spring rhythm

It’s March 1st already? Really?

Wow, how time flies. And with the world famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, already predicting spring to arrive early this year, the beginning of March signals a glimmer of hope for most of us suffering through this brutal winter. Hey, we even had hail and ice fall down upon us in supposedly-sunny San Diego over the weekend. So we can’t wait for spring to be here.

So let's put some music on, put on our dancing shoes and dance with me (yes I'm in Spring Rhythm) as we welcome Spring! As I make some announcements, let's set the mood right...enjoy the music, like my current favorite tune from the Plain White T's, the catchy Rhythm of Love. Listen and you'll know why I have the Spring Rhythm in my head all the time.


I also wanted to let you know that I created a Facebook page for my blog. I was kind of shy to create one for myself, but I finally conquered my hesitation and have finished the FB page. I am grateful to all those who "liked" the page and I hope we can swap stories and recipes - Facebook style. To celebrate my new page and to welcome spring, my friends at CSN Stores are helping me get you on the same Spring Rhythm as I am enjoying.

Let me introduce to you my giveaway sponsor. Did you know that CSN Stores have 250 specialized online stores? Their tagline says it all: EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR YOUR HOME AND LIFE. I shop (and window shop) with my finger tips, and shhh... I'm giving my husband some hints that it would be great to get these adjustable bar stools for my kitchen. And for those who know him, please point out that the white glide barstools will match our kitchen perfectly... haha!

Now for the giveaway, CSN Stores is giving away a $50 dollar gift certificate. Yes, $50 dollars, and I'm sure it will get you into a fun spring rhythm. Here’s how you can get a chance to win this giveaway:

1. Be a follower of this blog, (all those who "follow" me before needs to click on the follow button again       since my URL has changed)
2. "like" my facebook page
3. Tweet this giveaway announcement and make sure to let me know about it or tweet me
4. Go to the CSN Stores and help me pick modern adjustable bar stools for my kitchen.

You could do all four options too, and leave a comment for each, this way you get more chances to win the giveaway...

This contest will end on Saturday, March 5, 2011 at 11:00 pm (EST). It is open to US entrants only. If you are outside the US but have a local US address, why not, join in the fun. All entries must be given by then. I will announce the winner shortly thereafter.

I would like to thank everyone who participated in this giveaway.  This giveaway has been closed and a winner has already been awarded $50 gift certificate.  Til  the next giveaway folks!
