Giveaway winners!!!!

Oh I must apologize for the delay in picking the winners....yesterday was a full day. Lots of kisses and laughter from five of the sweetest toddlers I know, as well as normal routine, and then a prospective college dinner with my youngest. This college choosing has become quite the challenge. My middle son filled out ONE application. He knew where he wanted to go and filled out the application! Not so with my daughter! I am praying lots over this decision!

So with such a busy day, last night I was just too tired to pick the winner from the giveaway. So that leaves us with a task for this terrific Tuesday.....pick a winner!!!!!!! It is my joy to do this giveaway....after last week's post on perspective, so many of you said kind things, but it made me realize how we all struggle with this. We all need daily reminders to keep the balance, to juggle what we do and still remember the important things! Thanks friends, for the encouragement and the honesty in which you commented. Sure made me feel better!

So the giveaway. NOTHING scientific was employed to do this giveaway. Not surprising to me, as I haven't a scientific bone in my body...just ask my hubby! =)

I took my white paper and wrote each of your names on there, and cut them into little strips, then I placed them in my butter colored SLaHOME ruffled bowl, and drew out two names. The first one was the winner of the AllModern.com $50 gift certificate,

and that winner is APRIL, !!! Congrats April......hope this makes your day a happy one! April is facing some of the same issues I am with her daughter college shopping as well as marking some very sentimental milestones in her senior's school life. She has her last sports banquet coming up, as her talented daughter is a cross country runner. You know that's going to be emotional! Good luck April, and I hope you find something you love! I'll get you set up with Jamie, via email, to use your $50 gift certificate from AllModern.com! Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!! You can visit April to congratulate her at Straight from the Heart!

Then the winner of the SLaHOME products is Wendy from RelativelyUnique...... a new reader and follower! Congrats to Wendy; and here's what Wendy wins.......drum roll please.....A SL Everyday Grilling Cookbook, a Evanston Table topper for a small table, a set of Gail Pittman Hand Painted Coasters (Wendy can choose whether she wants the green or yellow ones), a set of Abingdon Votive Holders and a pair of Somerset square bowls, which were once a part of the Somerset Trio.....sorry but the third sister left the trio! Wendy, if you will email me, we can set you up to receive your SLaHOME winnings. I'll also throw in a few of our small cookbook that I use for giveaways at parties!

What a fun day to share with my friends. I hope your day is blessed whether you were a giveaway winner or not. You've all surely blessed MY life! thanks!

Lucky girls! I know they will enjoy your wonderful prizes.

I know just how you feel about this college decision. My older son picked one school. Younger son has applied to several and will have to audition for their programs...then decide. It's nerve wrecking and does require prayers.
