Kelsy, who is my maid of honor, and I attended a bridal show on Saturday to see the fashion show and get some ideas for decorating the reception area. Plus I was looking for some deals, and as I remember they give you loads of coupons and stuff. We were there for no longer than 20 minutes before I had won a $100 gift certificate for a bouquet from Emberlily's Floral Shop. When I told my mom, she said that she would have been more surprised if I had NOT won something while at the show. It wasn't like they were giving away gifts left and right, the matter of the fact is that I am just lucky.
I can't remember if I have told this before, but I believe my luck all started one night when my family was bored. My mom decided to entertain us girls by giving us the chance to win $20. In order to win the prize, the winner would need to guess, dead on, a number she had chosen that was inbetween 1 and 1000. My sisters gave much thought to what number they would guess. One strategized by guessing the #1. The other guessed something in the 200's. When it came to my turn to pick a number I casually said, "Um, Seven -Fifty- Three?" And with $20 in hand I was only starting a streak of good luck.
In the seventh grade I won the monthly prize drawing 2 times, in eighth grade once, and again in the ninth grade. I once found $1000 cash in an envelope on the floor of the DMV, and being a goodie at the time handed the stuffed envelope to an associate with two piercings, and 5 visible tattoos. Being naive, I was sure it would find its owner, instead I bet it found a dirtbag with a stash of MJ. I sure wish I would have saved it for something better like my college education. I also knew I was lucky when I passed wendover on the way to California and noticed that the exit is 410...my birthday 4/10. The only thing I have yet to win is the Dorothy Johnson football pool.
I guess what I am trying to tell you is that this is one bouquet that you will probably want to catch even if you don't have marriage in your future, because I won it from luck...so you never know what could come with it.
