Celebrating ... you, dear reader!

Earlier this week, this little blog collected its 100th follower.

I can hardly believe it.

When I started blogging, I didn't know what this blog would become.  I'm not a newlywed (not even dating), a mommy, a great cook, a fashionista, a crafty person, etc.  All I knew was I needed a writing outlet, so that's what this space is.  Sometimes it's light hearted.  Sometimes it's personal.  But it's always always genuinely me. I am humbled and flattered that so many people care to read what I have to say.

As a "thank you," I am giving out a package of my favorite things -- kind of like Oprah, but less extravagant.

Here's what's in the 100th Follower Giveaway:
$10 itunes credit (sent via e-mail)
A beautiful piece of jewelry made by my friend, Meg
Super soft socks
Scentsy bars in Autumn Sunset and Peppermint Dreams
Essie nail color in Eternal Optimist
Mary Kay Mini Satin Hands Set
Mary Kay Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
Sour Patch Kids

Pretty awesome, right?

All you have to do is leave me a comment with your favorite quote (movie, song, inspirational, funny, etc.) as well as the GFC name you follow under.  I want to make sure this prize gets to a loyal reader.  I'll be picking my winner Sunday night at 10 p.m., so get to it!

And thanks again for following "Unabashedly Me."  This blog and the blogging world have been wonderful to me the last few years.  I look forward to seeing what's in store for the future.

  8. Bumper Sticker Guy: [running after Forrest] Hey man! Hey listen, I was wondering if you might help me.
