1 Year Bloggaversary Giveaway

With all the Valentine's Day excitement, I almost forgot that today is officially 1 year since the very first post on Living Like the Kings.  So, to celebrate, I'm going to walk you through some of my fav early posts and then feature a giveaway.  No peaking ahead - I'm watching.

The very obvious - first post ever! 
How we met - Part 1 of the love story
And this one because it's happening again.
My treadmill is trying to kill me
This one because I love the pictures of the pups in it.
Don't wake the beast
 And this one last but not least because I want them...anyone want to make some and ship them to me?
Cream Cheese Brownies - recipe

  169. One memorable event that happened this past year was I went on a cruise holiday with my boyfriend!
