going on vacation and doing a give away

We leave for vacation on Saturday morning. And when I say we, I mean the married kids, too!!

My husband loves New England, so north we go, on a ferry, to an island.


And this year, in order to make it more fun, my daughter and I decided that we will have a give away!!!!

We are doing a Black Dog give away, since Black Dog originated in Martha's Vineyard!!

And they have super cute stuff!


For those of you unfamiliar with the brand, or their stores, here's a little bit about them:

The first Black Dog General Store opened on Water Street in Vineyard Haven in 1992. Today, there are eighteen Black Dog Stores. On Martha's Vineyard, stores are located in Vineyard Haven, Edgartown and Oak Bluffs. On the Mainland, you'll find stores in Falmouth, Provincetown, Chatham, Nantucket and Newburyport, MA, as well as Newport, RI, Portland, ME, Mystic, CT and Annapolis, MD.

What do these Black Dog townships have in common? The ocean, for one. A nautical heritage and a safe harbor are imperative. The Black Dog Tall Ships do visit these towns.

More importantly, these are towns that have much in common with The Black Dog, an appreciation for tradition, a love of the sea and all things authentically New England. Falmouth and Chatham offer Main Streets that are quintessentially New England. Our Newport store is located on Bannister's Wharf, once the center of commerce for colonial Newport. Provincetown retains much of its New England seaport character.

While you can get their products from their online store, their orgins come straight from New England, specifically, Martha's Vineyard.

So, what can you win and how?

Maybe a cowlneck pullover?

..or how about a super cute tote?

Of course, there's the classic Black Dog Martha's Vineyard t-shirt, too.

One of you lucky ladies will win something from The Black Dog store in Martha's Vineyard, and you'll be able to help us decide what exactly it will be!  We wanted to wait until we actually got to the store to decide, so we're taking some nudges from you in helping us in our decision!

So how can you win?

All you have to do is tell me in one comment where you would go on your dream vacation, and let us know what you think the prize should be.

For extra entries:
{one} go to my daughter's blog and tell her what was the best vacation you've ever had.
{two} be a follower of mine.
{three} be a follower of Chloƫ's.
{four} post about the giveaway on your blog.

Seperate comments for each, please!

We will be drawing from entries from both blogs, so if you tell ChloĆ« you follow her on her blog, there's no need to come back and tell me, and vice versa.  Your entry will be counted.

We'll announce the winner on the 22nd.

Hello, I'm hopping over here from Chloe's blog for the extra entry! Ah, my dream vacation would definitely be Italy. My husband and I have been wanting to go for a long time, but we have a lot of saving to do before we can go. And I think we'd need about a month off of work to see everything too. So we'll have to wait a while! But that is one place we want to go to before we die.

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog about the music leaving and coming back home! :)

If I could go on a dream vacation, I would go back to China for vacation. Even though we have traveled there twice to adopt, that's more like a "working" vacation if you know what I mean! LOL! Going there to sightsee would be fabulous!

Have fun on your vacation. We just returned from visiting precious family in Virginia and had the best time.

Janet, Kevin, Ted, Philip, and Elijah
