#RE2012 - The Finale and Winner!

Can you believe it? It's already over! When Emmy first approached me with the idea of doing another Review Extravaganza for 2012 I thought...WAIT. What?! It's already that time??

Yep. It was. And it's over now. HOW fast does time fly? Really rather ridiculous in my opinion.

We've said goodbye to some hosts and hello to some new hosts. We've read the recaps and watched the links grow. I was so excited to see the number of entries for the prizes! It was legit, man! So many numbers! I know, I know. I'm lame.

Also, I've been sporadic about reading reviews...this season has been so busy and now that Christmas is over I'm hoping it will slow down. There are a couple things that have been occupying my brain's time this last week...or 3 and will continue for the unforeseeable future...but hopefully that will be done with soon.

All that to say, I'm sorry if I've missed your review. I promise to try to make it up to you. **hangs head in shame.** Bad blogger!

Hey, look, it's all our cute buttons!!
