Christmas Date Night Giveaway!

Christmas Date Night Giveaway!

Some people say Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, and for the most part I agree with that. But it surely can be stressful. I feel like it is an endless game of coordinating schedules, who is buying what present for who, what party or event is happening on that date, when are my kids Christmas programs at school or church, and the list can go on. On a side note, does anyone feel like you are just exchanging money with your siblings for presents? “I want a Patagonia hat and in exchange I will send you a gift card to the store of your choice…” That really isn’t how my siblings do it, but its close!

As I look back on the year I am so thankful for all the many blessings that my family has enjoyed. We are healthy, my almost 2 year old son finally decided to sleep through the night, we moved to a fantastic neighborhood, and we have been so blessed by our clients and the business of the real estate market in Fort Wayne. I am so thankful that there are people out there that entrusted me to help sell their home and others that allowed me to be a part of the home buying process! I really do love meeting new people, walking through some of the great homes in the Fort Wayne area, and learning more about those families and their stories.

I want to thank everyone for their support and for entrusting me with your real estate needs! If you feel like you are stressed, need a date night or you just want to go out for dinner and drinks with some friends I want to help you out! I have partnered with my favorite restaurant in Fort Wayne, Tolon, to help make this week a little less stressful for someone! I will be giving away a $75 gift card to Tolon. Tolon is Fort Wayne’s first farm to table restaurant which uses the best local ingredients for amazing dishes! You can read more about it here. It is a fantastic atmosphere and I promise you it will be a great night filled with fantastic food, drinks and conversations!

Since you are probably also needing to pick up a few gifts I am throwing in a $50 Target gift card to help complete your shopping, and a $20 Conjure Coffee gift certificate to give you an extra kick to get through the holidays! You will have three chances to win. 1 – LIKE, SHARE, AND TAG me on this post on my Facebook Page. 2 – Comment on this blog below with your favorite Christmas Memory. 3 – Like my Realtor Page on Facebook.

As always thank you so much for participating in my giveaways and if you are looking for any advice with buying or selling please let me know! If you are thinking of selling your house in 2018 I would love the chance to give you a free market analysis on what your home may be worth! Contact me if you would like any information about selling your home.

Have a Merry Christmas and a blessed 2018!

    TOLON is truly unique to Fort Wayne and a favorite restaurant of mine and target…. who could go wrong?! I’ve never tried the coffee shop but I’m sure they are amazing 😉

  • Lindsey

    December 18, 2017 at 5:15 pm

    Oh man, choosing one favorite is hard! We moved to Missouri when I was five, so we always traveled back to the Chicago area to see family for Christmas. One year, we got stranded in a blizzard. We made it to a hotel which also had a restaurant, thankfully! As a kid, it was such a fun experience and a little bonus vacation on top of seeing family. My mom, brother, and I had a blast playing in the snow, the drifts were taller then me!

  • Abby Cramer

    Favorite Christmas memory… every year we would sing Christmas carols around our Christmas tree and drink egg-nog. Then every Christmas morning we’d read the Jesus story from the book of John and hand out all the presents! Christmas was the best and still is even as an adult!

  • Shawn Bell

    My favorite Christmas memory is from last year, my youngest granddaughter got stuck on the song I want a Hippopatomus for Christmas, all day & night she would sing it. So we bought her a small hippo toy and stuck it in her stocking, at first she was very bewildered… then it dawned on her and we all had a wonderful laugh.

  • Melissa Stemen

    Finding antique tin coasters to give my dad that reminded him of his grandparents. It was so neat to see his face light up when he opened this unexpected gift.

    It’s hard to nail down a nail down a single favorite Christmas memory, but one has to be driving around looking at decorated houses with my parents. It’s also a new favorite memory because my three year old is really getting into Christmas this year, and gets so excited at seeing the decorations, and that makes it a fresh and special experience.

    My favorite Christmas memory would have to be my family always sitting around the living room in our PJs after opening presents with cinnamon rolls and hot chocolate when we were young. I always love that time relaxing with family and enjoying the coming of Christ together.

  • Emily Sabin

    December 18, 2017 at 10:11 pm

    Love that you’re doing this! My favorite Christmas memory is when one year, when I was maybe 9yrs old, my parents surprised us by taking us to see a movie. We very rarely saw movies in the theater because it was expensive to take our whole family, but as a special Christmas treat they bought us candy and everything! My siblings and I thought it was the coolest thing ever 🙂

    Tough call on a favorite Christmas Memory…
    This would probably have to be the year after our house burned down when I was a kid. It burned down in early December and we stayed with friends until we could find a place to stay. Though there weren’t many presents that year and we were not in “our” house, it was the best Christmas because we were together. My sister and brother were home from college—-it was all quite sentimental.

  • Alison Bauer

    December 19, 2017 at 12:43 am

    my favorite Christmas memory is being a kid and being so excited to see what gifts we had to open up Christmas morning. my father would make me and my siblings wait while he made sure we had some gifts to open.

  • Kiara Kreger

    December 19, 2017 at 1:56 am
