  1. Oh no!!! No, no, no! I missed it! eck! I was so looking forward to doing this hunt too!
    I don’t know why but I thought the deadline was next week! Darn it!

    Oh well, I loved reading who everyone choose!
    This was a great idea Kristine and I hope next year I won’t be so absent minded:)


  2. Congratulations to the winners! This is a great list of links and such a good idea, Kristine. Perhaps it should be a new blogiversary tradition … each of us could do it on our blogiversary!


    • Haha! I am so glad you had fun! I am not sure if I will do it again – it was a lot more work than I expected. Though, that seems to be how I roll. 😉

      Thanks again for participating! It made the day very special.


  3. WOO HOO! I never win anything! Thanks so much for randomly selecting me! And for having a blogiversary! And a scavenger hunt! And posting all these links! And for writing your butt off! Okay, I’m done. 😉


    • Thanks for participating! You came up with some pretty cool answers. I love finding new blogs. It’s like opening a brand new book.

      Congratulations! I will try to contact you today about picking out your t-shirt!


  4. This was so much fun. Thanks for hosting.

    But I had no idea our scavenges were going to be public. I wouldn’t have linked to Cesar’s blog either. And I’m a little worried that Edie won’t like me anymore for saying Frankie had a funny hair do.

    What worries me even more, though, is that someone out there wants to adopt Honey. Should I put a lock on the gate? Or maybe just publish some stories about what a horrible dog she is? 🙂


    • Well, Edie wouldn’t have known it was you until now… I think she will be honoured. Frankie’s hair-cut may be funny, but it is also awfully cute.

      I am not sure if I would be violating confidentiality if I told you who said they wanted Honey. But I don’t think you have to be afraid. She would have been one of my choices for that category too. 🙂


    • My sincerest apologies! It has been fixed now. I guess a mistake or two was bound to happen after all that linking. Thank you so much for pointing it out!

      Has Desmond’s mom been sending love letters to Tori? Not that I will confirm or deny your guess. 😉


  5. OH for WOOF SAKES! I even did the hunt and then forgot to send it to you? Way to be, me. I am so sorry I missed it. Oh well, I still had the fun of the scavenger hunt. You always have the coolest event ideas… Any great idea’s for Kol’s Birthday Bash this year? LOL.


  6. thank you so much, kristine, for running this scavenger hunt. i thought it was so fun and all these answers are great! hope you enjoyed your blogiversary.
