  i like indie ogden and ben lomond suites and i should win, because my anniversary is coming up and i will probably be too poor to do anything.

  I "like" Indie Ogden and Ben Lomond Suites.

My anniversary is in August. I grew up on the bench in Ogden. I'm awesome. Those are just three reasons I'd love to win. I NEED to win because I am the mom to many and I could REALLY use a staycation! ;)

  I'd love to win because it sounds really fun and fun is just what I need as much as the air that I breathe! Olivia Peach x

  okay, so i would love it if i could win this because i just adore everything about Ogden, Indie Ogden is one of my favorite recent discoveries and i am an unabashed anglophile. to be able to attend tea would just make my summer! =)

i am a poor, starving student & i cannot afford to go anywhere or do much of anything. Indie Ogden has helped open up a world of free, fun things & for that i am eternally grateful! <3

  I would LOVE to win! I've stayed at the Ben Lomond once years ago and loved it. I don't get to come to Ogden enough (even though I'm only 40 minutes away) and I've been wanting to go to afternoon tea.

I like both pages on FB.

  I am so proud to have you as a friend! You have brought so much life to Ogden and I'm sure we all agree you are absolutely amazing! I would love to win because I would enjoy absolutely every second! And I work hard to take care of my baby with a constant positive attitude. We all need a break once and awhile. It's too bad we can't ALL win!

  I we won I would either use the wonderful prize to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary that happens Aug 22. What a year it has been and a major celebration is in order. In one year we have moved, got married, had a baby, started new jobs, found a niche for ourselves in Ogden, and endured each others craziness.
I would give the night to one of our sets of parents to be able to come and stay in Ogden and spend time with their new little grandson and enjoy the surprisingly amazing events and accommodations that Ogden has to offer.

  Liked and liked on FB!

This is an awesome giveaway. I've never stayed in the Ben Lomond hotel before. I'd use the staycation as a reward for surviving a week of throw up at my house!!

Blogger PirateHeather said on July 22, 2011

  After I got laid off two summers ago, I was unable to pay for insurance and to register my car, so I've been looking for a job by bus. So far I haven't been successful. My husband works overtime every week but we're barely able to make ends meet. We're currently saving up to pay our gas bill, it got turned off and we only get to shower about twice a month when we use a relative's bathroom. Hubby's birthday is next month, and of course we don't have any big plans. If I win I can treat him to a nice hot shower, a beautiful afternoon tea, and a much needed break from the stress!

  Omg! I would love, love, Love to win staycation! I'd like to win so I can have a nice weekend off from life to relax before the baby gets here in sept. I could rest my swollen feet! It would be great to spend some time with my man! I would like to stay at BL too cause I haven't ever had the chance and I love how beautiful that hotel is! Please choose me! ;)

  I need a staycation so much. I am 6 months pregnant, and just want some alone time with the husband. Away from family, pets, our dirt house, our dishes, neighbors, and lawn. Something always gets in the way. We need a staycation babymoon!

Blogger Audrey @ Tight Wad in Utah said on July 26, 2011

  Like you both on FB :)

We LOVE Ogden and I would love to take my hubs there for his birthday.

Thanks for the great giveaway!

  I like you both and would LOVE to win because I'm a single mom and never get out to do anything fun! I need some me time with friends.

Blogger Shelley said on July 28, 2011

  We could all use a relaxing staycation and what better place than surrounded by the beautiful Wasatch mountains in downtown Ogden. Sounds like a lovely break from the everyday. Good luck everyone!

Blogger Jackee said on July 29, 2011

  I would love a stay-cation because I dont have time for a va-cation :) I am intrigued by the Ben Lomond as well, what a gorgeous building.
Even if I dont win, I want to say thanks for all you do with your Blog and FB. My family and friends love to come and visit me in Ogden because I always know what is going on around town (thanks to you)and there is always something fun to do here. I hope to get out to a friend meeting event one of these times. Being newer to town, it is a bit hard to meet folks. Thanks again for your dedication to Ogden!
