Winning contests, to be exact.

I've won lots of stuff lately-- mostly from my favorite beauty blogs (a few of which you can check out if you look to the bottom right of this page). I'll be blogging on the winnings with which I have fallen in love as time goes on, but today I'm talking about the thrill of winning stuff.

I love that feeling, and really do run around like the most frenzied of newly-picked-to-play Price is Right contestants when I win... on the inside. I don't really run around at all, truth be told, but the spirit of it is absolutely there. I bet the people who offer the contest have no idea how much I am delighted by being chosen as their winner, but I try to convey that if/when I can.

Anyway, today I came across a fantastic video of the announcement of a contest winner. It was awesome, and it made me wish I had a contest to offer all five of you who read this, just so I could do something equally as exciting when I pick one of you as the winner. Unfortunately, however, I have no such contest, so we must all live vicariously through the guy in the video...

Congratulations, Deb in Denver! I actually know a Deb in Denver, but it's not the same one. But damn, I wish it was!

Tell me-- what's the best thing you've ever won in your whole life? I would love to hear about it.

Anyway, thanks for reading. Hope you win something wonderful very soon.

I am reading your blog and lovin' it! I even have it in my favorites. The only thing I've won is $20 playing the lottery. I keep entering these contest things and I haven't won anything! :( But I'll keep trying. And you keep posting cause I'll keep reading!

Thanks for posting, Angela! $20 isn't bad! Good luck with future contests-- let me know if you win anything. :)

Nope-- totally random. I stumbled upon the video while reading a Marketing blog.
