I have 4 prizes for today. 1) a paperback copy of "A Woman's Place" by Barbara Delinsky, 2) a hard cover book of "The Carpenter's Lady" by Barbara Delinsky, 3) a pack of my favorite pens (see previous post about all the crap that is in my purse!) , 4) a two pack of hand/body lotion from bath & body works.

How do you win these wonderful prizes, you ask?!? it's easy. Each prize has it's own contest, so you must post appropriately for each. What do you post? If you want to win #1- tell me what is your favorite place. #2- who is your favorite author and why? #3- what is your can't live without item? and #4 - give me an idea for an upcoming blog post.

I want to enter all 4, so here goes:

My favorite place would be...in my bed ...relaxing with a good movie, or cuddled up sleeping. Total rest

My fave author is Sandra Brown. Her books are so well written it feels like you are there.

I have lots of 'can't live without' items, but my most treasured right now is my Chi flat iron. I love it and I neeeed it every day :)

A great idea for a blog post would be for you to tell us about a few of your favorite childhood memories. Christmas, birthdays, school functions, etc.

Happy Spring Fling :)
