My Day Has Been Made!

Guess What!?

A couple days ago I won the cutest giveaway in the world from Kim Holden! You had to put down your favorite recipe and she would pick the winner. I chose my cheesy potatoes recipe. Now I could eat cheesy potatoes all day everyday if I could and I make this wonderful dish every Christmas and Thanksgiving so it’s kind of like a tradition and they are so good and extra creamy.

Well Kim picked my recipe and I won! I could have never expected how cute this giveaway was in person though. First I won a signed copy of Kim Holden’s newest book, So Much More, which happens to be on my TBR list for this month (double score). This is so exciting to me! I have a feeling I am going to love this book and I cannot wait to read it, and have this treasure forever ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Wow that’s such an original giveaway.. I’m very happy for you! So much more is on my wishlist so let us know what you think of it soon! I’ve only won books so far. I saw another giveaway for a book with the cover of the book on little packs of tissues. I thought that was very original too, although that definitely can’t top yours!

    1. This was my first giveaway I’ve one that was actually personalized so I was super excited! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ tissues is such a good idea, especially for an emotional book. I will be reading this ASAP and I will let you know how it is, even though I’m sure we will both like it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. That is SO awesome! I would love a Bright Side one, lucky ๐Ÿ˜ƒ yes the recipe is so yummy, super creamy and cheesy perfect for any day but especially for holidays, it’s really easy to double and throw in a crockpot to keep warm ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
