{Holy Giveaway Batman!}

Monday, August 23, 2010

In honor of the blog's 4 month birthday the Twinner has decided to give away TWO POUNDS of her very own roasted coffee. TWO POUNDS! Did you know she has been a roaster for almost 6 years? She's kind of my hero. She even has coffee bean burns on her feet, which is I guess what happens when you refuse to roast in anything but your Rainbows.


This weekend Twinner came up with two special blends for you.


Today's Letters Woobie Cape & Smartwool Blend + Today's Letters Fist Pump & Leg Shimmy Blend.


To enter, just leave a comment below by Sunday, August 26th and we'll announce the winner next week!

Ps, Hope your weekend was lovely. We took 3 naps, ate 4 Popsicles, and watched 2 movies. We. Are. Happy. Campers.

And a leg shimmy for first comment!!

Jennifer said...

Being a coffee roaster does make your twinner cool. We drink lots of coffee in our house. I am so looking forward to Autumn, when we need it to stay warm. If I won, there would definitely be some fist pumps and leg shimmies.

I lived in East Africa and worked for a woman who grew and roasted her own coffee. Let me just say that after my two-year stint there, I was spoiled rotten.

That was two-and-a-half years ago. I hope I win!

stacy kearney said...

Ashley Danae said...

Seeing all these posts makes me so happy for todaysletters! What doesn't twinner do? Thankful for your letters. They make me want to be a better wife!

Don Dinnerville said...

Woo hoo! That's not so much about the coffee as the naps, popsicles, and movies. Sounds like a freakin' awesome weekend to me. I'd be jealous, but I had Gloria's for dinner on Thursday night and Macaroni Grill for dinner on Saturday night, so I wasn't exactly slacking in the "having a fun weekend" department.

paige said...

Congrats on the 4 months! This is one of my favorite blogs...inspirational, fun and great music.

P.S. I.Love.Coffee

paula renee said...

Oh! Did you say coffee! I can't decide which blend name I think is awesomer. That's a word, right? Save a popcicle for me!

annie h. said...

MeganIrene said...

Huzzah for Todays Letters and 90 degree weather in California while being cooped up in the office!

A Haiku for you:

For a day filled with
Sprinkles and rainbows just start
with fresh ground coffee!

Katie M. said...

So I have to tell you something exciting....

da Hubs and I have recently moved, and with moving comes a lot of change right? Well, it's especially important during a time such as this, to appreciate the small things. Did I mention that w/ our move, we've gained a much more spacious kitchen? Well, the exciting thing is...

Last night da Hubs and I cooked together in our bigger cocina for the first time and whaddya know...a spontaneous leg kick and fist pump over took us...we were that excited.

I thought of Today's Letters and smiled, glad that leg kicks and fist pumps have crept into our happiness :)

Shimmies, leg kicks and fist pumps oh my! Coffee is best while enjoyed in those comfy smartwools. What a great give-a-way! Thanks for Today's Letters and always bringing a smile to so many reader's faces. You share happiness on a daily basis--thank you!

Kristen said...

So I think I deserve some coffee because I'm gonna be helpin my friend Molly lots---as she is a first time mommy to "twinners"- Noah and Addison :)

well, since you asked... said...

I am getting married in three weeks, what a lovely wedding gift this would make! woo hoo!

Rachel said...

My husband and I are in love with Today's Letters. Thank you for being an inspiration and teaching us how to live and learn in an intentional marriage!

P.S. We love coffee too... :)

Heidi said...

If we ever met in real life I believe we would become best friends. Is that a little creepy?

Ornery's Wife said...

The only thing better would be if they also came with SmartWools! Oh, I love those socks!

Jen said...

My husband is a big coffee drinker - I would love to be able to surprise him with a special treat! :)

Kara said...

Coffee is my reward for getting up in the morning.
Today's Letters is my reward for making it to my recess break. (I love my Kindies, but you need a breather, ya know?)

Diane Schiefferly said...

My husband and I celebrated 12 years of wedded bliss yesterday- and I am inspired by the work that you and Mr. do to make your marriage great. It's easy to see the things we don't like in our life partners- the harder part is to acknowledge those things that we love. Why is that? Thanks for sharing your lives with us- and making my marriage better!

I read today's letters every morning in my classroom with coffee from my new french press (I am slightly obsessed...with both, hah). It makes me smile. Yay 4 months!! Also - one of my dreams is to learn how to roast coffee, but I am not sure I have that kind of attention to flavor...
Best, from sunny California.

Wanna know why you should pick me? I work in a leasing office @ an apartment community and @ least once a month one of our residents gets fresh roasted coffee sent to her from her brother...she made me a cup when I shared homemade cupcakes with her...Otherwise the smell from the package closet is pure heaven and pure torture!
