This is my cup. I start each and every day with diet coke in my insulated cup. The colorful sequins put a song in my heart, a little pep in my step. Occasionally I will borrow my son's cup which has the Mardi Gras colored confetti. (He is a nut about Mardi Gras. More on that in February!) But I use this cup EVERY DAY.
So what has me changing cups this weekend?
The Texas Longhorns, that's what!
My dear, sweet Mamma gave me these cups a couple of years ago for my birthday. Just because I'm only dragging them out when Texas becomes ranked #1 in both the AP and Coaches' Polls doesn't mean I'm a fair weather fan. In fact, I am a UT grad who has, in the past, named alpacas "Vin-Sanity" (after Vince Young for those of you who don't follow football, he's a football player) and "Major Applewhite". Get ready for a little "Colt" to be pronking around in the fields this Fall.
These cups are the greatest! Virtually indestructible, they keep drinks cold and the glass doesn't sweat, protecting my fine antique furniture. To celebrate the Texas Longhorns #1 ranking, I am giving away a set of 4 - 16oz. Tervis Tumblers. The winner can choose tumblers from either the Glitter category which includes Christmas, Mardi Gras, Springtime, or Multi (my cup above), or any available Collegiate teams. The contest will end at 11pm (EST) on Monday, October 20, 2008.
To enter, leave a comment telling me either: 1) why you agree that the Longhorns are the best college football team in the land (if you disagree - feel free to keep it to yourself, or 2) which cup you will choose if you win! Leaving a comment will earn you one entry. You can earn two additional entries by posting this giveaway on your own blog. Be sure to tell me if you do so. I look forward to checking out your blog. The winner will be chosen at random.
Please note that if you leave a comment and it doesn't show up right away - it will soon. I did get it so you don't need to comment twice. I moderate comments to fight spam so it may take an hour or so for it to show up on the blog.
Thanks for your responses! I'm excited to see who wins. Good luck everyone!
