The Sweater

I apologize for posting this so late. The fact that so many people wanted the sweater made me have second thoughts about giving it away. I've been crying over my loss all afternoon (actually, I got sucked into helping out at an elementary school fundraiser today...details to follow!). So many of you are so deserving (I've been cracking up all week)...but I must go with the crowd on this one and award it to Becca. Plus, she's from North Carolina and I have a soft spot for the South. Congratulations! I hope you cherish this treasure forever...and maybe consider taking Ninny's suggestion of giving it away on your blog at some point as well. I want a chance to win it back!

Here is Becca's winning entry:

Dear Jana,
I should win your sweater because, being newly postpartum, I am currently a cup size FF. (Yeah. Double *F*.) I just can't seem to find a sweater that flatters my new figure, but I'm pretty sure--wearing this lovely fashion statement, with it's bells--people might be so enamored with what's *on* the sweater, they'd ignore the "good heaven's, they're the size of TEXAS" knockers *under* it. Bless you.

And here is her beautiful and well-written blog for your viewing pleasure:

Yay for Becca!!! We can understand your unwillingness to part with such a treasured item. We do know Becca will wear the sweater with grace, dignity & pride.

I'm almost glad my daughter's monitors started shrieking so that I had to get up to rouse her at this unholy hour of 3:46 am. It was worth it to see that the coveted prize is going to be alllll mine this year. (And my husband will be relieved, too. Now his Christmas shopping for me is done.)

Seriously, though, is it bad that I'm totally excited?

I'm so glad that you're excited!

where did the playdoh ornament post go? I was hoping to do it with my kids this weekend and was too lazy to write the instructions down. Am I blind, or did that post disappear?

Congrats, Becca! Enjoy that beautiful sweater!

Congrats.. I agree, only someone with Double F knockers should own such a hand-me-down beauty!!

A little jealous I didn't try for it! ;)
Wear it well Becca! Tee hee

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
