I know what you are thinking. "Who actually works at work?" Or maybe, "Gosh, how rude of them to expect you to earn the money they are paying you."
So for now, I'll just say the trip was awesome. I got VERY sunburned. And here is what I bought in Jamaica.
And this is what I'm giving away! (the next picture)
You know you're excited! This little wooden turtle is carved out of wood, and the necklace is made out of wood beads and coffee beans. At least, that's what the guy told me when I bought it.
I think he's really cute.
I kind of want to keep him myself.
See? From Jamaica.
Holy cow, Jamaica was an experience. I'll tell you all about it later. For now, let me just say if you are in Jamaica, and someone tries to hand you something ("Take this necklace! It's free!" or maybe "Look at this pottery!"), put your hands in your pocket and back away. Don't touch it, don't take it, and don't even look interested. Because once it's in your hands, it's yours, and you have to pay for it.
Poor Kurt got stuck with this necklace. It looks so pretty on him.
(please ignore the extreme mess in the background)
Still, the island was beautiful and the people were wonderful.
You're probably wondering who won the giveaway, huh? Alright, alright, I'll get to the exiting stuff.
According to random.org, the winner of the Jamaican Giveaway is.....
"Oh yes totally agree with you on Pop-Tarts and Kraft Mac N Cheese!! Generic brands I save where I can :)"
Please email me your mailing address at laniereeblog(at)gmail(dot)com, and I'll get those out to you.
And be grateful I didn't choose to give away these things. Blue plastic water shoes, worn by me in the Dunn's River Falls, in Ocho Rios Jamaica. Turns out they don't let you climb in flip flops. When I had to pay $7 for these beauties, Kurt was all "I think we've found your giveaway item."
I was tempted.
But in the end, I decided that a cheap pair of size 6 watershoes was just not exciting enough.
Am I right?
