Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

I did it the old fashioned way this time - I picked a name out of a hat vase -

Suzan whispers - John.  John?
Suzan says a little louder - JOHN ???  ARE YOU AWAKE?
John says - What the?  Covering his face from the light ( which I put on as dim as it gets in case you
think I'm thoughtless...............
John says - What time is it?
Suzan says - 5 in the morning
John yells - Turn out the light for God's sakes
John yells - What are you doing there standing with a vase in your hand?
Suzan says - I have to pick my winner, can you just stick your hand in here and ................
John says - Are you completely insane?
John says - GOOD NIGHT
Suzan says - well technically it's morning - wow - you're crabby

and I dejectedly walk down the hall - shake the bowl and pick a name all by myself......................
it was quite lonely.
I'm officially removing him from my Hey Girl, entry, seriously

and the winner is - selected by my very own hand - THE UNITED STATES OF DANNI

John comes stumbling down the hall a little later and I mean literally stumbling
John says - Where's the bloody vase ?
Suzan says - Too late - it's done
Suzan says - Go back to bed
John says - Just wait - just wait until you're asleep...........................

Have a beautiful weekend everyone


  1. Wooo Hooo!!! I'm excited!! Thank you very much and I guess I have to say I'm glad John didn't pick....might have turned out different! Do I get that pretty vase too???!!!! (just kidding...but it is really pretty.) Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  2. Congrats Danni!!!! It couldn't have gone to anyone nicer Suzan. I'm jealous though!!

  3. I prefer the old fashioned way of drawing names....congrats to Danni. Are you sending her a chicken dinner too Suzan? Seems only right. ;)

  4. Insanely jealous! Just kidding - congratulations to Danni. Pulling names from a vase is the only vintage way of choosing!

  5. Congrats to Danni! I was splitting my sides reading your post Suzan and I read it out loud to my husband who wasn't very amused since he was watching 'Enter The Dragon' for only the 10,000th time…anyway you could easily replace John and your name with my husband and me and it would be a typical day in the Engineer House…down to the very last stumble! By the way in case you're wondering what's with the 'Engineer'…? It's my last name! Have a great weekend! xx Rani :)

  6. Congrats Danni! But name was right on top. WTH? ;)

  7. ja ha ha poor john congrats to Danni

  8. I'm okay with losing if Danni is the winner. Congrats to her! In John's defence, you might have waited until the sun was up to choose. I'd leave him on your Hey Girl, for now.

  9. I like the old fashioned way of drawing too!

  10. Tell John I don't know if I can forgive him. I just know he would of picked my name.


  11. I'm happy for you Danni, and John... really? In the time it took you to argue you could have pulled that name and gone back to Le Dreamland. *wink wink*

    1. THANK YOU CINDY - that's exactly how I felt - sheesh - stick your hand in - pick a name - and go back to sleep!

  12. Susan, you are too much. I just love your blog, really. And I pick winners the old-fashioned way, too. I'm a pencil and paper kind of gal. Poor John...Did you have to pick the winner at 5 am?? Ha ha!


  13. Hi Suzan!!!!

    What a spoiled Danni girl!!!!

    Hi hope you enjoy it Danni. Was such a beautiful think to win!!!!

    Poor John. My husband would've killed me.


  14. This sounds like a conversation at my house (with my John):)) Found your blog through Danni @ Silo Hill Farm. Love vintage!

    1. lol - these are global conversations of bloggers I think!
      Thanks so much for the visit!
