Giveaways

back to school giveaway

Hey, guess what??

School starts, like, next week. Does that give me an excuse to do back-to-school shopping? Even though I haven’t actually been in school for four years now? I thought so, too.

Today I’m giving away two $25 Amazon.com gift cards to get us all in the spirit! Buy a new book with it…or a million mp3s. If you’re looking for something good to read, may I humbly suggest this? I finished it two months ago but it’s still on my mind…

This giveaway is sponsored by me, myself and I! Because I love you. And because I’m super thankful that each of you tune into ELR every single day to expand your minds with my latest culinary creation, no matter how weird it may be. I’ll pick two random winners tomorrow evening at 10 pm PST. To enter, just leave a comment on this post telling me something good about your day!

Ready…set…GO!

I’ve made dinner plans with friends, and this is a much needed ME day! Yay!

    i woke up 45 minutes late and still managed to make it only 5 minutes late to spin class (which i was teaching!) i called ahead and told the gym manager I was on my way, and the class stayed and warmed up on their own until i got there. It was such a great 6;30am Monday spin class! As soon as I walked in, we took it up a notch! I was so panicked on the way to the gym and having all of these negative thoughts about how the day/week was starting off badly…but once I got there, I realized that I need to calm down and these things happen….and so far, I’ve had a great rest of the day!

I exercise daily because of her. She still walks 2 to 3 miles everyday (at 92!!) and starts every day with stretching and strength exercises. She is truly amazing.

    I rode my bike up and down the hills of northern Georgia for 50 miles today…and I didn’t look at my speedometer or judge myself once for being “slow” (something that’s difficult for me to accomplish). “Move your body without judging it” is an amazing lesson I’m currently learning.

    Well, it’s not good, but it’s funny πŸ™‚ Hubby and I got home yesterday from camping for the 1st time with our new puppy and both desperately wanted sleep. Well, in the middle of the night the puppy, Lando, chewed through the lamp chord under the bed and made some pained noises. I dropped to the floor to look for him. I couldn’t see him so I shot my head up. Little did I know Hubby was leaning over my side of the bed, looking down. I ended up hitting his forehead, just over his right eye, with the top of my head. Hard. After a few moments of pained curses, Lando jumped on the bed and licked our sore heads as if the apologize for causing the crazy. We managed to get back to sleep with Lando at our feet πŸ™‚ Puppy kisses = good.

    My today was great because of lunch!! I am a teacher (we have open house tonight and start on WEDNESDAY…ohhhh no!!) πŸ™‚ I made some of your bf approved (hubby, too!) black bean burgers and got to bring one for lunch… took my mind off some of the before- school jitters (yep, still have em!) However, I’m very excited to start the year off (and with a new name, too! yay for marriage!) with my new kiddos! And sooo incredibly excited that my meat and potatoes hubby loves your black bean burgers!

I already borrowed my first book and I believe you recommended it- Gap Creek. Loving it so far and loving this beautiful weather we are having in Mississippi! Happy monday!

    I’ll give you three great things about my day:

    1) I started reading your blog and immediately subscribed via RSS.
    2) I had a great breakfast and lunch of healthy, home cooked meals and a great bike ride to and from work.
    3) I came home from work to flowers and a present wrapped up from my boyfriend for the start of “birthday week”. πŸ™‚

    Hope you had an equally amazing day. I’m so happy I found your blog — love it!

    I spent quality time with my daughter Zoe. We are missing my son, Emmet who is at his first overnight camp for the whole week. To help us get over our sadness we went swimming and then made Orange and Nut Bars. Nothing like a little exercise and baking to get you through the day.

    Today was actually my first day of work at MIT, it went a little like this:

    When I got off the subway to go to my lab, I found a vegetarian food truck (I’m a veg!) and ordered a soft boiled egg and heirloom tomato breakfast pita. I walked across the street to the campus and then something amazing happened: I looked out at the grassy lawn, pita in hand, and had that unmistakable feeling that this is where I’m meant to be.
