Aloha Waikiki

I finally got the email with the affidavit of eligibility and the details of the prize I won. It is a trip to Waikiki on Oahu. We will be staying at the Sheraton Waikiki! It looks really nice. I have always wanted to pay my respects at Pearl Harbor and it isn't too far away from the hotel.

All I have to do now is fill out the paperwork and fax it back to the prize coordinator and then I will receive more information on how to redeem the prize.

I had got into a rut about entering my sweepstakes since my wins were few and far between-this win has taken care of that! I never think of it as luck that I win anything, its just persistence, patience and entering a sweepstakes at the right time.

I hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Hawaii here I come!!!

I just got an email from the Blockbuster Great Gift Giveaway Instant win game that I am the potential winner of the grand prize trip from Travelocity!!

I looked up the rules and there are 4 trips on the grand prize list. They are all 5 days in different destinations in Hawaii!

I have to wait for another email with the affidavit of eligibility and I'm not sure when I'll find out which destination I won. I looked them up and they all look amazing. The prizes were: Kauai, Maui, Waikiki, and The Big Island. The hotels all looked very nice! The ARV ranges from $4,300 to $5,000. I can't wait to find out which one I will be going to-I'll have until November of 2008 to take the trip.

I have been entering this every day since November 13th, they send you an email after you enter to let you know if you have won and all the emails I have gotten so far have said sorry-you are not a winner. So tonight when I looked I was shocked to see Congratulations!

I hope everyone is having a great week! :)
