Summer Solstice Gift Pack Giveaway {CLOSED}

by Courtney on June 28, 2012

SOMEbody is a little bit whacky this morning…

This guy. I’ll tell ya…talk about some great, free entertainment. He has been in rare form so far today, as evidenced by our bath mats crumpled in a ball out in the living room floor when I first woke up. I swear, one of these days we’re going to set up a night-cam just to see what really goes down while we’re sleeping.

Breakfast

Apparently Tuesday night’s dinner was good enough for a repeat.

All of the berries we have right now are just SO, so good and I just love bulking up my cereal bowls with ‘em. Jay, on the other hand, hates the thought of putting anything other than cereal and milk in his cereal bowls.

I say he’s crazy. Winking smile

Alright, so I promised you all last night that there would be so more fun giveaways headed your way…and I’ve got a good one up for grabs today!

Summer Solstice Gift Pack Giveaway

Summer is the time of year where we take a moment to step outside and enjoy all of the natural warmth and joy that the sun can bring.

Sunlight is necessary for us to produce Vitamin D, but even with long summer days, the National Center for Health Statistics reveals that nearly one third of the population is still at risk for low Vitamin D levels. Because of increased time indoors and use of sunscreen to protect us from sun exposure, our bodies might not make adequate amounts of Vitamin D, which is critical for teeth, bone and immune health.

This summer represents *new beginnings* for me. My life has changed so much this year already (for the better). I plan on taking this summer to have fun, let go and take care of myself! Because in the end you only have yourself. Stay present in the moment. Don’t worry about the future too much or hold on to the past!

I am going to have some fun in the sun this weekend running a 5K with my mom! It is her FIRST ever 5K, and I am so proud of her! She has always been active, and likes to walk and bike with our dog (and I even remember her doing Jane Fonda aerobics in neon leotards and bike shorts in our basement while I was growing up, but don’t tell her I said that on the Internet!), but she has always said she could never be a runner. This past year, she started running, and at first could only go about 50-100 steps before she would walk, and then repeat that–and now she can run over three miles! It’s going to be HOT here in MN, so we will be sure to drink up and use our suncreen, but most importantly have fun being active together!!

This summer, I am enjoying the sunshine by doing yard work each day, got to take care of our green yard. My husband really wants to make sure “our green” is the “best green”.

I am going to Alabama to spend the 4th in the sun at the park with the in-laws. Then I am off to New York to go to central park with my sis and mom. We will be in the sunshine for sure!!!

Then I will be back at the pool before I go back to work, teaching awesome Kindergarten.

Playing with the kids, long bike rides by the river, picnics at the lake! I plan on soaking up as much of this sunshine as I can!

I am going to have fun by going to the beach and jet skiing my arse off! I haven’t been to the beach yet and this goodie bag would be a perfect accessory to accompany me :)

Sadly I dont have any vacations planned… so the only way I’m taking in the sun is through running outside with my dog!
