So it’s been almost 3 years since God, Tyra and Volvo have blessed and gifted me with my shiny silver C30 T5 Volvo…aka Edward’s car! And it’s been the best 3 years you could imagine! All the emotions, excitement, experiences, memories and more that came along are just more reason to smile every single day.
Every time I sit in my car, without a doubt, I am overwhelmed and just can’t believe that this car is mine. I play back that day I was on Tyra all the time in my mind. Okay, okay…and on YouTube. It’s nuts to me that there are so many videos, photos, and articles about everything all over the Internet. I’ve even gotten fan mail believe it or not. I like to return the favor once in a while and let someone else see my car up close and in person. There have been times where people have asked me for a picture or two, and I’ve always said yes. The best was when I charged $2.00 a picture. But don’t worry. All the money went to the American Heart Association. It’s the least I could do considering I got my dream car and everything else given to me.
My mom and dad are very proud I would say, and I love giving them their bragging rights. I love them so much. Even at my work, my boss and co-workers are always letting people in on the story. And again, I don’t mind. Unless they tell me they’re not a Twilight fan. Then we have a problem! A funny story was when I went out of town to buy, of course, Twilight shirts and posters and anything else you could think of! The cashier started telling me about this girl who won Edward’s car. She told me she tells everyone about it because of how exciting it is. I just smiled.
For my birthday a couple years ago, my dad blew up a couple of pictures from the taping of the show when I won the C30 and got them framed. They’re hanging on my wall and I love them. And oh my gosh am I excited for the new film coming out!!!! I got my tickets for the midnight showing the day they went on sale of course. I’m reading Breaking Dawn…again…to amp up for the premiere. I would definitely say, still, that I am the biggest Twilight fan!!!! I am so thankful for everything that was given to me and the experiences included.
Meeting Rob and Taylor and receiving the Volvo C30 – the best gift of all time will be something that I’ll never forget. I wish I could do it all over again…and again. So thank you to Volvo and everyone who was involved! I feel so blessed and no amount of thank you’s will ever pay back the debt!!
