I realized today that I somehow neglected to post the winner for the Connect 4X4 game. I suppose I should have a good excuse, but work and PTO stuff blowing up combined with a lack of sleep just doesn't quite seem to cut it. I promise, this is VERY unlike me, so without further ado, below is the winner (and I promise to be more prompt in announcing this going forward!).
The lucky number from random.org was 29.
That makes independentmami the winner!
Congrats to her!
And on another note, Ringling Brothers Circus is coming to town. The new show is called Zing, Zang, Zoom, and I can't wait to go see it. It's coming to Chicago specifically (Nov 5 to 29) but is also touring the country stopping everywhere from Wilkes-Barre to Toledo to Detroit and more.
This show includes magic in addition to the standard circus fare with elephants and clowns and tigers. The wee ones have never been to the circus, and I haven't been in years. I can't wait.
And best of all, I have a special deal for you!
