Queen for a Day winners (& coupon codes)!

What fun we had this weekend with our Queen for a Day giveaway for mothers!

Thanks to each and every one who left a comment and shared a word that described their mother. Your comments were truly heartfelt and fun to read! Some of you shared about your sister, a grandmother, your own mom, or a friend – but everyone agreed that mothers are very special.

I wish everyone could win, but only one reader will take home the basket of goodies…

Congratulations to our Queen for the Day – Suzanne Slagell of Expecting Hope!!  Happy Mother’s Day, Suzanne, and enjoy your basket of handcrafted accessories, fine artwork, cookbooks and more!

We also have two runner-up winners, who will each receive a copy of The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier personally signed by Ree!

Those winners are…Rebecca H and Jessica R. Congratulations!! You have both been notified via email.
