Intel Tablet Giveaway

#spon: I am in a partnership with Intel. They provided a tablet for the giveaway.

I am a tablet lover. It’s true. Managing a family of five is increasingly hectic so if I can have one thing that can be used to store recipes, entertain my kids, read emails, sync my family’s calendars, and fit in my diaper bag by darn I am a fan. Admittedly our family owns three: Mom’s, Dad’s and one passed down to the kids when Daddy got a newer version. Dad loves it to read, Mom checks the weather on it to dress the kids every morning and the kids love a wealth of games and videos they can hold in their little hands.

Now I believe in sharing what one loves and what better time to share than at the beginning of holiday shopping season?! Could you use an extra tablet? I believe we all could and if you can’t I bet you know someone on your Christmas list who can use one of these Intel Tablets and friends that will make a mighty fine gift.
Win an Asus Memo Pad 8 #giveaway #inteltablet

So what do I love about this particular tablet? Well besides the fact that it has an 8 inch screen, 16 GB of storage, a 5 MP camera, and 9 hours of battery life, it comes in four fabulous colors including the totally on trend gold. But wait, there’s more. It is on Amazon right now for the family friendly price of just $199!! What?!

Now on to the Intel tablet giveaway.

TO ENTER simply comment below answering this question…

“What would you use the device for or why would you like to win it?”

That’s it! We’ll choose a winner from the comments. Good Luck!

Giveaway will run through 10/17/2014.
