Hiatus

My husband and I are expecting our 2nd child and pregnancies aren't always a walk in the park for us. For this reason, I have let the blog slip and figure its just better to just take an official hiatus. My goal is to have the blog back online by summer 2012, but we will see. Worst case scenario, you will hear from me sometime in July of next year.

In the mean time, my suggestion remains using Online-Sweepstakes. Best of luck in your winnings and talk with you guys in 2012.

Off and On

Sweepstakes Title/Link - Concannon Vineyard $20,000 Sweep

Prize(s)- $20,000

End Date - December 31, 2011

Entry Frequency - daily per person

Simone's Thoughts - The blog is going to be a little off and on for the next few weeks. Have a lot going on at home and going on vacation. Normally I would prepare all the posts in advance, but its just not feasible right now.

The 20 grand from this sweep would be helpful, but money doesn't always fix everything. :)

What is snow?

Sweepstakes Title/Link - NFRA Ski Trip

Prize(s)- 2 night trip for 4 to a ski or sea destination; also giving away 10 prizes of $250 Dicks GC

End Date - November 30, 2011

Entry Frequency - daily per person/email

Simone's Thoughts - Amazingly enough, my 3 year old has actually seen it snow 2x in his lifetime where we live and I have the video to prove it. I don't remember seeing snow at home till I was about 6. Got really sick of it living in VT, but don't miss it here in TX. In any case, if you like snow and skiing, this is the sweep for you. For those of us who don't you can pick the 'sea' prize.

Tires...

Prize(s)- 2011 Dodge Durango; also set of 4 Toyo Tires (1 set given away weekly)

End Date - January 2, 2012

Entry Frequency - 1x per person/email

Simone's Thoughts - The tires would come in handy and so would the car. I thought Dodge Durangos were trucks, but guess I was wrong.

Its football time!!!

Sweepstakes Title/Link - ESPN Jeep Sweep

Prize(s)- 2012 Jeep Wrangler and trip for 2 to college football game

End Date - December 3, 2011

Entry Frequency - 1x per household

Simone's Thoughts - You have to be a member, but its free and most likely if you enter sweeps through my blog regularly, you already are.

My husband loves Jeeps and we both love college football, so this is a win-win for us. That being said, when I think of tailgating for college football a Jeep isn't really the vehicle I have in mind.

So tired...

Prize(s)- 2012 Cadillac CTS-V and a 2 night trip for 2 to participate in the High Performance Driving Experience

End Date - October 31, 2011

Entry Frequency - 1x per person/email

Simone's Thoughts - Sorry I sucked at posting last week, I'd like to say it won't happen again, but I have been so tired as of late, that it might. Hopefully, it won't. This sweep is for a Caddy. Not much more to say.

Amazon + FB

Sweepstakes Title/Link - Amazon Facebook Sweep

Prize(s)-$1,000 Amazon GC (1 given away weekly)

End Date - September 13, 2011

Entry Frequency -weekly per person

Simone's Thoughts - I try and stay away from posting Facebook and Twitter sweepstakes on my blog here since not everyone goes that route, but I couldn't resist on this one. No one can say no to a $1000 Amazon.com GC and if you aren't entering FB contests yet, this might be a good reason to start.

5 Dollar Store

Prize(s)- Laptop (1 given away daily - 30 total)

End Date - September 26, 2011

Simone's Thoughts - Did you know they have $5 stores now? Sign of the times I guess. Maybe by the time my kids are grown it will be $20 stores - lets hope not. The odds are good on this sweep, thats why its here that and my hard drive fried on one of our computers... sigh.

Prize(s)-  7 night trip for two to Bangkok, Thailand with all the bells and whistles

End Date - December 15, 2011

Entry Frequency - 1x per person

Simone's Thoughts - Since my loyal followers all know I have a young son, it will come as no surprise that I will not be entering to win this. Maybe one day we will go, but not anytime soon. If this is your 'bag' though, by all means it looks like a wonderful trip!

Manly looking ride

Sweepstakes Title/Link - Polaris ATV Sweep

Prize(s)- Polaris® MY12 RANGER XP® 800

End Date - December 31, 2011

Entry Frequency - daily per person/email

Simone's Thoughts - This looks like something you would use for dove hunting or could strap a dead animal to the back of. I don't hunt doves, I feed them and point them out to our son in the morning. Sometimes I hit them with the car when they don't fly away fast enough, but I don't need a Polaris to do that.
