Blog Bake Sale Success + One More Item!

by Meghann on February 10, 2009

I am proud to say the Blogging Bake Sale was a complete success! Every single item has been sold!

It was very exciting yesterday to watch all the bids come in. Everyone seemed to willing to help with a good cause and I want to send out big thanks for that! I am still working out the final figures, but it looks like we raised well over $1100! Iโ€™ll post the final figures at lunch or dinner.

If you won the highest bid, you should be receiving an e-mail from me some time today. Remember you have 24 hours to make the donation at my TNT page or the baked good will go to the next highest bidder. Once the donation goes through I will be forwarding your mailing address to the baker who will ship the goods your way some time this week. Let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you again for all of your interest in the bake sale!

For those of you who missed out yesterday, it looks like we have a late entry to the Blogging Bake Sale. Jenna from EatLiveRun has just donated a loaf of her Oatmeal Bread!!! If you would like to purchase this amazing bread e-mail me at blogbakesale@gmail.com PLEASE HAVE ALL BIDS TO ME BY 5PM EST!!!  ๐Ÿ™‚

I have to admit when I woke up this morning my legs were a little sore from my speedy run last night. I stretched out the bet I could and ran an easy 3.68 miles around my neighborhood. It had actually been way to long since I ran that loop and I missed it.

When I returned all I was craving was fruit so I made myself a big Fruit Salad for breakfast.

In my fruit salad I had Apples, Pineapple, Strawberries, Blueberries, and Blackberries, all mixed together with Non Fat Vanilla Yogurt.

I topped the Fruit Salad with the new Cinnamon Crunch Cereal (Granola?) I received for my Birthday.

It was pretty good, but a little hard. I tried to break thee large pieces into smaller ones and found it difficult. But I loved how it wasnโ€™t too sweet.

Iโ€™m off to tally the bake sale results and maybe get some real work done. ๐Ÿ™‚ Is it too early to go on another vacation?!?!?!

That’s awesome that everything got sold!

I sent in a bid for some cookies a few times yesterday afternoon, but it looks like the list never got updated with my bid? I just wanted to check. If my emails didn’t come through and someone else got it, no biggie – they still got sold!

This is such a wonderful idea! I’m seriously considering doing a half marathon for Chrons and Colitis, and although my blog doesn’t receive nearly the amount of readers yours does, it gives me great ideas! I wish I would have discovered your blog sooner, I would have put in a bid or two!
