Mother's Day Giveaway - Multi-color Chandelier Teardrop Necklace and Earrings Set + SURPRISE GIFT (CLOSED)

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and most people are considering what kind of gift they could get that will show their moms just how special they are. It's the perfect time to think about everything Mom has done for you and how much sweeter your life is with her in it! From the nights she spent sitting up with you when you were sick to the lessons she taught that you'll never forget...Mom's a pretty special lady.

Whether Mother's Day makes you think of your actual mother or someone else who cared for you, loved you, and always had your back (your mother at heart) - Mother's Day is a wonderful way to give a small thanks for everything she has done.

The Contest:

I want to know your sweetest/funniest/most touching story about you and your mother. Maybe it was something she said that has never left you, a funny thing she did, or something the two of you shared that was special. Leave a comment telling me all about it!

The main winner will be chosen with Random.org and will receive the sponsored gift (below), but 2 other winners will be chosen based on their stories and will receive SURPRISE gifts! They'll all get there in time for Mother's Day, incase you want to surprise that special lady with these fabulous items.

The Prizes:

The first prize was generously donated by The Caged Fairy on Etsy. She has remarkable and stunning jewelry that is unique and beautiful. Any mother would be proud to wear this gorgeous jewelry and her eyes will light up when she opens the box! Stop by The Caged Fairy shop and heart it to let her know we're thankful for the chance to win!!

One winner will receive the multi-color chandelier teardrop necklace and earrings set - and will be chosen by Random.org. This beautiful set can literally be worn with anything - from a party gown to a blouse and jeans. Mom's going to love it!

TWO other winners (chosen based on the stories left in the comments) will receive mystery gifts for their moms or themselves! So exciting!!

To get you started, I'll share a sweet memory with you. I remember being at a shopping mall once with my mother - I must have been maybe 4 or 5. I was carrying a balloon on a string. As we got ready to cross the parking lot, I let go of the balloon and it started to float into the air. I got ready to run after it, and my mother grabbed me. "Let it go," she said. "We can get another balloon but we can't get another Samantha." I thought that was very sweet and for some reason, it has stuck with me all this time!

Okay - your turn, and good luck with the contest! It will end April 21 @ 8PM EST.
