I'm London Olympics Bound!!!

Oh. Em. Gee. You just read that right. Is this real life? 

It was a one in 27 million change but, my husband and I just WON an all-expenses paid trip to the London Olympics in a sweepstakes from Visa! Yeah, those commercials you see! Hopefully Morgan Freeman will even be a voiceover for us!

So, last Monday Derek gets a call saying that we've won this trip to the Olympics. "Uhhh yeah right," I said. "That's definitely a scam." But as we looked more and more into it, we became cautiously optimistic. When the gal had us independently ask Visa for confirmation, we got the answer we desperately wished for! 

Unbeknownst to us, every time we used our Visa Check Card, we were automatically entered in this random drawing. The winning purchase was a $5 purchase at our local coffeehouse!

So now we are anxiously awaiting our {FREE!} 4-day, 3-night excursion to the world's biggest event! We find out tomorrow which events we get to watch. This is where we're staying, just a couple miles from Buckingham Palace:

My Olympics bucket list is to wear a gold medal, hug Michael Phelps, see the changing of the guards, have a pint at the Texas Embassy in London with some international friends, meet a gymnast and have a spot of tea! Can't wait to tell you all about it!
