I’m hijacking the blog by replacing Ash’s original giveaway post to wish her a happy birthday! Having a birthday on a Monday is totally not fair, so we basically took the entire weekend to relax, watch movies, eat cupcakes and do whatever her heart desired. Within reason, of course. They’re weren’t any last minute 13-hour drives to Disney World, however cool that might have been. And how did she want to spend her birthday weekend? Organizing the guest room closet. Yeah, that’s my wife, ladies and gentlemen. She’s a teensy bit crazy, but I love her even more because of it.

Happy birthday, sweetheart. I can’t imagine life without you. You put up with my idiosyncrasies and eccentricities. You keep me organized, even when I want to be messy. You give me new, interesting problems to solve every single day (and I love you for every one of them). You’re the best friend I never thought I would find. Today, I hope to make this birthday you’re best yet.

Now for the giveaway part! Today’s giveaway is from Snickety Snacks, a mother-daughter team who offer up deliciously decorated treats. When they contacted us to see about doing a giveaway, we thought Ash’s birthday would be a perfect time to spread the sugary goodness.

Snickety Snacks //

Snickety Snacks has a great menu of tasty treats but they’re probably best-known for their amazing custom cookie creations. Each cookie is seriously like a work of art! They also made the custom dragon cookies for Clara’s dragon birthday party over at Young House Love. Oh, and you must check out their Concert Cookies. They’ve made custom cookies for bands such as Plain White T’s, Panic at the Disco and Fall Out Boy.

The ladies of Snickety Snacks are giving one lucky reader a $100 gift card! The winner can choose to use it all at one time or divide it up into smaller orders. Their custom sugar cookies can be shipped anywhere (yay!), but if the winner is local to the Northern Virginia area, the whole menu is up for grabs.

Here’s how to enter… Scroll down to the giveaway widget below and log in with your Facebook account. If you’d rather not use your Facebook account, or don’t have one, just enter your email address (registering with a password, etc is not required). As always, your information is kept private! Once you’ve done that, you’ll be shown the entry requirements set by yours truly. Click the “Do it!” button, type the phrase in the blank in the widget, then click “Enter!”. Now that you’ve entered, you’ll see some optional entry options. To gain additional entries and increase your chances of winning the prize, you can do one or all of them. If you already follow Snickety Snacks or 7th House, go ahead and enter your Facebook or Twitter info, and you’ll be automatically given the extra entries. This giveaway is open to those in the US only and as usual, the winner will be chosen using Good luck everyone!
