Happy 250th!

(Cake from Vanilla Bake Shop)

This officially marks the 250th post on this little blog. It's a milestone that means a lot of things...I might officially have a blogging addiction, we're getting a lot closer to the wedding, and you have the chance to win a fun prize! The nice people over at HarperCollins offered up a great new book for me to give away, "Party Basics for New Nesters" by Maria McBride.

Here is a brief description of the book, "With McBride's signature dose of style and elegance, this book guides newlyweds through their new world of couples entertaining, offering ideas for every occasion, including romantic parties for two, weekend feasts, family celebrations, and holidays. Organized by event, each chapter is beautifully designed and filled with photographs that capture the stylish decor, table settings, and menu options that make these ideas extraordinary."

If you would like a chance to win the book, just leave a comment below! Absolutely anyone is welcome. The winner will be randomly chosen, and you have until 10:00 PM (CST) on Friday, April 18th to enter. Good luck and thanks for reading!
