Giveaway: Sexy Strawberries & Chocolate, Baby

One of my favorite things about being a blogger is the fun stuff that ends up at my doorstep. Freebies, samples, and best yet, something like these:

Yes, a whole flat shipped and delivered to my doorstep of juicy, sweet, and shouting have your husband cover me in chocolate strawberries just in time for Easter brunch compliments of California Giant Berry Farm.

One quart down. Then we nibbled, snacked, and smoothied our way to the end of that flat. Did I mention a flat is a ginormous HUGE amount of strawberries?? We certainly got our vitamin C and juicy on that week:

I know you're jealous....

... And I hate to leave anyone of my readers jealous. Nope. Not fun. I am a share the wealth kind of lady.

So, in order to inspire you to get juicy this summer, one of my readers will get their very own strawberry delivery and a $25 Gift Certificate to to get all sports and outdoorsy when they tell me how they would use such a berry bounty! See rules below.

Need some inspiration?

Disclosure: I was not paid to write this post. I was given strawberries and was asked to review if I liked them. Of course, I did! They're strawberries, people!!

Welcome My Minions

For those of you here for the first time or those who followed from my main blog, United States of Motherhood, thank you.  This has been a project a long time in the running.  I am happy to say I am finally making the time to get this started up and am excited to have quite a few reviews lined up for the next few weeks.

Just to be clear, I do not and will not review any product I do not expressly like or use.  So, while being PR friendly, all you companies trying to send me formula and diapers and strollers?  Thank cheezus, that ship has long since sailed.  

What I do like and think my readers will like?  Food, cocktails, tech, gadgets, stuff that will keep my three very active kids entertained for at least 3 minutes, video games, books, fashion, make up,  travel, gift cards, and SHOES!  I am sure there is a crap load of stuff I forgot.  

Feel free to email me at scout *at* unitedstatesofmotherhood {dot} com if you have a product you would like reviewed.
