500 Followers & My First Giveaway

I am so happy to say that 500 amazing people have decided to follow along with little ol' me. This is such a special thing for me. Just wow! I can't believe 500 people actually enjoy reading what defines my life. When I started SimplyHeather, I never would have thought a blog with a plain layout, zero entries & zero followers would turn into what it's become. Seeing how far I've come at different mile marks pretty much excite me. The other day I was thinking how I can't wait to see where I am a year from now, because I'm definitely not where I was a year ago. 



I just want to say thank you. I admire all of you. Honestly, bloggers are my favorite people. I really hope you never stop blogging and I really hope we can become closer through our bloggy journeys! I would love to get to know each of you more so then I already do. So if you aren't already, come see me over at Facebook or Twitter. You all are my inspiration.

Vlogging
Remember when I said I would start vlogging once I reach 500 followers? Well that is still my plan. To start off my videos I decided I'll start with a q/a video. I know, I'm SO original. I am so psyched to start this and have a YouTube channel along with my blog. So if you have any questions for me, or just want to do a girl a favor by making up a couple, just ask in your comment below and they will be answered along with a personal shout out ;)

With all of that being said, I have decided to host my very first giveaway! I wasn't planning on doing one until I was at 730 followers, but why not start now. Good luck y'all!!

Congratulations on 500 Followers!

My favorite drink from Starbucks is the Vanilla Bean Frappuccino or hot chocolate. I'm not a big coffee fan, but I love the smell!

Oh and here are my questions for your vlog:

1. What's your favorite TV show?
2. Every time I tweet about a giveaway I say "Tweet Tweet". I find it amusing. What do you do that you find amusing?
