Win a Kenmore Washer/Dryer or Dishwasher!

Crazy Cleaning Confessions Blog Tour

You can enter this fun contest to win a washer/dryer or dishwasher from Kenmore! The best part of this contest is that Kenmore will donate $5.00 for each video submission and $.50 for each vote cast to the Jane Goodall Institute's Roots & Shoots program, which aims to make positive change happen — for our communities, for animals and for the environment. With tens of thousands of young people in almost 100 countries, the Roots & Shoots network branches out across the globe, connecting youth of all ages who share a common desire to help make the world a better place. So, even if you don't submit a video, mark your calendars and start voting on September 11th so you can help a great cause (and, watch some fun videos).
My crazy cleaning confession? I had my first house for 5 years before I had Haley. Looking back, I must have been bored a lot because I cleaned my house all the time! My friends made fun of me! I'd skip on the chance to go out for coffee so I could stay home to clean and organize. Crazy for sure! I'd move the appliances once a month to clean under them. I would vacuum my way out of each room and create this perfect design of vacuum marks in the carpet. Now, I would much rather spend time with my family than clean the house! I have a confession........I haven't cleaned under the appliances in well over a year and you won't find perfect vacuum marks in the carpet.
So share YOUR nutty, crazy cleaning habits by submitting your video to http://www.youtube.com/Kenmore and you'll be entered in this great contest! OFFICIAL CONTEST RULES HERE.
Finalists will be selected from September 7-10 and beginning September 11, fans can vote for their favorite confession and help three lucky finalists win brand new appliances.

I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Kenmore and received a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.

1 can chicken gumbo soup

1 C. ketchup

2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp mustard
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
garlic salt, pepper, oregano to taste
Brown hamburger, drain. Mix meat and all other ingredients in a medium to large saucepan and heat on low until warm. Serve on buns and enjoy!
