And This is Where I Give Away Something Really BIG!

*Update* I've closed this contest down and am busy cleaning up the comments and will announce the winner today! 

I'm going to forego all the funny business and skip to the biggest giveaway I've ever done on this blog o mine.

Through an unplanned turn of events, my hubby's company awarded him some shopping points and we got this in the mail: 



A beautiful pink Kate Spade Hobo Handbag, valued at $245.


And it's just not his color.

Since I'm still toting the beautiful purse my hubby gave me last Valentine's Day, I thought I'd give this one away!

{And let me add, this is a gorgeous purse. It's big (13" tall, 13" wide) and roomy, with pockets and zippers. It's a great shade of pink for the Spring with an adorable black and white polka dotted interior. I better stop or I will want to keep it).

So, if you'd like to win this designer purse that comes with a protective bag and lots of class, do the following: 

How to Enter

Thanks for making me laugh at myself.
