  6. THE Homemade Truffles?

    If I leave a bribe with this comment, does it increase my chances of winning?

    You are awesome, and I'm glad you had a fun week.
    (that wasn't the bribe...just the truth!)

  7. Dude, I hope I win, and I hope the truffles aren't too big of a dairy-free cheat ;) So happy I stumbled onto your corner of the Internet during your first year!

    And you know I'd be willing to PAY for those truffles...just sayin.

  17. Truffles. Truffles. MMMMMMM. Truffles.

    Since my comment is not even close to Baby E.'s age, I know I'll lose. It's been a good ride. Have a wonderful 2nd year.

    ReplyDelete

  19. Thank YOU
    You were there when I first began my blog, welcoming me.
    You tweeted out that I was new.
    I was welcomed into a group of women I never knew existed.
    Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Just wishing you another well earned CONGRATULATIONS...
    I can't wait to see what the 2nd year brings from this amazing space. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I just hurried through my washcloth "shower" so that I could catch up on the people I've been missing. Congratulations on your first year!

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a wonderful ride, my friend....thanks for taking us all along!

    And I'm hoping Green Skirt gal makes a comeback next year...

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am sorry to see the green skirted lady to go, but if it means I might seem homemade truffles in my mailbox? Well, good riddance!

  26. Congratulations Miss Empress on a truly fine accomplishment. Did you know that 62% of blogs fail in the first year? (That may or may not be true. Did you know that 87% of of statistics are just made up ;-)

    One person will be oh-so-lucky!
    Enjoy the day!

    ReplyDelete
  32. ya know, you could send some trufffles my way even if i don't win.

    ReplyDelete
  33. i'm the one standing quietly in the back... thinking, hoping, holding my breath - Oh I hope they choose me, please choose me!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I hope my comment's a lucky one too...because you know I could always use some roasted coffee from your hometown. No, truly.

    Wow, the week went fast! Oh goodbye, lady in the green skirt.

    So nice to celebrate your week long blogoversary with you, dear Empress. So happy to celebrate and know YOU. :-))

    ReplyDelete
  35. I LOVE that pictuer! Ha! I also love that you celebrated your blogoversary all week. What a great idea! I need to do something nice for my readers. Thank you for inspiring me!

    ReplyDelete
  36. *picture

    Oh, and I would LOVE to receive any or all of the things you mentioned. Fun!

    ReplyDelete
  37. If I could send you all homemade truffles I would. But the P.O. kills me with their shipping rates.

    And those truffles can't go in flat boxes.

    GOOD LUCK!

    I, personally, can't wait to see how Baby E will determine the winner.

    That's always the highlight for me with the giveaways.

    He cracks me up. And not just cuz he's my kid...well, maybe...

    ReplyDelete
  38. Pick me! It's my birthday month!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yum...truffles.

    Talk about the best giveaway. I love that it's so personal :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'd like the prize, please, if only to complement the green polyester pantsuit I am wearing now in homage to your anniversary week.

    Felicitations, by the way - thanks for the laughs!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Truffles?? Coffee?? Signed, original piece of artwork, from Baby E?? Oh, how wonderful!!!

    All of my favorite things...all in one post. How do you do it??! :)

    Happy, Happy Blogoversary- you have made the world a better place with your wit, kindness and overall awesomeness.

    Thank you!
    XOXO

  42. Is it legal to send truffles over the border? Will Baby E be carrying a passport?

    ReplyDelete
  43. I just want to know how many cans of hairspray the lady in the green skirt had to use to get her hair to stay in that very attractive beehive.

    ReplyDelete
  44. i want the coffee, the truffles, I want it all! I just don't want to look like the lady in the green skirt.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Congratulations on your blogoversary! And if you need any more pictures to give away, I can have my Princess E send you a few she has painted. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Mmmmm, truffles. Good luck to all (though I'm definitely crossing fingers and toes for this one).

    I'm sad to see your blogoversary come to an end. And also that I won't see lady in green skirt any longer. *sniff*

    ReplyDelete
  47. Well, I'm late but I read every post for everyday. I think I can let go of the need to hire an expensive friend.
    Your posts have inspired me, made me take a closer look at who I am, who I wish I was and what I'm gonna go do now.

    And, I loved reading them all! Happy Blogoversary!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Congratulations again on your blogoversary! And thank you for welcoming me so warmly when stepped into this bloggy world.

  50. Well, I was here every single day waiting for the cake to be served, so truffles would be a very nice substitute!

    Now if you could please the photo of me in my lovely green suit off of your lovely blog, I would be so happy.

    ReplyDelete
  51. You have outdone yourself, Celine! What an amazing giveaway! Especially the Baby E. artwork.

    And Baby E? Don't torment yourself. I know you promised that I would win this - and in my heart, I have.

    Choose the winner justly (gulp), tis all I ask.

    ReplyDelete
  52. If I win? Does the dancing lady in the green suit come in person to deliver your truffles to my door?

    That would be almost better then Ed McMahon delivering the giant million dollar check

    (I said *almost*... I LOVE you, but I ain't crazy.)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Good bye Green Skirt..Looking forward to another great year following you and Baby E, Empress.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think we all need a picture of YOU shaking it in that green skirt!

    ReplyDelete
  55. You know how much I want those truffles and the autographed picture by Baby E. IWANTTHEM. STAT.

    (Happy Blogiversary week, Empress, it's been a doozy)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Me me me me!

    Can it be me??

    Cause you know...me and chocolate. We're buds. Really!

    And happy happy happy happy blogoversary! So happy you and your blog are here!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Truffles <3 OMG, freaking Happy Happy HAPPY Blogoversary!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm going to miss the green skirt.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hooray for YOU and your fabulousness and your green skirt and your give-aways! Yes. Hooray for YOU!! XO

    ReplyDelete
  60. What a year! I would be honored to win any of the prizes, but will admit to being disappointed that the green skirt is not one of them. With St. Patrick's Day and Easter coming up, I could really have rocked it if I won.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Wow it was one busy week of partying, you must be so tired :) Oh truffles, yum!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oh I will miss the green skirt but I would totally trade it for truffles. Why don't you just have an anniversary year? This week with you was fun! Although next week will be too, and the week after that, and the week after that. XOXO

    ReplyDelete
  63. Aw. I can always attempt it one more time, right?

    ReplyDelete
  64. This is what I get for being under a rock. I've missed all the fun!

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I will totally add my google adsense dollars into the pot. The coat of postage might be more but it will be worth. Happy Blogoversary!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Did I miss this? Do you come present the gifts in person?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Happy Blogoversary to one of my favorite bloggers!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Glad you had a wonderful week celebrating! :-)
