I survived and I win!

Hi everyone! I just want to let you know that I did NOT get mauled by Girl Scouts and in fact had a wonderful time! It was a treat to be around hoards of excited young girls. Not to mention the Girl Scout cookies involved. Yum!!!

In other news, my friend Carolyn over at Autumnleavesjewelry was hosting a giveaway and this was the BEST kind! It's the kind where you can actually win based on merit as opposed to randomness. At least I know I have a better shot if I can sort of control my destiny. :D Care is participating in the Washington Post's Peep Diorama contest. She has been hinting about her diorama for weeks and showed a sneek peepk (he he he) the other day. Her contest involved telling her what scene from what movie was depicted and who the major players were in her scene as well as providing other information.

Well guess what? I WON and in large part due to my friend Jon and my husband! I had not seen the movie but Care gave great clues so I was able to figure out what the movie was. My movie buff friend helped me with some specifics and my husband checked to see if I'd given the right answer while I was out running errands. Well do you know I was wrong by ONE question and so Mr. Beads kept pursuing the right answers until I he found it and I WON! I'd like to thank my team for their help. It was clearly a group effort which as far as I can tell was not against the rules. Yay!!!!!!

And I'm uber excited that I'm going to get one of her fabulous Spinner Rings!!!

Have a fantastic weekend!
