Currently... And Giveaway Winners!

I promised a Starbucks card to the writer of the comment that landed on my favorite number... which happens to be seventeen! (Good detective work, Wisegirl!)

Ironically, that writer is my best school buddy (AT my school!) I am actually taking her to Starbucks, so the gift card was up for grabs.

I am all about fairness, so I decided on two alternatives!
First, the writers of comments number 16 and 18 will be celebrated since they are on either side of seventeen and are therefore closest (if you don't count fractions and decimals)
(Do you think test prep is destroying my brain?)

Then, just for kicks, I used the random number generator to select one more random number.
And that was number 29...

So Starbucks cards are on their way to...

Finally, what would a new month be without a chance to link up with Farley?  Seeing those "Currently" titles on my blog roll always makes my heart happy--and they remind me to change the page on my "real" calendar!

So, head on over to Farley's and check out the May Linky Party. And while you're there, link up and let everyone know what's going on in your life. We're waiting to hear about you! See you there!

  2. Bummer! I wanted to win! But I would take just a coffee date with you as a runner's up prize. No gift card necessary.
    My kids did not take part in state testing, but they are acting wildly in sympathy, I guess.
    Love your pageant title and your platform -- I whole-heartedly agree!!

  7. Hey! Thanks so much for the comment! I was a little shocked reading your currently when you said you wanted family life to be over. I thought things had gone bad for you and you were packing your bags and leaving your family??? Then I realized a second later that you meant teaching it. whew.
    And don't worry about the house! It is all working out. I will have to post about it. Love ya for taking care of me!

  8. YEA!!! The only thing better would be an actual coffee date with you! =)

    For some reason, I know it is May but my brain just didn't want to believe it was truly until I saw this month's currently.
