Congratulations Alli! You are the proud recipient of a totally random, somewhat useful, Californian treasure!
And thanks to all of you who participated, thought about participating, or could have cared less about participating. You all are the best.
And for all of you history buffs out there...anyone? Anyone? Here is a bit of background info on the question:
California officially became a state on September 9, 1850. Millard Fillmore had been President of the United States for two months, having succeeded Zachary Taylor in July of 1850 after President Taylor passed away.
So there you have it. You can now answer that question on Trival Pursuit.
You are welcome.
And now I am going to bed because somehow a hay bale has set up home in my chest and I feel like I could cough up a lung. Fun times, people.
Stay tuned for some crazy, wacky pics from the girls trip to California...
