Anyone who knows me knows I love my Keurig, and I hate not being able to drink coffee at work. If I'm lucky enough to win this, it's going in my office, along with a case of Donut Shop coffee and these Hot Apple Cider K-Cups!
I love that this model allows you to brew 6, 8 or 10 ounces so I can vary the strength if I decide to bring other coffees to work. While this model doesn't have a reservior like my Keurig Elite model I have at home, it won't be a problem to add water each time. Plus the smaller size will work better in my office. Oh and in case you were wondering, I'd go with the red one :)
Note: The photo shows this is also available in green or yellow, but the giveaway does not mention either of these colors.
What goes great with coffee? Coffeemate of course! Luckily One 2 Try has that covered with their Coffeemate Coffeehouse at Home Gift Pack giveaway that ends today as well. One lucky reader will win a prize package that includes an iPod Stereo Dock, $10 iTunes GC, Coffeemate brand mug, a coffee scoop and coupons for FREE Coffeemate! This would be PERFECT for those mid-afternoon coffee breaks.... who needs Starbucks if you have all this? I actually use Coffeemate for more than just coffee - the original (plain) Coffeemate works great in mashed potatoes, tomato soup, oatmeal or anything you would use milk in. I made some instant chocolate pudding with the Italian Sweet Creme and it was FABULOUS!
The only thing I love more than coffee is cheese, so it's a good thing that Sammi's Blog of Life is hosting a Sargento string cheese giveaway! One lucky reader will win free product coupons from Sargento. Luckily cheese is one of the snacks I can still enjoy on my diet, and since cheese is an excellent source of protein (while being low in fat) it's my first choice for those mid-afternoon munchies. Sargento has taken string cheese to a new level, offering flavors other than the traditional mozzarella, and also offering reduced sodium and reduced fat varieties. I also like string cheese because it's already portioned - since I struggle with portion sizes, having these on hand means I can indulge my love of cheese, but feel confident that I know exactly how much I'm eating to meet my dietary plan.
Jennifer at Mom Spotted is giving away a $75 gift certificate for Plow and Hearth! I had heard about their company but never really looked at them before this giveaway - now there are several items on my wish list! I love this wreath, which I could hang in the kitchen after the holidays, since it reminds me of bay leaves... or use it as a centerpiece in the spring, with some cascading flowers like wisteria interwoven in it. The practical side of me loves this nylon wood carrier and this coal scuttle with fatwood for my fireplace (or even this two-tier log rack).
At the moment, I think I've settled on a pair of these Mission Solar Post Cap Lights (pictured) for my front porch. Not only are they beautiful and fit the style of my house, but they'll also offer lighting when we come home late at night, and forgotten to leave the front lights on.
Lots of great giveaways are ending today!
