All I had to do was be one of the first 35 bloggers to respond to this invitation. Luckily I saw a Twitter post by the one and only Bud Royer of Round Top's Famous Royers Cafe!! (thanks Bud!) alerting everyone to the urgency. I sent my email, I waited nervously, I refreshed my email at least 20 times before the email came back that said CONGRATS! You are among the first 35!!!
YIPEE!! I squealed like a little girl, clapping my hands, and called my mother first thing!!!!!
