A Cocked & Loaded, Shootin’ Stars, & Blasting Giveaway Hop!

God Bless America

Continuing with my Summer Giveaway Spree, welcome to the

Cocked & Loaded, Shootin’ Stars,
& Blasting Giveaway Hop!

July 5th – 11th

Hosted by:



I LOVE the 4th of July and EVERYTHING associated with it. 





I wouldn’t give it up for the world and thankfully I don’t have to.  I send my heartfelt thanks out to the men and women in the military, fighting to allow us the freedom we often take for granted.  Without them and those who came before them, we would be living very different lives.  Here’s a military video, just for fun. :)


Okay, back to the hop.

This hop is Cocked & Loaded with some amazingly great books, Shootin Stars with the Authors & Bloggers, and Blasting a Giveaway with TWO (2) KINDLE FIRES loaded with the Co-Sponsored Author’s book(s).  What could be better than that?

The hop runs from Thursday, July 5th through midnight Wednesday, July 11th

What do you win?

Aside from the two grand prizes being offered by our hosts, I have two prizes being offered for this hop.  Two prizes means two different winners!

It's hard to think after seeing those hotties :). Didn't really do much other than try and stay cool and watch the fireworks.

Thank you so much for being apart of the hop. I love the 4th and I spent it with my kids and grandkids. We love the fireworks and this year we got to let the grandkids in on helping with the firecrackers - LOL My 3 yr old grandson likes the big ones - ha ha

We are having a really bad heatwave in the midwest so I just stayed inside and watched fireworks on TV. Got to see 3 different ones from different parts of the country. Thanks for the giveaway.

Hildie McQueen said...

Yummmy!!! I didn't do anything, my hubs is in the Middle East, so his dogs took turns trying to dig a hole under my butt, they are terrified of fireworks. LOL

What was the question?

I'm not doing anything exciting.

We had a BBQ and went swimming. We had like three different cheese cakes flavors:plain cheese cake, strawberry cheese cake, and baked cheese cake.
Then we launched some fireworks.

*shudders* Those military men do it for me every time!!

We are going to be starting a new tradition...Going to Six Flags because no one is there and there are no lines. Not to mention, they have an awesome firework display. We love it.
