Happy Sunday + Race to “Runaway Bride” Giveaway #1 winner

Happy Sunday!

Christmas is coming! Christmas is coming!  Are you ready?

I don’t think I am, but I AM HAPPY that I’ve gotten most of my holiday shopping done. :singingtree

I AM HAPPY that I got something for Madame Mommy Dearest that she’s been wanting for a really long time…she’s going to be so excited! :winkcookie

I AM HAPPY that I was able to buy a ton of cat & dog food (almost literally) to be donated to both my local SPCA & the Hundred Cat Foundation for their annual “Feral Cat Food Drive.”  Donations to shelters & animal rescue organizations drop significantly over the holidays, which is why I like to step things up & donate even more.  Even if they don’t have forever homes yet, those sweet little furbabies still need to eat & be taken care of, right?

I AM HAPPY, too, that I’ve gotten almost all of the goodies & prizes I’ve promised all of you—here, on the HappyBookers loop, & anywhere else—all packed up & ready to mail.  So you will be getting them soon, My Darlings!  Maybe not before Christmas, especially considering how overloaded the postal system tends to be this time of year, but soon. :reindeergift

And finally, I AM HAPPY to announce the winner of this week’s “Race to RUNAWAY BRIDE” Giveaway #1—a signed copy of my sexy, funny holiday vampire romance, THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS

    Congrats Brooke. I am happy the shopping is done, the prezzies are wrapped and I can concentrate on the parties!

    :yeah :mrbojanglesanta :singingtree

    • Heidi says:

      Ooh, parties—sounds fun! :clink

      I don’t have anything wrapped yet, but I do think I have everyone crossed off my shopping list, & that’s a huge plus. Usually, I’m one of those folks running around Walmart at 11pm Christmas Eve. :whaaat

  2. Brooke C says:

    I’m very happy to have won the Bite Before Christmas and to be spending the day with my extended family. This is turning out to be a great Sunday! :dancingsanta :yeah

    • Heidi says:

      Congratulations again, Brooke! And thank you for sending your info; it makes my life so much easier when winners contact me so I don’t have to hunt them down. :yeah

      I’ll get THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS in the mail to you as soon as I can. And I hope you’ll drop back in to let me know what you think once you’ve had a chance to read it. :merrychristmasbabe

    Congrats Brooke!! You will love it!!!!

    B’girl was crowned Miss Kentuckiana Christmas and best dressed at her pageant Friday night. Turned around on Saturday (same place as pageant) and had her first theater/dance performance and did awesome!!!! This is a big deal, she’s quiet and soft spoken. I was so proud of her.

    My oldest is home from college. Only 2 semesters to go of “required” stuff and then a semester of interning (he’s hoping to intern at the State House) and then graduation. He’s already looking at Grad schools so he will have a little more school after that, but the biggest hurdle for him will be out of the way.

    • Heidi says:

      Wow, B-girl is so incredibly talented! And busy. When does she sleep? :sadcookie

      It’s nice to have all the kids home for the holidays, too. I hope you have a blast! And stay warm…I know how much you had the cold & snow. :madsnowman

    The shopping and wrapping is almost done too for me and I got my cards out earlier in the week. I’m just happy its the holiday season and enjoy this time of the year.


    • Heidi says:

      Yay for you, Dee! Except for wrapping, I’m pretty much done with everything, too. Although my cards aren’t technically in the mail yet. :snowmanhead

      Soon, tho. And I’m looking forward to kicking back & just enjoying the holiday, too. :singingtree

    Congrats to Brooke!

    I am happy all the shopping is done, the presents are wrapped, the decorations are up and now I just have to worry about Christmas dinner.


    • Heidi says:

      LOL I haven’t given much thought to Xmas dinner, either. Thanksgiving was so good, tho, I may just go for a total repeat. (Dang, now I’m hungry! :dancingtree )

      I’m surprised everyone’s so on top of the shopping & prep this year, tho—is no one going to drop the ball & end up panicking on Christmas Eve? That’s what I usually do, but this year even I’m ahead of the game. :chimneyman

    Congrats Brooke..
    I had a very very lovely weekend.. Had Christmas Afternoon Tea at a very lovely old hotel with my cousin and her galpal, then we shopped and then we took my cousin back to her house where there was a very big surprise party for her 50th Birthday, which she will be celebrating on the 24th of this month… despite the snow storm lots of family and friends showed up…

    :yeah I’m happy most of my gifts are mailed or wrapped. Only waiting on 2 more packages. Still working on cards. :iceskatingman
