guess who turned 2 today?

me! well, ok not me, but my blog did! so i’ve been wracking my brain for the last few days trying to think of something fun to do to celebrate these past 2 years of spilling my guts out on you guys. i figure, first of all, a big huge THANK YOU is in order. i so appreciate all the support and fun comments i’ve received here. i enjoy this little outlet (probably more than i should) so much and have fun connecting with other women i never would have otherwise. so how abut 20% off all your purchases at the pleated poppy through sunday night? sound good? good. enter the code BLOG to get your discount.

and i think you all should get to win something too, because that just sounds fun to me. hmm…. what would be a good prize? maybe a set of posy pins? mmmm, thats good, but you deserve more. how about a tea towel? yes, they are very cute, but i still think you’re beter than that. oh, i got it! a ruffled apron! yes, that will be the *perfect* prize. and it will look so cute on you! yes, you can choose which one you want, but thats only because i love you and you’re nice to me.


“so how do i win,” you ask? good question. i think we should do a quiz, a trivia game of sorts. it will be about my blog, my business, and me and my family. how’s that sound? but, yes, i do have a lot of family that reads my blog so, sorry family – you’re out! it just wouldn’t be fair, and besides you could always trade some babysitting for an apron. i won’t say no to that.

all the answers can be found somewhere on my blog or website. you may have to search for a bit. use the categories on the sidebar if you need some help. ok, here we go!

1. how old am i? what happened for my last birthday?
2. what are my kids names?
3. what are their ages?
4. what is my business name?
5. when i was deciding on a business name, what were the other 2 top choices?
6. what is my favorite kind of soda?
7. where do i do most of my sewing?
8. what is the least expensive item in my shop?
9. my anniversary is on the same day as what other special day for our family?
10. what’s my favorite color?
11. how much did my son weigh when he was born?
12. what is the best seller on my site?
13. where do i buy my grosgrain ribbon?
14. what color is my couch?
15. who redesigned my blog and website, and what is her blog called?
16. what is my best friend’s name?
17. what kind of birthday party did my oldest have for her 4th birthday?
18. how many crayons are in a crayon roll?
19. how did you find my blog?
20. what do i do all day?

are you up for the challenge? i’ll try to check the comments as often as i can to let you know how many you have right. the first person to have them all correct wins! and if no one gets them all i’ll put you out of your misery tomorrow with the person that gets the most right.

have fun! i’m off to drink my second favorite soda and eat some chocolate, in celebration of course!

***contest closed**** rebecca b. from so cal is the winner! i’ll give all the right answers tomorrow so you can see how well she matched up. thanks so much for playing! rebecca, email me with your apron choice. fun, fun! but not just for rebecca, you all still can get 20% off at my shop! woohoo!

    Crap, it looks like someone beat me to the punch.

    I finally figured out it was your sister who designed your blog. We live where we are. Is that her?

    Clarification on #5

    Lindsey,

    For question #5, I wasn’t sure if you meant your very final two options, which were: “The Pleated Poppy” or “The Poppy Shop” OR if you meant your two favorites before you finally narrowed it down… Incase that’s what you meant, the were “The Girl on a Red Swing” and “Fresh Picked.”

    Thanks!
