I'm still WAY WAY behind on everything. You'd think a week to catch up on what needs done after a week away would be reasonable, but it is NOT. I have not caught up much AT ALL. I didn't want to leave my contest entrants hanging, though, AND I received my fourth (AWESOME) prize and wanted to show you all, so I am taking a break from playing catch-up to post this. [Next week (hopefully): vacation pictures! Edge of your seat stuff, no?]
First of all, my totally awesome and amazing prize from Whimsy:
There was a drawstring bag full of BEAUTIFUL cards (is there NO END to the talent of bloggers?), pretty pens, stickers and ribbons and fancy brads, a flowery pencil case that I KNOW one of my daughters will want, candy and animal cookies, a magnetic pad AND a gorgeous journal. FABULOUS prize, isn't it? I LOVE it! As you can see from the picture, one of the varieties of candy included was Jujy Fruits. As you can ALSO see (if you look closely), the box of Jujy Fruits is opened. That is because, upon opening the package, I immediately opened the Jujy Fruits and ate a handful. Then I spent the next six hours extracting them from my teeth. Then I went back for more. What is it about Jujy Fruits that makes them worth all that teeth cleaning work and then a day or two of sore jaw muscles? I do not know. But there is something about them. The Mike & Ike's are next! And pink lemonade lollipops! I've never seen that flavor before, but it sounds wonderful! Am I supposed to be sharing with my kids? Oops. THANK YOU, WHIMSY!!!
And NOW, what you've all been waiting for... *drumroll*: THE WINNERS of my mega-PiF contest!!!! The winner of the first prize is... Danielle-lee from A Little Left of Lost!!! Prize number two goes to... the cubicle's backporch from her blog of the same name!!! The third prize is awarded to... Katie, my most loyal lurker!!! The fourth and final (but not really) prize will soon be on its way to... Adriane of Flea D'Lure!!! Ladies, I will be emailing you and/or commenting on your most recent post SOON, or feel free to email me at the address in the sidebar if you read this before I make contact. Also, don't forget that there is a book of your choice from my Bookmooch inventory included in the prize. Please go take a look and let me know what you want. Katie, I'll need you to email me - I actually think I have an email from you from a couple months ago, but I would have to go through about 2000 emails to find it, so have pity on me. If I don't hear from you in a few days, I'll take on that herculean task, but please don't make me. :)
There was also a bonus prize of children's books. That prize goes to... moo of Moo's Moo!!! Moo, all that contacting stuff I mentioned above, etc., etc., you know the drill.
