"W" is for Winner

I feel like such a loser about what a blog slacker I have been lately.

So, I figured after way too long of a break, I'd let everyone know that indeed I actually am a winner. In the very literal sense.

A few days ago a package arrived in the mail. I am one of those people that loves to get mail. Even going to get the mail is a daily ritual that I enjoy. Getting anything other than bills is a true joy. A full on package...even more so.

When I noticed that it was addressed to me, I immediately thought it must have been a late birthday present. But then I couldn't think of who in Franklin, Tennessee would be remembering my birthday. (More on my birthday later)

I crossed my fingers and wondered if that was where the Fairy Godmother of Potty Training lived and hoped that she was lending me her wand. I just knew if I could wave it with a few chants of "Bibbity, Bobbity, Poo", my life would be instantly easier. (More on potty training later)

As I opened it up and discovered these items, I finally remembered.

I'm a winner.

Remember this giveaway? Well, you're looking at the goods that this lucky girl won.

I actually felt a little starstruck as I opened it. Kind of like when I touched Jordan Knight's hand at one of the 5 New Kids on the Block concerts that I went to back in the day. Okay, not really. I really did touch Jordan Knight's hand...the feeling...different.

It is fun to be a winner though...especially of autographed items from a band that Jerry and I have followed for such a long time.

Thanks for making this loser a winner for a moment, Boo Mama and Third Day.

Oh, and if you feel like trying your luck at a giveaway...Missy has one going on here.

There is something special about that little feeling of being star struck. Last night we had a little encounter that opened that world up for my Lily.

You brought back those special memories of being rushed in the madness of the New Kid's on the Block concert at the Ohio State Fair 1989ish. Ahh..such memories!

Did you know that NKOTB has a new song out? I listened for about 12 seconds then turned it. Not even close to "Please Don't Go Girl".
