I went to the random number generator and asked them to give me a number between 1 and 156 and the number they gave me was 30. 30 . . . . I wouldn't in a million years pick 30 out of that many numbers but I guess that is why it is so random. I hit it 3 more times and it gave me 6, 17, and 101. . .. !!!!!! I don't know but I think a number like 72 or 113 is so much more random than those, but I am not a random number generator, obviously. So anyway, I counted through the entries to, ahem, 30 and was careful to not count any people from other countries (you are still winners in my book remember that) and after counting and double counting I have found this to be the winning comment of the Bangles from the giveaway:
I probably should use this time to comment on how fabulous that bracelet is and would be on my little arm, but I also want to say that you seem to be a genuinely awesome person and this blog has been very inspirational to me.
Congratulations Rebecca! Thank you for your very nice comment as well! I will be emailing you shortly with the details! And, really, thank you everyone who entered to win it. I was surprised and shocked by the turn out.
Just in case you were wondering, it has been a very refreshing and enlightening time for me these past few days. Truly, struggle brings growth. I feel very sparkly and new and energized from this finding. I have visual metaphors and analogies for you to describe all of this but they all border on cheesy and sappy so I will spare you all of that. Just know that I feel better now. Sunnier. A little . . . Sparkier. Less hard work. (you seen High Fidelity?) So ya. Ahhhhhh. The drama has lifted. It feels good.
I took these pictures on Saturday actually. I have been wanting to wear this silk sheath dress for over a year now but it took me seeing the super cool hot chick from DIRTY HAIR HALO tie her sheath dress at the bottom to realize how to make it work. Thank you Shannon. (I told you in the comment of that post that I would do this someday. Betcha thought I forgot or was just kissing your butt, but I didn't and I wasn't.)
