Big News and a GIVEAWAY!!!!!

I'm back! I'm back! I'm back!
I have just about a billion things tell all of you. I really don't know where to begin! I have tons of stories from the last week, which is weird because my life is never that exciting. Usually in a weeks time I have nothing to report, especially as of late. Not only did I stop writing for my great opportunity at work, but I have secretly been feeling uninspired late...


But, little did I know that this feeling of ickiness was for a reason. I have a strong that belief that life closes a door, God opens a window. And this feeling of a door being slammed in my face that has been looming lately was all a part of a greater plan! God was opening me a great big window! What is this window you ask? I got a big girl job!!!!!!!!!!!


That is right blogospher, I am now officially a grown-up, with a 9 to 5 job! I have been discouraged as of late that this would ever actually happen, but it did! And better yet, it is in La Jolla! Could life get any better?
View from my desk. Yup, the ocean.


Now, enough about me, what I really wanted to talk about was all of you. My heart was filled with joy with the amount of absolute love and support that I received from all of you when I said I was taking a break from blog for a little. You guys made me feel that I am doing this for a reason, and it feels amazing that you actually care what I have to say. 

I couldn't believe how some of you made sure to let me know that you would be here when I cam back. And even better, you guys congratulated me on my opportunity to get paid to write. I know that 49 followers doesn't seem like a lot to blog experts you there...but to me, you guys are more then I ever dreamed! 


So, I made a decision that when I got back I would find some way to thank you. And then it dawned on me, a giveaway!Hopefully the first of many!
Seriously guys, from the bottom of my heart thank you. You have shown me so much love, and what better way to give it right back. So here is what you will be winning.
The necklace, not the flower. :)
That is right, I am sending love straight to you! This necklace is freaking adorable, and I have been eyeing it for some time now. It is fabulous and girly, and what is better then to carry some love right next to your heart? Honestly, I have been wanting it for myself, it is SO Carried from Sex and the City. But, this is the season of giving, and you guys deserve to be pampered for being so good to me.
How to Enter:
Leave a comment telling me at least one thing (person, place, food, clothes etc.) you love and why?

i LOVE chipotle. i've posted about it countless times, and I even tried to stop loving it...but i can't. I went there today. And two days ago. And the day before that. It's where I go when I'm feeling sad because I know the mixture of the cheese and extra hot sauce will make me feel better. When my best friend and I were fighting...I stayed in the parking lot while we were text fighting because just being near chipotle made me happy.

wow...after writing all that i think it's a condition haha

kelcy said...

ahhh Brooke totally stole my love!! I love chipotle & I'll add another one...s'mores!!! :)
chipotle is my favorite food and always makes me feel better, and s'mores are delicous. they remind me of fun times with my brother, fun times on vacation, and watching the marshmellow almost explode when making smores in the microwave.

Congratulations on your job!! That really is awesome news!

And the necklace is so so pretty!
There are a lot of things and persons that I love, but I am always so blown away by the amount of love I have for my nephew. It's amazing how such a little person can steal your heart. The look on his face when he sees me, his laugh, kisses at random times, and when he starts singing out of the blue make my heart swell with love. He is amazing.
