"Follow and Win" Giveaway!

I'm so excited and VERY PROUD to announce my first official giveaway as a blogger! I love to give people gifts and, if I had the funds, I'd give stuff away like there was no tomorrow, ha!

This is one of my very favorite books and happens to reside on my own bookshelf at home. I Like You- Hospitality Under the Influence by Amy Sedaris is a humorous, witty twist on the typical domestic how-to book. She basically pokes fun at all those women out there, (who I admittedly wish I could be more like) who seem like they've always got it together. This book is for the rest of us girls who burn turkeys, overcook the spagetti and always manage to shrink every article of clothing in the dryer.

So, how would you like your very own, brand new copy of I Like You? Here's the scoop:

1. Become a Follower of A Blonde Ambition by 12:00 a.m. (Central Standard Time) on Monday, September 15, 2009. Don't worry, if you're a current Follower, you'll be eligible too!

2. At 8:00 a.m. on Monday, September 15, I'll put all the Followers in a pool and draw one lucky winner. To make this fair, immediate relatives will not be eligible for the drawing (sorry Mom!)

3. I'll announce the winner on the blog the same day and contact the winner by email to get their address and photo (if they would like a photo posted with the announcement on the blog.) Don't worry, the mailing address will be sent by secure email and will remain 100% confidential.

Please let your friends know about the giveaway! I want this first one to be a success!
