CLOSED-100th Post & Giveaway!

This giveaway is now officially closed!!  Winners announced Wednesday-Stay tuned!
((I made some changes recently and turned this from mrsmonicatillery.blogspot.com to www.theatypicalhousewife.com because of this I now have an actual e-mail address for theatypicalhousewife.com  Today I made some changes, the biggest of which was setting up this blog through my new e-mail address.  As a result I lost all the people I was following!  I made a list of everyone I was following, however some people may have gotten missed.  If I was following you, and now I'm not, just let me know so I can re-follow you!))

100 posts!! I can't believe it!  It really seems like just yesterday I wrote my very, very first post!  Since I first started, I've obviously had 100 posts, over 3,000 overall page views, and a total of 112 comments!

For all of my readers, commenters, followers and supporters, I just want to say one thing...

I don't know how other people felt when they had gotten this far in their blogging journey, but for me, I feel mostly thankful.  I am so thankful to have as many followers as I do, I am so thankful to get comments, and readers.  To everyone who reads, follows, and comments on my blog, THANK YOU!!!  I appreciate you all so much!  I have met the most awesome people, and I'm sure I'll meet many more!

Ok, ok, enough rambling, on to the meat and potatoes!

My husband and I debated on what to give away.  I knew I wanted to give a gift card away, as I wanted what I gave away to be used and appreciated.  But what KIND of gift card!  Rob wanted to give away a gas gift card!!  Although I am sure that would be appreciated, I wanted something that you could use to go out to eat with, or maybe get groceries or gas, whatever it is that you needed.  I ALMOST got a Starbucks giftcard, but instead I got...

This is not a picture of the actual gift card!  Found this on google!
A 25 dollar American Express gift card!!

I figured this way you could go on a date with your husband, go to the movies, have Starbucks, or buy gas!!

I felt really conflicted about the rules for signing up to win this gift card.  A lot of people require you to be a follower of their blog.  I was really tempted to add that here as a rule.  However, I'm not doing this to gain readers.  If you read my blog, if you like what I write, then please feel free to follow!  I love gaining readers and new friends!  However, I'm not making that mandatory for this giveaway!

To Enter:

1.  ((Mandatory)) Leave a comment, and tell me what your FAVORITE FOOD is and why!

2.  ((Optional)) For an additional entry to win, follow me and my blog and leave an additional comment letting me know your a new follower!  This is NOT mandatory, but it will get you an additional entry if you want one.

I will be using a random generator to figure out who the winner is.

Winners will be announced Wednesday, July 13th, 2011.

Good luck!

Congratulations on your new site address & 100th post!

My favorite food (well, I have a lot but I'll pick one :) is my mom's broccoli casserole. Yum!! I love it because it's sooo tasty but also because it's turned into a Thanksgiving tradition. It just wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it :) I haven't been home for Turkey Day in 4 years, so I have to make it myself. I always think of my mom when I eat it & remember past holidays!

My favorite food (right now) is anything berry pie. I love making them, sharing them with my husband, and hearing his tell others about how delicious it was. I say that last part because my cooking skills are definitely not anything to brag home about (I may or may not have baked the chicken the first time I made fajitas), but I can bake like it's nobodies business!

I found you thru High-Heeled Housewife and I'm glad that I did! I'm definitely going to follow your blog.

My favorite food is Stoffer's meat lasagna. Sorry, I've never been raised on home-cooked meals, all I know is the frozen stuff, and you know what, I love it!
