The FedEx man knocked on my door as the boys and I were enjoying lunch. When I opened the door, he said, “My whole truck is for you.” He then proceeded to bring seven boxes of techno-loving goodness through my front door. When I told him that I was hosting a giveaway, he acted like I was a Superstar. I would like to state that I am not a Superstar. I’m a lucky blogger, fully aware of her own blessings this year and excited to bestow some material (techie!) blessings on another family.
And so, I present to you, The Goods.
What’s pictured? (And what’s in the two brown boxes?) Read on.

Stop, Drop & Blog
While I cannot yet tell you what day our (as in Stop, Drop & Blog) giveaway goes live, I can promise to link to each blog on their “go live” giveaway date. I will also note that each blog owner is responsible for making the rules for their own, individual giveaway. Each will differ; some just a little and other greatly. Ours? I’ll let you know as soon as I can!
And now that all of this hardware and software is just sitting in my living room, I ask you, my readers: WHAT should I review? I’ve decided to only review one piece of hardware because I want the winner to receive as much new material as possible. However, HP and Microsoft have both given us the thumbs up on reviewing these items prior to the giveaway. In fact, their ads say that we will be! And so, I’m trying to decide which one would be the most fun. I’m dying to touch the TouchSmart but, let’s be honest, that thing would be covered in peanut butter smears in 2.4 seconds if I opened it in this house with TheBrothers present. That wouldn’t be a great way to send a computer off to our winner. And so, I’ll refrain.
So, opinions? What are you dying to learn about? Leave a comment and let me know!
