Shake off the winter blues contest

If you're like me winter is not the most fabulous of all the seasons.  Summer is my favorite.  I can't get enough of the sunshine and garden.  Spring and fall aren't too bad themselves but winter I have a hard time working up a fondness for.  It's not winter's fault of course.  Its just being what it was created to be, but oh how I long for summer.  To help give winter a better name I decided to have a contest.  A kind of  'make your own sunshine' sort of thing. How does a $35 gift certificate sound?  Money you can spend on just about anything you would like.  You can even put it towards a truly summer thing like a swing set!  Really!  The great people at the CSN Stores have offered  a $35 gift certificate for me to give to one of my lucky readers.  How cool is that?  Consider it a little boost to brighten someones wintry days.  I have checked out their site for swing sets and more found they have all sorts of summery play things.  I think my favorite was the kids play cafe tent.  It is a little tent complete with an awning so your kids can set up their own wee bistro!  I would have loved that as a little girl.  Actually, I could have fun with that now!  For under $40 it is pretty neat. 

So to win this all you have to do is visit the link and let me know what you would love to spend the gift certificate on.  Easy peasy right?  I will choose a random winner from the comments next Friday.  Good luck to everyone!
