Merry Monday, My Giveaway!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I did,,very relaxing PLUS I got a good part of our Christmas Shopping done and baldyman wrapped it all. Its nice to see gifts under the tree finally. We got about 3 inches of snow and as of later today we are under a pretty big Winter Storm Watch. Where I live--we are expecting anywhere from 6-15 inches of snow. I would say---we wont be going anywhere as of later today....and I'm thinking my work will shut down--so hopefully I will have a day off tomorrow!

This is a photo of my giveaway! It includes some chocolate from a company here in Milwaukee that makes the best candies. Quality Candy--their chocolate is very expensive-I beleive they order their chocolate from Africa and its a very good candy. I have a caramel in it, toffeees, chocolate creme and something else I forgot...(hey I'm 50). As for the meat sticks, our local butcher makes them and they are a huge hit around here. If your going to buy meatsticks--DONT go to the local grocers--NO--you gotta get them made by a butcher! These are honey flavored ham sticks...ummm..you do NOT know how bad I wanted to rip open the package and have 1. Whoever wins this--if you notice the package is taped, dont worry it was only me! I also have a believe ornament..because I now all of us believe in something and of course the cocktail napkins which have a great saying on them...i'm sure anyone would enjoy handing these out with a drink to celebrate the upcoming Holiday!

We will pull a name out by 12 noon on Friday and I will ship this out right away!

I also took a picture of the Baldyman in his penquin hat...I will post that either later today or Wednesday...I'm tellin ya--the man should be put away. I'm trying to convince him into putting his Santa shorts on and Christmas shirt to--he says he isnt to fond of being something to laugh at on my blog--OHHH come on, he knows its done in love!

Tomorrow the Thinking Girl topic is going to be Depression. I deal with it--I know others do...I hope you will all come back and share your thoughts on it! Have a great Monday. Let the Snow begin in Wisconsin!

22 Thanks for your comments!:

It is very special to offer local items in your give away. That is a great idea! In my area, that would mean tamales, pecans, homemade sausage and jerky.

Dawnie - there are so many great goodies in your giveaway! *crossing my fingers I win!*
Excited to see your hubby's hat! (My hubby also said he doesn't like being the subject of laughter on my blog. I'm debating about whether to post the pic of him driving my car into a snowy ditch 10 feet from our driveway......)

What nice goodies you've selected for your giveaway. I can hardly wait to see Baldyman's pictures. What fun!!

Nigella is Nigella Lawson. She has lots of cookbooks and lives in the UK. Most of her books are published here so everything is converted to US measurements. She also has a show on the Food Network.

My mouth is watering! I may have to hunt down that chocolate shop and that butcher or just hunt down whomever winds. Maybe I can head the postman off at the pass.
If I cross all of my fingers and toes might I have a better chance? Does Baldyman take bribes? lol

Bridget said...

Dag nab it, I can't wait to win, must have chocolate. Now why did you have to make it sound so luscious?
