So, I recieved some exciting news yesterday! For the past week or so, one of the local news stations here was advertising a chance to win a trip for 2 to the final taping of Dancing with the Stars. The trip included 2 tickets to the show, 3 days/2 nights hotel accomodations and transportation from the hotel to the show. Life has been so very crazy the past year and a half, I thought it would be so fun to try to win this trip for Robert and I to have a quick little giveaway. So, I entered everyday, missing a day or two, while the contest ran. Robert knew that I was entering and jokingly said that he'd love if I won the trip but would have to "hide his face" so his buddies didn't see him at the show.
Well guess what.......I WON!!!
I received a call yesterday from a lady with Merry Media informing me I was a qualifier for the grand prize. She just needed to know if I would be available to travel May 19 and May 21. I said yes, no problem, to which she said "Congratulations" and that she would be emailing me some paperwork to fill out. She also told me that KTUL would be providing round trip airfare! Honestly, I misunderstood her call and thought that she was telling me I was one of maybe 3 or 4 others who were finalists to win the trip. Well, I got busy meeting and visiting with some new neighbors and forgot about the phone call for a couple hours. Then I checked my email....
What did I find?!?! An email congratulating me on winning the grand prize trip to Dancing with the Stars! All I needed to do was complete the paperwork and return it to them within 2 days. How stinkin exciting is that?!?!
Robert is at Elite this week, the last week of it praise the LORD!!!! I tried getting in touch with him for 2 hours, 2 hours!, to tell him the exciting news! I was both excited and frustrated at the same time. I finally got ahold of him and he, of course, thought I was joking. I kept assuring him that no, I really won until he finally believed me.
So, today I faxed in the paperwork and should receive the hotel and flight confirmations by the end of the week. We're LA bound, baby, for the final show!! I'm a fan of Dancing with the Stars, so I know I'll enjoy the show no doubt. Plus how fun will it be to see all these celeberities?! Generally speaking, I don't think I get too star struck, but then again I've never met anybody famous. So, this is a bit different.
Honestly, this is the kind of thing that happens to other people. I'm in disbelief I really won. Obviously I entered hoping I'd win but I've never won anything like this nor known anybody who has won anything like this, so it makes you wonder sometimes if these are real and who actually wins, ya know? Now, now I'm a believer. Go enter those contests...you never know! :)
Looks like I need to go shopping pronto and find a great new dress for the show!!
