Step Up and Win: Pitcher Perfect Winner!

The second Next Step giveaway brought in 101 separate entries to win the Le Creuset 3 qt. Sangria Pitcher from CSN Stores and! And you all are a thirsty bunch. I loved reading all of your drink choices. They ranged from the sweet and innocent iced tea to the refreshing cosmo/sangria/margarita cocktail choice to the slightly wild Torito (vodka and peanut butter? Who knew!)

So who's the big winner? tells me that it is coliebear who is after my own heart by professing a love of bottled root beer. (Have you had Sprechers out of Milwaukee? Delish.) It makes me nostalgic for glass bottles of Coca-Cola - and by nostalgic I mean for two weeks ago when I bought one at the European style grocery in Lincoln Square.

Coliebear, please email me back at lydiasnextstep at gmail dot com with shipping information and we'll have the good folks at CSN Stores get you your new making-life-a-little-more-fun accessory!

Thank you to and for posting this giveaway to help drive some traffic - I hope that the participants in this giveaway will continue to check back in on the blog to see what's new!


  1. was the lincoln square european style grocer Gene's by chance?
