I am back from out of town. It will take me most of the day, I'm sure, to get caught up, write about my surprise party, birthday, and weekend getaway. So check in later for those. In the meantime, I used very amazing technology to determine the winner of my birthday contest. It consisted of writing down everyone's name who commented on my blog in March, then writing down everyone's name who commented on my birthday. Then my husband picked a number between 1 and 82 (the total number of entries). It was #51. Then I counted to 51 and...
the winner is
From "Just So"
And she wins this:
Congratulations, Shanna! Just email your mailing address to me at coldfingers1 at hotmail dot com and your package will soon be on its way!
As for the rest of you, thanks for your comments and support, and for making my birthday so awesome. It was really fun having so many people wish me a happy birthday. Last year I think I got about 4 phone calls on my birthday and 1 or 2 emails. This year, it was about 5 times that. So thank you!
(Note to those of you with upcoming birthdays: advertising your birthday on the internet is a great move. Having a giveaway on your birthday? BRILLIANT.)
