Fall Giveaway Winner and Award Time!

I KNOW you've been waiting ALL day to find out who won my Fall Wreath giveaway. I sense you've been sitting at your computer hitting "refresh", and wondering why I haven't yet posted my winner, since I SAID I was gonna do it on Saturday!!!

Well, let's just say the brain doesn't work quite like it use to and I (for some unknown reason), THOUGHT I was supposed to pick my winner tonight and announce it on Sunday!!! Suddenly I had a revelation (OK, I re-read my blog post), and realized I was supposed to have my winner picked already!!!! Yikes! I quickly phoned my best friend Kim, because she needed to be on the phone with me. What if she won? I won her giveaway just a few days ago and we've both been concerned that it would look pretty fishy if she won mine too!!!! Oh the guilt we felt when I won her's, I almost forfitted! Then we both decided that was silly, I won fair and square and by golly I want that Snickers bar! LOL...So, once I secured Kim on the phone, I popped over to and plugged in my numbers and guess who won????


I know you are just busting at the seams, waiting to find out who won...but you must hear this very important message first...

It's Award Time!

Don't scroll down and bypass this award...what if you're in there????

My dearest friend Kim has given me this award...Thank you Kim.

I don't want to sound too much like a ditz, NOR do I want to sound ungrateful,...but I have no idea what it actually means... Does this mean I need to be sweeter? Does this mean I am from Columbia? Does this mean I can lift a car with just one hand? Well, I have to really toss this one around in my head and figure it out, but meantime, I am to pass it along to the blogs I read daily...

Here are a few...(in no particular order)...I try to get around the blog-o-sphere a bit, when I do, I make an effort to hit these blogs daily. I may not always leave comments if I'm in a hurry, but be sure I'm lurking out there somewhere, LOL...

Now, if you're in that list, you are a hot cup of strong coffee, or something like go pass it on to some of the places you like to visit each day! :)

Alright, OK, I hear ya! On to our winner...I bet you already scrolled down to see if it was you, didn't you? Uh-huh! Ok, .....drum-roll.....The winner is....

Now, if you go to the Giveaway post and count down to commenter #4, you will find:

Sandy (aka Doris the Great) from Aging Disgracefully.

Pop over to her blog and congratulate her, and while you're there, look around, she always has something on there that makes me just giggle my toes off!

Don't be sad if you didn't win...I'll be having 2 more giveaways before Christmas!!!

Have a beautiful, Jesus filled weekend my friends!

  4. I can't understand why they are laughing at my picture! LOL Just cause I look like the last rose of summer! LOL.
    Oh and you spelled forfeited wrong! Just thought I'd let you know because I'm good like that! You know being your personal editor and all.

    Oh and if you would have actually read MY whole post about the award you wouldn't be confused as to what it's all about because I diligently copied and pasted the rules! LOL

    You know I love you my friend!!

  5. Congrats to Sandy.

    Poor Kim, you broke her heart. :)

    You girls make me laugh. Thanks for the giveaways and the fun.

  6. Oh my gosh, this was a totally funny post!!!!!!!!

    I love that picture of Kim. That made me laugh! Then, when you described the award, that was funny too. I'm not sure what that means either, but I'LL TAKE IT!! lol! Thank you!!!

    And I literally went, "Uhhhhhhhhhh" when I saw I wasn't the winner. But, that's okay, I'm happy for the winner!! Congrats!!!!!

  7. how fun! what a neat idea to do give-aways! :) And I love fall decorations. We ourselves have a pretty wreath that my mom bought me! (Personally, however, I've done and moved into Christmas mode...just got Casting Crowns Christmas CD and that's all that plays in the car!)

  8. Oh thank you, thank you, thank you! I can't wait to receive my beautiful wreath in the mail!
