We won a cruise!

Well, it’s kind of been my lucky week.  I got to work on Monday and found out I had won a Carnival Cruise! Carnival was running some sort of promotion for cruise week and I registered, and won!  Probably lots of travel agents will win this because you still have to pay taxes, port charges and gratuities (so it isn’t exactly FREE), but I’ll take it!  We had been discussing what to do for Thanksgiving, so I got on the phone and booked a 7 night cruise for Thanksgiving week!  We will be spending Thanksgiving day in Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos. Jealous??

Second lucky thing that happened is that we had a contest at work to guess how many jelly beans were in a jar.

1024 Jellybeans in the Jar.  I guessed 1003.

The guesses were $2 to raise money for breast cancer.  I was the closest without going over, so I won the jar of jelly beans plus a $15 iTunes gift card!  Might have to download some new tunes to take on the cruise!

Now, to go out and buy a lottery ticket…

Previously, I won a trip to Ireland and took my hubby and my mom.  We had only been dating about a month when we went, but I figured if he could last for 8 days in Ireland with me AND my mom he was a keeper!  And funny enough, we left on Thanksgiving day three years ago!  So it must be a tradition we will have to continue.

What’s the best thing you’ve ever won?  Where is the strangest place you have spent Thanksgiving?
