A special one year anniversary GIVEAWAY!!!

Photo from here.


Wooohoooo!!! I am officially celebrating my one year anniversary of being Diet Coke free!!!!!


Some of y'all may remember my post last year with a photo of my very last Diet Coke. Boy, it was HARD to share about giving it up. Once you put it on a blog, gosh, MAJOR accountability sets in, doesn't it? :) But here I am, one year later, and no Diet Coke has been consumed since then!!! PRAISE THE LORD!!! I know the Lord helped me stop drinking it- do you know that I did not have ONE craving for it? Not even a headache, either!!


Y'all know I have to celebrate with y'all, right? And since I can't very easily have all of you over for a big piece of cake (oooh, that WOULD be fun, wouldn't it??), I would LOVE to have a giveaway!!!!!


Okay, my first favorite drink in the world is water!! MMMM!!! And my second favorite drink in the world is tea (specially Adagio!!!)! So what better giveaway can I have than to somehow combine my two favorite drinks together, right????? So here we go..........






To celebrate my one year of being Diet Coke free, I (along with Adagio) want to giveaway the graviTEA Water Filtration with 6 filters.



Y'all be sure and check it out! Not only is this great for tea drinkers to have better tasting tea, it is perfect for ANYONE that drinks water and is concerned about filtering it!!


Here's the scoop...


1) You can enter ONCE by leaving a comment here on my blog.

2) You can enter TWO MORE TIMES by sharing about this giveaway on YOUR blog.


Oh, and y'all, you do not need to be in the continental US to win. I will make sure that this wonderful graviTEA Water Purifier finds you anywhere in the world. :)

The contest starts today and runs until Friday, March 27th, at 8:00 PM EST. I will announce the winner on Saturday, March 28th.

*** And don't forget--- sign up for a $5 gift certificate from Adagio Teas!!!! Check out my sidebar near the top!!!!!

I could never stand diet pop - it eats a hole in my stomach! I tried to like it during my teens, but gave up - thankfully. I'm glad you could break your habit - you must have a lot more change jingling around in your purse! We are big water lovers too - and we have nasty well water, so we resorted to an R.O. system to make it taste better - and to make our tea taste right! There is nothing like a good cup of tea!

Mrs. Pear said...

Good for you! It is so hard to give some things up, and to be able to say that a year later you still are is a HUGE blessing!

Natalie said...

Congrats on 1 year without diet coke. I quit drinking it about a year ago as well. Missed it at first, but not now. As a fellow tea and water drinker, I'd love to win this!

Linda from Georgia said...

Would love to win. Ever since they shut our water off for just a few minutes to do something on the line, it is cloudy. Real cloudy. I would love to make tea without buying water.

Melissa said...

What a great giveaway! You are going to have me buying those teas, yet! I blogged your giveaway! This post may even help others get over their "addictions." Maybe I should give up "pop"....maybe :P

anntje said...

YAY! Good job. I always thought diet sodas were really gross & am not a fan of soda in general so I have an easy time not drinking the stuff, but I do know that I can be really hard for some people! Oh and thank you for the giveaway, that filter sounds great!

anntje said...

Oooh, I also blogged about the contest here: http://stuffstuffstuffmorestuff.blogspot.com/2009/03/making-house-home-giveaway-327.html

I just recently cut it too but....then just this week we started adding a room on to our house and so we purchased pop for all the men who were helping biuld and low and behold I have been drinking like one a day!!!! I can't believe it! So I really need to get back to the water and tea. I think this product would really help(;
