[The deadline for this contest has passed and I've put the correct answers in red italics. Thanks for everyone who played!]
I have to pause a moment in my life to talk about YOU instead of about me. I am grateful to all of you who check in routinely as well as those of you who check in merely as often as you can. I understand the demands of a busy lifestyle and am grateful for even one tiny minute of your time.
And so, because of my unflagging gratitude I would like to host a gladatorial game of sorts and the unlucky winner can quake with fear and trepidation at the prospect of the prize which is .... DINNER WITH WENDY!
Yes, it's true.
Okay, here is what you have to do. Below I will post "25 Things about Wendy". In those 25 things there will be THREE that are not true. To enter you must list in the comments the three things you think are not true about me AND for your tie breaker / bonus round write 1-2 sentences about why YOU should win dinner with Wendy and what your ideal dinner with Wendy would be. The winner will be the one who has the most correct answers. In the event of a tie I'll either pick randomly or possibly not really randomly at all. Or maybe let the kids throw darts at the blog to choose. This is not a scientific contest and possibly not even done legally in some states. (However, there is no purchase necessary to win and I will refund all the money you've paid me if you are not completely satisfied.)
And what exactly will the prize entail? It depends on the winner. Seriously. Unless you live five miles from my house I will not be there in body, but it will definitely be "dinner with Wendy". AND... the final, but very important rule is that if you win you must take a picture of yourself (and a friend or friends) having dinner with Wendy and send it to me. If you don't, I will make you babysit the kids. And possibly my husband.
Also, this is NOT a sponsored post, although if someone out there WOULD like to sponsor a giveaway for my lovely, charming and deserving visitors, please do. But make it something really cool so they will love me forever. And also possibly name a kid after me.
