Y'all Made Me Do This...{Giveaway}

About a month ago, I decided I wanted to expand my blog.
Try for a bigger audience.
Meet more people.
Challenge myself.
Blogging is my creative outlet and I wanted to share it with others.

So, I began commenting on people's blogs, even though in the past I thought that would make me weird.
I networked through SITS.
I began to actually use my Twitter.
I started to follow more people.

And in one month, my readership jumped by 20 people.  I told myself that when I got to 50 readers, I would host a giveaway.
Here goes...

I'm hosting my first giveaway to say thank you and to encourage you to keep commenting, keep reading and when you feel like it, tell your friends about me.

Here's what you get:


Above is the Pedi Confetti kit.  In it, you will find:
Burt's Bees Peppermint Foot Lotion
Does this make anyone think of that part in Mean Girls, "Man, your face smells like peppermint!"
Princess Pink Nail Polish by Rimmel.

A pedi egg.
You see where I'm going with the Pedi Confetti kit?  
A home pedicure-if you're like me and STILL have not gotten that pedicure.

And finally, a half dozen of my personally made cascarones.  
Show someone you care by knocking them over the head with an egg shell filled with confetti.
I can't begin to explain how tired I am of vacuuming up glitter; so I'm sharing the love!

I bet you want to win, don't you?  
You need the Pedi Confetti kit in your life, I get it.

Here's how you do it {win, that is}:
(Leave a separate comment for each entry; complete as many as you like!)
  1. Be a follower of Life as Topher's Mama.
  2. Follow me on Twitter (@virginiajeanne).
  3. Tweet, blog or Facebook this giveaway (leave one comment for each that you do).
Giveaway ends Friday, April 8th at midnight.
Winner to be announced Saturday.

Thank you again!

CONGRATS on 52 followers to be exact! Our blogging stories are so similar it's insane! Especially our crafty or "non crafty" side should I say! You give me great inspiration! And I might add that after a stressful semester of school this giveaway looks appealing :)

I'm now following you on twitter... but... I really don't need your giveaway. Please use it for someone that can use it. (I already have a pedi egg, lotion, and polish). I know I'll be missing out on your cascarones... but that's ok.

I missed #CommentHour, again! Ugh!
Even though I wanted to stop by and say ‘hey’!
