Wifey's Mediterranean Cruise and a Gift for You

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

Wifey went to Italy and all she brought me back was …

… this beautiful Venetian blown glass bottle stopper.

It’s that time. My girlfriends getaway to the Mediterranean will air on The Travel Channel as a part of their “Great Cruises” series this Saturday, March 21, at 8 p.m. (check your local listings to confirm times). Last October two of my closest girlfriends and I took a Royal Caribbean Cruisetour to several cities in Spain, France and Italy. Click here to read more.

I’m so excited about the show airing that I thought it’d be great to share a little piece of the Mediterranean with you. I picked up this gem exploring the tiny streets – and shops – in Venice. I love pretty things, especially when they dress up pretty bottles of wine, ahem.

Seriously, I’m not going to send you on a wild goose chase to be the chosen one – I know how busy you are – but I will ask you for a little bit of love.

There’s several ways to win and they all count as separate entries. Drumroll please…

1. Follow me. That’s right, you guessed it. Head on over to the sidebar and click that infamous button or subscribe to this blog via RSS feed.
2. Write a post on your blog to share details about the show and contest with your readers.
3. Twitter a link to this post promoting the show and the contest.
4. Watch the show then come back and tell me what color wrap I wore in Venice.

Easy, right?

While I work on the honor system, I still need you to leave me a comment on this post and tell me which and how many of the things you do did so I can put you in the running to win. I’d love to see your links so the rest of us can visit you, too. The contest will stay open until Monday, March 23, 11:59 p.m. EST., and I’ll announce the winner one week from today, March 24.

So, what are you waiting for? I’m sure you’ve got a bottle of something, somewhere that’s waiting to get dressed up.

Winks & Smiles,

How beautiful! I am subscribed... Is there a chance the show will be online somehow, since we don't have TV reception here?

Shanny March 17, 2009 at 11:21 PM  

I started following you one day before this post, possibly psychic?... either way it still counts right?

Thanks, Ladies!

MoziEsme, I will see if they are going to put it online, but I'm sure I'm going to record it so no worries, we'll work it out.

Shanny, Yes! It counts - smiles!

Ok, I saw the show. It was exciting and very informative. I definitely want to take a Royal Carribean Cruise to the Mediterrean. The only decision now is do I take my family first or do I go wit the girls?! Oh and you wore a purple wrap in Venice. I know you had a great trip, it looked like it. I Partridge family truly enjoyed the trip with you as well. Good times..smiles.
