Ford Fusion American Idol House Party


"I need you like water, like breath, like rain." Okay, so I'm channeling my inner LeAnn Rimes, but I really do need you.  

I need you/would love for you to VOTE FOR ME in the Ford/American Idol sweepstakes.

On May 19, 2009, the finale of American Idol will air. People from all over the United States will host parties with their friends and family gathered. Out of 9,000 only 1,000 were chosen to host a party for Houseparty.com. I was 1 of 1,000.

Now that I have my required 10 guest, I am an official host. On the day of the event, my guests will receive a 'goodie bag' and get an upclose look at the new 2010 Ford Fusion. I have other special events scheduled as well like karaoke and games. We are going to have loads of fun.

As a host, I have been given the opportunity to win my very own Ford Fusion. This is where you get involved.

Voting has begun on the sweepstakes portion. You will have to fill-out your information, but this will also qualify you to win a prize as well. They are giving away ten $500 gift cards and twenty $100 gift cards.

I would love to win a new car. Who wouldn't? On top of the car, I also can win a trip to the American Idol finale in LA. Can you say "amazing"?

Voting started yesterday and ends at 11:59 PM EST on May 14, 2009. That gives me 2 weeks to get the word out.

As a way of saying THANKS to all the people who aided in getting me votes, I will award 1 person a goodie bag from the house party. If you have not checked out Houseparty.com, you should go now. Their goodie bags are always so great, and I can only imagine what will be included for the Ford/American Idol event. Also, you will receive a coupon for a free appetizer or dessert to T.G.I.Friday's (up to $8) as well as a $2.00 off Dove's new Wild Rose deodorant. And to top things off, I will send you a Essence of Beauty Foot Bath valued at $100. It includes a foot bath, spa slippers, emory board, and more. 

To receive your entry, all you have to do is click on the link below. Follow the instructions on the site. 


Once you have submitted your vote, come back to this post and leave 1 comment saying you voted for me. I have access to a page that shows me all the people who voted for me, so please be honest about your entry.

If you would like additional entries, please tweet this message:

The prizes:
  • A 'goodie bag' from the Ford/American Idol House Party
  • A coupon for a free appetizer or dessert from T.G.I.Friday's
  • A coupon for $2.oo off the new Dove Wild Rose deodorant
  • A Essence of Beauty foot bath valued at $100
As you can see, I mean business. I know this seems like a lot to ask of you (really it isn't, I do things like this all the time for people), but I really could use this car. The trip would be great, but the car is a necessity at the moment. 

I appreciate your time and understanding. Know that I am grateful.


Speaking of grateful, Trisha from MomDot.com, one of the best mom blogs out there, is hosting a birthday party in honor of her 31st birthday. For the entire month of May, starting today, MomDot.com will have a prize to giveaway. I guess she's grateful she gets to see another, wonderful year, so she's rewarding us as well. Thanks Trisha.

Head on over to MomDot.com and find out how you can win some great prizes.

THE CASE: Shamelessly plugging a contest so that I CAN WIN!
THE VERDICT: Guilty!
