Feeding my blog addiction and great giveaways!

I have been blogging for a few years now.  Over the years it has grown into an addiction.  I have 148 blogs I am subscribed to and I almost always read every.single.post.in.there.  It can get overwhelming because I am just so darn busy now, I don't have time to read blogs like I used to.  But the sad thing is I am always on the lookout for more interesting ones to follow.  It's an addiction I tell ya.

Here are two that I just started following today that happen to have awesome giveaways:

Slumber Designs- Jen was kind enough to leave me a comment to check out her giveaway! She is giving away a $75 EmersonMade gift certificate (their stuff is beautiful!)  Plus she has this great Location Central thing that helped me discover some more great local bloggers!

Jenn's Journey- she is giving away some awesome Bath and Body Works goodies and a Starbucks gift card

And a shout-out to Ashton @ Soulshine for helping me discover that second one on her blog today!

I also got a Blog Award from Stephanie @ The Odd Duck (THANK YOU!!)

1) Thank & Link back to the person who gave you the award

3) Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy

I am breaking the last 2 rules since I have already linked to some of my favorite new blog finds above and really I love so many blogs it is too hard to pick.  Of course my favorite blogs are the ones of my readers so this award is for you!  Feel free to grab it and participate!

(I even made a special folder for my readers and I make sure to read those first.  But if you have never commented on here before or haven't in a while, I may not know about your blog!  So please come out and say hi so I can check out your blog too!)

I know what you mean about it being hard to choose. I had a hard time too! Breaking rules is okay, haha. I just wish I would've thought about it first! =]
