100th post winner

the mom bomb has set the bar so high with her fun and interesting ways of picking contest winners, i really had to put my thinking cap on to come up with something equally as inventive.

i think you'll find i did quite well!

as a reminder, this is for all you kind folks who took the time to read my 100th post and make a comment. i really appreciated it.

here's what i did. i typed up all the names. printed them out. cut them up...

then i stuck them on miss 16's dart board!
see? now melinda, don't go getting all mad coz i put you on the bullseye. it really won't matter, as you're about to see (or not)...
"i can't see where i'm throwing!"
ooooooops!!!
"i'll have another go"
...some time later...

"oh for goodness sake, we could be here all night. give me a turn!"
'mum, you throw like a rehab'
(i'm guessing that's NOT complementary)

FINALLY!!!
the winner is GIGI!!!

GIGI is related (not sure how exactly) to amanda. amanda is turning 30 in october and she's the reason i'm flying halfway across the world to new york; to help her celebrate!!! YAY!!!

GIGI, please send me your address (via email) and i'll be sending you some buzz bar love.

lynette, don't cry. i've saved you a couple...

Oh My Gosh!!!
I've never won any thing!
Are you sure you want to mail it from way down under? I could wait till Oct. when you see Amanda and you can give it to her to bring to me. We only live about 2 miles apart. She's my little gardening friend that gave me all the wonderful squash. She's very good to me. I just love her and she is such a fun person to be around. Her father in law and my husband are 1st cousins. Her husband Josh and my oldest son Harrison are the same age adn grew up together and graduated together from H.School.

Very creative way to choose me with the dart board! Thanks again, so much!

That was a fun way to pick the winner, but really like you were gonna hit the bullseye- it was rigged against me-lol! Congrats Gigi- enjoy your loot.

Amanda said...

I can't believe it!! That was even better than if I had won myself!!! Congratulations Gigi! Those chocolates are going to be so GOOD!!
Scrappysue- I'm so excited that you are so excited about NY. Evertime I hear you talk about it I get even more excited. You're the best bloggy friend a girl could ever ask for!!

okay so all this cadbury chocolate talk is making me chocolate hungry (umm but for NZ Cadbury!) I would love to send you something one of these days, but I am thinking I want it to be something that comes from here (haha I could send you some MM or MME, since they are both here!) NO really, I am thinking a snack item or something. PS sandie ate all my minty egg things {hahaha sorry, forgot the name, plus she had some crazy nickname for them anyway, so that did not help my memory:)} So maybe someone could enlighten me on where to find Buzz Bars in Utah. Anyway, loved the dart thing. AND how do you stay so thin? I haev not read the post about the plunger but I freaking laughed my head off when I saw the title. I neeeeed to get to it. And I too read your 100th post. It was a fun read. I wish I would have thought about all that before my 100th post (yeah.. so the 10 people who read my blog could see, hahaha).
