Winner Winner Burt’s Bees Lip Balm

January 13th, 2009

Originally I was going to have Lucy pick the winner of the Burt’s Bees Lip Balm contest. I was going to hide numbered dog treats around the house and whichever one she found first was going to be the winner. But since she’s laid up and can’t roam around the house I had to come up with another plan. She was very disappointed she couldn’t help out.
I tried to think of a way to have the cats pick, but they’re cats. You can’t get them to do anything you want them to. So I reverted to the old, write numbers of pieces of paper, fold them up, put them in a hat and choose a winner.
I did put the numbers in my gardening hat at least, perfect for a gardening blog. And the winner is:
The winner is Carol from The Country Mouse.

This is what Carol says about herself: “I’m a mostly stay-at-home wife and mom living in rural Ohio with my wonderful husband and the sweetest baby boy in the world. I like to read, cook, eat (unfortunately), knit, and sing. I spend way too much time doing all of those things instead of mopping the floor.”

The funny thing is that I’ve known Carol since high school. She helped set my sister up with her cousin (who my sister married and is now my brother-in-law). Paul and Carol have the cutest little boy named Levi. Head on over to Carol’s blog and check out what’s going on at The Country Mouse.

    I can’t remember the blog but they had their bunny pick the winner. The first sheet of paper the bunny tried to eat was the winner :)

    The whole week I’ve been bribing Lucy with biscuits to pick my name and you didn’t let her do her duty? I’ve been robbed. I want my consolation prize now Susy.

    Yeah for Carol -I can pass along her prize if you’d like! :0)

    I watched little Levi tonight for her while she was at a function. He is a sweet boy and was very easy going. Orin was a little concerned that he slept in his crib though… hmmmm
