Surprise! A Prize from our local library!

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

The phone rang yesterday morning and I saw it was the library-"-probably calling to tell me a book I have reserved is in," I thought. Well I was surprised when the gal said, "Congratulations, you won a prize for this week's adult reading program!" She told me I could stop by and pick it up and they'd like to take my picture for the website. Well---I thought the prize would be a gift certificate to the local diner or grocery store but boy was I surprised when I got there to pick it up!

It was filled with all kinds of goodies and called "Fit and Fabulous!"

A manicure set, French manicure polish and accessories

Some wonderful Avon products

A piano, guitar and flute CD to relax to

An advanced Pilates DVD

Nine holes of golf for two at a local golf course

A one month membership to World Gym and a one month pass to Curves

A free haircut at Best Clips

A bath pillow and bubble bath which I am using tonite!

And some miscellaneous things like a Find a Word Chicken Soup for the Soul book and some pretty note cards and a World Gym t-shirt.

It was all packed in a cute travel suitcase. The title of the prize is Fit and Fabulous! After I use all the items, that's what I hope to feel like!

This unexpected surprise was truly a nugget of joy in the middle of a lazy summer day!

    How exciting. I wouldn't call it a "nugget"; it's more like a gold mine. Seems like it was made specially for you in gifts and name. Fit and Fabulous, golf. pampering, reading, etc. I am so happy for you. Enjoy many days of being lifted up. Perfect timing by God, I think. emoticon

    Holy cow ... that's a lot of stuff, and the theme couldn't be more appropriate if it had been designed with you in mind. Fit and Fabulous indeed!!!

Enjoy your bubble bath and book.

    Wow! How neat! And even more neat that you won it.

I went to one of our county libraries today and registered for the June basket - gardening items. It looked pretty nice. Now that I "know" someone that won one once, maybe I will get a phone call! emoticon
