lil bit of luck. .

ok. so my friend is on a winning streak. . .

a couple of weeks ago her company had their annual party and they always have a bunch of prizes to give away to randomly chosen people. everyones' names are in a big box and they draw them for each prize. the prizes were like digital cameras, ipod nanos, xbox, etc. and the grand prize was a 40 in LED TV and guess what....SHE WON THE TV! (reaction photos below)
hey fiance and her began their registry at crate and barrel and they had this restaurant there to cater the event (its like a registry engagement party thing). she entered her name in the bowl for a chance to win $100 gift card and guess what....SHE WON THE 100.00 gift card!
they are keeping their fingers crossed for the big one: the HGTV home giveaway! they haven't announced the winner yet. each year HGTV gives away an amazing home they they custom build and design this year it is in Stowe, Vermont. the home is worth $650k and the winner also gets $500K and a brand new chevy denali.

I hope this lil bit of luck goes a long way. . . home giveaway here they come!

Do u think HGTV read thier e-mails under thier 'contact us' tab.... I had to send them this e-mail:

"Dear HGTV Dream Home 2011 Giveaway deciders,
I have friends, a newly engaged couple, who watch your show religiously! I just wanted to send you an e-mail on their behalf and let you know why they should be the recipients of this fabulous Giveaway.

Their names are Bryanna Martin and Brain Lumsden. They are two people with big hearts and would do anything for anyone. They are both recent graduates from an expensive MBA program and looking strait into student loans as well as a wedding ahead of them. They are absolutely madly in love with each other and are excited to start a life together. They have grown over the past year in their relationship due to a tragic accident that happened to Bryanna's little niece. Clair, her niece, was in a pool accident and suffered brain damage because she is so young and fragile. Over the year, tears of joy have replaced tears of sadness because Clair slowly continues to make progress through her treatment.

I know Bryanna and Brian do not have the money to purchase a home in the near future; however HGTV Home Giveaway could change that. They would be the perfect contestants for this dream come true.

Please consider them for this wonderful gift."

Food. does the body good. .
