A Michigan woman who'd been having an "unusually lucky day" turned that good fortune into a windfall

The 60-year-old, who was not named, said the day started with her and her daughter finishing yard work they needed to do in half the time they thought it would take.

But the luck didn't end there.

"When I left my daughter's, I left my cellphone on my car trunk and realized when I got about five miles down the road," she told Michigan Lottery officials. "I backtracked, and found it laying in the middle of the road unscathed."

It was at that moment she said she knew she needed to buy a lottery ticket

And thankfully she did: The woman took home a $100,000 prize, which she plans to use to purchase a new home with her husband.

"Winning is awesome!" she said. "We've worked so hard our whole lives, it feels like we finally got something we deserve."
