GIVEAWAY/Blogging Birthday

Hello guys! Sorry I went MIA last night :). After work, I came home and did a 3.4ish mile run and then practiced the half of body attack I am teaching on Friday. Then I gave the Frankster a bath and did some laundry/ironing. Josh's new car also showed up! To celebrate, we took it out for a spin and ate dinner at Moe's. We also watched Lost (which was super amazing) and did some unpacking.

Today (March 5) is a very special day, it is my blogging birthday! Thats right, I have been writing Itzy's Kitchen for a whole year! To celebrate I have decided to give away a homemade loaf of Cinnamon Sweet Bread:


Yah...that cinnamon sweet bread! Here is the deal, to enter all you have to do is leave a comment telling me where you're from (city, state, whatever!) on this post by Sunday at midnight. You do not need to have a blog to enter! All those lurkers out there- uncover yourselves! To earn an extra entry, if you have a blog, put a link to this contest up on your blog (and let me know either via comment or by sending me an email at itzyskitchen at gmail dot com).

EDITED TO ADD: If you have any dietary restrictions, I will adjust the recipe as needed!
