I'm not a person who typically has good luck. I'm not saying I'm cursed with bad luck either, but I just don't normally win things on the reg, if ya catch my drift.
Last week, a radiology clinic we refer patients to invited our office out for their semi-annual happy hour. Lots of other practices would be there, and they were offering apps and drinks on the house. I usually don't do things like this. Buuut, a couple of my co-workers coerced me into going. I thought, what could it hurt? I'll go have a couple of drinks and mingle with my co-workers off the clock for a bit.
I got there and had to sign a little ticket that would be entered into a drawing for a door prize later that night. As I'm enjoying my free margarita, I heard my name called. Whaaaaa?! I won something?! I go up front and am handed my prize, which is a $50 Kohl's gift card.
Then, this past Monday, as I was sitting at my desk wishing away the day because I hate Mondays... I got an email that I won $1000 in cold hard cash from Bonnie's blog. I may or may not have started hyperventilating at my desk. I thought I was going to cry and vomit all at the same time. But in a good way, obvs. ;) I'm happy to say I'll be using that money to pay off one credit card and the rest of that bad boy is going into savings. Because I hate to admit this, but I don't even have a savings account right now. So, now I will have one for emergencies and it makes me feel soooo good.
Last night, I participated in Neely's Trendy on Twitter party for Boardroom Salon. I was running a little late to the party since I was finishing up dinner, but I made it. And thank goodness I did because I won a Benchmark package. Which is basically "the works". Obviously, I'll be gifting it to Nate. He's going to love the pampering, I know it!
Last week, Meg had been talking all about the Blog Elevated conference that's going down next month. I wanted to go, but I just couldn't put down $250 for a ticket at the moment. Then, I heard they were giving away codes to get the ticket for just $99 on twitter. I still decided I should just save my money and go next year instead. Well, last night, as I was browsing twitter about to go to bed for the night, I saw that they mentioned they were possibly giving away free tickets. I thought I may as well try to win one right, what can it hurt???
The 3rd and final free ticket they were giving, I was one second away from winning. Seriously, the person who won replied one second before me. I was a little sad. :( But, then it was announced they were giving away one more free ticket for the night. And the winner was ME!
Y'all. I've won 4 amazing prizes in the last week. Who thinks I should go buy a lottery ticket???
