I'm dubbing today Winning Wednesday for two reasons:
1. Personally, my husband and I have won two great prizes within the last week. First, my husband was the correct caller on a local radio station and won (2) 11-day passes to the Muskegon Summer Celebration, a huge annual event with lots of fun stuff, including great bands. performing on stage. Last Friday night, he had the privilege of seeing Loverboy and Joan Jett. Last night, he took my daughter to see Kellie Pickler, and tomorrow night, he'll take my son to see Billy Squire. This coming Friday, he and I will go to see Heart. Can't wait for that! TOLD YOU there are some great bands! Classic bands of the 80's totally rock.
The passes he won are worth around $200. Not bad!
Then, yesterday, I received a certified letter in the mail informing me that I am the grand prize winner of a contest I entered that was sponsored by Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa and Pepsi. I won a 2-night, 3-day ski package for six people to stay in a 3-bedroom condo at Crystal Mountain. Sweet, right? Well, it would be...if any of us happened to ski. Not sure if this 40-ish body could handle all of those wipeouts.
I have emailed the resort to see if there is a possibility I can exchange the ski package for something a little less...extreme. Like Golf. I don't golf either, but I'm willing to learn. My arms might get sore, but at least it's likely I won't end up in a body cast.
So anyway...that's reason #1 I'm dubbing today Winning Wednesday. On to #2...
2. The FaithWriters Best of the Best winners were announced today. If you'd like to find out who won, visit my Examiner.com page. Hey, I earn a whole penny every time someone reads an article on my Examiner site. I'm not above begging for clicks. There are links provided to the top three entries, so you can read them and congratulate the winners.
Anyway, because of all the winning going on this week, I would like to give something to you! Because I want to share the love! Of winning, that is.
What can you win? Well in honor of the FaithWriters Writing Challenge Best of the Best winner (and because the Challenge starts up again tomorrow), you have the opportunity to win a FaithWriters anthology of your choice!
So here's how it's going to work. Check out the following FaithWriters anthologies and leave a comment letting me know which one you'd like to win and why. Don't be shy about the reason you want to win. If it's because you happen to have an entry published in one of them, that's a great reason!
I will randomly select a comment from all the entries and next Wednesday, I will announce the winner.
