My first GIVEAWAY...CSN Stores!

So with all of this rainy weather, I decided that it was time for some baking and cooking. With all of the heat this summer, I was kind of on hiatus for a little while. It was almost welcoming to have a few days to get back in the kitchen. Tonight I made some meatballs, yesterday a batch of granola, and hopefully tomorrow I'll get a lasagna and some bread going. And what better time for me to hear from CSN Stores asking me to host a giveaway than now, since I've spent most of the past few days in the kitchen! In case you aren't familiar with them, CSN Stores is a website of all kinds of different kitchenware, housewares, kids stuff, and much more! I have become familiar with their site from other bloggers hosting giveaways. One of the things that I have had my eye on with all of the other blog giveaways are these Corelle bowls:

Nesting bowls with lids...now this is something I would love to have! And with such a trusted, well-known brand as Corelle, well you can't go wrong!

Well, enough of what I want, let's get to the point of this post...it's giveaway time!

  1. I just checked out CSN Stores and I loved the patio furniture! They had the perfect bistro set for the new patio that I just built. I can see myself sitting with a few cocktails on a crisp fall evening in my new swivel bistro chair!
