Dolce Gusto Holiday Giveaway Winner!

I want this Dolce Gusto Carousel -- it even kind of looks like a Coffee Christmas Tree

Try as I might, I’m having problems getting into the holiday spirit this week.

Although I’m pretty much done my shopping, have planned our annual Christmas Eve roadtrip to meet my parents and sister for dinner, and have even figured out what we’re doing for New Years (a very low key evening of food and beer at Fat Head’s Brewery), a lot of this year’s festivities just seem like more items on my to-do list.

I know that’s the complete opposite of what I’m supposed to be feeling, so I’m hoping that Scott’s and my Christmas plans of putting together our new LEGO train, cooking dinner, and the Doctor Who Christmas Special will bring me out of the grinch-y mood I’ve been in the last couple of days.

Enough about my first world problems though!  You’re here to find out who won the Dolce Gusto Titanium Piccolo, aren’t you?

After placing all of the entries into an Excel document…

…and then using Random.org to pick the winnner:

Entry 85 — Mojamala2 has won the Dolce Gusto Piccolo! (Jessica, email me by this Friday, Dec. 23rd at clueintocleveland (at) gmail (dot) com to redeem your prize.)

Here's to hoping your holidays are a little happier if you win this Dolce Gusto Piccolo

UPDATE: Congratulations to Mojamala2 for winning the Dolce Gusto!

Besides the normal holiday stresses like shopping and decorating, this season has proven a little busier than normal in our house with the addition of a few roadtrips.

From weddings in Philly to our upcoming drive to Austin, Texas — Scott and I are starting to wear a little thin on energy.

To de-stress, I’ve been trying to head to the gym whenever I can to work out. But when I just need to keep moving, I’ve been turning to my favorite dispensers of caffeine. My electric tea kettle (still one of my favorite wedding gifts) and my Dolce Gusto Piccolo are delicious sanity savers.

I got the Piccolo a few months ago after the Dolce Gusto Foodie Feedup at Greenhouse Tavern.  And I’ve thoroughly enjoyed making myself frothy cappuccinos and chai tea lattes without having to run out to Starbucks (here are all of their flavors).

Now, you can win your own Titanium Piccolo to keep you going while you’re out shopping local for your holiday gifts!
