A New Grand Prize Winner in the Blog Bash!!

A very special announcement! We have a new winner for the Bright Side Blog Bash GRAND PRIZE!

Congratulations to Karen Lange!!

Karen, please contact me asap! Can’t wait for you to get these amazing prizes, and thanks so much for your participation in the Blog Bash!!

Ladies and gents, I’m so sorry that my posting has been a little sporadic lately. As you all know, I recently announced that I’m expecting, and unfortunately, I’ve been suffering from some pretty dabilitating morning sickness. To cap it off, my doctors are monitoring a minor pregnancy issue (no worries– the baby is fine) that requires me to “take it easy”. Ha! I’m still not sure how to do that with 2 boys and a hubby to take care of.

Anyway, most days I just haven’t felt like doing much, so I haven’t. Forgive me.  I’m really hoping that my energy will return soon, that I’ll be able to eat like a normal human, and that this little baby will give me a break from the sickness.

Thanks for your prayers and well wishes. I appreciate all of you so much!

Bright Side Blog Bash Day 5!!

Well, the Bright Side Blog Bash is nearing it’s end. Don’t worry– we still have one more day of winners to announce, but I must thank all of you for your participation this week. It’s been so fun reading your comments. My heart skips a little beat when the winner’s name is drawn for each contest– I’m always so excited for you!

Thanks for helping me and Lacie distract ourselves from not being able to attend the ACFW conference this weekend. We’ve had a wonderful time promoting our author friends and we hope that even if you didn’t win copies you’ll check out some of their books and support them as well!

Also, I would love it if you would continue visiting my blog. I will still continue to do giveaways from time to time and I love your comments on my regular posts. If you’re not a subscriber, please do so. This is the best place for me to connect with you readers, so please don’t hesitate to comment, email me, or follow me on Facebook or Twitter!

This sandwich lover really enjoyed reading your comments yesterday about your favorite sandwiches. Seriously– I’m going to have to try some of those!

And now to announce yesterday’s winner of the 3-book New Releases Prize pack. Congratulations to Melody Durant!

Melody, I have to admit, you haven’t sold me on the peanut butter and mustard sandwich, but since your name was randomly chosen, I’ll still let you win. 😉 Please email me with your mailing address asap (and maybe include a little more explanation on this sandwich recipe…).

Today is Grand Prize Friday!!

Look at that collection of amazing books. Doesn’t it look awesome?? I’m so excited about giving all of these books to one lucky winner. I mean, it’s like hitting the jackpot! There’s something for everyone in this stash– a little mystery, a little romance, a little history, a little Christian Living… It’s a fantastic collection!

  • A keepsake bookmark
  • No good book can be enjoyed without CHOCOLATE, so I’ll be sending you some of my favorite kinds!
  • Other goodies for a perfect reading experience (these are top secret!)
  • Harvest of Rubies by Tessa Afshar
  • A Log Cabin Christmas Collection, featuring Liz Johnson’s novella, A Star In the Night
  • Wildflowers from Winter by Katie Ganshert
  • A Bride Opens Shop in El Dorado, CA by Keli Gwyn
  • Submerged by Dani Pettrey
  • Mama Needs a Time Out by Heather Riggleman
  • God of All Comfort (Eight Lessons About Hope in Christ) by Donna Pyle
  • A 3 e-book set from author Linda Kozar including Misfortune Cookies, A Tisket, A Casket, and Dead As a Doornail

Okay friends, if you want to win today’s GRAND PRIZE, you need to leave a comment answering the following question: What’s your wildest dream occupation? 

For me it’s Broadway. I’d give anything to be on Broadway. I was a musical theater major for a while in college and occasionally I regret not sticking with that path. Of course, I fully believe that God has me right where he wants me and I wouldn’t change a thing about my life or my family, but when I’m belting out a tune from Wicked or Les Miz at the top of my lungs, it’s hard for me not to imagine what it would be like to perform it on a Broadway stage.

So I want to know from you about your “dream” occupation.

Good luck, contestants. The winner will be announced tomorrow (Saturday)!


Writers– last chance to submit your blurbs to win one of the amazing prizes below!! We’ll be announcing those winners tomorrow, too! Refer to the post on day 1 to make sure you’ve commented with all the correct information.

Again, thanks everyone for your participation this week. Make sure you check back for the winners tomorrow and keep visiting and connecting with me and my co-host for this week, the amazing and beautiful Lacie Nezbeth!
