First, a little about vacation, and then I'll share with you a new giveaway, in which you could win a $50 gift card to spend however you wish at any of CSN Stores more than 200 online stores, which feature beach toys, board games, cookware, dining room sets, baby accessories and anything else you think might make your summer more complete. Seriously, if you win, you won't have trouble spending $50 at one of the online stores.
Cate was 13 months old when we went to Hilton Head two years ago. In case you don't want to do the math, she's 3 now. I am so looking forward to seeing her reaction to the beach this time, when she walks, talks and brainstorms her own ideas.
I'll find out soon enough what she thinks of the beach her momma loves because we leave for Hilton Head Island, S.C., on Saturday morning. We'll be there for a week, with my parents, brother, sister, brother-in-law, soon-to-be-official sister-in-law, brother-in-law, niece and nephew. We're all staying under one roof, and, thankfully, the house we're renting has a pool in the backyard and a short path to the beach.
In addition to lounging by the ocean and pool, we'll eat seafood, play some board games and the Wii, laugh, eat some more, and probably shop. And speaking of shopping, you probably want to know how to win the $50 gift card to CSN Stores. All you have to do is comment below with your favorite vacation memory.
And there are other ways to enter! You can get an additional entry for each of the following you choose to do: Follow me on Twitter. Tweet about this giveaway. Or blog about this giveaway. Just leave an additional comment with the appropriate link to Twitter or your blog.
You have until I return from vacation and celebrate the Fourth of July with the other side of my family to enter, meaning I will randomly draw a winner on July 5. Be sure to leave an e-mail address so the $50 gift card is directed to the appropriate inbox!
