Celebrate with Soap Giveaway

Just what am I celebrating you ask? Our high speed Internet service has been fixed! I told you I would be back! It only took 3 weeks, some unreturned phone calls, several no show appointments and just a little bit of aggravation...just a little bit, (OK, that is a fib) but in the end he finally showed up and fixed it.

I really thought with my absence I would come back to find readers had lost interest and followers had moved on but that wasn't the case at all which really made my day I have to admit. I am so greatly appreciative of every person who has stuck with me and shown me friendship and support over the last year on this blog with their wonderful comments. I am also thankful I have an outlet to share our farm and goat herd with others, so I don't completely annoy my husband talking about the goats. I thought a good way to show my appreciation would be with a big THANK YOU and a Giveaway!

What is the prize you ask? Two large bars of handmade Shiloh Prairie Goat Milk Soap, straight from our farm and made with milk from our dairy goat Dym and her two daughers Penny and Rose. There will also be a 3rd surprise bonus included. I would tell you what it is but that kind of ruins the whole surprise part now doesn't it? Now pay attention because the important instructions on how to enter for a chance to win are below.

In order to enter the Celebrate with Soap Giveaway just leave a comment on this post saying you want to be entered in the contest for a chance to win for one entry.

If you don't have a blogger or other account you can still enter. Just leave a comment under "anonymous" and leave your email in your comment so I can reach you if you win.

You can also get extra entries by doing the following:
  • Blog about this contest on your blog or site for an extra entry. Please leave a link to it here.
  • Or/And tell about it on Facebook for one more entry.
  • Or/And Twitter it for one more entry.
  • Or/And Stumble it for one more entry.
So it is possible to have up to 5 entries in this contest by doing the above listed things but to get those extra entries, you MUST leave a comment on this post with a link to your post on your blog about this giveaway to get your extra entry. You must also let me know if you did any of the other things listed above so I will know how many entries to give you credit for. Otherwise I won't know to give them to you. I don't want anyone to miss an extra entry that they should have gotten because I never knew about it. Thank you.

This contest is open to any reader with a US or Canadian address. The Soap giveaway starts Monday June 1st and will be open until Sunday, June 7 at 12 A.M. Central time. My impartial husband who doesn't read his wife's blog (terrible isn't it?) will draw one name and the winner will be announced on Monday, June 8Th.

My Nubian wethers goat, Brownie, says that he wants to know how you get soap from a goat. He's always concerned about things like this. I'll have a talk with him and explain that it doesn't hurt the goats.
Please enter me in your giveaway so I have a chance to win the soap.
Glad your internet problems are fixed.

I think I may have missed the cut-off for your contest? But if not, here's my comment for one entry. I hate to tweet about it in case it's closed, so I won't tweet for fear of embarrassing myself! :-0

Glad you are back with your internet connection, I can't imagine how frustrating that must have been!

Thanks for popping by my blog and entering MY giveaway! Good to hear from you. :)
