You’re All Winners In My Book

January 4, 2010 at 9:27 am 10 comments

Happy Monday! I know today is the first day back to work after a long break. I don’t feel sorry for you people. Some of us didn’t get any extra time off. But I’m going to pretend that I’ve been gone a while and I’ll greet you today with a few announcements.

First on the agenda, giveaway winners. Remember on Christmas when I blogged in my jammies and showed you a coffee sleeve and some cute little notepads? (By the way, that photo was taken the night before — so, no, that isn’t what I look like when I wake up. I wish.)

First, the coffee sleeve:

The tiny notebook:

And the set of two jotters:

Congrats Angie, Rachel, and Jill!! I’ll email the winners and send you your prizes.

But I’m feeling generous today. Poor, but generous. I really think you should all be winners. You should all get a little somethin’ somethin’ from me. Since I don’t actually buy these items for you, I don’t get to just choose when a new item is to be given away. And I’m poor, remember. So your gift needs to be free. Which leads me to my point… I’ve decided to update my recipe blog. Some of my favorite recipes, just for you! Just click here and check them out! I’ve got a few new ones posted but I’ll continue to update throughout the week.

And our final order of business. Make sure you check out the latest giveaway. I’m THRILLED about it. I really wish I could win this one. Click here to visit that page and enter.

Does anyone else have any announcements? Does anyone know what tomorrow is? I can think of two things- most of you will only be able to think of one.

Oh and also… I have the cutest niece in the world.

The End.

Oh and also… my cousin got married this weekend. It was fantastic. The rehearsal dinner was at Darrell K. Royal Stadium… HELLO! We’ll talk more about it later in the week.

The End Again.

**Edited to Add: Ten on Tuesday questions are posted – click the ToT button on the right sidebar. I’m so excited about this set!

    Wow – what a great place for a rehearsal dinner!

    And other than tomorrow is 5 days until Stephen’s birthday and it’s a Tuesday, I don’t know what tomorrow is… what am I missing?

    You have a RECIPE blog?? Awesome. I’d love to do one, but I fear I’d lose all sense of time and motherly purpose that way.

    WHAT??? I won something? I am excited… but this may mean I need to get over my fear of writing in new notebooks. 🙂 Thank you! Now, that said, I can still win the super cute apron, correct? 🙂

    I want you to know that my husband and I are going to watch The Biggest Loser and it’s all because of you. It’d better be good!
