A Valentine's Surprise!

I've been keeping secret for a while now, and today is the day I'm spilling the beans.

It's sweeter than those heart shaped candies, 
way better than long stem roses, 
and just as good as a pair of diamond earrings...

Confession time? 

I've teamed up with 30 fabulous ladies you all know and love from the blogosphere, and together we're giving away a $1,500 Visa Gift Card - yes, you read that right - fifteen hunskies for just ONE lucky reader! 

This is big! We all chipped in to show the love, and I can't wait to see who wins. What would you spend $1,500 on? Dream it up, then use that gusto to get your entry on :)

Oh, and P.S.
Happy Valentine's Day 
to my wonderful hubby, family, friends, and readers!!!

  1. Basically my wardrobe is old old old. I NEED NEW CLOTHES! SO that's what I do. Or actually...hmmm....my cell phone/mobile is about to die...an upgrade would be nice. Or both! Or....something else equally awesome :)

  2. This is so generous of you all! I have a couple of friends' weddings this year and I would use the money to pay for bridesmaid dresses bachelorette party trips, showers/gifts, ets. You know how expensive everything with weddings can be and I want it all to be special for my girls! :) Happy V-day to you!

  18. Wow this is awesome! Hope I win :D

    I'd probably stick it into my savings account. My plan is to get a fence for our backyard this year and they're expensive! More money would mean I might be able to afford a privacy fence instead of a lame chain link one :|

  25. Kristen, wow! What a generous giveaway. I don't think I've seen anything like it before. <3

    If I had a 1500 dollar gift card, I'd probably use the money to buy a new washing machine. Not very exciting, but for the past five months we've had to wash every single dish and knife and fork by hand, and that's time we could spend having fun.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have so many uses for that $$... But I would probably put it towards my business. Fingers crossed ;)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  45. I would put it in the bank and stop having to worry about being able to pay my rent for awhile, since I've been unable to work since November.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh wow! This is incredible. My family just suffered from a terrorist attack in Algeria; since I was one of the lucky ones and got my dad back home from that I would take him out to a concert or a cultural event that he would like and treat him a good dinner as well. And if there would be anything left I would buy some fabric or craft supply to continue sewing and crafting clothes and accessories out of delight.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would buy a couple chairs we've been needing for our living room! And take my hubs out for a fun night on the town! :))
