Today begins the super cozy and delightful "Baby It's Cold Outside" basket of love giveaway!!
I am only posting this here because Google Followers has been crazy and won't correctly transfer you wonderful people. I don't want any of you to miss out on this! BUT please do make a note that I blog over HERE now! :)

I so wish I could enter my own giveaway - that's how awesome this basket is! There's over $400 worth of amazing goodies to win! How to enter? Just make a donation of $5 towards our Ethiopia Adoption. For every $5 we will put your name on the list…. so, $10 will put your name on twice… $25 five times… and so forth. Simple right? Read all the way to the bottom to see how you can get an extra entry too!

Let's just get right down to the good stuff, shall we? Here are the fabulous goodies in this basket...
What could be better on a cold winter day than some delicious Starbucks coffee in this adorable keep calm and carry on coffee mug? Enjoy three 1 pound blends: Yukon, Espresso Roast, and Decaf Sumatra. mmmm
Coffee not your thing? Well then check out this adorable ceramic mustard teapot from the carriage house cafe! What to put in it? Well, how about one of the 10 assortments of loose leaf teas included in this basket! Each bag hold 2 ounces of yummy flavors: chai, bourbon street, egyptian camomile, english breakfast, assam, apple spice, earl grey, monks blend, and winter palace marzipan rooibus.
Speaking of yummy... this candle smells absolutely heavenly! Light it for a cozy glow while you hang out on the couch with your next item...
Yes, yes it is!! That's a brand new kindle just for YOU!!! YAY!
And while you're reading on your new kindle next to your new yummy candle you can snuggle up in the softest blanket you've ever felt! This Hotel Collection throw is seriously the fuzziest, softest, warmest thing I've ever felt. You will love it. Promise.
You know what else you'll love? Yup, this CollectionEighteen inifinity scarf. Super warm. Super cute. Super Cozy.
Since we're on the cute thing... everyone knows Dear Lillie ... well how would you like to have your very own Joy To the World thermal in whatever size you want? Her thermals are unique, high quality, and just plain adorable!
If you're out and about it your new thermal and feel a little chilly... toss on this fleece wrap! It's super soft and very warm! One size fits all and there are so many fun ways to customize your look... add a belt, stick a brooch on it... wear it under a jacket or as a vest. It's super cute and very trendy right now!
What's that you said? You need a brooch for that wrap? Well you're in luck! Because included in this basket is a Nina Bina big ol' bloom hair clip / pin in Navy Blue. We're also throwing in this adorable Nina Bina small zipped pouch to match. :) Toss in your keys and lipgloss... you're ready to go!
If you're out and about or just home relaxing this CD is something you will love listening to. We are blessed to be friends with the extraordinarily talented musicians who are adoptive parents themselves! They have two lovely daughters from China... one of whom is in our youth group!
Ralph Lauren? YES! I love these cream crocheted leg warmers. They would be super cute under a pair of leather boots or just over some skinny jeans. Pop on this Vintage Blue stretchband for a little flair. On those cold mornings while you're sipping your yukon blend coffee you can jot down your thoughts, dreams, prayers, and inspiration in this sweet little journal.
Since the theme IS "baby it's cold outside" it is only appropriate that we're giving away so many cute ways to keep warm! This Nina Bina Ruffle Jersey scarf is a way to keep warm and look lovely... and it's all yours!
All this talk of coziness and yumminess has made me really hungry! My favorite winter treat is a big bread bowl of cheddar broccoli soup. mmmm. So go ahead and have bowl... or two... on me! :)

Now do you see why I wish I could enter my own giveaway?? I literally want every single thing in this basket!! It's just so... cozy!
