My Favorite Things Holiday Giveaway: Win a $500 Amazon Gift Card! [CLOSED]
Happy December 12th! I am SO excited to begin counting down the 12 days of Christmas!
You guys have been asking me left and right if I’d be holding another 12 Days of Christmas vlogging series this year. While I’d love to, all we’re REALLY doing over here is cuddling a newborn. But! Starting today, I will be holding multiple giveaways for some of my favorite things and you can bet that they are in.cred.i.ble. I promise!
These giveaways are not sponsored and are given by me to show how much I appreciate you being here. I LOVE YOU! Thank you for stopping by this rambly corner of the internet every day. It seriously means the WORLD to me.
To kick things off on this first day of Christmas, I’m giving away two $500 amazon gift cards! This gift card will be sent to you electronically, so you will receive it well before Christmas. Like you will receive it two or three days from now.

What an amazing giveaway!! I feel so lucky that 2017 has been a good, memorable year for me. Best memory? I would have to say the day I got married! Close runner up would be the day my husband and I drove through the Scottish highlands. Happy holidays!
My memory is of breaking my wrist in March. I definitely won’t forget this year.
I already follow you of course! My favorite thing of 2017 is getting pregnant with baby #2!
I think my favorite memory of 2017 would have to be celebrating my first wedding anniversary with my husband. We took a road trip and spent the entire week relaxing.
My email is email@example.com!
Oh and I do follow you on both accounts already of course!
The best part of 2017 for me was the birth of my 3rd son. He’s such a doll baby!
My favorite memories of 2017 have been watching my baby boy grow into a tiny little man. He will be 2 in June, and the past 6 months especially have been overwhelming with all that he’s learned!
There’s so many to choose from! I got engaged, moved to England, and have traveled to more countries in the last year than I had in the previous 29. I guess getting engaged tops the list, although I didn’t let him actually ask the question! I just kind of said yes and grabbed the ring.
This is amazing! My favorite memory was buying our house!! We now get to permanently live at the beach 😍
Following on both and preordered your book months ago! Thanks for hosting the giveaway and for all
Your amazing recipes!
Oh and my fav memory was having my baby!
My favorite memory of the year was celebrating my sweet 2 year old with a Lightning McQueen birthday party! He’s just the best!!!
My favorite memory was our baby boy being born!
Great giveaway! I follow you on both Facebook and Instagram. My favorite memory of 2017 would be seeing my daughter take her first steps a couple of months ago!
Favorite memory of 2017 is a tough one. There’s not one specific memory, just the feeling of being lucky to have a great husband and amazing son who both bring me joy every day!
Thanks for the chance for such a great prize!!
Long time follower on IG and FB :) My favorite part of the holidays is seeing my kids excitement grow each year. Right now they are still young (6, 3 and 3) but I know the oldest is going to lear the real deal soon so I am embracing this as much as I can. And…baking!! I adore holiday baking!!
Just bought myself The Pretty Dish as an early Easter present 💁🏻♀️ Who needs candy when you have lots of yummy new recipes?!?
I follow you on Instagram but don’t have Facebook (long story) but if I did, I would follow you there as well. Can’t miss any of your goodness. My favorite memory of 2017 will be when my children are all home for Christmas. I haven’t seen my middle son in four months and that has been the longest we’ve gone. We miss him so much and can’t wait to see him. Luckily the other two are still at home.
My favorite memory is my farewell party in Vietnam before moving back to the US.
Such a generous offer from you! Following you on FB and Instagram. I’ve also pre-ordered your amazing new book! I love your recipes.
Congrats on your lovely 2017 with the new baby!
My happiest memory was matching at my top choice for residency! And I follow on fb/insta :)
I am following you on Facebook (actually thought I already was before now!). My favorite memory of 2017 was swimming with manatees during a vacation to Mexico. My 19-year-old son, husband and I shared this experience. We were so excited! it was truly a joy-filled moment and the expression of happiness on his face was one I will never forget.
Following on instagram and facebook!!! :)
My favourite memory from 2017 is my son’s first birthday. We went to South Africa (living in Germany) to spend it with his grandparents and uncle and it was just wonderful to have them all by his side. I ordered him his first (own) pizza with avocado which he ate lots of and loved it. We also went to see lots of birds and monkeys in a park close to the beach.
My favorite memory of 2017 is having my whole family together as my middle son graduated from high school. My least favorite was sending not one but two boys off to college this fall! Love your blog!
Just sent you my Pretty Dish pre-ordered info!!
Thanks again for the great giveaways!
I follow you on Facebook and IG. My favorite memory of 2017 was watching my niece perform at bucks county playhouse. She has discovered her God-given talent early and its amazing to watch it continue to bloom.
My favorite memory of 2017 was the birth of my daughter. She was also born in November :)
I will remember getting into library school this year! So exciting.
My favorite memory of 2017 was seeing the excitement on my daughter’s face when we told her she would be a big sister in 2018!
I ordered The Pretty Dish on Sept. 13, 2017 and am looking forward to receiving it.
I am a longtime follower on both Facebook and Instagram!
My favorite memory of 2017 was flying to Baltimore to surprise my daughter when she came home from her deployment to Afghanistan. We were able to spend the night together and she continued on to NC in the morning and I flew back to WNY. I cannot even put into worlds how it feels when you see your daughter walk through those doors in the airport and know she made it home safely again.
My favorite memory from this year was my wedding day! We had the best time celebrating with everyone it couldn’t have been more fun. I’ve been following you on FB and instagram forever now- thanks for all you do with this blog and for the awesome giveaway!
My favorite memory is learning to slow down and enjoy the small moments. So glad I was able to learn this while my kids are still young.
My favorite memory is the birth of our 3rd baby! He’s almost 4 months and is just the sweetest. Already following you!
My favorite memory was my daugter being born this summer!!
2017 has been a memorable one for sure, but my favorite memory was going to Switzerland for the first time and seeing the Alps up close – it was breathtaking!
My favorite memory was the birth of my sweet niece!
My favorite memory of 2017 is of my daughter graduating high school!
2017 has been awesome. Getting my PE was def the best memory…although joining SPM takes a close second ;)
Also pre-ordered The Pretty Dish. Can’t wait!
The best day of 2017 was the day I got married! July 2 :)
My favorite memory of this past year is getting engaged!
I love/like/follow you everywhere. My favorite memory? That’s hard, but I suppose it was when my husband took his oath of citizenship. He was more moved by the ceremony than either of us thought he would be, after living in the United States for 12 years. He looked so happy and so proud when he got his certificate, that for a moment I forgot the political reasons / nonsense behind his drive to get citizenship. Now he’s a dual citizen, and can travel freely in Europe and the United States. :- )
Best memory is my engagement!
My favorite memory of 2017 was our vacation to Edisto Island, SC. Excited to see what’s in store for 2018!
I pre-ordered Pretty Dish awhile ago too! Can’t wait to get it!
My best memory of 2017 by a far was flying from Ireland to Arizona to meet my beautiful 5 year old nephew for the first time. I’m so lucky to have more family in my life than I knew I had and can’t wait to see him again!
My favorite memory is sitting at the beach in Rehoboth on Columbus Day and watching a whale jump out of the water. It was incredible. 😱 (especially after I paid a small fortune to go whale watching in Northern California earlier that year.)
Thanks for being a special part of my year, too! So many great memories made with my kids over some of your recipes!
I also just preordered the book! I’ve been meaning to so this was good incentive :)
My wedding day July 1! It’s been a whirlwind of a year!
My favorite memory was graduating from veterinary school and finally getting to live in the same place (ie not a four hour flight away) from my boyfriend.
My favorite memory was buying a vacation house in Vermont. We live in New Jersey and having a mountain escape has been amazing. My 7 year old twins absolutely love mountain life! Happy holidays.
