Simply a Giveaway!

In the spirit of the season, as well as recently reaching 100 Google followers, I've decided to host my very first giveaway!  I wanted to take the time out to thank every one of those that frequent my little blog here...it truly means a lot to me.  This blog is a little window into my life here in the Pacific Northwest and honestly, it's probably one of the best things I've decided to do.  I never thought I'd keep it up for this long.  But needless to say, it's been a great journey, and I'm looking forward to many more to come. 

So...here's the details of the giveaway:

1.  You have the choice of picking TWO of the Anthropologie alphabet monogram mugs in any letter you want.  You do not have to leave them in the comments.  Once the giveaway is over, I will contact you directly on which one you'd like.

2. For one submission, you can be a follower, but you do not need to follow to participate in this blog.  Just leave me your email address in the comments.

3. For an additional submission, in the comments section, tell me whether you're participating in Black Friday this year and what you're looking to score.

4. For a final submission, blog about this giveaway on your blog and let me know in the comments once you've done so. 

I will be taking entries from now till December 3rd.  I will also be contacting the winner to see whether they drink coffee or tea...or other hot beverages for an additional surprise I'd like to include in the mailing.  :)

It's Monday and outside looks like this:


I'm SO ready for the holidays!  Have a great Monday, everyone!

  2. Hi Cindi! I wasn't sure if I should leave two separate comments for following and the black Friday question.
    I will be up bright and early Friday morning. I'm planning to hit Target, Kohls, and Walmart. I'm trying to score good buys on toys and such for the kiddies.

  3. hi cindi! thanks for hosting this amazing giveaway. I have been eyeing those mugs for awhile now and think they would be perfect size for a nice cup of hot chocolate during the winter! I am a follower!

  4. I will actually not be participating in Black Friday this year after a particularly traumatic experience a few years ago. I wish everyone the best of luck in finding their treasures!

  5. I'm a follower (of course).

    And I won't be getting up super early for Black Friday sales, but I usually end up at the mall at some point during the day. That'll also probably be the day that I go see Harry Potter with the fam.

    Great giveaway idea BTW!

  6. I subscribe on Google Reader and for Black Friday/Cyber Monday, my boyfriend and I are stalking places for our new camera! It's either going to be the Canon 5D, 60D, or T2i (: Thanks for the giveaway opportunity, the mugs are absolutely gorgeous, and congratulations on 100+ followers!!

  12. What a great giveaway!

    I'm not planning on participating in Black Friday. Usually I spend that day doing other things with family. If Anthro created some amazing offer though, you'd bet I'd be there! :)

  24. As for Black Friday - not looking for any particular big scores, but I am on the hunt for a gorgeous and extremely comfy pair of black ballet flats! And I'll plan on virtually perusing the wares of my usual fave shops (Anthro, JCrew, etc.) to see if there are any particular good deals to be had!

  25. Thanks for the giveaway Cindi!

    I will NOT be participating in Black Friday this year. I am always sorely disappointed and crowds stress me out....I'd actually rather pay MORE money to 1)Get a pristine product 2)Shop from the comfort of my own home :-)

  45. Also, Black Friday isn't really a thing up in Canada, considering we've got a different Thanksgiving. But I AM playing a little bit of chicken with the holiday sales, hoping to score some sweet sneakers or some kind of obscure designer awesome for my bandmate, and a pair of "bar appropriate" black shoes for my kid sister. :D
