You all know that doormat theft is somewhat of a common occurence in my family. I myself have been a victim of doormat theft twice. I have also been a victim of doormat reward sign vandalism. Sad but true. Doormat theft, as I have said, is no laughing matter.
Actually, it kinda is.
Which is why I was thrilled to get this comment on my doormat theft blog entry:
You won’t believe the number of people who order doormats from us saying their mat got stolen! Almost once a week we get a call from a doormat theft victim like yourself. I think you should get one of our ‘Oh Shit Not You Again’ doormats to give the perp a message!
How funny is that! Doormat theft is common and doormat companies are aware of the problem affecting lives every day. Maybe we should hold a Fun Run?
Even funnier is that they found my blog entry and commented — what a fun company they are! I immediately email Coco Mats ‘N More to thank them for the comment and we developed a little back and forth. They were extremely generous and offered me a coupon code for 25% off my next doormat — that can be used 3 times over the course of 3 years! That means that I can give it to a friend, or use it when my next one gets stolen, or give to a reader. I wasn’t going to buy another one, since it would likely get stolen — but how can I resist now that I have a discount!
Especially when they have such funny doormats on their site. Some of my favorites:
There are many more great ones! Click here to browse through Coco Mats ‘N More’s entire selection.
So I had decided to use one of the codes myself, give one to a friend and offer one out to a reader. But when I discussed this possibility with the wonderful people at Coco Mats ‘N More, they offered to donate a FREE DOORMAT to one of my readers!

Preview: Another Contest Later This Week!
A Woman’s Infinite Confidence
Last week I attended a Blogger Cocktail Event at Townhouse Spa. The event was called “A Woman’s Infinite Confidence.” I will provide a full recap later this week, but let me just say that I had an amazing massage. I met wonderful health, wellness and lifestyle bloggers. I learned about Dr. Rebecca Booth’s Venus Week and womens’ hormones and bodies. I also learned about Always Infinity pads (and saw an awesome presentation involving coffee). I ate delicious foods, drank champagne and came home with an incredible gift bag.
I think you will be really interested to hear all about what I learned and about Dr. Booth’s book, which I can’t wait to read! I think maybe 84% of the women reading this might especially enjoy what I learned about Always Infinity. I’ve got event pictures and other fascinating information. I am excited to write an entry with all this information, but with all the blog server issues and the doormat giveaway and other overall business, I want to wait until I can give my review the attention it deserves.
And I need to mention that quite a few people at the event came up to me to speak about my doormat situation! Who would have thought this would incite so much interest?!
So please check back later this week for the new contest information! Hint: It involves the gift bag!
