2 Year Blogiversary - Doubly Good Week (Day 1)


Time certainly does fly when you're having fun!

Tomorrow marks my two year blogiversary. It seems like just yesterday I wrote my very first post.

I really had no idea how much I'd grow to love blogging, how much I'd grow to love reading blogs and how blessed I'd be by each and every one of you.

So... I decided this week I'd have a little fun, show a little bloggy love, and give away a few things that are part of my everyday world.

Here's the scoop:

1. Each day this week, Monday through Friday, I'll post a new giveaway.

2. I will pick two people to get each day's goodie, using a random number generator.

3. You can enter each day, and possibly win more than once.

4. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment. One comment per person per day please.

5. Tell your friends. Invite them over. The more the merrier.

6. I will pick all of the recipients for the entire week on Saturday morning, August 2, and post the names that day.

Without further delay, today's Doubly Good Give Away is two $10 Starbucks Gift Cards. (Two people will each get a $10 card.)

Personally I'd order a Venti Soy Sugar-free Hazelnut Latte with light foam.

Have any of you tried the new Vivannos?

What would you order?

Good luck!

And thanks for celebrating the week with me.


Momma Roar :

Paula (SweetPea) :

Does Starbuck's have caffiene free or does that miss the point?

I've come via Tonja's Gatherings.

I think I've had regular coffee from Starbucks once and had to dilute it with water.

I know that my dad loves Starbuck and he has a birthday next week so I'd still enjoy winning.
Thanks and happy blogging.

Happy Blog-versary!!! I am always looking for new Starbuck's drink suggestions! Seems everyone I know has their own favorite. I'm a simple girl and usually order a tall, non-fat, vanilla latte.

Happy 2nd Blogoversary!

Yes, I have tried the Starbucks Vivanno, the Orange Mango Banana blend. I have to be honest and say that it tasted very healthy (as in, it tasted like crushed vitamins). It wasn't that bad, but frankly I rather have an orange mocha.

Nadine :

Happy Blogiversary.

I always get a venti skinny vanilla latte.

Preppy Mama :

Congrats on 2 years! You are a very generous blogger. I am addicted to Starbucks like most people. My staple is a venti iced vanilla skim latte!
Thanks for giving us all a chance to win.

Happy Blog Anniversary!I have been enjoying your blog, its been bookmarked in my favorites for a while. I am a nonfat, decaf, vanilla latte gal. Wish I could have one everyday!

Mom on the Run :

Happy Two Years! I haven't been reading your blog for very long (for some reason our old browser would only show the border), but I think we have that Midwesterner in the South thing in common, dontcha know.

I always get a mocha or Zen iced tea at Starbucks.

Cara :

Such a fun way to celebrate! My Starbucks fix is always a vanilla latte with non-fat milk!

Mandy :

Happy Blogiversary. I would love to win a Starbuck's gift card. Thanks.

Jill Happy Blogiversary! Wow 2 years, that makes you famous! lol

Iced caramel macchiato....if I wasn't pregnant and off caffeine.

Kari :

Happy blogiversary! It's been great "meeting" you through blogging and I always look forward to checking in on your posts. Thanks for offering such a fun giveaway. I love Starbucks, especially when the weather starts getting cooler in the autumn. My standing drink order is a tall caramel apple cider, extra hot. Yum! Thanks.

justabeachkat :

Did you mention Starbucks? Now you're talkin'. Enter me.

What fun!


ikkinlala :

I don't go to Starbucks very often, so I don't know what they have for fancier drinks. I'd probably order either a latte or a hot chocolate and whatever looked the best from the baked goods case.

Christina :

How about an Iced DT NF SF Van Latte OR a Lite Carm. Frap??? YUM!

Rejoyce :

The one & only thing that I ever get at starbuck is a Carmel Frap & rice krispie treat. Yummy!
