reading blogs for as long as I can remember. I love Chick Fil A so I am really excited, thanks!

Smellyann said...

Happy Bloggiversary!!! It's almost mine, too, in November I think. I've been reading blogs since about Feb of this year when my friend introduced me to Bloggy Giveaways! Thanks, I hope I win!!!!

heidi said...

Happy Blogoversary to you!

I've been bloging and reading blogs since they were called online diaries, not blogs. LOL About 8 years now, I think. I took a big long 3 year break kand just recently got sucked back in and picked up the addiction right where I left off.

Lisa said...

Happy blogoversary!

And OMG, a YEAR of Chick-Fil-A sweet tea?! I would be in heaven. Sign me up, and thanks for the giveaway!

Julie D said...

I've had a blog about 3 or 4 years. I've been blogging regularly for about 2 years. (Regularly varies from daily to twice a month! But my goal is 3 times a month).
We don't have a Chick Fil A here (darn) or Cracker Barrel (darn again), but we do have both in Albuquerque.

Jennifer (mom of four) said...

I have been blogging for 2 years and reading blogs for about 2 1/2 years. I love it!

We love CHick fil A sweet tea!!

What a great giveaway!

Deci said...

Wow, what a great gift :)

I have been blogging for almost two years now and love it! I have met so many great people through this online community.

Love getting your feed every day.

Amber, that's me! said...

Good morning! I am addicted to reading blogs. I have given up watching tv (except for during project runway season) to read blogs all the time! I have been reading them for about a year and a half, but have been really "into" them for about 6 months or so maybe. I just love my google reader. It is so handy. I think everyone should have a blog on their family or their talents. Thanks for the chance to win a sweet giveaway!

Amy said...

I have been blogging for almost a year, and never thought I'd be "good" at it, but it's fun! I have been reading blogs for a few years. And...we LOVE Chick-fil-A around here! :)

Tara aka "Mama Koala" said...

Oh my, I LOVE sweet tea. I've been blogging since January--when my son was born, and started a couponing blog more recently.

Heather @ Desperately Seeking Sanity said...

I've been blogging on a personal level for almost 2 years, but on a business level for almost 4.

And I'm a subscriber, just not a commentor, typically, but don't take it personally, because, yeah... i'm severely lacking in the comment luv department.

rebecca said...

Hmmm, I only have a blog for my son right now... (to let out of town family in on his life) but I've been working on that for almost a year. I need to start one of my own!

Gaitha said...

Wow what a GREAt giveaway! I love chick-fil-a. I started my blog about 4 years ago, but have not been the best at keeping up with it, so I have just really started back the last few months trying to be faithful to it:)It helps being a newer mom with almost all family living in different states, to be able to let them keep up with us and emmalai.Thanks for the giveaway!

PS said...

I've done a family blog for 3 years now, and run a green blog for almost a year!

thediaperdiaries said...

I have never, um, had sweet tea. Cause I am a Yankee and we don't have such things unless you count the McDonalds stuff I have been warned to stay away from.

Have been blogging for a little over a year. Reading you for about 6 months. Love it!!

Jean said...

Wow! I can't imagine a year supply of sweet tea and maybe a few Chick Fil A sandwiches to go with it. I love this giveaway.
I have been blogging a year and a half now and am sorry that I didn't start sooner.

Staci at Writing and Living said...

I've been blogging four years. Four years ago, I usually had to explain what a blog was (on the rare occasion that I told someone about it, as it was kind of seen as a weird hobby back then). It's been neat to see how it's grown since then.

Tuesday Girl said...

I heart both chick fil a and cracker barrel! I have bene blogging for four years and reading them for the same amount of time!

I am a huge sweet tea addict which is rare for Michigan, lol. Great giveaway!

I've been blogging a couple years now. I started blogging about the same time I started reading blogs.

amy purple said...

I've been reading blogs probably for about 5 years now, but only have had mine up for about 3 years. Man, i love cracker barrel and chick-fila! Mmm! pposwaps(AT)gmail.com

Stacy said...

I have not started blogging, but started reading them a year ago when my son was born. It was great to read stories about women dealing with their children. I would love the Chick-fil-a GC, its our new favorite place to eat.

I have been blogging for about 6 months but I have been drinking sweet tea since I was born! Yum!

Unfortunately, we don't have either of the places you mentioned here locally in Eastern Oregon...but our Starbucks makes great tea!

I also subscribed to your blog today. Thanks so much for this offer!

stacey @ tree, root, and twig said...

I wrote my first blog post on New Year's Eve, 2005. I remember when I told people that I was getting into "blogging," someone said, "I didn't know you liked to dance!" She thought I had said CLOGGING. That still makes me chuckle. :)

Kimberly said...

Happy! Happy! Happy Anniversary!!!

I love Sweet Tea - YUM!!

We have a Cracker Barrel upstate. If I won I think I'd give the gift certificate to my Dad. He and my step mom go there for breakfast often and it would be nice to treat them for a change since they are always doing nice things for us and treating us out to eat.

I also subscribe to your blog in Yahoo Reader (RSS).

Thanks so much!

Lori said...

So I'm not a sweet tea drinker, but before you jump on me, hubby is. I would love to be able to treat him to 80 sweet teas throughout the year. It would especially be helpful since he always thinks I waste my time reading blogs (which I have been dong since June of this year) but I think blogging is a great way to have a nationwide shared experience of living. Thanks!

Kathy - mom of many said...

Happy Blogging Anniversary, I've been a subsciber of yours for a few months already.

I started blogging with a xanga site a couple years ago but just switched over to blogspot a month ago. Finally got a background I like and have a little momentum going with consistency. It's nothing special with reviews or advertising, just my corner of the world documenting my life.
I love sweet tea and would love to use the gift card at my Chick-Fil-A, which is owned (btw) by a family with whom my son plays basketball. Thanks for the giveaway.

I like your redesign, but I miss that cute series of photos you used to have at the top!

Anyway, I've been blogging since January and it's an addiction. I can't not be online in the evenings, and would really like to get back to my knitting, but who knows when that will happen.

I'd love the Cracker Barrel gc, and I promise I'd drink lots of sweet tea with it!

Muthering Heights said...

Well, I would certainly be hoping for the Cracker Barrel gift card... *wink*

I have been blogging since may of this year, so my blog is still a bit of a baby. But I've been reading blogs since April, when my SIL started her blog, and I began following my friend Btrian's writings. That's also the time that I found you. They were the only three blogs I read until I started my own and joined the blogging world.

Happy Blogaversary!

Bettina said...

Fun! I've been blogging for about a year now, too and I have just as much fun reading other people's as I do writing in mine!

I've been blogging only for a few months, since the summer bloggy giveaways to be exact. But, I do enjoy it as much as I do reading other people's blogs.

I'm a BIG fan of sweet tea. I buy one every morning from McDonalds on my way to work...it's my coffee.

Be sure to check out my giveaway too!

My kids love Chic Fil A. I'm afraid we're not sweet tea drinkers - but I could gain a lot of weight with that many milk shakes!
