Reader / Follower Appreciation Giveaway

I somehow completely missed my blogiversary earlier this month, and I missed taking a screenshot of my 100th Twitter follower by a fraction of a second (I was literally SNAPPING THE DAMN PICTURE when it refreshed to 101 followers). In honor of those milestones, I am hosting a little giveaway to say thank you to everyone who reads this little blog o' mine or follows me on Twitter. I truly appreciate every last one of you - your comments, tweets, emails, texts, etc. make my life a million times better.

You can get up to three entries as follows - please leave one comment for each, and make sure to include an email address so I know how to contact you.

1) Leave a comment in which you ask me a question (anything you want to know!)
2) Leave a comment in which you tell me something you want to see more of in year 2 of The Diniwilks.
3) Leave a comment letting me know you blogged or tweeted about the giveaway (make sure you leave a link or @lauradiniwilk)

The winner will be randomly selected at 5pm Ohio time on Friday, February 24.

The prize?

A package full of goodies I hand selected just for you! It will be similar to a CDP, but you get to open it all at once (unless, of course, you WANT to save it for a crappy day). I will ship to the U.S. and Canada, but there might be a few less goodies for a Canadian winner to offset shipping costs :(

Good luck!

Contest closed - I will announce a winner tomorrow (Saturday)

Happy 100 followers!

1. What made you start blogging?
2. I want to see more pictures! Of you, your house, your family, whatever. I love seeing pictures of other bloggers.

LE Bean said...

Oh, I'm so glad I found you!
right, official questions now...

1) What things helped you get through those first few weeks with a baby? I have no idea what I'm in for...

PinkieBling said...

Oh gosh, I'm new to your blog so I could probably ask you a million questions. How about a 4-parter "favorites" question. What is your favorite:

a) pastime
b) food
c) movie
d) color

Favorites are probably super generic getting-to-know you questions, but for some reason I always want to know those 4 things about people.

M said...

Oh yay a contest! Ok Questions.. Hmm..
1) If you could take a vacation anywhere, money not a factor, where would you go and why?

M said...

Ok here's another
2) I want to read the rest of the "our story" sections. Like the birth of your girls and stuff. So yeah, get on that! :)

Misty said...

What is your idea of a perfect gift?

What is your "desert island" book?

What is your favorite treat?

I am not here to enter because you have already sent me a lovely goodie. I am just here to say thank you and congratulations!!

Mama Tully said...

Ohhh, fun! My question is more of a post request, I suppose...but what is your home like? Have you done a home tour and I missed it? If not, you should do one! I love seeing other's houses and decor style. Do share!

Kathy said...

Happy blogiversary!

I'd like to hear more stories about your MIL. She reminds me a lot of my former MIL and I have crazy fun comparing the two.

Congrats on one year of matrimony with blogger.

First - I want more random bins. Show me what's in them! TREASURES AWAIT!

Other things for you to blog about/that I want to know...how you are staying sane with having two kids, maybe a delightful embarrassing moment story a la Say Anything from YM, more about your career path and if you are happy about where you are at...

That's all I can think of off the top of my head!

Brenna said...

Just one question: aardvarks or wallabies?

LuckyMama923 said...

Love your blog...your MIL posts are what brought me here. My MIL/SIL are insane!
1) How has motherhood changed you? Better or worse?
2) If you could change the past would you? I.e. parenting decisions, life decisions, etc.
3) What to you like/hate the most about yourself.

I am not on twitter, so I cant participate in the last part. But love the blog!

Saly said...

Ok! Congrats on a year!!

1. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go, and why?

2. I'd like to read more in those tabs you have up top.

Shalini said...

Ooh, yay! OK, question that maybe you've already answered but I can't remember: what made you leave med school?

Courtney said...

Oh, where do I begin... :)

1. Do you want more kids? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? And how about... if you could, would you be a stay-at-home mom? Oh and what do you find to be the biggest challenge of motherhood?

2. More photos!!! :)

Which size crochet hook do you find you use the most often =)?

Mama Bub said...

What book(s) could you read over and over again?

Mama Bub said...

I would love to hear more MIL stories!!

Emily said...

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Emily said...

MIL stories! I love other people's in-law stories.

Suzanne said...

There are TONS of things I want to know! How are you doing on Weight Watchers? How do you get your hair so shiny? Talk more about your MIL. I like those stories.

Congrats on the milestones!!

Life of a Doctor's Wife said...

Yay! Happy blogiversary!! I'm so glad I found your blog. :-)

My question is... Could you please share some more horrific in-law stories with us?

Jessica said...

Eeps. I've been waiting until I could get on a computer with Twitter (it's blocked on mine), but still haven't.
