I won!

My friend Joanna from The Fifty Factor had a great giveaway recently. Imagine my surprise when I got an e-mail from her on Christmas night, telling me I was the winner of an $80 gift certificate to CSN stores!
CSN stores has about anything you might want, so I had to think about what to use this on. In the end, I decided to put it towards a food processor. I've always wished I had one and I decided this was the time.
Once I ordered it, it arrived in no time.

Isn't it beautiful? It slices and chops in no time. I know it'll get lots of use in my kitchen.
Thanks Joanna!

Oh Mari Sweetie...
Congrats what a wonderful spend. I love this beautiful food processor, you lucky duck. Slices and dices in one quick instant I bet.

I am so tickled you and your daughter enjoyed my post. I had fun with this one, and Star Wars has always been one of my favs. I just had to run with it.

Hope you are doing well sweetie. Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Of course you won! You're a winning kind of gal!
That's a good looking food processor and a good choice for your winnings. They are so useful, I have an old one, but still like it and use it.
Now go and cook up something yummy!

Hey Mari, GREAT choice! I was thrilled when you won the giveaway (thanks for the shout out) and even happier when I saw what you purchased. My Cuisinart was a wedding present 17 years ago and I have used it countless times-- easily a few times a week! I couldn't cook without it. I hope you love yours too!

Cheers, jj
