{CLOSED} iPad2 Giveaway

Yes. You read that right.

We’ve had some great giveaways these last few weeks…but I’ve saved the granddaddy of them all for last…

This sleek little old tablet could be yours this Christmas!

(And by little old tablet, I mean…brand spanking new machine that is going to wow your socks off.)

This week, it’s a 16 GB WiFi iPad2, your choice of black or white, your choice of polyurethane cover.




We’ll also get you hooked up with the digital (or print) versions of each of my cookbooks, The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook (print version, digital not yet available) along with The $5 Dinner Mom Does Breakfast and Lunch and my latest e-book, Holiday Entertaining Guide!
