New “Spot the South Jersey Family Mom Van” Giveaway!
We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.
If you drive around South Jersey AT ALL, chances are you may have seen my South Jersey Family mom van! It’s hard to miss, really – a dark gray Honda Odyssey that has “South Jersey Family” decals on the back window and the two side windows along with a Beatles decal (bonus points if you can name the album it refers to!), an Ocean City, NJ decal (my happy place), a “mom life” decal (self-explanatory) and, soon a sparkly Mickey Mouse decal that I got from the Disney Store Outlet at Jackson Premium Outlets. During Christmas, my mom van sported reindeer antlers and a red nose. Really, if you don’t recognize my van by all the decals and decor, you’ll probably see me dancing in the driver’s seat, doing my best to embarrass/entertain my kids.
Why am I telling you all this? Well, last year, we did a “Spot the South Jersey Family Mom Van” contest through the South Jersey Family Facebook Page. It was a ton of fun, but also a complete headache for me! You guys did your best to follow the directions, but I was scrambling through Facebook trying to find all the entry posts. Needless to say, that giveaway only lasted one month.
In 2020, though? We’re aiming to run this every month starting February 1, 2020, but we’ll be doing things a little differently to keep it all organized!
Here’s how it’s all going to work! Every month, from the first to the last day, we’ll be running a giveaway in the Real Moms of South Jersey Facebook Group. If you haven’t already joined, go ahead and do so! Right now, it’s a smaller group, but it’ll continue to grow and accomplish great things as the Facebook Page, Instagram Feed, and this blog have. On the first day of the month, I’ll post an “official” post about that month’s giveaway. All you need to do is keep an eye out for the South Jersey Mom Van while out and about. If you see it, snap a quick photo and upload it as a comment on that “official” post. At the end of the month, I’ll randomly select one participant to win a giveaway. Easy peasy, right?!
I do have a few ground rules though:
- DO NOT take a photo while you’re driving! I promise, as awesome as the giveaway may be, it is NOT worth risking your life to take a photo while driving. If you’re in the passenger seat, go for it, but DO NOT take a photo while you’re driving!
- DO NOT include my license plate number. Yes, I’m sure it’s pretty easily accessible information, but I’d just prefer it NOT be in photos please and thank you.
- DO NOT take photos in front of my house. Again, probably pretty easily accessible information, but…just don’t. I enjoy my privacy while at home just as you do.
- DO NOT follow me. I mean, that should just be a given, but…be respectful.
If you see me out and about, though…please say “hi!” I love meeting you guys and knowing that there are people out there that follow and love South Jersey Family literally gives me the energy and creativity needed to continue publishing and growing because it can be exhausting sometimes!
Sound good? If you’re not in the group, I hope you’ll join the Real Moms of South Jersey community on Facebook! See you over there and good luck!
