I've always been a sort of lucky person, but only in aspects of my life that didn't include winning things. I suppose I've broken my streak somewhat this Christmas season.
First, I won a Thanksgiving Platter from Our Name is Mud. That's just super awesome and I don't even care WHO you are. I won something!
Lorrie seems to always have some really nifty give-away going on and I played along on another occasion - just for fun, really - I never expected to win anything again.
But, I did:
How cute is THAT? It's a votive holder and I love it to pieces!
I love all things Christmassy and I love all things free, so my heart grew about three sizes larger when I saw my new Christmas addition.
Okay, I think I've mentioned that the Evil Twin and I don't exchange gifts to each other, but I did buy myself something:
We already have two of these grills. One is a smaller one we bought when they were first available. Then, my parents' bought a large one and didn't like it, so they gave that one to us. We liked the grills, but clean up is a drag. I'd be scrubbing for days sometimes to get one clean. This one has removable and dishwasher safe plates, thereby making my life infinitely easier. Seeing as how we run a load of dishes almost every day, we could cook with it every evening if I plan it just right.
I DID get a little something for the Evil Twin too, although it came a few weeks ago. It's a vinyl figure:
Bossy Bear was created by one of the ET's favorite artists, David Horvath. We like to call Sissy "Bossy Bear" because, well, she is so awfully bossy!
The Evil Twin and I (along with Bossy Bear) will be spending the day at Walmart today. I'm happy to have the help, even as I anticipate the trip to be sheer hell on wheels.
Wish us luck! :-)
