My First Give-a-Way!!!

I am SO excited to be able to share with you what an awesome gift I got to preview. What makes this more exciting for me, is that in getting to preview this gift, I get to give away something to my readers!!

I was blessed to get to preview a Build a Bear!! I opened my box and squealed (yes, at 44 years old it's still okay to squeal over a stuffed animal!!) at the cutest, cuddliest Koala bear I'd ever seen! This bear was gray and white with the cutest black nose and eyes! He was wearing a Build a Bear t-shirt and I gave him an immediate hug!! My son, who by the way has his first girlfriend, begged me to let him have it for his girlfriend and I looked him square in the eyes and said, "NO!" (Sorry Ashley....) He came with a birth certificate which allows me to register him (I named him Kirby by the way) in Build a Bearville and there you can play neat games and lots of fun stuff.

Any of you that have read my blog know that I try to give ideas and encouragment on how to live a simpler, more frugal lifestyle and how to be the wife Christ has called us to be and so, being wise with our spending is one of the things I focus on. Here's where my give-a-way comes in.....

I have a $10 gift card for Build a Bear that one of my readers will get to spend!!! (Told you I'm excited!!) And yes...you can buy a Build a Bear for $10!!! I got on their website at www.buildabear.com and found several of the cutest animals for $10 and with Christmas just around the corner...(see where this is going??)...you can get a great Christmas gift for that special little (or 40something) someone in your life!!!

How can you get this gift card?? Just leave me a comment with your e-mail address so that I can notify you if you're the winner.

I will close this give-a-way on Friday, October 31 and announce the winner on November 1st.

Kirby and I will be anxiously waiting on you!!!

Blessings.....

Wow! My little girl would have grabbed it up and disappeared quickly. She and I are bear lovers around here, I have 3 that she eyes a lot. Congratulations on Kirby!

I'm planning to take my grandson to Build A Bear for his Christmas gift this year. The coupon would be a nice blessing. Blessings on you and your bear!

My six-year-old always passes by Build-a-Bear at the mall with sad, round eyes (because I'm too cheap, I mean frugal, to buy one for her). She'd flip for this. Thanks!
