I won a contest!

Do you ever see an online giveaway and think -no one EVER wins those. Yes, I think the same thing. 'Enter this giveaway for your chance to win an iPad..' ya right! Well.. I did enter one, and I won! Really!! and I'm pretty sure the first thing I did says was "OMG no one ever wins these!" Guess I can't say that anymore.

Our entire flooring in our house (minus the bathroom) is Shaw Flooring. They always have great sales, coupons, & giveaways so I signed up to "like" them on facebook. One day last fall I saw a contest they were doing for a before and after gallery and thought sure, why not, I'll enter our house. I might be a little biased, but I think our flooring looks pretty darn good & a HUGE improvement from our little 900 sq ft house having 4 different flooring's when we bought it!
I went to the Shaw website, logged in, uploaded my before and after photos, and completely forgot about the contest.
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!
