Being Crazy Pays Off!

So I posted the other day that I was on a contest entering binge, and was *hoping* that I would win at least one - AND I DID! Our local shopping plaza called The Promenade was holding a contest to win 4 VIP Tickets to their annual Christmas Tree Lighting and a complimentary dinner before hand. They announced on their Facebook today that I WAS THE WINNER!

I think I knew deep down I was destined to win, it was weird. I kept refreshing my Facebook this morning waiting for the winner to be announced and as I was doing this, they posted MY NAME as the winner. I squealed with delight and literally skipped into the office letting every know what I had won. The event is tomorrow night and I am so.excited.I.just.can' Ok, phew.

I want to arrive early and get some pretty pictures of my lil family in front of the tree while its still semi-light out so we can use it in our Christmas card if it turns out well. They haven't given me the details on the dinner yet, but from what I know it's for 4 people (not including Car) and they do fireworks, music, Santa, the whole she-bang.

I loove winning. I WIN I WIN I WIN I WIN. I really need to get this out of my system. It's a wonderful feeling. I hear from time to time that I am just a lucky person. I don't believe luck has anything to do with it. 1. You have to enter / buy the ticket before you can win, and 2. You have to BELIEVE it. Like really believe it will happen and don't second guess. If you truly believe it can happen, it will. That's my secret ya'll.

I love the holidays as much as I love winning. I love that my extended family is here and even though work is absolutely fecking insane, I am surrounding myself with my family, cozy dinners, and holiday cheer and I am smiling from ear to ear. You will not bring me down world!!

AND to top off a great day, I wrote two good accounts and got a free vacation to Hawaii!! Andy's parent's have never been to Hawaii before and they are coming out to visit Jan 18-Feb 1 and were adamant about going to Hawaii while they are here. We told them we can't afford the tickets right now, and they bought our tickets!!!!!! So we're going to Hawaii for 6 days in January with Andy's parents, Andy & Cart. I was just there in August. It's an inexpensive flight (compared to others) and we always stay on the North Shore. I can't wait to go again.

Yay for good days and winning and family and the Holidays. I would post a picture but I'm using my Aunt's laptop and I don't have any to share here. Andy and I are busy prepping for a garage sale this weekend so we can make some moolah to do some xmas shopping on black Friday.

Ok, I gotta get my little one to bed. I'm blogging at my parent's and have lots to do at home.

Night all!!!!
