100th Post Giveaway!

(vancouver lit by fireworks, from *here*) 
as i promised
i am hosting my first giveaway
in honor of my 100th post!

i am giving away a half-pound bag of
delicious vancouver

because i have an incredible amount of pride in my city,
i wanted to give you the chance to try something local.

blenz is a vancouver-based coffee company,
and their first store opened way back in 1992 on robson street
(right in downtown vancouver)
the beans i have chosen for you are called "gastown blend"
which is named after one of the oldest neighborhoods in vancouver,
famous for its steam clock that blows off steam every hour.

since starting my blog,
i have noticed that many of you are
university students,
new professionals,
new parents,
and it seems to me that most of you love coffee...
almost as much as i do.

to enter... 
leave a comment on this post,
telling me where you're from
so i can get to know you all a little bit better.

for an extra entry,
become an official follower of my blog
*if you're already one of my followers, you get an extra entry too*
*because i reward loyalty like that*
and if you want to blog or tweet about my giveaway,
comment with a link and you'll get another entry!

i know many of you don't blog over the weekend,
so i'll keep this contest open until the end of tuesday
and announce the winner on wednesday.
please make sure you include in your comment a way
for me to get in touch with you
(blog address, email address, etc...)
