Saturday, we attended Jason’s work’s Christmas cocktail party. It is one of the parties I look forward to most during the season because 1) I get to dress up (I love dressing up) and 2) they have really, really, really awesome prizes that you can win raffle style after a night of casino games where you win (or lose) chips that can be redeemed for raffle tickets. You put your tickets into the fishbowl(s) of your choice and each bowl corresponds with a different door prize. When I say the prizes are awesome, I’m talking like a $1,000 gift card to the Grove Park Inn was one of the prizes this year. awesome.
This is the 6th time we’ve been to the party and we have never won anything. I was determined that 2013 would finally be our year to win something. anything. I put energy out like it was 2007 and Oprah was talking about The Secret. I also went in with a strategy - I was going to put all of my tickets toward whatever prize had the least amount of raffle tickets leading up to the drawing. Genius! The prize with the least amount of tickets wound up being a $150 gift card to Sephora. And guess what, y’all? I won!!!!!!!!!!!
I’ve already spent my winnings and picked up this blow dryer set from Sephora. The reviews are great and I’ve been needing a new hair dryer but couldn’t convince myself to drop $100+ on one. I’ll report back on if it lives up to the hype.
