Back in December, the store I work at was having a contest with all of the other stores in the country. Ours was one of the ones that won. Each employee is getting a $25 gift card, and is eligible to put their names in for a raffle for three big prizes, an apple watch, a vivofit (which seems basically like a fitbit) and $100 cash. A lot of employees didn't put their names in because they said they never win anything, I made sure to put my name in because I never win anything.

The drawing was this morning and I got a call from the store manager saying I won the apple watch. Holy crap! That's awesome! He said once he sends my name to corporate, they're going to overnight me a $375 gift card to the apple store.

The only issue is, I don't know a thing about apple products, I've always been a straight android person. I've been meaning to get a new phone anyway, so I can just get an iphone instead of another android. My question is, what's so amazing about the apple watch? Why is it so freaking expensive? I don't understand lol. But still, this is a freaking awesome thing to win!

On top of all of this, right as I was starting to type this post, I got a call from my DD's school. They invited me to a PTA banquet next month and said my ticket was already covered since I'm receiving an award for my help with the school. I'm not nearly as active with the school as I'd like to be, but in December they were having a bookfair where I work, and since it was right before christmas, all of the other employees were swamped, but since it was my DD's school, I kept checking in to see if they needed anything and if I could help. They ended up raising a whole ton of money for the school that day and the principal thanked me profusely for helping.

Today is a pretty awesome day.

You do have to have an apple phone to use the Apple Watch. I have one and use it for texting and emails mostly. It also has a lot of fitness apps available.
