Simply My Life Sweepstakes

As a wife and mama of 5 kids (and one more due in May), I am always looking for ways to simplify my life to make it more enjoyable. I am super busy! You moms know what I mean, the kids school events & projects, doctor appointments and just the day to day grind of household duties, even blogging can be time consuming. It is often hard to balance it all without forgetting things that need to be done. I also happen to be one of the most forgetful people you will ever know. Seriously, sometimes I forget details about what happened within the week. I am super excited about the "Simplify My Life Sweepstakes", because having an HP Mini will help me smooth out all the bumps & get things in order for my family. Things that keep my life hectic are the monthly prenatal exams, my sons weekly speech therapy sessions, my husbands doctor appointments every three months, and then there are the regular dental and well child exams to squeeze in. Add to these appointments, the extended family events, helping out with my aging father, babysitting nieces and nephews from time to time, teaching a class at church, keeping up with bills, shopping trips, meal planning and cooking, 3 loads of laundry daily, the list goes, on and on, and on......Mind you, I am not complaining, just being real.

As a busy mom, I must always make time to enjoy the "moments". What I mean is, I take time out to enjoy each child in some small way. I talk to them individually or have them help me individually while we talk about anything. I cherish these "moments". I also make time for these "moments" with my husband, we talk about our life, our memories and plans we have and then we express our appreciation for one another. It means the world to me when I can express how I feel without feeling rushed to get something else done.

I know without a doubt that I would function a whole lot better with a bit of help from a sweet HP Mini, to keep me organized and on top of things, and I would definitely have more sweet and precious "moments" to enjoy!

HP teamed up with 5-time Olympian Dara Torres (aka-Supermom) to show you how you can use the HP Mini with Windows® 7 Home Premium to simplify your everyday tasks, work the way you want, and make new things possible.

  1. I entered this too! I wish you luck in winning =)

  2. I entered, too! Good luck to all of us!

  3. Good luck on the contest! I hope to win one too!

  4. I also entered :-)
    I love participating in things like this! Good luck everyone!!

  5. I never win anything but I'll see what i can do to help you out! Sounds like you will need it with six kids. I admire the women who dare to still have big families. I wish I would have had more kids but I'm grateful for the ones I have = )


  6. Oh I would LOVE this. My goal for the new year is to be more organized. I hope I win!!!

  7. A mini would definitely simplify my life because I wouldn't have to lug around that big heavy laptop anymore!! And it would fit inside my handbag instead of being so conspicuous in a carry around laptop bag. And besides, you don't always want to carry your laptop with you but leaving it in the car is a direct invitation to thieves to break in and steal it. Being able to carry it in my purse is a major advantage! Great giveaway!

  8. OK so how do I enter?? lol..Or did I just enter haha

  9. thanks to all good luck I hope one of you wins!!

  10. awww- this would make this mama so very happy ;)

  11. Would love to win one:) Would definitely make life easier. Thanks!!


  12. I entered too!
    This HP 100 Mini netbook would be a blessing to our family, too, as we only have one old desktop to share amongst our family of 7. We rely heavily on spreadsheets, lists,email and schedules, etc. to streamline our day to day activities, and the portability of the HP 100 mini would make it so effortless and stylish. Plus, mobile computing would be perfect to pass the time--when time stands still--like when waiting in a doctor's office!

    Good Luck Everyone!

  13. An HP Mini 110 would simplify my life by allowing me to keep up with all of my computer activities (blogging, emailing, entering contests, social networking, surfing the Internet, etc.) when I'm not able to be on my laptop (which just so happens to be an HP) for whatever reason. With 4 kids, the reason I'm not able to be on my laptop could be anything! :O

  14. Wow! I could really use a HP mini to simplify my life. I have a kid going into kindy and a new baby, moved to a new state and trying to manage tons of appointments and schedules. This would really help me out.

  15. I hope we both win! Happy New Year!

  16. Oh my, you sound incredibly busy, you deserve this! I would love to win as well. :)

  17. Good luck!! Hope you win! (me too! LOL)

  18. We are expecting our 10th child and homeschool so a second computer would be an amazing blessing. Thanks for the opportunity.

  19. I would love to win this laptop because it would help make me be able to communicate when I am mobile. I don't have a iPhone, nor a iPod Touch, and I really don't have a way to communicate with friends and family when I am on the road. Winning this laptop would give me that ability. Thank you for this chance! It would be incredible to win this.

  20. I'm loving all these winter blog pages ~ so cute!

    & I would adore this HP mini! I've been wanting a netbook for a long time now and just learned over Christmas that some have Windows 7. We travel a lot and this would be the perfect take-along netbook. I dream of returning to China someday and the HP mini would definitely be in my carryon!

  21. Good luck! I entered, too:

  22. I would like to have a small computer like this to be able to take anywhere for everyday tasks.

  23. i would love to simplify my life by taking the net with me wherever i go!

    would love to win!

  24. I entered too! Best of luck:)

  25. It would be so convenient to have a netbook for on-the-go computing, and this one is so pretty.

  26. I was looking at the HP mini Tord and Windows 7 and love all the features of both. The laptop is beautiful and Windows 7 features would really simplify my life. I love that it has a large HD and it has quick access features to find the files I need. And there is fast web surfing.

    Good luck!


  27. I have entered on a number of sites hoping to boost my chances of winning. Good luck to everyone

  28. I would love to win this mini. It would definitley help organize and simplify my life.

  29. Wow! Congrats on the baby on the way too! Good luck!

  30. an HP Mini 110 would simplify my life in ways that I can not even spell, lol

    good luck to you and me ;)

  31. Man my life could use some simplifying! I would love to be able to write my blog posts on the go or during lunch breaks. Now if the HP Mini 110 could help me get my daughter to sleep through the night, I would be in LOVE (even more!)

  32. This would be great! I'd love to be able to work on the go, like while I'm waiting for the kids to finish piano or dance lessons.

  33. I would love to win this. It simplify my life so much being the mom of 2 under 2 with lots of goals and dreams! Good luck!

  34. would love to win good luck to you too

  35. I would love a new HP mini!

    Good Luck!

  36. I am in the process of trying to start my own business and I currently work from home...but I rarely stay in one place with my laptop. As I suffer from degenerative disc disease in my cervical spine - coupled with a heavy laptop - changing my "workspace" throughout the day is NOT an easy task.

    The HP Mini would simplify my life by allowing me to move my computer from place to place on my more bothering the rest of the family! This netbook would be a true lifesaver!

    Thanks so much!
