Hell yeah, I'm a WINNER!

Okay... so excited here to announce that I am a WINNER! I am super pumped to share the news with you that I got lucky last week and won a Flip Ultra HD video camera from one of my very favorite bloggers... Mama Kat at Mama's Losin' It. I was so excited to see that I had won! Feel free to click on over and watch me win again and again if you want. I do. I tried all week by entering to win one of four being given away at Mama's Losin' It, Better in Bulk, Mayhem and Moxie, and 7 Clown Circus. It was the perfect ending of the contest to find out I had won at Mama Kat's. No one better to win from, since we are practically bff's and all. Don't you agree Mama Kat? That we are almost bff's I mean? I know you do. That is why we are such good friends.

The thing is... I had gotten myself so excited about hoping that I win, I started to think realistically. Maybe I wasn't going to win. I know lots of people were entering each day. There only was 4 cameras to be given away.

We need a new camera to capture some of these moments we have been missing in the life of our almost 5 year old.

I said to hubby... "Hubby, we need a new video camera. We have missed this whole past year because the one we have is crap. Maybe we should get a new one."

He agreed. Partly because he is Mr. Right and I am Mrs. Always Right.

Well, lo and behold, guess what was in 3 of the Sunday ads this past weekend? Just the Flip cameras. And if we bought one at Target, my other love, we could get a $20 gift card. So, I poured over the ads, looking for the best deal on a Flip. I stayed up late looking at the Flip website trying to figure out which one would be best.

I decided that we needed to go buy ourselves a Flip because chances of me winning were slim. If Mama Kat loves her Flip, I would love one too, after all we are almost bff's.

Monday I had plans to haul the daycare kids to Target and get a closer look at this Flip business.

HOLY CRAPOLA... I got a comment on the blog from Za that said, "congrats u got the Flip". I couldn't believe it!

I rushed to my google reader and saw that a few of the winners had been posted. I watched one announcement and it wasn't me. I watched the second one and HELL YEAH- it was me.

So what am I going to do when I get my FLIP? I'm going to get really excited and open the box right away. I promised I would do a vlog... never had the nerve to get one done and I also said I wouldn't know how to get it to the computer if I did. Now, it is supposed to be easy-peasy to fix that!

Thanks Mama Kat, my bff, for choosing me to be a WINNER!!!
