My First Giveaway!!!

I am beyond excited to be doing my first ever Married in Chicago giveaway! So, I'm going to cut right to the chase. 

What can you win?



A visa gift card worth $50!

With summer right around the corner, I figured we could all use a little extra cash to spend on a new pair of shoes or a fun night out with the girls.

There are three ways you can win this summer spending money. First, you must be a follower of Married in Chicago to participate. If you aren't already a follower, just click that "follow" button over there to the right.

1. Leave a comment on this entry and tell me that you follow me and what you would spend the money on

2. Follow me on twitter and tweet about this giveaway, linking to this post and mentioning @ChicagoWife. Then, come back here and leave a comment letting me know that you tweeted.

3. Write a blog post about this giveaway, linking to this post, and and leave me a comment here letting me know where I can check it out.

The giveaway will end at midnight on April 29th. A winner will be chosen via random.org, so make sure to leave one comment for each entry!

Good luck!
