Birthday Giveaway!

On Saturday I turn 25, folks. It looks like I’m gonna spend it eating lots of food, seeing my main man Steve Carrell at the movie theater, and putting together Baby Holdy’s crib! Fitting. I’ve already gotten some gift cards from family and I’m not even mad that they’re to Baby’s R Us. I can’t wait to go buy more baby stuff! Who even am I? I don’t recognize myself anymore.

This is Danica 20 years ago at my 5th birthday party. Stunna denim style and lovin’ Barbies. #90skid

Over the past couple of months I’ve been contacted about sponsors twice and reviewing two different products. I’ve known for a while my blog is ready to take the next step, but I am very wary of losing my blogging integrity and voice. IF and WHEN I start doing sponsorships, guest posts, etc. I will do it in a way that feels right and feels like Danica. I promise.

But as I start moving in that direction I realize that my stats and followers will be a part of my future. Now they are just a fun thing to check every few weeks or after a big post. I couldn’t tell you how many followers I have off the top of my head, but I know I will eventually need a better picture of how many people are reading my blog and how I can get my blog out there. I need to start measuring and actually trying, I suppose.

Last spring I attended a Blogger Roundtable where Bon and several bloggers gave me useful feedback that a Facebook page for my blog would be helpful. I only post certain posts on my Facebook but a blog-specific Facebook page is a good way to share ALL posts and interact with readers who maybe don’t use Bloglovin’ or other platforms. So here goes! Danakin Skywalker now has a Facebook page! Hopefully this is a good way to share my stuff and reach more people with my snarky words. I’ve been putting it off and thinking it over, and now just seems like the right time. I’m 25, life is good and I’m ready to try something new. 

Hence a giveaway! Why not give you something for my birthday? Because actually it’s YOU who give ME something. At the end of the day I couldn’t ask for a better gift than the kind words and feedback I get from you guys, so if you like my page or share my link I’d just explode with happiness and give you some stuff. You guys are the best and keep me going. Thank you so much!


My friends at Cocoa Bean are offering a gift card to their Provo location, my favorite cupcake spot in the world. I’ll even go with you. Invite me. I can only talk The Beard into it so often.


My good friend Madi is contributing one of her AMAZING art pieces. Isn’t she fantastic? {Check her out on Insta as @madipagewaters because the stuff she does is just…} She made The Beard the most incredible Ron Swanson watercolor for his birthday and I kind of want one on every wall. Here it is in it’s natural environment, with The Beard, some red meat and a grill.


And finally a gift card to my (and everyone else’s) favorite place to shop – Target!

Enter to win using the Rafflecopter below! Some options (like sharing my blog link) can be done every day and the giveaway will close Sunday at midnight. Three winners will be announced on Monday and I can meet up with you or mail you your prizes! Thank you so much for your love and support!

    I have no idea if I copied links right, but I tried! And I actually signed up for Twitter just for more raffles. That’s how excited I am.

What do you think?
