A lot of exclamation points . . . and a giveaway!!!--CLOSED

It’s Monday! I don’t usually say such a thing accompanied with an exclamation point, but I promised something special today to celebrate this blog’s one year anniversary, so that most definitely deserves an exclamation point! Or two!! Three would be pushing it though.

Hey can we pause for a minute so I can show you some of my wrinkles? It’s just that I was taking some pictures of myself like a blogger is apt to do and I thought this captured them (the Wrinkles) real well. Hello eye! Hello mouth!
Anyway, where was I?

Well, let me just say I find it both awesome and weird that there are people (a lot of whom I haven’t bribed or even met in real life) who started reading my blog a year ago and are still reading it today. I mean you guys, I’m nutso in case you haven’t noticed! But bless your hearts these stat thingamajiggers show that people are still visiting, and some of you even leave comments. Gosh.

I guess the best way to celebrate all this craziness is to do a giveaway. Yesssssssssssss!

I thought long and hard about what to give and I think Target pretty much sums “me” up. Classically designed. Stylishly cheap. Red. Awesome. Wondrously in existence.
One lucky reader will win a $25 gift card to Target, probably my all time favorite store. I would live there for a brief part of my life if they let me, and by brief I mean a few years.

I know $25 is not an insane amount, but it’s enough to perhaps buy a pillow.

Like this one. I’ve been trying to convince myself that it would look good on my couch.


Or maybe some new sandals for summer.



Or diapers for the more practical minded.




Even $25 worth of gum!

Heck. It’s your world to do what you will. Maybe in your little world there’s a brand new lime green lamp suddenly sitting on your side table. Lime green!

Alrighty then.

To enter this giveaway leave a comment on this post answering the following question:
Does watching Bob Ross make you believe in unicorns, rainbows, mountains, and gently moving streams?

You can also get up to 4 additional entries by doing any of following. Be sure to leave a SEPARATE COMMENT for each one that you do so they can all be counted.

      *Tweet about this giveaway (mention @ramblingsarah and link 
        back to this post)
     
      *Blog about this giveaway (leave link)

Giveaway will be open until Monday, April 25 at 11:59 PM (MT). Winner will be chosen at random and announced Tuesday, April 26th.

Happy Anniversary yo!



*Target did not sponsor this post. Gift card was purchased by me. Magic may have also been involved. And lots of sugar.
