IT'S. MY. FIRST. GIVEAWAY. EVER. (!!!!!!!!)


i'm so excited i can barely freaking contain myself.  


for the past couple of weeks, i've been lying awake in bed wondering what i can do to show my readers how much i heart them and appreciate them and their comments.  and every morning, i've been eating breakfast on one of my new bar stools aimlessly thinking about giveaways.  i've been racking my brain for cool giveaways that would make you want to lift up your shirts like you were trying to catch mardi gras beads.  yesterday morning, i woke up and KNEW i had to do something soon because not having had a giveaway yet was killing me.  sure, i make some of you snicker or laugh, but sometimes you want something materialistic for your time.  i was even considering leaving work early yesterday to go get some goodies for a giveaway when an email from CSN stores came up in my inbox with an opportunity for them to sponsor a giveaway!!!  (thank you, CSN stores!)  i knew i must have done something right because the giveaway gods had heard my cries for help and emailed me!!

one lucky winner is going to be the proud owner of these two gorgeous wine glasses (i know how much you guys like to drink).  the irony in this giveaway is that the only thing i can drink out of them is water or orange juice, seeing as though drinking wine would kill me damn food allergies.  BUT i know plenty of you are wineys and would love to get your hands on a pair of these:





da rules and how you can enter: 

1. for one entry, you obvs have to be a follower.  and you have to live in the u.s. or canada.  (sorrs to my other worldly readers; i promise i'll do a giveaway open to everyone soon!)  AND you have to leave me a comment about why you think you should win.

2. for a second entry, blog about this giveaway.

3. for a third entry, add a link to this giveaway on your sidebar.

that's it!  super easy, huh?  
ends at noon (c.s.t.) on wednesday, february 10th!

Im a follower!!

Homesick Cajun said...

I think I should win because my in laws are leaving on Valentine's day after a 3 month visit with us. My hubby and I can use the glasses to celebrate with lol! I'm a follower also!

Stacy said...

That IS exciting! How'd you swing that!? I think I should win because when I moved into this apartment, I broke 2 of my wine glasses! Boooooo. It made me very sad. Also, I think I should win because I'm KICK ASS.

Bathwater said...

I think I should be given the wine glasses because I will not stoop to lifting my shirt for said trinkets (know that the owner of this blog would not lift her shirt either). Thus not only does my dignity remain intact but so does Meredith's curiosity concerning her only male reader (only one that counts).

She will probably continue to have these giveaways with increasingly glamorous prizes just to continue to try and get me to objectify myself for her enjoyment! I will not given in, so fellow readers of this blog.

But I will drink to the efforts of you others with my new wine glasses!

The Only Girl said...

Sweet giveaway, girl! Okay, clearly I'm a follower and I want to win these glasses because I really like free stuff. And wine.

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

I want presents.

That's how I did it on Jess's giveaway and I won. Maybe if I just get all cavegirl archaic I win?

Want me to tweet this? Don't answer that. I will despite your lame unattempts to get on the twit.

foxy said...

Okay, first of all, I'm already a follower and love you best - better than anyone else here. Promise.

Second, I should win because I love wine. Also more than anyone else here. Just ask my liver. Promise. (but it's red wine, so it's also good for me, right?)

And also? I've never won anything and this would light up my whole entire life. How good would you feel about doing that for me, huh? Lighting up my whole entire life? That's awesome. :)

Cee said...

Awesome giveway! tell the gods to visit me!

and I am a follower!

Stephanie Hartman said...

♥This is such a GREAT giveaway! I would love to win these glasses so my hubby and I don't have to drink our wine out of a coffee cup Pahahah sad I know..But hey you use what you got right lol..

♥I am a Follower..

♥StEpHaNiE H..

saltsays said...

Well you know that I'm a follower and I will make some linkages in my sidebar at some point before this thing is over.

And I deserve to win because I am awesome. But really because we need new wine glasses and no one has gotten them for us off our registry yet. Those are so beauteous!

Patience said...

Fabulous giveaway. I am a follower.

Vic said...

I'm a follower!
Aaaand...
I think I should win because no one can put back glass upon glass of wine like me. Have I mentioned I even have a wine blog (in addition to my regular blog)? Yeah, THAT JUST HAPPENED!
Maybe my bestie and I can do some more wine reviews soon with new sparkly glasses!

Meredith Travels said...

I'm already a follower, I don't have to win my love with a contest.

But the reason I should win these is because m dear sweet bf has been working 15 hour days for the last 2 weeks and I think he deserves 2 glasses of wine poured just for him! Oh, and maybe I'll have a sip or 2.

And I don't exactly know how to make a link in my sidebar.... I'll poke around and see what I can do.

Christin said...

You know I'm a follower :)
I would like to win because I've had a rough couple of weeks and sitting down to a nice glass of wine sounds delightful. :)

jayme said...

Hiiiii!!! I heart you & giveaways so this is fantastic!

I should win because
1. I've never won anything in my life.
2. You rock
3. I love wine. Seriously I do.

Graciassss!

And doyyyy- I follow you like a fat kid follows cake! (ummm...)

MCW said...

I would love to be entered. And I think I should win because my wine glasses are really, really UGLY!

"Julie" said...

i need to win because then you don't even have to spend money on postage to give them to me...notice how i said GIVE THEM TO ME. i will exchange the wine glasses for dog training lessons since i'm an animal whisperer and all. boo-yah.

carissajaded said...

Following!!!
And also I really need to win because I have broken all the wine glasses in my house and now have to drink out of plastic!!!

bananas. said...

Um you do realize that i'm the biggest wino ever so you can kindly end this giveaway and send those babies my way. Haha. I kid. But seriously, enter me now! Woohoo!

jessalyn said...

too bad i don't follow you.

i will not blog about this.

and i will not put this in my sidebar.

(i am going with the reverse psychology approach to be different- the wine glasses are totes going to want me now because i am playing hard to get...besides, i have already demonstrated how cool wino jess is. plus, i broke a wine glass a few nights ago. i need a replacement.)

♥Aubrey said...

Are you trying to make us drink?!!! LOl
You know i follow :)-

CHEERS to your first ever giveaway!!!

KLaw said...

Swwoooooon! I love love love them!

KLaw said...

I follow you too, of course.

AuntBT said...

Must win cause I drink wine like it's going out of style, cause I follow you, and you follow me. Cause we're just awesome, super cool people like that.

Cathy said...

I'm going to be the awesomest, most unselfish person ever and take myself out of the running. I don't drink much wine and I have a bazillion wine glasses already(that never get used). So, your followers can thank me for not taking away from their entries. See how nice I am?!!

Elizabeth Marie said...

I'll follow you anywhere. And there's usually a bottle of wine attached to my hand.

Karls said...

Waaaah! Why do I live at the bottom of the world?

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

I'm a follower already :)

Why do I need these glasses? Besides the obvious that I love wine. I also love style. And drinking in style is important. I currently own only a few wine glasses all of which have been given to me from various wine fests that I've gone to. (it's not cool to drink out of a "free glass" I want to seem sophisticated n' junk!

So there's my reason. :)

Keep up the great work girl - Excellent choice for a giveaway!

Connie K said...

New Follower !! Love the giveaway & and i have some wine that would look perfect in the glasses !

Heather said...

Yay! What a great giveaway!
I think I should win because I promise to love and use them tirelessly until they break or are stolen by someone because they're so so lovely and they just can't stand it! ;)

Heather said...

Blogged!

Kinsey Michaels said...

I'm a follower!!! And I think I should win because I own about 75 martini glasses, and 0 wine glasses. It's kind of sad :( And I'm trying to get into wine so it would be perfect!

xo

Ashley said...

I left you a little something on my blog ;)

Erin said...

What a cool idea for a giveaway---esp. since I love me some wine (to go with my WHINE)

SG said...

I'm a follower of course.

I think I should win and you can consider that an early wedding gift from you to me :)

Masala Chica said...

meredith! I can't have an excuse to drink more wine as I am already in too much trouble in that category but I am so glad you are doing cool stuff like this! Don't count this as an entry - just my standard hello to my bloggy friend :-) (besides, I want to increase Jess's odds of winning!)

jen said...

I deserve to win because I have really boring wine glasses, and these are amazingly beautiful. I would love showing them off at every opportunity!

Brunch at Saks said...

These are gorgeous! I honestly have no stemware at all (because I rarely drink) so it would be fun to have these- even if I do put iced tea or something else in them! Ha!

And I'm a follower :) xoxo

mommara said...

So pretty. I need these cause umm if a momma's gonna have a drink it better be in style. I need something glamorous. :) Love it!

Come check out my first giveaway too girly. It will post in just a bit!!!

Lovies.

hotpants™ said...

I don't drink wine, but I would definitely put some kind of alcoholic beverage in them. They sure are purty.

NOELLE said...

I was going to sign up but realized I don;t need 2 glasses! Is this Meredith from Tallowood in Houston? This is Rochelle Ferrada's sister. I think you know her! Great blog. Go visit my giveaway!

Liz C. said...

I think I should win because I never win anything (I'm sure everyone says that, but it's true!) AND Feb. 10th is my birthday!! What better way to celebrate than to be the winner of 2 sexy, little wine glasses?!

Allyson said...

OK...HELLO...I should get an extra entry because I've got "mimosas" in my blog name. OK yes, it's not actually wine...and is actually a form of champagne which requires a whole different kind of glass, but STILL. I'm obvs an alcoholic and NEED MORE WINE GLASSES! So, I'll whore myself out to get these. And whatever you do, resist Surferwife. She has ways of getting to a girl's soul. Do not look directly into her eyes. Especially if she's waiving a watch in front of you.

Congrats on popping your giveaway cherry. It feels SoOOO good (or so I've been told).

ScoMan said...

Damn you Canada! You've screwed me again!

Aunt Juicebox said...

I am already a follower and that's why I should win. No, actually I should win because when we moved my wine glasses got broken and I never replaced them. Now when I drink wine I drink it out of a Shrek glass, and my sister makes fun of me.

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Love these glasses! They look so chic :) I am a follower too!!

By the way, thanks for the comment on my blog! It's so nice to know you can throw your emotions in a post and get such amazing support :)

Llama said...

Im a very very happy follower who loves her some wine!

Laurnie said...

GASP! Those glasses are divine. I think I should win because Im a wine glass freak. Ive just decided I want to collect them.

And I will include the giveaway in my blog tomorrow! www.somewhinewithcheese.com

Kiera said...

I follow and i should win because even though they are free I will use them so often that the price per times used would be so insignificant it would be like it was free for the company to make them.

got that?

Jenni said...

Ashley said...

Oh hell yes.
I love wine. Wine is my best friend. And I have a serious addiction to bar glasses. I'm not kidding.
So, I am a follower. I live in the US. And I think I should win because I have a cute little toddler who runs around all day getting into every single thing. I'm always chasing after him. By the end of the day, to keep from going insane, Mommy needs a glass (or three) of wine.
And I'm about to blog about this!!!

Holly said...

im a brand new follower! love your blog (and wine)!!

valerie said...

Mauricio said...

hmmmm, well I don't own any wine glasses. It would be cool to get some as a gift. AND, I am one of your only followers that's a dude. Yea, I think you like 5 male followers, while the rest are females. So that should add some brownie points when choosing. ^_^

Michele P. said...

I am now following...those wine glasses definitely got my attention, lol. After work, I like to come home and relax... sometimes with an alcoholic beverage, sometimes not. Either way, these glasses would look lovely with wine, a mixed drink, or even a Shirley Temple :)

Heather said...

I'm a follower and loooove wine glasses! (and drinking)

Mauricio said...

i think i made a comment while not on my real account. think this should fix it.

Jules said...

Count me in for this and I am a new follower of your blog! I think I should win because I’ve been working insane hours lately and chardonnay is my favorite. It would be nice to have new glasses to enjoy it in.

Jules said...

I have also posted this giveaway on the sidebar of my blog under the giveaways section (www.chicnpink.blogspot.com).

Oliviology said...

I should win because I love to look classy while drinking my Martinelli's. Plus, those are abnormally tall and diggable.

Marian said...

Mere....I'm a follower (duh)...and I think I should win because I have two hands which just happen to go perfectly with those two glasses!! Match made in heaven:)

Or you know, I could use them as the toasting glasses for our wedding..unless we decide to do "Red-headed sluts" or "Sex on the beach" shots...ya know, we're classy like that

Annie said...

what a fabulous giveaway little lady!!
pretty please count me in, i'm a follower :)

Bitch, Bitch, Bitch (Amanda Mac) said...

Hmmmmm I thought I had entered this? Maybe I just thought I did.


Well, obviously I'm a follower and I think I should win because I send you pictures of girls with sloth tattoos.

But it is also a great giveaway I have been planning to buy some "non rounded" wine glasses like that.

cambridgechic said...

hi! i'm a follower. and i should win becauuseee....

I recently broke THREE of my wine glasses (as in all in the same week!) and now only have 3 which limits the number of people I can serve wine too!

Heather said...

I am a new follower and I love wine too . . . I should win because I've entered so many contests and never won anything. Plus, I am planning a giveaway at some point in time, and hey, YOU may win it?

Seriously, those wine glasses are very beautiful. Great giveaway!
Namaste~Heather
