Hey Shorty It's My Birthday: Giveaway!!

I'm probably out sipping a margarita and laughing the night away right now in preparation for the arrival of my BFF today at 5:30pm.  Yee hooooo!!  Okay actually that's what I would have been doing if I hadn't been swamped with work until yesterday causing Cleaning Frenzy 2010 to rear its ugly head over the past 24 hours.  The Chef and I just returned from having a sayonara toast to this past year of my life, and we are looking forward to a fun and relaxing birthday weekend.  Yessssssss!

It wouldn't be right to have a birthday and not share the presents *just like a kid's party where they give out gift bags* so when the kind people at CSN offered up a giveaway to you I graciously accepted.  Instead of giving away a Dutch Oven or something I opted to put a $40 Gift Certificate up for grabs - it is valid at any of their online stores where you can stock up on shoes, furniture, or housewares.  Personally I enter these CSN giveaways like MAD.  I've already won one and am hoping to keep it up....I have my eye on a $700+ Fondue set that calls to me in the night.  I'm thinking it must make some out of this world fondueness for $700!! 

And now the specifics:

THE DETAILS
*This giveaway is open to all U.S. and Canadian readers - however there may be international shipping charges in the case of Canadian addresses (CSN only ships to the US and Canada - I'm sorry overseas readers!!  There will be something including you in the future).  The entry period will run through 11:59pm PST Wednesday, September 1, 2010 and the winners will be announced on Thursday, September 2, 2010.  The winner will be selected via random drawing.

HOW TO ENTER
*For one entry you must be a follower of this free bird via Google Reader, AND leave an additional comment on this post stating that you have done so.  Be sure you either leave an email address or have a link to your email on your blog so that I can contact you if you win.

*For an additional entry  blog or tweet about this giveaway and leave a separate comment with the link back stating you have done so.

And with that...I'm off!  I probably won't have a post for Friday, but will be back on Monday.  In the meantime you can follow me on Twitter for some of the latest!  Have a great weekend everyone - and Good Luck with the giveaway!!
