AND THE WINNER IS....

Thanks to all of you that left comments and entered my little Ped Egg give away.

I was surprised to hear from so many.

I did not expect such a huge response.

I should have known if the word FREE was uttered you would come!

It has been so much fun that I may just have to do another one when I stumble across another great product.

Chad gave me his permission.

His only stipulation was that the next product I fall in love with could not be a 52" Plasma screen television.

He is stingy like that.

I assured him that would not interest me or my readers.

Lip gloss and Ped eggs were much more appealing.

Anyway, the point is I intend to do this again.

I enjoyed all the name calling and "I deserve it more than her" crap.

It made my day!

When you practically hijacked my blog... now that was another story.

I couldn't believe you girls started writing each other notes and threats via my blog.

That was just not right.

I mean get your own Gmail account...please!

Seriously, it was entertaining.

I laughed and kept score right along with you.

I thought that each of you had some valid points.

The pregnancy card was used more than once.

The dry Utah air card was used.

The "I stand on my feet and teach America's future" crap line was used.

Someone even offered her children to babysit in exchange for an "egg".

I had to think long and hard about that one.

I heard all kinds of poor, sob stories about your tired, nasty, ugly feet.

Okay... so you ALL deserve one.

Only... I can't afford to do that.

So you will just have to applaud the winner and try to be big about it.

To be fair, I wrote each name on a slip of paper.





I folded them up.

My kids placed them in some sort of "Pimp Daddy" hat.



The hat was shaken.

Cole put his hand in and drew the lucky winner.






I took the first picture. It just looks white.

SEE.









I took one more photo.

If you squint really hard you can read it.






Good luck with that.

Congratulations! Please email me your mailing address and the winning "egg" will be mailed promptly.









Okay...okay... the winner is....




JAZ!

I honestly couldn't be happier.

I did not know how happy until I began to type.

It is hard to type when my "face is raining".

Cole says that.

I can't end here without a few words about our winner.

Jaz is one of my favorite people.

She babysat my kids.

She lived in NC.

She moved and we all miss her.

Please let me share with you why this sweet girl moved her family of four to another state.

Away from her family of like 10,000. (I am not kidding!)

Her sister-in-law was killed in a tragic car accident last year.

She left behind a husband and two babies.

Jaz and her husband couldn't bear the thought of them being alone and without a mommy.

They packed up their things and moved in with her brother-in-law.

Jaz went from being a mommy of two precious children to a mommy of four almost overnight.

What a kind act of selflessness.

What an incredible woman.

The world needs more "Jaz" in it.

Don't you agree?

I would give you all the link to Jaz and you could congratulate her yourself, but she went all "PRIVATE" on us.

Just leave your comments to her on my blog.

She can read them here.

I promise I will not complain at all if my comment section is hijacked again.

Congratulations Jaz!!!

I can't think of a more deserving winner!

- Brooks & Jaz - said...

WENDI!!
I love you so much! Thanks for making my face rain as well! Maybe I can stop the rain from falling...

I'm a little overwhelmed at the moment - I hardly know what to say...

Oh, I know!

My address is:
582 S Barnstable
Nixa MO, 65714
((feel free to delete))

I'd like to thank all the CUTE little people that helped me win...((thanks for pulling my name out of the hat!))...they are my favorite kids to watch!

I'd like to thank my mother for the example of dry feet she has given to me. She's been the greatest!

I would feel terrible if I didn't thank all of the producers of the blog for making this possible - without you, there would be no blog - therefore, no blog contest to enter.

I cannot leave without thanking the BIG GUY! Now, without HIM I know that none of this would exsist. Without HIM Wendi would not have been so inspired to go shopping for such a product to send to a desperate sister in need.




That's right, THANK YOU CHAD!

So in closing of my acceptance speech:

I accept. I am grateful. I am so excited. I am going to blog before and after pictures of my feet! I love you Wendi!

...jaz...

Ok, so Wendi, where can I buy one of these little miracles??

Wendi said...

Kristen,
You can find a Ped Egg at your local Target, or Walgreens. I am sure there are other places I just do not know where.
QVC has them and I have seen them in a couple of magazines. I will be on the look out and send you some links... just go get one...or two! Thanks!
