Winner...Winner...Chicken Dinner of my Birthday Blog Candy...

Happy Sunday Peeps!!!!

I'll sling out the name of my Birthday Blog Candy first and then yadda yadda after:)

Here's the pic of the goods:

I used random.org to pick the winner:

Alice Wertz said...

love your delightful cards!! love the pops of purple in the second one!! thanks for the chance to win the yummies!!=)

Woot Woot Alice!!!! You all gotta love Alice and her fantabulous over the top coloring skills!!!! I can't wait to see what you do with your new yummies...especially the Printers tray!!!!

♥♥yadda yadda♥♥

Okay, let me give you a quick run down of things:) Last night my friends took me to thee most amazing restaurant called Spice Room. I love discovering magnificent places with the girls...although I'm sure that some of our convo's might make other diners blush, we always have a FUN time....for dessert we went to my friends house and had Lemon Tart from Macrina's...my absolute favorite! It is heavenly....you look at the thing and gain 5 pounds....

I have had such a wonderful bloggie birthday surprise...my buddie Yvonne Yam put together a surprise birthday party for me....little 'ole me...she got together some bloggie friends and they've posted birthday cards and wishes on their blog for me:)

Yvonne Cindy Dora Julie E Julie:):):) Karen B Lynnda Sherry Sparkle

Okay, I have to tell you that I feel like I'm living this absolutely wonderful sweet life...all of you are a part of that....not just the peeps that are a part of the fabulous birthday surprise but all of you that come visit me...that leave me sweet comments...that maybe just lurk but maybe I've inspired a smidge...that might just laugh at my silly jokes or my lingo....that might smile at a card that I posted...that will read stories that I post about my kidlets...my man....my friends...my momma...

I can go on and on and on about the whole dealio about blogging...what it has brought into my life...how I love to share my creativity...how I love it when other's share theirs...but you know what....when it comes down to it...it is the sisterhood {this is huge for me since I only have 2 older brothers}...the camaraderie....that my friends is priceless...I wish that I could meet each and every one of you in person...because that's the beauty of blogging...when you do get the opportunity to meet peeps IRL, it's as if you've been friends forever...Thank you for helping me celebrate my birthday...I do have to say that this has been thee best ever...thank YOU for being part of it....

You are such a beauty Amy! You also look about 21 in that pic, so at first I thought it must be a friend or something! lol
I am up for lemon tart any day, and will always choose lemon or lime dessert over anything else! It sounds like you had a wonderful time and I'm glad to hear it.

Aimes said...

Big woot, woot! to Alice - what a lucky gal she is!!!!
Secondly - OMG, I could scoff that Lemon Tart in one! LOL! Lemon Meringue Pie is my all time fave desert so this would be a very close second! Love that pic of you, good to see you've got good taste in knitwear like me (it's GREEN!!!) LOL!
Hugs,
Aimes
