Blog Celebration Giveaway!

balloons1

I’ve been looking for an excuse to host a give a way.  I thought oh I’ll do a giveaway when I reach 100 followers!  And then suddenly I had over a hundred.

Then I thought ‘why don’t I celebrate when I’ve written 100 posts?’  Typical of me, I didn’t pay attention and I went right on writing past 100.

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

So now, I’m thinking I’ve got to do a Give-A-Away this week because of the Ultimate Blog Party.   (You can read my Blog Party Introduction post here.) So I look at my post count this morning and I realize that THIS POST is my 150th Blog Post!

So now, I’ll just *have* to give something away.  But what?  What can I give away?  I know.. Coffee!   I’d serve coffee (or tea) if you were sitting here with me in my dinning room chatting so here’s your chance to win a $15 Starbucks Coffee Gift Card

To enter leave a comment.   I’ll use a random method (such as random.org) to choose a winner.  Winner will be announced April 9th!

Required for first entry:  Tell me what you would purchase with the card.

Would you like to enter more than once? 

  • Follow my blog!  Leave me a comment telling me that you are now following my blog. 
  • Already following my blog?  Leave another comment for a second following entry.
  • Are you visiting from the Ultimate Blog Party?  Leave me a comment with your Blog Party Post link for an additional entry!
  • Are you a TOS Crew member?  Put TOS Crew in the comment and get another entry!
  • For another chance to win post about this give away on your Facebook, Blog or Twitter and leave me a comment with the link if possible.

  6. If it was fall, I would be getting a tall or venti pumpkin spice latte. This time of year, it would have chocolate in it. What I would get exactly, I have no clue (though the chance to sneak away from the house with a book by my lonesome sounds amazing and I don't think I would care what I ordered)

  9. Hi, Tess! I love Starbucks! I'd purchase a caramel macchiato for myself (decaf, extra hot) and a peppermint mocha for my sweetie. A $15 card would even be enough to do that twice! That would be a treat!

  28. What would I get at Starbucks? Wel their new one is growing on me the Cocoa Cappuccino. And since my all time favorite (Dulce de Leche) isn't available anymore, and because we're not in fall or winter anymore (at least not by month) it would either be the new one or a Chai Tea Latte
