an awesome giveaway

{i have to say, i really hope y'all will leave a comment on this one 'cause i am soooo excited.}

my first giveaway (that means hopefully there will be more later, right?!)...

i was contacted by CSN stores. they have over 200 online stores that carry all kinds of cool stuff--lamps, art, rugs, kitchen stuff, home appliances, tv stands, even legos!
check it all out by clicking here.

they would like to give one of you a $60 voucher to buy anything you want from one of their sites!

so, all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me why you come to my blog and you will be entered into the giveaway.

i am so curious why all you peeps check in on me and my little family so it will be neat to hear the responses.

but you have to comment!
all you stalkers need to come out of the woodwork, ok?
no sending me an email or stopping me in the hall or cul-de-sac, alrighty? 'cause i really want you to win!

there is a TON of stuff on the sites i would pick and $60 really goes a long way. here are a few things i might choose in case you were wondering. it is so hard to narrow it down and i'm all over the place, so bear with my complete and total randomness of the things i picked below, k?

i love these prints of bathing suits. they sell these in a series of four.
i've seen them hanging in a laundry room and i love the look.

and this wallpaper, oh my goodness. can you imagine how cute it would be in a powder room, or on a feature wall in a bedroom? so pretty.

i love this lamp. the polka dots, the aqua, the green. yum. and it's not just for a baby's room either.


a bit more grown up, this print would be pretty anywhere in my house.

and last but not least--it would be a crime for me not to include this little teapot. it's 100% me. don't ya think?


a winner will be randomly chosen on wednesday, may 12th at 4pm.

so leave me a comment and that's it. you're in. like flynn.
good luck!

Hi Amy! Cool thing to do! I come to your blog because it's real...I know your good days and your bad days and you admit to that. Sometimes I need to feel normal and know that other people go through the same things...especially with having a little one who has an extra one...

Even more so, I come because your family is so cute! Ben steals my heart and I love hearing about all of the great things your other kids do!

Amy, I read your blog because of your kitchen and your love for Pottery Barn and vintage finds at garage sales. Ha, that is just part of it! I discovered you by way of Meg and your kitchen, but I am a stalker because I often identify with you, your style, your family, your work, your no fluff blogging and I love looking at your links to other great blogs, people (I was a crying mess after reading about Nella) and Etsy finds. Even if I don't win I will continue to stop by one day at a time! Happy Mother's Day!

I love reading your blog not only for a sanity check but because you inspire me. You too are a mother of three and you don't let the CHAOS stop you from being an absolutely fabulous mother that spends time creating and touching every part of your home and those who share you life with you:) Who needs Martha Stewart when I have you:)

i may have missed ur deadline but u should know why i follow ur blog anyway...;)

i found ur blog thru another one that i follow (u won a giveaway on hers actually), and i was hooked right away. i liked ur style and it was refreshing to read ur mommy posts too. u seem so organized and on top of things yet ur honest when u feel down. as women we need that honesty and comfort of knowing we're not alone. but the thing that hooked me the most was ur beautiful family. and i want to thank you bcuz even though my eyes are open, u found a way to open them even more. i love learning, and i have learned so much from you! :)
