Ninth Month Blog Giveaway: $25 Anthropologie e-Gift Card: NOW CLOSED

* This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who entered.

Nine months? Wow. I cannot believe it has been nine months. This is where I would make some groan-able face slapping comment about a baby. But let’s pretend that has all ready happened and move along.

Thank you to all of you who stop by in kindness to read my blog. I very much appreciate it. You guys are in my thoughts every day. Thank you.

This month, I wanted to make it easy. And what is easier than my favorite store? Anthropologie.


The winner of this giveaway will win a $25 e-gift card to Anthropologie. As soon as I hear back from the winner, I will email them their gift card so they can get shopping. Easy peasy.


Here are some items I think are nice at Anthropologie for under $25 each.


And I purchased these items for under $25 each in the last two months.

You can get some cute things at Anthropologie for $25 or less. Or you could use the gift card towards a bigger purchase. : )

To enter to win the $25 Anthropologie e-gift card simply leave a comment telling me what you are most looking forward to this month.

I’ll share: I am most looking forward to making cookies with my kids and watching them deliver the goodies to seniors in my area. I am looking forward to seeing my friends at various events. I am looking forward to watching my husband open his presents. I think I did good this year. I am looking forward to cozying up in front of the Christmas tree with a good bottle glass of wine. I am looking forward to my kid’s reactions Christmas morning. And seeing my nephew’s reaction to one of the presents we bought him.

Wait. That was more than one thing, wasn’t it?! ; ). Sorry I just love December!

You can also earn a second entry by following this blog. You can do so any old way on the right hand side of the page. Just make sure to leave a second comment stating you are following.

One of my cousins is hosting our family Christmas party at her farmhouse this year. She’s going to have a giant bonfire with s’mores, and we’re all going to go sledding. Can’t! Wait!

  16. Love this time of year! I’m a newlywed and my husband has been traveling a ton for work. He comes home Friday and I have the house all decorated. I’m so looking forward to doing Christmas activities together. I have 12 days of Christmas activities planned.

  17. I’m looking forward to getting out of London for a bit, and showing my mother the many joys and wonders of San Francisco! I love that place, and I know she’s already planning what she wants to do and making notes in the guide book she’s bought. It was Victor’s idea that we should all go there together, isn’t he sweet?

    Also, I follow you on bloglovin’ – but you know that. πŸ™‚

  18. My husband is in the Air Force and we live far away from family so I’m most looking forward to my parents visit this Christmas. My kids keep asking about them and I am counting down the days for them!

  19. Awe Jenni ~~ you are such a kind and generous soul. Thank you for making me stop and think about what I am looking forward to rather than dwelling on the last two miserable days. I am looking forward to getting on a plane and heading home to hug my mom and dad’s necks in Oregon. I love them so.

  20. I am looking forward to Christmas morning with my 2.5 year old. He is really fun this year and starting to understand what is going on. I am also looking forward to some time off work to spend with my family.

  21. I am looking forward to making a gingerbread house with my 2 sweet girls and also our trip back to the Midwest to see family over Christmas!

  22. What a nice giveaway Jenni!! I look forward to reading your blog every day, lol!! Im really looking forward to seeing my dad in a few days. He’s driving all the way to San Diego from NC to visit me and my family and spend a couple of weeks with us. πŸ™‚

  23. Congrats on your nine month anniversary, Jenni! I look forward to your blog every day, and it always makes me smile. This month, I’m also looking forward to making cookies, fun gatherings with friends, Christmas morning, and time with family and extended family who will be here. Thanks for making me smile every day!

  24. Hi Jenni,

    It’s so sweet of you to do this giveaway! I’m most looking forward to just the general good cheer that this month brings (at least in theory). I love the holiday hustle and bustle, and specialness!

    Thanks again!!

  25. I’m looking forward to all the decorations and the lights on houses; my birthday is Christmas Day and to me, this was all part of the big build up to a VERY joyous day. These days, my son and I get in the car and drive around and talk as we look at everyone’s lights, and it makes for a very happy time for me.

  26. I’m looking forward to seeing all my family members on Xmas! It’s a little crazy having everyone in the same house but I love it. πŸ™‚

  27. I can’t wait for my whole family to be together. My brother served in both Iraq and Afghanistan and now that he is out of the army everything feels almost normal again. It will also be my first Christmas with my husband!

  28. i think of Christmas as a time to forget all our fears and anxieties and enjoying time with the most important thing in life; family and friends. To Cherish them and all our blessings.

  29. I’m looking forward to going away for the weekend with my mom and brother for my brother’s Xmas party courtesy of the company that he works for, and seeing my family for the holidays.

  30. What a wonderful giveaway, Jenni! Congratulations on hitting the nine-month mark! It has been so fun watching your blog grow and evolve throughout this time; it’s really one of my favorites!

    I also look forward to family time with fun activities like making cookies. This is also the first year that both Chris and I will be off work for a few days over Christmas, so I’m really excited about that prospect. He used to work retail and had to be there on both Christmas Eve and at the crack of dawn the day after Christmas Day, so having a few relaxing days together is going to be a new, exciting experience for us! πŸ™‚

  31. Only nine months? I feel like you’ve been a regular reading pleasure for years! I am looking forward to some cozy holiday festivities with the family, particularly luring my boyfriend out in a pair of skates I found him at a thrift shop. No more excuses!

    • I found these weird candy lip things from the people who made the “Rudolph and the Island of Misfit Toys” movie. When you suck on them they make you look like you have an abominable snowman yeti mouth like Bumble. I got one for everyone in my family so I’m looking forward to taking a picture. Neeheehee!

  32. Hi there. I am looking forward to seeing my big sister who I only see once a year, during the holidays. She moved away about 10 yrs ago when she got a job at a university teaching Feminist Theory and the city where I live hasn’t quite felt the same since. Even though I am now 32 and she is 44, she is still my all knowing, super smart, (sometimes bitchy) awesome big sis.

  33. Looking forward to the most this month… My daughter’s 5 year birthday party on NYE… we do something big for the 5th.. so we hired a young lady who plays Cinderella to come over to be a surprise guest… I can’t wait to witness her reaction : )

  34. Thanks Jenni for sponsoring this generous giveaway. Since I live in SoCal, I was pleased that my last business trip of the year was in Munich, Germany. In my spare time, I visited a few of the Winter Markets that you can find scattered throughout the city and enjoyed so many traditional treats — Glueh Wein (spiced wine), roasted chestnuts, Stollen (fruit cake) and the list goes on. Such a festive time of year there. It even snowed — what a treat πŸ™‚

  35. Now I’m looking forward to staying home and catching up on some much needed rest before the new year starts. My favorite tradition in December — making fondue, pairing it with wine, and sharing it with family and friends. Happy Holidays!

  36. I’m looking forward to NO SCHOOL for 2 weeks (I have 4 kids so a break for them = a break for me), Christmas Eve dinner for my extended family hosted by me, and most of all, Christmas morning with my 4 sweet kids & a new puppy…sshhhh, don’t tell! Love your blog and follow on bloglovin’. Thanks for this fun giveaway & have a very merry Christmas!

  37. Thanks for your fabulous blog!! I’m looking forward to a trip to the big apple with my 2 sons (teenager and young adult) and my husband. It’s been so long since we’ve been on a family trip together, it will be great to have bonding time with the boys.

    • I’ve been following you for a couple months now. I really love your boho style and how you integrate free people and anthro pieces together.

  38. I look forward to hosting Christmas for the first time and to watch as my 2 year old daughter realizes that the gifts under the tree that she assumes we are giving away are actually for her!

  39. I’m looking forward to board games, silly photos, reindeer antlers and red noses on cars, sequins being appropriate all the time, Skype sessions with the abroads, fruitcake O yes, neighborhoods lit up with everyone’s various ideas of holiday decor and time off work!

  40. Congratulations, Jenni! I am looking forward to the end of school semester and exams, so I can relax, do some baking and prepare for Christmas and New Year. Happy holidays to you and everyone!

  41. Its so hard to decide what I am looking forward to the most. Hmmm. I am looking forward to having the tree glowing in our living room every night (we just picked it up yesterday). I am looking forward to Christmas Eve dinner with my parents and sisters AND my husband’s parents and brother. Yay! I am looking forward to a FULL TWO WEEK break from school. I am teacher and we never get this much time. (Christmas miracle alert!) And I am looking forward to seeing my family open their gifts… I love this! πŸ™‚

  42. Also I follow your blog via email and I love it πŸ™‚ I loved your responses to comments on your last giveaway too… it actually made me read all the comments and responses πŸ™‚ Happy holidays!

  43. I am most looking forward to spending time with my family. We live over 12 hours away and that togetherness has become a precious time for us.

  44. I’m following you on Facebook! πŸ™‚ I’ve never been to Anthropologie before but a teacher that I’ve worked with loves the place! I would like to wear some really nice clothes like she does. πŸ™‚
