awaiting 'the storm' and a winner

Dr. Chick has been tending the fire {that is our actual fire} since about 3:00 this afternoon as we await the big storm.  Schools in our area were called off yesterday morning in anticipation of the winter event.  I did my usual Sunday afternoon grocery shopping however, the rest of my town also decided they need to grocery shop.  It was Crazy, with a capital C.  The buggy corral was empty when I entered.  I had to round up my buggy from a sweet lady returning hers from the parking lot.  I pink puffy heart the south.  Seriously y'all...love it.  However, living in the frozen tundra Iowa gives one a little perspective on winter weather and while we've done our due preparations I can't help but wonder if this storm is going to be all they predict.

This is WAY over due.  I promised it Friday and didn't deliver.  My sincerest apologies however, I'll make it up to you.  Pinkie swear.  I was overwhelmed by the response to the new Monogrammed Straw Tumblers and am so glad that y'all like them!  Without further yammering (as Kiki would say) the winner is

Thanks to everyone who entered and to all of those that told your friends!  There will be more giveaways coming soon.  In the meantime use the code MCBLOG to receive 10% off your Personalized Straw Tumbler through the end of January.

**Dr. Chick just came in with sleet!

Oh wow I've never seen a hand full of sleet like that! We aren't receiving any kind of winter precipitation in our neck of the woods yet...anxiously awaiting! Stay warm, that fire looks cozy!

Now you know we have to shut everything down if we get one inch of snow. :-) I'm sure the North would get a great laugh from our snow prep before we have even seen one flake. Have a great day tomorrow. Xoxo
