I finally won something!

I read quite a few blogs in my spare time (or when I am bored at work), and it's amazing how many of them have giveaways. I guess companies donate their products for some free publicity. (Note to companies: feel free to send me free things anytime.) If the prize is remotely interesting I will usually enter. One of my favorite sites is the Pioneer Woman. She gives away incredible things like stand mixers, sets of dishes, ipads, and nice cameras, to name a few. Unfortunately, me and about fifty thousand (not exaggerating) other people are vying for these prizes. I still enter but never win a thing. Well, my persistence finally paid off and I won these adorable recipe cards!

I read this new online magazine called Southern Flourish (very fun, I highly recommend it) and they have been doing a string of giveaways for the holidays on their blog. I'm not sure how popular the magazine is yet but I think the key factor in my winning was a small pool of entries. Regardless, I can't wait to get my cards in the mail! I'm planning out recipes for them already! Kurt has promised me his 3 favorite pasta recipes to begin with :)

In other news, my holiday party whirlwind began last night when Kurt and I attended my office party at my boss's apartment down the street from our office. I don't know why I expected it to be lousy but it was actually a lot of fun. We had some good conversation and my boss made a delicious dinner. I had my fair share of prosecco (which is quickly becoming my favorite new drink) and Kurt had his first taste of pecan pie. We all got a nice Christmas bonus (although sadly not our full salary back) and had a lovely evening. Thanks, Kate and Hope!
