And The Winner Is......

I have been a little overwhelmed at the number of comments and entries in my Blogoversary giveaway. When it came time to put all of the names in the bowl there were 113 entries. Crazy!I have felt the bloggy love!
And the winner is.......

Congratulations Bren!

There are so many reasons I am glad that I started my blog. Even if my first post didn't have a comment on it....until the other day. I love the fact that I am keeping a history of my family. I enjoy the creative outlet, creative being used loosely. But the best part of my blog is the people I have met and the friendships I have made. Bren is one of those people. I consider her among my best friends. We have discovered that we lived in the same ward at one time, our husbands worked together and she grew up in my Aunt's ward. But because of our blogs we have become friends!


  1. Yay for Bren!!! Lala couldn't have picked a better winner!

    Again, congrats on your one year mark. Mine's coming up next!

  5. I am SO EXCITED!!!! I won. I can't believe I won. I mean I NEVER win. And I won. And I won the BEST - I can't wait to wear my apron while eating my See's candy.
    Why don't you come over & we'll kick back on the couch together eating candy & watch a movie or just chat while the kids play...
    Sounds Great to me!
    Thanks for picking me. I knew I loved that girl of yours...
    Woo hoo - I won. I won...

  6. Seriously - I won.. I thought you were just teasing me when you called. I mean - you totally made my day. But I am actually glad I didn't have that 10 pound of chocolate with me after getting the bill for the girls hair. Now that I think about it. I am really surprised I didn't stop & get a Sonic on the way home. But I was talking to you & didn't even think about it.. Thanks!
    I won - I won.. Yeah for me!

  7. Congrats to Bren. I promise not to hold it against Lala for not picking me. ;-)

  8. What I was mislead. I swear I told myself it was a 10 pd box of chocolates... I always am right & I always believe myself...
    Whoo - what a relief to know that I am not going to be 300 pounds fatter next week.... Thanks for having my back..

  9. Bren...I thought you would be just a little more excited!
