Enter to Win: $25,000 #SearsKitchen Giveaway

*This post contains sponsored content, but all opinions are my own.  I would love to win a Dream Kitchen!

 Need a kitchen remodel #searskitchen

Blegh.  The pink/peach countertop needs to go…

The one area in my house where I would really love a makeover?

My kitchen.

Not to complain too much, but I am so tired of our 80’s formica countertop and backsplash.  Aren’t they are a little dated?!!  I hope to be able to replace them soon–it’s just taking longer than expected.

I’d also love to add a wall between the kitchen and the living room.  When we bought the house, I liked the openness of it.  Now it drives me crazy.  The first thing guests see when they enter is the kitchen, and I can’t hide any dirty dishes!  :)

$25,000 Dream Kitchen Giveaway

While we’re saving up to make all of these changes, I’ve entered this Sears $25,000 Dream Kitchen Giveaway.  I can only imagine what it would be like to have a “dream” kitchen.  I would love to do a ton of modernizing in my kitchen if I won… and the countertop would definitely be the first thing to go.

You also have a chance to win your dream kitchen in the $25,000 giveaway.  They are giving away several other prizes, too.  In addition to the $25,000 grand prize, there will be 20 $500 Shop Your Way Rewards winners and 60 $250 Shop Your Way Rewards winners.

Coming up next week on November 4th at 3 PM ET, there is an opportunity to participate in the #SearsKitchen Twitter party.  They will be giving away $100, $200, and $300 Sears gift cards during the party.

If you’ve never participated in a Twitter party before, it isn’t too difficult.  Just follow the #SearsKitchen hashtag and watch for questions.  Answer them, retweet posts, and just join in! 

I’ll be there, too.  (You can follow me @StacieAnnNelson if you’re on Twitter!)

Would you change anything about your kitchen?
