Avon SSS Age Defying Winner!
First, I want to thank all that took the time to enter my giveaway. With Mother's Day right around the corner, I enjoyed reading how you were going to spend your day. Some posts made me smile, some brought tears to my eyes, and some made me chuckle. I wish I could give ALL of you something, because you all deserve it!
I haven't yet decided how I will be spending my Mother's Day, but I am sure it will include a visit to my mother and a visit to the cemetery to visit my grandmother. Jose will call up his mom in Guatemala and wish her a great day over the phone (yes, they celebrate Mother's Day there too!) and probably talk to all his sisters as well since they have a huge gathering at their parent's house. He has another sister in Rhode Island who he will call, and we will visit her next weekend. My daughter gave me two gorgeous pink carnations today, and I've put them in a vase on the kitchen table so I can see them all the time :).
Now, on to the winner! Random.org chose lucky number 86 as the winner of the Avon SSS Age Defying bundle! BIG congrats go out to: Georgie C who wrote:

Georgie C I will be sending you an email later this evening and you will have 48 hours to get back to me or I will have to choose another winner! So PLEASE get back to me so I can send you your Avon prize! Congrats!
I also had a lucky day--I had a couple of bloggie wins AND I went to a Luck of The Draw Auction and won a tire rotation GC, $25 GC to a Family Fun Center (bowling alley/restaurant) and a cute little bracelet for Deja. Next weekend I will be doing the same thing, but in RI...hoping to win some restaurant GC for some nice ethnic food, yum! In RI they call them Penny Socials, here in Maine they are called Chinese Auctions or Luck of the Draw auctions and in other parts of the country they call them Tricky Trays from what I have heard. This particular one was for the Humane Society in the next county over, and I have to admit it is a great fundraiser for the animals! The one I will be at next weekend is a fundraiser for the local Catholic community of churches where I used to live. I always try to time my visit to RI so I can attend these functions, they are lots of fun! Do any of you go to these, and if so, what do they call them in your area?
