I’m A Finalist!!!!

Remember last week how I asked you all to vote for me? Well I was in the top 5 of votes and have been deemed a finalist.  That means for the next few days I get to daydream about what winning this prize would mean. A trip to Austin, Texas for BlogHer Food. I imagine all the food I’ll eat and the food excursions – which I’ve been cheerfully watching on the BlogHer Blog. I’ll imagine seeing my gorgeous pita pizzas served to all the attendees in the conference space, everyone will experience the product in it’s truest form and really appreciate it. While in Austin I’ll dine on my favorite food – tacos. I’ve never experienced tex mex foods so I’m going to enjoy every bite! I imagine I’ll take thousands of photos, and revel in the beauty of the food around me, sitting alongside other foodies who are just as excited to be there. Then I think about seeing my brother and sister and hugging my nephews and this trip would truly be once in a lifetime! On top of it all my husband would get to go on this trip with me – pinch me!

So thank you all for supporting me and my dreams, I really do thank each and every one of you for the vote you caste for me. For being on this journey with me.

Every year when BlogHer rolls around I see plenty of contest to win and every year I kick myself for not entering. I finally did it!!! I’m so thrilled to have made it this far and by checking out the other recipes the judge Lisa – Hungry Girl will have a hard time deciding. I’m grateful for experiences like this with Pompeian and only hope to continue to share my love for simple and delicious fresh foods for families.

We’ll find out Friday who the winner is!!

{wish me luck!}
