We Survived! {Plus, Giveaway Winners}

Well Sandy has come and gone, and she’s left a lot of destruction behind.  We were spared where we live in New Jersey, but we aren’t so sure about my husband’s family’s shore house.  The shore took a beating, and we’re not allowed anywhere near the house until further notice.

We’re slightly emotionally exhausted right now, and I am bracing myself for Halloween parties and parades on our first day back tomorrow {can you say chaos??!!??!}, but I did want to pop in and announce the winners of my Candy Bar Election pack!

Yes. I said winners!  There were so many guesses that I  felt bad people had to guess candy bars they normally wouldn’t have just to get an entry.

Teri won because she guessed Twix, and Twix rocks my world.  I’m obsessed.  Whenever I buy the candy bar, I tell myself that I’m going to only eat one.  Yeah, that never happens.

And Kirby Miller, you’re my second winner, because random.org picked #10, but you didn’t leave your email!!  Email me {acrossthehallin2nd@gmail.com} before tomorrow night, or I’m picking another winner!

That’s all folks!  Keep everyone from Sandy’s path in your prayers, there are many who were less fortunate than my family and friends, including thousands without power.



  1. Prayers for you and your family!
    Stop by anytime! SMILES!

  2. Tomorrow is our first day back too, it should be interesting. My thoughts are with you and your family!

  3. I'm watching the Sandy aftermath on NBC. Wow, so much destruction. I'm glad you and your family are okay. Will continue to pray for everyone who was in her path. Have a great day tomorrow!

  4. I'm so glad you're all OK. Property loss is no fun, but health and well being always wins out over that! I hope your first day back isn't too crazy! You are all in my thoughts and prayers!!

  6. I am so glad you all are doing well!! I love the Candy for President idea and I completely agree about Twix. That candy bar is dangerous!
