wildly fun! {giveaway}

hey. do you like my new look? i was bored today and decided it was time for change. that, and a ton of other people have changed their blogs. so i thought i would join on in!!

so. wildly fun. has to do with something fun right? yep. i've decided to host another wildly fun giveaway. with a fun product from wildtree. actually TWO products.

the first is the red bell pepper and garlic blend. this is my absolute FAVORITE!! from wildtree. i mix it with some cream cheese and use it on wheat thins. BUT you can do so much more with it. i've mixed it with some oil and garlic and herb blend, brushed it on my pizza dough...and oh my was it yummy!! so so yummy. :0) you can also mix it in with your cheese quesadilla. or stuff some shells with the mixture of cheese and the blend. i also think that for those of you who like stuffed peppers, this may add some yummy flavor to it.

the second is the flax seed beer bread. you can use beer if you choose, or 12 ounces of your favorite carbonated beverage. we don't drink, so we don't have beer in the house. i usually use sprite. you can eat the bread plain. and it's yummy to do. or add the cream cheese blend from above on it for some zing. the bread is very good. and moist. and this one has flax seed in it, so it's even better for you!! :0) each slice has 100% daily value of omega three!!

i've been so blessed to find this great company to work for and feel so blessed to share the products with you guys!! if you're interested in purchasing products please feel free to check out my site. i would also like to bless any of you all who decide to purchase. anyone purchasing products between today and july 15th will get FIVE DOLLARS off their order!! ((so...go check out my site and email me with your order and i'll figure it all out for you with your shipping and five dollars off...that will be the easiest way to do it. :0) ))

wanna know what you have to do to win?!?

here it goes:: JUST COMMENT ON THIS POST. yep that's it. no site hopping necessary. just comment. and you can comment about anything not even wildtree. i just want you to have the chance to win.

BUT...you can get THREE extra entries if you decide to purchase something!!

the giveaway will end JULY 9th at MIDNIGHT CST.

i hope you all will enter. :0) because as i did for my last winner, i'm bound to throw in some extra samples....:0) ((and as always, i'd love if you spread the giveaway around. wildly...lol))

okay enough about my wildtree stuff.

did you see i got a new name?!? when we first announced our fifth pregnancy i decided i also needed a new blog name. after miscarrying the baby i put it on the back burner, but still felt the need to change the name. i went back in my comments and re-read them all. one that stuck out to me then, still stuck out to me now and it was stephanie's over at life is a miracle of 'popp'ing out one letter at a time. it's a play on our last name. and i just thought it was so cute. ((but admit it: you've read it as POOPing...i know you have...well maybe not...but even I did)) i've been blessed to meet stephanie in real life as well. and instead of getting royalties every time someone clicks over on my blog i've just mentioned you a bagillion times. :0) and linked to you four times. ANNNNNNNNNNND because i know you love the butter oil SO much...you have one coming. :0)

i can't believe it's been over a month since we said good bye to our baby. somedays it feels like yesterday, and other days it seems like so long ago. either way...i still miss that baby. a lot. god sees me through it, and i know he's holding on tight to my precious baby til i get there. we're still going to 'try' for another baby. after all it is the fourth of july this weekend. ;0) fireworks. oh nevermind. lol.

i'm tired. and have to wake shaun up so he can go sleep in bed for a few hours. keep him in your prayers...he's had to work early all week (at five AM) and put it a minimum of 12 hours each day...and tomorrow he has to go in at THREE THIRTY AM!! that's way too early and like in five hours from now!!! i'm so blessed to have such a hard working husband.

so nighty night!!

33 loving words from you.:

You had me smiling big when you mentioned the possibility of some sparks flyin' this weekend! I can't believe it's only been a month since we met. It feels like it's been much longer than that! Love ya and let me know what you think about our idea.

LOVE the new look and new name! Very witty!! Your giveaway sounds yummy -- especially the red pepper & garlic. Mixed with cream cheese on crackers -- YUM!! I may have to scrap my Starbucks for the week and place an order! LOL!

Please know too, that you and your baby are still in my prayers! Hope hubby is able to get some rest! Mine has been flying nights, so he's been doing 18-hour days too. I don't know how they do it!

Have a GREAT weekend!

I'd love to try your new mixes. Your new layout is perfect. It didn't even click in my head that they are in ABC order. How slow am I. :)

~*Michelle*~ said...

Love it love it love it!

I do believe....and you know.....that we are going to be celebrating life (in all forms) together for a long time together.
*wink

I am speaking to my mountain, remember?

You, my friend....make me smile. :)

Kelli @ RTSM said...

I love the new look...makes me want to change mine up too! You make it sound so easy though...my first attempt took me DAYS! I have tooked at your wildtree stuff a few times, but haven't order yet. I will have to go back and look again and order something this time!

Jessi Dawn said...

Hey you,

I do like the new look. :)

We haven't hammered out the details of our trip from WY to IL... is it too late to let you know? I don't know if it will work out, anyway. And, I don't want you to have to drive two hours just to meet up with me for a few hours... I don't know... What do you think?

Blessings,
Jess

Kelli said...

those were both my favorites to! i wanna win!

Anna Gray said...

I LOVE the new look of your blog! I have never in my life heard of wildtree. Just the name of it sounds pretty tasty though. I take it you're one of the 'all natural' mom's? My BFF's mom does everything all natural...literally. Do you shop at 'Whole Foods'? Well....happy blogging!!! :0) (You have gotten me in the habbit of doing that face with the zero for the nose)
:0)

Emmalie and Aidan's Mom said...

Lots of blog changes out there, if only I were so computer savvy! I like the new look!
So sorry for your loss, I've been there as well. It's a club you never want any new members to join.
I'll definitely check out your site.

E @ Scottsville said...

I didn't see "Pooping" I saw "Popping" and I got it immediately! How cute is that!

So....now my question. Your next one will need to be with an "E" to keep with the flow, right? So may I suggest ERICA or ERIC? ha ha ha

Love your new blog look!

-stephanie- said...

How exciting! I was in a contest and won and didn't even know it. Thanks Amanda. I'm more than thrilled with the prize. Ya-hoo! I love that stuff. And now with this comment, I may win more stuff. Cool.

Verna said...

Anna said...

The red bell pepper and garlic blend sounds really yummy!
I really like the new blog design!

Dazzled by Diapers said...

Your new blog looks beautiful. Maybe you should start a blog making business!

Jennifer W. said...

I've been away a while, and when I saw the title on my list of blogs, I didn't know who it was-but it's super cute! I'm trying to catch up on my reading and I will do a post as soon as I can!

Sign me up for the Giveaway :o)

I can't wait until you "poop" out your letter "E"!! ((giggles))

mittelmommy said...

like the new name..super cute and creative(on stephanie's part)! you could do... "poppin'" out...one letter at a time!" as well. makes the 'poppin' stand out more. just an idea, don't have to use it though. =) either way, i like it and it's a good one for you that you won't have to change when more kiddies come along!

RaisingOlives said...

I've never heard of Wild Tree before, so it would be fun to try out some of their products.

Thanks!

Blessings,
Kimberly
