Congrats, and happy snacking!!
(winners - look for an e-mail from me!)
*************


I've been feeling a little twitchy lately. If I had money, and energy, and Wendy wasn't in the early stages of potty training, I'd go shopping. If I was allowed to lift more than 10 lbs, I'd rearrange furniture. Since I can't do any of that, I decided to work on my blog a little bit this morning.

What do you think?

It's from the same design kit I bought when I first changed my design several months ago. It comes from Sweet Shoppe Designs, and is one of their "Blog in a Box" kits by designer Zoe Pearn. If you click on a link, you'll see that you can buy a customizable blog design kit for less than $6. The instructions are easy to follow, and there are several ways to put the pieces together to redo your blog. (I wish I had known they had Christmas designs - I would've been all over that!!)

And now - a GIVEAWAY!

This is big news, y'all. Little Debbie is now making 100 calorie snack packs. I recently received a HUGE box of samples in the mail, and they were delicious!! They're the same treats you grew up with, but resized into a healthier portion. I'm not as concerned with the calories right now as I am with the carbohydrate content, but I was able to fit these yummies into my diet plan. I especially enjoyed the Nutty Bars & PB Stix.

Little Debbie will send THREE of my readers a big box of their own! That's 8 full-sized boxes of Little Debbie treats! Just leave me a comment to enter! You can get extra entries for tweeting about the giveaway - just live me an additional comment with the link to your tweet!

Giveaway ends at 8 a.m. CST Monday.

***
Edited to add: I forgot - this giveaway is only for the continguous 48 US states. Sorry for not posting that sooner. (I apologize, Scribbit!)

I love the new look, and I need some Little Debbies. Right now. We ran out of gas on the way home from the grocery store, and I had zero dollars. Which made my AAA membership useless.

Pity me, and send me some Debbies. :)

Amy said...

I love Little Debbies, but try not to indulge due to the calories, so these would be a "safe" treat.

Thank you, love Little Debbie snacks !

Toystory said...

I like the new look -- and I think you just need a "punch" of darker color here and there to make it perfect!! And little Debbie's wow ~~ I'd love that.

Terry said...

Your daughter's photo made me smile - a nice look to your blog.

nascarandbeans said...

mstaken05 said...

Little Debbie and I are best friends. I see her in the store all the time and have to pass her up. Please put me in the giveaway. I really need 100 calorie snacks.

MCJunkie said...

PLEASE CHECK THESE OUT, THEY HAVE PEANUT BUTTER IN THEM AND ARE BEING RECALLED.

rondadoug said...

I love the picture of your little girl...adorable grin!! And free snacks...love that too!!

Debbie D said...

Little Debbie snacks are one of my weaknesses. I LOVE the idea of 100 calorie packs. Now I just have to try not to eat two at one time!

Kari said...

You have a great blog!! :) I'd love a chance to win these new Little Debbie snacks, thank you!

bettyd said...

You did a great job on the site. I love the nutty buddies and the idea of 100 cal portions.

ababe28 said...

Oh, I would so love to win this giveaway! I love Little Debbie snacks and think it is great that they are making 100 calorie packs!
Here is a little suggestion too...
If your pressed for time, and you need something quick for a party or get-together, buy a bunch of different Little Debbie snacks and open them up and arrange them in a fun way on a nice serving dish and bring it along.
These are especially great around 4th of July when Little Debbie does the snacks in Red, White and Blue.
I did this once, and everyone raved about the beautiful tray of patriotic snacks...
Thanks

Charles Gibson said on the National News tonight that Little Debble snacks with peanuts and/or peanut butter have been recalled by the FDA because of all the salmonella deaths and illnesses.

Be very careful. I would not eat FDA recalled food.

katy said...

I love Little Debbie snacks! This would be fantastic!

Elizabeth said...

I'd love to win this! Mmm, Little Debbie :)

Linda said...

What a nice giveaway! Thanks for the chance.

Kat Bryan said...

I've been thinking of starting a blog. Thanks for the info about that site.

As for Little Debbie, I'm sure they'll remove any recalled treats from their stock.

Snowpuff said...

Ok, I'd like to enter for anything that does not have peanuts or peanut butter in it.

Thanks for the nice giveaway. You are very thoughtful to share these nice treats!
