Winner and The Mad Hatter Tea Party

Hi All!!!!!!
Happy Friday! FINALLY!! OMG, I am thrilled to pieces its the weekend, but I still have a lot to do- so no chance for me to relax until Sunday anyway.

Stay tuned because at the end of the post I will announce the winner of the Comforts of Fall Giveaway... so get excited!

Yesterday was our company Halloween party here at work. It's mostly for the kids, we set up "scenes" and do games and have prizes, pizza, and TONS of candy. Olivia has been coming every year since she was a baby- even though I only started working here when she was three- my friend used to work here and brought her as a special treat! So when I started working here she was excited the HW party tradition could continue on! I was too, because it's lots of fun.

I could show you what last years party looked like- but I lost all those pics. Bastards!

So instead you will see this years! Not many pics because my camera is still on its last leg till my new charger comes in.

I had a Mad Hatter tea party with Princess Jasmine and the Hawaiian girls.

Here is Princess Jasmine telling my co-worker all about her princess adventures and duties..

She got lost in the "Balloon Room"- that is the favorite among all the kids.. I wish I were little enough to get in there and jump around- but it's not a good idea to squash a bunch of 4 and 5 year olds in front of their parents..

So now it's time to announce the winner of the giveaway! First of all I loved hearing about who you guys admire and lean on when things are going rough. I had Carlos laughing yesterday because he was telling me how happy he was that I was on his side all the time, I said, "Yea, it's Team Charlie right over here baby"- so this morning when he called me, he called me Captain. I'm sensing that I am getting a new nickname..ha!
It seems like alot of us seek inspiration in blogs that we read and I find that is the coolest thing ever! I think blogs are motivating for me too- I get the motivation to do more in my workouts and try new recipes and new foods.. so happy I got involved in the blogging world.

Ok, OK now you are all saying, Amy, shut the F up and tell us who won!

I just actually picked the winner. There were 25 entries so I yelled over my cube, "Joe pick a number between one and 25". I figured that would be my best bet.. and JOE my co-worker picked #17... sooooooooooo

jperonto is the winner!!!!!!!!! I wish I could share something about "Jperento" but I don't think she is a blogger..

So, J, email me your address and contact info so I can get that over to you ASAP!

Thanks to all who entered in the contest!!!! Have a great weekend and have a SAFE HALLOWEEN!!!


  1. Those pics are so cute! I love the balloon room--I'd love to get in on that too lol...

    I'm glad you were able to talk to Carlos. Hopefully he's hanging in the best he can. Sending good thoughts to both of you.

  2. OMG I won! Thank you soooo much!

  3. Oh my gosh. I am so retarded, but I cannot find your e-mail address on the blog! Where might I find it? (I apologize! I'm newer to the food blog scene)

    Thanks so much again!

  4. Sigh...I wish I were a kid now...playing with them...sounds like so much fun!
