~ my husband rocks! ~ Giveaway Winner!!!

How it all began . . .

It's Friday again, everybody!!! I'm so excited to reveal the winner of our uber-fabulous, first ever, My Husband Rocks/Austin & Katy's Anniversary Giveaway!

But before we get to that, I have to tell you more about my wonderful husband, Austin, and why he rocks!!!


Yesterday, I had a conversation with a co-worker that really excited me, and I could not wait to tell Austin about it, so as I was driving home for lunch I called his cell phone. I asked him if he had time to listen to my story, and he said yes, so I launch into a description of the conversation that could have inevitably taken up much of my hour-long lunch break. He listened and was excited with me, and about ten or fifteen minutes into the conversation he said, "I hate to go, honey, but I'm under a vanity, and I've got to finish plumbing in this sink."

!!!!! He had been working away, trying to be as quiet as possible, so that he could hear my silly story !!!! Do you see why I love this man!??!? :) He is so awesome!


And now, the moment we've all been waiting for . . . .


I added up all the points of all the entrants, and the total came to 501 . . .

I plugged that number into the Random Number Generator (it's fun if you imagine that echoing, lol!) . . .

And the magic number was . . .


I went back throuth my MHR Giveaway Roster . . .

Added again until I got to 203 . . .

And the winner is . . .




And honorable mentions have to go to Sarah Mae, Kay-Kay, and Kristi who played along the whole way through and earned the most "points" (41, 30, and 29 respectively)!

Thank you all for participating, and making it so much fun to be a part of My Husband Rocks! Fridays!!!

    Oh also, when you say "participated" in MHR this week - did that mean 9/26 or 10/3? I published mine 10/4 Saturday today so I guess that didn't count huh?
