I apologize for the weird sound delay once again. Me and Ben wanted to make this huge announcement via our HP Media gear but evidently I am still inept at this computer recording & uploading stuff. If anyone has suggestions then please let us know! We record then upload to YouTube and then this momentary delay occurs. Any ideas will be appreciated!

In the mean time, those at the BlogHer Conference 2009 will definitely miss out on the guys who could be the best entertainment available! Although my man Ben is a huge flirt, he's a gentleman at heart. Just between you and me he's definitely the best dancer. Also he's the only one I know who can actually get away with one of those "banana hammocks." Me? I prefer something a bit more modest...like clown pants?

Grand Prize Winner of the Capri Sun Sunrise Contest

Goes to Jan McDonough of Queen Creek, Arizona! Jan was chosen randomly from well over 300 entries, including some who had up to 3 entries each via a comment, a Tweet, or blogging about the sweepstakes. While Jan gets the $250 gift card (which I'd like to note would buy a bunch of Capri Sun Juice boxes in all kinds of flavors just to keep cool in that "dry" desert heat) our family still has some business to follow up. Because there were so many last minute entries we're still pouring over some of your morning experiences so that we can award a couple of secondary prizes.

Some of these great stories include sending your child to school on a weekend, forgetting to wear underpants, rescuing a pet from skunk spray before the bus arrived, brushing teeth with a product other than toothpaste, and a whole slew of wonderful tips to get your day started in a more orderly and tranquil fashion. I will be getting in touch with those winning a second prize in a few days and will update here once again to share the highlights of what you had to say!

We thank Capri Sun and BlogHer for allowing us to participate. We also thank each of you for sharing with us! Come back soon since more contests are in the works!
