And the Winner Is....

Ahhhh, it's good to be back.  Still trying to figure out what my posting schedule is gonna be.  Do I go back to daily or MWF or what?  I think I'm going to stick with the flexibility of whenever-the-heck-I-feel-like it. 

First, a confession.

I wrote this post a week ago.  I made a list of all the entrants and had one of the offspring pick a number. 


Then I decided y'all should have more time to enter since I'm nice like that.  But, of course, that meant I had to redraw a name because what's the point of accepting new entries if I didn't give the newbies a chance to actually win.  Right?

So the winner according to is:

But before I tell you who was in the #10 slot, let me offer ya'll a slice of birthday cake.  Is this gorgeous or what?  

I got the idea from HERE which actually just redirects to THIS post.  My pictures aren't quite as vibrant as theirs because I used my cell phone and there's a dead light bulb in the kitchen.  Anyhow...

There's real beauty in picking #10:
(a) Ten is my favorite number 
(b) It's also the date of the drawing 10-10 
(c) You get the same name whether you tart at the top or bottom of the list

So...lucky # 10 is MARY from GIGGLES & GUNS.  

Congrats, Mary!  I'll be in touch about shipping out that mystery prize!

I love the, "whenever-the-heck-I-feel-like it" approach. :) And that cake is very pretty. I need to bake a birthday this weekend and might try something similar. Might.

WooHoo!!! It took me a week to realize this. Working like a real person threw me so far behind.
Now I find I caught up on a weeks worth of laughs and I won. Life doesn't get any better.

Thanks, Vicki :o]
