**Winner Update** - Done with Kissing Toads!!

Congratulations to Helene for winning the book, The Husband Project - 21 Days to Loving Your Man by the terrific author, Kathi Lipp. Please email me with your address and I'll get it right out to you!
************************************************************************

I had had my share of online dating disappointments. This single thing wasn't what I expected it to be. So many toads...then, on a whim and of course, a free weekend on a particular dating site (not the two popular ones), I signed on. A day later, I was "winked" at by Boo. I hadn't seen a picture of him although he'd seen one of me. Funny thing is, Boo is not very computer savvy so his roommate at the time, who has since passed away, signed him up. She told him, "You need to find a wife!" We emailed back and forth for at least a week, still without me knowing what he looked like. I was checking on grammar and any hint that he could be a Nigerian scammer. The more I talked to him, I got this feeling that I couldn't describe - I just knew that I was going to marry him. I FELT it.

What tickled me to my very toes was that he really heard what I was saying in my emails and always made mention of or asked me about what was going on in my life. I liked that about him from the beginning. Then, the day came. His roommate had the webcam and he turned it on. I about fell over! He was gorgeous and sexy, with a muscular build and stunning green eyes. I was like a giddy school girl. Then, two days went by and no emails. Then, another three and I was heartbroken. My guess was that he had tons of other prospects lined up. Right when I was about ready to sign off of the dating site, I saw an email from him. It said, "I hope you get this and if you do, I am leaving you my number so we will never lose contact again." Apparently, he was using the free trial and the trial expired. Because I still had the service, I was able to get his email with his phone number. I called him immediately and what I heard on the other end was the most sexiest, sweet voice.

Two weeks later, we met face to face. When we hugged, I felt like I could stay in his arms forever. Here was my prince. Not only had I dated so many toads, but I had finally, kissed my sexy prince.

We have been together for over two years now and the wedding date has been set but may end up fluctuating unless I find a job pretty soon. In the meantime, I am a firm believer in second chances and our story of love ever after.

Congrats on finding your Prince!! Can't wait for the wedding! I'm sooo excited for you.

As for the roasted watermelon seeds, we buy them in bulk 'cos they're a popular snack over here.
I haven't tried roasting them myself but I found this link for the recipe.
Where do you get that much raw seeds to roast??

Here's the link.
