Two Lovely Readers

So it might be silly but I always just LOVE it when one of my friends (real or online) wins one of my giveaways. As I try to show through posting these shots–I’m always totally honest and who wins is who wins–I never rig giveaways. However it just tickles me pink when one of my faithful readers gets the goodies! From Tracie is a total sweetheart (with an awesome blog to boot) and she won the giveaway for the business cards and itsme is one of my most faithful giveaway entering readers. (Those daily tweets pay off for her–I think this is the third giveaway she’s won over the past couple of months!)

Anyways–just wanted to give them a shout out and a special congrats!

My Answers & Winners

I love picking winners! It makes me feel like Santa–distributing presents to the lucky girls and boys! Haha. I’ve been getting all sorts of goodies lately–I’m getting to know my UPS man quite well! The other day I opened the door and he was holding 3 big boxes and I went “Oh! Lots of goodies today!!!” He said, “Yeah I guess you were making up for not having anything yesterday” Hahaha!!! You know you’re a review/giveaway blogger when…. 😉
I figured since I’ve been asking all kinds of questions for entries lately I should answer them for you as well 🙂 So here’s my answers!
Favorite Christmas Tradition: My favorite traditions growing up were our whole Christmas routine that was the same every single year–you can read about that here on What Christmas Means to Me. With hubbies new job that makes taking time off difficult at best, it looks like the next few holidays will be spent “just us” as a family of four. Although part of my heart breaks to not get to see my family back home (Wyoming will always be “home” for me) I am also really, really excited about establishing new, fun traditions for my kids. I’ve decided to do the ever popular new jammies on Christmas Eve and one special ornament a year. I didn’t have either of those growing up but have heard of other people doing them and think they both sound fabulous!
Cooking Disaster: When we first got married I made a chicken tortilla wrap recipe. It called for hot sauce and all I could find was Texas Pete. I’d never used it before so I had no idea just how hot it was (especially because the recipe called for the chicken to marinate in it)! I took one bite and couldn’t eat anymore and hubby decided it was fun to see how much he could muscle down so he sat there eating it with his eyes watering and then got a stomach ache later–Hahahaha!!! Needless to say I never made that recipe again!!!
Favorite Personalized Item: Such a hard call! I love my hand stamped necklace with Amber & Tyler’s names on it and also the new bracelet that I got for this review–they’re all great!
