November Anniversaries and a Giveaway

I have quite a few anniversaries in November.

Nov 3rd- This is the day I got engaged. My husband proposed to me in 2001 on the beach in Miami because that is where we met for the first time.

Nov 13th- This is the day I wrote my first blog post in 2008.

Nov 16th- This is the anniversary of the day my husband and I met for the first time in 2000, unless you count that time we met on the beach in Miami in 1985. (But that is a whole other story!)

So, anyway, in honor of my blogiversary (and another secret anniversary that I can't talk about yet! :) I am giving away a signed copy of Hop! Plop! Just leave a comment to be entered. Drawing will be Nov 13th at 11:00 PM. (U.S. residents only)

Happy blogiversary!

Now begins the "what was I doing a year ago today" temptation part of blogging. Avoid that temptation at all costs! It is a deep pit of time-suck.

Corey Schwartz said...

Ha! Thanks for the advice, Karen.

Rebecca said...

Happy Blogiversary, Corey! I already have a copy of Hop! Plop!, but I'm sure I can think of someone to give a copy to if I win. :-)

Lisa and Laura said...

Happy Blogiversary!! I'd love to win this book! I think my kids would love it! Maybe it will tide them over until this other book we're waiting for comes out sometime in 2012.

Oh Karen, I never thought about checking back in on ourselves. Hmm...now I'm tempted. I mean what were we up to this time last year. I think you just created a monster....

I already have a signed copy, so don't enter me into the drawing. I just wanted to say Happy Vesaries!

And I'll see you later...

Amy Tate said...

I want to hear about the beach encounter in 1985! Now that sounds like a story. Congratulations!

Happy anniversaries! I can't recall the date when I met my husband (I do at least know where). Half the time I can't remember how long we've been married. :]

Happy blogiversary! Hop Plop is on my Christmas list too! I love knowing authors--it makes buying books so much more personal. :)

Count me in. :)

Happy engagement anniversary! :)

Kim said...

Happy Blogiversary! I totally want a signed copy.

And, I too am amazed that you remember the date you and your DH met. BSD and I were just trying to figure this out for ourselves b/c something weirdly special just came into our lives from just about that time, but heck if either of us had a clue.

Kim said...

I think I need to start a new drinking game. Take a drink every time Kim types the word "just". *smacks forehead*

Corey Schwartz said...

Ha! i totally overuse "just' too! :) I think I only remember that it was Nov 16th, because I found out later that his birthday is the 15th, so I met him the day after he turned 38!

Jacqui said...

Happy multi-anniversaries!

I'm with Tameka; I want to hear the story about 1985.
