UPS alert have no idea what it is!
I love getting UPS alerts because while I am still excited when the brown truck pulls in my driveway I do like a heads up so I am dressed appropriately when I RUN out to meet the guy (unless it is a computer gizmo for my husband then he can leave it on the front porch!). But if it is for me, I am all over it! This is a shipment from Amazon but the sender originated in Knoxville, TN but the thing was shipped from Greensboro, NC. It was supposed to be delivered on Friday but somehow it got bumped to be delivered today and it is currently on a truck heading to my neck of the woods.
I do have a Bop It game and a book I won from a blog that haven't arrived. So maybe it is one of those. Or maybe it is something else!
So excited to have the brown truck show up though!

Delivery is between 10am and 2pm. It is 9:51am right now. My 60 lb dog is standing watch at the window for me. I will know immediately when the big brown truck stops here.
Did anyone else get a Bop It game as a win and it came UPS?

Thanks for the info. This package is 2.3 lbs and UPS so it isn't the Bop It game. It could be the book I won. Or something else which would be a total suprise! Come on Brown!

Oh how awesome would that be? I won a book a few weeks ago and books can be about 2 lbs, 3 ounces. So that would be fine. I like receiving my wins!
If it is a suprise win that is even more exciting. If it's a Kindle that is super exciting!
Goodreads doesn't ship UPS does it? Since they are usually advanced copies they wouldn't come from Amazon right?
I am going to check out Amazon.com for weights of Kindles now!
Where is Brown?

Brown just left. A friend sent me a gift, a random act of kindness. He had told me about the book by Nate Silver "The signal and the noise, why so many predictions fail - but some don't" and the 1968 Franco Zeffirelli version of "Romeo and Juliet" just the other day. I told him I hadn't read the book or seen that movie. So he sent them to me. So it's like a surprise win!
Happy sweeping everyone!

Question
I got a UPS notice from Contest Factory Prize Fulfillment that a package weighing 2 lbs had been shipped. It is suppose to be delivered Jan.30th. It must be something I wanted to win or I wouldn't have entered.Now the suspense is killing me.Is it a book,a nook, a fabulous new look?

The contest factory is sponsoring the Sandisk instant win game. Did you win a camera case from them.

Got the same UPS alert and I won the camera case too. I thought it was going to be a suprise.
