my booty

No, not that kind of booty...

I'm talking about my loot. My catch-of-the-day.


Friends of ours invited us to join them at a children's fair at our local community college today. There were games and singers and


and fire trucks

and a bubbleman (which Griffin LOVED). We were given two raffle tickets when we arrived to put into a drawing. I dismissed the idea since we didn't plan on staying the whole day.

At around 12:45, we joined our friends to watch the bubbleman and they commented that the raffle drawing was being held at 1:00. I replied that I hadn't participated and that, no doubt, they would win it anyway. (They have a knack for getting free stuff...even more than we do.) With about 5 minutes to spare, I decided to just run down and drop my tickets in the basket. Why not?

Well, the rest is history, as they say. I received all sorts of dirty looks from jilted raffle-hopefuls as I walked through the halls carrying the big old basket. I almost felt guilty. Almost.

Mostly just delighted. =)

Are you kidding me? Why would you feel guilty? You looked so fabulous carrying that basket :)
I was actually really happy you guys won. You deserved it!!!

I echo your sister...I was hoping for a booty shot when I saw the title of this post. Darn. Oh well...your booty-ful basket rocks and you so deserved to win. But what Scotty and I were most excited over was seeing Wes' new 'do...he's so chic. We're afraid to his friend now, as he's surpassed any level of coolness we'd be able to attain. :)
