Au revoir my friends!

Have I ever told you that I took 2 years of French in High School and a whole year in college? Yet I still had to look up how to spell au revoir? I'm shaking my head at myself. Pathetic.

Let's move on though.

I want to bid you all au revoir for a few weeks. A combination of factors will be keeping me away from blogging until the first week of April. All good factors, yet I'll miss you.

SO.

I've been working hard to provide you with a special treat while I am gone.

I have amazing {and I'm talking AMAZING} guest posters lined up through the 5th of April.

I've been thinking about and thinking about the how to thank these phenomenal bloggers who are so willing to help me out, and I think I've devised a good plan.

But, it hinges on your participation.

With your help, they'll be thanked for their efforts with comment love.

For YOU, I have a little incentive.

Upon my return to bloggy land, I'm going to thank YOU for spreading the comment love with a little giveaway or four.

Here's what's up for grabs (there will be four winners):

*$20.00 gift card to Target

*Cache of lightly used Books

*Super duper cute calendar kit valued at $20.00




*Tres Chic bangle bracelets (don't worry, they are WAY cuter in person).



This is how it will work:

For every comment you leave for each guest poster, you'll get an entry. So, for each day there is a guest poster, you can earn ONE entry per day.

It's easy.

This is going to be so much fun!

Oh, I know you are wondering about the guest posters. Admit it. Here's some hints:

Monday's blogger is dating Mr. Haute Cakes, Tuesday's author is now bald and not of my gender, one that hob-nobs with cooking celebrities is next, and then comes one who gives away diamond earrings on Thursday. To finish out the week, we'll be hearing from the blogger that has gotten more than 17,000 hits a day on one of her sites and is a Fishful Thinking bigwig.

The
woman married to the "Bread Man" starts off the week. Next up is a model, actress and mother.....just happens to be married to a retired pro football player too, then comes our very own bloggy "Rachel Ray", Wednesday one of the bloggers ranked in the top 5% of ALL blogs is stopping by. Amazing mother of triplets visits Thursday, my "mother-mentor" is up Friday, the best instructional music blogger around is Saturday, and to finish off the guest bloggers a daddy blogger loved by many.

WORDFUL WEDNESDAY will still run as usual!

Keep clicking that FISH!

Ha ha. I also took two year of French. I can say 'my name is Stephanie'. I also took two years of Spanish. I know all the important words: beer, bathroom, hello.

Have a great bloggy break!

Angie, I love how clever you are in making sure folks support guest bloggers! Super inventive, and ever-so-kind! So glad you're swimming in the Fishful Thinking pool...you're a PERFECT ambassador of positive parenting! :)

(And all the French I remember is "Michele! Anne! Vous travaillez? Uuuh, non. Nous regardons le television. Pouquoi? Les Duponts arrive dans une heure. Sil te plait, Maman. Encore cinque minutes." If I ever need to defend my television watching when visiting France, I guess I'm covered!)

Have a GREAT time away!

It's April 4th and I am returned to you after a long stretch and I see you have been gone. I hope it was a good break for you, I scrolled down and see that you have had some wonderful guests. Blogging for me has taken a turn, I can't read the many blogs that I was reading each week. I'll be following you so hope your week back is a good one!
