Thank you for your support!

On July 5 my heart almost stopped as I saw my dream vacation to the Antarctica being offered in a voting contest. I emailed everyone I could think of to ask for votes. I tried to explain to my friends that it was one vote per email, etc. Receiving more questions than I could respond to, I have created this blog to continue providing answers.

So you will continue reading this blog, I am creating a sweepstakes. Here are the rules:

1. Let me know you have been here by visiting:

http://www.blogyourwaytoantarctica.com/blogs/view/268

2. Come back and tell me what your number was (if you voted) and your means of contact if you are a winner. A vote is not required to win.

3. Entries accepted through midnight on September 30, 2009. Ten winners to be drawn on October 1, 2009.

4. There will be a total of ten prizes added over the next few days. A beginning list is posted below. Prizes will be awarded in order of names drawn.
  • A new Game Boy Advance SP ARV $199.00
  • Victoria's Secret set of five Eau de Parfum spays with glittery gold cover atomizer
  • Terry Cloth Spa bag full of slippers, bath salts, bubble bath, and body lotion

  71. I was 255 but guess since I voted it made me 256. I really hope you win! I read some of the other entries and yours was soooo much better. Plus I sent the link through my facebook and twitter account to have my friends vote for you too. You deserve to win!

    Keep us updated to let us know if you win.
