lovely Naphtali of Second Street Designs.)
And the giveaway winner is...
Comment #19: Super sweet Jennifer of Rising Above the Storm! I know Jennifer in "real life", so it is with confidence that I can say that I just know she'll look SUPER sweet in that apron! :)
On to the cheeky challenge: The Award for Culinary Courage.
This one was tough, because truly, truly...y'all really brought your A-game. From nearly serving an uncooked bird, tomato explosions of epic proportions, flaming paper towels while trying to impress the parents, a mashed potato recipe that consisted of a butter to potato ratio of 32: 1...and so much more...I was nearly in tears as I read through these this morning! So, it was with great difficulty that I finally chose a winner...drumroll please...
LizzieBeth! Tilaplia + firey pan? Check. 12-fire-alarm chain reaction + summoned fire department? Check. Loathing neighbors + front yard walk of shame? Triple check. LizzieBeth, I painted you some lovebirds (see above). I noticed your new blog banner, and all the invites for your upcoming nuptials feature simple and sweet lovebirds. If you loathe this, please do pawn it off as a gift at a wretched baby shower. Pretend you bought it on Etsy for the event. Truly, I'll never, ever know. :)
Thank you all so much for playing...I can't believe how many of you took time to share your adorably, messily, undomesticated moments. You're all too funny, too sweet and so real. I adore Blogland. :)
Jennifer and LizzieBeth, e-mail me with your address at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll ship your packages to you!
