Thank YOU!!!! -- I'm going to Vermont!!!!!

A BIG THANK YOU to Stonyfield and to everyone who voted for me for the first ever Stonyfield Blogger Barnstorming contest -- I WON!!!!!

This calls for some serious jumping on the couch!


I'm busy packing my bags for Vermont and New Hampshire to learn more about organic farming and share what I learn with you, and Stonyfield is donating $5,000 to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network on my behalf -- Woo Hoo!!!


Stonyfield has posted a short video about me and my family -- You can view it here and check out the other two finalists as well! I cannot wait to meet Anne from fANNEtastic Foods and Tina from Carrots N Cake -- so exciting!!

Thank YOUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!! xoxoxox
