the lucky winner

Wow! Thank you all for taking the time to tell us about your lovely weekend plans... There were definitely some repeated themes: sleeping in, spending time with loved ones, good food, a little exploring, and some creative me time. I second all of those!

We had a close-to-perfect Saturday here. Pancakes at home, then off to the Wild Animal Park to see the new baby elephant (born just one day before), meeting up with old friends for dinner, and driving home late with the kids asleep in the back.

Such a sweet sight.. the baby was still figuring out how to balance and would stand up and then topple over. His mama, being the good mom she is, would reach her trunk out and pick him up and help him get his footing, over and over again.

The only thing that could have made this any cuter was if the baby elephant hooked his little trunk to his mother's tail and they broke into song as they marched off.

The giveaway: We used some UNO cards to help us pick a random number since there was no fair way to choose the "best" weekend. Three rows of cards, one for each of the three possible digits. We shuffled each row and my helpers and I each picked a number.

And the winner is:

Congrats to Amy who loves spending weekends having breakfast with her family, play time outside, leisurely naps with her 11 month old, and a movie at home. Happy sewing Amy!!

I can only imagine how cute that little elephant must have been! How sweet to see that. My little one is getting to that point of almost walking, love those first Frankenstein steps!

That's me! I'm so excited about this book. I love the way you selected the winner, and that elephant picture is just the cutest. I think we may have to incorporate a zoo trip soon ourselves. Thanks again!

How adorable!

I have been following your blog for awhile now, along with so many other lovely ones. I had no idea you were out here in San Diego; seems there just aren't many San Diego bloggers, so now I'm even more pleased to keep up with your goings-on.

A trip to the WAP to see the little one might well be in order, and am hoping to get to Anza Borrego to see the wildflowers in full bloom, too!

Greetings from a fellow blogger (my blog is www.foziewisp.blogspot.com; comment box won't let me enter it for some reason) in San Diego! I also had no idea you were out here; I'm a lurker who de-lurked for a chance to win Heather Ross's fab book, and the pix of the baby elephant at the Wild Animal Park...wow.
