Because {A Giveaway}

Friday, July 6, 2012

EDIT: Hey y'all! This weekend is crazy, so what I'm going to do is extend the giveaway through midnight on Sunday. Then I'll post the winner in this week's Modest Monday post. You know you want that chocolate! ;)

Because it's raining (and I love rainy weather),

because I'm listening to Ella,

because it's the beginning of the month, so that's cause for a celebration,

because we're smack dab in the middle of LIFE and it's wonderful,

because I reached 150 posts (didn't realize I'd made 100!) on this little blog,

and because you guys make me smile,

I'm having a little giveaway! It's nothing too, too grand, because I don't have spare Kitchen Aid mixers or $50 Amazon gift cards, but it's pretty sweet all the same. ;)

 I'm putting together a little goodie basket with some of the things I love. The winner will receive:


Some of my favorite chocolate


(Look, Ma, I match - green & green!)

Coffeeeeeeee (I'm loving using these for iced coffee; I stretch out one little pack to last 3-4 cups)



This bright, cheery, perfect-for-summer-and-Modest-Monday skirt (size S)
(I went through my closet recently and there are a few pieces that are very cute, but I simply don't wear, so I thought I'd pass them on to another girl!)


A lovely purple and white dress: wear it to church, a wedding, or just to twirl in (size S)



and some homemade cookies. Your pick for flavor: chocolate chip, white chocolate cherry, s'mores, pb and raisin, or chocolate chip hazelnut banana. (Mmmm, I may make all five for myself! ;)

 How to enter:
 Share the link to My Spare Oom on Facebook or Twitter, and then leave a comment to let me know you did so. 


Don't have either? Just leave a comment and let me know what you enjoy most about My Spare Oom. :) Deadline is midnight on Sunday I'll  announce the winner on Monday.

(U.S. residents only please)

  2. Well, those reasons sound good enough for me! Fun giveaway!
    I shared your link on Facebook :)
    And to add just because, what I love most about your blog is how personal it is...very cozy rather than a jumbo popular blog. I love hearing about the little things in your life!

    Just had to enter this!
    I found your blog about 2 weeks ago, via another blog I follow. I love your Modest Monday posts- they are so encouraging for this Catholic young lady!
    Your passion for Lewis and Tolkien also are great. I have developed a love for Lewis as well (my favorite has to be Till We Have Faces...) but I haven't really acquainted myself with Tolkien. On my to-do list!
    Thanks so much for your blog. It's really inspiring to see a Catholic young woman on fire for her Faith and willing to share that flame with others. Thank you for responding to the Holy Father's call for new evangelization in such a tangible way! And, thanks for the giveaway...very fun. =)
    (Sorry for that being so long. ;)

    1. Cady, hi! I'm so glad you entered and left a comment. Very nice to "meet" you. :) It's always great to meet another Lewis lover. I've yet to read TWHF, but I love the Narnia books and his Space Trilogy. As for Tolkien -DO IT!! I love his writing so much! It's so breathtakingly beautiful.
      Thank you so much for your sweet words...it really means a lot to hear that you're enjoying the MM posts and my little posts can be of encouragement!

  4. Just found you via your Allume post on Twitter. Sorry you won't be able to make it this year. I'm looking forward to reading more of your blog. Congratulations on 150 posts! I do think I've even hit 50 yet. I,too love my Zumba, but more purple than pink. :)

      Ps, awesome to hear you're a fellow Zumba-girl!

    1. Thank you, Deannaaaaaa! I've enjoyed getting to know you through ACYW. I'd love to see your Modest Monday outfits! I've been meaning to do your Feminine Friday, but I usually don't get online on those days as my Friday penance. I should still snap a pic and send it to you - love that you're doing it! Keep it up!

  8. Hi Grace,

    I also only just found your blog a few weeks ago via CYW, and I love reading it, especially the Modest Monday posts. (I'm hoping to do one myself sometime soon.) I don't have Facebook or Twitter, but I'm adding your blog to my blogroll!
