A Lagniappe for Lesa: I WON!!!

So exciting! When I clicked on the post  Charity Event Results and Winners at Random Ramblings, the first bit of good news I read was that  donations totaled $220 dollars!  Yippee! The  proceeds were divvied up between two worthy organizations: Save The Children and First Books.  

Now for the second bit of good news: As a thank you to donators, the hosts of the Charity Event offered seven giveaways. I never win drawings or giveaways so what a pleasant surprise to see my name listed as the winner of the $40 CSN gift certificate. What a fabulous lagniappe!  Much more than a little something extra-- Thank you, Jillian,  Linna, and Raila!

Now for the fun: Shopping! We love shopping here at Mrs. BG as you can read here and here.  But have you seen the CSN Store website?  How will I settle on one thing? And I only have until December 31 to decide!

Any Ideas?

By the way, CSN doesn't sell books, which is a shame. Maybe a bookcase, instead-- Wonder if hubby would fall for the 'I'm saving money by spending money' line again...
