It’s been waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long! I’m excited to finally get back to blogging, and when I say excited… (pause here for overly eager animated voice) I mean throwing candy corn in the air excited. π Because I don’t eat candy corn, but I love it. {Weird?} Β Anyway, some of you may have followed my journey from South Carolina to Washington state on Instagram, I sort of turned my IG into a microblog. If you did follow along THANK YOU! If you have not been following along you’ve been missing out!!

That’s okay because I’ve put together a recap of my crazy last few months that will go live next week. (The first installment of *Across The Country with Three Kids, a Dog, and Our Sanity *is kind of a tear jerker*, *bring Kleenex.) I had ZERO intention of taking a **two month** break from blogging. Honestly, I didn’t completely take a full-on break because I did post every Sunday (eh hem Mommy Monday Blog Hop) plus I still was a part of #MotherhoodChat on Twitter. (Shameless plug: this Sunday will discuss bullying with Bowling To End Bullying, come join us!)

So, in honor of getting back to blogging, my favorite season, *and* my birthday (on Wednesday π ) I’m sharing a giveaway! I did the same type of giveaway last year and it was tons of fun. I think people enjoyed it because it took us back to our childhood class parties where we would lean as close as we could to the jar without touching to take a guess. I encourage you to lean up to your computer screens and get to guessing! No likes, follows, hearts, or hula hoops needed just a simple guess will do ya π Leave your guesses below in the comments and if you would like to share that would be great too! I have the answer taped to the bottom of the jar (my team counted and wrote down the number). I will reveal the number & winner on October 2, next Friday. I cannot wait to see your guesses!!

Happy Fall Y’all!!

TAKE A GUESS!

(This giveaway is open to the US and Canada only)
