I got another $3 from Pinecone and I won a $25 Amazon card from Dear Donna Freedman! I would like to clarify that she did not pick me, the random number generator picked me! I got all excited and misspoke. Or mistyped, however you want to look at it! Don't tell anyone but I still kinda think I am her favorite!

I bought a $25 cinema gift card for $12.50 and I got that in the mail! I also bought this super awesome Plasma car for my nephew! It was $41.99 on Amazon. I used the gift code that I won and another $16.99 out of my free money stash. He is going to LOVE this! You wiggle the handle back and forth to get it to move. Yes, I am an awesome Aunt-thank you very much!
