Once in awhile, I have to have a treat. And, as most of us know, this isn't exactly the economic climate that lends itself to buying a new bag or a new dress, or taking a weekend trip somewhere. But, I can generally scrape together enough change to have a coffee at the local Starbucks once a week or so (usually on Fridays, as a reward for surviving another week!). And it really does feel indulgent and special.So, in honor of the shortest, coldest (at least in my mind!) month, and so that one of you can have a bit of something special and indulgent, I am going to give away a $25 Starbucks gift card. I know, I know - it's a bit of a cop-out not to make something, but my schedule's kind of tight these days!
I'll also throw in a few more goodies that strike my fancy - they won't be handmade, though. I'm talking about goodies of the chocolate variety! But those will be a surprise for the winner!
To enter, comment on this post by 8 p.m. EST, Feb 10th, telling me how you treat yourself when you need a reward. And if you don't ever reward yourself, you can say that, but I highly encourage you to start giving yourself treats if you don't already do so!
To get an extra entry, pop over to Melissa's blog and tell her you miss her! You can leave the comment on the most recent post. She'll be back blogging soon - they're just on crunch time with building the house. She needs your good thoughts and prayers as they try to finish!
Finally, if you post on your blog linking to this post, you'll get three extra entries. I'll draw the winner at 8:30 p.m. EST Feb 10th, and put the package in the mail on Feb 11th, and it might get to you in time for Valentine's Day! We'll hope, anyway!
Good luck to all!
