pay it forward (and a giveaway)

Sometimes, you have a morning that requires coffee. You need it. Maybe it's chilly outside or you're super tired and you just know it will make you feel a little bit better. I needed this cup of coffee. It ended up being free. And it totally made my day. Yesterday, the woman in front of me in the drive-thru payed it forward and treated me (and a few cars behind me) to a free cup of coffee. So cool.
I've never been the recipient of a pay-it-forward-type situation, but I knew I wanted to do something nice for someone else right away. So I'm giving away these three hand-knit newborn hats.
Just leave a comment below and take your pick – let me know if you'd like cream, gray or light blue. These are definitely very small newborn-sized hats, so they won't work well for older babies. Just a little disclaimer. I'll pick three winners at random on Wednesday, April 18 with one catch ... you have to pass it on, pay it forward.  :)

  2. I love this concept! We have also been beneficaries of a coffee pay it forward! I would pass on one of these adorable hats to either my sister who is due in July or a blogger friend who just announced she was pregnant:)

  6. Great idea. I love the dark blue one. I'd pay it forward by giving the hat to my friend, Miki, who just had her first child- a son- last night. :)

  10. i love this idea and, regardless of whether i win, i'm going to do that next time i'm in the starbuck's drive-thru--what better way to make your own day than make someone else's?

    i love all three hats--any of them would be so sweet on my little one's head due in a couple months.

  14. These are so cute! I'm due in the end of July--love the cream. Also, I love, loved your recent posts about parenting (advice and your daughter's reaction to being a big sis). I worry all the time about how my 4-year-old boy will react to his new sis.
    I hope things get a little easier for your girl very soon.

  19. When I worked at Starbucks we had a whole morning of pay it forward. Many people were taken off guard. It was pretty cool to see it go on for a few hours uninterrupted.
