After losing 112 pounds in almost a year and a half, I have come to realize how very much I was missing. I may be Late to the Party, but I am doing my best to catch up in my own unique way!

Winner of the Chocolate Giveaway for 50 Followers!

Finally!  I had every intention to draw a winner on Tuesday, but my little accident on the hiking trail put me slightly behind.  To prepare for the drawing, I printed off EVERY single comment made on the any post since I had started the blog, as well as each of my followers.  Then I folded each one and had Mr. Ed, the hubby, draw a name tonight. 

Drum roll, please.....the winner is Debbie of Love the Decor!  Congratulations, Debbie, and thanks so much for being a faithful follower and a great friend out there in Blog Land!  Some of you might remember that I "met" Debbie through a swap.  She was my partner and sent me such lovely things.  Oh, and today is her birthday!  How cool is that?  Just a coincidence,  or God-incidence!  Happy Birthday! Chocolate is on its way, Debbie!

Looking toward the future, I will be announcing another giveaway soon.  Before I do that I need to follow through on my Pay it Forward commitment and that will be coming possibly next week, so stay tuned.  As for all of you who follow Late to the Party and comment and encourage me, thank you so very much.  Stick with me and see what is coming just around the corner!


  1. Congratulations, Debbie. Enjoy these delicious chocolates!

  2. OK, I guess I have to congratulate the winner......I really wanted this! LOL! Congratulations Debbie


  3. Congrats to you for reaching your goal of 50 (and surpassing it!) And congrats to Debbie for winning. YUM!
