And The Winner Is...

Okay, here we go with the winner...yeah, sorry you have to watch another video, but I wanted you to see that I really did draw a winner!

KATIE!!!! Can I just say how happy I am to be sending this to Katie? If Katie didn't win, I had already decided I was going to go buy her all this stuff and send it to her. Anything to bring a little ray of sunshine to this sweet gal. And she won anyway! (Truth be told, when I saw her entry I wanted to just shut the whole thing down and declare her the winner.)

So, Katie...I hope this brings you some joyful moments sipping some comfort in a cup! And I hope one day very, very soon you will have to share this with Ben! Know that this comes with a lot of love and our continued prayers! (You can hear Brad's cheer when your name was drawn, and our kids had the same reaction!)

And here is the link to Katie's blog where you read about her story. If you are reading this, please keep Ben & Katie in your prayers!!

And because I had so much fun reading YOURS, and I know you are so curious to read MINE, here is what my entry would look like. If I could enter my own contests. Which I can't. Bummer.

1. grande mocha with 1/2 the chocolate. decaf when I'm being good.

2. favorite thing about Fall: riding my bike over crunching leaves, football, chilly mornings, soup for dinner, anticipating Thanksgiving and Christmas, rain...

3. pie: chocolate pecan for sure. but I LOVE the variety and the excuse to make a big spread of desserts.

4. song: oh, so many. Silent Night, Sleigh Ride (harses, harses, harses), Christmas Cannon (I know, but I love it), So many, too many to list.

I love reading all your answers. Those of you who went all fancy on me and abbreviated your coffee presented quite the game for me to figure out what "DT" and "NF" and such really meant! Thanks for playing ~ let's do it again around Christmas time!


  1. Yea for Katie! Thanks for posting the link to her blog... I am excited to pray for these two even never having met them.

  2. WHOOHOO!! I have never won a blog giveaway!! I amm soooo excited! Thank you so much!!

  3. After reading Katie's blog, I can't think of anyone who would deserve it more. Congrats Katie and know I will be praying for you and your sweet husband. Keep the faith.

  4. I am so happy it was Katie. I read her blog and I can see why you would want her to win. Prayers are going up for both of them.

  5. Yippee for Katie! Im so glad she won! Things are lookin up for that gal! Thanks to our faithful God of course!
