700 posts?! This calls for a GIVEAWAY!

This is officially my 700th post. 699 posts ago, I had a brand-new blog and no followers. But I had the desire to write -- the desire to be heard, known. 699 posts later, I now have 166 followers. Which is amazing. Some of you have become good bloggy and interwebby friends of mine. Thank you for following my blog, whether you've been here for all 700 posts or are a recent follower. :-)

As a special thank-you to my followers, I am holding a giveaway that will be open only to current followers of this blog. Since this is a special giveaway, I decided to ask a special someone to sponsor it. And that special someone is none other than the lovely Busy Bee Lauren, who actually inspired me to begin blogging in the first place.

Here is the prize Lauren has so generously provided for this giveaway:

This Tigerlily hairclip is a true signature piece that will brighten up any outfit. I'm mad about feathers, so I'm truly jealous of whomever wins this prize! :)

And here are the rules for my giveaway:

1.) Leave a comment telling me one random fact about yourself. Be sure to include your email addy in this comment!
(1st entry -- mandatory!)

2.) Leave another comment if you tweet about this giveaway. Be sure to "mention" me by writing @AnnieCristina inside the tweet (that will ensure I get the tweet).
(2nd entry -- bonus entry!)

3.) Leave yet another entry if you blog about this giveaway. Be sure to provide the link in your comment!
(3rd entry -- bonus entry!)

I will be selecting a winner at random on October 22nd, 5:00 PM. One lucky winner will be winning the Tigerlily hairclip, so don't forget to enter before 5:00 PM (EST) on October 22nd. Good luck! :-)

LOVE this giveaway and the feathers and the rules! I'm totally with Camilla--I cannot even stand to look at mayo and it grosses me out to have it in my fridge UGH--but that's kinda cheating since she already said it, so I'll say: I babysit a few days a week after school, and I always sing the little guys to sleep with Neil Young's Unknown Legend, cause it's one of the few songs I know ALL the words to. :)

I can move my ears! :) When I was a kid, I was talking to a group of friends about "talents" and apparently one kid was like "oh oh I can move my ears!" and I was like "um everyone can!" And well, apparently, not everyone can! lol

And my e-mail addy:
