A THANK YOU & A GIVEAWAY!

Wow! I mean, WOW! I am still a little in shock about this. I reached 100 followers yesterday on my blog (I might have sent my husband a screen shot of it)! I know for some of you bigger bloggers, this is not that exciting...but for me, it IS!

I am still shocked that ANYone wants to read about what I have to say! :) You write all of these posts that you put a lot of time/thought into, a lot of yourself into, and you just hope one or two people enjoy what you have to say. I can't believe 100 of you want to follow along with me! I am so incredibly grateful to all of you who have commented, given me support, or just browsed my little blog. You make me feel all tingly inside! Ha. You like me, you really like me (name that movie)!

So, as a small, but VERY IMPORTANT THANK YOU, I am doing my first ever GIVEAWAY! I asked my super cute friend & sponsor Erika if she would be so kind as to help me out. She obliged happily, and is giving away.....

First, a little intro from Miss Erika:


Hello Life of the Wife readers! Thank you so much for letting me come over today. My name is Erika (that’s Erika with a K) and I am beyond thrilled to be a sponsor to the amazing Miss Jenna! I’ve been following Jenna’s super cute blog for a few months now and I’m honored to have been asked to share a little about myself with you LOFTW readers.  So here it goes…
I'm Erika, 
And I blog over at Thrifty and Fabulous http://thriftyandfab.blogspot.com/

I also have an Etsy shop that goes by the very same name.

I’m married to an incredible man who serves in the US Army and I’m a mother to 2 adorable kiddos.  We currently live in beautiful Colorado, which is where we consider home, but a move may be in our near future.  Such is the life of a military family. It’s fun, exciting, and it definitely keeps us on our toes! 

I love DIYing, hiking, crafting, making jewelry, and spending time with my family and friends. I have a weakness for leggings and boots…oh, and coffee too!  I love chatting it up and meeting new people so if you’d like to stop by here’s where you can find me:

Thank you again Jenna for this amazing opportunity and thank you so much LOFTW readers for taking the time out to learn a little bit about me!
