"A Thank You" Giveaway!

Happy October ladies! 
And with October comes my birthday too!

 In celebration of my birthday month and reaching 400 followers...
and  i know only about 5% of you actually read and comment on a regular basis...
i want to say a big THANK YOU through a giveaway!

I hope you participate because i REALLY do appreciate 
all your thoughtful comments on a daily basis.  
When i want to be serious and or silly, you hang in there with me.  
And for this i am grateful.  
And in keeping with Oprah's theme of giving back on your birthday...
because God has blessed me so much & continues to...
i want to give away some of my favourite things to celebrate.

I really wanted to give-away an ipad (even though i have yet to get one) 
but Mr. Pancakes thought that would be too much 
and i would've probably rigged the giveaway just so i WIN!

Without further adieu, 
here are the goodies that celebrates Teams Pancakes 
(really Mrs. Pancakes) 
while they live, love and laugh!

Here are the goodies:

Live
 $15.00 Starbucks Giftcard 
(just because i love starbucks 
and they give you free drinks on your birthday)
you gotta eat-drink right and what better place to do it than at Starbucks.
Enjoy something sweet and pumpkin-y on us!



Love
Five Lanuages of Love (by Dr. Gary Chapman)
When Team Pancakes and i first started dating, we read this book and it was so helpful. 
It was one of the best things we could have done in the beginning. 
The book helped us to know how to show each other LOVE 
through simple actions that spoke to our emotional needs.
And almost four years later, we are married and continue to use our Love Language daily!



Laugh
Coming to America
True Coversation: 
Mr. P says:
what u doing tonite
Mrs. P says:
home...watching movies most likely, urself?
Mr. P says:
i dont know / r u a big dvd person i am
Mrs. P says:
i am...what's ur ffavoirte movie?
Mr. P says:
if u guess right we should get married tonite!
Mrs. P:
lol...give me three small clues
Mr. P:
3 thats too many
Mrs. P says:
fine...one really good one
Mr. P says:
ok...Africa
Mrs. P:
coming to america.........
Mr. P says:
oh s**t that was too easy..

 Seriously, true story.  
Clearly he was surprised...
Mr. Pancakes didn't marry me THAT night 
but he eventually followed through on his promise.  
This movie makes us laugh out loud. I mean we quote it on  a regular basis.

Live laugh & love:
My hubby and I love the outdoors. We have the most fun taking our little man to the park, going for walks and bike rides. We are big movies watchers and I only watch happy/funny movies! I hate depressing or scary movies. We love watching Friends or King of Queens together.

Sunshine Blossoms said...

The 5 love languages book is SUCH a good one. We have it, too! I must live under a rock because I've never heard of Coming to America! I should probably put that on my mental list of movies to watch. :) And you can't beat Starbucks--I LOVE that place. I'd be happy to win a gift card there! :) This is a fun giveaway. And congrats on 400 followers -- that is awesome!

toi said...

What a sweet great gesture for your readers.

Something that make me

live is water and ice, these days I can't get enough of it.

Love getting ready for our new phase in live where we will see our love riflected in anouther human being. Share our love for nature with the little person is something that warms my heart.

Laugh watching funny television programmes and movies, like Coming To America - both hubby and I love watching it and I was thinking about it the other day.

So if I ever win I would go for Coming to America :)!

Thanks for hosting this giveaway.

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

Hello there Mrs. P! I am an avid follower and I would love to go for "Coming to America" because that is one of my FAVORITE EM movies! My other favorite is Trading Places (just watched it the other night, actually). And Rod hasn't seen CTA yet (can you believe it???!!!)! Crazy!

Live: Red Tree Wine and Dubliner Cheese. Couldn't live without them! I could use some right now...but it's only 9am...and I'm at work. ;)
Love: Rod
Laugh: Watching the "Big Bang Theory" with Rod. Sometimes I laugh so hard I cry...It's the nerd in me!
I will find you on Twitter as soon as I finish this comment!

Happy Monday!
