We have a winner!

We have a winner!

Whew! What a day.

I took my son to a doctor’s appointment at 3. I knew I had to be home by 5 because of the drawing – but the traffic, you know – it slowed me down.

So then I finally got home. It was before 5. But barely.

And I realized that I forgot to figure out how the random number generator thing worked.

So I had to browse that website to find out how to actually do it.

I thought I had to register – so I tried. But it wouldn’t let me register.

But I figured out how to get a random number anyway – without registering.

And I got the number.

But then I tried to post the winner’s name to blogger – it said “TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE”!


Oh – it just occurred to me that you might possibly want to know the name of the winner.

Oops – sorry!


Can I just tell you how EXCITED I AM?!

First, I want to let everyone know that my comment and the comments of my immediate family members (sorry, fam) did not count – so I skipped right over me, Todd (twice), and Connor to get to number 12.

Here is the winning number:

Here are your random numbers:

Which just so happens to be…


Frumpy won. She is the winner!

Go Frumpy! Go Frumpy!

I am so happy Janell won because she is going through some challenges right now. I've never personally met Janell, sadly, but I can tell she is pretty dang cool! She was actually my first blogging friend and I'm happy to know her.

For everyone else - thanks for sharing your comments. It was sooo much fun getting to know all of you. I can't wait to read all of your blogs!

I SERIOUSLY cannot believe how lucky I am =)!!! This SO makes my day!!! I am so excited!!! Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you for doing a giveaway and thank you random for picking me!! =) Can you tell how excited I am?

By the way - I totally couldn't figure out how to use random either and had to call someone to school me on it, so I am impressed you figured it out all on your own!
