Screwed It Up Without Even Trying

Hey, remember that giveaway I had? And there was like, all these comments and entries and stuff? Yeah, that was cool.

Then I announced the winners. I wrote out all the name and took lots of pictures with the littles drawing the names and such. Seems easy enough, right? Write down name. Fold paper. Put paper in box. Take picture of name chosen. Foolproof.

So I guess I'm better than your ordinary fool because I screwed it up.

The big prize? The gift card? Apparently it was won by someone who didn't enter. Mary was kind enough to point out this fact after I had announced her Big! Win! Sure, she follows my blog but she's had her hands full lately and hasn't been making the rounds, so she missed the contest.

The winner of the gift card was this Mary. Completely different - but I'm sure just as nice.

So congrats to the real Mary (and please email me your address so I can mail your prize to the right place).

Wow! I am impressed with your Valentine's Day food! I had a whole heart themed menu planned, but ended up spending the day in the ER. It was awesome.

Oh, and anyone could have messed up the drawing! :)

Don't feel bad! We all have days that we can't figure out what the heck happened.

You had a great giveaway and it's all worked out now. ((hugs))

I am sorry, I laughed. You can blame the baby for all this kind of forgetful stuff until she is 1 year old.

I totally understand. According to my post today, my brain was turned off yesterday myself.

Wow Mary is one honest lady. I am going over to meet her right now!!

Visiting from SITS! {WAVING}

That's funny! You're a bigger woman for me for even hosting a giveaway. Even if I had something to give away, I wouldn't have a clue how to count the ones of entries.

Sorry but I am sort of laughing. More because that would be something I would have done. Mary mary quite contrary.

It's all good Jessica.

Mary said...

I still love your blog!!! And congrats to the rightful winner!!!!!!!!

Mary said...

COOOOOOOOOOOOL! Thanks! And Thanks "Other Mary"!

Ok, just so you know I screwed up too. I entered, forgot I entered, thought it was cute that another Mary won and thought to myself... too bad I didn't enter... duh, I did! LOL

I hope you are as amused by the lingering effects of preggo-brain.

So, did I win the off-centered autographed picture of you or the pretty red toe jam? Oh just surprise me!

I can't help but laugh..Sorry!!

These sorts of things happen to the best of us! Kudos to Mary for being honest!
