Mother’s Day Giveaway Winners

by Erica

Happy Mother’s Day! We hope that it has been fabulous. We have some winners to announce in our Mother’s Day Giveaway event. Thank you to all of our prize sponsors and to everyone who took the time to enter our giveaways.

Here Are Our Winners

HP Pavilion dm1 Notebook

The HP Pavilion dm1 with VISION Technology from AMD has a full processor and so, despite its sleek, small size, it has the power of a full size computer.

The dm1 features an 11” display, it weighs just over 3 lbs and is about an inch thin. It also has a built-in webcam, which is essential these days!

The battery life on the dm1 is excellent. It lasts up to 9 hours — and I found I could get about 4-5 hours of hard core usage out of one charge — running Lightroom, Firefox and other programs at the same time.

It also features CoolSense technology that knows if the notebook is on your lap or the countertop and adjusts its temperature accordingly. I love this feature! In all, I am impressed with the dm1. I can easily slip it into my purse and yet still get the power I need to work.

Congratulations to comment number 534, Jenn. You have won the HP Pavilion dm1 with VISION Technology from AMD. An email has been sent your way with instructions on claiming your prize. You can also email us at contests5m4m(at)gmail(dot)com.

$50.00 Gift Code to Shari’s Berries

As moms, we lead busy lives. We are constantly on the go, with what seems like a never ending to-do list. I firmly believe that not only do we deserve chocolate, but that it does make everything better, at least for a little while.

This Mother’s Day, say “I Love You” with Shari’s Berries. With their collection of chocolate covered strawberries, cakes, brownie pops, truffles and more, you are sure to find a treat that is as sweet as she is.

$50.00 Gift Certificate to Luna & Stella

Luna & Stella offers jewelry to symbolize the loves in your life, your moon and stars. Their stunning birthstone necklaces, rings and earrings are made-to-order and custom-set with the birthstones of loved ones.

I love the Moon & Stars Birthstone Charm Necklace. It starts with a sterling silver, oxidized silver, or gold vermeil chain. You can then add a crescent moon in one of 4 finishes, and complete your necklace with birthstone charms representing your loved ones. The best part is you can add additional charms as new members join the family.

Luna & Stella also offers a Moon & Stars Birthstone necklace, which is a perfect way to display up to five stones. Their Angel Wing Birthstone necklace is a touching way to celebrate or remember a loved one. Other store offerings include Crescent Stone Stacking Birthstone Rings and Star or Moon Birthstone Earrings.

Office 2011 for Mac or 2010 for PC

Over the years, Janice and I have always both been PC users. Our fears of getting used to new keyboard shortcuts and coping with compatibility issues kept us away from branching out into the Mac world. But one day, several months ago, I gave in to curiosity and bought a MacBook Pro. We couldn’t believe it had finally happened. We were split in separate camps.

MacBook Pro

I enjoyed my new life as a Mac. Janice feigned envy, but I could tell she couldn’t stand my Mac’s delete key and her fingers weren’t ready to retrain away from Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. In some ways, we got along fine… I as a Mac and she as a PC. And I thought I could survive without owning Office for my Mac. I bought iWork and figured I could get by with Google Docs, iWork and Mac Mail.

But I kept hearing myself say things like…

“Janice, you update that document! I don’t even have Word on my machine.”
“No, I didn’t see that email… I can’t see your categories!”
“I can’t update your Powerpoint presentation, the formatting is messed up when it converts to Keynote.”

We needed to make this work, but there was clearly one thing missing in our new relationship…Office for Mac 2011

Congratulations to comment number 23, Suzanne. You have won a copy of Microsoft Office 2010 for PC. Congrats to comment number 53, Kelli. You have won a copy of Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac.

I was thrilled to take my Libre Glass ‘n Poly out of the box and try the organic Ming Mei green tea that was also sent my way. It was delightfully easy. The organic Ming Mei tea comes in individual packs. I simply opened a package, emptied it into the filter, filled my glass with hot water, twisted the filter back on, turned the glass upside down for 90 seconds to brew and voila, my delicious green tea was ready to drink.

With the Glass ‘n Poly, there is also an option of emptying the loose leaf tea directly into the glass, adding hot water, and letting it steep.
