Wow, anyone who reads this blog may believe that I have fallen off the face of the earth this last year. I guess my first real job outside of the home, albeit part time, was enough to drain all extra energy for writing. But now it is summer, and since I have a few more weeks off I am planning to do some extra posts. Cross your fingers!
To kick off my summer posting I am doing a giveaway to go along with my summer theme. The theme is MY FAVORITE THINGS. I am going to share my favorite music, books, blogs, website, recipes, places to shop, and most of all, the BEST (and sometimes worst), of Utah.
This idea has been kicking around in my mind for a while, but it wasn't until I spontaneously posted on Facebook that I decided I wanted to do a contest. You see, two of my absolute favorite things are music and books. They are my tried and true pick-me-ups. Well lately they have fallen very short. I am sick of all my music, and when I looked around on the net and itunes for some new music to love I came up with nada. Very depressing.
But I figured that's okay, I've still got books. But nothing I read lately does anything for me. No excitement, no anticipation for bedtime just so I can open that book and enter a different world. I went to the library today and scanned the shelves for almost an hour, and didn't come away with anything that excites me.
My peeps, this is intolerable. Completely unacceptable. So here's my giveaway: (You can do one or both options)
OPTION 1: Tell me a song you think I will love in a comment. (has to be one I don't already love, like or hate, which of course you can't know so that's part of the fun) If I end up loving it, you get a $10 itunes gift card. (or a CD mix of my faves if you live close)
OPTION 2: Tell me a book you think I will love in a comment. (has to be one I don't already love, like or hate, which of course you can't know so that's part of the fun) If I end up loving it you get a $10 amazon gift card. (or possibly a book)
There is NO LIMIT to how many times you can enter. :) Just as long as you have a new book or song you can enter over and over. I hope to get LOTS of great ideas.
Now, for those that are still reading here are a couple of hints. First, I do not usually like country. Second, I don't like books with descriptive sex or excessive bad language.
