I've never done THIS before...

Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit! I've won

BEST OF SHOW at the State Fair!!!

Yes, it's true. I am suffering with an EXTREME (nearly lethal) case of swollen ego. Send ibuprofen for the swelling and smelling salts for the shock. I'm stunned - gobsmacked is the best adjective I can use to describe my shock.

It's been several years since I've sent anything to the Fair, so I had almost forgotten how exciting it is when something earns a ribbon. Even my little "Sweetest Thing Ever" won a blue ribbon in it's little category. This must be how moms feel when their kids bring home straight A's on the report cards!
