The El Bee stocking on the Yahoo group really got my blood pumping! My hands are still shaking! I have no money to spend but these are El Bees and after the week I have been though I figure I deserve them. This is the best I have felt in DAYS.

So now to wait and see if my email was fast enough!

I know I wasn't really prepared because I thought it would be just diapers - which I don't need. I sent an e-mail about the woolly bully, but I'm sure I was too slow.

LOL... me too! I feel like I am high or something. I think that was even more exciting than HC!

Waiting to see if I got anything either... how long do you have to wait normally?

Good luck ladies! I showed supreme self-control and didn't try for any of them this time. I have spent way to much money on dipes in the last couple of weeks. I agree, these kinds of stockings can be such a rush!

If you got I will take it. I heart orange!

I'm hoping I wasn't too slow. I had everything set and Holden woke up so I ran to get him and then sent the email ... so I'm sure I missed it! I'm just hoping that maybe lots of people were actually reading the descriptions, I only read the sizes!

I hope I get one. I've been having the worst time getting to my hotmail account so I used my new backup account outlook. I hope it's just as fast or faster I'm still shaking! LOL

So what numbers did everyone else go for? I tried for #13, but I doubt that I was fast enough.

Holli, I asked for 12 too - I bet you were faster!!! Yesterday was an awful day - in fact I'm still in a funk - I know any of these would cheer me up!!!

What time did you send for 13, I tried for 13, 14 and 22. What time did you all send the email to see who got it! Maybe we can figure it out ourselves.

Good luck girls! I have to say that I LOVE how Laura gives everyone that gets one just one. I think that is so darn fair. YK? It lets everybody have a little love.

I tried for #3, then regretted that I hadn't asked for 12. Not like I would have gotten either . . .

I asked for the first qualities... and then I sent another email asking for #12 in case I didn't get any of the firsts.

i didn't know that...never did this before! so, if you asked for more than one, and you were 1st, how would that work...would she ask you what your 1st choice was? i just listed them in order of her numbering system, not my preferences.

but hey, probably didn't get any! then again, SOMEONE had to and we all think we were too slow

So if we asked for two we will only get one?

That's ok, seeing as I've never felt the Elbee love.
