Happy 200th Post to Me--and a GIVEAWAY!

200 Posts...WOW!  I can't believe it.  I never thought I would ever get to that number.  Sure, a 100...maybe, but not 200.  I have been tempted to call it quits a few times over the past 3 years, in between the hubby/kids getting sick, a hurricane that left us powerless for over 2 weeks, and a new baby.  But I recently decided to try to keep my cooking blog going...if not for me, then for my kids later on.  Wouldn't it be cool to publish my blog one day, and give a copy to each of my children when they get married?  Am I thinking too far into the future?  Probably! ;-) honor of my 200th post, I thought, "Hey, I should have a giveaway"!

Up for grabs is this SUPER CUTE Easter Cupcake Kit and a Spring Toile Tea Towel.  Both items are from Sur La Table, one of my very favorite stores.  I nearly bought a set for myself. ;-)

Need a close up?  Little baskets, bunnies, chicks, and eggs...what's not to love?  I can just picture it...24 precious cupcakes on a pretty tray, lined with that blue toile towel...lovely!

To enter, just leave a comment below, and tell me, what are your Easter plans?  Staying home or celebrating elsewhere?  Going potluck or going solo?  Cooking a big meal, or letting Grandma feed you?  Let me know!  

*This giveaway is eligible only for those living in the continental United States.  Comments will be accepted until Friday noon, Texas time (that's Central Standard Time in case you were wondering ;-).  I will be sure to  ship the winner their prize 2-day priority mail to ensure you get it well before Easter. 

Good luck everyone, and HAPPY 200TH POST TO ME!

Happy 200th post! That's exciting! For Easter, I'm going to my parents' house and then to my fiance's parents' house. Luckily they both live relatively close to each other so we're able to divide holidays. I'll be bringing desserts to both houses, so this would be perfect! Very cute :)

Happy milestone! We are traveling for Easter this year because my mom wants to host at my brother's home in Bismarck. Food hasn't been decided, yet, but I'm sure I'll bring something egg (probably deviled eggs) related since we have plenty of those on hand.

I've seen these cupcake sets before in Thanksgiving/Fall themes. It was in CA, though, so nowhere near where I shop regularly.

Hi, Kimberly! Wow, 200 posts. I love your idea to print it out for your children.
We'll be celebrating Easter here with my inlaws...we're up to 12 children now between all of the cousins, so the Easter bunny is going to have to work hard. Being here in New Mexico, my in laws like to make green chili stew and posole for all fancy occasions, but only my brother in law and I feel like that is not really celebrating. Between the two of us, we'll probably just make a ham. I'm sure you'll be cooking something much yummier! Love, Jennifer
