I'm a Winner!

Important fact: I never win anything. I was always the kid in elementary school that went home with the consolation tootsie roll prize after rousing games of BINGO where other children got walkmen or free sodas or passes for free homework assignments.

This week, however, the fates turned in my favor. Here's how: I regularly read a blog called "Real Mom Kitchen" that is written by a woman who posts one new recipe each day. The cool thing about this blog is that her recipes are for food that people might actually want to eat and (better yet) for food you can find the ingredients for, rather than crazy gourmet stuff that most of us don't have the time to make, even if we could muster the inclination. Anyway, the blog is cool, so I read it. A few weeks ago, they had a giveaway for a "summer family fun pack". All you had to do to enter was comment on the post, so I did, not thinking anything of it, but figuring that I may as well try.

Lo and behold, the next week, I got an email from the blogger saying that I'd won! Wahoo! Here's what I got in the mail a week later:
Free movie passes and candy, Bees' baseball game tickets and t-shirts, Hogle Zoo tickets and stuffed elephants (so cute!), and a digital camera! Did I say WAHOO?!

I'm thoroughly enjoying my prizes and looking forward to having some free fun with friends this summer. In fact, I've already been enjoying the camera. Here are a few pictures I've taken of my summer adventures thus far (keep in mind, I've only had the camera for a week, so I don't have anything TOO exciting to document...yet).

Congratulations on winning! I never win anything either. Maybe it is my turn to win now.

YAY! I'm glad you won. We can't wait to (hopefully) see you this weekend or at least in July. Thanks for posting a picture of you and your cute sweetie so we'll recognize you when we see you. Can I come to Utah when Holly does in August? Sounds like too much fun to miss out on.

I'm so excited for you! And I agree with Holly. Your hair is very long and pretty! I'm excited to see more pictures with your new camera.
