New Feature & Birthday Month!


Happy September!!!

This is my most favorite month of the year! It's my birth month, fall begins, football starts up & pumpkin spice lattes are available at Starbucks. Yes, fall is my favorite season. I love cool weather, the changing of the leaves, the decor (pumpkins are so cute!), and the holidays. In honor of my birth month, I will be hosting my very first giveaways! Nothing special, just a couple of fun things that I've picked up since moving to Germany.

Since there are 30 days in September and three prizes, each giveaway will last for 10 days. The first giveaway starts today and runs until September 9th at midnight West Coast time. Here's how to enter:
1. Leave a comment for each entry
2. Follow my blog- 1 entry
3. Follow me on Twitter (@kmack143)- 1 entry
4. Tweet about this giveaway - 1 entry
5. Blog about this giveaway- 1 entry

And that's it. Four chances to win. Nothing too complicated. Be sure to leave one comment for each entry so I can plug it into the random number jig-a-ma-roo. If you tweet or blog about it, be sure to leave the link or your twitter name in the comment so I can check it out. Now onto the prize!...

This one is Kaffe (coffee) themed. Yum! I'm not sure how many of you out there are coffee fans. If you aren't then maybe you know someone who is that might like this. You'll get a coffee cup and saucer, espresso bon-bons, a wooden plate, and a coffee scented candle, all from Stuttgart, Germany; chocolate covered coffee beans from the Wawi chocolate factory in Pirmasens, Germany; and hot chocolate scented lotion and bath gel. It all looks and smells so delectable!

As for the new feature, Becca from The Finish Line left a comment suggesting that I start a Beer or Wine of the week. She's living vicariously since she pregnant. I thought this was a great idea! Thank you for the suggestion Becca and I will be starting this new weekly feature next week so stay tuned!

My birthday is in September too! Love Fall, and coffee!! What a great idea, thanks. And I look forward to the Beer/Wine of the week feature.

Ummmm...I'm in love with you!!! LOL! I just found you because you commented on The Annoyed Army Wife's blog about loving coffee. You just have no idea how much I love coffee, wine, beer, traveling. OMG I'm seriously going to be the president of your fan club!!! LOL!

And a coffee themed giveaway?!?!?!? I'm SO there!!!

PS. My favorite coffee is the Kenya blend from Starbucks. I've wanted to try Puerto Rican coffee but don't know where to get it.

Awesome!! I can't wait :) Thank you!
I recently started following this guy's blog from San Fran who brews his own beer and puts up these phenomenal recipes and pairings on his site, and I've learned so much for my future goal of becoming a female brewmaster!

September is my birth month, too... and my favorite month! I love all things fall!

Can't wait for the Beer/Wine of the week! I'm not too adventurous with my beer and wine. So, I'm excited to hear some opinions and try new things!
