So I just got a call from my company’s employee credit union and they informed me that I won a contest! I didn’t even know I entered a contest. I guess if you started any new service through them within a certain time period then your name was entered for a chance to win two crosstown classic tickets*. I rarely win anything!! im so excited! not only for the game but over the fact that I won! woohoo!!!
So bees, have you ever won anything worth mentioning?
*for those who don’t know, the crosstown classic is a baseball game between the chicago cubs and the chicago white sox. There is a pretty long standing rivalry that goes on between sox fans and cubs fans here in chicago and these games are super popular. The tickets are hard to get and are super expensive. Im so excited!

@stardustintheeyes: hmmm I’m not really lucky but I did win meet and greet with Beyonce! I won some movie tickets at my company’s Christmas lunch. That’s about it.

I think I missed out on the lucky gene. I only have one story where I won something. I was a little kid in a department store with my parents. There was a jar of jelly beans and like a moth to a flame, off I go towards it.
People could guess how many jelly beans were in the jar for a chance to win a prize. I guessed, and I won. I was so excited because I thought I won the jelly beans. Instead, my parents won a new sofa. I was beyond disappointed but I guess it still counts as winning (and they still have the sofa).

Rascall Flats tickets
Kenny Chesney 2nd Row Tickets
Lady Antebellum tickets and meet and greets
2 tickets to the local auto show

Oh and some artist I “like” on Facebook randomly drew my name for a free art print.

Yep. A wedding on Ebay for $10,000. Pretty lucky, I’d say!

Won one of five $500 visa cards at my office Christmas party which was awesome, and I’ve won some smaller things as well. I always say “I never win anything” but I think I’ve actually had some good luck.

I won an oversized Toblerone bar in grade 5 at an assembly. I disliked them a lot, so I gave it away to the kid sitting next to me.
I would say I’m very unlucky when it comes to draws and things of that nature.

Yes, a few times, but nothing amazing.
My Fiance is the lucky one though. He wins like every raffle he’s entered. It’s kinda weird since I don’t believe in luck.

@stardustintheeyes: I’ve won fair tickets a couple of times and a few concert tickets (no one famous). When I worked for a hospitality company I used to win free wine, restaurant certificates and over night stays all the time…that was nice.
My uncle entered a raffle for a local charity last year and with $20.00 won a new Gucci Fiat. He is 78 years old and drives that little thing around town.

@MrsPanda99: Ha. Not for me but for my daughter. Turns out it wasn’t a scam, but a cancelled wedding they were looking to rebook so as to not take the loss. I guess lots of people thought it wasn’t real, and no one bid against me.
