Summer is my least favorite season. I hate being hot, I don’t enjoy sweating and the creatures that emerge during the heat are usually not the welcome ones. Growing up, Houston summers were the worst. Blinding heat and the air wet and sticky with humidity. You’d walk outside and immediately wonder “Why did I even bother with a shower?” Being inside wasn’t a thrill either because a certain parent wanted to save costs by not turning on the A/C until the house itself was nearly sweating.

They say money doesn’t buy happiness and that’s true to some extent. However, having money sure can turn a lot of problems into non-issues. Extra money probably would have made turning on the A/C to cool an entire home, less of an issue.

To make the start of summer cooler, I’ve again teamed up with a group of bloggers to offer you – my dear, appreciated readers – a chance to win $500 cash money. That’s right, CASH MONEY to kick your summer off right.

    I agree with you about the money not buying happiness…but, the money I could win from this giveaway could definitely get me a great A/C unit for my apartment!!!

    I don’t like the heat at all! This money would be good to buy a new window air conditioner!!! I have one, but it is old, and I don’t ever want to be left without a/c!!!

    Thanks for doing the giveaway. #blmgirl I think I throw it right into our savings acct. My husband and I are saving for a trip to Hawaii for a friend’s wedding next year. We haven’t traveled much since the birth of our daughter and this would be our first trip “kid-free”!

    Now THIS is the kind of giveaway I like 🙂

    I can totally sympathize with your AC problem. I lived in NY for 5 years and during my first summer I didn’t realize that most apartments in NY do not have central air. I didn’t even know the first thing about buying a unit let along how to install it! I finally bought one and had a friend install it for me and it was the BEST investment I made during my time there 🙂

    • Haha, I can relate! In L.A. I lived in the Valley for a time and my apt. didn’t have central air. Valley temps can climb above 100 degrees in the summer! I had a window unit – only in my living room – but that is no match for Valley heat. I spent many summer nights sleeping on my couch, a better alternative to sweating in my bedroom.

    Thank you so much for helping to make this giveaway possible. One person is going to have that extra $500 and I would love to be that blessed individual, as I’m sure everyone that enters would be.
