The Big Birthday Giveaway

Nespresso Pixie
Aw man, this is the giveaway I've been waiting for! At the end of April, I had the fortune to be invited to a nice party thrown by Nespresso, the makers of really expensive coffee and machines. As a gift, they sent me one of their new Pixie machines which retails at $249. I held onto it because I knew the perfect way to start celebrating my upcoming birthday-by giving it away to a lucky reader! (cue balloons and confetti)

The event was pretty good; we got to have espresso inspired drinks and food. Ted Allen (from Queer Eye and Chopped) was there, as was Pixie Lott, a singer from the UK. Her voice was beyond fantastic when she sang a cappella for us, plus she seemed pretty nice and down to earth which is refreshing. It wasn't until nearly the end of the party that I figured out I was receiving the machine. Since I love blue and purples, I chose Indigo. I don't want to take the machine out of its box, so we'll just have to trust what's in there.

To win: you'll need to email us at BlondieandBrownie at gmail dot com by Friday morning, 9am. I'll be picking a winner at random sometime before noon. Friends, family, former coworkers and flings are encouraged to enter.

Also, I'd like to take a minute to make everyone aware that we've joined 2009 and started a Facebook page! This took a while for various reasons, but it would make us SUPER HAPPY if you "liked" us, even though Facebook is becoming a thing of the past.
