Wanderlust (Desire To Travel) GIVEAWAY!! Ends 12/1/12


Christmas is quickly approaching! How would my readers like a chance in nabbing a quick $10 Paypal cash prize? Not to worry, I’ve decided to keep this giveaway short, sweet, and straight to the point.

I have teamed up with Simplify to make this giveaway possible. Hence, the bonus entry. Please be sure to check out her blog , and enter her simple giveaway for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Tractor Supply or Petsmart! All it takes to enter her giveaway is answer a simple question via comments.



Have you ever experienced an incredible itch to travel? Maybe you've been pondering a major move to a location you have never visited. Dreaming and fantasizing is healthy for the heart and soul.

Quick fact: Did you know that an "incredible desire to travel" has an actual name? The proper term is called "Wanderlust".

I have always wanted to visit Australia.... s2inamug at aim dot com

I entered you Name our Horse giveaway. I actually entered it yesterday, but when I went back to check, my comment wasn't there.... So I entered again. (Please don't count it against me if you find two entries on that one.) Now I am really starting to doubt the fairness of entering blogs... If entries are just deleted (randomly or deliberately), why am I wasting my time. Username and comment on name our horse.

No worries! Your entry does count. I also sent you an email to make sure you know. Also, there are still some honest blog owners out there :) Plus, the blog you entered is an honest blog as well. I know her very well.

I want to go to Australia and see the animals. I want to go to Steve Erwins zoo to see the crocs and all other animals. He was very inspiring and I think Australia is so beautiful.

I love to travel. As a child, I loved National Geographic magazine and wanted to visit all the exotic places I saw.
I've satisfied part of my wanderlust by visiting many states, Europe, Africa and Central America.

When I was stationed in Germany in the Air Force I 'wandered' every spare minute. Short trips nearby and longer ones to Italy, France and Greece to name a few.
Thanks for the contest.

I entered the "Name Our Rescue Horse" Giveaway at Simplify. My user name is Betty C and this is my comment there
"Of those three names I would choose Charlie. It just feels like the right name for him.
If my kids had a choice it would be George. They named every stray that wandered into our home as George whether it was male or female lol"

I went on a cruise to the Caribbean with my daughter and can't wait to go again. I was totally enthralled with the US Virgin Islands.

Thanks for picking ME! Since today is Colorado Gives I'll be giving to my favorite charity.
