And the winner is... (plus a confession)

(Sorry for the delay, SonB needed me, then my computer froze, and yeah. Fun times. Anyway, without further ado...)


The Random Number Generator has spoken, and the lucky winner is.....






FOKXXY!!!


*Tosses Confetti!* Woohoo!

Congrats on your win! However, you didn't specify what package you wanted, so please email me at sarablarson21 (at) gmail (dot) com to let me know which one you want and also include your mailing address please (even if you want the critique, because you still get some REAL Swedish chocolate!). Congratulations again!

Thank you all for entering and for spreading the word. I really appreciated it!

If FOKXXY doesn't respond by Wednesday November 10 by midnight, a new winner will be drawn and announced.

How is your Monday going? I've actually been cleaning this morning (I know! I'm probably more shocked than you are) and... well... okay, I'll confess. *looks surreptitiously to the left, then the right, and whispers* I've started putting up Christmas decorations.

Hey! Don't give me that look! We're not having Thanksgiving here, and last year we ended up having to move the day after Thanksgiving and I barely got to decorate for Christmas at all. I think I deserve a little bit longer to enjoy the season this year, right? (This is where you say "Yes!")

So, what's your guilty confession today?

Congratulations, FOKXXY! :-)

Hmmm...I don't have a guilty confession yet, so I guess I better work to get myself one! :-)

Woo hoo! Congrats fokxxy!

You're cleaning? Way to go Sara! I'm doing homework (well...I'm supposed to be doing homework. hee hee)

Congratulations to Fokxxy!

Good job on the cleaning. I can hardly make myself get out of bed for work on Mondays, let alone clean something. So confetti for yourself!

My son's birthday is Dec 6, so Christmas always starts after that in my house. And it comes down by New Years--short and sweet is my motto!

You're so cute! Good job on the cleaning!

Congratulations to Fokxxy!

Hmm my confession: I've worked less today than I should have, but revisions are on my mind rather than entering data.

Congrats to Foxxy!

I think it's a good idea about Christmas Decor. I'm thinking to put stuff up early this year too, just to make sure it gets up at all!

Ha! I love it. We spent ages going through the Christmas aisles at the store yesterday. It's such a fun time of year. I don't blame you one bit for putting up Christmas decorations early. I probably won't since I like a really clean house before they go up, and I likely won't get a chance to do that kind of cleaning until Thanksgiving when I'll force myself to stop writing. But I wish I could get them up early. Just seeing them puts me in a good mood. I love those little animated stuffed Christmas toys. They crack me up, dancing and singing carols.

Congrats to Fokxxy!! I don't think it's ever too early for Christmas decorations. Well, June might be a tad early. But not after Halloween especially if you aren't hosting Thanksgiving! I turned Christmas carols on this morning myself as I did some writing. Which is odd because you wouldn't think that cheerful Christmas music would go well with Dystopian writing. It worked though!

I'm sorry I missed your contest. Congrats to FOKXXY though! Thank you for your encouraging words on my blog!

My wife has already began the non-stop Christmas music and I know I'll be dragging down the bazillion boxes of decorations any day now. *sigh* But complain as I do...I LOVE it! :)

Jackee said...

Congrats to Fokxy! :o)

I love European chocolate--I think I devoured all the Belgium and Swiss chocolate my husband brought back month without even sharing with the kids. lol!

Great giveaway, Sarah!

FOKXXY said...

congrats FOKXXY

Janiel Miller said...

Awesome, Fokxxy! Have fun with it.

Guilty confession? We listen to Christmas music (at least in the car) starting in August. Not on purpose. Not on our schedule. It just happens. We get sick of the heat, and there's some gorgeously written and performed music out there. So, neener. We like it. :)

I want to decorate before Thanksgiving - we always go out of town for it - but my kidlets feel like Turkey-day gets a short shrift, and they want those decorations up until the last second. I'm going to sneak a few in there, though. (heh heh heh)

CONGRATS to Fokxxy!

I just took down Halloween, and we're not having Thanksgiving here this year either, so I voted to start putting up Christmas...Husband and Daughter outvoted me. So, we have fall leaves and various turkey and pilgrim/Indian decorations up. *sigh. Boring.

I haven't played any Christmas music...yet.
I love Christmas.✩♡✩

Love,
Lola
