Get Excited!!!

Aw man is it easy to be a lazy bum while at home or what?!

And I am loving every second of it :)

I hope everyone had a great weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day. I know there are a lot of deserving moms out there, so I hope you were pampered right yesterday!

On Friday, I mentioned that I had a fun giveaway coming up. Weren't you so intrigued?? lol.

I figured that the Easter candy hangover had finally passed, so it is time to reveal my 2011 giveaway extravaganza!!! Ok, maybe it isn't that fancy, but hey, who doesn't like winning stuff??

Shhhh, don't tell customs, but I snuck back some extra special items from Germany. No, not the goatie, although I was tempted. Very tempted.

You remember Things You Never Knew Were German, right?!

Well I mentioned how Haribo and Trolli candies were made in Germany. So of course I had to bring a bunch back to share with one lucky reader.

German Goodie Giveaway Grand Prize includes: 

Hey, if they look smooshed, they are. You try being in a suitcase on an airplane for 10 hours!

Haribo Starmix Mini Packs
Haribo Happy Cherries
Haribo Gummy Bears
Haribo Color-rado
Trolli Sour Gummy Worms
Ritter Sport Mini Pack (yummy German chocolate)
Hackle Butt Kissing Fresh Pack

Couldn't fool you, could I?! Saw that extra something in there, well how could you forget these babies???

Yep, brought back a few of those packs as well. Isn't this giveaway just awesome!?? Ha.

And actually, I found 3 packs at the store. So that means there will be 2 Runner-Up Prize Packages.

Those include:

Hakle Butt-Kissing Fresh Pack
Handful of Haribo Gummy Bear Mini Packs

There is no catch to the giveaway, nothing to 'like' or join. It is my way to say thank you for all the support and loving comments I have received over the last few months. I wish I could send something to every single one of my readers! But that might break the bank a bit.

Just sign into the linky list below, which I thought was the easiest way to keep track of you. Include your URL if you have one, and if not, it isn't required.

And tell your friends! Or don't. That way you'll have a better chance of winning :)

Again, this is just a tiny show of my gratitude to the great readers and supporters of TexaGermaNadian. You guys rock!

Have a great Monday, and don't forget to enter!!! Entries are open until midnight Sunday, May 15th. And the winners will be drawn at random. Good luck!
