Flower Headwarmer Headband Giveaway!

Before I even received all the sweet comments from y'all on my flower headband headwarmer pictured in a recent post {thank you, btw!}, I had a little something special in the works for my bloggy friends.  As silly as it sounds, I truly do feel like I know many of you and I enjoy every sweet comment that you make!  Not only did I want to show my appreciation for your readership, but I also wanted to include you in my birthday celebration - which usually gets lost in the Christmas hubbub.  I was always that kid that had to bring cupcakes to school before or after the winter vacation (darnit, mom and dad...but then, I can't really talk since Becks' birthday is in June!). 

Anyway...

I am giving away THREE darling headwarmer headbands!  Yay!  I have three colors to give away - purple, cream, and black, and they look absolutely fantastic on.  They're wonderful for this winter weather and because they're made to be worn loose-ish, they don't give you hat head and remove effortlessly.  I, for one, am obsessed!





Here's how you can win...
{You Must...}

Be a follower of Babbling Abby.  Join on the lefthand side of the page, and leave me a comment telling/reminding me that you follow!

{Additional Entries...}

Blog about this giveaway and leave me a comment with the link back to your post. 

Follow me on twitter @babblingabby and tweet about this giveaway to your followers.

{Rules...}

Up to 3 entries allowed per person.
You may only win once.
Sorry, but you can't choose the color!  I'll pick at random who wins which color once winners are chosen.
This giveaway ends on December 23rd (my birthday!) at 12AM EST. 
Winner will be announced by January 1st. 
If the winner doesn't contact me with their address within 48 hours, a new winner will be selected. 

Thanks so much!  Good luck!

{ETA:  I ordered these from a sweet girl at church!  She doesn't have a website, but you can certainly find a ton of reasonably priced vendors on Etsy!}

I was SO going to ask you where you got this when I saw it in your post. So cute! I'm basic (see: boring) so I would totally love the black one, not that I'm being picky :)

And I follow you on twitter (but, where have you been??) and tweeted about this!

The TOP 5 reasons I need one of these.
1. WE HAVE THE SAME NAME.
2. You are the reason I am all caught up in this whole bloggy world. (thanks!)
3. Recess duty would be soooo much more fun with a) less noise (muffeled by ear warmer) b) warm ears. c) Cute ears!
4. I would totally blog about it and give you mad props!
5. I love the wildcats, two year old train lovers, Diet Coke, teaching, and CUTE EAR WARMERS!

Of course I follow! If I tweeted I would tweet! <3
