    Yay! I’ve been wanting to get an ice cream maker for a long time! My mom and I used to make homemade peppermint candy ice cream, and it was soooooo good 😛

    Great contests! Thanks for the fun!

    Homemade ice cream really hits the spot – I remember eating it so fast when I was a boy that I would get mind splitting headaches. We actually turned the hand crank – none of that newfangled electric stuff. So we really earned it. Good times.

  11. says

    This is my first time on your site and I’m totally excited! My button is up and I’ve entered all the contests! What an awesome website!

  12. says

    I’d like to second everything that Brittany just said. I found your website through a friend of a friend… think “6 degrees of Kevin Bacon” style.

  13. says

    Thanks for yet another way exciting contest, y’all.

    But I’m really commenting on a totally unrelated subject. I just noticed your link to donate to hurricane affected states. It often feels like they’re being forgotten while the clean-up and rebuilding has just barely even begun. Thank you for doing that. And I can get one of those for my sidebar….where?

  14. Suanne Giddings says

    Thank you for the opportunity to enter this awesome contest! Wishing you continued success!
