A Great Day to Win $1000

Today was my work party. They have one in the summer for the whole family and the one at Christmas for just me and Oliver. Addison got to ride on this huge shark blow-up slide with her dad. And she got to sit in the cow train, but she isn't quite big enough to be pulled by the tractor this year - she will be next year! She also got to have some of her first snow cone and pick up other kids cotton candy off the ground.

At the end of the party the company always draws door prize winners. We have been to three summer parties and four Christmas parties and never won. They typically draw anywhere from 7 - 12 gift cards and prizes. $100, $250, $500, Lowes, Costco, Visa gift cards, flat screen TVs, car DVD players, etc., etc., etc.

As we were getting ready to go today Oliver said that this is the last time we are going if we don't win.

Well - his ultimatum paid off - I WAS THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER OF $1000!

Yep - it was definitely the highlight of my day! AWESOME.

Oliver thought we should buy mulch...not happening.

We are considering furniture for our living room, a new laptop, or something that is super fun that we normally wouldn't buy like a lawn mower. I know - big dreamers huh? Feel free to give your vote for what we should buy. (When my friend Kirsten teaches how to put polls on the blog then I'll post one so you can all vote!)

Nicely done!!! That's definitely exciting.

And I'm on your side 100%...that's $1000 for something fun!

My vote would be furniture or an evening away for just the two of you. Stay at a nice hotel and treat yourself to a fancy dinner.

Nicole said...

Agreed!! Something fun... get some furniture and save a little for yourself. For each of you to spend on something to splurge. Get a massage or a mani/pedi or a facial or something relaxing. Congrats on the win. I've never won something like that. That's awesome!

What great news! How about a trip to Seattle? With that kind of money you could actually eat at the restaurant at the top of the Space there is a lot of mulch up here...just saying...
