I looooooooovvvveee Winning!

Oh yeah, Oh yeah, que si, que si! Can't help doing my "winning dance" as FedEx leaves 2 big packages at my side door. Naturally this totally embarrasses my 19 year old, making this a double win!!! Whaaaaatttt??? Puberty payback and it's soooo goooooddd, try to do it as often as I can. ; )

Winning- isn't that the best feeling? Ok, ok, we're supposed to be in life for the experience... but is it so bad to enjoy the winning experiences??? I for one get high on that feeling and it shows in my addiction to contests. Contests, sweepstakes, online, instore, wherever- whatever. Do I spend a lot of time entering? You betcha. Do I get a lot of stuff I'll never use? You betcha. Will I ever stop? JU SO FONII !!!

The joy of getting something free-( also why I am an avid couponer, but that's for another time) and that your name was picked above countless others, that if only for the instant of picking, you are special. The knowing that the Contest Gods smiled upon you and that you're in their graces is a feeling like no other. As Tata says, "No hay dinero como el dinero ganado." She's so right, "There's no money like money won." because everyone likes good surprises! Of course it's better when it multiplies- when you're "in the flow"- and Babushka is basking in that river now and loving it.

The official prize was her marvelous book,
but my treasure is the handwritten note that she included with the cookbook.
Classy all the way.

Mil Gracias to these 4 sites for their wonderful postings and giveaways.

Yes, the joy is in the playing, but the dancing is in the winning!!!
