I Actually Won!!

Hey!!!! Remember when I wrote this>>> post about being determined to win Lady Antebellum tickets off the radio????? Well......(drum roll please) 

I WON!!!!!!!!!!!

Totally unexpected even though I did spend the whole week calling the station. Here's what happened!

Each day at 7am, 10, 2pm and 5 they gave out tickets to caller #10. So yes, I had my phone alarm set two minutes before each hour and spent 30 minutes each time trying to get through.

One time I was caller #1, fail. The other thousand times the line would ring but no answer, fail. Then on Friday, the last day of the contest I got through! BUT they told me they had already given away tickets so instead they gave me an invite to the Christmas party giveaway they were having the next day, kinda fail.

At the next hour my friend Marie and I tried calling again and no answer. Marie figured that they had already picked a winner so we went to grab some food. I decided to call again to see if I could get my mom on the Christmas party invite list....

It started ringing...and the guy answered "Hello, The Eagle"
Me (casually): "Did you guys already pick someone for the Lady Antebellum tickets?"
DJ: "No...but I'm gonna pick you!"
Me: "What? Really? No way. Oh my gosh!!! (total freak out)"
DJ: "Yea really!"

Holy cow the coolest moment of my life!!!!!!! It was 30 minutes past the hour so I figured they had already picked a winner so I was not expecting it at all!!!!! Oh man it was so freakin awesome!!!! And I had to blog about it just because I had written here that I was going to win! Talk about determination!

So any who we went to the xmas party the next day to pick up my tickets and try to win $77,000 in prizes. We had to put numbers 1-8 in the winning order. 

The winner was supposed to win a car, snowmobile, gift cards, tickets and like a million other things...but nobody won. But they had free food and I got my tickets so I was happy :)

Thanks to the Eagle 101.5, can't wait till the concert!!!!!!!!

A Good Festive Weekend

This weekend was pretty fun and busy! I love the holiday season because there are so many fun events and every one comes together!

Friday night, Greg and I went to his neighborhood Christmas dinner which was super yummy. Then Saturday my work had their Christmas party at the country club (lucky!). They had giveaways (I didn't win) and they had casino games so we played blackjack all night. We were up $50,000...too bad it wasnt real money :(

My friend Kelly came into town, which is rare since she travels practically every weekend!! Luckily we were able to meet up for dinner and a little mall trip.
Kelly and I NYE 2011

 I HAD to grab a caramel apple from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, mmmmm my fav! 

So now I'm looking forward to this weekend, mainly because it's the weekend, but I'm sure something exciting and fun will happen again :) Oh and by the way, I decided I am DETERMINED!!!!!! to win Lady Antebellum tickets off the radio. I WILL be calling EVERY radio station SEVERAL times a day for each contest so I can be the WINNING CALLER!!! Wish me luck!

The Small Things

You know the term the grass is always greener on the other side? Well I believe that the grass is greener on the other side of our mind too. I've realized that I am the type of person that when something doesn't go the way I expected or planned, everything is ruined (exaggeration). I don't know if this is the spoiled child in me, the eccentric planner, detail oriented freak or just me being human. Whatever it is, I now have made it a goal to look at the brighter side of things. Here are a few small things that have made my life amazing lately :)

My lost UPS package showed up that had Sephora make up in it!!
And xmas shopping for others!
Beautiful Roses 
My cutie kittie!
Treats my co-worker brings me :) and the breakfast served at work every day in December!
The little Christmas tree my parents and I put up this year
The beautiful sunsets and views Utah has every day!
Christmas lights! They make me feel so bright inside!

and YOU! For reading my blog :) Thanks!
