Today opens my Pioneer Woman Holiday cookbook, A Year of Holidays, giveaway.  This is an autographed edition from her recent trip to Northwest Arkansas.  And comes with a side hug from Marlboro Man – seriously!

I love this book because its not just about celebrating “the holidays” its recipes for holidays year round.  Yea, remembering that the thing that usually brings us all together is really good food that’s not that hard to make!

But, in sheer bigpittstop style its not your typical giveaway.  Yea, its your chance to give away a giveaway. 

With 2013 being a year full of unexpected surprises in my life, I want to pay it forward and do just that. Surprise someone! 

So, how do you enter the giveaway?  Well, leave a comment below and tell me about someone you would like to surprise this year.  Who has made a difference in your year?  Who has gone above and beyond for the people around them?  Who volunteers at an organization you love?  Who is intentional in the way they live and brings wonder to the everyday?  Who have you been trying to say thank you to and didn’t know how?   It can be one of your best friend (my sure have been a big support this year), your nanny, mother-in-law, office assistant.  But, lets not forget about the lady who we always see passing out the bulletins at church or coming early to set up the coffee counter, the lady who sits at the front desk in your building and made sure the Christmas decorations were up in the lobby.  there are lots of little angels in our lives who we often over look yet see all-the-time.

Leave a comment and tell me who you would like to send the book to and why. 

The contest will be open until Friday afternoon where I’ll draw an entry from random and contact your for the best address to send our special surprise. 

Anyone is welcome to enter so share with your friends and let them know that its time to celebrate everyday like its a holiday!
