My Facebook Page Launch – And a Giveaway!

Hey you guys!  I *finally* got around to launching my new Facebook page for the blog – and I’m celebrating with a fall giveaway! :)

True story: I have had my Facebook Page “reserved” since March 2010.  I totally know that sounds a little crazy. ;)   I just remember thinking that blogging was becoming more and more popular,  and so I figured I’d better snatch the name just in case!  Also: I did the same with Twitter but can’t see myself using that anytime soon.  #aintnobodygottimeforthat

SO.  :) I’d LOVE it if you’d join me over there!  The reason I launched the page is so that when I link up blog posts they can easily be displayed right on the new Facebook page and not on my personal page.  Plus this way I can share Pinterest finds, favorite posts from other bloggers, awesome deals I see on the internet, etc.  I think it will be lots of fun. :)

So let’s move on to what you can win, right?! 

You probably all know by know that fall is my FAVORITE and Thanksgiving is my SUPER FAVORITE, so I decided to put together a little collection of things that would make your holiday a little more fun!  {The fact that stores go right from Halloween to Christmas music makes me want to break out in hives a little.   Thanksgiving is the poor neglected holiday – how did that happen?!}

So, I put together a little collection that will hopefully make your Thanksgiving holiday a little bit brighter:


Fall House Tour and Joseph 078



Fall House Tour and Joseph 084

Salted Caramel Yankee Candle {smells soooo delish} and fun little mini notecards {these would make cute thank-yous for holiday hostess gifts or for your kids’ teachers at school.}


Fall House Tour and Joseph 082

Orange napkins {not gonna lie, I totally got these on clearance so there is a sticker on the back! haha} and fun orange ribbon from JoAnn fabrics


Fall House Tour and Joseph 085

Fun little sticky tabs from Target {for marking holiday recipes or gift catalogs!} and a “Give Thanks” banner from Michael’s


Fall House Tour and Joseph 086


This adorable free 5x7 printable that you saw printed out from Johnson Ferry Women’s Ministry in my fall house tour.  I DO NOT own this print – it was provided for free and I am just a grateful recipient! If you win this giveaway and would prefer not to receive this Scripture print, I will certainly do my best to find a non-religious print to substitute for you. :)


So, how do you win?! 

Basically, the more you do, the more chances you have!

First and mandatory requirement is to “Like” my new Facebook page for This Blessed Life.  If you already did that, GREAT!  You still get to enter!

If you share this post or my FB page, you get extra points (see below). 

If you answer some questions for me, you get extra points as well. 


It’s my little way of saying thanks for getting my Facebook page launched!  Giveaway starts today {Thursday} and will end on Sunday the 10th at midnight.  I’ll be back Monday morning to announce the winner!

Good luck and thank you!! :)

  1. Pick me, pick me!! :D hehe (giveaways are so fun!!)
    The facebook page is a terrific idea. I'm looking forward to getting your blog posts in my news feed. I forget to go directly to your blog sometimes, but I love your posts!
    Oh, and to answer your questions... writing from the good ol' midwest - WISCONSIN!

  2. woohoo! looks great and best of luck!

  3. hmmm, I guess I just like that you are such a REAL Mom - sharing the good and the bad. I love the recipes but also seeing pics of your cutie kids and also seeing what good bargains you get. =)

  4. as far as Pinterest, I find that lately I'm pinning more directly from blog pages - like when I read a really good article and I don't want to lose it I'll pin it to reference again later. I don't do as much browsing on pinterest cause I don't have much free time lately!

  5. Hey Jessica! Shoutin' at ya from good ol' Waterford...

  6. Hi Jessica, I call the Deep South in Rome GA home! Angela

  7. Oh man, I love all your posts! The ones I use the most though are the "clean" recipes.

  8. I do a mixture of both on pinterest.

  9. Hi Jessica,

    1. I am from Stockton, CA.

    2. I have been touched by the blogs about Olivia. You have been a great testimony for Him. We lost our 43-year-old son on May 22nd of this year and it continues to be a rough road to travel. I love to see your faith and take joy in your joy.

    3. I only pin photos using the Pin It button from my favorite websites.

    1. Patricia, thank you for sharing that. It encourages me more than you know. I am so, so deeply sorry about the loss of your son. I am praying for you and your loved ones as I type this.
