Summer Bucket List Printable and 200th Follower Giveaway Info!

Posted By: Leah
Happy Monday Everybody!
I have an awesome Summer Bucket List Printable for you today, as well as info on my 200th Follower Giveaway... only 3 away!

First off, several of you saw my and BF's summer bucket list I had posted on IG yesterday. Here is a clean copy (without our checks and modifications). Thank you Kristi for creating this and letting me share it! (Left-click image to make it larger and to print.)

... and here's my photo from Instagram
Notice how 'Eat ice cream' has about infinity checks (or 7, same diff)... here's why:
Yup... BF and I hit up Mickie D's AGAIN for their chocolate dipped soft-serve. If you haven't tried it, you're missing out. This one is WAYYY better than Dairy Queen's (thanks to the superior thick chocolate shell). Best $1.59 you will spend this summer, I can tell you that much!

BF and I had another great weekend... Saturday we went out to BF's Aunt and Uncle's Lake House. Look how cute BF, Gav and Lucas (BF's chocolate lab) are in the water! I love all their smiles :D

And then that evening we ate at Dressler's (only the best restaurant ever!) Pretty sure the waiter was flirting with me... and bf. Not sure which one of us he liked more, but it was a genuine admiration. I'm telling you, not only does Dressler's have the BEST food ever, their wait staff makes you feel SO special. Like we were the greatest-people-the-waiter-ever-met-level special... and the waiter looked like Joseph Gordon-Levitt. So clearly he wasn't lacking friends. Actually I think his name was even Joseph! ANYHOW... this dude had his job down and could work a table like no one I've ever seen. He had BF in total bro-mode saying stuff like 'Yeah man, the water's where it's at.' And I said something awkward about the bread being too toasted (what?!) and this waiter still thought I was hilarious and brought me more. (key to my heart = carbs and whipped honey butter, duh! the waiter knew this!!)

AANNNDDD... speaking of photos I've put on Instagram this past weekend. Did you see this one I put up last night by chance? I posted around 11pm EST, so you may have missed it....

It's a sneak peek of the contents of my 200 Follower Giveaway! YES!!! It's a giveaway just for you. Nope, this box isn't necessarily going to go to my 200th follower; it will be up for grabs to any of you, my super sweet followers' 1 or 200 or beyond! The rafflecopter post will go up as soon as I hit 200 followers. I am at 197 followers right now, so I'm assuming it will happen this week. Yippee!

Why am I doing this? It's as a THANK YOU to all of you awesome girls (and probably 1 or 2 guys) who follow my blog, support me, and bring a smile to my face on the reg. This is not a sponsored giveaway, it's just me gathering a few of my favorites for you. True story!  I did a quick calculation and this box's value is right at $50. YUP! Huge thanks to my mom for hooking me up with 90% of the skin care/beauty products for this giveaway :D

So what all is in the box? Well it's a surprise! But as a little teaser, here's a photo of the box from the top. There are several layers underneath. I won't tell you too much (ok I probably already am... I can't keep secrets!) but just know these are my favorite things. Just pretend I'm Oprah (not as rich) and I'm giving you, one of my faithful and lucky readers, all of this awesomeness. 

Want the giveaway to be open RIGHT NOW? Well hi? do what you gotta do! Post on your site's FB page, tweet, post on your blog, whatever you want to do. But don't feel obligated, you'll have plenty of options to  to gain several entries for the giveaway. I'll be keeping an eye on my follower count and I PROMISE the rafflecopter will go live as soon as I see 200. It's only 3 away.

Thank you all so much for being such great followers. I truly consider you to be friends as well. Thank you for supporting Lovely Life of Leah, and me, LEAH as I try to live my life as happily as I can, and find the Lovely in each day :)
