And the winner is.....

Ok, friends....first of all...seriously...DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD THIS WAS??? I went through every comment and read every last one of them and laughed ALL OVER AGAIN! Y'all are some mighty clever and witty people, I tell ya.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about....on Wednesday, I had a fun little contest here on the ole blog. You were asked to tell us what your word verification was, how it was pronounced, and then use it in a sentence. And, I loved every minute of it. Loved, loved, loved the fun!

Also, I need you to know that I would give EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU a giftcard from Starbucks if I could. But, I can't. So, I had to pick.

And, if you need to share some "shock and awe" with the winner, please go do so on her blog. I just picked the one that truly made me LAUGH OUT LOUD.

Thanks for playing along...we'll do something else quirky in the near future. And, I seriously need longer arms or a tripod for video taping. I stink at this.
Love y'all!

I have to say that my favorite part of this video is the 8 seconds of sheer Fran loveliness of seeing just your nose and mouth at 1:52!! :)

This was so much fun. I think this is the first time I've heard your voice and it just makes you that much sweeter to me!!!

Come to Nashville and let's hang, girl!! We could even go find us a pony or two to ride...whether it is a girl pony or a boy pony only the ponies will tell us for sure!!! :)

This was SO MUCH FUN and I think it should be an every month thing -- quick...someone design a button!!!

Love ya, girl!!

Congrats, Teri! That was a good one!

Fran -- you are just a hoot!! And it was so fun to hear you and to see you -- I, too, loved the nose and mouth portion. And Ponis killed me when I read it!! Girl, this was the best thing!! Can you make it a regular feature!! Heck, don't give anything away, just have the comments. I loved them!
