200th Post GIVEWAY!!

Dearest blog readers,

This post marks my 200th blog post on Cupcakes & Combat Boots. I can't believe we've already reached this milestone!

There were the times that I used this blog to vent about deployment.

There were the 115 times {and counting} that I blogged about What's for Dinner and hoped that I wasn't boring you.

There were the times that I let you in to my dirty house and hoped you wouldn't judge me too harshly.

There were the times that I tried my hand at being crafty and it didn't always turn out perfectly.

And so, so much more. I seriously love blogging and I'm so glad that I've found a creative outlet that fits my lifestyle.

This blog and you, my readers, bring me so much joy each day. I love reading your comments more than you know. Anytime I get an email about a new comment or notice that I have a new follower I get so happy. Because yes, this blog is a way for me to vent or inspire myself....but I also hope that maybe, just maybe, it can serve as an inspiration to you too.

So in honor of my 200th post on Cupcakes & Combat Boots, I am having my very first GIVEWAY!!

I decided it would only be appropriate to give away some of my favorite things, so here's what you'll get if you win:

A Bath & Body Works candle in White Citrus scent

And a Bath & Body Works wallflower in Black Amethyst scent

{FYI these items were 100% purchased with my own money...nobody is "sponsoring" this giveaway.}

It almost pains me to give these away because I love them so so dearly, but it's worth it for my readers!

Here's how you can enter:

1. Leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite type of post on C&CB.
What do you like reading about the most? {Ex: what's for dinner, Army life, cleaning, shopping, deals & discounts, etc.}.

2. Become a follower of Cupcakes & Combat Boots and leave a comment letting me know that you just became one. {Click on "Follow" in the upper left hand corner} If you're already a follower then just leave a comment that says "I'm aready a follower".

3. Blog, tweet, or Facebook about this giveaway and link back to C&CB on your post. Leave a comment below with the link to your post.

So that means you can potentially enter THREE times for this giveaway! Be sure you leave a comment for each one separately.

Entries will be accepted until Tuesday, June 20th, at 8 AM central time.

Happy entering!

NOTE: This giveaway is only open to people with a shipping address in the continental US or APO/FPO.


  1. I like your "what was for dinner" posts! I've gotten a few good ideas from them! :)

  2. I love your what's for dinner posts. You make great things & good photos of them!

  3. I'm already a follower! :)

  4. It's such a hard decision because I love your recipes. I am learning to cook so I love trying new things. I also love your deployment posts because I am going through my brothers 1st deployment and they really help me understand a little bit more about what to expect and what's going on.

  5. I'm already a follower too!

  6. I love your dinner posts because I get lots of great cooking ideas from them. But I also enjoy reading about Army life because it's something I'm very far removed from; I feel like it gives me a glimpse into another world, and helps me to better understand what it's like to be in someone else's shoes. So basically, I love your blog! :)

  7. Love your What's For Dinner - I come here almost daily to get healthy recipes that are tried and true :) Have tried most of your seafood recipes!

  8. I just discovered your blog and am loving it! I've really enjoyed reading about Army life. My little sister is marrying a lieutenant in the Army in a month, and I feel like getting an inside look will help me support them both even more. I do love your recipes as well though :) Thanks for sharing!

  9. I missed it, b/c I am out of town on 'holiday'.....bummer! But, I love all your blogs, the food ones particularly inspire me but I really love to know what else is going on in your lives!


Comments make my day! Please leave one. :)
