The Super Spectacular One Year Anniversary Bloggy Quiz!

(edited after I realized that no one was going to be able to answer all 20 questions and no one has time to go back through 300+ posts to look up the answers.)


It's the one year anniversary of the birth of my blog! I can't believe I've been blogging for a whole year (especially when I didn't even know what a blog was before that!) I wouldn't have found so much joy and fulfillment in this blog if it wasn't for you guys reading and leaving me your awesome comments! Thank you to all my readers!!! And to really thank you guys, I have put together a fun quiz about my blog. Actually, the idea for the quiz and most of the research for it came from my friend, Sandy. Thank you, Sandy! And sorry Sandy, but I had to leave off all the wonderful, nice things you said about me and my blog. I just couldn't bring myself to write it here.

Leave me your answers to the quiz in the comments section of this post. I'll give you all a week to come up with the answers and leave me a comment. Actually, scratch that. I'm going to be camping next weekend, so I'll give you until next Monday (7/7) to enter the contest and I'll choose the winners Monday night. I'll randomly pick the 11 winners (one for each prize) from the entries with the correct answers. If there are no (or not enough) entries with correct answers, then I'll choose the winners randomly from the entries with the most correct answers. I tried to figure out how to let everyone pick which prize they wanted to win, but according to all my friends, I'm nuts for even considering it. They said, "You get what you get and you don't get upset." So, that's how I'm going to do it. The first name I choose will get the first prize, the second name will get the second prize and so on and so forth.

Vanna, tell them what they can win!

Well, Dawn, your readers can win one of these fabulous prizes, generously donated by these businesses...




1. Leslie at Simply Lovely Gifts is donating one personalized cape. Your little super hero will love it! (She's also offering 10% off orders until July 13th. Just use coupon code DAWN.)








2. Patti at Precious Text is donating one gorgeous, handcrafted, heart shaped Mother's pin with scripture from Proverbs 31:28. Jewelry with meaning!








3. Vanessa at My Mommy's Bracelets is donating one handcrafted, single strand Mommy bracelet. And who doesn't love sparkly jewelry?! (She's also offering 10% off orders until July 13th. Just use coupon code DAWN.)








4. Annika at Red Thread Confections is donating one small box of her delicious, gourmet, handcrafted chocolates. Mmmm chocolate!




5. Angie at Good For the Kids is donating one $50 gift card good for anything at her store. Use it on a wide variety of items that nurture, create and engage!





6. Kim at Olive Kids is donating one $50 gift card good for anything at her store. She has everything to decorate your kids' rooms in classic, fun designs!








7. Dana at Couture Moms is donating one Mom*ology shirt. Choose from several funny sayings and express your style!










8. Michelle at 4 The Kids is donating one personalized namesake made especially for you. Michelle's namesakes are unique, one-of-a-kind designs! (And, as always, 50% of the proceeds goes to pediatric cancer.)








9. Rachel at Supper's on the Table, Come Home is donating one cookbook chock full of delicious recipes the whole family will love. This book also includes a weekly shopping list. Rachel sent me a book a long time ago and I just found where I'd misplaced it. There are tons of slow cooker meals and almost all the recipes use whole, natural foods that work with our family's diet, so I'm loving it!



10. & 11. Roxanne from Sassy Chics is donating two $50 gift cards good for anything in her boutique. She's got some of the most darling clothes for your little girl and she keeps Lexi and Brooklyn in style!

OOOOH! FUN! Just the kind of thing that's up my alley...I can remember inconsequential stuff until the cows come home, but I consistently can't remember the four things for which I went into the grocery store (not that you're inconsequential, because I obsessively check your blog every morning and worry about you when there's not a new post--yeah, I need to get out more, and not just to the grocery store!).

If I had the time, I'd look up all the answers, but here's my shot without cheating. I did think you were tricking us by making all the answers "A," but then some were obviously not "A," so here's what I think:
1.c
2.a
3.a
4.a
5.a
6.c
7.c and d
8.a, b, and e
9.f

Thanks for the nostalgia! I can't belive it's been almost a year since your infamous eBay auction that brought most of us to you! Congratulations and here's to many more fun bloggy years to come!

Hey Dawn,
Long time reader...first time commentor!! I am the mother of ONLY 5. ages 3-10. When my "precious" angels decide to cover eachother with permanent marker, trap one of their sibs in the dryer,(severe punishment for this one), climb onto the top of the refrigerator, pile the pillows and blankets in the middle of the living area all the way to the ceiling.....5 minutes before guests are expected! Or my favorite...using my GOOD lipstick on the dog! Instead of losing my cool...I simply grab the camera, snap a few photos....then loose my cool! Thanks for all the laughter...and tears this past year.

7. D
8. D
9. You talked about all but B said sour so not sure if that was what happened when Jackson had chocolate milk in backpack all day I assume it was sour. So if that is the case then none of the above.
