Our "Coffee, Coffee, Coffee" Giveaway Has A Winner: A TEA Drinker!! :)

Here I am at my local Starbucks today with one of their fabulous barristas who agreed to be my impartial name-picker. I brought in one of trademark Starbucks baseball caps (yes...I have one. Don't ask.) filled with the names of all those who left comments to enter....


She reaches in and she PICKS ONE!


The winner was (DRUMROLL......) Janet from "Its An Evolution" blog!!
I thought it was so funny because sweet Janet is actually more of a tea-drinker. BUT! She drinks the Tazo Tea "Awake" tea (LOTS OF CAFFINE) and loves green tea lattes from Starbucks, so she's an official "club member" in my book! :)
Janet, I'll get with you via email so I can get all your "details" (address, etc.) and get your gift off to you! CONGRATS, girlie!
For the rest, thanks SO much for all your comments! I now have several new brands of coffee I'm planning on trying -- a lot of you seem to favor Peets, so that might be my first one to try. Fun!
Have a sweet weekend and be sure to DRINK PLENTY OF COFFEE!
I'll raise a cup and think of all of you!

Congrats Janet!
This contest had me checking back so often to see if a winner had been picked. Such a simple thing, but SO fun.
Thanks Ruth, and don't forget to put Caribou on your list. I'm going to try Peets as well.
I'm off to class now, with COFFEE in hand!

Hi Ruth,
I know it's been a couple of days since this post but wanted to share this with you and any others if interested.
I thought with all the talk about coffee that you might get a laugh.

This is what I found this greeting me on the morning of March 19th at the bottom of my coffee cup!

Take care,

.....I wonder...if I hadn't washed the cup could I have sold it on Ebay? ;-)

Rebecca! That's amazing!!! You were SO smart to snap a pic of THAT!! Wow!

I'm with you -- the whole ebay thing might have netted you a chunk of change, girl! Any chance you can reproduce that? :)

Thanks for sharing that -- really something!

Ruth
