Lucky Winner of A Valentine's Wish by Betsy St. Amant

Okay, I admit it, I was too lazy on Valentine's Day to make ballots for each of the twenty-two entrants (number of comments at the time of drawing), so I had my youngest daughter pick a number from one to twenty-two. She picked sixteen, which makes Jessica Nelson the lucky winner!!

Jessica, I know you've won from this blog in the past, but I don't harvest addresses, so please do send me an email with your snail mail addy so I can send this book out to you. I hope you like it!

So, what all did you guys get for Valentine's Day from your sweetheart? Guess what my special guy got me? Don't be jealous now, but my wonderful hubby got me season one of Castle. Isn't that just the greatest gift for a writer? I love it, and since I'm one who falls asleep waaaay too early, I need these on DVD because I miss far too many episodes to sleep.

Blessings prayed for all and may the spirit of Valentine's Day live on all year long!

Surrendering to Him,

Eileen

Happy belated Valentine's Day, Eileen! My hubby forwent (is that a word?) the flowers and offered me a backrub instead. Oh, he knows me so well!

Terri Tiffany said...

Yay Jessica!!!! We didn't do gifts--just hung out together:)

Rebecca Nazar said...

I received earrings and a foot rub. So both ends of me were very appreciative. I should check out Castle.

What a thoughtful gift your husband got you! I like how he related it to something writerly. My husband purchased a one hundred dollar amazon gift card for me. I need to start composing a list of the books I want. WHich I love to do. =)

Breakfast foods in x-rated shapes, chocolate and a heart shaped pizza.

Yeah, Jessica!

My husband and I went to a nice dinner on Friday and then to B&N. He bought me The Help. That's my man!
Can't wait to start reading it.

Chocolates and a gift card for a dinner out. I always say, the best dinners are when someone else cooks!

Wishing you a little Valentine every day :)

I got a lemon squeezer! But I really wanted one and I thought it was such a funny gift.

To celebrate he made margaritas with fresh lime juice and I made him fudge.

I'm striking out in all of the contest wins these days! ;-) But at least I had a good Valentines day. Hubby got me roses, chocolates, and wine. He went all out! So I guess I'm not striking out on this end! :-)

Amy Tate said...

Happy Valentines Day to you too! And congrats to Jessica. My hubby and I enjoyed going to a Valentines/Anniversary party for my in-loves. They celebrated 45 years of marriage yesterday.

Congrats to Jessica, and bigtime husband points to your DH, Eileen! The first season of Castle is high up on my list of birthday wants. :)

Yay for Jessica!

That is a great gift!

A friend and I made fudge over the weekend. So good! I just had a chill day. It was a good one!

Congrats, Jessica!

My church gave the women tulips and a box of cookies. I love how the flowers brighten my kitchen. I'll plant the bulbs in the front yard. Maybe I'll have tulips coming up for Spring 2011.

Blessings,
Susan :)

P.S. I ate the whole box of cookies. Better get to the gym. LOL!

Jessica said...

This is too funny! Didn't I win the other Betsy Amant book from you too? LOL!
Thank you to your daughter. :-) I'll e-mail you. Feel free to harvest my address. We're cyber friends. :-)
