Wednesday Ramblings

Happy halfway through the week friends! Hope you can keep up with all the stuff running through my head today! :)

First of all, I wanted to let you know about this awesome blog I just discovered: Sweet November. If you love crafts, this is the place to go! They are offering free advertising until they reach 300 followers. Click on the icon below to get more information!

As some of you may remember, I was a huge fan of the TV show LOST. Did you hear  the Mega-Millions winning lottery numbers last night? Four out of the six numbers on the winning lottery ticket were the same numbers as Hugo's winning lottery ticket on LOST (and the same numbers that kept "appearing" throughout the series). 
Mega Millions numbers: 4, 8, 15, 25, 47, 42
Lost numbers: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42

The winning lottery ticket on LOST

I'm not familiar with how the lottery works (I personally don't play it), but I believe if you get at least three of the numbers and the mega number right, you win a small amount. I wonder how many LOST fans were still playing those same lottery numbers??

In other ramblings, last week on Twitter (again, follow me here if you would like), I entered Master Card's "Priceless to Me" Tweet of the Week contest. You had to send a tweet and put #pricelesstome in it, and then obviously say something that was priceless to you. Master Card then voted on the best one. Well, I won!! :) I'm supposedly getting my prize sometime this week or next week. I'm not sure what I'm getting, I'll let you know once I get it though! :)

My winning tweet and my notification that I had won!

I've been meaning to post this for a while. I mentioned a while back that I know how to cross stitch. For Christmas I made my sweet friend Jillana a tissue box cover. She loves lighthouses so I picked a lighthouse pattern. I thought I would show y'all a picture of it (a lot of you do "crafty" stuff on your blogs, and I was feeling left out). ;) I didn't mention it while I was working on it since she reads my blog. :) I'm so glad that she likes it! It was fun to make!

My tissue box masterpiece (okay, maybe not masterpiece)

Hope you are all having a fab week! Thanks for all the sweet comments, they have really made my week! And thanks to all of you giving me encouragement either in comments or on Twitter with my 30 Day Shred workout! I appreciate it! :) XOXO!


  1. 1. That's freaky about the LOST numbers.

    2. Congrats on your win!! So exciting.

  2. Aww, good for you for winning! I can tell that really made you happy.

    Maybe next time you could tweet that winning a contest is "#pricelesstome"! ; )

  3. Congrats....I think...cuz you don't know what you're winning for sure. Hmm. Your sidebar kills me. Sudden Death?? What a cheerful read that would be. LOL

  4. Okay, 2 things

    1: I am cross stiching a stinking BABY BIB right now and am DIEING at how long it has taken- you are AMAZING doing that whole cover!

    2:My hubby and I LOVE Lost, I cant believe those numbers!
