Do you ever have the feeling that luck is you on your side?
Well, let’s just say that the last few days have been lucky for Mrs. NewlyWoodwards.
It all began on Friday afternoon when I won a B&N Nook e-reader in a work drawing. I’ve been lusting over the Nook for months and I was really hoping I would win. That baby is awesome.
I think I thought I was on Price is Right for a moment after winning and promptly made a fool out of myself in front of 200-or-so coworkers. (Totally worth it. I’m still smiling just thinking about it.)
Then, everything just seemed to go my way on Saturday, too:
- I went to buy paint at Home Depot and there was a “buy 3-get one free” deal on gallons of Behr paint. (In case you are wondering, I bought 8 gallons. I’ve already used two of them.)
- I stopped for my favorite pizza bread for lunch at Grinder’s Spaghetti House (local) and it was a special for $2.50.
- I picked up a small bottle of carpet shampoo at Bed Bath and Beyond and it wasn’t priced. The manager said it was a sample for demo at the store and I could just take it home and try it.
