For months now, I have been scouring the internet, entering every Hayneedle baby giveaway that I could find. I entered faithfully, subscribing to lots of fantastic new blogs, and tweeting my heart out. Yet every single time, someone else’s number came up.
Earlier this month, Hayneedle and iVillage joined forces and hosted a giveaway for the chance to win a “Dream Nursery.” The grand prize was a $5,000 Hayneedle.com gift card, and there were 25 $100 gift card winners as well. I figured if I could at least win one of the $100 gift cards, I could put it towards a new crib that we so desperately need. After all, Hayneedle.com has the best prices on cribs that I’ve found.
So, I entered the contest. It was called the “Moment of Discovery Contest,” and to enter, you needed to upload a photo of yourself recreating the moment you found out you were expecting. Here’s my entry:
I WON! I didn’t just win one of the$100 runner up prizes, I won the grand prize! A $5,000 Hayneedle.com gift card! I never, ever expected it to happen. There were so many other great entries!
I’ve been in tears since I found out. We’ll be able to get the baby a crib – along with all the other gear he could possibly need. I never realized just how much Hayneedle.com carries – they have everything from breast pumps to baby monitors to educational toys – and MORE!
I’m still in shock, but I am so incredibly thankful for this. God has certainly blessed me above and beyond what I deserve.
I promised the wonderful people at Hayneedle.com that I would share all the wonderful things I buy with my readers and give you all my thoughts about the process of ordering, shipping, and the products themselves. It’s the least I can do since they’ve been so wonderful to me.
So, there’s the big, exciting news. I can’t wait to start shopping! I already know the first thing I’m getting: this glider. I cannot survive another pregnancy or newborn stage without a good glider to get me through.
Have any happy news you want to share with me? I’d love to hear it, since you took the time to listen to mine!
