Winner part II!

So last time I wrote about how D has been winning things on the radio. Recently I have also started winning things! About a month ago, I took the kids and my niece Breezy to the County Fair. This year they had free admission to the venue, you just had to pay for rides, food, etc. (I guess in years past you've had to pay to get in? Don't know, I'd never been there before.) Anyway, as we walked among the booths and displays, I was asked, "Do you want a free massage?" I'm no fool (and anyone who answers yes to that question is a fool in my book!)so I stepped up to the booth, filled out a form and sat down for what turned out to be seven minutes of heaven! Thankfully, they had a game and lollipops to keep the kids entertained while Mommy zoned in the massage chair! And Breezy was a fantastic help keeping the kids close by, too. So after the massage they told me I was being entered in a drawing for a free chiropractic evaluation and adjustment. Cool, thanks for the massage, and off we go. A few booths down, "Do you want free Mary Kay products?" Well my answer to this was a bit more guarded, being the tom-boy that I am. I said, "What do you have? I'm not big on makeup, usually." She showed me a bunch of products on the table. Lucky for her (!) there was nail polish on the table, so I took that after filling out a form for a free "pampering session". And again off we went. The kids ride some rides, drank lots of water, and low and behold, there's a radio station with a spin the wheel game. They let all of us spin the wheel and everyone got something: stickers, little army men, discount tickets to the rodeo (it was a country station), etc.

But the real winning came just a few weeks ago...I got a free pampering session--we got to do Satin Hands (yes!). And then last week I got a call from the chiropractor saying I had won the free evaluation and two free adjustments. Cool. I'll take those too! LOL! I could get used to this!

Happy Anniversary!

I love my big D! He is awesome! Even though we were so busy on our anniversary (meetings etc.) that we decided to celebrate another time, he still got these gorgeous flowers and managed to surprise me with about 3 dozen dark chocolate strawberries (which he made!) I love you Big D!


Big D is in the habit of winning recently. He commutes every morning and while driving, there is a trivia contest that he and his carpool buddy are becoming the masters of. Last week Devin won twice, so we now have tickets to see the new Harry Potter movie and Hairspray. In the past he has won tickets to see the Fantastic Four sequel, as well as a production of Damn Yankees, and the funniest--a DVD and CD combo of Dirty Dancing!
