And now, back to your regularly scheduled program.

  1. I love the “you’re all winners in my book” thing. My dance coach used to tell me that when I’d accidentally fall off the stage during nationals. It was just enough to remind me that 10th place still counts 🙂

    1. Tori! Thanks for stopping by. And PS: I fall all the time. It’s a well-known fact around these parts.

    1. Hey, lucky winner! Send me your email and get ready for linky-love next month during Made-It Up Monday! Congratulations!

  2. Damn I lost

    1. Are you talking about our last 15 WWF games? 🙂

  3. Yessssss! I am sending my address to you ASAP. Thank you, Renee!! (And yes, I totally heard you sing, “Awwww, freak out!”) You really know how to do up an bloggy anniversary month, so I can only imagine how awesome the bar mitzvah is going to be!

    1. Send me snail mail address! Not email, crazy! 😉

  4. Woohoo!

    1. You were always a winner, baby. Can’t wait to write you a letter.

  5. So excited!!! I have been wanting to read that book! You are cool fries with a side of awesome sauce. 🙂

    1. Send me your snaily-maily address. You’ll get it a lot faster! 😉

  6. Le freak, c’est chic! Hot damn I won a hot dog yoga bag- sweat! I mean sweet!

    1. I hope you love it! It’s a great bag!

  7. How fun! I won something! If I read Tyler’s book will it make ME famous. Then he can write me a letter. Thanks for thinking of me!

    1. Steve! You are already famous. If you don’t know TT, you are about to get very happy! The book is formatted a little wonky, but Tyler’s content is solid gold. Like better than the show in the 1980s! 😉 I’m glad you won.

  8. AAAHHHHHH! JM won the yoga bag!!! I’m super jealous right now. Can we like…arm wrestle for it or something?! Wait, no…I’m bad at arm wrestling. how bout a round of backgammon? 😉
    I laughed when you started singing freak out.
    This was so fun. Thanks for the party.

    1. EA: if you really love the bag, tweet HotDog Yoga and tell Michael you love the bag. Tell him I asked you to ask how much it is and if he can offer a discount. Who knows? Maybe he will. Can’t hurt to ask, right?

      I would love to play backgammon with you one day! 😉

  9. Congrats on all your blog success, Renee! So honored to have been a part of the celebration!

  10. So happy to have one. Thought I had commented but I don’t see it! THANKS!

  11. So those of us who are losers aren’t really losers, we’re winners? So when do I get my swag?
