Can You Believe Our Luck?

You've already heard about the Dreyer's Slow Churned Neighborhood Salute that we won recently. It turns out we're on a winning streak.

Last week we got a call from our local water utility. We had entered a drawing for a new water efficient front-loading washing machine. When she called, I was sure she was giving us the condolence call along the lines of this:

"Congratulations! You didn't win the washing machine, but you did win a free water audit from the city. We'll come out at no charge to you and tell you all the ways you are wasting water and killing Planet Earth. "


Instead, she said:

"Did you recently enter the city's drawing for a new washing machine? Well, it looks like you've won it!"


Me: Are you kidding me? WE WON IT?

I assured her that she would be hard pressed to find a family that does more laundry than ours in the city limits--especially one that is currently using a 20-year-old pathetically undersized and inefficient washing machine.

So, before our lucky streak runs out, anyone know about any great giveaways and contests I can enter?

You can start a winning streak, too! Coming soon is a giveaway of Dittany Baby products that you'll be drooling over.

That's awesome! I want to win a big ol' commercial laundromat washing machine and do all my laundry in two loads flat. But I would totally "settle" for your prize. That's great.
