Military Wedding Week Contest -WINNERS!

Hello ladies! I just want to say thank you to all of the participants of my contest! I loved seeing your photos and reading your stories. If you didn't check out all of the entries, you are missing out! [see them here]

I figured it wouldn't be a true Skinnie Piggie contest if these two little buggers weren't involved:

If you haven't already... meet Beans & Twix!

Without further ado... press play to find out the winner(s)!
Sorry for the background noise, I left the floor fan running...


1st Place= JENNA from Rank & File Wifey (see her entry)
2nd Place= ERICA from Hellcat Betty (see her entry)

Ladies you will receive an e-mail from me shortly with the details about your prize.

So here's what I did...
  • labeled pieces of paper 1-11
  • put names of the entrants in order of their entries (M-F)
  • lined them up on a piece of wood
  • added a carrot slice by each
  • opened the gate, and let their hungry tummies decide!
...and just in case you were wondering... YES, they ate ALL 11 carrots slices. Pigs.


  1. Hahaha...that was funny!!!!

    Congrats winners!

  2. That's a cute way to decide - VERY objective! :)

    Congrats to Jenna.

    I really enjoyed this contest and someday when I'm married, I'll be able to participate.

  3. Such a cute contest! When I get married, I'll be able to participate as well! =)

  4. Hahhahahaha!!! I Laughed SO hard! Love it!

  5. Thank you so much for your comment. I appreciate your insight and you gave me something to think about. I'm glad I found your blog too...I want to read about how you managed long distance dating, engagement and marriage counseling.

  6. I think I left out the part about the headstones that were special were only officers. Like all the enlisted get the same headstones but the officers get all of the fancy elaborate ones that have tons of detail and time that go into them. I know the whole cemetery isn't just officer but we only saw a portion of it.

  7. tell your guinea pigs i will reward them handsomely for their good work! ;)

  8. that has to be be far the best way to decide a contest...loved it!
    Congrats Jenna!

  9. THAT WAS WAY CUTE! I love your blog! :)

  10. ps. I'm keeping my head up and hoping that moving into housing is going to change things for the best.

  11. Yaaay! Thanks darlin! Your piggies made a wise choice! ;)

  12. I am dying. I also made Mr. Superman watch it because he couldn't understand why I was near hyperventilation induced from laughter. Oh boy, so funny. I love it!

  13. The LT's Wifey- they take payments of carrots, lettuce, or strawberries (to name a few of their favorites... really any veggie, fruit, or nut seems to do!)

    Star Spangled- I'm excited to get to know you as well

    L.C.- got it! Sorry if I sounded like I was being a know-it-all. Didn't mean it to come off that way at all

    Everyone else- I'm glad you enjoyed the piglets! They will be back =)

  14. Hahahahahaha that is so adorable!!! Congratulations to the winners!


I love hearing from you all! =)
