And The Winner Is…


In case you missed it, I recently hosted a cash giveaway to celebrate reaching 500 followers. It was my thank you gift to all you lovelies for reading and following my blog. Once again, thank you!

Excluding the family members I had to disqualify, there were 31 entries. That’s a lot better odds than you’ll get in Vegas!

I planned to pick an entry out of my hubby’s Red Sox hat, but writing everyone’s name down sounded like too much work. So I decided to simply ask my husband to pick a number between 1 and 31.

I thought he’d just spout a number, but instead he went to his computer. When I asked what he was doing, he told me he was going to pick the number using

He’s such a nerd! chose # 17. I counted down to the 17th person to enter and drum roll please…the winner is COWGIRL!

Congratulations Cowgirl – you won!!!

Cowgirl, an email follower, has been reading and supporting my blog almost from the beginning. I gave her the nickname, Cowgirl, after she told me about the impact a gorgeous steer at the Farm Sanctuary outside of LA had on her.

Interestingly, when she entered this giveaway, she told me that if she won she wanted me to donate the money to that same Farm Sanctuary. So, it looks like the Farm Sanctuary wins too! My husband will be writing them a check soon!

    Congrats Cowgirl and Farm Sanctuary, what a great use of the winnings 😀

  2. Wow! How exciting! Thanks, Celeste for hosting the contest and Paul for bankrolling it. 🙂

    I kind of feel like there is some karmic energy going on here, like coming full circle…with my sharing the affect my bovine boyfriend had on me, Celeste being touched enough by the story to start reconsidering leather shoes, Celeste nicknaming me Cowgirl, Celeste wanting to visit Farm Sanctuary but not yet getting to it with her busy schedule, and the cows calling her to visit through my winning. I’m usually not this hippy dippy, I swear! 🙂

    If anyone is lucky enough to have an animal sanctuary nearby, I highly recommend going. If not, Farm Sanctuary has some great videos. Here is one of my favorites. I watch it (or the Cows listening to Jazz video on YouTube) whenever I want a guaranteed smile:
