Enter for a chance to win a $300 Great Wolf Lodge gift card


Great-Wolf-Lodge-giveaway

Giveaway is currently closed! Winner will be announced Monday, March 2 – check back then!

I love Valentine’s Day – and thought it would be fun to celebrate all the *love* I have for YOU and the Queen Bee community. Let’s celebrate by giving away a $300 Great Wolf Lodge gift card!

That’s right, this $300 Great Wolf Lodge gift card is valid at ANY Great Wolf Lodge location, nationwide. Basic rooms range from $200 – $300 before discount codes, so I’m hoping this should get you a FREE night stay (or more if you go off-season!)

If you’ve been following my site for awhile, you know this is one of my favorite things to give away. I love to give these away – because cash or gift cards can so easily go to necessities in life – groceries, clothing and other basic needs. So rarely, when the budget is tight – can we justify expenses like this – which I believe bring families together to create beautiful and joy-filled memories. So I’m hoping this giveaway blesses someone with the mini vacation that they can’t justify, but so badly need or want.

It’s easy to enter. One person will win a $300 Great Wolf Lodge gift card, valid at any U.S. Great Wolf Lodge location. There are FIVE possible entries (I know it’s a lot of entries, but it’s a big prize!). If you cheat, you will totally be disqualified.

Transportation to Great Wolf Lodge location is not included with this giveaway. If the cost of your room exceeds $300, you are responsible for the difference. If your room costs less than $300, you can use the remaining balance of the gift card on food, activities or the gift store at any Great Wolf Lodge.

Albertsons – Winner of cheese basket and $50 Albertsons gift card


Cheese-Board-Albertsons-

Thank you to everyone who sent in photos of your cheese boards! I was so impressed by everyone’s cheese boards and whether you had one kind of cheese or many – the looked delicious.

Albertsons-Cheese-Board-Winner

The winner of the Albertsons cheese basket ($100 value) and a $50 Albertsons gift card is. . .Whitney! Her cheese board is pictured above.

Here is what Whitney had to say about her cheese board, “Here is my entry for the cheese board contest! It has sliced sharp white cheddar cheese, a chunk of Swiss cheese, and some artisan rosemary bread. My favorite part about the board are the antipasto kabobs! Each one is put together a little differently but the cheese is mozzarella. Other ingredients are black olives and green olives that are stuffed with jalapeños, roasted sweet red bell pepper, salami, red leaf lettuce, and cherry tomato. I plan on serving these with a olive oil and balsamic vinegar dipping sauce and a Greek yogurt ranch for the kiddos (not pictured). I added a green apple for color and a few ‘Cuties’ for sweetness.”

I was sold on the antipasto kabobs – what a creative way to combine so many delicious ingredients. These would be great for party appetizers – easier to eat than an antipasto salad!

I received some fantastic entries into the cheese board contest and I wish I could pick more than one winner.

Sponsored post: This post is sponsored by Albertsons – this means that I’m compensated by Albertsons to run this giveaway and Albertsons is providing the cheese basket. I’m pitching in the $50 Albertsons gift card as an added bonus. All content and opinions are my own.

*CLOSED!* Enter to win a 2-night stay at Adrift Hotel (Long Beach, Washington), $250 value!


Adrift-Hotel-Stay-Giveaway

Update – Thanks to everyone entered this giveaway! The winner was selected August 15, 2014. See winner information here.

I’m thrilled to announce a very generous giveaway for Adrift Hotel in Long Beach, Washington. We LOVE this place! In fact, we just had the pleasure of going for two-nights this month and I couldn’t wait to tell you all about it.

Adrift-Hotel-Review-Long-Beach-Washington

Adrift Hotel and Spa is located right on the beach in Long Beach, Washington – about a two-hour drive from Olympia, Washington. It’s our go-to place every time we want to escape to the beach. The rates are affordable, the rooms comfortable and the customer service top-notch. They are incredibly pet-friendly if you like to travel with your four-legged friends, but they also have pet-free rooms available as well.

Adrift-Hotel-Lobby

Adrift Hotel is very urban, chic and minimalist – which I adore. Most all of the design, furniture and decor is made with reclaimed wood and supplies. The lobby is probably one of my favorite hotel lobbies ever.

Adrift-Hotel-Lobby-July-2014

Think pallets and mason jars. It’s minimalist design but still comfortable and hip.

Lobby-Adrift-Hotel-longbeach

The lobby has a great mini-store with snacks, wine, beer and local treats.

Adrift-Hotel-Cold-water-lobby

And complimentary coffee and delicious water – which I love. It’s the little things like this, I think, that make you feel like you’re on vacation. They even have a dog bowl in the lobby, if you’re bringing your pets. There are no coffee pots in the room, but they have fresh-brewed coffee in the lobby that is locally roasted and delicious!

Adrift-Hotel-Free-beach-cruisers-in-lobby

They have a line-up of complimentary beach cruisers for guests to use.

Rooms

Adrift-Hotel-room-review

The Adrift Hotel has two buildings – the main building (West Building) with the lobby, restaurant, etc. and then an East Building with additional rooms. We have stayed in both buildings before and enjoyed them both. This last time we stayed in the East Building and I loved the decor in our room (see photo above). It had “Embrace Family” painted on the wall, simple photography, clean lines and the room was tidy and comfortable.  You can see photos of all Adrift rooms here.

Embrace-Family-Artwork-Adrift-Hotel

We stayed in a room with two queen beds – which works great when we travel with the kids.
