Have I Got A Mug For You!

This idea was born on twitter so you know the story is good.
I think it may have started out as a bumper sticker idea that turned into the 'yeah you should make one of those' irresistible Fred Flinstone ideas that sounded really great at the time which probably was some ungodly hour. 


I made one for myself obviously forgetting the fact that my children can read so I don't use it often enough - there is your fair warning for timing on this as far as if you really want to win it.  If you have high school teens, you might be safe, if you have toddlers, you will be safe for awhile but the 5 - Jr. High range is not recommended unless you can erase their memory of it before going back to school to be absolutely sure they don't repeat it.


I can't really take credit for what I am about to unveil here today which I am passing on to you.  So if you are a coffee lover and would do anything for your coffee, (of course you do, you are here) this is for you:




I have said forget about the Klondike Bar, ask me what I would do for my favorite coffee...


Here's all you have to do to win your own one of a kind mug:


  • Mandatory: Leave a comment telling me: What would YOU DO for your favorite coffee or what was something crazy you have done??
  • Mandatory: Make sure you follow GFC - leave me a comment saying you do
  • Optional: Tweet: Tell @coffeeluvinmom what you would do for your favorite #coffee here: http://bit.ly/sZQiii to WIN a one of a kind mug! or something of the like...leave the link for your tweet here in the comments.
  • Optional: Leave one comment on another post or whatever else your heart desires to stalk me further.


Winner will be selected Friday December 2 at 12am CST in a random drawing, contacted by email and must respond within 12 hours with additional information.  Leave a separate comment for each entry, the more comments, the more entries.  Good luck!

OMG that mug is awesome!!! Since I quit smoking, I am not much of a coffee whore any more. I once had no coffee and no money so I went out to my car to scrape together pennies and nickels from under the seats to go get a cup from the 7-11!

My daughter is 16.. she would think this is hysterical.

I put in a follow request to GFC!! I am not sure if we are on the same page there...

Great post.

Love the mug and love your site....so am glad I found you! I'm a total coffee whore...I almost feel naughty saying it....I actually had a coffee incident yesterday morning...none in the kitchen and I didn't realize it or I wouldn't stopped to buy some the night before, but I made a mad dash to the gas station in the morning in my slippers, hair tucked under a hat and my pj's on....top hidden under a coat. I know that's not horrible, and I know others have made the same trip...but it felt kind of desperate. lol.

I follow via GFC and oh gosh, what would I do for coffee? I have gotten myself hopefully lost on long drives searching for a Starbucks!

Shanna Farmer said...

Coffee is my first love, my personal addiction, and my biggest vice. I drink so much coffee that instead of taking me off of it, my OB suggested I cut back to 1-2 cups per day. I have been known to drink a pot a day or more. I take my travel mug with me everywhere. Maybe it's that my step-father was a truck driver, maybe it's because his father sat me on a stool in the CB shop they owned and gave me mugs of half-coffee/half-milk, but I became a full-on addict at the age of 16.

Thanks Darlene, make sure I have a way to get a hold of you - email is preferable. Good luck!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

I'm so glad you found me too! We can share in our whoreyness and mad dashes for coffee!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Me too, you got a dollar?

CoffeeLovinMom said...

I wish I didn't have to drive so far for one too...

CoffeeLovinMom said...

We would need 2 pots going if we ever got together Shanna...and my grandpa did the same thing for me - I have a BIGass travel mug kindly called Bubba which almost fits a pot itself..thanks for entering, good luck!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

How could I forget my favorite post?

CoffeeLovinMom said...

I don't know if I would ever go that far...I have emergency instant for when I'm really in a pinch that I have never had to use. Thanks for entering Danielle!

Summer Page said...

Oh, I've absolutely stalked open houses, conferences I wasn't a part of, and any other place where complimentary coffee is served when I've either run out or been caught out and about with no money or coffee. I'm shameless.

Summer Page said...

Oh, and I'm following you via GFC also

CoffeeLovinMom said...

I think that's fantastic! You gotta do what you gotta do!

coffeeguru said...

While travelling my Dad tried to make my Mom and I drink gas station sludge for our first cup of the day we said no we want to go to our favourite coffee shop and my Dad said he would drive us. My Mom and I all bundled up in the middle of winter walked two blocks to get our first cup of the day.

Cheers,

-Brenden
