CLOSED ~ iPad Giveaway!!!!

Yes, my dear readers, you are reading this right. I have a brand new iPad to give away. If you remember, I was able to go to the Blogalicious Conference this year thanks to my sponsor, Que Rica Vida!

Besides the trip to Miami and the conference, I also received an iPad so I could check out the new Que Rica Vida iPad app. Well, because I work, I missed the Fed Ex delivery of the iPad and had to get it when I was in Miami. Now our household already as an iPad. It belongs to my hubby and he loves it. I rarely use it unless I am looking for recipes on the Que Rica Vida app. I hate to admit this but I am a PC and he is a Mac.

So I thought, do I really need another iPad? And the answer was no. Then I thought, why not give it away on my blog, right? So I am giving it away because that's how I roll peeps, that's how I roll. Now I have to disclose that the winner will receive it without the shrink wrap. The reason being is because I received in Miami, I had to bring it back home to North Carolina. We had to take the shrink wrap off at the airport so they could really see there was an iPad and not some bomb or something. But besides the shrink wrap being gone, it is brand new, never used! I even made a short video so you could see for yourself.



I also want to thank all of you who enter every one of my giveaways! I know who you are and I appreciate your support. And to the newbies here just for the iPad, I hope you look around and enter some of my other giveaways!! Or go visit my other blog, Carolyn in Carolina. Yes, I am trolling for traffic. I just bought my domains and my PR has tanked so I need to get it up, sue me!

Giveaway is open to US residents only who are 18 years of age or older.


Disclosure: I received the iPad from Que Rica Vida as part of my Blogalicious trip. No other compensation was given and I just felt like giving this away to someone else.
