Win Stuff!

Melting Mama and I have stuff to give away!

Theme: Ice-cream! Mmmmm

This is what we have: 4 gift baskets and 4 ice-cream makers! We will have 1 gift basket and an ice-cream maker with us at each OH event. Philly and LA! All you have to do is be there, come and join us for some fun and at the end we will have a drawing for each item!

For those of you that can’t attend the event – we didn’t forget you – you’ll get a chance too, right here on our BLOGS! And for those of you that ARE coming - double the chance! For each event we’re also celebrating with our ObesityHelp online friends and our blog readers by doing a giveaway on our blogs. One for Philly right now and then we’ll do another one when we get closer to LA.

So what's in the baskets?

Click Espresso Protein drink 1 lb container
Click Gym Bag (*note - in the OH Event Baskets only)
Chef Aerolatte Hand Blender
Ice Cream Scoop
4 Fluted Ice Cream Dishes
2 Bottles of Sugar Free Torani Syrup (Vanilla and Caramel)
2 Bags of Sugar Free Cookies (Lemon & Coconut Cookies)
1 Jar of Sugar Free Ice Cream Topping

But But... What about the ice-cream makers?

Cuisinart 1-1/2-Quart Automatic Ice Cream Makers (my personal fav)

*We want to thank Click Espresso Protein for contributing 4 cans of their awesome protein and 2 gym bags to our baskets! We also want to thank for contributing 4 really amazing ice-cream makers to our giveaways.

Okay already sooooo how do I get a chance to win?

For the ice-cream maker you must go to Melting Mama’s blog and follow her directions! (Good luck)

For the Blogger Basket, Here's what you need to do:

Just leave a comment (include your name and an email addy - edited to add: if you are uncomfortable with putting your email addy just make sure I can identify you maybe if you are an OH member you could put your username instead.) on this blog posting by October 4th midnight PST and Monday, October 6th in the morning I'll draw a name using a random number generator and announce the winner.

Disclaimers: this contest is open to anyone in the 48 contiguous states ('cause I am too cheap to mail elsewhere)

One entry per person.

***Please be sure to check back next week to see if you are the winner. If I don't hear back from you (with a shipping address) by October 10th, I'll choose another winner.***

Good Luck! Hey and remember right before the LA event we'll be doing this again.
