I’ve had friends win contests, I’ve won a cruise that I didn’t end up going on… oh and I won a mountain bike in an art contest lol (I thought that one was fixed- they proved me wrong)

Nope – the most I’ve won was a wii at my husbands christmas party ๐Ÿ™‚

But I do have a friend that won a couple of 3-4 day trips by playing a bunch of online sweepstakes.

My dad won a new Firebird convertible in a drawing that was a fundraiser for a local charity.  I was about 11 years old at the time and tried to convince him to keep it and let me have it when I got my license.  No such luck. ๐Ÿ™‚

I just got called saying I’m in the final drawing for a trip to Vegas to watch a UFC fight, woot woot! Still, there are 100 other finalists, but at least I made it past the mega-drawing ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve also won a weekend trip for a fitness contest, but that was more work than luck.

I’m the Bee that @Lovebird724 was talking about!  haha.  I literally win alllllll. theeee. tiiiiiime. 

I’ve won wedding related items: A Bachelorette party to NYC, Wedding bands for the FH and myself, a Gift Certifiicate to Mary Kay for myself and some bridesmaids, i won a Gift card from the Bee for our STDS too.

Random stuff includes a 50/50 that was over $2000, Beach chairs/umbrella/blanket/cooler combo, Books, Fabric, Random other 50/50s…

The most I’ve ever won…. A 4 day trip to Cozumel – all inclusive including air fare. 

So people DO win!!  If I go somewhere with a group of people, someone in the group tends to win if I don’t. 

I read an article one time that said that people who believe they are lucky, tend to be luckier.  So think lucky thoughts and never give up!!! Good Luck!!

@SandyToes: Oooh, I remember your posts (or there’s even another bee on here who’d won just about every thing under the sun, hehe). Sprinkle some of your fairy dust my way on Saturday, I’d sure love to go to Vegas with the Mr ;0)

I’ve never won but I was a finalist in last year’s Budget Savvy Bride contest on Project Wedding. We had to write an article on how to budget for a wedding and they picked mine as one of the final 10 (the editor from Snippet & Ink picked me!!!! *swoon*)

I didn’t end up winning (the prize was Amazon giftcards) but it was still cool. The article is still on Project Wedding.
