Apparently, I just won a vacation. Should I consider this?

Just got a call that I won a vacation package. I have 3 choices: Mexican cruise, Mexican vacation, or domestic vacation (San Francisco, Reno, Las Vegas). Apparently I filled out something at a home show (though I don't remember this... I did go to a home show last summer I think, and I do remember filling out at least one form to win something, so I guess it's possible). All we have to do is go to their office in Vancouver WA and listen to a 90-minute spiel and then we can "claim our prize" which we have up to a year to use. Could this be a scam? I don't see how, but it's weird enough for me to wonder.
Also: husband is not really into resort-style vacationing, AND we're expecting a baby in 4 months. Am I crazy for even considering this?
I told her I'd talk to my husband and she's supposed to call back in an hour to schedule our 90-minute spiel.
TL; DR: won a vacation I don't remember entering to win. husband doesn't like package vacations, baby on the way. Is this a scam? Is it worth pursuing? I have one hour to decide.
