The Third Day of Christmas

On the Third Day of Christmas, Denise gave to me:


Two books and some Dove chocolate!

The Friday Night Knitting Club in paperback; it's just released sequel-- Knit Two, in hardback; and 2 Dove Chocolate bars, one dark chocolate and one milk chocolate. The chocolate is for when you're lounging around reading you can be completely decadent. I always wanted to be decadent so you can tell me what it's like.

I loved The Friday Night Knitting Club, and as anxious as I am to read the unexpected sequel (to me anyway) I have left it pristine for it's new owner!

You probably know the drill by now but if you don't, to enter you:

-- Leave a comment and get one entry
-- Drink my Koolaid Be a Follower and get another entry-- just let me know in your comment that you've been drinking.

The giveaway is open to comments from Tuesday 12:01 a.m until 9:00 p.m CST. Good luck!

This day is now closed.

Vic said...

I drink Koolaid lots of it! Well, actually my mom never let me as a kid and my tastebuds never developed a love for koolaid. But just go with it! Love your blog!

Vic said...

That post was to say- I am a follower. Incase my corny sense of humor didn't imply that.

Janelle said...

No fair - you guys don't have school today! Why do we have to go??? Oh well...maybe winning this will help me deal with the inhumanity of it all..... *sigh*

Thanks for the chance to win! :-)

Janelle said...

Hiccup! Oh, um, yeah, I've been drinking - and at this early hour, too! See the things I have to do to deal with the great school closing discrepancy of 12/16/08?

Denise said...

I'm so happy everyone seems to be having fun letting me know their drink of choice! I could really go for a Starbucks nonfat, no whip Mocha but its a SNOW DAY here today, so I think I'll be drinking my homemade mochas.

Warm up the espresso maker!

Denise said...

Janelle, its too cold to go outside today and the snow is so light and powdery they couldn't make a snowman or snowballs anyway. The main thing I get out of snow days is a a chance to sleep in but I got up EARLIER because of the phone call!!!

Cathy said...

Love to read....don't know how to knit....LOVE CHOCOLATE!

Cathy said...

As always, I follow you!

wendy said...

I have been lurking for a long time, love your writing style and your wit and your family antics.

wendy said...

I drank the koolaid!

Denise said...

Wendy, glad to drag you out into the daylight-- especially if you're going to shower me with compliments!

The great thing about my kids is that there's always something around the corner to write about!

Anita said...

Denise..........I love books, nearly all books, and well teamed with chocolate........what could be better!

Anita said...

BTW, my drink of choice is coffee.....most any kind, but never black...blech!
I only found you yesterday and I'm a rabid, er avid follower...ha ha. I over use exclaimation points too!

Brandy said...

Remember you can "pre-read" my book. If I win.

Brandy said...

Mmmmmm is this cherry or grape koolaid...it's hard to tell with all this sugar. But I like the sweetness!

Denise said...

If at first you don't succeed...here I am trying again~

Crystal said...

Im tired after seeing Twilight last night!!!!! And then when I got home I stayed up late reading Eclipse. There is no need to tell me I'm obsessed, I already know....LOL!

Crystal said...

Didn't see the part about drinking followers because I'm so tired from this obsession you passed on! I am drinking Crystal Light Cherry Pomegranate water.

Kristin said...

I wanna win. Please.

Kristin said...

Oh and I am so drinking.

Lori said...

I would like to win :)

Lori said...

I am a follower and right now drinking Coca Cola but should've put a little rum in it :)

Kat said...

Chocolate and books - ok I'm definitely in.

And looks like my daughter Jenn and I could "share" both - even being dyslexic she is a great reader when she stays focused. So anything that we can both read and share is great. And who doesn't like chocolate??

I'm a follower and listing this on my blog - eventhough that "decreases" my odds (hehehe)

Kim said...

Okay, so maybe I'm not so lucky. However, I'm feeling today is the day for me. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Cheers, always enjoy drinking with ya!

Carey said...

I'm in. Though I have to say your koolaid tastes a little weird. Did you add something to it? (Sorry that was a bit morbid.)
Anyway, I'll make you a little deal but let's keep it just between us. If you pick me (oh please pick me) you can send me the first book but keep the second to read yourself. Then just send the sequel when you're finished. I promise not to mention this deal to any other commenters...it's on the down low.

Sarah said...

I love Koolaid. ;)

Thanks for all the fabulous giveaways!

B said...

I'm a drinker, but can it be grape?

Denise said...

B, it can be any flavor you like. I have a whole buffet table full of drinks:

Let me take your order, please!

ElleBee said...

I love how you're getting your whole fam involved in these giveaways! I also drink your kool-aid! ;)

Candace said...

Love your blog and I love to read....and who doesn't love chocolate?

Oh....and I am a follower too. :)

Kristin said...

So you have a snow day while I am at school up to my eyeballs in paint? Hmm. Wonder which is worse??

Been drinking for a while!

Cindy said...

Drinking coffee this morning, and wondering what to buy my Aunt for Christmas...I think the second book! Thanks! I never read the first but heard it is good. We love books so I'm a follower!

Joan said...

And I am drinking coffee right now. They don't give us koolaid at work, hard to get the stain out of the desk top. :-)

Joan.

Denise said...

Joan, you bring up an EXCELLENT point! My kids are really lovin' Kool-aAid right now although I hardly make it. For one thing its chock full of sugar (like I need more hyperactivity in this house, I'm hyper enough) and second it STAINS!

So last night my kids were begging for me to make them some Kool-Aid and I kept putting it off thinking they would give up and forget. All the while I was thinking "What IDIOT decided to put all that Red Dye #40 in Kool-Aid?" It was obviously some man who never does laundry, nor cleans up after kids.

I better be careful. Kool-Aid might start stalking me next. Santa's already joined the Stalk Denise crew.
