And the Winner is...

So here I am, sitting at the hotel waiting for my house to be livable. Pretty much everything is moved into the house (minus a few boxes), there's basically nowhere to walk inside, but there are 2 big things keeping us from actually being in...I don't get my oven/stove until tomorrow and our water is not hooked up yet. Um...I must have my stove ;) . Anyway, here I am at the hotel in between loads of laundry (expensive laundry) and rounds of sandwiches when I remembered that I had to draw a winner for my Sea Salt giveaway!
First I pulled out my lucky hat (Go Spartans...Woo Hoo) and wrote everybody who left a comment w/ their choice of salt on little pieces of hotel paper.
I then put all of the little pieces of paper into my hat and my oldest kiddo did the honors. The winner is Jamie! Congratulations Jamie...please email me at girlichef [at] yahoo [dot] com with your shipping information. I will go to the Farmer's Market to pick up your sea salt and pinch bowl later this week once I've received your email.
And as anybody who has kiddos knows, when one gets to do something, the others want to follow suit. So, little sister and brother wanted to draw a name from the hat too. I decided to send out a couple of consolation prizes. I'm actually not sure what they are yet; I always realize how much stuff I have when I have to pack it all up to take somewhere else. So, Esme and Chef E...if you'd like some sort of foodie consolation prize sent your way, please email me with your shipping information and I will send something fun your way!
Congratulations to Jamie....and Esme & Chef E.
Thanks to everybody for taking the time to enter my giveaway. I hope to have another one sometime in the's so fun to give! Now it's off to see if our clothes are dry. I have one or two food post pictures saved up so that I can post some things during this transition period. Thanks for sticking with me :)
