And the Winner Is......

In spite of being under the weather and looking a little bedraggled, Miss Joy shook up the (over 135) names in the bushel basket, and pulled out one little name....

To win this:

And the winner is.....

ELLE BEE! Congratulations Elle! I love visiting Elle Bee's blog, which I discovered after she visited here one day (and I'm so glad she did). She has a wonderful writing style and I love to hear the daily adventures of the twins! I can visit over there and draw energy from Elle....I think she's a wonderful mom! She catches those moments on camera that she can pull out in the future and remind her children how much they put her through and how she deserves BIG rewards! :) (Not can tell she embraces every moment and counts it a blessing to be mom to not only her twins but her daughter as well). Again, congratulations, Elle!

Thanks to everyone that entered and left funny (and scary) creepy crawly stories! I enjoyed reading all of the comments and it made me feel a little better to see I'm not the only one to react the way I did with the little critter visitor! And loved the headline, Paula,.... Blogger Kills Geico Gecko! Gosh, now I feel guilty! :)

Thanks also to all my faithful readers (old and new). I appreciate each and every one of you! Those that don't blog, but email me and leave comments on a regular basis were counted as followers too because I know you stop by to visit every chance you get and I really appreciate that! God bless you all!

My goal today (after our school day is over) is to pull out my fall decor, (which really isn't all that much), and start sprinkling fall touches throughout our home. I have really enjoyed and been inspired by the fall decor in all of your homes and I've really enjoyed getting fall recipe ideas too! Autumn is my favorite season! I'm looking forward to those cooler days and cozy evenings!

I'll be back tomorrow for Faithful Fridays. Have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping by! :)

Congratulations to Elle! She must be thrilled. I'm sad that I missed out on the opportunity to sign up for your giveaway, but there were lots and lots of entries so I wouldn't have won anyway. LOL! I did however have the pleasure of going back and reading your post about your uninvited guest. I would have reacted the exact same way. Your post had me laughing on the edge of my seat. Thanks for sharing your fun and excitement.
Blessings to you~ Birgit

Marjorie (Molly) Smith said...

Well poo, lol, congrats Elle Bee. I sure would have loved that.
Hope you get your fall decorations out today. LOL...I am still trying to work up nerve to get in my paint/store room and clean so I can get in there and start painting again.
If you get a chance check out my blog for today. I did something different and wondered what my friends thing about it.
I do not mean to offend anyone but this just touched my heart and my heart lead the way.
