GIVE-A-WAY-GIVE-A-WAY-GIVE-A-WAY

I have been wanting to do a give-a-way for some time now but I really couldn't decide what I wanted to give! I told Deaner the other night that I wished I was super rich and could give away a My Best Friend, Jr. but I don't think my husband would appreciate me buying a laptop computer for one of my readers! I promise though that if I ever hit the lottery jackpot, I will give-a-way 10 MBF, Jr.'s!!

My next instinct was to give-a-way something that was unique to Germany but to be quite honest, there is no one "German" product that I have found that I cannot live without OR that I couldn't get in the States. SO, I compromised. Here in Germany when one goes grocery shopping (anywhere besides the commissary!) you have to either bring your own grocery bags or pay approximately 50 cents per plastic bag that you use. RIP OFF! I recently discovered Emma's Closet which is a new business which specializes in custom baby and gift item's! I ordered the Essential Tote in Red with a White monogram for days when I want to hit up the Wiesbaden farmers market and need to bring along my own tote bag!I can't wait to get it!! Emory Eison, owner of Emma's Closet, has graciously agreed to let one lucky reader pick a gift from her new inventory of gifts! Whatever gift the reader chooses will be monogrammed in whatever initials the winner chooses and sent to them! There are some seriously cute things on this web page such as........these super cute towel wraps. Personally, this is on of my favorite things on Emory's web page. I loved my towel wrap in college and I'm thinking eventually I will have to get another one. Sometimes wearing a bathrobe just gets too hot, especially in the summer. Think about how cute this would look with a monogram on bottom corner!? Another favorite is.....this waffle weave cosmetic bag! I go through makeup bags quickly because I can't stand them once they get dirty. Maybe I should buy several of these! I also love this medium sized terry cloth cosmetic bag!She also has really cute throw blankets that would look cute with a monogram on the corner!I would love to have ALL these things! If you are the winner Emory will work with you to pick the perfect gift for yourself or someone else! So, here is how it works. I will draw the winner and post it on Wednesday May 13th because this will ROUGHLY be around my 100th post. There are 3 ways to enter.

1. Leave me a comment for 1 entry

2. Leave me a comment and become a blog follower (or let me know if you already are!) for 2 entries.

3. Leave me a comment, become a follower, AND post a link to my giveaway on your blog for 3 entries!

Make sure to tell me if you became a follower/already were one AND if you are going to post a link on your blog so I can check it out. Good luck to everyone!! I am really excited about this!!

SRB are my initials! weird!
Is that the correct way, with the big B being the last name? I don't know anything about monogramming?
