A Couple of Winners

Well, today is the day.  I want to thank all of you for the
sweet birthday wishes over the last few days.
(That's me - 32 years strong!)

It was so fun to hear about all of the cool gifts you guys have given and received over the years.  Thanks for sharing all of those memories with me.  I really enjoyed reading all of your comments.

Well, do you want to know who the winner is of my "Goodie Bag Giveaway"?

That's my sister Cassie, who said:  "Oh yeah...I'm feeling good about this entry...;)  The best gift I ever received was my Lacasse cowboy boots. They are hot.  Happy early birthday, Sis!"

You rock those boots, Cass!

So I'm excited for Cassie, but feeling a little bad that it was someone so closely related to me (I swear, I didn't cheat) so I'm going to give away one more prize.  This will be a set of my first 3 patterns as well as a couple other goodies.

I was surprised when I clicked on Jodi's name to see that she lives in the same city as me.  It's not that big of a town, but I don't think we've ever met.  It's a crazy, small world out there...  Anyways, I love that idea, Jodi, and want to try that sometime with my kids' cakes.  They'll love it.  Thanks again, everyone, for sharing! 

Today, I'm off to lunch with friends, an afternoon/evening out with my husband and kids and then a quilt guild meeting tonight.  It's going to be a great day! 
P.S.  Thanks to all of you who offered ideas for the new quilt guild I joined.  I'm taking a list of your comments to our meeting tonight and we'll decide on some new ideas to implement.

P.P.S.  Just a little useless information for ya - that birthday giveaway post was #200!!!  Can you believe that?  Thanks everyone for following along.  If you ever have any questions or topics you want me to discuss, let me know.  I love your input! 

P.P.S.S. (- duh, I don't know what that is) A Little Bit Biased is now 300 followers strong!  Crazy huh?  You guys are awesome!  Thanks for making this fun and actually thinking some of my stuff is decent :)

P.P.S.S.P. :) Have you tried Costco's red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting?  Can I just say, YUM?

Have a great June 15th.  I know I will!

Congratulations to the winners and thanks Amber for the giveaway. Great fun reading the posts and often emotional. It was a wonderful idea. Oh and congratulations on 200 posts AND 300 er...301 followers today, LOL!

I'm dying with laughter that I won the birthday giveaway! I never win anything, and I'm fairly new to the area. I discovered your darling blog after discovering Just Sew. Anyway, let me know how to "claim" my prize. (I'm also new to quilting so I really need some patterns.) Wahoo!

Well I've been crazy at my house with family stuff so I missed your birthday. But belated wishes. You're a beautiful girl with your whole life ahead of you. Love everyone and don't be hard on yourself. That is my life advice for you. Not that I do that, but that is wish I would have done and continued to do at your age.
