    I am organizing all of the information and should be contacting all of the highest bidders this afternoon. I will also be drawing a winner for my giveaway tonight! :)

    Thank you again for all of your passion with this Bake Sale. Not only did we raise a TON of money for a worthy cause, but I also hit a new record reaching close to 10,000 hits on my blog yesterday!! I guess you guys were serious with checking out the bidding updates!

    I dreamt about the Bake Sale last night and after my accidental sleep in yesterday, my body made sure I woke up before my alarm went off to make sure there were  no repeats. I think I was also excited to check my e-mail, like a kid on Christmas morning. :)

    I got up, ran 5.5 miles in the surprisingly chilly air (40 degrees in April? I thought I lived in Florida) then got straight to work tallying up the final numbers.

    I also made a great cereal breakfast.

    1/2 cup Kashi Honey Sunshine, 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean, 1/4 cup Chocolate is For Lovers Granola, Grapes, Strawberries, & Vanilla Chobani.

    Remember be on the look out for those e-mails to the highest bidders. Don’t worry if you didn’t earn the highest bid there is still a chance you can win my Blogging Bake Sale Giveaway drawing tonight. ;)
