I wish!  I have won 2 thing locally though- Darling Husband won my ering by writing about “why I deserve it the most” -it was a local contest on the radio.  I won some tickets once to a local big-time waterpark.  Those were both in the last couple years…  it is something!  I would love to win a trip though!!!!

Once, in first grade, I won a bike. It was at a 4th of july bike rally in our neighborhood. They were picking the name and I literally knew they were going to pick me. I walked up there before my name even came out of their mouth. I’m very… aggressive lol!

I haven’t but one of my best friends is a “sweeper” (she enters sweepstakes as a hobby). She’s won SOOO much stuff since she started over a year ago. Her biggest win was a Kawasaki motorcycle worth more than $5k but she’s also won tons of clothes and accessories for her daughter, expensive home goods (she won a $300+ area rug a few weeks ago), popular tech gadgets, etc.  She’s a Stay-At-Home Mom so she considers “sweeping” to be her job. It takes time but it can pay off in the end.

@AudzinLuv: Aww man, I want to know what you won!

I have never won anything.  Even at after prom in high school, they claimed everyone won something.  I didn’t.  Sad.

@bakerella: & @Bichon Frise: It was definitely a crazy time!  Made a lot of mistakes, should’ve invested some, and now have nothing to show for it except some fond memories, lol. 

I’ve always wondered if people actually win those contests on store receipts where you call or fill out a survey online.

I’ve won a lot through blogs over the last few years.  I wrote about winning my wedding gown today on the main page.  I won a few more things that I’ll probably blog about in the future.

Through design blogs, I’ve won countless pillows, a beautiful ipad cover, gift certifercates to use online (most of my Le Creuset stuff was bought with those), a Shabby Apple dress (fit was terrible, I donated it). 

I’m totally hooked on blog giveaways.  I love them!


I read about people winning trips and I’m so curious about how they do it.


EDIT: I forgot!  I did win a trip once!  I won a VIP trip to Bonnaroo back when it was a very new festival.  I won it from a radio station and they also gave me a ton of camping gear.
