Now THAT is Frugality!

I think I've won a "contest" maybe a time or two in my life? Not to mention that I hardly ever enter them - maybe that's why I "never" win anything.

My chiropractor has a little box in their office where you can enter the answer to their "Question of the Month" (they give you 4 answers to choose from). Several weeks ago I thought, "shucks, why not, who knows?" and guessed at the answer (I made sure to fold my paper in half to give it a better chance of being picked if I had the right answer, yada yada.).

I walked in Monday, and the girl said "Hey, we've got a surprise for you! You won the question of the month, so you get 2 free movie tickets!"

Yay!! So, that night I took Daniel on a date :) Well, kindof. He drove, and we ran 2 errands on the way. We went to see Fireproof, and wow, it's a real deal of a movie!! If you haven't already seen it, you definitely should. We'd been talking about going to see it, and Daniel was going to take me to see it when it first came out but we had something else going on so we never did. And now we did get to see it and not pay anything for it!! Woohoo! And we ate a good dinner before we went so we weren't hungry - though the salty/buttery smelling popcorn was tempting :)

Congratulations on winning. I too have heard good things about Fireproof and have read about it on the 'net. However, I guess we will wait for it to come out of DVD and then borrow it from someone to watch it. That's how we usually do anyway. Besides, I hate being tempted with the smell of popcorn in theaters.

I'm recommending the movie to everyone I know! I am even sending my teenage sons to see it. It is so great to have a date night especially when it is free!

Our church is going so see Fireproof on the 2nd! I can't wait. Our local theater is actually getting it, which is a HUGE surprise.

Congrats on winning! I hardly ever win anything, either!
