Who's The Big Winner??!!

Oh. My. God.

I was a bit groggy this morning after last night's revelry... The start of Cookbook University Day 2 was slow going and I was doing my best to mainline coffee, knowing I was probably going to need toothpicks to prop open my eyelids at some point.

And that's when the DMs, emails and calls started coming.

"CONGRATULATIONS!!" said Julie.

"Have you checked Cincinnati Women Bloggers this morning?" said Shannan.

Amy In Ohio rang me up and I explained that I was sans computer and that my blackberry wasn't the most sophisticated tool where viewing videos is concerned.

And that's when Amy clued me in to the little nugget that I won the CWB contest for a free pass to BlogHer '09.

Needless to say, I perked right up for the remainder of my cookbook conference.

BlogHer, in case you didn't know it, is a conference for women bloggers scheduled for the end of July in Chicago. Tickets went for $300 a person, though now the event is sold out.

I knew I was going to have to do some tight budgeting to swing the entry fee - if I could actually find a pass up for grabs.

I cannot believe I won this opportunity.

And I am so grateful for it.

I promise to share the knowledge I learn about blogging with the intrepid readers of Kate's Random Musings and I promise to be a good steward of Cincinnati.

I also promise to do my best and have a fun time at the swanky cocktail parties and grab as much swag as my arms and bags can carry.

Cheers!
