Well we left and ran our errands (which included a stop the cable company because they hadn't included a discount on the bill like they should have. While there, we were given a year's "free trail" of DVR. About a $150 value. sweet!) We were getting paint at Wal-mart, but needed to run home to get a paint sample and decided to swing back by Famous Footwear for the 5:00 drawing that would happen in 10 minutes. Colby and I both entered then walked around to scope out what we would grab if we happened to win. Just as they were doing the drawing, I turned to Colby and said I thought he would win. Well, what do ya know...they called out "Colby Heiner."
SWEET! Colby won a 30 second shopping spree where he was given 30 seconds to grab as many shoes as he could. The rules were he had to grab a box, not a display shoe, and bring it to the counter, one at a time, then go grab another. He didn't have to grab the right size though, because after the time was up, they would go get the right sizes for us. It was fun to cheer him on and watch him run around the store. He grabbed me a pair and then 3 for himself. In total, we walked away with over $200 worth of shoes. I thought it was pretty nice that he grabbed the super cute heels that I had pointed out as his first selection. He then went on to get some church/work shoes, work-out/tennis shoes, then some casual pumas. So how is that for a lucky day. Not only did Colby win those shoes, we also got free DVR! Yeah-yuh!
(Sorry this was so long and detailed. I copied and pasted from Mitch's missionary email. Tried to give him lots of details so it's what you get as well.)
