  1. $25 I can't pass this up. :) I also can't believe I'm first!

  2. Congrats, Connie! I'll send you the official email later tonight. :)

  3. Is it over or can we still bid? If bidding is still open I bid $26. (But for my writing buddy K.D. McAdams)

  4. This particular item is now closed as it was a "Race to Donate" item. But, should Connie not pay for her item within the next 36 hours, you'll be considered the next winner. :)
