Works-For-Me-Wednesday: Blogaversary Prize Preview

You know what works for me? A Blogaversary!! It's officially on Thursday and festivities start then. It is really exciting to have been blogging for an entire year! You know what else works for me? Giving away prizes - love it! And what works for me even more? That some sweet people donated some of these prizes - Woo Hoo! (what a difference a year of blogging makes)

Look at the cute button that Sarah at Real Life made for me! Save the image to your computer, put it on your blog (or facebook), come back and tell me, and get an early extra entry in the giveaways!

I wanted to tell you about all the prizes so you can start drooling now - LOL! 7 of the 8 prizes will be given away Thursday 4/9 thru Monday 4/13 (my b-day!) to random commenters and the 8th prize will have entry instructions ONLY given on Twitter! Sign up there now and start following me @stop4chocolate.

OK - without further adieu - the prizes! Read carefully as there are a couple of discounts for you too.

Prize #6: Starbucks Caffe Mocha Truffles from me *Won by Jen T!
Well, you know I had to give some chocolate! I've heard from one or two sources that these are good! You can feel free to share them with me...
Prize #7: Homemade Biscotti from me *Won by Mary Snyder!
I will make your choice of Double Chocolate Walnut Biscotti or Dried Cranberry Biscotti. And I'll even throw in a little cookbook and a mug! Well, I won't literally throw them. I'll package them up real careful for ya! :)
Prize #8: Harry & David Mondo Mint Creme Maltballs from me - *ding, ding, ding* - this is the prize that you'll have to get on twitter for - worth it I say! *Won by @WayMoreHomemade!
Yum! The Harry & David lady said, "Think Girl Scout thin mint cookies in a maltball." And she oh so cleverly gave me a sample. She was right and 2 boxes later (plus other items), we walked away. The only reason I am willing to give them up? 'Cause I already had my own box (I did manage to share a few)! Trust me, these are fantastic. You can find them at a Harry & David store or online.
Whew, that's a lot of good stuff! Better come back tomorrow! In the meantime, spread the word!
