2 winners!

I’m so sorry it took me awhile to announce the winner of the giveaway!  No worries though, I knew who the winner was on Friday, so the cookies have been ordered!  After I thought about it, I actually decided there would be 2 winners…you’ll see why in a minute.

The first winner is Dizzypru who blogs at Prufrock’s Fog.  She is a new Mom to an (almost) 4 month old who she gave birth to at 25 weeks.  Her miracle baby, Isla Marie, is adorable!  Other than that, I actually don’t know her very well, but her comments absolutely cracked me up: 

 

“I love your blog - almost as much as I love the fact that my 2 year old niece was playing with a measuring tape this afternoon and proudly announced to the family that my ass is $25!”

And her story about her most embarrassing date:

“Okay, in 7th grade there was a boy, Dan, who had a huge crush on me. I was horrible. Even though I knew he didn't have a lot of money I would ask him for his lunch money so I could buy a drumstick. I was 11 and apparently soulless! Anyfart, he wrote me a poem that read:


Roses are red,
violets are blue,
you are as sweet,
as chocolate chip cookies.


Yikes. Later on in high school there was a rumor going around that his family was big into in-breeding. Never confirmed it, but come on....clearly "sweet" does NOT rhyme with "cookies."

 

And now, the second winner!  There was only one person who sent me a picture of themselves as a Girl Scout, so I decided she was very deserving of the cookies too!  Either no one else could find a picture of themselves as Girl Scout, or maybe they just didn’t want me posting it?  Regardless, here she is:

Girl Scout Al

Yankee Girl!  She says she thinks she was around 15 at the time, and this was when she was receiving her Girl Scout Silver Award.  I have no idea what that means, but I really hope my daughters aren’t still Girl Scouts when they’re 15.  No offense, but I think that would cause me to drink, a lot more.

Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to everyone for entering!

Hahaha, the cookie poem is as cheesy as it is funny... bad rhyme indeed but still so cute...

I am so embarrassed that I think I am blushing, which is something I hardly ever do!

I am going to be laughing at this all day long.

And thanks for making me a winner too!

I am so excited to win! I screamed up to my husband that I won something and he needed to come down and see the cute shout out Isla. I believe his response was "sigh." Okay, so he was icing his sore back...ummm? Get your butt downstairs dude :)
