Summers not over….PIGGY POLISH giveaway!!!

I keep hearing these horrible whisperings of kids going back to school, and of Summer being over.  Who are you people?!  Summers not over….at least not here in Michigan.   Let me inform you that we still have until September 6 until Summer is over.  Just to prove that Summer is still happening I’m doing a SUMMER GIVEAWAY!!!  What says Summer more than letting your piggy toes out for all the world to see…..piggy toes squishing through the sand on the beaches of Lake Michigan…..oh people you have not lived unless your piggies have sieved through the sands of the Great Lakes!

Julie the creator and founder of Piggy Polish, (my favorite nail polish ever!), has graciously given me 12 bottles of Piggy Polish to giveaway!!!!  And because you can’t just have one bottle of Piggy Polish…..not even two will do!  I am giving away 3 bottles of Piggy Polish to four very lucky people.  Your piggies will never be the same again.  Just sayin……..

And if that’s not enough, the FIRST winner that is chosen will not only receive 3 bottles of Piggy Polish they will also receive a very FUN BAG of souvenirs that I have picked up this Summer from my travels around my beloved state of Michigan!  For many reasons I have not been blogging much…well ok at all this summer, but the main reason is that I have been having way too much fun with my family enjoying Meetch-ee-gan!  Did I say,  “Julie, Piggy Polish Mastermind, is from Michigan?”  She is!

So if you agree with me that Summer ain’t over until the first leaf drops from the maple tree, then leave me a comment below.   I have missed you all so blasted much!  I just am giddy to hear what ya’ll been doin.  So here are the rules…there’s lots of them…are you ready?

    YEA Sheila; It’s so good to hear from you again!! I’m glad you’ve had a wonderful summer, had fun travels and enjoyed your family. I’m so excited to follow you on this new adventure. I love the new look! Same ol’ fun Sheila with just a new style.

    I currently don’t have any Piggy Polish, so I had fun looking through the colors on the web site. I think my favorite colors are: All That Glitters, Strong Like Jazz, Coral Reef, and Just a Girl.

    This summer we’ve had a BLAST! We’ve done our fair share of traveling (Ludington, Port Huron, Sarnia Canada, Chicago). We’ve also enjoyed West Michigan and some of the wonderful things and sites here as well. My boys are getting to that easier stage of travel so it’s been great!

    So good hearing from my own personal celebrity again 🙂
    Thanks for the opportunity for the giveaway!

    Jenifer Bement :

    My two favorites are Summer SOLE-stice and Blue-Ty Call.

    My piggies have been to coastal Maine; western NY; central NY; Cleveland, OH; Ludington, MI; Traverse City, MI and countless jaunts to D-town aka The Motor City. We are wrapping summer up with a camping/canoe trip on the 26th and then a Labor Day trip to Pittsburgh, PA.

    Phew! My piggies are tired just thinking about it.

    And as for a., b., c. and d. Done.

    Hi! Welcome back. I have missed your blogging so much.

    My favorite colors are: Shake your blue-ty, coral reef and sand doll. My piggy’s have been at work most of the the summer :(. Next summer we will travel….more anyway.

    I liked piggy polish on FB, followed them on twitter, I can not find the eat2gather fb fan page :(, I did follow you on twitter. So excited for you and your new blogging chapter.

    I had never heard of Piggy Polish before but that is probably because they only sell it at one place in my neck of the woods. I don’t see how you can pick just three colors because they are all so fun! But, since that was the challenge, I would have to go with Latte Da, That’s Wine With Me, and Dancing on Daisies.

    Me and my poor piggies are stuck at work and home for the summer because I am big and pregnant and not allowed to travel so we missed our annual vacation to South Haven, MI. Your mention of the Lake Michigan beaches almost brought tears to my eyes.

    I love your new site. I just found your old one not too long before you started enjoying your summer but have enjoyed every one of the recipes I have cooked. Thanks for sharing your talent with the world.

    I’m so excited to continue following you on your new blog. I had never heard of Piggy Polish until reading about it on your blog. My favorite colors are Peonies from Heaven, That’s Wine with Me and Stillet toes. I love the names she’s chosen. I agree with you summer ain’t over although I think school sports try to put a scrimp in our style. My toes have mostly stayed at home but they did make a trip to Lake Lure, North Carolina and to St. Louis, MO to move our oldest daughter. We get one more vacation to Petoskey, MI soon. Oh and by the way I love the new blog name!!

    Sheila, I like flamingo, Mimosa and sunshine yellow. Summer isn’t over!!! Squeezing every last drop out of it until Tuesday morning when kiddos go to school! Spent my summer in Grand Haven, Lake Michigan and Colorado with your kiddos. I will be sad when it is officially over. Thankfully we get the beautiful colors of fall before Winter rolls in. Love your new look and page!

    I so love all of Piggy Polish’s colors…they do remind me of summer. But if I have to choose one it would have to be “Summer Sunset”. The color say’s it all really. Summer has been a blast with lot’s of time spent @ the beach, cookout with friends, bonfires, and lot’s of books. I have “liked” and followed Piggy Polish, I have “liked” and followed Eat 2gather. And I also shared the giveaway on Facebook and Twitter.

    I am really, REALLY happy that you are back to bloggin’. I have missed my daily laughs, so with that said…get bloggin’ lady!!!

    I love all of the pinks! I’m either a “pink/pinky red” girl or a “french” girl. My toes have been to LOTS of baseball fields this summer, from north (CMU) to south (University of Cincinnati) and a lot of colleges in between! I love me some toe nail polish!!! 🙂

    Carinn :

    Oh! I NEED to have some Tickled Pink toenails now! What a fun color!

    My toes have been running after my busy little girls at: the park, the cottage, visiting the farm, watching friends play softball, around the pool, through a strawberry field, and around the trees in a cherry orchard. They prefer the ‘mad dash’ method of transportation. 😉

    Hey, love your new blog! I haven’t done a whole lot this summer but I have been to my very own beach right in my back yard, went on my son’s boat, had a great 4th of July bash with all our favorite people, spent a few day camping at Holland St. Park, attended Rock the Rapids, went to the Hillsong concert and spent time with my beautiful daughter, praising the Lord that she is alive, and played with the grandkids.
    My favorite color of Piggy Polish is Beach Break. …..or pretty much any of the pink ones!

    I Love Love Love this Polish! Way to many choices to pick just one, but the colors that I like are
    Pimp, Coral Reef, Flamingo, Muse, Beach Break, Frosty, Can you HEEL me Now?, Tickeled Pink, Wedge you say, Smootch…just to name a few! I have been looking at my piggies at the end of the couch all summer and for the next 2 weeks as well, until this little girl gets here. We have been on bed rest since the beginning of June. I have been able to do my toes up until this point though. I will be getting a pedi this week so that I can have pretty toes for the hospital!
