Give it Away Give it Away Give it Away Now!

(Sing to the tune of Red Hot Chili Peppers and perhaps start a mosh pit in your living room)

Before I get to the contest, I want to share my treat of the day.  Before I do, I have to clarify that it's one sweet treat since I'm trying to reel in my sugar monster- savory treats (bleh!) and fruit don't count- only dessert!

Today's Snack: 1/2 cup frozen blueberries topped with plain yogurt icing and a homemade brownie on top; my own sundae!
Worth It Factor: 10!  This was a perfect portion and I knew exactly what was in it because I made it!


Giveaway Time!!
When I tried chia seeds for the first time earlier this week, I instantly fell in love.  I was excited when Don from chiaseedsdirect.com offered to give one of my fabulous readers a 2 pound bag of chia seeds!  You guys are the best and I appreciate your comments and every time you stop by.  Also, I wanted to give you a present to celebrate my birfday!

I was just talking about 90s songs with my best friend yesterday- she is obsessed with songs from that decade! One of my first memories of our friendship (I moved in across the street from her in sixth grade) is listening/dancing along to her Ace of Base tape (ha!) in her room. So I'll say "I saw the sign". :)

Alannis Morisette - You Oughta Know (1995). Good stuff! I'm definitely a bigger fan of later 90's though.

I haven't been able to find chia seeds anywhere, and as a yogurt/oatmeal FREAK this makes me so sad.

-I tweeted, twitter.com/nkh3
-I added you to my blog roll: http://www.LiveLifeEatRight.wordpress.com
-I am in the process of writing a new entry which your give away will be mentioned (I'll respond back)

As for the song. I'm still addicted to 90's music. You will find spice girls and "Baby Got Back" on my ipod to this day...I just LOVE to dance. I think the most defining song for me (embarrassingly enough) is Tubthumper by Chumbawumba(spelling?). I remember begging my parents to get the CD and being so shocked by the non-edited lyrics haha. Those were the days.

Also, I'll be doing a Greek yogurt giveaway starting March 1 so be sure to check out my blog for details!

Ok no shame admitting this: it was MmmBop by Hanson. I was crazy about them for a while there. Taylor of course being my favorite!

Ashley said...

I was obsessed with *NSYNC in the 90s so I would have to go with "God Must Have Spent Alittle More Time on You." (I think this may be the longest song title ever).
