Bad Moms Gonna Hang At The Home Show

By on September 27, 2010

I don’t know about you, but I’m on this eternal quest to manage house and home and a big part of that quest – which has, I’m pretty sure, no real end (hence me calling it ‘eternal’) – is regular side-trips into the Forests of Fixing Up and the Valleys of Renovation and the Oases of Home Appliance Upgrades. So when something like the Home Show – a veritable Epcot Center and World Showcase of all the Lands of Home Improvement – comes around, I am totally, totally there. Which is to say, I will totally be there, when the Home Show comes to Toronto, next week.

You wanna come with?

We’re holding a little contest – just a little leave your name in the comments and we’ll randomly select winners kind of contest – for tickets to the Home Show. Which is awesome in itself, because, you know, HOME SHOW, but the winners will also be invited to brunch with me, Catherine, Bad Mom Extraordinaire, and Catherine Marion of The Mom Show next Saturday (October 3, if you want to make a note on your calendar), after which we can all go ogle home improvement stuff at the Home Show, stuff like Whirlpool appliances, one of which one of you will receive! Just for you! (which, seeing as there’s only going to be three of you,* is, like, almost better odds than getting one on sale at Home Depot.)

How awesome is that?

No need to answer. It’s too awesome.

So. If you’re in or able to commute to the Toronto area, and feel like having a swish brunch (during which I promise I will not whip out pictures of my recent travels. Unless you ask, in which case, all bets will be off) and a fun afternoon and maybe a brand new top-o’-the-line home appliance, leave a comment. You have until Thursday morning – say, 10-ish am – and we’ll announce the winner mid-day.

Do it! We will have an AWESOME time, imagining what it might be like to have mastery over our homes through the magic of renovations and appliances and expert advice on making your house energy efficient and commiserating over our understanding that mastery over our homes and households? Ha! and our sincere shared belief that good appliances can nonetheless be as reassuring as a killer pair of shoes. Also, we can stalk Ty Pennington.

Ready, set… comment!

*we’ll only pick three people – so, one of you three will win an awesome brand new Whirlpool appliance (dishwasher, anyone?) – but the winners get two tickets, so you can each bring a friend. WHEE!

UPDATE: And the winners aaaaarrrre… Melissa Ann, Melissa and Sam. Congratulations!
