Oh my goodness. Oh my GOODNESS. OH MY GOODNESS!
I won a computer on MckMama's blog. And not just any computer...an HP Touchsmart 600 computer.
Me. ME! The one who never wins anything. I won a freaking computer!! AAAAH!
Here I was, basking in the glow of after Christmas joy. Enjoying the heart warming company of my family. Thinking about how truly blessed I am and have so much to be thankful for this holiday season. Getting ready to enjoy a sit in the outdoor living room my brother in law and sisters in law constructed before sitting down to a delicious fondue dinner.
And I thought, hey, I am going to check my email quick.
Wow, am I glad I did! I had 7 messages from comments on my blog. I thought that was kind of strange since the posts people were commenting on were almost a week old. So I opened the first one and it said
"Lindsay, I'll email you, too, but wanted to let you know that you won the HP TouchSmart computer!!! Please email me asap at the contact email on my blog;)
And I am pretty sure my heart stopped for a beat or two. Or three. I had to read it again and then again before I could even begin to comprehend what I was reading. I managed to squeak out "I just won a computer!" and my whole family went bananas! I will be honest, my husband was (and maybe still is?) a bit skeptical.
Unbelievable. Completely and utterly unbelievable. My heart was racing and my hands were shaking but I managed to email MckMama with my contact info. I haven't heard back from her yet, but have faith that I will soon.
So thank you. Thank you MckMama for sharing this amazing giveaway with us. And thank you to all of the people who have taken the time to look at my humble little blog and leave me well wishes and kind words.
