Hip Winners

I was hesitant to use today with my #3 being the winner all the time...I mean that's not very random. I was then going to have my husband pick a number on his way to work, but I wasn't up in time. So, I tried it again and it chose #1. WHAT???? I never thought the 1st or the last person would ever win. If ever I enter a giveaway and I'm going to be the first comment, I always wait a few hours and come back. Well, not today. The lucky number was 1 and the lucky winner is THE ROYAL FAMILY!!!!!
