According to the official rules, the actual drawing should be around this Wednesday.

Here's the contact information from the rules...

Main Sponsor anticipates that the potential Grand Prize Winner will be contacted either by phone, e-mail, in writing, or in person via an "ambush style" visit by Main Sponsor representatives at the Grand Prize Winner’s home or other location between June 28 and July 19, 2014 (subject to change).

I hope they don't "Ambush" me if I win. I have a bad heart! I can just visualize the carving on my tombstone..."He sure was lucky that day!"

Guess I'd better clean up my apt! Ambushing me at work is impossible so they'd have to come here!

That smart home is so nice and me and my wife would love to move to Nashville, TN. I can see my kids growing up in a community like Green Hills.

Ashley King, CONGRATULATIONS! I loved seeing your mother's surprised expression. Priceless! What a blessing for you! Hope we get to hear you sing on the stage.

Here is an internet quote from an article which was accompanied by a pic of the lovely young lady from Chicago Heights who won, a quite delightful story...

"King currently lives with her parents and is preparing to attend graduate school at DePaul University to pursue a master’s degree in digital communication. Her father, Reverend Claude King, kept the secret from King and her mother Denise last week in order to surprise the new homeowner."

Dad did a great job! I'm seriously curious how families keep such a secret. My dad (if her were still with us) couldn't have kept the secret. Dad must've known Mom would have had trouble keeping the secret. She definitely DID NOT know. lol Mrs. King, as a mom, I know I would've been that overjoyed to hear the news for one of my daughters, too. What a blessing!

Thanks for sharing this Tango.

Ms. Liz, You might well have stated, "a clever home", instead. We get 'em, "ad" nauseum. ;>)

But that doesn't prevent a, "Welcome to the MB zany gang" to you. Have a good time here.
Music, Maestro, please. :>)

It will be announced on the special edithann in August, those of us who are privileged to frequent here get the preview in pictures. It is always fun watching the special because you get to see the reactions that lead up to that excited look we see in her mother here and the ambush itself. It is all part of the fun.

edith ann, If you go to the Smart Home blog (not MB), you can see the wonderful expressions! Their smiles just brought a smile to MY face. I think her mom's expression is the best. It's how a mother feels when their child is receiving a HUGE blessing! Recently, my daughter received some news that eased my heart and I just welled up with tears. I do so even now thinking about it. We always hope for the best for our children.

Hi Trish and edith ann, I too was taken by the winner's mother expression on her daughters win.I can not wait to see it on the actual special so we can get the effect of the before and after of that expression. I love to enjoy the happiness of others.

The next site of the dream home still has not been revealed. We usually learn that on the special. Hope to know the new smart home location soon as well.

Love to dream
