Things That Make Me Happy

I have a running list of things that make me happy.  One of them is this!  A real life Barbie car. 

I very rarely ever see a pink VW Bug in Minnesota-Wisconsin, really only ever in Southern California but I saw one last night on the way home.



Happy Friday!

Not sure that is really a word, but if it isn't, I don't care--then I just made it up!  Today is Wednesday, July 13th, which means my birthday is exactly three months away and also the number 13 is lucky for me so I mailed in my raffle entry today to win a 2012 Porsche.  Even if I don't win (but, I AM GOING TO WIN) the $100 goes to the lung cancer foundation.  Also, I have always thought Wednesdays were my lucky day and they are doing the drawing on October 16 and October is my lucky month.

I wrote about this on Facebook and one of my friends insisted that there is no such thing as luck.  To which I replied adamantly that I am a big believer in luck.  How about you?   Do you believe in luck?

In other news, I just finished Candace Bushnell's latest book in the Carrie Diaries series (a prequel to Sex and the City), Summer And The City.   It was wonderful; I loved it.  I just love how Candace Bushnell writes--she inspires me. 

You can follow her on Facebook and she is having a promotional contest called What Would Candace Do where you can ask her a question regarding fashion, relationships, lifestyle, etc., and each week she chooses the 2 or 3 most interesting to answer.  At the end of the summer she is going to choose her favorite question out of all of them and the person who asked that question receives autographed copies of the Carrie Diaries and Summer and the City, and an autographed I Love New York t-shirt.  How cool would that be?  I am still trying to think of a really good question.

Tell me in the comments if you believe in luck and/or if you have read either the Carrie Diaries or Summer and the City.  Or if you have ever won a raffle for that matter!

Happy July 13th!!!
