GIVEAWAY-It's the Ross "Back to School" CHALLENGE!

Hola everyone!

Like many of you who attended Blogher, I'm still recovering! It's taken a little longer than expected since I seem to have picked up a rather nasty bug from one of the 3,500 or so ladies I spent the weekend with. I hate being sick! It really gets me down. So I decided to cheer myself up by doing a little GIVEAWAY!

I admit it, I'm a Ross-aholic!
Before Blogher, I was contacted by the good folks at Ross Dress for Less to do a follow up post to the "Dress for Less" challenge we did a couple of months ago. THIS time, it's all about "Back to School". How much "Back to School" swag can I score at Ross for $25? A LOT!

Since I generously gave my "Blogher Bug" to my daughter, I figured she needed some cheering up too. So I found some seriously peppy school supplies that will keep her smiling well into the fall. WARNING: the following photo contains quantities of pink that may be unsuitable for cynical readers.

Here's the breakdown:

$10 Hello Kitty Backpack
$7 Hello Kitty Lunchbox
$2 Disney Princess notebook with matching pencils, pencil sharpener, eraser, memo pad and calculator
$2 Assorted pink fancy hair scrunchy-thingys
$4 4-pack pink socks

NOT BAD, right? Think you can do better? Then BRING IT. That's right, I'm challenging one of you to take the Ross "Back to School" Challenge! One of you will win a $25 Ross gift card to help your kid(s) look forward to Fall.

Here's how to enter:
1. Leave a comment sharing what part of "Back to School" you're most looking forward to.
2. Like Ross Dress for Less on Facebook and leave a comment saying you did (or leave a comment letting us know you already do)
3. Like Nacho Mama's Blog on Facebook and leave a comment saying you did (or leave a comment letting us know you already do)

Maximum 3 entries per person, US residents only. Contest closes midnight PST, August 14th. Winner will be selected at random using Random.org and announced here Monday, August 15th.

Wishing you love and GOOD LUCK with extra cheese-
Nacho Mama

PS-Those heels I wore while dancing in the Blogher flashmob? Got 'em at Ross.

Growing up buying clothes for back to school was always my favorite part. I don't have kids, but secretly enjoy helping my nieces shop for back to school outfits.

Hmmmm. Back to school favorite. The kids will not be home all day and this year the 3 year olds go to pre-school for 2 1/2 hours that translates to ME TIME! Woo hoo!
