Feelin' Lucky

I have to say it, I never win. I just don't. Example: I played Bunco with school friends for 4 years. That's 48 games and three chances to win per game. I had 144 opportunities to win a prize. I did once. It was an extra joke prize. I just don't win.

Till tonight.

Tonight my school hosted a Fall Festival. We always have a basket raffle and silent auction. I put my tickets in a science basket and quickly told myself, "Silly! Uncross your fingers, that doesn't work anyway." Guess what?

It does. It must. How else to explain that I won a basket full o f science toys for Sloane. One hundred and fifteen dollars worth of science gear for five bucks in a raffle. Pretty cool! Plus, I won a bunch of goodies in the silent auction. Of course, I had to pay for them, but they were great deals and all the money went to my school. How great is that?

I told you. I'm feelin' lucky.

Anybody got a giveaway I can enter?

Wow! Congrats! That's much more fun than the one time I won a raffle (a wine tour... and I don't really like wine) so at least your prize is going to be well received and enjoyed!

(I also just wasted $3 in Las Vegas at the penny slots so I still feel like that raffle win was the only one I'll get.)

That is awesome! I love that feeling you get when you win. Sloane looks adorable and her eyes are just electric.

PS. Go to Frenchie and Flea next week. They are doing a giveaway Mon-Thur for the next 2 weeks to support their Handmade Holidays for various etsy shops!

Congratulations on your win! Sloane will certainly enjoy your win as will you. I love you!

You are one lucky chick, you are! How great was that?! And what a beautiful picture.... you've gotta' love those eyes!

Mind you, I won once. A trolling motor for a boat. Did I have a boat? Nah. Could I use a trolling motor? Nah. But the Little League could use the $1 I paid for the raffle ticket!

Congratulations! I know what you mean about not winning. We joke around here that if there were only 2 people in a contest, none of us would win. But...yesterday...I won a blog giveaway! I'll write about it soon. We are having a good weekend my friend!

Yippee for you!

I never win anything either. The only thing I ever remember winning was a box of chocolate covered almonds at a bowling alley once.

Oldies, but Goodies
