Woot woot! It's finally Saturday! As you all know from my previous post, I have two very special things going on today:
First and foremost, I just want to thank each and every one of you who took the time to enter the giveaway and make it what it was. I had a total of 121 entries for Rafflecopter to choose from! I'm so happy to have so many participants. So, are you ready to hear the winner of the first-ever FreckledNettles giveaway?
Drum Roll, Please...
Debbie @ Accidently Delish, you are the official winner! Be sure to send me all of your info, girlfriend! Everything that you see here on the left will be heading your way. Congratulations!
And Now for Today's Post!
I'm only going to cover one other today because I have to jet over to my Hot Yoga class soon! I'm so excited!
Just as a little segue: as you all know, my family is my number one supporter of everything that I do. Whether I'm competing at a swim meet or simply celebrating a good grade in school, my family is sure to show their pride in various ways; I can honestly say that there is no better feeling than the feeling of love that I get from my family. Nonetheless, I wanted to share with you guys a little surprise that was delivered to me on-campus yesterday! I don't get care packages often, so I was like a kid on Christmas when I heard that there was a package waiting for me in the Castle (yes, my school has a castle on-campus)!
My mom knows that I'm a total sucker for flowers. She wanted to congratulate me on all of my accomplishments within the past month. She absolutely made my day yesterday. Love you, mom!
Anyway, my mom's surprise was kind of ironic to me. Shouldn't I be the one sending her flowers? Mother's Day is just around the corner, after all! In yesterday's post, I mentioned a great Mother's Day deal that I found from Erica over at EricaFinds while doing my daily blog browsin'. Thanks to Cleverbug, there is now a No Mom Left Behind promotion going on! It is especially great for those who may be financially cramped or simply have too much going on to make it to a Mother's Day brunch!
I didn't get a chance to go into too much detail, so I'll let you in on a few more things about this awesome opportunity. If you have access to a smartphone and are able to download the Cleverbug app, you can easily send your mom an extremely personalized greeting card (or two) straight from your mobile phone! The personalized cards can be made fun and memorable by using things such as family photos from Facebook or from you smartphone's camera roll. Cleverbug is truly a unique card store tailored to the sender and their recipient. The app is very easy to navigate. It even links itself directly to your Facebook (with your permission, of course) so that you can access photos and card recipients as well!
And it doesn't stop there!
So that just about wraps up today's post. Thank you again for all who entered the giveaway. Like I said, I have another giveaway in-store for you soon! Have a great Saturday, all!
