Calling All One Tree Hill Fans

Okay, I'm so excited about this story I'm about to share that I'm having a hard time typing. So let's see if I can make it through. I'll start at the beginning.

I've followed Bethany Joy's blog for quite sometime. Probably a little over a year. If you watch One Tree Hill, Bethany is one of the main characters; she plays Haley James. Soooo, I've followed Bethany's personal blog for a long time and have enjoyed it so much. While the show was being filmed in Wilmington, she'd post photos of her outfits and pictures of her with her kid and it was so fun to follow her life. And every now and then, she'd even do a giveaway on her blog. Of course, every time I entered but when 3,000 people are entering a giveaway, it's not likely I would win. I accepted that, continued to follow her blog, and never won any giveaways.

Well, about a week ago, she had a giveaway of an autographed call sheet from one of the last episodes in season 9. I was pretty excited when I saw that and I simply entered by writing a comment. My comment just told her how much I appreciated her and the show. I won't go in to detail on that, but basically, I entered. I went to bed that night and strangely, that was all I thought about. The whole night, I was thinking about who had won and how lucky that person was. Haha. I'm pitiful, I know. I just wanted to win!! I even ended up dreaming that she was filming next door to my house and not only did I meet her and hug her, but if I remember correctly, I got to be a part of the show. :D Yeah, I wish.....

But when I finally woke up the next morning, I slowly grabbed my phone from the charger next to my bed and opened Twitter, where she said she was announcing the winner. My heart was beating so fast because although I knew the chances of me winning were slim, I had this weird feeling I had won. I scrolled down through about ten of her recent tweets and there it was.

After reading said tweet, my heart was literally moving my chest and my mouth fell open. Why was I freaking out so much? I have no idea. I guess the thrill of winning something was pretty crazy. I've never won anything in my life. So at this point, I still didn't quite process that I had won. I figured it was probably some other Meredith. I typed in her blog address and then finally saw my comment. IT WAS ME. I WON. I WON SOMETHING COOL FROM SOMEONE FAMOUS.

I really didn't know what to do with myself from then on. I figured I'd just wait for the package to arrive. And that's just what I did. The little package came while I was in North Carolina but as soon as I got home yesterday, I ran to my room, opened it, and photographed the exciting contents. I'm obviously the coolest person ever... Who wouldn't want to be friends with me? Hahaha. But anywayyyyy, here's what was inside. :)
