I WON, and I don't remember entering

This weekend the weather was so pretty, I opened the whole house up to let it air out while I cleaned like a maniac. When opening the front door, I discovered a package that had been delivered via FEDEX. I couldn't remember ordering anything, I listened carefully for ticking sounds, it seemed to be safe, so I opened it. Much to my surprise, I found a pair of walking tennis shoes. I didn't know why, I signed up online to do the 60 mile breast cancer walk, so I thought maybe they sent me a good pair of walking shoes.

I called my daughter to tell her what I found, she told me we had signed up to win a free pair of shoes months ago. She won a t-shirt, I won shoes!

They are pretty comfy, I can feel the difference when we walk around the lake, I like them, they would have cost around $80/pair if I had purchased them. This is a great treat, I would never pay that much for a pair of tennis shoes for myself. I really never win anything, so was quite thrilled to get them......I am such a weirdo, so easy to thrill with a pair of tennies! Oh, they can be found at

I'm glad I'm not the only one that never remembers what contests or freebies that I sign up for. This just happened to me this week when Karen asked me if I got my free Close to My heart stamp in the mail. I didn't even remember signing up for it! (It's nice to have a friend like Karen that keeps me up to date and actually signing up for these freebies!) HEE

Yep, she sent me the link to sign up for the shoes, she won a t-shirt.
