a birthday giveaway...


You're invited:


What: A thank you GIVEAWAY for Simple Details' 2nd Birthday
When: Tuesday AND  Wednesday AND Thursday AND Friday!! 

Two years ago this week I officially became a blogger with my first post on Simple Details.
It was a huge step for me, I knew I could share some ideas, but I was so intimidated by the
 thought of the technology, I had no clue what I was doing, how it worked or even how
 to download photos onto my computer! If you can believe it, I was still taking my media
 card to Costco to have reprints made. So, for two years I read blogs taking it all in before
 finally starting mine at the urging of Mr. Simple & Detail Boy. My advice...just do it! 

I wouldn't have ever dreamed that I'd have enough to chat about for 472 posts, that I'd have
 blogging friends throughout the country that I can text or call to share a great find from
  Craigslist, or that I'd have readers that stop by my little piece of the www every
 day. It's crazy and wonderful, and still blows me away, I'm beyond grateful for all of you
and the joy this adventure brings me! 

The thank you...a $25 gift card of your choice to:
Pottery Barn, World Market, Ikea, Target, TJ Maxx/Homegoods, West Elm or
Anthropologie

One will be given away each day to randomly chosen winner.
Just leave a separate comment answering a fun question each day.

***If you're a friend or reader that has trouble leaving a comment***
please email me at pzundel22@gmail.com to be included in the giveaway

Today's question:  What is your favorite junk food?

I usually have a stash of one of these in my car:
Hot Tamales, Red or Black Licorice, Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips 

Good luck and thank you!
XOXO ~ Pam

Happy birthday to your blog...you share my thoughts exactly, everything you think you cannot do or master, sure enough ends up happening. Wishing you many more years of happy blogging bliss:)

First off, congrats on your 2 year blog anniversary. That is great and hope you can continue blogging. Your blog is one of my all time favorites when it comes to decorating.
Thank you for a chance to win a gift card. Would not mind doing some shopping for Halloween.
My favorite junk food is ice cream. Hot fudge sundaes or a cake from carvel sounds good just about now.

Scrapperdipper said...

Congratulations on your blog birthday. I would have to say my favorite junk food is the vanilla and caramel Magnum ice cream bars. I think I could eat the whole box in one sitting. Thanks for giving your readers a chance to win a "birthday" gift.

Jennifer said...

How exciting for you to reach the 2-year mark! I'm always inspired by others who are doing things they really love to do. :) As for junk food... I have a major sweet tooth and love anything chocolate!

Cathy Wall said...

You are a girl after my own heart! I also keep my secret stash in the car, (that way the kids don't get into it) Sour Patch Kids for my sweet tooth! Congrats on your two years of sharing your creativity and goodness with the rest of us. It has been a delight getting to know you!

Danielle said...

Yay! Happy 2nd Birthday! My fav junk food is: twizzlers or Nona's Homemade Ice Cream (local in my area).

Kim @ Plumberry Pie said...

Happy Birthday, Simple Details! ;) Glad you hit publish two years ago, Pam!! Let's see favorite junk food....hmmm....always love a Twizzlers, sometimes I get a hankering for some cheddar pretzal Combos, Doritos - yum, potato chips w/french onion dip. I think I better stop there. Can you tell i haven't eaten breakfast yet?

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that you took the plunge and started blogging two years ago!! I am SO very glad to have come to know you through blogging, you are one of the sweetest, kindest and most encouraging bloggers out here and I'm so lucky to have your friendship. PLUS the huge bonus that you happen to be awesomely creative and inspire me all the time with your ideas for making a house a stylish and comfortable home. One of these days……a real life visit is in order. I'll bring Hot Tamales, Licorice and Salt & Vinegar chips for you, and ice cream and dark chocolate for me. Oh and wine, that goes without saying :) Happy Blogiversary Mrs. Simple Details!!!!!! xoxo

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Happy Birthday to your blog, Pam! I've lost track of how many years I'll be celebrating in a few months { 5 or 6?}. Chocolate, in general, and Peppermint Patties, in particular, are the junk I seem to go for the most this past year. Last year it was Charleston Chews.

NN Bartley said...

Wow! Two years!! Good for you and great for us-your blog is always inspirational.
Junk food? Jack in the Box tacos (2 regular tacos for 99 cents-got to be the definition of junk food. Cheap AND bad for you!) if I need a "meal". French Burnt peanuts (those land mine looking candy covered peanuts) if I'm driving and need something to pop in my mouth.......

Brandi said...

Happy 2nd Birthday, Pam! I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog over the past couple of years. Your projects are always so inspiring. My favorite junk food is Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream!

Kathy Olson said...

Favorite snack food... well I can honestly say my list reads almost identical to your however lately there has been an addition..dark chocolate! Especially following the Hot Tamales! Something about the mix of the two... weird, I know! :-) I hope your week is going well! I fell off the face of the earth for a bit but am starting to come back... projects & life that I can't blog about or discuss with anyone current. That's okay though!! I needed the break! Once again congratulations!!

Most recently I've enjoyed your determined and very successful attempt at creating the awning over your door....great job!

While I try to eat really well most of the time.....every now and then I do enjoy a small bag of Fritos....maybe once a year! ;-)
On a more regular basis I snack on healthy stuff!
