Happy Birthday and Its A Giveaway Day!!

 Hello there blogland!!  

Today mark's what would have been my Mom's 57th birthday.  I miss her so much but I am thankful that I am still able to celebrate her and think about my wonderful memories of her.  She was such a beautiful woman and incredibly strong.  I am so thankful for the role model she was and how she shared her faith with me.  I am most thankful for her staying at home while I was growing up and driving me to elementary school almost everyday - each day in the parking lot she would bless me with the Lord to watch over me, before I got out of the car.  Thank you mom for all you have done and all you STILL do through memories that pop up even in your absence!!

I also have to give a shout out to my Dad as yesterday was his Birthday!!  Happy Birthday Papa, I love you so much!!  Thank you for your strength!!

I mentioned on here a number of posts ago that once I reached 200 posts I would host a giveaway...well 200 has come and gone and I still have yet to do a Giveaway -- until today as this is my 100th post this year!!

I have been trying to figure out what on earth I would like to giveaway.  So as today would have been my Mom's Birthday why not giveaway one of her favorite treats!!  I remember going to See's Candies and picking up these lollies often throughout my childhood.   I wanted to share these with ONE lucky reader.  You will receive 4 lollies, one each of Chocolate, Vanilla, Butterscotch, and Cafe Latte!!

 Assorted Lollypops
Description from the source itself: This is gourmet candy-on-a-stick for kids (and adults) that's fun to eat, lasts longer than regular chocolates and is every bit as rich and tasty. Candy fanciers of all ages love these unique square lollypops made from heavy cream, butter, and flavors of real vanilla, Colombian coffee, smooth chocolate and rich butterscotch.

  1. Beautiful words about your mother. Funny that your parents birthdays are a day apart. My parent's actually share the same birth date (diff year).

    And yes, of course I love the giveaway! My memory (triggered by the giveaway) was getting See's lolli's and chocolates every christmas from my Grandma in Cali. Every time my mom and I visit LA (or the west coast) I HAVE to pick some up!

  2. 100th post this year, YES!

    Wow, my mom is definitely on of my BFF's so I have countless memories with her. But, the one that sticks out the most is her joining me for a trip to Vancouver, BC. We have so much in common, so it is just fun and effortless. Shop a little, drink and eat a little, shop more, drink more, eat more. It just goes on and on and we both have a blast.
