WON A CAR FROM OPRAH!
Yes, she won a car from Oprah on one of the Favorite Things show this past fall. Can I tell you how extremely thrilled we are for her? H- was nominated as a hometown hero for her work with adoption. She's great at what she does. We have K- because of her and her husband. That alone deserves a car as a reward!
She scored some pretty fancy earrings, sparkly Ugg boots that make her giggle every time she wears them, an iPad (I played with it a little, but McD's had no WiFi!), a $500.00 gift card to Nordstrom's, a Coach bag, something about pot pie but I didn't get details. How can you really go wrong with pot pie, though? There's a set of brand new pans. A good set of brand new pans. I've seen H-'s pans. I may very well have helped to cook with them. Girlfriend needs a new set-- bad. She's been sharing a $150.00 tin of popcorn. K- has a very expensive snack awaiting her tomorrow.
H- deserves it. She deserves all of it.
The new car? Her current car has the window duct taped because the motor is broken and it is a $700.00 repair. She has a 22 mile drive to work. The little VW bug that she'll be getting will get great gas mileage.
K-? Her prize was her family. To her, that was worth more than the gifties that H- scored from Oprah.
Smiles in my day:
- Surprising K-.
- My work week is done. I'm not a fan of working sale. People have been very well behaved this year, though.
- Getting a resolution to the Saga of the Sauce (post below.) Though I'll be pitching the jar, perhaps the e-mail discussion that I had opened the owner's eyes to being a little kinder next time.
Have a great day!
