Great Big Home and Garden Show Giveaway

One of the things that I love most about our fair city is the never-ending list of interesting events to attend. Next up...The Great Big Home & Garden Show at the IX Center February 2nd-10th.
This event is so much fun to just wander around and check out the innovative products, ideas for your home and garden, access to experts...and some fun food demos thrown in. I've attended some of the demos in the past, and we always walk away with some practical advice and recipes. This year will be no exception.

The Loretta Paganini School of Cooking will be offering some great demos on the Main Stage/Cooking Stage throughout the show. You can catch local chefs like Dante, and Matt Fish of Melt doing demos as well. But, my heart be still, you can also see chef hottie Chris Crary from Top Chef Season 9 on February 9th at 11:00AM. Swoon.
I know what day I'll be attending.

As you can see, this event is not just for those interested in home improvement or decorating your home and garden. There is a little something for everyone.

The Home & Garden Show did ask me to help them promote the event, but this one is something that I would have shared with you even on my own. However, they did offer to generously provide me with two tickets to give away to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment below telling me who your favorite Top Chef contestant is (current or former), or what project you are currently working on in your home.

I'll select a winner, using random.org, on January 29th. Good luck!

Disclosure: The Great Big Home & Garden Show provided me with two tickets to give away, and two tickets for myself and a guest to attend, in exchange for this post. The opinions stated are 100% my own, and I really can't wait to lay my eyes on Chris Crary. Images provided by The Great Big Home & Garden Show.

Unfortunately I don't have time to watch much tv, because my husband and I are attempting to finish our basement. Seems to be a never ending project! A trip to the show may be just what we need to get inspired and finish!

I'd love to go and drool over all the home stuff we can't afford. We aren't working on any project right now, but we plan to do some gutter work and gardening in the spring.

I don't have a favorite Top Chef. But my husband and I are in the process of working on our bedroom right now. So far, we've ripped out old carpet and painted. Next up, we're planning to diy a headboard and night stands.

My current project is trying to organize and declutter. I know it is not glamorous, but it is necessary.
