We're always on the lookout for free stuff, especially free vacations. On that note, here's a contest we plan on entering: Seven Daughters Ultimate Girls' Getaway contest. (Seven Daughters is a totally affordable blended wine that we drink on Saturday afternoons when we catch up with our DVR watching for the week. It's also tasty enough to serve at your next dinner party with pride.) The prize of the contest is a totally swank trip to L.A. for your plus three friends, including spa trips and a night on the town.
To enter, go to 7Daughters.com. There is a bit of homework involved: You must write a short essay about why you and your pals deserve the trip. You will be judged, so make it good!
We used to judge the Romantic Husband contest for a major woman's magazine. Based on that experience, here's a few words of advice: Under NO circumstances write an acrostic poem. Be original and heartfelt. Stick to the word count. Good luck!
