I Won I Won I Won!!!

When Cindy Hartman of Hartman Inventory ran a contest on their blog http://www.hartmaninventoryblog.com/ to win two tickets to the Indiana Flower and Patio Show, I knew I had to enter......and.....drum roll.....I won!!! This is SO exciting to me as I rarely win anything....and I really wanted to go to the Flower and Patio Show...exciting stuff!!!

Here is my contest entry:

Why the Divorced Diva should have the tickets to the Flower and Patio Show

1. Growing up southern, flowers started to bloom in February…..and in Indiana every February and March I get really sad because I see no flowers….and it’s cold….and grey….and cold….and…brown….Getting to see all those flowers will make me happy beyond belief….a happiness I would be more than willing to share with those around me

2. My 40th birthday was 3 days ago….and it would make a nice present….and I DO so love presents!!!

3. It would give me a place to take the new man in my life……did I just say that publicly….yes, a new man……and what better place to test the muster of a man….than spending the day at the Flower and Patio show…..it would be a true act of service…

4. I would be willing to guest blog on your site about it and post a link from my blog to yours……..

5. I will Twitter your praises till the cows come home!

6. My yard is in desperate need of ideas….and now that I have lived there a year…I can now landscape….

7. I will invite you and your hubbie to sit on my deck, have a margarita and look at my garden……..which will be a thing of beauty because I went to the Flower and Patio Show

8. And last but not least…….drum roll……because I desperately need something new to add to my Facebook status!!!!


So now that I have won......I have an official date to the Flower and Patio Show....a true test of the measure of a man....as a matter of fact, Cindy sent me a personal note with the tickets asking me to let her know how the "test" goes.......a day of looking at flowers and decks....hmmmm....stay tuned

I love it when good things happen to good people. Can't wait to see the "test results". I'm sure "the man" passed completely just don't push it with the opera, the ballet, or the art museum. I think you are more than deserving for the tickets and the new interest.

You are just too sweet!! The Man passed with flying colors...was interested...attentive...patient...and even a bit excited to go (A picnic earlier and me wearing a cute pair of tight jeans didn't hurt either).... :)
