Months went by, and in April I received an email "Congratulations Abby, you were chosen as the quarterly contest winner!" huh? is this spam? - I opened the email. It looked real, and I did enter a Shaw Flooring sweepstakes.. OMG I won an iPad! :) I had to print off a 4 page legal form, sign and get it notarized, basically saying that the photos I uploaded were in fact mine, that I was a US resident, and 18 or older. I mailed back the forms and within a week I had a brand new iPad show up in the mail. So awesome!! I seriously can't believe that I got an iPad, for free.
Thank you Shaw Flooring & HGTV, I loved you both already, but now I love you even more!
