The Trenches 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways - DAY 12 - FINAL DAY!

See here for list of winners.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love T.O.M. gave to me

12 drummers drumming cups of cappuccino!

I saved the most expensive best for last! Today's Day 12 Giveaway is a Bialetti Mukka Express cappuccino maker! It's the crazy and fun design shown in the picture known as the....wait for it....COW!

Since I'm totally NOT a coffee, cappuccino, espresso, or tea drinker (well, except for vanilla chai), I am happy to pass this along to one lucky winner!

(Oh, and lately I'm also slightly addicted to the Starbucks salted caramel hot chocolate. Have you tried it? To.Die.For.)

Since this one is a biggie, I'm changing the rules. Because it's my blog. And I can. Since my ultimate intention for this whole "12 Days Giveaway" was to show appreciation for my regular, loyal readers (and not to garner a buttload of random comments from random people - no offense), I'd like you to comment:

(1) if you've previously left comments on this blog before I started this whole giveaway thing;
(2) if I've ever left a comment on your blog before;
(3) if you're on my blogroll; OR
(4) if you have a great, active (meaning regularly updated) blog that you think I need to come visit!

Drawing for all 12 Giveaways will be held on December 13th(ish) and winners will be notified via e-mail (probably on Monday, December 15th).

You know I'm loyal! I've been reading FOREVER (well, months that have been out of lurkdom! :)
PS That salted carmel hot chocolate is FAB!

Susan said...

I have definitely left a comment or few before - thanks for opening this one up to more people!

I am a regular reader. This one is super cute!!

karen said...

My dedication to coffee is legendary (and may, one day, help the world - biofuel from used coffee grounds!) and my kitchen is tastefully accented with cows (our new cat is even cow-print-colored). A cappuccino maker would be a perfect fit here!

Sara said...

I agree that the Starbucks Caramel Hot Chocolate is awesome. My friend and I had it in Charleston, SC a few weeks ago. We were there celebrating my 30th birthday.

I've left comments on your blog in the past and enjoy reading about your adventures in motherhood. I was referred by my friend, Staci.

Natalie said...

I apply to several rules! I have commented before, I follow your blog & I think my own blog is pretty darn neat.

I have my own addiction to Starbucks as well. Gotta love those red cups!

Shasta said...

I would love to win this!! I LOVE cappuccino and it would save me money to make my own as opposed to buying it from Starbucks and Sheetz!! I've left comments on your blog before, you've left them on mine and you are on MY blogroll=)

Love your giveaways!

I started following your blog in September when I saw your post on 9/25linking to Petunia face (letter to lady with turquoise sandals) and Loralee's loony Tunes (trauma) posts. I know i have commented a number of times on your post but I am a daily reader.

I do have a blog I keep current. I am slower on it now than I was a few months ago but life has taken over and I post 2-3 times a week.

I would love to be entered for a chance to win this coffee maker. It looks so fun. Thank youfor the giveaways opportunity. I hope you feel better soon!

I'm pretty sure I'm all of the above, except maybe #4, great might be pushing it!

Unknown said...

Even though I'm not on your blogroll, that's ok....pout, I know you pop over and visit me every once in a while. :)

I could totally make my cappuccino AT WORK!! That would be soooo nice.

Paula Reece said...

Ooh, I'm the first one...Whoo-hoo! Do I get an extra entry for being your soul sistah in the Midwest? ;)

Um...salted caramal hot chocolate? Hellooo?! Why is this the first time I've heard of such lusciousness? They'd better have it here in Iowa or there's gonna be trouble.

I'd love to win your cappuccino maker. I promise I would love, honor, and cherish it. Till death do we part.

adymommy said...

Woo hoo I get to comment based on those rules!
Do we get extra entries if we qualify for more than one rule? :) is the coffee drinker in me.
I am crossing my fingers. Can't wait for Monady!!!

I've been reading and mostly lurking but I think I might have commented a ways back. You're in my bookmarks and my reader. And why yes, I do have a blog you should visit! I don't wear lampshades on my head but I think we'd get along fine just the same.

Mags said...

I enjoy reading your blog, and have left comments. I don't know if I have a great blog...but, I try to keep it active by posting 1,2,3 x a week. It's been fun following your 12 Day Holiday Giveaway.

Donna said...

I just found your blog. I have only had a blog for approx. 6 months, and I am still learning.

kywildcats_10 said...

I'm pretty sure I've left a comment on your blog before. Love your site.

Patois42 said...

Please, pick mooooooooi for this, yes?

Janet said...

12 days of giveaways?!!! You are in the spirit, friend.

Cutest cappucino maker ever, by the way.

Judy said...

Well, you're on my feedreader and have been for quite a while. You've commented on my blog before, but I have no idea if I'm blogroll-worthy. However, you SHOULD be reading me as I post daily, haha.

Merry Christmas, Sarah! This has been a great week (I've had you bookmarked on my feedreader all week with your giveaways, but I was using my husband's computer until today and couldn't comment until I got back to the "real" machine!).

Mrs. Fabulous said...

1. I have previously left comments...I LOVE the funny stories about your boys! I'm raising a baby boy so I have lots of fun to look forward to!
2. Yes, I believe you've left one comment on my blog (I'm new to blogworld, though)
3. Not on your blogroll, but you're on mine! Where's the recripricating love??? :>)
4. See #3. Maybe I'm not that interesting????

Thanks for the opportunity to win this FAB prize!!!

Major Bedhead said...

Man, I tried leaving a comment last night and got a weird message and now it's probably too late. *sigh*

Anyway. I think I've left comments here before. I've been reading you for quite a while and I am not the type to be quiet, so it seems highly likely.

I am not, however, on your blogroll.

Barb Matijevich said...

I'm a sporadic reader, meaning that I come by and read a bunch of posts at once and wish I were clever enough to add something to your comments. But I enjoy your blog and I always come back so that I can follow up.

(This is not an entry into your giveaway--I just wanted to add my voice to your readers!)

Daintry said...

Well I alas can't say I qualify for the first few, but I have a fun little blog (or two) that get updated regularly! One is all about Christmas activities to do leading up to Christmas, and if my friend reads your blog, it must be good reads!
