And then there was a winner.

So...a funny story about this giveaway.

Today I sat down with my mini legal pad and took a tally of all those that entered my giveaway contest. And I have to say, I have been beyond pleased with the outcome. Like, for reals. Every single one of you that entered are beyond amazing and I want to thank you all for not only taking the time to enter, but to share your favorite memories with me. They are truly touching.

Well, once I got the tally, I went about making little slips of paper with everyone's name on them. I was going to use a random number generator, but because I got crazy with the extra entries, I just didn't think that would be very fair for some reason. So, I reverted back to my childhood with door prizes and decided that pulling a name out of a hat was not only going to be more productive, but incredibly fun.

And you know what? It was! :D

So I made slips for every entry (including the extra ones) and threw them all in my roommate's lime green straw cowboy hat. The epicness just never ends.

Now, here's the part that I got back a bit and explain something. For those of you that do not know me...well, I can't spell very well. In fact, I'm pretty rubbish at it. In fact, just a few days ago a close friend of mine was picking at me about it over facebook. But I digress.

As I was writing the names on the slips of paper, I looked down every now and then and would see some extra letters here and there. The only thing I could think of was "Oh, Geeze, I hope that this isn't the one I pull because I will take a picture of it and then the entire world will have more proof of the fact that I can't spell!!"

The universe loves having me as its little play thing.

Yup...You're reading that right. I pulled one of the names that I misspelled. To quote one of my best friends "This is my life. This is my life every time."

Anyways! CONGRATS MISTRESS ZOMBIE! :D You are the winner of the Pink Giveaway! I am super excited for you and I shall be contacting you soon for your address.

THANK YOU AGAIN for everyone that entered the contest. I hope you stick around because there is lots more fun things to see and that will be up for grabs later.
