How could anyone resist a post with a title like that? Ok, not real money but a gift certificate.
I have to say I was a bit skeptical when I was contacted about hosting a giveaway or doing a review but given the choice of passing a freebie on to you all or keeping it for myself, I thought I should give it to you. It is better to give than to receive, right?
Anyhow, once I took a look at what was being offered by CSN, I was thankful for the opportunity but I am going to lose a ton of money on this one.
We are in the process of trying to redo our kitchen and one of the biggest problems I am having is the lighting. We have so little light in the kitchen that I am always struggling to see what I am doing at night. There is a ton of designated workspace but without light, I don't use it much. I use the one spot right under the light. I am thinking of going with track lighting so I can highlight the exact areas I want.
What do you think of these lights? They are rustic and current if you ask me.
Not sure if you have ever been over to CSN or one of their 200+ online stores, but there are a ton of things I want to get. I had no idea they carried such a huge selection of Alessi products. Be sure to search for Alessi on the site. They have the cutest designs. My SIL gave me a cream and sugar set when she came back from Europe and I just love it.
Check out some of their stuff I am putting on my wish list:
Do a search on "Birthday" and look at all the great things they have.
So, how do you win money, money, money? A $40 value gift certificate! Easy.

I will use a random number generator to pick the winner. If the post selected did not follow the rules, I will select another number.
Once the winner has been selected, I will send you an email. Please make sure you leave an email address for me. If you are the winner, you will be emailed the gift certificate for $40 to spend how you like.

Good luck and have fun shopping.
Fine Print: In an effort to be honest and upfront here, I am not getting anything in return for offering this giveaway.
If you drink wine from the bottle, minus the brown paper sack, are you a wino?
Here I am watching Real Housewives of NY (yeah, I can admit that) and decided to have a glass of wine. I pulled out the bottle and there was about one glass left. Since I have been cleaning most of the evening, I really did not want to make more dishes for myself so I drank it from the bottle. How tacky am I? Really. Be honest.
So, Ellie and I are in the grocery store. She is sitting in the back of the cart reading her book while I push her along filling the cart. We go around the corner and I hear this loud, kind of a honking sound but think nothing of it until Ellie says in her outside voice (naturally) "I tooooooted."
I very casually say "Oh. And what do we say when we toot?"
She says "Excuuuuuse me!"
Acting if nothing happened, I keep pushing the cart and walking away with several giggles coming from behind us.
