June 21 (UPI) -- A Michigan woman out running errands brought a surprise back for her husband -- a scratch-off lottery ticket worth $300,000.

The woman, interviewed anonymously on a Michigan Lottery website, said in a post online Tuesday that she planned to surprise her husband and tell him he could retire early.

She bought the winning scratch-off Monday at a liquor store in Bridgman, while cashing in a few other small winning tickets.

"My husband works very hard and every day he asks me: 'Do I have to go to work today?'" the 61-year-old said. "I'm going to surprise him when he gets home today and tell him he'll be able to retire sooner now that I've won this big prize."

The Berrien County woman hopes to also buy a car with her winnings.

MLive.com reported a man in Grand Rapids, Mich. also won $300,000 last week playing a lottery game.
