Fun Facts Friday & A Fun Giveaway {CLOSED}

by Courtney on May 24, 2013

1. WOO HOO for Friday! I feel like this week totally flew by…anyone else? I’m super pumped for our three-day holiday weekend.

2. Last night I had the motivation to bake so I decided to bake not one, but TWO batches of Love Blondies. Funny story though…I actually wound up having to bake FOUR batches…

IMG_2284

I totally misread the ingredients on my first two batches and they came out just awful (can I pull the pregnancy brain card here?)There was no salvaging them at ALL, and it kills me when that happens…that was four cups of perfectly good Love Grown granola into the trash. Thankfully the next two batches came out great – one with raisin almond granola + raisins, the other with plain granola and dark chocolate. Hopefully my co-workers enjoy them today. ;)

3. Do you guys remember how obsessed I was with the Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter last year?

So for a while it was just a Whole Foods specialty, but did you know that they now sell it at iHerb?? It’s been out of stock for weeks but I just checked this morning and it’s BACK!

If you want in on the good stuff, CLICK HERE, and be sure to use my coupon code SAZ564…now through May 31st, everyone receives 10% off orders of $60.00 and up — or 5% off smaller orders. I’ll be doing some shopping later myself.

4. Salads and sandwiches with Applegate turkey slices have been rocking my lunches this week. Yesterday’s salad was probably my favorite all week.

IMG_2274

5. I’m pretty sure you’ve now all convinced me that I most definitely need to invest in a rice cooker. I checked them out a bit at Target yesterday and found one for around $40…although if you guys tell me the cheapies are just as good, then I’m gonna keep looking!

6. My husband makes a pretty mean guacamole. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…I am LUCKY.

IMG_2277

7. Baby Tooth’s punches and kicks are getting more and more powerful by the day. The other morning before I got out of bed, he actually gave me a nice, swift kick to the ribs that absolutely made me flinch. Good to know he’s a strong little guy in there. ;)

8. Want to know what I’ve been enjoying almost daily this past week? Italian ice. Specifically, watermelon flavor. Can’t. Get. Enough.

IMG_2281

9. Codester was looking too cute last night all curled up in his little ball. Just had to share.

IMG_2287

10. Late last week, I received a fun package in the mail from Odwalla.

IMG_0210

and I’ve been enjoying the goods ever since. I’ve long been a fan of their bars but I usually forget about them since I don’t always pass that aisle in the grocery store.

IMG_2263IMG_2264

But anywho; the company is currently working on a really neat campaign…

“Since 2008, Odwalla has donated $550,000 worth of trees through its Plant-A-Tree initiative. New for this year, Odwalla has teamed up with The Nature Conservancy’s All Hands on Earth campaign to plant up to 100,000 trees in 2013. 

To celebrate the Plant-A-Tree initiative, now through the end of May, fans can create their own virtual Odwalla tree and be eligible to take home a $10,000 gift card and a year’s worth of Odwalla beverages and bars. Plus, each fan who registers and creates their tree will receive an Odwalla coupon and the opportunity to share one with a friend.”

To raise awareness for the program, Odwalla has offered to give away a Goodness Package (like the one above) filled with bars, coupons, a t-shirt, tote bag and sunglasses. 

 IMG_0212

For a chance to win a Goodness Package for yourself, leave a comment on this post telling me how you like to spread some “goodness” of your own. Or just tell me something you’re happy about on this fantastic Friday. :)

(Open to US residents only)

I’ll choose a winner on Monday, May 27th (Memorial Day). Good Luck and Happy FRIDAY!

Whenever I’m in the Starbucks drive-thru I always pay for the person’s coffee behind me. Rarely is the bill more than $5, and it’s such a small thing I can do to put some extra pep in someone’s step! They obviously need it if they’re in the Starbucks line!

I like to spread goodness through food… I recently found out that a friend of mine is sick and will need surgery and therapy, so I’ve been brainstorming some foods to stock her up with. So funny, because one of the things I was planning on bringing were Odwalla juices! They’re a little more pricey than I would normally want to spend, and I don’t drink a ton of juice in general, but I think they’re kind of a nice luxury item for someone not feeling well.

I just found the blog world and I love all the healthy recipes and special splurge goodies that get shared as well as strong women like you making a difference by letting people know they can still be healthy and pregnant! Thanks for that! :)
I’m pretty happy it’s memorial day and at 4:30 I will be headed to the beach! Tomorrow a group of friends are running in The Color Run 5k in Orange Beach, AL! A long weekend full of family, fun, friends, seafood, exercise and lots of ice cream!! What’s not to be happy about??

Definitely too blessed to be stressed! God is WONDERFUL!

You’re eats look so good by the way! I’ve actually never tried Odwalla, but I love their new campaign!

I’d spread some goodness by trying to do one extra nice and considerate thing for a stranger, whether that be as simple as helping them open a door or complimenting them on something I like when I usually just admire from a far!

And awww Cody has a special place in my heart. He remind me of my cat, Kiki. She always manages to find the cutest sleeping positions. I think it’s the paw tucked over face thing that really gets ya ;)

I spread the love by donating blood every 8 weeks, as allowed by our local blood bank. In addition to that, I volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, building houses, and I’ve been looking for more volunteer opportunities recently. I want to be a good example to my daughters of the kind of person I want them to grow up to be like.

I am happy and most thankful for the life I have been given and for my family and friends. When I look around and see what disasters and trauma families are facing I am grateful even more so for what I have. Pay it forward as always been something my family instilled in me and I think it is one way to keep that spirit going every day just to make someone else’s day brighter!!

i always try to find ways to spread goodness and I really think the easiest way to do that is just being a GOOD person. sounds simple, but i really feel like small, polite gestures is really lacking in most people. for example, i just started a new job and one of our receptionists i overheard is having some financial problems. there is something called market on the move where you pay a donation and get masses amounts of produce. she was saying she loves to can tomatoes so i just offered to pick her up some when i went to the market. i actually had no intentions of going, but i know it will help her out. do i even know her that well? no. but it doesn’t matter, i love helping others out when i can. again, it’s the small things and i know she will appreciate it.

Also, I love to spread goodness by raising Diabetes Awareness, participating in runs for charity, being a leader in my school, and just giving smiles wherever I go (:

Yesterday was law school graduation for a ton of my close friends so I spread goodness by getting them all cute little lolita wine glasses painted to say congrats. Now I am so happy b/c I get to down to NC for memorial day weekend to spend time with friends and family! Perfect way to spread cheer, good food, good drinks, and good times :-)

I’m especially excited for this long weekend for plenty of awesome reasons – it’s my birthday, I’m running my 3rd half marathon tomorrow morning, and some of our family is coming to visit! Birthday cake at the end of the race should be a great motivator : )

One of my favorite ways to spread goodness is by baking treats for family, friends, and coworkers! There is just something about a homemade goodie that can brighten even the most gloomy day! :)

I’m excited to spread some goodness next weekend … I teach Jazzercise, and I am going to be sharing info on Jazzercise with women at a Weight Watchers active event. I’m excited to share a workout that I love with people who are trying to lose weight … especially since I can speak from experience. I recently lost 35 pounds! :)

I am so thankful that I am able to see my entire family for this long weekend. I love the Odwalla bars that I have tried, but am interested in checking out some of the other flavors!

Reply

256 Joy May 26, 2013 at 6:28 am

I’m not sure if this counts as me spreading the goodness but since he’s my dog AND I drive and go with him I’ll say that taking Dobby my poodle to nursing homes and hospitals as a therapy dog is how I spread the love.

257 Terrie May 26, 2013 at 8:08 am

I love the Odwalla drinks but I never knew they made bars too! I’d love to try one!

Fantastic Friday it was! My work started Summer Hours this week, which means it’s OK to leave at 1 PM on Fridays. When I left my desk at 1:30, the parking lot was mostly empty! Yay for a few more hours of the weekend!

I spread the goodness by walking our neighbor’s dog this weekend. I love Odwalla so much! The drinks are amaaazing.

Hey Courtney!!

I like to spread goodness everyday by simply being kind to people, with words, my attitude, and smiles. I also love writing and promoting other positive blog posts on social media to spread that positivity and love..posts about yoga, healthy lifestyles, and growing spirituality.

Thanks for this opportunity! Happy weekend :)
