Winners! Babbling Brooke's BIG 2nd Birthday Giveaway!!

It's finally time to announce the very lucky winners of 
Babbling Brooke BIG 2nd Birthday Blogaversary Giveaway!!

All entries were printed out and numbered by hand (which I highly suggest NOT doing if you happen to be hosting a giveaway!).  I used Random.org to randomly select the winning numbers, and the first number chosen is the Grand Prize winner.  The second and third numbers selected are the Second and Third Prize winners.  I will be contacting all of the winners tomorrow (7/15); winners have 48 hours to respond.  If I do not hear from any of the winners, I will select a new winner.

This giveaway has been so much fun and I truly appreciate that all of you were here to celebrate it with me!  I adore my blog, so it has been fun celebrating its 2nd year in internet-existence.  Thank you all for joining in, and thank you so much for reading Babbling Brooke :)


And now, the Grand Prize winner!!
The Grand Prize winner of the 55 prizes is...

Jessica at Polished Lyrics!!
Congratulations, Jessica!!!
Random.org selected #296, which was Jessica's first entry.


The Second Prize winner is...
Nail Obsessed!!
Congratulations, Nail Obsessed!

The Third Prize winner is...
Kathy T!!
Congratulations, Kathy!

Again, I truly wish you all could have won.  I read so many kind comments on the giveaway entries, via email, on other blog comments, on Twitter, and on Facebook, and I sincerely appreciate your kindness.  You guys are so great!
I apologize for posting this a few minutes after midnight; it took longer than I expected to finish numbering all of the entries (and my computer was running at its typical barely-chugging-along speed).  All entries were copy and pasted into a Word document, then printed 4 pages per sheet, double sided, in order to conserve paper.  Thank you again to everyone who entered, and congratulations to the many winners.
I'll announce the Twitter & Facebook winners tomorrow!

Brooke said...

Thanks GiveMeFashionNow - I appreciate that you joined in!!

Laura, thank you so much :D You're always so sweet!

Brii, I'm so sorry. Unfortunately, a lot of people didn't win, which I feel terrible about - but it is inevitable with so many entries :( Best of luck next time!! We all win some, we lose some :)

Elizabeth, I'm so glad you enjoyed the day of prizes!! I love your upbeat spirit and I'm glad you had fun!! (PS: my Dad is still basking in the glory of being called "hot" ;) lol!).

Brooke said...

Cupcake, I am dreaming taking this to the post office!! lol. I'm going to try to cram the prizes into two flat rate box if possible, but I need to make sure everything is carefully wrapped too. Luckily, Kim at Overall Beauty is handling the shipment of the third prize, so I don't need to worry about shipping with that! Thanks for enjoying the day with us!!

Thanks so much, Zara! and congrats to you too!

Jessica said...
