So Derek and I tend to be lucky people. I never really noticed it until my mother pointed it out the other day. We tend to win a lot of free stuff and I am not even sure how it happens.
I am always that person who wants to win things. I think it's fun and exciting and gives you opportunities to do or have things that you wouldn't have spent the money on yourself. For most of my life I haven't won free things and it has only been recently that things having started to come my way. I remember being at our HS grad night for all the seniors and wishing I would win of the cool prizes. No such luck. Grateful that my luck has changed, for now.
Sevendust tickets. I was getting ready for my band concert, I know...so cool, and I was listening to the local rock station in Appleton, WI. They had a contest to win tickets to see Sevendust in Milwaukee so I called up and actually won! Did I go? No! I didn't have many friends who liked "hardcore" music and I wasn't too familiar with them either. Did I pick up the tickets anyways? Of course. It was the first thing I had won. I had to have proof. What did I do that night? Went to a church dance. I am cool to the max.
Tickets to Kirby Heybourne. I had just pulled in to my work parking lot after a lunch break. That weekend Derek and I had plans to go on a "babymoon". Kirby was in town doing a comedy show and I love comedy so I called in to win. I won...obviously since this is what the post is about. ha I had my parents run to Trolley Square and pick up the tickets. Now since we already had plans and Derek didn't seem interested in going I told my family to use them. Did they? No. Oh well.
Justin Bieber. My biggest win yet! I mean I won two tickets to Justin Bieber. I was dirving home from work and called in to win these. The problem here is that I had just won those Kirby tickets less than 6 months before from the same radio station so I wasn't sure if I could win another prize. I thought I would try anyways. When they said I was the winner I told them my name was Martha Ellsworth. I just panicked and that is what came out of my mouth. Anyways, since these tickets were in high demand I had to show a drivers license to pick these up. I asked my sister to text me a picture of her DL. She did. Derek printed it off and picked up the tickets. They weren't too happy that it was a copy but they handed the tickets over anyways! Did I go? No! haha Is this my trend or what? In my defense it was 2 days after my due date. I knew if Brooklyn wasn't already born the last thing I would want to be doing was getting my grove on a a JB concert. So what did we do? We sold those tickets for $230.00 and bought some stuff for Brooklyn. Part of me wishes I could've gone and screamed like a teenage girl but it just wasn't in the cards for me.
Covered Goods. So I have seen these new nursing covers everywhere and I have wanted one so badly. This blog, Hello Little Scout, was hosting a give away for one of these covers a couple of weeks ago. I entered and I won. Guys I am so excited about this. New mom much? ha But really it'll be so handy and useful. I fully look forward to getting it in the mail. It truly is Christmas in July. This is the one thing so far that I will actually use.
Now Derek has only one win so far and I don't even know the whole back story but basically he won a snowboard off of a radio station in CA. That's how he decided to learn to snowboard. He has some catching up to do but it was a snowboard after all...ha Maybe he wins?
