Gratitude and....a giveaway!!!!!

---------------contest over!! stay tuned for our winner!!--------------------------

So I thought I would start out 2010 with something fun! I am determined to make this year the best yet!
So here we go with a giveaway, since I am so thankful for all my dear sweet readers, your encouraging words, and your uplifting prayers. You have helped carry us through some very rough times and I am so very grateful!
I am also grateful for CSN for allowing me to do this great giveaway! Did you know they have over 200 stores so you can easily find anything you are looking for! From nursery furniture to decor to cooking utensils!! How great!!


These sweet little picture frames are adorable!!!! Would these not be precious in a little girls nursery!?


This cute toy from LeapFrog is great! Ages 6 months to 2 years! I love games that teach letters and I think you can never start to young!!


This little chopper is amazing! Think about the things you could do with this! From salsa, nuts, and baby food, this would be great to have!!

Alright, so how do you get a chance to win one of these fab gifts?? All you have to do is visit CSN and leave a comment telling me which site you would most likely shop at. Also let me know which of these three gifts you would like to have if you won!!

Also, in my last post, I shared with you all a song that was new to me that I love!! I can't believe I hadn't ever heard that song before! So, I bet there are countless amazing songs that I have never heard! So if you will, leave a separate comment sharing your favorite song with me! This way we all can find some great new songs and it will count as a second entry for the giveaway!!

I will leave this up until monday night, at which time I will randomly pick a winner!!

Thank you all so very much! God Bless!

(ps if you do not have a blog, no problem, just leave me your email so I can contact you!!)

Happy New Year!

Elle- your too cute, what a great way to start the new year :0)
(love all three of those gifts by the way...the leap frog toy is one I've had my eye on for awhile!)

As for shopping- I'm a little overwhelmed looking at everything there is to offer at CSN! I'm going to have to be vague and say I'd shop in pretty much any of the categories under baby and kids.

Danelle said...

And now for a song...
I highly recommend the Hand song by Nickle Creek. Honestly I highly recommend anything by Nickle Creek- they are an amazing band!

Christi said...

I've never heard of CSN Stores before. Wow, they offer a lot. I'd say I'd be most interested in the kids & baby stuff as well as home decor. And I'd say the frames would be my first choice but the others prizes are good with me too. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

Elle,

What a wonderful way to begin the new year! I went to the CSN stores website and was amazed by the selection of merchandise.

Since the children in my household are grown and living away, I would love to have some new patio furniture!

I love you!

I visited CSN, and the site I would most likely shop at would be the Housewares - Cookware site! Ironically enough, if I was lucky enough to win I would choose the Black & Decker chopper! Thanks for the chance!

They say the heart that gives...gathers..and yours must be so full of love :)
What a fantastic giveaway...
Well..Im not sure wheither this applies to bloggers out of the US..but will give it a whirl anyway.
I would most definitely shop under any of the categories under Babies and Kids..and if I had to choose a gift it would be the Trend Lab Heirloom Two Picture Frame Set...just adorable.

As for a song...there is song called "Beautiful"...sung by Damien Leith...I listened to it alot when Jacq was born and it still makes my eyes fill with happy tears x

hether78 said...

My favorite song would be Josh Grobin's "you raise me up". Definitely a powerful song, it evokes a lot of emotions!

Mandie said...

That food chopper needs to move into my house. :)

I know I'd spend all my time in the housewares/kitchen area of CSN. I have a serious problem with purchasing kitchen-related things.

Shanna said...

What a sweet giveaway. I don't think I could narrow it down to just one of the CSN stores, but I would probably start with one of the bedding set stores (I plan on getting married at some point TBA and this would be an item to start with). If I were to win, I would want the picture frames....no kids in my near future but I'd want them for my own room.

Happy New Year. Wishing your family the best in 2010!

Gail said...

What an amazing site for shopping. Thanks for sharing. Being a grandma of a 5 year old and 9 month old I would be likely to shop at All Children's Furniture.com but I also loved the site that included hall tables and benches. Very beautiful!

Gail said...

As for a song, I was blessed with the opportunity to attend a Mark Schultz concert about a year ago and love his music. He has a sweet tuned called "I Have Been There". If you have not heard it or the other awesome songs by Mark visit this site to enjoy http://markschultzmusic.com/media/

Michele P. said...

they have so many stores, and so much inventory it is hard to choose but I would shop in the babies and kids, pets, home decor and kitchen areas probably the most. My favorite gift would be the food chopper, my current one is on its last legs and I need one to make fresh salsa :) (and I'd be a weeping mess chopping onions by hand!) have a wonderful new year!

Michele P. said...

goodness, I listen to mostly latin music so not sure if you would or not...but my favorite song is Hoja en Blanco by Monchy y Alexandra and I also love most of their other music and I love Grupo Aventura's music as well... it is a form of romantic ballads called bachata music..you can check it on YouTube and watch the videos...many happy memories dancing bachata with hubby.

I just learned about CSN from you now! I immediately went to the children's furniture page. So.many.choices! I was pleased to see the variety as I am a big believer in children using furniture as soon as they can sit.

I would love the 2 photo frames.

If you have not heard this song before, keep a tissue handy when you click to hear it -

I just love Uncle Kracker's "Smile".....it makes me want to do just that! Happy New Year! :)

cdziuba said...

Well, I love baking, so Bakeware.com is a wonderful CSN store for me. I love the chopper, but also love the Leapfrog toy!

I would most likely shop at the bedroom furniture store and I like the picture frames as a prize.

cstironkat said...

I would like to shop at Lego and if I win I would like the little chopper.

cstironkat said...

One of my favorite songs is Will You Be There by Michael Jackson. I have loved that song from the 1st day I heard it.

aerialsmama said...

Hey Elle-
I love giveaways. I love the picture frames! They are great! I think I would shop in either the kids area or the living room decor area, I am in need of a redo of our living room right now. Totally boring since we repainted

aerialsmama said...

Hmmm, my favorite song right now. I love Sugarland, just about anything by them, but they are my fave right now. I love that they have redone "Betterman" by Pearl Jam it is really good!

FOKXXY said...

I would most likely shop at All Modern Furniture.com and I would choose the black and decker chopper.

FOKXXY said...

Right now my favorite song is "If it kills me" by Jason Mraz.. but running a close second is anything by Janis Joplin. lol.

Katie said...

Yay, who doesn't love free stuff. I never win but why not try right?!
So, I looked at their website and holy overwhelming. I have been looking at lots of storage and accents for the bedroom so that is what I would focus my searching on. I also love kitchen stuff since those two rooms are what I vow in 2010 to finish :)
Which leads me to my choice, the chopper. Mine broke a long while ago so it would be great to replace :)
As for songs, with all of the stuff going on with my family this last year between Riley and Brian was surprisingly Carrie Underwood So Small. The chorus really got me through all my runs that I used to debrief myself from the day of chaos!

susan said...

I love the blog... please enter me. The frames are just great!

The CSN stores are great especially the cooking one!

I would love to win the chopper!

Can't believe I'd never heard of CSN until now. One of the first stores I'd try is http://www.shoesgotsole.com/under Shoes, Bags and Luggage.

I would select the chopper, if lucky enough to be chosen. Thanks!

Tracey said...

I would shop the Home Decor the most.
