Before I announce the winner of my first ever GIVEAWAY, I want to apologize for being a slacker this week and not posting a new blog. There are a TON of recipes I have sitting around that I am ready to try, but this week has been crazy! I had grand plans of making at least 2 posts with Easter related themes…fail, Easter is next weekend and I will be lucky to get one in. I have a super cute Easter Cupcake stand that my friend who gave me my apron, I MUST use it! AND I wanted to do a special cupcake post for our first wedding anniversary, which is this weekend…fail #2. I will get around to a new post with a legit recipe post ASAP, I promise!
But first, I have to post a picture in honor of our anniversary! Of course Doug is about 50 lbs lighter now, but I still love this picture! Happy Anniversary!! You are the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I could not have been blessed with a better husband! You are amazing!
Now, onto the main event, the drawing. I debated on how to do this, because typically it is done by taking the total number of posts and using an online random number generator. However, I wanted to ensure that everyone who did the extra steps for extra entries received credit. So, I created a document (which can be seen HERE) and numbered with everyone who entered names in the order they posted what they did to enter, so that it was fair. Next time I will specify to post in separate comments to get credit. THANK YOU so much for all who participated and subscribed. It is so fun to find out how many people follow me, and now subscribe! I am glad everyone loves the blog, it inspires me to continue on! AND, I have been contacted already for someone to sponsor the next giveaway soon!
Alrighty….the winner of this first giveaway is……. Nicole Welkener! I will be contacting you via email to discuss how to get your prize to you. Congrats!!
Thanks again everyone who entered! Have a great weekend!! (OH, and sorry for the color font..I think the first Monster drink I have had in a while is making me a bit hyper!)
