Is everyone enjoying the weekend?  I had a nice low-key night in on Friday, a TON of fun hosting Jen’s good-bye party last night (more on this later!), and am now trying to be productive before heading to Tim’s for his Super Bowl festivities.  If you missed it, make sure to click over to this post and read all my tips on keeping tonight’s game watching somewhat healthy!

You know what’s really exciting?

In the past 2 months I have been the lucky winner of FOUR blog related giveaways.  Do you guys think I should play the lottery?  I’m on a winning streak!

I thought it might be nice to give a little thank you and shout out to the sites that ran these giveaways!

Around The Plate

You guys might remember me announcing that I was asked to join the Around the Plate community as a Recipe Guru.  If you haven’t ventured over to this site before, please do!  It’s wonderful.  Anyways, Kati (otherwise known as “The Girl Behind the Plate”) ran seven straight days of Healthy & Happy New Year’s Giveaways.  I entered every single contest, and I won the prize I wanted most!  Two “Simple Mantra” tees from a company called Words to Sweat By.

How cute are these?!

I love them!  You should definitely go check out their other products by clicking over to this link.  Love apparel that promotes a healthy lifestyle!

Big thanks to everyone at Around the Plate and Words to Sweat By who made this win possible!

Creative Soul in Motion

In December, Erin over at Creative Soul in Motion (same girl who guest blogged for me on Monday!) wrote a fantastic blog post on the benefits of sparkling/seltzer water.  She offered coupons for Poland Springs in a giveaway at the end of the post, and I won!  You guys know how much I love coupons…. score!  You rock, Erin!

Live Run Love Yoga

This one was SO exciting.  My blog friend Whitney over at LiveRunLoveYoga (remember her guest post on ways to make running fun?!) is running the Boston Marathon in April for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and was lucky to have several companies and people donate some sweet prizes to raffle off as part of her fundraising initiatives.  I donated $20 to Whitney’s cause because I wanted to support her, NOT because of the sweet prize packages.  And I won.  Amazing.  What did I win?


Ahhh!  Thank you, Whitney!

Salt, Sun, and Sanity

Lindsay is a new Fitness & Feta follower, so of course when I found that out I added Salt, Sun, and Sanity to my Google Reader.  A few weeks ago Lindsay was offering a giveaway for Melissa’s organic Garden Herb Croutons.  I don’t even LOVE croutons, but I am now addicted to entering every possible contest I can.  So I entered.  And I won.  Something to share with the boyfriend and roommates!  Thanks, Lindsay 🙂

Trading Up Downtown

This win was a little embarrassing.  Tina over at Trading Up Downtown (and same author of Carrots N Cake) was offering up two bags of pistachios as part of a giveaway in December.  I didn’t think I had even a shot at winning (Tina gets so many followers on both of her sites), so I left the dorkiest comment of all time.  Of course it’s when I write something AWKWARD for the world to see that I win!

“I love nuts (ha!) but unsalted cashews are my favorite. Pistachios and almonds are a close 2nd and third!!”

Perfect.  Thanks, Tina!

Do you guys enter a lot of blog giveaways?  Have you ever won anything?
