I'm on Twitter.
And I've only been following about 4 people, and one of them is Soleil Moon Frye.
I can't remember how I encountered her account, but I thought- "How sweet! She actually replies to her fans!" I grew up absolutely smitten with Punky Brewster. I wished Henry would adopt me too, and I could grow up sisters with Punky, and friends with Cherry and Alan, and even that snotty Margo. I'm remembering these names without referencing- so maybe they're misspelled...
A few days after the tomato incident I happened to see this tweet from Soleil: Need great get away.U still have chance 2 win b-day gift from me to you @phvegas is giving 2 nights+fun. http://www.thelittleseed.com/blog/
Its a birthday present from me to you. You guys have been so amazing and supportive. Here’s a chance to win a fun get away similar to my B-day celebration. We will fly you to Las Vegas, where the wonderful Planet Hollywood is going to be giving an amazing 2 night stay, limo transpo from the airport to the hotel , 1 spa treatment, 2 buffets of choice at Spice Market and 2 meals of choice at Planet Dailies.
Share your stories on why this get away is perfect for you and much needed!!!
I hadn't decided to write a post on here about the accident yet (still felt too embarassed) so I thought I'd vent to Soleil Moon Frye. Naturally.

I could tell you my reasons, but you probably won’t believe me.
I’ll start with the basic reason- outnumbered by kiddies! They are 3, 2 and 2 years old. All girls (Yes, the 2-year-olds are twins, no I’m not crazy enough to actually plan two toddlers at once.) My husband is a full-time student and we are livin’ on love. Okay, AND student loans.
The sob-story reason I need a little R&R: Tuesday afternoon the tomatoes I was canning exploded on me and I got 2cd degree burns, and 8 stitches on my hand where I landed on a jar remnant. Luckily, I got all taken care of with a nice ambulance ride to the ER. Unluckily, my husband and friend both had to work all week (we don’t live by family) and I’ve been taking care of three sick kids (fevers, runs, and one of those weird all-over baby rashes) with one throbbing unuseable hand and a burned arm and face. Okay AND armpit.
The Aww-cute reason we would love Vegas: We went there on our honeymoon, nad our anniversary is September 6th.
Maybe this would all be more convincing with pictures… but- ew.
Guess what I found in my inbox last night!
You recently shared with us your reasons for needing a trip to Las Vegas with your husband and we agree, a weekend in the desert is just what the doctor ordered...and we're gonna send you! We could only pick one winner for this give-away. It just seemed really perfect for you. We fell in love with the fact that you hurt yourself doing something as fantastic as jarring organic tomatoes.
Please send me your contact information so that I may send it on to Planet Hollywood.
You can set the dates at your convenience.
