Lucky me....

Ok, I'm not normally one who wins anything. I never buy scratch tix because the most I've ever won is maybe $2. I have coworkers and family members who win $100 here and $2200 there!! It makes me so mad. I'm happy that they won but I wish I could too!

Anyway, there was a fundraiser this weekend for someone I know who has the big C. She's related to my aunt's husband. She's a great person and it's so sad she has to go through what she's going through. Nuf said. I gave my mom some money to buy chances at the event because I was in Maine. I didn't expect to win a thing, I just wanted to help out.

My mom called and said I won a $25 gc to a restaurant and I was psyched. She put all of our names on the tix so we all had a chance of winning. Then I got a phone call saying that my son's gf won a big margarita basket (dang - shouldn't that be mine? just kidding).

I told my lucky coworker and said I wondered where my third lucky thing was. Then I got a phone call last night that my dh won a $50 to a restaurant!!! I'm very excited but not foolish enough to think if I buy a scratch ticket I'll win.....

How lucky are you?

I've won a few things. A Mike Lowell AllStar 2007 official batting practice jersey. A few little internet contests. And I won BIG on Blingo once -- $750! It never gets old! =)

Oh yey !!! hooray for you! Why don't you swap your prize for that margarita basket ;-) hehe ...

I am rarely lucky. I won over $100 from playing bingo on the cruise ship. But nothing else after that ;-). Crossing my fingers, toes and eyes for the buttonfarm draw HAHA !!

ps .. yes, those boxes were the favors.

pps .. oops, too late ;-). I will uncross them. TBF already has a winner.

Wow, you're on a roll! Lots of good eating and drinking going on for you guys pretty soon! I'd be so psyched :)

I have had luck in the past with winning stuff. I've won trips to the Bahamas (as a teenager) and Dallas (a few years ago). I've won some smaller stuff, books, movies, tickets, things like that. And thanks to Dawn using me as her sign-up at Blingo, when she won that 750 last year, I won too! :)

Hope you win something else soon!

Yay!! I have never won anything big on the scratch off tickets either. I have won a few blog giveaways.
