Summer Getaway Shell Card Giveaway!

I'm sitting in my house, dreaming of a summer getaway, but at 37 weeks pregnant I can't go far! Hubby and I are talking about taking the kids to the museum or aquarium or both before baby comes, and since they're both only an hour away it would be possible.

While I'm dreaming of a "real" getaway, I'd love to help a reader with a getaway of their own (whether it's to another state or just the neighborhood park!)

I have another $25 Shell Gift Card to give away to one of my wonderful readers!



The Giveaway

The winner will receive:

* A $25 Shell Gift Card

To Enter:

1. You MUST be a follower (and follow publicly)!
2. Leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite summer activity or vacation destination.

* Comment on another post on my blog, and let me know that you did.
* Blog about this giveaway (make sure that you link to this page) (worth 5 entries, leave 5 comments)

Please make sure if you have a Blogger profile that it is public! If you don't have your email publicly available on your Blogger profile, please leave your email in your comment. Winners will be notified by email so I have to have it!
