Beg, Borrow, and Steal.....well, just beg

If you saw my last post, 12 days ago I became one of six finalists to win a Tempur-Pedic mattress set from Kristen at We Are THAT Family.

I was determined to win this thing.  I mean, really, how many times does one get the opportunity to win a Tempur-Pedic mattress valued at almost $5000.

From the beginning, until the contest ended, I shamelessly harassed begged

  • friends and family on facebook
  • Twitter peeps
  • co-workers
  • neighbors
  • college alumnae association members
  • commandeered phones of surgeons I work with to help them get in "their" vote (with permission, of course)

Because voting was based on one vote per IP address, I also visited several local wi-fi spots to get a vote in there. 

I spent the entire week obsessing over THIS contest.   By the end of the contest I was FRaZzLeD.

But, you know what, PERSISTENCE paid off!  My people responded, in a BIG way and I love them dearly for it.

Coming soon, to the Greek GRITS household.......THE Tempur-Pedic Contour Signature mattress AND the Tempur Advanced Ergo System.

I may never leave my room again!
