I'm just going to share the story of when I won something!! November 2009
My DH is from Minnesota but hadn't been back there in 5 years since one of his brothers funeral. So every time we would play Keno (hopefully you know, cause I'm not sure how to explain it!) I would say lets see if we are going to Minnesota. So after my shift (at a pub I worked at) I was waiting for my DH (BF at the time) to finish playing pool. So I decided to play Keno. I played 7spot since I never play it and I told him lets pick numbers we have never played before. So he picked, then I did, then he did... On the 7th number I told him on the count of 3 say your number and we will see if we picked the same one! He picked 75 and I picked 76. HA! So we 'paper-rock-scissor' and he won. Sure enough on the next round we hit ALL the numbers. I was playing the 7spot (which the 6, 7, 8, all have rolling jackpots). I turned to him and said We are going to Minnesota!! He started crying - it was the sweetest moment ever.
So $7200 later, we had tune ups, new tires, a washer and dryer for me (we didn't live together), bills paid for the month, a bit in savings and a trip to Minnesota! My first plane ride and unknowingly to us - the first time I got to meet my future family-in-law.
