NOT the WINNER IS, the WINNERS ARE! How could I stop at one on such a MONUMENTAL NIGHT!
It took me awhile to go through all the entries and find just SAINTS entries and then give each the right number of entries. The I had to wait on my main man, Parker, to draw. He had hurt his toe over the weekend. It began to hurt so bad at school (probably his shoes) that he had to come home and have it checked out by the doctor. Not broken, but he has this funny shoe he has to wear. It has been a rainy and very dreary day here...Baby Jack is still home sick. Amanda and I both feeling like we might be getting sick. I am SO ready for the sick season to be over. So sorry it has taken me all day to get this done. I so wish that everyone could have won.
the 2 runner ups are, or the second draws as Parker would say are Thoughts of a Bama Belle and Gloria @ Happy To Be !
As soon as I receive your mailing address, your package will be on the way....Congratulations.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE SAINTS. The more I read about Drew Bree's, the more I see what a class act he is. And he had his GAME on yesterday. What a precious picture. Talk about touching my heart.

There were 13 entries that could have been winners. I plan to list all those blogs over the next few weeks so you can visit them. The other 10 bloggers will automatically get 5 entries each in the first anniversary prize that I give next week. Some of them I know, others are new to me. I love connecting PEOPLE to PEOPLE. So be looking for a post on SATURDAY or SUNDAY starting the 2 weeks of gifts and more gifts...I want to bless as many people as possible. You have sure blessed me. FEBRUARY 14th will be my ONE YEAR BLOG ANNIVERSARY.

I had hoped to have a new design up by then, but I still cannot decide for sure what look I want. I have narrowed it down to 50 or 60. I can hardly believe that it has been a year. I well remember the long debate with myself about whether I had time to blog, had anything to write about and had anyone that would ever read it. February 14th will begin 2 weeks that will be full of fun and prizes in appreciation for all my NEW FRIENDS and even followers (though I don't really get that...How could 444 plus be following me? and where?) Regardless, I am VERY THANKFUL. This will be my 118th post and I have another blog that has 60 posts on it. So that means within one year I have written 178 posts, with lots of pictures...and I have over 700 followers on the two blogs...For a girl that was not sure, blogging has taken me by storm and shock.

I am still amazed everyday. I have made so many new friends...Friends I am absolutely sure I would know if I ran into them in the mall. I have been blessed more than you can know, I have been touched, I have been moved to tears many times, I have been amused, I have been moved to help someone, I have been moved to pray, I have been admonished and spurred on to make better decisions. There are still so many things I cannot do, blog wise and some that I do in such a weird way that what takes me 2 hours, you could do in 10 minutes. I am embarrassed to even tell them. How I wish I could find someone to give me a one day blog course and teach me all the neat things that most of you do. But until I find that person, I will struggle along!

My favorite part of The Super Bowl was the end and the picture of D. Brees with his son....that is love!

I have loved getting to know you through your blog and especially your Christmas blog. What a wonderful lady you are. Your love for your family is contagious!

Congratulations to your winners:-) I didn't participate because I don't watch football and had NO idea who the teams were!! lol

I, for one, am SOOOO very glad that you started blogging and that we became connected, it's always such a joy to read your posts. You shouldn't be surprised that you have so many followers:-) It will be 4 years in March that I've been blogging and it still never ceases to amaze me the wonderful friendships I've made and will make in the future.

Hope your day is going beautifully, my friend. xoxo

You are such a giver and an encourager. Has it been a year already? Time truly flies. I still have the same super-simple blog design after 2 years... oh my. It'll be fun to see what you do. Maybe I'll get with the program. ; )

Congratulations to the Saints. My husband and I don't really care for sports but we did watch the game with our son and daughter-in-law, ate pizza and cheered....for BOTH teams. We had decided that we'd be happy without whichever team won and we were! And, I love visitors and comments too!

Just a little something from Judy said...

You have a beautiful and informative blog. I enjoy every visit here and I am thankful that you started blogging a year ago. You certainly have some adorable grandchildren that you share with us. Keep it up!
