CLOSED! Sandy Coughlin’s Reluctant Entertainer – Book Giveaway

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on September 27, 2010

Update: This giveaway is now closed…and the winners are:

Deborah T. says, “Spent years raising our kids and now I’m tired.”

Michelle L. says, “I am reluctant because I feel like the house, the food, and entertainment must be perfect!”

Janna B. says, “I am a reluctant entertainer because my budget often gets in the way of how I think it’s “supposed” to look or be when we invite people over. I’d like to go hog wild at the grocery store to prepare but I can’t and it’s hard to be creative in this area for me.”

Kristy says, “I subscribe via RSS feed!”

Kelly says, “The thing that makes me the most reluctant is having to tell my hubby we are hosting a get-together. I don’t mind all of the prep work (in fact I love it), but getting him onboard is a chore in itself.”

Winners have all been contacted via email with instructions on claiming their prize.  Thank you all for entering and keep an eye out for the next $5 Dinners giveaway!

This week I’ve got an extra special book to giveaway. The book is called The Reluctant Entertainer, written by the lovely and talented Sandy Coughlin.  I’ve met Sandy on a number of occasions and she just oozes grace, simplicity, and sweetness.I look forward to the next time we meet…which I hope is over coffee, or better yet lunch!

And yes. I said oozes.

She is as lovely as they come, and you sense this with every word in her book.  She will inspire you to get back to entertaining, regardless of whatever your reluctance may be. She was once reluctant. She found her way out…and she will give you the tools to find your inner entertainer!

Here’s the scoop…we’re giving away 5 copies of her book The Reluctant Entertainer!

I have a small house and company means crowded and noisy

My house needs a make over. I have the skills. I have the supplies. But I do not have a good environment.
