Exciting Day

Well I had a very exciting day. I can not say how excited and thankful I am. As you may know I am a very loyal to entering blog giveaways. Those are usually the only ones I enter.

So lets step back a day or so…

I was talking to my husband about wanting to get a Flip, and yesterday I ALMOST bought one, but I knew we couldn’t really afford it. So I drooled and kinda was feeling all blah about everything. My husband told me at taxes I could get one. So I went to twitter and was tweeting to myself. I follow people on twitter and they follow me, but people on twitter do not like me LOL, because I was talking to myself.

I need a good flip camera, for my daughter to become the next youtube talk around the web. Anyone have any suggestions on a good cam? 4:49 PM Dec 3rd from web

Okay no suggestions from twitter on a flip. Guess I will go read reviews. 10:01 PM Dec 3rd from web

As you can see I was on twitter BEFORE I even seen the ShopDebtFree Flip giveaway.

Then it all happened about 2pm I got the DM to check my email I went and I had an email saying I won the Flip. OMG is all I could say. You could not take my excitement away.

Hi Jammie – we have some great contest news for you — check your email !! about 10 hours ago

I called my sister and my dad and had to tell them. I was so stocked. I still am, I so can not wait to get my new Flip, all the things I can do.

Now for the second big win of the day. Here is another story. O black Friday I went to Walmart at like 9am. They had 2 ps3 games for 10 dollars left. I called my husband and he wanted me to get the one for him. Tony Hawk Project 8. Well our daughter had been playing it and last night she says “Mom I changed my mind I do not want to take dance class, dancing is lame. I want to learn to skateboard because it is so much cooler.” mkay.

So when I got up today I seen Alyson had posted on MomDot Forums about the giveaways her and Kim from Whats That Smell had expiring in like 2 hours. So of course off I went to enter the giveaways. It took me like 1.5 hours to get them all entered and I was kinda getting worried I wasn’t going to get them done all the way. But I did.

Several hours pass and Kim from Whats That Smell? posted the link to the winners on twitter I went to look at, group 1 nope not me, group 2 nope not me, group 3 same not me, then four, then I got to group 5 and omg my mouth dropped. Why did it drop? Look at what I won.

Green Toys Jump Rope –

iDog Soft Speaker –

Bella Sara –

Build a Bear Holly the Moose –

Barbie Skateboard –

See that Barbie Skateboard. Omg I just won my daughter a skateboard. I am still trying to take everything in, but I want to thank Alyson and Kim for the great giveaways they do, and giving me the chance to win, This helps my family out more then you all will every know.

I also would like to thank Lesley and everyone who is on eBillMe and Shop Debt Free. All of you have made me day.

If I get the flip before Christmas I will be using it to video my daughter and I WILL be posting on my blog with all the thanks going to all the right places. So you too can see the excitement and how this makes our day. Thank You EVERYONE.
