I win!

At my work, each Monday they have a new, elaborate, stunning bouquet of flowers on display for all the clients to admire as they come in. At the end of the week, each Friday, we have a "flower drawing" so that someone can take the flowers home, since they would just get thrown away over the weekend (it would be like murder, seriously). Well, on a scale from 1 to 10 on how lucky I am, I'd rate myself at a 2. In the whole 8 months that I've been there, with them drawing names EVERY Friday, I have never had my name pulled to win these flowers. And yes, many people have won multiple times.

Today was my lucky day. Aren't they beautiful? And they smell divine.
I'm bumping my luck up to a 4.

Oh, those are INCREDIBLY beautiful! I'm so happy for you, because I know just how happy they make you : ) It's genetic, we can't help it. Flower love.

Maybe this is a sign your luck is a changin'!

I am right there with you. I never win anything... until recently. The two of us had lucky weeks, I'd say.
Way to go, those are beautiful.
and may your luck find it's way to 8 on the scale. (cause you would never want to be perfectly lucky. I mean, hugo on lost??? need i say more?)

Well good for you. I tend to be one of those unlucky people that never win too. My mom on the other hand always wins. Tis life. I have yet to see you this summer, what are we going to do?
