So Grateful

Okay guys, I could not be more excited right now.  Like I really, really could not be more excited.  I feel like I'm dreaming.  Holy cow.

So, you know John & Sherry over at Young House Love, right?  I'm sure you do.  Everyone does.  They are pretty much amazing.  So, they host all these giveaways.  I always enter because I figure, someone has to win.  Well.....

Today I opened my email and noticed I had an email from John.  Strange.  We don't know each other in real life.  I'm sure they've probably never seen my little blog.  But there it was, an email from John.  I won one of their giveaways.  Holy cow guys.  I screamed.  I almost fell out of my chair.  At work.  All of this was at work people.  I'm sure I made quite the scene.

I know what you're thinking.  Get a grip on yourself Mary, haven't you ever won anything before?  Well, sure I have.  A free slushy at breakfast with Santa when I was a kid.  A CD or two.  Free beer and pizza at a local bar for happy hour.  Honestly, I'm sure I was fairly excited over those things too.  But....  If you read Young House Love fairly regularly, you may remember that their last giveaway was for $500 from  Well, the Mary that won, yeah that was me.

I'm dancing guys.  Maybe not literally, but there is some serious jumping up and down going on in my brain.  I can't wait for my husband to get off work so I can tell him.  Stay tuned to see what crazy DIY shenanigans we get into with our gift card.  It's going to be great.

So huuuuuuuuuge thanks to John & Sherry and  This girl is feeling pretty grateful on this Thursday afternoon.

    1. Thanks! It's still sinking in. I know, I'm always totally jealous when other people win sweet stuff.
