Hoot-N-Annie is 1 today!!! Giveaway time!!!

I can't believe that a year has already passed since I started blogging. I was so reluctant to start this blog and now I can't imagine my life without it. I appreciate each and every comment I get. I can't believe that there are 97 people that actually want to follow along on my journey! The friendships I have made in the blog world is the most rewarding!

And to thank YOU... I am having a Birthday giveaway! Eeeee!! Here are the goodies up for grab:

(Sorry for the bad lighting... I meant to photograph this earlier but Poot and I went for an after dinner walk)
You could win: Vanna White Yarn in Pea Green (my favorite yarn color), nerd glasses socks, Liberty of London picture frame, Sally Hansen nail polish in Lime Light, Chipboard apple scrapbook, alphabet stamps, tree notepad, cappuccino lip balm, anchor notecards, tree tote, and one pair of crochet earrings (not pictured) you get to pick the color!

So what do you have to do win?? It is easy...
1. Leave a comment on this post telling what you are looking forward to doing this summer?
2. If you are a follower please let me know in your comment and get an extra entry.
3. If you aren't a follower, become one and let me know in the comments and you get an extra entry.
4. Blog about this giveaway and leave a link to it in the comments and you get another entry!
4 ways to win!!! You have until Sunday, April 18 to enter. I will draw a winner that evening.

So I thought I would show you a picture of how my desk is looking these days with all the granny squares I have been receiving. I am hoping to have them mailed out this weekend ladies!!

Oh and I received my happy mail already for this month. I was overwhelmed with all the awesomeness inside!

Thank you so much Dain! The owl is amazing and I immediatly put on the headband. I have already picked out an outfit to wear to work tomorrow so that I can wear it!! She just opened up her shop with lots of new goodies for summer. You can check it out

Well...I am off to finish Glee from last night! This show just makes me smile! Love it!
Happy Wednesday!
