I'm a Contest Winner!

Mama M. over at Five Crooked Halos hosted a contest to win $65 to CSN. CSN is a site where you can purchase just about anything you can think of. All I had to do to win was leave a comment. I left a comment in about 15 seconds and forgot all about it. A couple days later, Mama M. left me a message that I had won! The only tough part was choosing what in the world to get!

Here are the things that I had in my cart before I finally pulled the trigger on my winning item.
  • various hardware for our bathroom
  • girl clothes
  • shoes for Michael
  • snow globes
  • ceiling fan for Audrey's room
  • pulls for our kitchen cabinets
  • Christmas wreath
  • outdoor playground
  • Christmas dinner plates
There could have been more things, but I can't remember at this point. Some items didn't quite make it to $65 and I didn't want to waste free money. Then other items went well over $65 and I didn't want to spend money just because I won money. Then on other items, I didn't want to spend the money on it when I had not seen it in person. Well, what did I get? Something that I've always wanted to try but would NEVER spend the money on. THIS:
This is a Chaco Flipflop. It was $66. So I paid $1 for a pair of shoes that should be the the most comfortable shoe I'll ever wear. I heard about these shoes on facebook between a pregnant friend and a friend whose father is a podiatrist. The podiatrist said that there was no better shoe for your foot than a Chaco. The pregnant friend ordered a pair and raved about them. I took a look at the website and I refused to pay that much money for a flipflop or sandal, no matter how awesome they are. BUT, I'll pay a dollar for them! I should get the shoes on Friday! Bring on the warm weather so that I can wear these suckers!
