    Firstly, a warm Canadian hello.. Eh!.. Second, I am not sure if Canadians are even allowed to enter this .. But for my mother and daughter, (and if I could bring my son) I am going to try for them… I guess I could start with telling my story, which has its very sad, emotionally traumtic components… But that would only be going backwards, and I would never think sympathy is what they would want, they would want respect for making it through it… So with that said I would love to give the “night out” with my mom, daughter and son… To remember what is great and fun and wonderful in this life, to see that life is tough but we can still find greatness in all that life can bring that “sucks”… I would love to make this a night out to connect with being interdependent as a family, but celebrate the independence of each of our unique and special lives that we are blessed to be given, and to get through holding on to strings of wonder in what we will find to make the journey “awesome”… So, I know I asked for my mom my daughter and my son… And I would choose as my fourth person… Someone random.. From my community to come along with us, just to give the gift of extended appreciation to connect on a wider scale with someone I don’t know who could use the trip and experiance of the opportunity of life’s “awesomeness “… Thank you for considering my entry for an “Oscar night out”… Have a great day, good luck to everyone who enters… And congrats to the 4 who win… Ciao Tris

    I would love the opportunity to meet Kelly and Michael. I’v been watching Kelly from All my Children and my husband loves Michael. This would be a great way to celabrate our 10th year anniversary. Its been a hard ten years with the economy and have been able to have a date night like we use to. It’s a prefect trip when you don’t have to fly because we live in Los Angeles.

    We pray that we win!

I would love to come on your show but it has not happened going to the big holly for a lady that’s home all day with the ones that really need me would be better than hitting the mega million!!!!

Hay just think this is how I get to watch you shows some days so winning this trip would be great. Monique

    38-40 years ago 7 very young women who had been married for just a few years became friends. One had to be taught to drive and to talk more. Our mistake was in encouraging her, she talks a great deal now and will say just about anything.

    We’ve raised 10 children together. When they were young we met every Friday night gatherings at each others house, learned to make bread, sewing clothing, perming hair, and supporting each other with whatever was going on in each others life. For the last 10 years we have had sleepovers rotating houses and this included dinner, a gift giving with lots of wine, doing the Christmas season. It is about the sharing and trust me, all topics are covered. The great thing about having friends is that you go through the good times and the not so good together: 2 breast cancer survivors, a husband survivor of stomach cancer, 1 with MS, the lost of a husband, divorce, a separation, but none of this has taken the wind out of our sails.

    The one thing we have been trying to organize for the last 2 years is a trip away that is just about fun, fun, and more fun. We are ready to party really hard with you and Michael. PLEASE CHOOSE US.

    Hi Kelly and Michael, I have been a fan of yours forever and tape every episode. I am actually writing as i cannot get into the submission portion for the contest. I tragically lost my son Jan 6, 2012 via a car accident. He was only 17 years old, a senior and an awesome golfer – hit an 83 on the Bethpage black course at 15 years old. We just had his 1st anniversary in heaven and 70 people showed up at my house. It’s sad that you find out how great, kind and generous your children are once they are gone. I am actually asking to be the chosen 5 not for myself but for my close friends who helped and are still helping me get through this tradegy. The support, love and kindness that i received from my community, church, school and work was incredible. I would love to surprise them with a thank you by giving them this trip. I don’t even have to go – i can choose 5 friends to go. Thank you for putting a smile on face every time i watch you both – you are the best there is!!!! Daryl Hein
