I simply can't believe it!!!!!

I just had to tell you this!!!

I checked Jimmy Moore's blog today to see if I'd won a prize in his 2nd Annual Blog Anniversary giveaway. Last year I won some ChocoPerfection bars, which are awesome by the way. I was hoping for a win of some kind - the CarbWars cookbook, which I've put off buying until after the contest, Fiberfit and books from Karen Rysavy (I already have all her books, but have never splurged for her sweetener). I'd have honestly been happy with any prize. I'm scanning down the page and seeing a lot of names, none of which are mine, but I'm happy for them none-the-less.

Now, imagine me sitting in the computer chair and nearing the end of the list. I do not see my name in any of the prize bundles. I'm disappointed, but you can't win them all. So I scroll down one more space to see who won the VCS4007 Gas Grill.... and it was ME!!!! I almost jumped out of my seat with excitement!!! I am on cloud nine and can't wait to cook on this bad boy! How awesome is this?!?! I've never won any major prize in my life. I rarely win the little stuff, ya know? So this has totally made my day!!

You can bet I'll be sharing new recipes from the grill this summer. :0)

Ya know Cindy, I really wish I could throw a big low-carb bbq bash and invite all of you. I'd do it in a heartbeat! I really think we ought to organize some kind of low-carb get together once a year.. wouldn't that be awesome?

Congrats, Sparky's Girl! (I posted a comment right after yours on Jimmy's blog post.)

Glad to see a fellow low-carber here in St. Louis. Keep up the great start, and enjoy that grill!

Congrats---that is so awesome--

I too am looking forward to some great grill recipes---I've got some to share too.

As for the low carb get together---they are starting the Atkins cruises back---how cool is that..

this was a great contest--I won a case of Fuze---

Congrats on winning the Fuze Bama! I've never tried it so you'll have to tell me what you think of it.

I think it would be so fun to meet all our "blog buddies" on an atkins cruise or something similar. I know several ladies on a low-carb forum who have a big get together every year. They just pick the spot and spend the rest of the year making plans to be there. They have a ball!
