Six hundred and eighty entries. People. This is amazing. (And I’m doubly excited because I have an even bigger prize coming up in a couple of weeks that I think you’re really going to love, and I wonder if we’ll break this record, then, on account of your deep love for expensive free stuff.) Six hundred and eighty of you clamored “Pick meeeeee!” when it came to the Lands’ End gift card, and unfortunately, only one of you can win.

RuthWells is our lovely winner this morning, having struck it rich with comment number 315! Ruth will be receiving a $100 gift card to Lands’ End to spend on anything she likes! And the admiration of her peers! And a year’s supply of turtle wax! (Except that the turtle wax is imaginary. Details.)

Many, many thanks to Lands’ End for their generous donation, and don’t forget that today is the last day to use code SWIM with PIN 530530530 to get free shipping on your order.

I have a number of smallish giveaways coming up next and then something so totally awesome for Mother’s Day that you will be unable to fully express the extent of my prettiness. Stay tuned!


  1. Aw, I’m all verklempt! Thanks, pretty Mir & Lands End!

  2. Yay Ruth!

  3. Happy for Ruth, but also JEALOUS. Let us know what you buy.

  4. Woo hoo, Ruth – you lucky dog! I was number 319… details.

  5. Yay for RUTH WELLS! – you know, you must model your new suit for us all! ;D
    I threw out my suit that I bought when pregnant with first child – 12(!) years ago. As that very child, last year – at 11 – AT the public pool, had to inform his mother that the back end was, er – a bit revealing. OMG – talk about utter embarrasment! He handled it better than I did. I did get a new suit, but definitely not a Lands End…some day (I say that often.)

  6. Congrats Ruth!

  10. Ha ha, “A year’s supply of Turtle Wax”, it did seem that was a prize on every game show ever!
