Stop Following Me, Luck!

Have you ever won a giveaway or sweepstakes?  Most people haven't, and that used to be me.

About a year ago, though, I won my first blog giveaway.  It was a pair of LeapFrog Maracas.  Then in a completely separate incident, I won a sweepstakes from LeapFrog -- the company itself -- for a Leapster Explorer!  Right before it hit the market!  Yay, right?  But both of those were random.

This summer, I had a little winning streak.  I won three blog giveaways -- a children's CD/DVD from Alicia's blog (Mommy Delicious), an e-cookbook from Vanessa's blog (De Su Mama), and just yesterday I received my "I Love Beef!" gift pack that I won at Jasmine's blog (TheMrs. The Mommy. The MD.).  And then a local company was hosting a giveaway for liking their Facebook page.  Well, guess who won a $50 gift certificate to a restaurant?  Scary, I know. (By the way, I was too busy to go pick up my gift card, and now it's too late.  Who doesn't make time to go pick up $50 worth of free food?!)

So, anyway, I stopped entering contests and giveaways for a minute.  Call me crazy (and don't get me wrong -- I LOVE all my cool new stuff!), but I'm a little weirded out by all the luck. It felt crazy thinking, "I'm probably going to win this."  

So I'm done for a while.  UNLESS you want to bring me a lottery ticket.  We'll split the prize.

Edited to Add:  How could I forget?  Luck HAS stopped following me.  I had some good ol' car trouble after school earlier this week that required a husband to leave work and a call to AAA.  So I'm good now.
