The Excitement Of Winning The Lottery Without The Cash...



A lot of you may already know this because I went straight to Twitter & G+ last night & rubbed it in everyone's face out of excitement...

(no, I'm not pregnant)

I won an auction for a 5 day / 4 night Cancun resort stay!

Woot-to-the-mother-effing-woot-woot!

Yeah, I totally went there...leave me alone, I'm excited. Rusty and I have been wanting to take a trip to Mexico since before we got married, 5 years ago. Sadly, the only Mexico trip we've had since then was visiting my grandparents' ranch, which is definitely not a resort. Although, my grandma does own 1 of the 2 washers in the entire town and has a 21st century shower with hot running water. We were living like kings I tell ya!

Truthfully though, there was no fucking way we were going to be able to take a trip to Cancun without having won the lottery. Too many bills and Vegas has always been closer and cheaper. Way cheaper.

But I totally lucked out when Lauren shot me an email a few weeks ago asking me to check out her other blog, TLC Auctions. I'm not even shelling out 1/4 of the price it would have cost. The best part is that the money goes to this dude named Daniel, who's literally had to have his left arm pieced back together after a hunting accident, and 6-year-old Kaylea who's fighting the crap out of Leukemia.

See, I'm charitable. They get my money & I get a trip. It's a total win-win situation up in here.

I have 12 months to redeem this stay so I'm thinking it's time for me to kick this diet/exercise thing into action cause these thighs & belly are definitely not Cancun ready.

*looks down* Yikes. I got a lot of work to do.
