A Winning Streak!

I have noticed that lately I have been winning things lately. That is very cool. You see, before I got married I would enter all these things - sweepstakes, giveaways, contests, etc., and I would win on a pretty regular basis. I even did it during our engagement time period. We went to several bridal shows and I would register at anything and everything, not really planning on winning. And then I won a free grooms cake, a discount on the wedding cake from the same bakery, a discount on our rental car, and several other things.

Then we got married and the winning stopped.; I didn't notice it for a few years and then my grandmother-in-law mentioned it and I realized that I hadn't won anything since that time. I chalked it up to that I had already won my fair portion and now it was time for others to win.

Then I started blogging and entering contests and giveaways again. Of course I always enter for the fun of it, never guessing that I'd actually win anything. Well a short while ago, over at Confessions of an Organized Homeschool Mom she had a Super Duper Giveaway for a Labeler. And let me tell you it was one heck of a labeler. So I entered, knowing that the chances of me winning were quite slim, but what the heck - it never hurts to try. Guess what?

I WON!!!

I was floored! After all these years I finally win something and it's this awesome labeler. I was shocked! So then I got an email from Bethany and she told me the one advertised was not available so I ended up getting an even BETTER one. The one I actually received was the Brother PT-1090 Electronic Labeling System. It is awesome!

Then I entered another contest over at Homeschooling Hearts & Minds and entered her contests during her Birthday Bash. I entered in a bunch of them, and I won a second time! I won a Math Curriculum for 2nd grade. Isn't that wonderful!

I also won a new book from Beyond the Silver and Gold, which is totally cool. I have been searching for new Christian authors to read, since I've read pretty much everything my favorite authors (Bodie and Brock Theone) have written. And over the spring and summer I had read a few books from Randy Singer and Robert Whitlow, but haven't had extra cash to go buy a new book so I decided to enter her giveaway to win this book.

So when you see a giveaway or contest and it's something you'd like to have or could use it or know someone else that could use it enter. You never know, you might be the next one on a winning streak!

I have been entering every homeschool contest I see for over a year and have just won once, a couple weeks ago. There were 6 winners, so I don't know if that counts for good luck!

So you have me thinking I need to enter more contests. I would LOVE some free stuff.
