WINNERS, WINNERS, WINNERS of our 2nd blogfest!!

Remember that thing we did last Thursday? Where christy and 30-some other coffee-mug-lovers posted pictures of their mugs and let us take a glimpse into part of their lives (kitchens, dusty windowsills, countertops, and all)?? You remember? Good.

Now, do you remember there were PRIZES?? Here's how it went:
  • a really super cool coffee mug that gets along well with others - we swear! (sent to a US address) OR amazon gift card at the same price (sent wherever you are around the world)
  • TWO PRIZES (same options) if we have more than 30 participants. 
Okay, so, as you know, there were two prizes awarded. There was only one fair way to do it. I took the first column in the linky pn our sidebar (through #20) and christy took the rest. I picked the one that appealed to me the most and christy picked her favorite. Okay, that might not be the only fair way. But it's how we did it and we're the boss(es). So there ya' have it. Just remember that we appreciate you all and are so happy that you were happy with the blogfest idea. That makes you all winners (we have to say that, we're teachers).

erica's winner is (dum da da dum): Donea Lee
with honorable mention to Madeleine for the doll mug a friend made for her

christy's winner is (dum da da dum): Lindsey Brooks
with honorable mention to Jen Daiker for her apple mugs

What? You're not either Donea or Lindsey?? That's okay - you can still win a fabulous prize!!! Just click over there (points to the right. yes, your right) on the 150 button - we're giving away either the Hunger Games trilogy or the first 3 books of the Gone series (or a prize to be discussed if you already have both) as a thank-you for helping us reach 150!! Just be a follower and comment on that post and I'll pick a winner AT THE SAME TIME the Packers are handed the Vince Lombardi trophy. That's right, I said it. The Packers will win the Superbowl.

It's coming home, baby

(We aren't posting a recipe today because our weekend post will cover EVERYTHING you need to host the ultimate Packer Superbowl party. This is gonna' be a fun week!!)


  1. Yah, congrats you two. I'm going to go check out your mug entries.

  2. Thank you so much for the honorable mention! That was super sweet!!! Congratulations to the winners though!! Fabulous mugs! Fabulous blog fest!

  3. Congrats to the winners! It was a fun blogfest, even if I was a day late and a dollar short (par for the course, I'm afraid)

  4. Congratulations to your winners!! Was a really fun blogfest!

  5. Hi, ladies,

    I hope you both had a wonderful weekend. It looks like Chicago is getting snowed in by Wednesday... Whoopee I can't wait. I'm over winter. It's time for something hot....

    Cocoa, coffee, or tea anyone?


  6. It was an awesome blogfest! I met a lot of great new people and found some wonderful new blogs to follow because of it. Thank you ladies for hosting it!

  7. Thanks, guys, it was fun (and totally christy's idea, btw). The winners will get an email (as soon as erica and christy connect today - sometimes that's not as easy as it sounds!!) explaining what they won and how to collect!!

  8. Congrats to the winners! I thought all the mugs were terrific but Donea's was terrific! Jen's apple mug was pretty great for a party though!

  9. Since my Colts didn't make it to the Superbowl this year and the Steelers are one of the two teams I hate the most (Patriots being the other), all I can say is GO PACK! I'll be routing for you all the way.

    Congrats to the blogfest winners! It was a lot of fun.

  10. Ooooohhhhh, this is a really nice way to end a day spent dealing with THAT parent. Yes, teachers... you know the one. ;) Thank you! <3

  11. Yay, 150! Gone, baby, I'm in for Gone! (Already have the Hunger Games trilogy). Go Packers! Too bad they'll be playing at 3am my time. :(

  12. Congrats to the Winners! Everyone had some really great mugs!
