I really really really want to WIN!

The sports radio station I listen to is giving away a trip for 2 to see the Milwaukee Brewers play in San Francisco in July (airfare, hotel, game tickets, tour of the stadium). In order to win, first you have to be the 14th caller when you hear a certain sound clip. They've been taking qualifiers for 2 or 3 weeks now. I tried for 1-2 weeks to qualify, maybe 2-4 times per day but I could never even get through, it was always busy. Then late last week I finally got through! Caller number.....12. So close! I got through again the same day, caller number.....11. Got through again once the next day, caller number.....11.

I tried a few times yesterday morning but it was always busy again. Then about 4 p.m. I tried again....busy, busy, busy, ring ring! You're caller number.....14!!!!! Woo hoo!

So now I'm qualified with a bazillion other people to win the grand prize. I'm sure they have well over 100 people in the running, so my chances of winning are slim, but at least now I have a chance! Jay and I could really, really, REALLY use this trip! We rarely get time out just the two of us, and there's no way we could afford something like this either. You know I'm a football gal :-) but I do follow the Brewers and while I would rather do just about anything than watch a baseball game on TV, I do enjoy watching baseball live. I've never been to San Francisco, that would be awesome.

I know there are so many more important, serious things going on around the world, but if you want to say a small prayer that I would win this trip, I would sure appreciate it! I'm not holding out too much hope, I never win stuff. But someone has to win and it might as well be ME!

This little girl will be 5 on Sunday!



Yesterday was the 4 year anniversary of the day we left for China to adopt Lindsey, and Saturday will be our 4 year Gotcha Day anniversary.

Congrats on making it through. I hope you win.

Come by my blog and maybe you'll win some free popcorn to munch on in the meantime.

From a fellow contester, I hear ya! And San Francisco would be such a nice place to visit.

Too funny! I haven't done one of those in SO long. I really hope you win.

What a sweet picture of Lindsey.

I love the hair pictures. The mean face she is making in both is hysterical! I don't have any hair stories. My boys don't have enough to cut!
