I am joining forces with, oh, I don't know, about a million other bloggers at ROCKS IN MY DRYER in the Dog Days of Summer Giveaway. You don't have to be a blogger to play, all you need do is leave a comment on this post and you have a chance to win!

Ah, but what will you win? Something wonderful of course. Something lovely, and yummy and so very Dutch. Take a look:

If you are the lucky one whose name I draw, you will be munching on de lekkerste treats from Holland. Chocolate pastilles by Droste, milk chocolate bars (or dark if you prefer), mini Stroopwaffels, and a taste of a very typical Dutch breakfast/party treat: Hagelslag. Don't be afraid, it's little candy sprinkles.

But wait, there's more!

All of that yumminess will arrive with this cool little bag:


I don't know what you will use it for, but if I was keeping it, it would definitely be my bag of cuteness to carry around when I wanted to feel, well, cute and unencumbered. This bag would DEFINITELY NOT hold a diaper. I mean to say it would hold a diaper if you wanted to put a diaper in it, but I am so tired of carrying diapers inside every bag I own, I would just like to specify one bag as the NO DIAPER ZONE. Come to think on it, I would like to specify my life as a no diaper zone. It's time. I am over it.

I am also way off topic.

It's easy to play, just leave a comment (with or without sympathy for my eternal diaper changing future) and from the names here, I will draw a winner. If you are not a blogger, please also leave an email address in your comment so I can reach you if you win. I will ultimately need your address, so play only if you feel safe giving that to me.

For more players (and I am not kidding there are lots!) click here and have a blast hopping the blogosphere to enter drawings. Seriously, who doesn't want free stuff?

  4. Awesome! I love the bag - it is very undiaper-ish! I would love something just for me right about now! What great yummy food too!

    When we were stationed in North Dakota the wind was awful there too. There are NO trees to break the force of it. It doesn't sound like we had it as extreme as you guys but, ugg! I hated wind by the time we left!!

  6. If it makes you feel any better, I had 4 in diapers at once last year. Finally my oldest is out of them completely and my toddler is only in them at night but I still have 2 in them round the clock. For a while longer at least... I no what youm ean about a no diaper zone! LOL

  7. I hear you on the diaper bag. I have three in diapers right now. Please enter me! Thanks

  8. Hagelslag was the main reason my DS wanted to move to the Netherlands, lol! He LOVES those!

    Also, does lekkerste mean "delicious" or "tasty" in Dutch? I know that my German daughter's mom, Margareta, always says "lekker" when she finds something delicious.

    Wish I knew Dutch...

    ReplyDelete
  9. Woah. That sounds and looks delicious! Sign me up! I have two in diapers. That bag is certainly too mommy cute to have a diaper in it! No way. ;)

  12. Oh, I've spent time in Holland (Utrecht) and love, love, love stroopwaffles (even if I can't spell it right!) and love Hagelslag too. I remember packing some to bring home in my suitcase and the box broke. I had chocolate sprinkle-things all over everything!! Please enter me. It will make up for the loss. LOL!

  50. I can sympathize, I remember being SO HAPPY when my youngest was potty trained. Anytime I would contemplate little #4, I remember I would have to return to the land of diapers and naps, and usually that is enough to make me happy with my 3 boys. lol

  134. I'm not really here for the prizes! Imagine that! I found you in a roundabout way from someone else's blog - maybe Return of the White Robin?? - because I saw you were in Holland (or the Netherlands). I used to live just outside Amsterdam in Amstelveen during the early 90s. Interesting country ... great cheese. We were there for 2.5 years before moving on to France.
    Just wanted to hi to another person brave enough to take on life in a new country!
