I never thought of myself as a lucky person. I’ve entered tons of contests and giveaways in my life and have won a handful.
When I was like 6 or 7 I was at some sort of convention and I won this little gem:
Remember these?! Considering I was the girliest of girls, I am surprised I loved this so much. I adorned my bunk beds in hot pink and purple rubber spiders, scorpions, and snakes that I created in my new favorite machine.
Then, when I was 13 or 14 I went to Florida with my family for a business convention. The last day of the expo a booth was handing out raffle tickets to all the kids to get rid of the decorations on their display. Much to my surprise, I was the lucky winner of this bad boy:
I’m not kidding, this thing is huge. We almost had to buy it a seat on the airplane. Luckily, we were just able to squish it into the overhead bin.
Those are the 2 things that come to mind when I think of lucky wins… until today! When I enter blog contests I obviously hope I win, but the chances are slim and I know this. The other day I entered a contest on Gracie’s blog Girl Meets Life for Merci Chocolate, and I won!! I received my prize, and could not be more excited! These are just the most elegant looking chocolates I’ve ever seen, not to mention delicious!
The box I received contained 7 delicious flavors, milk chocolate, coffee and cream, hazelnut-almond, hazelnut-crème, dark cream, dark mousse, and praline-cream. The pictures are of the first one I tried, the coffee and cream, it is amazing! I can’t wait to try all of the rest.
