back to school giveaway

by jenna on August 15, 2011

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!

The best thing about my day today is that I have absolutely nothing I have to get done today! It’s been amazing. I got up, worked out, ate breakfast, decided to go sit outside and read on my back porch because although our temps have been triple digits for weeks, this week it feels glorious outside, took a leisurely shower, made a salad the size of my cranium for lunch, watched some trashy TV, and now I’m reading blogs. 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!
Hope you are having a good day too!

Well, it’s not good, but it’s funny :) 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 :) Puppy kisses = good.

Today was the first day for new teachers at my school. I am a mentor to a new teacher this year. We had a great day! I even took her “shopping” for office supplies in the district’s stock pile. We are going to have a great year working together since she is teaching three sections of a class and I have one section of the same class.

Oh love this!! I could by a stack of lovely books – loved used books on Amazon!!

Well, I met with my trainer today (good thing one) and my insanely tight right hip is starting to loosen up (good thing two). Finally!

Today had so many good things. I started week 4 of the Couch to 5k program and though I was intimidated by bumping my running intervals up to 5 minutes..I did it! Then I met a friend that I hadn’t seen in a year and a half and we spent a good hour catching up and laughing hysterically. Good friends are the ones you can see after FOREVER and just be comfortable with like you’d seen each other yesterday. THEN I went to the Borders liquidation sale and treated myself to something (haven’t spent any of my money on anything other than gas and groceries in forever!). THEN I came home to the new issue of Whole Living and made roasted squash, potatoes, and tomatoes with parmesan with my beautiful mamma. I also got one of my text books in that was written by my favorite Anthropology professor. Now, I’m going to make even more of this perfect Georgia day by tilling my garden and getting ready to plant Fall crops!

Kinda neat to tell a complete stranger about my day! :)

Actually, school started today for me–I’m an eighth grade teacher. This is my first year, and today was the best first day back I’ve had so far. It started with a beautiful, 70-degree run this morning, where I saw a shooting star. How’s that for a good sign?

Today I found an alternative to Soy Sauce called Coconut Aminos at the health food store. I’m soy-free, and gluten-free, and boy o boy was I excited to see this! And let me tell you, it’s SO.GOOD.

And it’s sunny outside, not too hot.

What can be better?!
