{ a celebratory giveaway }

see that little blue number in the bottom left-hand corner? (you may have to get out a magnifying class). it reads "500 sales." and that kinda blows my mind. i feel so grateful, and as a thank you, i thought i'd give away a little somethin' :: 

there is just one criteria :: you must be a "follower" of my blog.
to enter, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me your favorite memory from this summer thus far.

for additional entries, you may also tweet about the giveaway (please mention @prettiesbymeg), blog about it (please leave a link) or become a fan on facebook. please leave a separate comment for each.

giveaway will be open through next thursday, the 28th. winner will be announced the following day. 


oh, and one other little thing :: 
thanks for being so awesome!!

my favorite summer memory would have to be making Popsicles and then eating them outside in the backyard at night....

I'm following your blog! :)

Congrats again, Megan!I'm so excited about those leaf earrings--I had no idea when I made my order today :) Yay.

My favorite memory so far this summer would have to be sitting around a fire with Chris' family, roasting smores, and listening to Chris play his ukulele. Oh, and the fireflies were also out, celebrating the fourth with us! Looking forward to making some more fave memories when we go camping to Door County with my family next week!

Congratulations! I'm already a follower of your blog (private).

One of my favorite memories this summer is when I felt stress-free from work related issues.

Faith said...

What a big milestone! SO excited for you!

I have a feeling that my best memories of the summer will be made next weekend at my sister's wedding. So far though, our best memory is probably seeing God's provision in providing a good job for Sean.

My favorite memory of the summer was the party my parents put together for me.
People loved on and blessed me so much.
If love were rose petals I was walking under a light pink fluffy cloud all day as it drizzled cream colored rose petals upon my head.

My favorite memory from this summer so far is the time I spent with my family at our family reunion. It was the first time all of us "kids" (6 of us) were together in years. We hung out, BBQ'd & had dance parties for 7 glorious days.

Good work! Cute stuff. Count me in.

My favorite memory? That's a toughy. This has been a really hard summer for us, but the fact that my husband is working from home now (one of two full time jobs) I get to see him more often, so that's my fun moment...I guess the first night he got to be with us.

Melissa said...

Congratulations! :)

My favorite memory so far is my trip to SLC for a convention. I had such a fabulous time!

Yay! Your shop is so great, it's no wonder you hit 500 sales! My favorite summer memory (so far) would have to be our big move from Oregon to Texas. We took a week to get here, and my very favorite moment was driving through West Texas, watching the sun rise and knowing we were almost "home." Xo, Katie
