Get A Kitchenaid Mixer Like Me Giveaway!

IMG_0208.JPG

Congratulations to Hollho….7@comcast.net for winning ~ and thanks so much to everyone who entered (I wish I could buy each one of you a Kitchenaid!)

Isn’t she lovely?

 

So, I have a confession to make.

 

I have absolutely no self control and bought that Kitchenaid MixerThe one that I didn’t need. 

 

Yup. No. self. con. trol.

 

I stayed up last night dreaming of this thing, and when a PPP’er on Facebook mentioned the even better deal at Bed Bath & Beyond, I was totally suckered in and headed out to buy that beautiful mixer.

 

(Both the Bed Bath & Beyond deal and Amazon deal are INCREDIBLE prices ~ you’ll save more than 50% off the original price on this beauty!)

I have so little control that I couldn’t even wait to have my husband wrap it and give it to me as a Christmas gift. I thought it through, and seeing as I probably have right around sixty five Christmas baking seasons in my future (assuming I live to the ripe age of 104 ~ I have an aunt who’s 101, so it’s clearly possible, I think?) I decided that I needed to go ahead and use it now though so I wouldn’t miss a single opportunity. ;)

 

I have some guilt about this purchase (although honestly, I love it. And my husband was sweet enough to approve.) I already have a Kitchenaid that works just fine other than being a wee bit smaller, and I know there are so so so many people who have so little. (So why on earth do I need a bigger Kitchenaid?)  Splurging for myself on this just seems beyond ridiculous, but goodness I do love it already. (Is that terrible? I struggle so much with when it’s okay to splurge and when to give more!)

So, to ease my guilt just a bit, I decided to share exactly the same Kitchenaid with one of you. (WOOOHOOOOO!)

 

Tomorrow night at 10 PM Eastern Time, I’ll pick one ever-so-lucky PPP reader to get this just so beautiful-wonderful-make-me-so-happy mixer so you can feel just a wee bit like Martha Stewart too. (Or Paula Deen. Whoever you choose.) ;)

PPP Five Year Blogiversary Giveaway Coming Tomorrow

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 2.43.35 PM

First giveaway is live – enter to win HERE!

Goodness gracious, I can hardly believe this but I’ve been typing from this side of the screen and on over to you for exactly five years this month.  WOW!

 

What I completely started on a whim turned into something I never would have imagined, and I can hardly believe I’m still hanging out here with you each day. In case you haven’t figured this out (~ahem~), I’m just a mom. I don’t have any degrees in marketing, advertising, or journalism . . . in fact, I’m in sheer amazement each day that so many folks take time to read what’s here on PPP.  (It’s all I can do just to keep this technologically-challenged brain on top of things most days!)

 

Blogging has changed my life so much these last five years that I can hardly imagine life without it.  It’s given this kind-of-shy-goofy-not-very-confident mom a little presence on the internet, taught me so much about what I’m really passionate about, instilled in me the importance of some serious determination, and been just a wonderful gift (despite the ridiculous number of hours it’s taken to keep it together. Yikes!)

 

I looked back to my very first post back in October of 2009 on “publixpennypincher.blogspot.com” (when I made myself “pretend post” for a few weeks to see if I even enjoyed sharing deals at all.) Here’s what it looked like . . . ;)

 

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 2.49.03 PM

(seriously folks, we’ve come a long way ~ it took me a whopping six months just to learn how to hyperlink!)

 

I feel so incredibly blessed to have this virtual home here with you, and am simply overwhelmed that you take time to read what’s here each day. I love how this has completely changed our family’s ability to give as well as beefed up our children’s college funds, and having you all to chat with each day has helped me through some crazy difficult times.

 

(I know that sounds nuts, but you all are just the nicest cheering section!)

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 3.34.30 PM

To top that all off, last week we reached ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND FACEBOOK FANS (WOW!) So, of course we need a little giveaway to celebrate, don’t you think? ;)

Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 3.37.57 PM

 

Tomorrow, watch for some seriously fun giveaways (hint: think Kitchenaid & Amazon ~ both!) I’ll be starting out early in the day and can’t wait to share, so be watching.

 

Thank you so much for sharing this little spot with me each day – I’m so very thankful for you!

 

And on a very important side note, I do NOT do manage all of this by myself most days. A big thanks to my friends Cheryl, Misty, Susan and Staci who help out with various tasks around here when I need them, and a HUGE thanks to Shannon (who y’all know is a rockstar.) ;)
