And the winner is ...

I am so excited about announcing the winners of the Target gift cards!

Wait. Did I say "winners" and "gift cards"?

OH YES I DID. Now, don't get too excited. But this is my blog and I make the rules. It's a hobby, not a business, and this was a self-sponsored giveaway. Therefore, when I thought about how many people voted for the $20 gift card, too, because they wanted a better chance of winning, I couldn't resist adding a couple of those into the mix.

SO. The good news is that the first "traditional winner" wins the $100 Target gift card on a purely random basis, as planned. Congratulations to:



Amy at Wade's World! I don't know Amy personally, but she has been reading for a long time, so I'm thrilled that she won.

And Winner #2 ($20 gift card) is the person who Commented most often in September. Congratulations to:


Paige at Life is a Phoenix! Paige is an IRL friend who Commented an astonishing 14 times in September. THAT'S some dedicated Commenting since we are not even related. And yes, Paigie, I'm happy to send it to your mom! And not that it matters, but coincidentally, Paige was Comment #64, so she just missed the grand prize by a HAIR.

And Winner $3 ($20 gift card) is the person who Commented second-most often in September! Congratulations to:



Rachel at Mom of Three ... And More! Rachel has been Commenting regularly for a long time, but I don't know her personally. She just always puts a smile on my face with her Comments, and I appreciate it so much. Rachel Commented 12 times in September, edging out Beckie (9) and Kerin (7), who were the next people in line. I don't know Beckie or Kerin in real life, either, but that's one of the things that makes blogging so neat.

You all know how much I enjoy your Comments, and it means a lot to me that you take the time to do it. Thank you, all, for making blogging something I LIKE to do as opposed to feeling like it's just another item on my To Do List (at least most of the time). You guys are the best! (Winners, please e-mail your full names and addresses to stainsofgrass at yahoo dot com so I can mail your gift cards to you.)

And also, today is our 15th wedding anniversary. So Happy Anniversary to Grayson! Thank you for 15 wonderful years, and here's to at least three 50 more!

Happy Anniversary! May you have many, many more. Congratulations to the winners of the gift cards. Kat has been so generous that I hope the winners will do something generous themselves with whatever they purchase. I have been keeping vigil at my mother's hospital bedside for several days, so I have some catching up to do in my blog reading.
