Meet Our Honeymoon Winner!

I was so excited to call Lissa B, this morning and give her the good news – she won our Sandals Resorts Honeymoon Giveaway.  Her online ballot was chosen at random from almost 15,000 entries!

Thanks to everyone who entered – we’ll be having another fun giveaway soon.

Want to know more about our winner?  Here is an introduction, in her own words:

Lissa & Chris

Our first meeting is a fairy tale for true sports fans.  We met at a West Virginia vs. Maryland football game.  West Virginia won and Chris will never let me forget it.

I am 24 years old and a graduate of the University of Maryland.  Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, I came to College Park to run for the Terrapins’ Varsity Women’s Track & Cross Country teams.  Still an avid runner, I now works as a Proposal Coordinator for Planned Systems International in Columbia, Md. and am earning my Masters in Journalism at Georgetown University.

Chris is 28 years old and a graduate of West Virginia University and Florida Coastal School of Law.  Chris grew up in Charleston, West Virginia and has always been a huge fan of the WVU Mountaineers.  After law school, Chris moved to D.C. to be closer to me and is an Associate Attorney for Schlachman, Belsky and Weiner in Upper Marlboro, Md.

Chris moved Washington, D.C. in May 2008.  Each day after work, we would meet to go to the gym together.  For weeks, Chris had been complaining of a knee injury and cutting his runs short because of the pain.

I planned to spend the 4th of July in the Hamptons with my girl friends, so Chris surprised me the week before with a weekend trip to Annapolis.  After checking into our bed and breakfast on Friday night, Chris suggested taking a walk down by the water. He led me onto a pier overlooking the historic district and the Naval Academy and suddenly his knee gave out!

At first I was so worried about getting him to a hospital that she didn’t realize the ring box in his hand.  He had been faking the knee injury all along and there at sunset, Chris asked me to be his wife and I said yes!

Our wedding will take place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on July 10, 2010.  The ceremony and reception will be held at the Pine Lakes Country Club.

Please join us in wishing Lissa the best with her upcoming wedding and congratulations on winning!
