Bright Side Blog Bash Day 4!!

**Don’t forget to visit Lacie’s Blog to enter to win her prize pack for today!

Happy Thursday, everyone!

I so enjoyed reading your posts yesterday about the women who inspire you, and I was moved by how many of you are inspired by your moms. My answer to that same question is my mom, too! 🙂

Let’s begin by announcing yesterday’s winner of the All About Women Wednesday prize pack!

Congratulations to Ganise!

Make sure you email me asap and send me your shipping address!

It’s New Release Thursday!

I’m sorry, readers, but there’s no vlog today. I had good intentions, but unfortunately I had a rough day yesterday as far as morning sickness goes, so I wasn’t able to get my vlog recorded.

But that’s okay! We’ve got an AMAZING prize pack for today’s giveaway!

A 3-pack of books– all of these are BRAND NEW RELEASES!!  I’m dying to read all of these myself, so I know you will be, too!

Included in this prize pack: Hidden in the Heart by Catherine West, Sandwich with a Side of Romance by Krista Phillips, and Accidentally Amish by Olivia Newport. (These books are all contemporary stories, not historicals.)

Would you like to win this prize pack? I know you would!

In order to win, answer the following question in the comments below: (This question is in honor of Krista’s book) What is your favorite kind of sandwich? 

The winner will be announced tomorrow!

I am a total sandwich junkie. There’s no sandwich I’ll turn down. I LOVE them. One of my favorite kinds of sandwich is a family recipe that my uncle made up that we call The Woggie. It’s roast beef and swiss with our family’s homemade dressing toasted on pumpernickle bread. My mouth is watering.
