Need help, once again

I love that I can post to my blog and ask my followers for help! Blogs are awesome!
First of all, I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas! This was mine and Brett's favorite Christmas so far since we've been married! (out of the 2) We spent time with our families, and were stuffed with delicious food! Me & Brett spoiled each other big time....I surprised him with Jazz tickets against the Spurs and Lakers, and a Treadmill! He surprised me with beautiful jewelry, Nike's, movies, and a new camera lens! How on earth did we get the money to buy ourselves this stuff? I have no idea! But we are very blessed!

ANYWAY, to the topic that I need help with....
Me and Brett FINALLY have saved up all the money we need to go on a cruise. (Most of it came from Brett reffing football). Now...I just need to actually PURCHASE the tickets. We know exactly which cruise, and what day we're going on, I just don't know which website/company to buy it from. Does that make sense?
We are doing the Mexico Riviera cruise, with Carnival, sailing out of Long Beach, (Brett's favorite place in the world). So...does anyone have any advice? Experience? Where to purchase the tickets? I really don't want this to be a painful process. I'd like it to go as smooth as possible, and since this is mine and Brett's first cruise, we could really use the help!

I'm a Mormon

I love these Mormon videos, of people telling their life stories. At first, I'll admit, I thought they were kind of silly and cheesy. I didn't think it was something that would last. But now, I think I've watched every single one that has been made. The people that they've featured are very interesting, and different. I just love it. I even find myself getting all teary eyed sometimes. (but I'm definitely a cry baby)
I'm a 'fan' of the Mormon.org page on Facebook, and this one was uploaded today. It's probably my favorite so far. But I'm a sucker for love stories!

Luck

So....this is ANOTHER brag blog post....but Brett said this DESERVED to be blogged about! Remember that depressing post this past summer, about all of my bad luck and payments I had to make in 1 month? Here it is to remind you.....

  • tuition
  • rent
  • car payment
  • car crash...
  • 'improper lookout' ticket
  • replace Brett's lost wedding ring
  • Horrible job with horrible hours, so I never saw Brett.
Looking at that list....it doesn't seem like that big of a deal, but I remember being in the moment, it was so depressing.

Well, with all of the bad luck that comes my way, A LOT of good luck comes also, to even it out.
I LOVE listening to the radio, and try to win stuff.

In the past 1.5 years, here is the list of things I have won
  • Einstein Bagels and Vitamin water for the office, May 2009
  • Kenny Chesney tickets, June 2009
  • Stadium of Fire tickets (Carrie Underwood) July 2010
  • $100, July 2010
  • Movie tickets, (that was a horrible rated R movie, so we didn't go, but it still counts!) October 2010
  • Disney on Ice tickets, November 2010
  • $500 (but really $400 from taxes) November 2010
Most of this comes from Kbull 93, they are my favorite. Johnson & Johnson and Shotgun Jackson are so fun to listen to, and have the best personalities for the radio.

On Saturday, I was caller 13 to win tickets to Phil Vassar on Thursday, and I've been DYING to hear him sing again, since I heard him in 2007 at the Country Fest.
Winning that contest, I was entered into the 'Grand Prize drawing', and I needed to listen for my name at 11:20am on Monday.

Well, at about 8:30am on Monday, I got texts from 2 different people, saying they heard my name on Kbull....and I was VERY confused.
1-because the guy told me to listen at 11:20
2-because i did not think it was possible to win a grand prize.

So I called and called and called, FINALLY got through to Johnson & Johnson, and...............
I WON A TRIP TO LAS VEGAS!!!!
airplane, and 2 nights in a hotel. Not sure what hotel yet. And they don't know yet when it will be.
But how cool is that?? a free trip! I do wish it was somewhere like....Florida, or Hawaii....especially since Nationals is in LasVegas in February....haha. But it'll be cool to go there and not have to worry about the cheerleaders.

YAY!!!!
I love good luck!
