Somehow I let yesterday get away from me and I never drew the names for my little giveaway. How dare life get in the way of the blog, right?
Oh, how I kid.
This evening I looked at Random.org to try and figure out how to do a drawing like some fancy high tech bloggy people. Eh. Pretty nifty I guess, but I am more tactile, more old-fashioned. For me, part of the giveaway fun is to write out the names on paper, play with scissors and enlist help from small children in order to choose a winner.
MM and Rochelle because they are each the lucky winners of a Sonic gift card! Thanks to everyone that left a comment and played along!
I wanted to have a picture of me getting the Sonic gift cards today, timing it just right so Annelise and I could partake of Happy Hour at the same time, but that didn't happen. After schlepping through HEB forstinkingEVER this afternoon I was already tasting my Diet Coke with lime.
After weaving up and down the aisles, choosing this over that, inwardly moaning over not being a coupon shopper, outwardly saying, "No, we're not buying (insert random child targeted item) today" 25X, filling my cart with things that weren't on my list because I was hungry, giving in to a PEZ dispenser, trying to decide which toothpaste actually will live up to its claims, I approached the checkout line feeling like my brain had turned into mashed potatoes somewhere back in produce.
After loading the car, unloading at home, clearing out old stuff to make room for new stuff, washing and cutting fruit and veggies while I was on a roll, I somehow missed the window for Happy Hour. Rats.
You know what? After buying all those groceries today do you think we ate at home tonight? Nope.
