Alpha Bravo Charlie - Giveaway!

Giveaway time! This month I wanted to host a couple of different giveaways to drag out the celebration of my birthday at the end of the month. Around these here parts September shall be known as the month of the mrs.

I figure if I give away free stuff I can be a tad on the obnoxious side about my birthday.

Ya know, bribe you all to just smile and nod.

But seriously, I have some good stuff in store... or at least I think its good stuff, because the point of this month is to giveaway stuff that I really like.

The first is a great kids book, perfect for military kiddos. I wish I could take credit for this great find but I can't I must give credit where credit is due. My sister saw this at her school's book fair and new right away my boys would love it. And love it they do. So much in fact that I ordered a copy to giveaway!Try to see past the Air Force jets on the cover, this book includes all the branches, even a Coast Guard boat or ship or whatever they call those things. The book is a pretty clear cut, you know, C for Charlie and c-130, D for Delta and a Navy Destroyer, E for Echo and paratroopers egressing from said c-130, you get the point.

A quick read, but lots of fun to flip thru with the kiddos. My boys love to read it at night. So much so we brought it home from grandma's with us after our last visit.

Even if you don't have kids you should still enter, this is one of those great hardback books to put on the shelf for the time that you do have little military brats, or give it away as a gift. I'm not above regifting people.

But don't worry, not all my giveaways are kid related.

As always the rules to enter are simple
- for one entry just leave a comment
- for another entry follow this blog
- for yet another entry mention this giveaway on your blog
- and for yet another entry tweet about my wonderful giveaway on twitter

and if you could, leave separate comments for each entry. It's just easier on my feeble mind.

This giveaway will be open till Tuesday, September 8 at noon! Good luck!

  1. Screw the kids. I'd crack the hell up if I saw "paratroopers egressing" in a book for children. Must have it.
