Amber Norris, 24, of Green Forest, Arkansas did not go to work last Wednesday because she'd lost her voice.
Instead, she and her husband, an Arkansas state trooper, decided to take a road trip to Springfield.
Along the way they stopped in Ridgedale, Missouri and bought some lottery tickets.
It turns out her "Big Money" scratchers ticket was worth $100,000.
Norris says they'll use the money to pay some bills, fix her husband's truck, put some in the bank, and maybe even take a vacation.
