And the Winner is...

Now I know you have just been sitting on the edge of your seats couches all weekend waiting for Kelley and I to post the announcement of the winner.

Because neither of us is 1. particularly tech-savvy, 2. both of our first giveaway, and 3. we did it over two different blogs, we decided an old fashioned-draw-one-out-of-the-hat method would work for us! I hope that is okay with you.

And I even took pictures to document the happenings.

First, I wrote all 13 names on to a piece of paper (let me just tell you it is a good thing we didn't have 873 entries because it would have taken me all weekend just to do that!). And then I went through and tore each name entry into a scrap of paper and folded them all down so the names could not be read.

I asked Mr. Ruggedly Handsome for a hat. At first he was reluctant to let me borrow one of his caps. Actually, at first he thought I was asking for beanie for an unknown purpose. After we clarified that I wanted a ball cap, he pulled out the selection and I chose one. Then he realized what I meant to do with the caps was to put the names in the cap and pull one out for the blog giveaway! So he took back the nice USC cap I had chosen and handed me the rival cap of Notre Dame. (You see, the Notre Dame cap is fitted and the USC is not, so in the shaking process, no names would fall out the side hole).

So I put all the names in the fitted Notre Dame cap and did a couple of shakes, but let Mr. Ruggedly have the honor of drawing the winner.

So congratulations to:

Oh, you say you can't read that, because Katie, you can't take pictures very well?
Well... it says Callie!

Callie, we hope you and your husband enjoy the hot cocoa with marshmallows! And maybe it will warm you up if you are blogging in the basement!
(If you will email me with your address at katiebethblog at gmail dot com, Kelley will send you the goodness).

Thanks to everyone for participating! Merriest Christmas to you and yours!
