Hey guys! I am so excited for today because....it's a giveaway!! My first, to be exact. I just want to show how grateful I am to all of you for following me on this ride. This is my little way of celebrating and giving back!  Today I'm happy that my Facebook followers reached over 100, that my blog got an adorable makeover, and that I have had the opportunity to meet so many awesome people through this blog. I put together a grab bag of a few of my favorite healthy living things for you to try! I am not compensated or affiliated with any of these brands (except Sweat Pink, and they definitely don't have to ask me to promote them and how awesome they are!), these are all just things that I use daily (hello lemon slices in my water bottle!) or eat frequently and genuinely love! I am giving away....

You have three ways to enter! Like me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, or leave a comment below telling me how you're showing your gratefulness today! Maybe this morning at Starbucks you bought coffee for the car behind you. Maybe you wrote your spouse/SO a love note telling them how much you appreciate them and left it in the kitchen when you went to work (I may or may not do that a couple times a week....). Perhaps you thanked your boss for how hard they work. Tell me any and every way you showed thankfulness today :)

The giveaway will stay open until Friday morning at 12 a.m. So you have all day today, Wednesday, and Thursday to enter!! Good luck and thanks again to all of you for supporting me :)


  1. Today is my Mother's birthday so we are showing our gratefulness to her by taking her to dinner and making sure she has the best birthday yet!

  2. As shallow as it is, I'm grateful to finally find the perfect nude lipstick.

    1. Not shallow at all...that is such a tough task!

  3. I love the idea of an infuser water bottle! Your treats look very yum! :)

  4. It's easy to relax once you're done with your work assignments and enjoy that your plate is empty for the time-being. Once I was done with my projects for the day, instead of clocking out early, I checked in with my coworker to see if there was anything I could help her with (there was). With my help, she was able to clear her plate and check out early too.

  5. I went to Starbucks this morning and got an extra coffee for the homeless man who camps out at the door.

  6. Well since midterms are taking over my life right now, it can be hard to find time to even leave the books! But once you do it feels SOOO GOOD! So like I did today, once I got my head out of my books I went down to my pantry, got out a bunch of canned food and delivered it down to the foodbank!!! :) It was great to see the smiles on there faces when I brought the box of food! Nothing better then helping out people in need :)

    I also put my mom through a killer workout, and joined her as well! Can never let your mom train alone! Encouragement, determination and a great mother/daughter partnership made it the best workout ever! :) love you mom!

  7. I think I will show my gratefulness today by not complaining no matter what happens! It is really hard not to complain sometimes but if you think about it, no matter what happens you are still better off than someone else out there.

  8. I showed my gratefulness to my superintendent by taking time out of my lunch break to pick up one of his favorite lunches- a quarter pounder with cheese (no he does not read this blog haha!). But I am also grateful for your awesome blog and an awesome big sister! PS the blog makeover is awesome, love you!

  9. Yay for 100 followers! You're basically famous!!
    Today I exercised gratefulness for my body by taking a nap instead of working out -rest is important!

  10. I thanked God at the grocery store for providing me enough money for groceries today! (A typical broke college student prayer ;] )
