My First Ever GIVEAWAY...

Welcome to my first ever GIVEAWAY! And my 165th post. Not that the number has to do with anything but I just wanted to point it out.

Now back to my regularly scheduled post...

I gave this a lot of thought and came up with items that I would like to win, which of course means I'd like to keep it all. But it's about sharing some Holiday Spirit with ya'll so I will suffer for your happiness. By suffering I mean that I bought an extra for myself.

Here's what you can win:


It just wouldn't be a giveaway from me without some Holiday socks!


Cookie cutters to make the mess with, a towel to clean it up and little bags to share your goodies!


Since I wouldn't expect you to share ugly cookies I've included some sprinkles and decorating gels.


And finally...what was this?












I got a lot of creative answers from my teaser yesterday, but Bejewell finally got it right. It is a Starbucks gift card holder. Ain't it cute???

Oh and it contains a $10 Starbucks gift card.



Let's recap. You get a "stuffed" stocking with a pair of Christmas socks, cookie cutters, a holiday towel, goodies bags for sharing, decorating gels, sprinkles and a $10 Starbucks gift card all snuggled up in it's very own super cute fuzzy holder.



To enter:

1. Leave me a comment telling me your favorite Christmas cookie. OR if you're not much of a baker let me know what's your favorite Starbucks beverage. For this simple task you will get ONE ENTRY.

2 I'm at a measly 6 followers...it's starting to affect my self esteem so I need your help. For a SECOND ENTRY - follow me OR subscribe to my blog. And then leave another comment letting me know you did.

3. Post a blog about my first ever GIVEAWAY and earn a THIRD ENTRY when you come back and tell me about it.

*And I'm giving an extra entry to ALL the ladies who guessed yesterday because I'm in the giving mood.*

The GIVEAWAY will end next Wednesday at 12:01 AM (12/17) and the winner will be announced on Wednesday morning. I get paid on Wednesday's and I think you should too!

Now go forth and spread the word!

OOOOh how fun. I love a giveaway! Ok, my favorite Christmas cookie is a Russian teacake cookie...you know, those little round ones covered in powdered sugar. Yummy.

lemonadesun said...

Ok. I just subscribed to you!

Janelle said...

I would LOVE to win this one!! Thanks for the chance! My favorite Christmas cookie is kind of unique one that I've made for many years. My mom and I always called them "kolaches," but in looking at other kolache recipes, it's not the same. I guess maybe it's more of a pecan crescent rolled cookie? I don't know, but they are GOOD! I hope to get the recipe posted on my blog this week!

lemonadesun said...

And this is my post in my blog about your giveaway:

kathemc said...

I'm glad lemonadesun knows them as Russian Teacakes -- they're my fave too and that's what we call them, but a lot of people only know them as Mexican Wedding Cake cookies! How they got from Russia to Mexico I'll never know!
kathemc(at)gmail(dot)com

Mrs. S said...

I don't know the name of my favorite Christmas cookie. I don't even know if it's a cookie really. It's kind of a gooey Oreo-type thing inside and it's enveloped in almond bark. I don't know, they are yummy. I already ate 2 today. :)

Mrs. S said...

I'm also a follower!

Denise said...

I. Want. That. Stocking. Give. It. To. Me. NOW!!!!

I am sheepishly hanging my head in absolute SHAME because I thought I blindly followed you already but I DIDN'T!!!! I am so sorry!!!!

So I get one entry for yesterday's non guess. Okay, let me just say this is a shame filled comment-- how could I, ME- the ultimate Starbucks follower, NOT know that was a Starbucks gift card?!?!? Are you in absolute shock? Could it be because I haven't been to Starbucks since last Wednesday? Yeah, you heard me right.

You know my address so you might as well send that stocking right on over...

Jayme said...

My favorite Christmas cookie would be a gingerbread man :) My favorite Starbucks drink would be a pumpkin spice latte.

My favorite Christmas cookie has to be the chocolate mint surprise cookies my grandma used to make. A chocolate mint wafer in the middle with a walnut on top. Yum! She also made a mean Russian tea cake and thumbprint cookie, but I'm a chocolate girl so I also went for the mint surprise cookies!

Malaika said...

My favorite Christmas cookie is one my mom makes, regular roll out cookies with frosting. It takes me back in time everytime I eat one.

And for Starbucks, I think I´ll come right out and say it, I´ve never, ever been to Starbucks. I´d like to win this stocking and change that.

Angie said...

Every year my kiddos request peanut butter blossoms and cut-out sugar cookies...so we spend a day baking and decorating away...of course it only takes a few hours to eat all of our hard work! Thank you for the chance to win this...the Christmas socks reminded me of my dear Aunt B...every year she would give everyone new Christmas socks....we would joke about it as kids and roll our eyes..but as we got older, we looked forward to those socks! I miss them (and her) now.

My favorite holiday cookie is gingerbread - nice and thick, and soft in the center. If there's no gingerbread, pecan sandies are okay by me! My favorite Starbucks drink is...the Gingerbread Latte. I salivate for the Christmas flavors to come out every year!

Judy said...

You have lots of comments so you are a "Hot Site" but you have to remember that some of us are slow. My favorite Christmas Cookie is not a cookie but "Fruitcake" and I love it!! I'd be interested if anyone else has this as their favorite. From Starbuck's the coffee is too strong for me but I love the Strawberry Thingy. Yum!! I will post a notice on my Blog so check it out!!

How neat! I had never been a fan of gingerbread. When I tried to make them before just opening the molasses made me hurl! This year the girls kept asking to make gingerbread men (and girls). So I found a package of Betty Crocker gingerbread cookie mix. Wow really good and none of the molasses smell!!

I think my favoritists Xmas cookie is not actually a cookie. It's a poundcake. A cinnamon poundcake to be exact. With lemon flavoring and sour cream. It's soooooooo fuckin good.

and just for good measure, my favorite starbucks drink is the Peppermint Mocha Twist. and I love their holiday cups. and the gift cards I bought came in little knitted mittens otherwise I totally would've guessed right.

My favorite cookie that I make is called Freshed Snow on Ploughed Ground. It is a chocolate cookie that cracks when baked and then is sprinkled with powdered sugar. Hence the name. Thanks for the super giveaway. I will bookmark your site. Interesting stuff!!!

Several years ago I was on a quest to find the perfect Gingerbread Cookie. Most I tried were...ummm...gross. After trying at least a half dozen recipes I found it:
