Millie Fillie | 7.29.11

I noticed these popping up in my google reader and I used to do them every week… then somewhere along the line I fell off the face of the earth with them. Here I am folks, back for the millie fillie 😀

1. Facebook or Twitter?
They both have their pros and cons. I always have them both open on my screen too! FB is more for college and high school folks, people from organizations, and women whom I don’t want to lose contact with as the navy takes us our separate ways. Twitter I use more to build relationships with my bloggy loves 😀

2. Hard Tacos or Soft Tacos?
Definitely the crunch of a hard taco… until I moved to Southern California! Nothing beats a street taco- a small, petite taco with a soft-ish handmade shell, from like cornmeal or something? If it’s taco bell though, it’s definitely some mexi-melts 😀

3. Gardening or crafting?
Well, we’re not really allowed to take part in yard maintenance at this house since the landlords hire people, so I have to go with crafting! I can’t wait to get our HHGs and set up all my craft supplies 😀 I’ve been reaming of how it will be set up!

4. Fruit or vegetables?
Oh man, most definitely fruit! Veggies I find need dressing, which adds calories… or butter, lots of butter.

5.  Motorcycle or bicycle?
Definitely bicycle. A friend of mine died on his motorcycle a few years back and it was pretty traumatic for me. Southern California has also made me loathe motorcyclists! They are pure CRAZY on the roads! Hubs and I definitely miss our days in Coronado, riding our beach cruisers everywhere! Now my pink beauty sits in the garage, waiting for our next move, so we’re back to the beach and not the mountains and can ride them 😀

Thanks everyone for participating in it!

These are a few of my favorite things… and soon, one lucky reader will have them! What’s that? You follow from facebook but don’t blog? No worries: you can win! You twitterly tweet with me? You can win! You read and love my blog? You can win! You’re a new follower? YOU CAN WIN!

I’ve made the switch from Blogger to WordPress and am mostly comfortable over here. Sure, I don’t know how to comment on all the old blogs I follow so you can reply to me. Sure, I’m still working out kinks with pictures… and the fact I think they’re automatically sourced when I add from a link (big oops on that one!) Eh, I’m not even sure you can follow me over here! But, you’re here and sticking with me! I appreciate all the love I’ve been getting over here and as a thank you, dear friends, giving away some of my favorite goodies 😀

What is it you’ll be winning? Well, there is a lot of stuff that can fit in one of those boxes! If I were Bob Barker, there would be fancy music playing right now and some hot middle-aged model would be showing you the showcase showdown, instead, you’ll have to imagine the announcer’s voice [oh, and a picture to come Wednesday after I get the licorice at World market!]:

Burt’s Bees new lip balm | Mango Licorice | Strawberry Margarita by O.P.I | Shea butter soap in an adorable box | a small bottle of BLOOMINGDALE’S signature perfume! [haha, remember my Bloomie’s stop!] | Re-usable tumbler 😀 | Pearl Necklace, because every girl needs to feel beautiful! | Nautical Napkins [even if you’re not affiliated with the Navy, they’re great for summer in general!] | A scentsy scent circle! [Donated from the wonderfully amazing Katie! Check her out!] … plus, this weekend was crazy, but Wednesday I’m heading to World Market so there could be a few more goodies 😀 (I’ll keep you updated via facebook and twitter!)

 Now comes the complicated part:

 “Oh,” you’re thinking, “how AWESOME! But Elizabeth, how do I win?”


 Well, are you reading this post? You are? Then go on down and comment telling me you are! If you are not a blogger, just comment using your name and e-mail address! That one comment is one chance to win.

 Oh, but you want more chances to win?

 Do you like The Young Retiree on facebook? Oh, you do? Tell me you do in a new comment 😀

What’s that? You don’t? Well, head on over and “like” me and let me know in a comment!

Either way- another chance to win 😀

Oh- you’re a twitter tweep and follow my deepest tweets? Let me know you are and your handle- BOOM! Another chance!

Those all seem pretty easy, huh? That’s three entries.

I think we’ll kick it up a notch.

TWEET this giveaway [by clicking the T at the bottom of this post] INCLUDING @THEYOUNGRETIREE and come back to let me know- TWICE… that’s right. Tweeting earns you TWO CHANCES! You are eligible to tweet once a day, every day! Please leave two comments per tweet.

What? You want more chances to win? Well, now you’re just being selfish, and nobody likes selfish girls, do they? I’ll give you one more though: BLOG about this giveaway, linking it to my blog, and you can get FOUR entries [please leave four comments].

All entries must be received no later than my bedtime on: Friday, July 29th. It’s a Friday, so I might be up a little later… so we’re looking at about 10:30, 11pm PST.

Winner will be posted via facebook [so, that’s an entry you’re not going to want to miss!]. Winner will then have 24 hours to contact me before we move on to the runner up!
