Happy New Year -- My first giveaway! *updated*

For quite a while now, I've wanted to do a giveaway on my blog. Since winning the "Pay It Forward" giveaway from Amanda at Funny Days With Mommy and Maddie (visit them!), I've been searching trying to come up with an idea, and I think I finally have one.

Who isn't a fan of Williams-Sonoma? Their high-quality cookware and servingware has graced the tables and kitchens of many around the country for over 50 years. Just looking at the products on their site makes me want to throw a dinner party.

Here's where my lucky readers can benefit from my obsession with Williams Sonoma -- I'm giving you the chance to win your favorite Williams-Sonoma product (under $40)!

Here are the rules -- you must be a follower of my blog to enter, and you must agree to host your own "Pay It Forward" giveaway if you win (the "prize" is up to you). All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post telling me which product from the Williams-Sonoma web site -- $40 or under -- you'd like to win before the deadline, tomorrow night, January 4, 2010 at 11:59pm EST. I will choose a random winner from all entries (via to win the product they chose and announce it on my blog Tuesday morning, January 4, 2010. Please be sure to include your email, or be sure your email is located somewhere on your blog so I may notify you!

You are not required to post about, comment on Facebook or retweet the giveaway, but if you do help spread the word, I'd be much appreciative!

*Update: In an effort to give more people a chance to win, I'm expanding the giveaway rules. Since some readers may not have a Google account and/or may not be able to "follow" me, I'm offering an alternative. If you would still like to enter but can't "follow" my blog, you can either retweet the giveaway or make a post about it on your blog, and leave your comment below with the product you'd like and letting me know which method you chose to enter. If you "retweeted," please leave me your username so I can follow you! Thanks everyone!

Good luck!

*Disclaimer: I have not been paid or otherwise compensated for offering this giveaway. This prize has not been provided by Williams-Sonoma, and the company claims no such endorsement or responsibility for this giveaway.
**The winner of this giveaway will be chosen completely at random from all entrants who have commented on the post before January 4, 2010 11:59pm EST through
