A Sign of Things to Come

I blogged yesterday about the Holiday Fest event held annually at Publix. The Polk County event is over, but for those friends of mine in Ocala, your Publix stores will hold their Holiday Fest festivities this Thursday, Nov. 15.

At tonight's event, several boxes were placed around the store to win various prizes- $50 Publix gift card, a poinsettia, tickets to an adventure park, etc.

We walked through the store sampling desserts and meats and crackers and cookies. In fact, when we got home, we weren't hungry for supper- we just had dessert.

Later, Grove Park Publix Manager Eric Richards called to tell me I won the "Decadent Dessert Platter" in tonight's drawing!!! I have no idea was that is, but it has "decadent" and "dessert" in the name and since those are two of my favorite words, I know I'm gonna love it!

I wasn't feeling very lucky about winning anything tonight because of my recent disappointment at the Best Buy Reward Zone event, where I won diddly squat in their contest.

But after tonight's good fortune, I'm thinking this is a sign of things to come. After all, I'm registering every day to win the DIY kitchen and bathroom makover sweepstakes. And anyone who's been to my house knows I need to win this contest way more than I need a Decadent Dessert Platter.

So here's hoping Fortuna (that's my little shout out to one of my favorite books, A Confederacy of Dunces) smiles down on me and keeps the good luck flowing my way.

I too went to the one in Winter Haven, but didn't end up with any prizes! All the free food was nice though!
