measuring spoons.

Hello my dears!

I’ll be honest — I am really nervous to host my first-ever giveaway. It makes me feel all professional or something, which we all know is not the theme of my adventures here.

But let’s back up. I’m going to tell you a story.

My 24th birthday is in a week and a half. People tell me the transition between 23 and 24 is huge — I don’t believe it. I have a hunch that the moment I turn 24, not much will change. Maybe I’ll have a little more old woman crankiness. Maybe I’ll find a gray hair, or discover another wrinkle on my incessantly furrowed forehead (my default face looks angry, I’m told — trying to work on that one). Whatever might happen to me over the course of the next year, one thing is for sure: I will still love baking, this blog and all of you. Fact.

So, instead of showering myself with gifts to celebrate what I’m considering just another birthday, I’ve decided that I’m going to give YOU a present. Coincidentally, my birthday falls on Mother’s Day this year, so you can call it a Mother’s Day present, if you wish. Either way, it’s for you, because I love you and gifts are fun. Especially when they’re these cute little measuring spoons from Anthropologie (aka THE BEST STORE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD).

anthropologie measuring spoons = love.

ducks in a row.

So here’s the giveaway rundown. To enter, leave a comment below answering the following question: What is your favorite birthday memory OR What do you love most about your mother? (answering both questions in separate comments still counts as one entry — sorry)

Extra entries:
1. Tweet about the giveaway and attach this link: Tell me in a separate comment that you did so.
2. Share the link above about the giveaway on your Facebook wall and tell me in a separate comment that you did so (while you’re there, become a fan of Girl Versus Dough’s Facebook page!).

And that’s it! Contest ends on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. CST. Winner will be announced Monday, May 2.

Happy giveaway!

Update: Patti J is our winner! Thanks for playing, everyone.
