Wow, do I love a party! Besides being tax day, this is also my 9-year-old daughter's birthday. I am taking her out of school early, and we are going to lunch at Subway, then on to shopping and a pedicure. We're picking up my teenage daughter as well so it should be a fun girl's day out. Today is also the last day of my contest! I don't actually know how to run a contest, but this one really isn't about me anyway. It's about giving back to you, my blogging buddies.
Thanks for bringing so much fun and happiness into my life over the last few months. I'm reposting the particulars of said contest.

Use a calculator and tally up those points and let me know your numbers on April 16th. I will send your prizes to you the next day!
What prizes, you ask? Awesome prizes, that's what.
First Place: a $50.00 Nordstrom Giftcard. It's a shiny iridescent-silver, and oh, the things it will get you, on-line or in the store. Think of a pretty turquoise and black Brazen scarf, an over-sized Ariella ring, a pastel, grosgrain-banded Tarnish fedora. And don't forget the Sproutwatch. Cutest darn eco-friendly timepiece in existence! There's thatPhilosophy Blackberry body wash and lotion set you've been coveting and the Dior Addict lip gloss that really could be addictive. What about the Marc Jacob Hobo handbag which would look so perfect hanging from your arm? (Sigh) Okay, I went too far that time. No way can you get Marc Jacobs for fifty bucks. But there is a lot of great stuff to be had.
Don't worry guys, Nordstrom has a lovely Men's department as well. According to my husband, the Smart Wool socks are the bomb. They have gorgeous dress shirts and ties, not to mention cologne pour homme and skin care products.
The Second and Third Prizes are the ever-enviable Barnes and Noble gift cards in the amount of $25.00. We all love B&N! Show me a writer who doesn't like to read, and I'll have them tested for astigmatism.
P.S. The cookie dough has arrived from my kid's school fundraiser. Like five tubs of it! If I could, I would have you all at my kitchen table enjoying this treat--which should be tasty since I didn't actually make it myself. Daniel Craig tells me it's just cookie dough. It has no power over me unless I allow it. He's right. Right?!
Party on, dudes!
