Chicago Sweet Treat Winners – Holiday Blog Party

Happy New Year Chocolate

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope 2016 is a fantastic year for all of you!

On December 12th, The Chicago Files hosted a, “Holiday Blog Party“.  I am so grateful to everyone who attended! I hope you had as much fun as I did, and that you met new bloggers, caught up on some posts from your favorite bloggers, and generally had a good ‘ol time.

I had mentioned there would be a few winners of some, “Chicago sweets”.  Each blogger who posted a link to their blog post was entered.  We picked four winners to receive a treat!  Here they are:

  1.  Joanne at Top of JC’s Mind;
  2. Donna at;
  3. Helen at; and
  4. Lisa at

Congratulations, and perhaps there will be more blog parties and surprises in 2016!

    Thank you Cher, for the awesome blog party, the holiday wishes, and wow, just in case that wasn’t enough, I won stuff too!!! I love, love, love winning stuff and December was my month – I won like 5 things – now, if only the lottery would get with the program. lol 😉 Not holding my breath on that one. But the luckiest day of all was the day we found each other in this giant virtual haystack, dear friend!
    Wishing you all the very best there is in 2016 and thank you again!!! So excited, love surprises too! 🙂
    Hope this weekend treats you kindly. Big hugs, Donna xo
