It’s time to announce the winner of my Escape & Enjoy Mega Giveaway!

12/15 Update: Deb and her husband have other plans, so they can not accept the prize.  With the help of my fabulous twitter followers, I’ve choosen another winner! Michelle O’Boyle, a cute little Texan I’m hoping will be able to swing airfare.  We’ll see….


Update:  Maria, unfortunately, can’t accept the prize.  She has important family business already planned that weekend.  Trying again…ALTERNATE WINNER chosen by Maria Pena: DEB PELLETIER!

The prize:
A 7 day stay in 2br/2ba condo at Red Wolf Lakeside Lodge!
With a rack rate of $429/night, this stay is valued at over $3000!

How I listed entrants:
My intake widget gave me a list of entries each day and each entrant recieved a number in the order it was received. A total of exactly 300 entries were recieved.

How I chose the winning entry:
My husband, each of my two daughters and I chose a number between 0 and 301. I added those four numbers and divided by 4.

My number:    16 (my favorite since I was a kid)
My DH’s #:   193
My DD1’s #:   17
My DD2’s #: 236

Total: 462/4 =115.5

I called the family for a tie-breaker; 115 or 116?  1 vote for 115 and 2 votes for 116…so…

The winner is:  MARIA PENA

If for some reason Maria is unable to claim the prize as stipulated in the giveaway rules and guidelines, we will choose another winner.

Thanks for playing everyone.

two vacations — and this time, east coasters won’t feel left out!
