It's a Giveaway today!

*****Times's Up!*****
Comments are closed, and I'll announce a winner shortly!
There's a giveaway carnival going on today at Bloggy Giveaways. Thanks, Shannon!

Last week, I mentioned my fondness for the scent of lavender. I don't wear a perfume, and some days I don't even shower. And it is usually at the end of those non showered, pony-tail days, that I find myself in need of a warm bath before I crawl into bed.

While I enjoy a nice bath, I usually don't have time for one. Most nights, after the kids are in bed, I am ready for bed myself. Or, I'm at least ready to sit down and watch Jon and Kate plus 8 so that I can take comfort in the fact that there is a mother out there who is indeed, more crabby than I am. But, crabby or not, when I do take the time to indulge in some time for myself, I feel so much better.

A little lavender scent in my tub and some lavender lotion on my so-very-dry winter skin helps me to really relax and have a good nights sleep. And who couldn't use a good nights sleep?

So I'd like to pass along a little of that lavender relaxation to you.






I have for you, newly purchased, unopened bottles of lavender scented body wash and body lotion to give away. They are from Bath and Body Works' Aromatherapy line, and they smell great. Subtle, not overpowering, and clean.
But, wait!
There's one more thing.
I'm throwing in a book for you to read after you're all soaked, bathed and moisturized in lavender.
Because I love to crawl into bed with a good book.
I also love yellow Labs. Especially my new little yellow lab.


So the winner of my giveaway will also receive this book. Marley & Me by John Grogan. I laughed out loud, I cried, and I thanked the Patron Saint of Pets that I didn't end up with a dog as crazy as Marley. My book club read this book a year ago and it was enjoyed by non-dog owners as well.
I think you'll enjoy it a a lot too. Especially since you'll be so relaxed and smelling good.
So, if you think you'd use and enjoy these lavender products and would enjoy reading Marley & Me, leave a comment and I'll draw a winner on Friday afternoon. I'll ship anywhere, too!
That's it!


Koko and I wish you Good Luck!
Oh, and no emails from you PETA fanatics please. It's a crate, not a cage. And we use it humanely, and for training, and all that jazz. And I would never turn her into a coat. Or a muff. If I used muffs. Actually, I still have a white rabbit muff from when I was six, so I don't even need a muff. And I only put her in the crate for this picture because she won't move more than 12 inches away from me and it's kind of hard to take a picture that way. Then she was let right back out and free to continue on thru her three bowls of food a day. Food that is natural, healthful and organic. So see, she's fine. She eats better than my kids, OK?
Okay.

Sister Honey Bunch said...

Heck I'd take an opened half-used bottle of lavendar body lotion and bubble bath. And a dog-eared book that fell into the bath water.

Autumn said...

I almost bought that book! Hmmm, maybe you'll love to give it to me instead! Teehee.

Oh, and we so get a racket from several of our friends about the crate training. But puppy pants loves the crate. She conks right out at night and sleeps through. Trust me, if she hated it, we'd know in a HEARTBEAT!

Suzy said...

I can't think of anything witty to write. Shoot. I love lavender! And books! And dogs! Oh that was special eh?

kari said...

Your dog is just so cute! And, we used a crate when our dog was a puppy, she loved it! She will still actually go, on her own, and lay in her crate at times. It's her little comfort zone.

Great giveaway, I love lavender, too. Thanks for offering it. Come over and enter my movie giveaway.
