Big Blog Giveaway (part deux!)

It happened again. I missed a week. I can explain though. I didn't cook. Well, not a lot anyway. I went out to dinner twice last week for my birthday. I made the trusty spaghetti standby one night when I got home late and didn't have anything prepared and roasted a chicken with just salt and pepper another night. I zipped through the Wendy's drive through last night at about quarter to 10 when I was finally heading home. (I had the worst baked potato I've ever eaten and they forgot to give me a fork. Next time I'm driving the mile across town to go through Burger King!) And then I was up in Michigan Saturday night for Girls' Game Night and really mostly that's about drinking and junk food. So yeah, other than making another loaf of this bread, which I sometimes think I'm existing on, I haven't cooked. I apologize.

But I can tell you that I have used the random number generator and came up with winners for part one of the Big Blog Giveaway! YAY!

The first winner, and winner of the pincushion, is cdziuba! She just started blogging at CeeCeeBlogger and I'm excited to see what her blog turns out to be!

The second winner, and winner of the cupcake liner bowls and potholders, is The Blonde Duck! The Blonde Duck is a writer and an all around fun girl who has some pretty interesting stories going on.

So being that I have no recipe for you this week, lets just skip ahead to the prizes I'm giving out this week...



The first prize is this cute set of cupcake kitchen towels, a couple silicone spatulas one of which is emblazoned with cupcakes, and some cute pink cupcake napkins. Hooray for cupcakes.


The second prize is much less girly. It's some bacon and egg band aids, a finger shaped spatula, and some magnetic page holders so you can mark your recipes without slews of post it notes. I figure because I do have some male readers they might appreciate something not pink or semi-ruffly.


The third prize isn't pink, but it's sort of peach and semi-ruffly. It's also not finished. It will be an apron similar to my Christmas/winter apron shown below. It doesn't have the appliqued gingerbread men on it, but it's still very retro and totally cool. You could also check out my everyday apron (as modeled by my lovely mom). Don't worry, if we get the forecasted 10 inches of snow tonight I'll have plenty of time to finish it and I promise to post a photo as soon as it's done!
So there you go! Leave a comment! Let me know if you prefer one or the other prizes. And once again I will use the random number generator to pick the winners next Monday night. Good luck!

Yay for going out to eat! Here's to hoping you don't actually get 10 inches of snow, and here's also to hoping I win those bacon 'n' eggs bandages, because I they'd be HILARIOUS to hand out to all my freshmen who insist they need to go to the office for their boo boos!

I LOVE aprons and that fabric looks great! Happy Birthday, Mary. P.s. If I win, you can always send it to me on the sloooow boat and it won't cost too much. I'd even foot the shipping.

Meredith said...

All of those prizes are amazing - the batter finger is awesome, I love the cupcake towels, but if I could control the random number generator, I would push for the apron. Your Christmas one is fabulous and I can only imagine how adorable it will be in that fabric!
Fingers crossed!

My first job was working at Wendy's in like, 1979. Before salad bar. Before baked potatoes. Before chicken sandwiches. Just burgers (do you want 1, 2 or 3 patties?), fries, frosties, and pop. Oh, and chili.

But, that's it. Back when Wendy's was really, really good.

Hay girl. I'm in the same situation- living off a mix of junk food and the one healthy recipe I've made in the last few weeks. Here's to hoping we find the time to eat something real. And please please please draw my number for the awesome apron!
