Definately a hot cup of coffee with no interruptions! I love my coffee, baths I can take or leave. My tub isn't one of those big garden tubs, so I never relax.

trish said...

My answer probably disqualifies me but since you chose two of my favorite things I can't chose between them. Instead I would opt to take a bath IN my coffee! See? You CAN have your cake and eat it too!

seven said...

I would totally go for the bath, but someone would have to hook me up with a bathtub first. I only have a small shower. :(
I've been yearning for a nice deep bathtub...

seven said...

Oh, and I hope you feel better soon. :)

Michelle said...

Well, since I never get to finish one I'm gonna say a nice cup of coffee!
Michelle

It's Whimsy said...

A coffee while in the Bath. That's possible, right?

What about coffee in the tub? I guess if I can't say that, I pick a bath!

Melody said...

I've been planning a nice bath for about three months now, but it never seems to happen, so I'm going with the bath. In a dream world, though, I would have a lovely coffee to drink WHILE I bathed.

And music.

Yeah, right!

Mama Zen said...

Coffee in peace!

The Dukes Family said...

I'd take coffee with no interruptions (although it's a toss-up) ... and I'd drink it AT Starbucks to really ensure no kid-interruptions.

Becky @ Boys Rule My Life said...

Coffee! I'd be blogging, too, of course!

Thanks for the giveaway!

A bath. It relaxes me so much! But coffee and reading blogs is my second choice. ;-)

Dawn said...

Bath time for me and starbucks for my coffee-loving husband. Perfect!

kat said...

Generally I would choose a bath but spending time with friends is a lot less awkward over coffee!

Lizardbreath said...

Hmm...probably the bath. Although I'd love combining the relaxing bath with a cup of hot chocolate.

Someone Being Me said...

I have to say coffee. Then I can surf the blogs and nibble on something sweet too. Surfing the blogs in the bathtub could be dangerous.

idyll hands said...

Hmmm - I'd chose a bath with no interruptions... a nice, hot bath - oh, and one that doesn't cool off! The never ending, hot, uninterrupted bath :)

Monkey Kisses said...

Now those are just some of my favorite simple things in life.. coffee, bath, and bath ice cream!

mattie said...

Darnit...can't I have a Lush bath with a cup of coffee??? Waving not drowning bath bomb with a skinny cinnamon dolce latte would be heaven! I have banned myself from Lush until I lose 10 pounds...check out my blog...but if I won a bath bomb, that wouldn't be cheating...I promise!! AWESOME give-a-way! mengels[at]hotmail[dot]com

Amanda said...

Can I have my coffee while I'm in the bath? No? All right....I'll pick coffee.

The Reads said...

I would pick the Coffee maybe with a sweet treat along with it.

Jennifer said...

Hands down a relaxing bath!
Smiles!

michelle said...

Baths used to be my thing way before I had kids. Now, I would be more likely to go for the cup of coffee. I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

Cyn said...

Tea or bath - can I have both at the same time? Ok If I have to pick just one I'd say tea.

Paige said...

I would have to choose the bath. Thanks for the great prize!

Nikki said...

If I had to make a list of my favorite things a good cup of coffee and a good bath would be right at the top (along with Colin Farrell and Yankee Candles). Please add me!

Stacey said...

I would go for the uninterrupted coffee.

Thanks.

slmpckins@comcast.net

Celeste said...

Coffee--for sure! Even better if it's a cup to share with my husband!

Katie said...

The coffee.

SuperSaverSusan said...

Hot tea uninterrupted. I wrinkle too quickly in the tub!

Jenn said...

I think coffee for sure...although a bath sounds wonderful too

I would definitely go for the relaxing, uninterrupted bath because I NEVER get one of those!

Robin said...

GREAT give away! Thanks for the opportunity to enter and please count me in. BTW, I love love LOVE my bubble baths. DH calls them my "mini vacations".

twinsunplus1 said...

A cup of coffee with no interruptions, most definately! What a great giveaway. Hope you got that nap!

Allison said...

Love love love Starbucks!

~Billie~ said...

That is a difficult question to answer! I would have to say a nice hot cup of coffee without interruptions. Thankfully, hubby is great about taking the kids so that I can have a nice quiet bath.

Natalie said...

Cup of tea and no interruptions.

denyse said...

Love coffee!- Hmmm and baths...

Heather said...

definately a bath!

Kristen said...

Uninteruppted coffee time for sure.

Don and Lisa Osborn said...

Great giveaway! I prefer the coffee time. I am not as cold then...

Thanks!

Stacey said...

Seeing as how I find my coffee cups all around the house with barely a sip or two missing and the remains cold and untouched, I would choose to have the uninterrupted coffee time!! :)

Sileena said...

A nice hot cup of uninterrupted coffee any day of the day

Scarlett said...

Tea (with a book :P), definitely!

Heidi @ GGIP said...

I'm going with the bath, for the pure novelty of it.

I haven't used any LUSH products since my mom moved back to the US from the UK. They were pretty neat though.

Thanks and have a great time with the contests!

mommaz said...

an uninterrupted bath anytime! the only exception is hubby joining me!

kelly said...

coffee!

plin said...

I pick coffee but LUSH products are pretty irresistible...but I don't usually have time to soak in the tub!

Rayna said...

Hard to decide - but I would probably say coffee.

Betsy said...

Coffee!

Emily (Laundry and Lullabies) said...

Definitely the coffee! It is much easier to enjoy a good book with coffee than in a bath, and I like my pleasures together. :)

Karla said...

I enjoy both... but I'd probably go for the coffee! Great giveaway! Fun game! Thanks so much!

Heather said...

If I can't have both... A nice hot bath is my favorite.

Jessica said...

coffee... no doubt. count me in!

Debbie#3 said...

coffee and a bath... lovely!

Lissete said...

I could have sworn that I commened yesterday! Anyhoo, I prefer a nice long bath with something to read and yummy smelly stuff. I don't drink hot coffee BUT I love me some frappuccino!

Shalee said...

Coffee!!! (everytime)

Snowbird said...

Ooo, ooo, ooo, coffee!! And especially Starbucks coffe. Sign me up.

Qtpies7 said...

Well, I am a gas station cheap cappuccino drinker, hehe. But I do love Starbucks Spiced apple cider! I would love to sit in the tub with my coffee and a good book, but I would choose my coffee over the bath any day. As a matter of fact the last time I got in the bath instead of a shower was the night before my son was born, and he is 15 months old, lol.
My 16yo loves her baths, as well as my mom, who will soon be living here.

Aggiema (Michelle) said...

The un-interupted bath sounds heavenly. I can enjoy coffee even with an audience, a bath not so much so!

Melissa said...

I'm not much of a bath person. I'd definitely choose the cup of coffee or tea.

christir@dls.net said...

I would always take the peaceful bath. But it's even better with a cup of tea too. Great give-away!

Hélène said...

I would LOVE a hot cup of tea without interruptions. That happens....never!

Kristy said...

I'd choose a hot cup of coffee (or even better, hot cocoa), hands down. I tried to get into taking baths when I had a jacuzzi tub in my last house, but just never quite got the appeal. I loved the first few minutes, but the water never stayed warm enough long enough to make the all the work worth it.

Billie said...

I would choose the bath - nice hot and steamy. The tea on the side would be a bonus. I need coffee in the morning so that is never un-interrupted.

Laura said...

A hot bath with no interruptions while drinking a nice warm cup of tea!!!!!! :~)


laura_licious101(AT)hotmail(DOT)com

Jenny said...

I would go for the uninterupted bath (with hopefully a cup of tea too)

Bree said...

Uninterrupted coffee for me!

Fiddle D. Dee said...

Hmmm... I can smell the coffee!!

momofmhasr said...

What a combination!!!

simplyserina said...

coffee!

Steve and Christy said...

Today I think I'd go for the coffee.

Erin said...

I'd love to have an uninterrupted chai frappuccino, but I'm willing to settle for the chai WITH interruptions. Thanks for the drawing!

emhagedon at gmail

Missy said...

I'd have to say a bath. Love Starbucks too. Thanks!

Mama Laura said...

I would choose a bath!

sassy2 said...

Nothing more calming and relaxing that a nice steamy cup of hot coffee!!

Carrie said...

Can I have the bath with a cup of coffee on the side?

Londa said...

I would have to say I want the best of both worlds...

ljbs3 (at) juno (dot) com

Jennifer P said...

I'd pick a cup of tea... with a book... I've never really gotten into long baths! (I know, I'm weird.)

Jenn said...

Oh I would love to win this! Please enter me.

Lady_MSnow said...

Could I have my coffee while enjoying my bath? ;D

Shannon said...

Your giveaway sounds great. I would take the bath in a second!
Would love for you to enter me!
Thanks
palmersf@comcast.net

Rae said...

Two of my favorite things too! And I love that mug. Hmm, I'd choose the bath; it would last longer than a cup of coffee!

Laura said...

For me - a (Lush) bath with no interuptions. I can only imagine what that's like.

KnittinChick said...

I'd choose the coffee or tea. I tend to get too hot in the tub and jump out before I'm totally relaxed.

Love Lush bath bombs:-)

Christy said...

Funny..those are my favorite things too.

Melissa said...

Count me in! I'm for a hot bath!!

Romie said...

The bath all the way. Please enter me in your give-away.

windycindy said...

Hi, I would choose the cup of coffee in front of my fireplace! Thanks for a fun giveaway! Cindi
jchoppes[at]hotmail[dot]com

Rebecca said...

coffee and baths!

Nise' said...

A cup of tea cause I'd enjoy it in my hot tub! ;O) Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

Ms. Can't Be Wrong said...

Hhhmmm, that's some serious thinking for a Monday!

I think I will have to go with coffee!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Kara K said...

I've loved LUSH products from when I studied abroad in London and it's been forever since I've been able to indulge in one of their bath bombs. I would probably have to pick an uninterrupted bath as Starbucks is more widely available where I live.

Of course, it's a toss up and two thumbs up to you for combining two of my favorite things!

devildogwife said...

Ah, a nice, peaceful bath sounds oh so wonderful right about now. :)

Amylou said...

That bath bomb is the bomb! Oh what fun that would be.

mer said...

I vote for an uninterrupted bath!

This is a great giveaway! Thank you!

Marcia said...

I would definately choose the bath! My toddler has to take a bath everytime mommy is going for one.

Katie said...

Bath!

amyswandering said...

Most definitely a bath -Count me in please!

Jennifer said...

My wit is not so original I am sure that no one else has suggested it, but could I have my coffee served to me in the tub, by a hunk?

Jenna Z said...

I would take the nice relaxing warm drink. I've never been able to enjoy long soaks, the water gets chilly, and I end up being bored and cold.

Wendy said...

Great giveaway:) Count me in! It def. would be the bath!!!

Naomi said...

Probably the bath, just because it would take longer! I can suck down the coffee if need be...

Shannon said...

I would love an uninterrupted bath.

Under one condition...does it have to be MY bathtub?

Cause I want my bath to be in the tub that was in Pretty Woman...not my dinky little tub that when I get in it, my knees, pregnant belly, and chest area all stick up out of the water and get COLD.

If I have to take it in my tub...I'll take a nice hot cup of tea, lol.

Britt said...

definitely the bath!!!

Fresh Girl said...

Give me the coffee any day! ;) Please put my name in the hat...my email address is in my profile.

I Was Just Thinking.... said...

I don't have the most alluring bathroom - not alluring enough to lounge in so I'd have to go with the coffee. Please pick me!

Sweetpeas said...

The coffee, but when they perfect the (affordable) waterproof laptop so I can be online in the tub, THEN the bath might win out (how sad am I?)!

Allison (aklemen@telus.net) said...

I'm going to have to say a bath. I get to have coffee every day, and although I would enjoy it more if it were uninterrupted, I NEVER get to take a bath. And an interrupted bath is certainly not worth the trouble!

Thanks for including us up North!

Once Upon a Dream... said...

Oh, I'd love to win! Both choices are incredibly tempting, but if I had a choice I'd go with the coffee. Please count me in! Thank you!

I'm doing a giveaway on both of my blogs:

http://airforcefamily2007.blogspot.com

I'll be doing a new giveaway everyday until Friday. Thought you might want to know.

momofangel

Marilyn said...

I would have to go with coffee ... It would be so lovely to drink a cup in peace.

Heather said...

Unless I can pick coffee in the bath, I'd have to go with coffee. Great prize!!

krisnreine said...

Definitely a hot bath. A hot, good-smelling bath with a good book. It's instant butter-muscles. :D

Laura @ Laura Williams' Musings said...

A Nice cup of coffee without being interupted by one of the 7 children or dh. Now that would be nice.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Stop by my place to win a bath set & candles or one of two copies of a book I'm giving away.

Laura @ Laura Williams' Musings

Fiona said...

What a hard choice.......I love them both. But there is nothing like the first sip of a perfect cup of coffee.
delcourt5(@)telus(.)net

Susan said...

Oh wow, can I have a great cup of coffee in the tub with no interruptions? If I had to choose, I would probably pick the cup of coffee. Great giveaway, thank you.

Christine said...

With six little ones (all under 7) running around, I would have to say that I would die for a nice hot bath UnINTERupTED!!! Please pick me!

Kelley said...

Definitely a cup of coffee without interuptions! I'm usually chugging coffee while trying to blow dry my hair and then, I finish it in my "go-cup" on the way to school. It would be bliss to drink a cup of coffee that was the same temp from start to finish!

Kelley
kaprhal @ sbcglobal.net

Angela said...

The Bath!!

greg&sarina said...

please enter me!!
thanks!
I'd go with the bath!
God bless

CC said...

I would certainly choose the coffee! I always have to re-microwave mine 3 or 4 times because I keep getting interrupted!


cdcmail(at)gmail(dot)com

peg42 said...

Wow. Tough choice. With two boys that always seem to burst in on my baths or a nice cup of "Hot" (What's hot anymore?) tea, I guess I would have to choose a nice hot bath. (maybe I can sneak a cup of hot tea in the tub).
Thanks for the great giveaway.

Kyra said...

You ask a hard question...as the mother of a toddler I'd have to go with the cup of coffee. I just really can't visualize an uninterupted bath. :)

Teri in CO said...

Definitely the coffee with no interruptions! Please include me!

Danana Banana said...

A bath for sure! My favorite...

Shane said...

wow - this could score me some real points with my wife!

Elena said...

Thanks for the contest! I vote the cup of tea--drinking it while still hot would be great!

Deborah said...

i'd go with the coffee!

Keara @ Now I Know... said...

I wouldn't mind a Starbucks Hot Chocolate w/ mint! YUMMO! I love Bath Fizzy Balls too!

Aimee said...

I'd have to say a bath with no interruptions...seems every time I try to relax in the tub, everyone has to get in the bathroom

The Chatty Housewife- said...

I choose the coffee! Preferably at Starbucks with a good book.nw_wife(at)hotmail(dot)com

graduatedlearning said...

hmm...a tough decision. I love drinking tea, but a bath would be AMAZING...I haven't taken a bath in ages (don't worry, I shower!!)

Fratzels said...

A bath gets my vote...but can I have the bath and cup of tea whilst in the bath? Now that sounds ideal!

Melissa Markham said...

If I had to choose it would be an uninterrupted bath, thank goodness, with this great giveaway, I don't have to choose:)

Jennifer said...

An uninterrupted bath in one of those gigantic luxorius bathrooms with candles and rose petals everywhere. Ahhhh peace.

Chel said...

LUSH is my oh-my-gosh favorite bath stuff!

Gretchen said...

I see I'm not the only selfish one and want BOTH of those. :) The bath wins by a hair. Oh, you've made me in the mood to draw the water and fill the tub right now. It's snowing. Perfect day for a bath. Great giveaway.

Carrie said...

I would choose tea and quiet time! That mug is great!

Mary@notbefore7 said...

the cup of tea baby! I am not a bath person!

Ange & family said...

That's a hard decision for me because it depends what time of day it is. I really love a bath before bed, but I love a hot cup of tea almost any time of day, especially uninterrupted. So, I guess I'll choose the tea.... and that Starbucks card!

Rachie S. said...

Bath...
Thanks for such a great giveaway!

Anonymous said...

definitely give me uninterrupted coffee! lovemylittlefamily@yahoo.com

~Nancy~ said...

Coffee....

IN the bath tub! ;-)

Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance!

Be sure to enter mine.

Brenda said...

I fell in love with LUSH just this year at my annual "One night away with Hubby" Event. I fell in love with Starbucks years ago and have been a devoted fan ever since. I do enjoy Starbucks often, but only enjoy a bath once a year.
Have a blessed day.
bnemeyer@gmail.com

Just Jaime said...

Reading about your giveaway made me drool. Sipping a mocha in a LUSH filled tub = bliss.
