Valentines Giveaway

Home / Valentines Giveaway - February 8, 2012 , by kimberly

Good morning! I have some fun news that I want to get to so I’ll be quick with the usual stuff…


I hit the pool again this morning. Bright and early! I actually got there before the little worker bees had arrived and I got to wait outside in my car until the doors were unlocked. Brrr…

My swim this morning wasn’t all that great. I need to pay more attention to what I eat at night – late night snacking and A TON of sodium really screw me for morning workouts. I almost hate to admit that after dinner I also had a thing of Top Ramen (gasp!), fruit snacks and some chocolate. I don’t know what it is with me but lately I have been craving top ramen and I think it has something to do with the salt. I really need to figure out a better way to tame that craving than to just give in to it. Its embarrassing to admit that…


Thankfully, my breakfast this morning is very nutritious. Walnuts for healthy fats and omega 3s, a Babybel for added calcium and protein, an apple (a day keeps the doctor away), and a Chobani for the ultimate in protein.

I also had a nice warm cup of Gingerbread Tea, followed immediately by a steamy cup of coffee. It is freakin freezin in my office today!

Okay, on to the exciting stuff!

I am doing my first ever giveaway on the blog! Woohoo! I actually have a little variety gift pack of some favorite things that I love so much that I want to share them with you all. This giveaway is not sponsored by any one in particular – just out of the kindness of my heart :)

    I made the boneless chicken wings you had posted for the superbowl and my whole family loved them. I used a mild sauce so the kids could eat them too. We used ranch for dip as well. Highly recommended to anyone :) I already like your FB page too but will head over there too :) Thanks for a chance to win

    Oh where do I start? I LOVED the blackberry glaze chicken…I can’t think of what you called it when you made it, but it was SO easy and delicious. Along with a handful of others, including the toasted oats from this AM — a quick and simple alternative to Granola, and yum!

    I made your “accidentally amazing” chili and loved it. And it made quite alot, so I’m having the last bit that’s left on my baked potato for lunch today. You come up with so many simple and good ideas it’s hard to keep up with trying them all. The next two that I’m going to try are the CranRose Chicken Skewers and the Toasted Oats. I already know they will be tasty. Looking forward to your next creations!

  12. I think those Oatmeal Chicken Burgers sound fabulous! I need to try those soon! :)

  13. I tweeted the giveaway and I’m following you! :) @Christianqt07
