My Christmas Came Early

November 24, 2012 — 4 Comments

School was over and Thanksgiving break was upon us. I  was seated behind my desk, talking and laughing with my sister, Jeanne and my friend, Wendy. Earlier I had pulled a prank on Wendy, and we were laughing about it together. My laptop was open on my desk when I glanced down at the opening statement of a new email. The words jumped off the page and I loudly sucked all the air out of the room, and cried out, “You guys I think I won this amazing giveaway!”

I tried to read it aloud to them, but my mind was whirling and my eyes were jumping from one part of the email to another. Finally, my sister came behind me and read the email to me. YES! I was reading it correctly. I really had won an amazing Holiday Giveaway hosted by two of my favorite blogs!

The email asked for my personal information so they could send me the gifts, but in my excitement I could not call to mind my address or my phone number. Jeanne, once again stepped in and began to recite my home address and phone number as I typed them into my return note. Who would have thought winning a giveaway could be such a crazy adrenalin rush!

Pictured below are the incredible Holiday Giveaway prizes! Along with showing you all the prizes, I want to give a BIG SHOUT out to  The Inspired Room and the Reluctant Entertainer.  Click on the links and check out these great blogs on Hospitality! And….Thanks again Melissa and Sandy! You made my Christmas come early!!

I’ll post pictures of me and my lovely prizes once they all arrive!!

  1. Wow! Christmas indeed! Congratulations! Those are amazing gifts. Trying not to covet that KitchenAid mixer. 🙂

  2. So awesome!


    • Deanna, you’re the reason I started following The Inspired Room. I saw it on the “blogs you follow” list and once I went to Melissa’s blog, I fell in love with it. Then it was from her blog I found the Reluctant Entertainer. So thanks goes to you for helping me connect with them in the first place!
