I Won!

Well, along with the rest of America, Jeff and I splurged and bought five lottery tickets for last night's drawing.  (Did you give in to peer pressure too?)  As we waited for the announcement at 11PM, we talked casually about what we would do first if we won.  Jeff said he'd call a lawyer and a financial planner.  Figures.  I would quickly log on to JCrew and do some internet shopping while calling everyone I know.  It's probably for the best that we didn't win - it wouldn't have been good for our marriage...

BUT, I did have one lucky moment this past week.  And, I'm not exaggerating, I'm almost as excited about it as I would have been over 640 million dollars...

I won these amazing curtains from Windows by Melissa from a giveaway at 6th Street Design School.
(Odds were 1 in 366.  Still not bad.)
Photo from Me and Wee.
YES, they match Sam's bedroom perfectly.

YES, I'm obsessed.

YES, you know I'll post photos when those suckers are up and doing their thing.  ;)

Edited to Add: Maybe you won't be as impressed by this as I am;but, I just got an email back from Melissa (the window genie) after I sent her my mailing address, and she lives TWO MINUTES from me.  Seriously, she could WALK those curtains over.  (Ya'll, I won the giveaway from a blog out of UTAH.)  Small world, huh?  So... She's coming over at 4:30.  New curtains and new friend? Yes please!

What are your plans for the weekend?  We're hoping to spend some time outside, visit the Easter Bunny, and conquer the dreaded seasonal-closet-switch-over.  Have a great one!


  1. I love the chevron print, especially in yellow like this! Pretty!!

  2. How crazy & cool that she lives right by you!! Love the curtains too! :)

  3. you make me laugh (abt you and jeff and the lottery) and i love that you just made a new friend/met a neighbor by winning her curtains. that would probably only happen to you.

  4. Those are going to look great in Sam's room! Cannot wait to see!

  5. I have really enjoyed reading your blog and hope you'll come read mine! In the next few months, we will start trying for a baby of our own. I would love if you would follow along!

    Hi, Elizabeth! Melissa here. It was so fun to meet you today! I hope you enjoy the curtains. I was BLOWN AWAY when I saw that we live so close to each other! The funny thing is, Kirsten wrote me with only your email and said she told you that I would contact you for the shipping address. So she had no idea when she picked you that we lived near each other. Wild! It was meant to be, I guess ;)

    Enjoy the curtains!

    P.S. I think I should get a prize for being your 600th follower ;)

  8. Congrats and that's awesome that y'all are neighbors!

  9. I'm stopping by via Karen at Home. I just love your house! I hope you are enjoying your new curtains. I had to laugh when I saw that the person who makes them lives near you. Isn't that ironic?? I'm a VA blogger and I have a feeling that we probably don't live too far from each other.


Your comments are what makes this thing fun! I LOVE to hear from you and do my best to respond to everyone! THANK YOU!
