Hope Rising giveaway WINNER!

Hello, friends! I'm still waterlogged after the deluge which fell upon Mesa this morning. Seriously, it rained so hard for so long that it began to flood. Literally. I stepped out of my car to walk Bubby up to school and ended up in water up to my ankles. And let me just tell you, since it rains practically never in Mesa, no one knew how to handle it. Myself included. Poor Bubby and her carpool buddy Bella were wading along to school under an umbrella along with the rest of the poor Arizona kids who have never seen rain. I only saw ONE pair of decent galoshes. However, I did see lots of flip flops. Lots.

And THEN! I still had to go to a dentist appointment after dropping the kids off, and the freeway ... oh my gosh, I thought I was going to die. I was hydroplaning all over the place and couldn't see but 10 feet in front of me. It was insanity. Also: PEOPLE. I know we almost never have to deal with precipitation but when it rains, especially when it's pouring, it's more than just a good idea to use your headlights. I counted 10 cars without their lights on. It was maddening. DO YOU WANT TO DIE?! Geez Louise.

Ok, now for some good news. The giveaway is over which means we have a winner! And the winner, randomly selected by Rafflecopter, is ...

Yay Katie! You won!

(Did I mention I met up with Katie in Washington D.C. last year? I did. Pictorial proof:

She's awesome! Stay dry, Arizonans, and have a fantastic weekend.


  1. The man in the picture who is not your husband looks eerily similar to old friends of our family. Is his name Sean and are they from Dallas per chance?

  2. Vickie -- nope, they are from the east coast.


I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
