Congratulations! I won 1300.00 in a radio contest for poetry when I was a teen. I was so excited. My parents and I used it toward a trip to Hawaii.  :goldstar

. Yes Jenna! I won on Kiss 108 my senior year in high school too...$1,000. That was a lot of $ back in those days! :old 
BTW I think we have a mutual friend, Jackie Tierney Nolan? Feel like I saw your name connected w her somewhere recently?
Anyway...thanks for the positive vibe. This will be me on June 29th :pickme

Yes! She's a good friend -- her husband is my son's baseball coach (and at times basketball -- the boys go back a while). You've probably seen me on Facebook! I have been madly posting photos of the baseball team this spring, and tagging her in them. Jackie is also friends with a local writer I met at NESCBWI 2 years ago (though I didn't know when we met they knew each other -- found out on FB). Small world!

 :goodluck

Cape Cod even w/o the concert would be amazing. :vacation

Hope the museum passes are year-round and that it's one you want to visit anyway!

Too funny Jenna! Jackie & I go way back...to junior high in fact! Lots of fun times w her & her twin sister! Had my first job w her at a local bakery where we often partook of the confections!!!  :cupcake :cupcake Haven't seen her for a while but we stay connected on FB. Not sure she heard about me winning on the radio, but you'll have to tell her! She'll remember when I won back in high school...sitting home w broken leg & via rotary phone!! Maybe we'll meet one day!

Yes Anne, Cape Cod is beautiful! Just day passes to the Museum of Science in Boston which is great! It's funny because they had been giving out concert tickets as the immediate prize but not on that day. Course my 2 teen daughters were bummed about that, but not me.  I feigned disappointment but secretly glad as I'm not sure going to a concert with a bunch of teens would be my thing. :bewildered. Of course private acoustic concert by Kelly Clarkson would be AMAZING!!
