I'm a WINNER!!!

So, have you ever had your name randomly selected somewhere and won a prize?? I don't think I ever had, until just recently, that is. Did you get all excited because you won something?? Yeah, me too!! Although, I must say, this was the biggest let down ever!!
Well, when I was home at Thanksgiving my mom and I went out shopping and came across a drawing box at a store, Horrack's. Neither one of us had ever had our names drawn, but we decided to try the whole name drawing thing again. The next day I received a phone call saying I was the winner!! I was pretty excited (because it's a neat store) and my mom was kind'a jealous. :o) We went the following day to pick up my prize. This is what my prize was . . .

Can you believe it?!?!? A "Party Plain Santa" with a retail value of $59.99!!! Amazing! I didn't know if I should have said I didn't want it or ask for money or what! My mom told me right away that she was happy for me - she was just glad that she didn't receive it!! :o) Now I have to figure out what to do with it. I'm not sure if it will go on E-bay or if i should give it as a gift...who knows!! Although now I can say that I have won something.

hahahaha!!! That's funny. I was just at a bridal expo and I signed up for everything. All I get now is random phone calls asking if I would like more info on their products or company. It's so annoying. All I wanted was their free stuff and not have to pay for it!
