    I would love to win Keurig Special Edition Brewing System because I want to experience a good coffee moment. Keurig is a very popular in demand product which I am dreaming of. I just wish to have one in my kitchen, due to tight budget I have to prioritize my children’s needs. This would be a great gift for me. Goodluck all ❤️ReplyCancel

  • Sandra VanHoey

    This may be the wrong question for a keurig which I would love to have by the way. My daughter has one and it makes super coffee. The GC I would love to get my granddaughter a birthday presentReplyCancel

  • Lisa Brown

    It is easy to use and I am the only one who drinks coffee, so single serve brewers are best for this household. We could use the Verizon FiOS in this house; looks like good rates and a way to keep everyone entertained.ReplyCancel

  • We sign up for the summer reading program at our local library and take advantage of their educational activities through out the summer. Then, we buy memberships to the children’s museum and other kids’ places around town. My daughter is an only child so she gets bored at home all day. So we go to the park, on hikes, swimming, and I usually sign her up for some sort of class. I think we’re doing gymnastics this year!ReplyCancel
