Once upon a time I was really bored at work. I had a lot of other things I could have/should have been doing..but I was rebelling just a little. So obviously, I instead decided to google my name. Well once there, it is really quite fun. You go through seeing what "Kendra Haynie"s are really you and such. It is a good time, I suggest you try it if you have not already; which I am pretty sure everyone has at least once! So I was just going through and seeing that a lot of them were about me speaking at high school graduation, sterling scholar winner, FCCLA scores, quoted in the Daily Universe etc. I even found out that I have a profile on athletic.net! So great...although not my PR's from my senior season....Annnnyyyyway, sorry I am really bad at going off on tangents. So I just was googling myself and the image below, is what I saw.

Right there, Gift Card Giveaway Kendra Haynie from Provo, UT. Well, at this point I was super baffled. So I decided to write them a little message about how I am pretty sure this was me but I never had heard anything about it, but I would like to know more.
Fifteen minutes later, I get a call from a man who had the thickest southern accent I have ever heard, and obviously immediately fall in love with him...his voice. He proceeds to tell me that I am in fact a winner...of a
$150.00 Gift Card
Apparently if you are on their mailing list (which I was because I had bought something from them) you were entered into their drawing and an email had been sent to me but because it was from a different sender it went straight to my junk mail. "Mam, if you could just please confirm this mailing address I have fer you here, I will personally make sure your gift card gets sent out first thing tomorra mornin." ...and can we get married? Thanks.
Yes Please. Holy smokes right?! What are the chances of this actually happening. Crazy! So now, I can guilt free by myself another pair of boots...or maybe a salmon pair of wranglers and sequin shirt, Rodeo Princess Style?! The possibilities are endless!!!
Moral of the story: Frequently Google yourself. You will never know what you won! :)
