And The Winners Are ...

The time has come to announce the winners of my two giveaways. The first, the $100 gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods, was chosen on the grounds of the most creative answer to the question: "What would you buy at Dick's Sporting Goods for $100, and why?" Well, my darlings, I have reached a verdict. The winner is ...


Shel, from Auntie Thesis, amazed me with an original poem explaining her answer. She definately won for most creative answer!

Upon the scale I stepped, I could not believe my eyes
The extra poundage came from my lack of exercise
With pants to tight to breathe and zippers threatening to quit
It’s time to buy some workout gear, some pants that actually fit
I’d head to Dick’s, gift card in hand, $100 to shop
Puma shoes, yoga slacks and a Nike layering top.
Looking good, no fear of sweat, I’d head off to the gym
And take the first steps towards my goal of looking fit and trim.

Congratulations, Shel! Dick's Sporting Goods will be contacting you soon with information on how to claim your prize.

As most of you know, another giveaway was going on at the same time as the $100 gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods. In order to win a pair of Current/Elliot Jeans, you were to become a follower and leave your name and email as a comment on the post. I chose the winner very fairly. I asked my sister to choose a number, to which she answered, "144". I then lined up all of the entries in alphabetical order and counted up and down the list until I reached 144. And the winner is ...

Anna SL!
