HOLY COW!!!!!!

I got on the day after Wine and Dine registration opened (first day numbers were 78%, so I figured it would sit there) to find out it was SOLD OUT! Sad I immediately contacted the travel providers to see what the cost would be through them and talked to my friend (who I roomed with at Princess) about sharing a room and she said sure.

Then about an hour later, she emailed me and said to wait, to not commit to anything. I was all confused , but I waited.

A couple of hours later, she let me know that she won an all-expenses paid trip to the Wine and Dine Half for the winner and one guest, including race registration, airfare, hotel, and park tickets. Guess who she asked to go with her?!?!? ME!!!!!!!!

So in the space of an hour, I went from sad about not getting in and having to spend extra money to biggrin about having such a generous friend! Headed back in November for four glorious and FREE days!!!!!
