And the winners are...

...Finally here! I know you all probably think I abandoned you, but fear not! I haven't.
Since it was so nice of my teacher to accept the not-very-easy job of judging all of the amazing pictures that came in, I let her take the time she needed to judge them. It had to be put off several times due to the fact that she, unlike me, has a real job! LOL! And she got attacked in Rio last week, so I let it slide. (I can LOL right here because she was not seriously injured, just shaken up. And she's ok!)

*To see all of the original entries please visit this post:

So my fabulous judge is the awesome photographer Lisa Wiltse- visit her site here. And marvel at her awesome pix and bajillion amazing photography awards! :D She really took judging seriously and put a lot of thought into her picks. She picked the winner and all of the runners up and honorable mentions.

The winners will recieve:
1st- A feature on TPRM and 2 of my homemade guest soaps of their choice! Also, the winner's photo will be placed in the running for the final vote off after the end of the challenges (4 more).
2nd, 3rd, 4th- Runner's up will have their buttons placed on my front page for a week with a post linking to their sites. Also, the runners up photos will be placed in the running for the final vote off after the end of the challenges (4 more).
Honorable mentions- A post linking to their sites.

So, without further ado... on to the Winners! (And really, you're all winners, cause I thought all of your pictures rocked! I know that's kind of cheesy, but it's true! :))

In 1st place, we have, drumroll please....

Tiffany from They Call Me Mama!

(*Side note- This is my personal super fave- this is a little restaurant in the itty bitty town where Anna and I grew up, Union, SC. Gene- the guy that runs and owns it- has been running it and cooking there everyday since I was a little kid and well before that! He's still there everyday, making delicious hamburgers for my dad! Love you Dad and Gene! Oh, and the chicken truck? It's legendary. :D
Anna- when I saw you entered this, I died laughing and then cried cause I loved it so much! TY!)

Here is your button ladies! Congrats!
