The woman was understandably overcome with excitement and disbelief. She couldn't believe what was happening was real. The first thing she did was call her kids to tell them the amazing news.

Lottery Winner:

I like playing the scratch-off tickets and I play them quite a bit. I scratched the ticket on the way home from the store, and when I saw I won $300,000, I just kept yelling: ‘This can’t be real!’ I felt like I was in a dream. I called my kids as soon as I got home to tell them the good news.

Where Did She Buy the Holiday Scratch-Off Ticket From?

The woman purchased the holiday scratch-off ticket from Kroger on South Main Street in Lapeer.

According to WDIV, with her winnings, she plans to pay bills, complete home improvements, and help those in need this holiday season.
