Once, when I was 11, I won a colouring contest and got a basket of Easter chocolate. It included a giant chocolate bunny.
When I was 27, I won a trip to Mexico and took my sisters. It was only available in August, but it was still pretty cool.
Now, I won a pair of the greatest boots!
I entered a giveaway on my friend, Elan's blog Schmutzie.com for an awesome pair of Blundstone boots. I have entered for them before, but never expected to win them. Elan is kind of a big deal and has a lot of followers (and thus entries). Also, I know her personally which means I will not win because that is just the way life is.
Imagine my surprise when I actually won!
I have heard people talk about the boots for ages, but I'm cheap and lazy, so I never got a pair. I was pretty pumped to know they were finally going to be mine!
I was contacted by a rep from Tin Shack and made arrangements to go down to a local shoe store, Iannones Footwear, to pick up my boots.

Dudes, if you are in my city and need some shoes -- that is the place to go!! They sized me up, hooked me with the perfect Blundstone, and then were very patient with me when I also fell in love with another pair of boots I can't afford.
I settled on a gorgeous pair of Blundstone's and plan to come back for the other pair later.
