  1. Liked on FB 27 and Counting

  2. Liked Diamond E on FB

  3. Like “Karen” on the Boot Dazles

  4. Will not share

  5. If I started growing chocolate … the federal government would make it an illegal substance. I’d have to dig a cellar, install grow lights, invest in security systems, etc. Sigh!

  6. I’d love to give the boot accessories to some of my students who seldom have something special given to them.

  7. Today would have been my daughter’s birthday. Wish she could have met you since your energy and wackiness are much like hers.

  8. Love to look and read your blogs ! and I guess i would keep the chick fil a for myself and the hubby! and Targets to use towards grandkids of course !!!!

  9. I went to BootDazzles.com – Man, that was snazzy music! I think “Marla” is my fav. 🙂

    I’m still jammin’.

  10. Ok!! I subscribed now, the oldfashioned way – via computer. Did you ever dream computers would be “oldfashioned”?

  11. I would share. Contrary to my…ahem…smart alecky…side comments to teenagers who get on my last nerve, I am actually very kind and giving 😉

  12. I’ll probably share the loot 🙂 Just subscribed to your posts…can’t believe I’m just now doing that since I read every single one of them. Looking forward to getting them in my inbox now. Awesome giveaway!

  13. Thanks for the giveaway and congrats on your blog-iversary 🙂 I would probably give most of the items for gifts but may keep the wine glasses for myself!

  14. love those boot bedazzlers.. i think i need to win some of these,

  15. Subscribed via email.

  16. Liked you on FB.

  17. Keep them!! Probably to buy gifts, though. 🙂

  18. I visited Bootdazzlers.com (appreciate the links) and like Annette best. I would have like Kris best, but they didn’t have one named after me!!

  19. I saw Diamond E on Etsy – do they have a cricut? Nice signs. That takes time and precision. Oops, I haven’t had time to read your blog. I guess I should do that next.

  20. Now following Diamond E on twitter – goodness, this is fun! And time consuming! Worth it if I win. But I suspect someone will enter at the last minute, and with one entry, win it all. Sigh. Such is the story of my life! Haha

  21. I liked the Diamond E on facebook – cool business!

  22. I subscribed to your blog. . . 🙂

  23. I like you – on FB, and everywhere else.

  24. I liked Bootdazzles on FB because I’m procrastinating on a Monday morning. Plus, I want to win something!

  25. Thanks for your twitter address – yes, I do want to start growing chocolate. I feel this is a very sound investment for me!

  26. I’m keeping all of it! Well, I might share those boot feathers. And maybe the wine glasses (although pintrest has an interesting decorating idea using wine glasses). Perhaps I’ll give the Chck-fil-a away. But the target card is all mine!!!

  27. Visited Diamond E on Etsy 🙂

  28. Signed up for email notifications! 🙂

  29. I would probably keep some & share some, although the keepers would be shared with the hubby & kiddos! 🙂

  30. hey Nicole, i had a vivid dream last night that I won these prizes.. lol…

  31. love the blog

  32. I subscribe 🙂

  33. I’d share them with my Mom!!! 🙂 She deserves it!

    Congrats – you inspire me! Thank you for the chance!!
