I’m interrupting my MWF blogging schedule to announce some contest winners.
If I was really techy I would have figured out how to imbed some sound for a drumroll, but since I am not, feel feel to slap your desk in rhythm as you await in clichéd anticipation with baited breath on pins and needles.
The Annoying Husband Contest
This wasn’t really about how annoying husbands can be, but how wives get easily annoyed by making silly rules the husbands don’t understand and can’t seem to follow.
Like my rule about couch pillows being for decorative use only. Who wants one more thing to clean?
Anyhoo, Tandis won the contest for having the most annoying husband, or for being the best wife to see that her wonderful hubby is really trying to be a help and an encouragement.
Tandis’ contest entry said, “My husband is “juicing” to lose weight – how annoying is that?
When he juices – every single night – he sometimes lets the juicer get a little crazy and the cupboards and walls and ceiling end up with pieces of pulp plastered to them. ugh! When I remind him to wipe it off right away so it doesn’t stick/glue/stain the walls he laughs and says, “Wow, it got way up there??” As he stands gazing at where the pulp went. He is always impressed, like it was his goal all along!!! I tell ya… if I wasn’t rolling my eyes and holding back a laugh, I’d really be ticked. “
I included enough chocolate for Tandis to share with hubby to set back his dieting for a few days so he can juice more and decorate the ceiling even more.
If you want to read more of their exciting adventures with four daughters and assorted life adventures, she blogs at “Life as We SKI It.” No, they don’t ski, hubby comes from Polish ancestry. That’s why he’s called SKI.
The Memory Jar
The next contest also included chocolate and a good book. As part of the 2013 Launch Team for Tricia Goyer, I was given a free copy of the first book in her Seven Brides for Seven Bachelor’s Series to give away.
I’m not a huge Amish fan, but I found I could easily relate to Sarah in The Memory Jar. You can read my review here.
I rolled a dice for this one and Connie Mace was the winner. Connie is a gifted, inspirational writer who blogs at “Raise Your Eyes.”
Connie also wrote this adorable children’s book, “Top o’ the Mornin’ Mini Minnie!” that I’ll be reviewing in the future.
So, there ya’ go.
Thank you to all who entered. To those of you who read my blog but didn’t leave a comment for the contests, yes, I’m talking to you….maybe that ONE POUND CHOCOLATE bar might be enticing enough for you to step out of the blog shadows and enter my next giveaway…

oops, trying to fill out this box from my phone is obviously not going well 🙂 Anyway, thank you so much! I’ve been busy with grandkiddos and haven’t had time or energy to blog so it’s very gracious of you to include me.

Oh Mindy, thank you! I havn
Wow. I’m thrilled. I never win prizes!! Thanks 🙂
Thanks for the shout-out to my blog too.The husbandSKI has been out of town for two days and I don’t have to climb any chairs to wash juice stains off my ceiling which means I probably have time to blog. 🙂
So cute! I had outsiders vote, so it was all fair and square. 🙂
Enjoy all the free time you have on your hands now that you’re not cleaning up after Mr. JuiceSKI.
