I'm A FINALIST!!! Ready? Set? BLOG!!! - Baltimore,MD - April 2012

 I've been watching a lot of the award shows lately... The CMA's, The Grammy's, The Academy Awards, and 3 nights ago the ACM Awards.  I just love the suspense and watching the faces of the nominees just before they announce the winner. That's a little how I felt the morning I woke up to find an e-mail from Su Casa sitting in my inbox. I was sort of transported back to my senior year in high school when I was opening college admissions letters. Did I make it? Am I in or out...? I almost jumped out of my chair when I read the words, "We are happy to announce that you've been chosen as a finalist..."

I am a finalist in the "Test it. Blog it. Win it." promotion at Su Casa!!!
My dear friend Ashley and Anna hate the excessive use of exclimation points and capital letters, but...

SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YAY! YAY!! YA!!!

In case this is the first you're hearing about it, The "Test it. Blog it. Win it." contest” asks a select group of bloggers to document the entire process of creating, ordering, and living with customized furniture from their store. At the end of June they will take a bunch of factors into account and on July 1st, they'll announce that one of their featured furniture testing bloggers has won everything they've been demoing in their home. The cool part though is that even if you aren’t the BIG winner, just by being selected as a finalist blogger you have the opportunity, at the end of the contest, to purchase your custom furniture at 50% off the retail price.

Out of all the submissions, I have been chosen, along with 16 others, to be one of their featured bloggers. I'll be blogging about custom dining furniture and I can't stress how much I will need your help!

The way Su Casa makes their decisions on the winner are creativity, quality and frequency of posts, Feedback and commentary on each post, and traffic from the blog sites back to the Su Casa website. I'll do my best to keep the posts coming and make them entertaining, informative and creative, but I need your help on those last 2; Feedback and commentary on each post, and traffic from my blog back to the Su Casawebsite. This is the one part of the contest that is actually quantifiable, meaning they have a way of seeing where their website traffic sources from and they can also go to our blogs to see how many comments we have on our posts.

NOTE TO READER: You DO NOT have to live in Baltimore to look at, dream about, and buy furniture from Su Casa!  Which means you DO NOT have to live in Baltimore to help me win a fantastically beautiful dining set by commenting on my blog and checking out their website. 

Over the next few months we'll do some fun stuff to get you in the Su Casa Spirit.
OH and there will be a couple of GIVEAWAYS that just might be based on who my most loyal and frequent commenters are. 

NOTE TO SU CASA AMPLOYEES: You may not have been able to participate in the "Test it. Blog it. Win it." promotion, but you are more than welcome to participate in my giveaways.  (If you need an alious I understand just make it the same one every time you comment.) Based on what I've read in the "Our Story" section of the website, Y'all are some of their best customers!

So join us for some dining furniture fun!

READY...? SET...? BLOG!!!

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!
