Is it possible to use happen with "with" and "for"? For example, can I say the following?
I don't know how I pulled it off. It just happened for/with me.

It just happened for me.
Is totally natural, common use, despite the comment indicating otherwise.
You even have the connotation of the phrase correct — if you didn't say "I don't know how I pulled it off..." it would still sound like you're not sure why or how it happened. It "just did".
