Another Weekend and a Few Great Giveaways!

Do you ever feel like time is going by so quickly that you can't catch your breath? It seems as if I wake up in the morning and before I know it, it's night again and I'm back in bed. I keep thinking Christmas was only a week ago, so how can it be May already? And wasn't it yesterday that my daughter was yelling "April Fool" after putting a fake spider on my shoulder! How can it be May 1st??? Anyway, it's the weekend again and here are a few giveaways I'm entering:

* Simply Stacie is having an Asian heritage month giveaway. I love to read, and the prize includes several books which interest me greatly because I have 2 daughters adopted from China and S. Korea. Stacie is also hosting a Latino Book Month giveaway. I would be happy winning either one. Thanks Stacie!

* carp(e) libris reviews is also giving away an Asian American fiction novel. As I mentioned above, my daughters are Asian so I'm always interested in reading Asian literature. This giveaway is Water Ghosts by Shawna Yang Ryan. I just read the review for this book on Amazon and I can't wait to get my hands on it!

* In honor of her daughter's 7th birthday, Sweet Savings is giving away a $50 GC to Borders! I would rather read than do almost anything else. My mother is the same way, and if I won this I would give it to her for Mother's Day! To enter, go here: Happy Birthday to Sweet Savings' daughter!

* The last 3 giveaways have been book related, so I'll continue with that theme. Ready When You Are, C.B. (I love that name) is hosting a giveaway for a vampire novel. I believe this particular book was made into a movie in Sweden, but I'm not sure. The title of the book is Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist and translated by Ebba Segerberg. It's about vampires, but not the cute, sexy ones that are so popular right now. To read more about this book and to enter the giveaway go here:

* I can't believe I found yet another book related giveaway! I love books and I read whenever I get a few free minutes. Melissa's Bookshelf is giving one very lucky reader a $20 GC to Amazon. If I won this, I think I would use it to buy my daughter the first book in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. She wants to read the entire series this summer. I love when my kids read! Thanks for this giveaway Melissa!

* 3 Kids and Us is giving away a little item I have wanted for over a year - the Keurig Platinum Brewing System!

* Two of a Kind, Working on a Full House is hosting a giveaway for something I would love to own - A steam mop from Reliable. It's the Steamboy T1 Steam Floor Mop and it makes cleaning a snap. I am trying to eliminate as many harmful chemical as possible, so cleaning with steam would be a welcome addition to my cleaning supplies. And did you know this steam floor mop cleans carpet stains!!! Two of a Kind, Working on a Full House is also giving one reader the chance to win a $25 GC to Build-A-Bear.

* I love food and I love those cheese biscuits at Red Lobster. 5 Minutes for Giveaways is giving away a $50 GC to Red Lobster! I wonder how many cheese biscuits $50 will buy?

* Where'd All My Money Go?! is hosting my favorite kind of giveaway - a $100 GC to anywhere the winner chooses. How great is that!! This is in celebration of the blog owners 10,000 blog hits. After you enter, and I know you will, look around this blog. Where'd All My Money Go?! is an avid paper crafter and some of her scrapbook pages are just downright gorgeous!

* The Mom Buzz is hosting a "green" giveaway for a Scott Green Gift Bag. You really should check out the new Scott Naturals products because I'm sure you will find new ways to help your family go green! I know I did.

* I ran across this giveaway when I was searching for something to send my 3 year old niece. I was searching for something personalized and this is what I found - a giveaway for a personalized CD of children's songs. This would be absolutely perfect to send to a young child that you have special feelings for. If I win, I'm going to put it in a decorated envelope and mail it to my favorite 3 year old!
