life and times' first giveaway!

I've given in.

I'm doing it.

I'm jumping the gun!

...And announcing my first giveaway!!!

I've been so blessed by so many new friends that I want to bless you guys back with a giveaway. This one is going to be small, but I think you will enjoy it.

The first item is this compact ESV study Bible. I have one of these, and it stays in my purse almost always! I love how small it is (it is about 3.5x6 inches), yet how easy it is to read. It is my favorite translation of the Bible-- English Standard Version-- and my two most favorite qualitites about this little Bible is that (1) it's God's Word and (2) IT'S PINK!!! October Breast Cancer Awareness anyone? (Now, if you happen to be a guy that wins this little giveaway, I can get it in a manly pattern and color, so now worries!!)


The second item is a gift card to Starbucks. It's fall now, and that means that soon it will be Christmastime. And around Christmastime do you know what Starbucks has? Peppermint Mochas. Oh. My. Gracious. They are divine! So, here is a little $5 gift to keep you warm.


You can have up to 5 chances to win. Leave a separate comment for each thing you do.
1. Comment on this post.
2. Become a follower of my blog and leave a comment telling me you did (or are already).
3. Blog about this giveaway and leave a comment giving me the link to your post.
4. Tweet this giveaway-- include @WhitAlexander in the Tweet.
5. Put my button on your blog and leave me a comment telling me you did.

The giveaway will end Sunday night, Oct. 11 at 11:00 p.m. EST. I will use Random.org to generate the winner, and then announce the winner Monday morning on the blog and via Twitter. Have fun!

Now...get to commenting!!!
