Yankee Candle Comment Winner Announced!

POSTED IN : Casa de Youngren

Thanks to everyone that submitted their comments for my Yankee Candle cozy giveaway this week! I love y’all so much that it brings out my inner southern belle. I feel like inviting’ y’all in for sweet tea and bridge club. (I just finished listening to The Help audiobook, and I think that I have THE BEST southern accent. Some would disagree though. Like everybody.)

Every morning this week, I would wrap myself up in my heated blanket with a Chai latte and read through your cozy comments. Some of my favorites were:

From Cassie: Omg, my all time favorite cozy place is under a blanket with a fire place going, hot chocolate with marshmallows and a Disney movie. When I was a kid I used to love to do that and watch star search. Most cozy ever.

(I haven’t heard the word Star Search for an ETERNITY. Major props to Cassie for the blast from the past.)

From Kendall: Tucking my feet under my husbands legs at night when they are cold and he is warm… Now that is ultimate cozy!

(Our poor husbands… Did anyone warm them about the cold feet thang along with the whole ‘death do us part’ thang? ‘Cuz my cold feet just may send Jeff to the grave with how many times I shock him awake at night with my icy toes. But Jeff swears he loves every single thing about me – my river dance impressions, my piles of dirty clothes, AND my nasty clammy feet.)

From Dee: Favorite cozy place is my hammock during the summer!

(I’m soooooo getting a hammock for the office now. The bottom of my emails will read, ‘sent from my iHammock’.)

**But the true winner was chosen at complete random by this WordPress plugin. The winner is**

Amanda: My bed is my favorite cozy place. On cold mornings, it makes it hard to get up!

I’ll be in touch via email with your winnings Amanda! Congrats! In the meantime, submit your favorite dutch oven recipe and win a $25 gift card to Sur La Table and a feature on a future Recipe Sunday!
