So maybe blogging is going to bring me good karma. The day after my first post, I found out that I won a $500 airfare voucher to go see my BFF back in Jersey. So excited, I was doing a happy dance all over the house. Then, it got even better, my BFF called me a while later to tell me she won the same prize. Holy Cow! If it weren't for the limitations on this prize we would be heading to a spa weekend somewhere, but we have to travel by Dec 23rd. With the holidays coming up and money being set aside for presents and parties to attend, its just too crazy. Instead we're going to spend some time at each other's houses and explore the areas together. I am super excited to show her around Omaha, and cant wait to get back home and maybe a trip to Atlantic city for a mini spa getaway and of course a little gambling. I am going to keep posting here and maybe it will keep the luck flowing in the right direction!

I am born and raised Jersey Girl, currently displaced in a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska. I have been here for about a year and a half. There is actually alot to do here, but I sure do miss my good friends back on the east coast. I've been reading other people's blogs for a while now and thought maybe I would try starting my own. The pay in the midwest is a lot less than back home, so I've become really interested in gatting things at little or no cost. I'm getting sort of good at it. I've also been entering a lot of contests, sometimes my luck is better than other times. It's always fun to go to the mailbox and have an unexpected suprise waiting there for me. Yes, this is how I am keeping myself entertained, and since the weather is going to start getting cold and snowy soon, I figured this is a great time to start blogging.
