A Warren County, N.J., woman is the proud owner of a brand new car, and she's "lovin' it."

Juliris Samarelli, of Phillipsburg, won a 2013 Fiat 500 in McDonald's annual Monopoly game. She got the keys Monday at Brown Daub Fiat at the Palmer Park Mall near Easton in Northampton Co., Pa.

Samarelli collected all the green pieces on the Monopoly board to win, but she said she almost walked right past the last piece she needed.

"As I was walking away, I noticed one on the floor, and I was like maybe this is it, and I picked it up, and it was Pennsylvania Avenue, which was the third one that I needed, and I was just like, 'Oh my God. We won!'"

Samarelli said this is the first time she's ever won anything.
