It’s Another Giveaway!

Guess what?!?!?!?!

What is so exciting, you say?

Spring is finally coming! My Daddy is home for the weekend!! I’m off work today and not running around like a frazzled chicken with no head! I get to go to Jitters later today! Jericho came into the library! I have tons of awesome friends!!

Nope. None of these things are the main thing I’m excited about. (Though I am excited about those things too)

Yesterday was my 1 year blog anniversary!! šŸ˜€ Unfortunately I wasn’t really on top of things, and didn’t come up with anything to do yesterday. So!! How about a day-after-the-one-year-anniversary giveaway?! I also missed Random Acts of Kindness week a couple weeks ago… So since I love giveaways, gifts, surprises, coffee shops, and random acts of kindness – here’s the deal:

To win a $10 gift card to the coffee shop of your choice (either Starbucks, Tim Horton’s, Jitters, Java Jo’s, or Sips [if you are from around here and decide to go local]), leave me a comment telling me something kind/nice/thoughtful that someone did for you recently. Here’s the second part of it: in your comment, also tell me who you would randomly give a coffee gift card to. So I’m giving away two $10 coffee gift cards – if you win, you get to keep one and you get to give the other one to someone else. (Preferably the person you mentioned in your comment)

Only one entry per person, please. Winner will be chosen Monday, March 7th via random.org

Giveaway closed as of noon today.

  3. Yay! A giveaway! Here’s my “kindness” comment: My Dad came home from a conference with a whole bag of books. One of them being a KJV Bible 1611 edition. (Yeah, I said 1611.) The print is so pretty and old fashioned. AND… my Dad gave it to me!! šŸ™‚

    If I win the cards (Starbucks), I would give one to my friend Sarah because she is currently at Bible school and is probably getting to Starbucks frequently. She could use a free drink or two. šŸ˜‰ Oh, and did I mention how sweet she is?! šŸ™‚

  4. Something nice someone did for me would’ve been last night at Jitters. There was a group of us and we thought they were open until 10 but it was acutally 9. and it was about 9:15 when we got there and they were closed. so while we were sitting there deciding what we wanted to do the two ladies working came out and saw us. The one asked me if we were going to come to Jitters? I said we were going to but that’s ok. But they insisted that we come in. and they reopened for us. I couldn’t believe that they wanted to do that for us. i mean they had everything cleaned up and they were ready to go home. i felt really bad for them but they were just so glad that we were there. and we had a really good evening there. =)
    so if i would win i would def want a Jitters card. and i would give the second card to my sister. =)

  10. Just recently my daughter gave me a thirty dollar gift card to the grocery store where I shop. I thought that was pretty sweet. As to who I’d give the other card to…that’s a hard one, but I’d probably give it to my hubby, and then we could go out for coffee together!

  11. Random acts of kindness aye? Last week I had EVERYTHING dumped on my head. Leo came up and gave SO much! And then I got a box from Jeremy and Michelle….an amazing box of things I can use and a generous donation. One of those times you sit on your bed and cry…blessings pouring down on your head…moments. and…if I got a 10 dollar card to give away…yeah…I’d give it to you, Kristen, because I know you’d use it wisely and someone would probably be blessed with a good coffee shop chat with you. Have a good day dear.

  13. My day seemed discouraging and I prayed to God and asked Him to show Himself to me in a real way and later a friend texted me and asked if there was anything that I needed prayer for. How amazing is that! And if I won the card (Java Jo’s or Jitters) I’d give the other card to my daughters so we can spend some quality time together.

  15. How fun is this?!?!
    You are giving us a chance to receive AND give, all in one give-a-way! What a neat idea!

    I am so excited because I am the recipient of an act of kindness late this evening.

    When I came home tonight after being gone all day, there was a box on the counter from my friend in Florida.

    Inside was a Tervis Tumbler that I have been “dying” to have!!!
    I can use it for my hot coffee while the weather is still cool and then for my iced coffee when summer time comes!
    It was an unexpected suprise!!

    If I would happen to be randomly chosen to win Starbucks gift cards,
    I would most certainly send one to my buddy Robin because she made my day today! šŸ™‚

    Thanks Kristen!!!
    I love your little blog! šŸ™‚

  21. My husband made breakfast for me this morning. He is indeed my hero and my best friend and I am hugely thankful for him. He also took the baby for a while this morning so I could sleep in after a night of not very much sleep. I would probably give the other card to him because he is a Huge coffee fan, or my friend Eileen who has and continues to be a great blessing to me, and whom I love dearly as well.

  23. my son’s girlfriend’s mother — follow that? — invited me to a Bible study — which I LOVE, but I was unable to attend. What did she do? Showed up the next day with the study book and is bringing the DVDs to me so I can even watch the taped sessions! That was a totally random huge kindness! I would give her the extra card so we could go have coffee together. (What a sweet idea Kristin! You take after your creative mother. Love you both!)
