A Monumental Blogiversary Giveaway

I can’t believe it…I got my Blogiversary date mixed up!!!

All this time, I had thought that I made my way into the blog world on April 11th, 2010; but last night as I was going through my old posts, I realized that I actually wrote my very first, two-sentence post on April 7th. GAHH!

So anyways, even though we’re now a few days off, we’ll celebrate like it’s the real thing…

It’s my Blogiversary!!!!

And what better way to celebrate and thank all of my wonderful readers than with a fun giveaway, right?!?


Blogging has become such a huge passion of mine, that I honestly can’t imagine not doing it anymore, and there are so many new opportunities that have been brought my way in this past year that I am forever grateful for.

But even more importantly, I have the most amazing readers who, even on my crappiest of days, are going to be right there to lift my spirits. I seriously can’t thank you all enough for supporting me in my blogging endeavors. But I can at least try by giving away some goodies!

One lucky reader will have the shot at winning my hand-picked prize pack, complete with all of my favorite goodies:


Fun, right?!? Don’t be surprised if a few extras end up getting thrown in there, too. Surprised smile

Alright, so here’s what you have to do to enter…I’m gonna make ya work a little bit for this one by going on a little scavenger hunt. Mwahahaha…

***To enter, you must leave a comment on this post answering the following three questions:

  1. Name one restaurant I’ve visited in the past 3 months.
  2. Name one place I went on vacation last year?

(Hint: The little search bar to the right of my page will be a BIG help!)

Yes, I know you’ll be able to see other comments, but try your best to “keep your eyes on your own post!” I’ll also be on the lookout for unique entries! Winking smile

    3. March 23, 2011 – loved how Cody was trying to investigate the “new stuff” on the floor while you were trying to sweep it up!

    So glad you starting blogging, because I love reading it — it’s one of three that I check everyday! (Also, you totally introduced me to Chobani – and I probably never would have tried it otherwise!)

  45. Jordan P says

    Happy Blogaversary, Courtney! Newish reader, but rest assured, when I first found you back in December I caught up on most of your posts so I feel ready.

    1. Despite initial plans for a simple jaunt to the outlets, you hit up the Amherst Brewing Company for some dry bison and (slightly less dry) beer!!
    2. Well, even though it was somewhat for work-ish (For the Healthy Living Summit), I think you had enough fun sampling all the different breads that Chicago had to offer (seriously, check out those posts! BREADGASM!) for it to be considered a vacation.
    3. March 13, 2011 – Cody ended up having a blast with Kegs and Eggs, DESPITE being a sober senor… (unless you slipped him a catNiparita.)

  46. Michelle says

    HAS it really been a year!? I remember reading your brand new posts and not realizing you were a “newbie” you’ve got natural talent as a blog writer lady!!

    1. You and your blog friend Heather went to Aperitivo Bistro right before you saw Black Swan – BLACK SWAN!!! I have yet to see this movie..
    2. Vacation, I know you’d love to visit Italy some day!! My boyfriend went there for a race in 2008, unfortunately I couldn’t go. Okay off topic. Back on topic, one of your newest vacations that you first posted on your blog was that you went to Burlington Vermont. Which stuck with me because one of my first times on an airplane (Remember I’m from Canada) I flew to Montreal. From there my friends family and I drove to BURLINGTON VERMONT TOO!!!! I think that’s why I totally kept reading your blog 😉
    3. Cuddle buddy Cody from Feb 16th 2011. Litte baby kitty!!! I love reminissing lol
    Sorry my comment is so huge… lol trying to be unique here!

  73. Carly J and Laura R says


    Happy blog anniversary to you on this very special day,
    I look forward to reading your blog each morning I must say.

    Your blogger meet up at Peaches Cafe made me want to whip up a batch,
    Pancakes, syrup, bananas, pecans- what could be a better match??

    And on February 23rd you filled out a survey I would not miss,
    It was also so cute to see you give Cody a big ol’ kiss!

    Last summer you headed to my hometown of the Windy City,
    Too bad I didn’t run into you, I think you’re so pretty! :)

    Thank you for all your recipes, workouts, and helpful tips on being a new wife,
    Here’s to another fabulous year of Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life!

  77. Nellie says

    1. One restaurant you visited in the past 3 months is Bombers Burrito Bar, that burrito looked soo good! I got a huge burrito craving after reading that post and made my boyfriend take me to a local Mexican restaurant the next day for lunch. He was shocked since I’m not a huge fan of Mexican food. He’s a fan of it though, so he happily obliged. He may write you a thank you note =-)

    My favorite Cody feature was on February 16. I LOVED the adorable kitten photos of him and then the picture of him asleep with his jug tie… it was so sweet! I have always been a dog person and even though I have not ever met Cody, everytime he is featured on one of your posts I want to cuddle with him and go out and by a cat! Please keep sharing pictures of your furry child, he is just too sweet and handsome for words 😀

  79. Nellie says

    3. A post that has Cody in it was on April 8, 2011, he wasn’t speaking to you back then. I’m glad you two are back on speaking terms! More Cody pics please!

    Hey, Courtney! I love your blog, I read it everyday, first thing in the morning, and it’s the last thing I read before I go to bed. Love, love, love it!

    1. You went to J Watt’s Barista House for a coffee date on February 22, 2011! I love coffee, so this little trip made me jealous! I’m dying to find a local coffee shop in my area!

    2. You went on Amherst, Massachusetts on March 27th. So jealous because you went to Trader Joe’s! Again, I wish there was a fabulous grocery store like that in my town. I’m limited to Wal-Mart…

    3. There are adorable kitten pictures of Cody in the post from April 15, 2010. This is the story of how you and Jay acquired Cody. Can I just say….HOW ADORABLE?!?

  100. says

    1. Lanie’s Café
    2. St. Lucia
    3. April 8, 2011, I hate when they’re stinkers and won’t come out from under the bed! I find a laser pointer works every time.

  101. Alison says

    1. Bombers (Burrito Bar). I know this is a relatively recent visit, and therefore maybe not so creative, but this is one of my favorite places to eat in Albany, and since I no longer live in the area, your post really made me miss it…and develop a major craving for rasta fries!

    2. I didn’t know if you meant year as in ‘last 365 days,’ or as in ‘2010,’ so if it is the former, then Las Vegas, and if it is the latter, St. Lucia.

    3. March 23rd, 2011. My cats also love to ‘help’ in the kitchen!

  102. Alison says

    I also tweeted about this lovely giveaway (although I really don’t want any extra entries!) @alisonjane0306

  103. Caitlin says

    You went to the Amherst Brewing Company on March 26. My mouth absolutely watered reading about that honey pilsner and those sweet potato fries :)

  104. Tori says

    1) Testo’s (looks deeeeelish)
    2) The windy city, aka Chicago for your first visit (the corner bakery cafe also looked delish!)
    3) March 31st, 2011 (such a cute upclose & personal picture!)

    Love your blog! : )

  105. Lauren says
