July 2016

I hope everyone had a fun 4th of July filled with family, friends, and lots of fireworks. If your schedule looks anything like mine, this should be a busy, but fun, month!

As many of you know, along with being new to the blogging scene, I have also started doing giveaways as well. I have had so much fun putting these together, and it has been a great way to reach out to the community. I have tried to incorporate a certain theme and/or season throughout these giveaways so that they are more useful and fun for whoever wins. I have also had the chance to use some local businesses for these giveaways, such as Bonehead Customz for my YETI cups and ShopBellaC for my giant float in my second giveaway. You should check these businesses out, if you haven't already. 

Here is a little look at what I have done in my giveaways so far:

In my first giveaway, I included a customized YETI Rambler 30 oz. tumbler along with other household items and goodies.  


My second giveaway was geared more towards the 4th of July. This one included a giant flamingo float, another one of my customized YETI Ramblers, and of course fireworks.


As you can see, we had a lot of fun with #FlamingoFriday at the office. 


Stay tuned and like my facebook page for more giveaways to come!
