Intro post for the Blizzard Bloghop! And 5 GIVEAWAYS!! 5 winners!

Welcome everyone to the
HUGE thanks to Ann for hosting the Blizzard Bloghop!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my little world!  My name is Stephanie. Here is a not so recent pic of me!  I'm much ummm...fluffier now...yeah, fluffier....
I am the wife of a Signal soldier in the Army.  He's my whole world, and I would never trade him, or this life for anything!
Gosh, he's sooo handsome!!!  We are the parents of two beautiful, intelligent, wonderful girls!  (But I may be a little biased!)
We are also the parents of some awesome animals, Brody, Bella, and Lexi


I am just an Army wife, with my own lil blog.  I enjoy doing little crafts, cooking, I like to have a very clean house (when possible), I enjoy running, walks on the beach, romantic evenings.....oh...
Okay, seriously, I'm just living life, enjoying my family and friends, and I really enjoy having my own blog.  I talk about personal things, but I also talk about not so personal stuff.  Check out my blog!  But most of all, enjoy your day!!.
NOW FOR SOME GIVEAWAYS!!

BE SURE THAT YOU READ THE HOW TO ENTERS FOR ALL PRODUCTS TO BE ENTERED INTO EACH GIVEAWAY!!
there are five giveaways!

 
Oh, but what is a bloghop without some blog CANDY!!!  I am having my very first giveaway!!
I am giving away a few things, because I love cooking...and I feel that everyone should enjoy it a little bit too... (all purchased by me, and will be mailed by me as well!)  3 items up for grabs!



1:
A kids set of recipe cards, a star, heart, and flower shaped cookie/bread cutters, and some colorful measuring cups, all from The Pampered Chef  (all of these are still in the bags so its kind of hard to tell how awesome they are!)


2 up for grabs is a Bakers Roller, which comes in HANDY when you are doing any baking, and a citrus peeler (also comes in handy for some oranges, and kids can use it!)


3 is my favorite, the ALL THE BEST cookbook, also from Pampered Chef.



*These items were not given to me by The Pampered Chef, I did purchase these of my own accord.  I am not endorsed by, or an employee (anymore) of The Pampered Chef.  I used to be an employee, but I got rid of most of my stock before I left Germany.  These are all brand spankin' new!!*



4. ALSO I HAVE ANOTHER FANTASTIC GIVEAWAY  
YOUR CHOICE OF either....



One of my great friends Cynthia is giving away a warmer from PARTYLITE!!  If you haven't tried partylite you absolutely SHOULD.  Its fantastic!!
