Thank you for reading, for contributing, for offering support, for caring about my family and becoming my… wait for the cheese factor…. friends. This blog has become a big part of my life and I owe it to you guys. So thank you. And what better way to say thanks than with a giveaway??

The companies listed here today are so generous that I wasn’t sure exactly how to give all these fabulous prizes away. Stretch it out over a few days or weeks? Nah, I decided GO BIG OR GO HOME, so ONE of you guys will win ALL of these wonderful prizes…. ready?

    This is an awesome giveaway, I think I would actually be willing to hop on my left foot in three circles around the mailbox at 3:00am while chanting Let it Snow, backwards, in my underwear if it would mean I win! You do have a great blog though, I’m a new momma to an 8 week old girl and I have really enjoyed going back to your older posts about Hailey, it’s nice to hear about what other people have experienced since I don’t have many friends with babies.

  21. Amanda says

    Love it. Go big or go home. Fantastic giveaway. The little one will love hopping around and singing Let It Snow. Why not give it a go?

  33. Hanna W says

  36. Stefanie says

    I love your go big or go home style! And your original how to win requirements made a sick girl laugh (stupid head cold make me feel like I have my head stuck in a fish bowl) so thanks for that!

  37. Jessica says

    What a great giveaway! I live in Charlotte and am expecting a baby boy (my first) in February! I absolutely loved reading all of your pregnancy posts and keeping up with adorable Hailey!

  38. Melanie says

    This give-away is amazing and quite generous! I would like to try those almonds and I love a good cup of tea in the winter : ) Also have been dying to try some LoveGrown granola. Happy holidays!

  39. Olivia says

    This is such a generous and wonderful giveaway! I love reading your Blog and am inspired by how you live a healthy life. During the holiday season it is so important to give back and “pay it forward”. I recently heard of a new trend where a person in a Starbucks drivethru line paid for the order in the car behind them so when that person drove up to the window their order was already paid for. Such a small gesture that can make someone’s day.

  40. Belinda says

    Love reading your blog every day. You always make me smile. Terrific holiday giveaway. Merry Christmas to you and your cute little family.

  41. Lauren S says

    Your blog is one I look forward to reading everyday! I am pregnant with my first baby and have enjoyed reading about your experience with pregnancy and Hailey’s first year!

    Merry Christmas:)

    Wow! Great stuff! I am a Love Grown addict!! And I love your blog! I have been reading since my daughter was about 3 months and she is now 11 months! I love reading your blogs about Hailey and your motherhood journey! It gives me a heads up on what might be happening in our lives on the road ahead! Thank You and Merry Christmas!

  43. Lynn Hammock says

    it makes my day each morning to read your blog and I feel like I’ve know you and your family. Plus I live in Athens and am a bulldog fan, so you know us dawg fans are always in good company!
    God Bless and Happy Holidays!

  44. Holly Marie says

    I could’ve been that crazy lady outside rounding the mailbox last night- the hubs caught the stomach bug from me and I was up anyway : )
    Love reading about your sweet family!

  45. Corinne says

    What a great giveaway! Thanks for having it! Thank you for your wonderful blog, I just love it! Happy Holidays to you and your family.

  46. says

    That gift wrap is genius. Though I wonder…would it be okay to ask the recipient to give it back to you after they open their gift? 😉

  47. Kathryn says

    Such cool stuff! And thank you to you for providing me with some warmth and friendliness everyday :)

  48. Rebecca says

    Wow, you weren’t kidding, this is a huge giveaway! And I’d love to win! :-) P.S. LOVE looking at all your pictures-I don’t think Hailey could be any cuter!!

  49. Stephanie says

    Wow what a blessing this gift will be to someone- it all looks amazing!! Thank you for being such a great blogger and connecting with your readers!

  50. AmyG says

    I think I’d have to share the almonds with my 17 year old daughter. I am thinking it would be fun to buy some for her Christmas Stocking, she loves anything spicy.

  51. says

    I’m pretty sure I’d actually go outside and hop backwards around my mailbox while singing if that’s what was required to win all this stuff :) I still, yes still, haven’t gotten to try any Love Grown Products…reeeally crossing my fingers this changes that!!

    Oh my gosh!!! This is such a fabulous give away, thank you!!!
    I read your blog every day and alway enjoy it…..happy holidays to you and your family:)

  53. Chrissie says

    What a wonderful giveaway!! I just love your blog. I have an almost 14 month old son so its nice to see how other parents of small children go about meal planning, playing, etc. Thanks for such a great blog!

  54. Claire says

    What an awesome giveaway! Tis’ the season! Thanks for posting so many great recipes this year!

  55. KRISTEN'S MOM says

    I love your blog, Brittany! It’s one of the few that I read every day. I love hearing about sweet Hailey!

  56. Dorothy says

    Awesome! I’d love to win! I already bought some of the almonds for my husband who’s favorite are the Wasabi Soy Sauce (but I also bought the Buffalo for me to try) :)

  57. Dana says

    You say thank you for reading. I say thank you for writing. As a mom of a three month old, it’s nice to read about someone a year ahead – so much to look forward to!

  58. Lindsey says

    Great giveaway!! I would love any/all of these products. I have never heard of lilywrap before – what a great idea!

  59. jodie says

    No wonder you were so excited!! Wow!! Almonds, tea, Love Grown, oils, etc…this would be my favorite gift of the season by far:)

  60. Britt says

    If I won all this stuff, I might just do some underwear laps around my mailbox out of excitement!

  61. Carolyn says

    I have really loved reading your blog over the past year or so – I have a 9-month-old and your updates on Hailey have helped me eagerly anticipate the next developments of my own little girl! This is a wonderful giveaway!! Happy holidays!

  62. Sheila says

    This is gourmet food/goodie heaven! What a great way to start the year off – I’d love to share some of these with friends & family!

  63. Devan says

    Brittany, you are so nice! I’m definitely not coordinated enough to hop in circles around my mailbox so thank you for giving all of us the opportunity to comment and tell you how awesome you and your blog are! Your giveaway is definitely putting me in the holiday spirit- so much so that I’d probably invite my friends to enjoy the giveaway swag, too :) PS Glad operation skinny pup is going well!

  64. erin says

    On the love train with everyone else…. Awesome give-away. It’s amazing how I would never have anticipated the amount of excitement I get from almonds and tea, not to mention all of the other goodies included. Mommyhood certainly changes things. :) thank you!

  65. Jenn says

    What a great giveaway! I love your blog, you’re my first stop in the mornings while drinking my cup of coffee.

  66. Jordan says

    I love every single item in this giveaway! Some are tried and true favorites, some are new-to-me products I’ve been wanting to try. Thanks for the super generous giveaway!

  67. Becky says

    This is when you REALLY get to see how many hits/people are visiting your blog everyday :) Everyone can take some time out to comment!

    Check in w/ the blog every day. our kiddos are just months apart and it’s nice to have an ‘internet friend’ going through ALL the same stuff as us.

    Keep up the great work here!

  68. Ann says

    I DEFINITELY would have done the first option but I’m not on twitter, so I’ll leave a comment instead:) Thanks for hosting the giveaway! Those all look like awesome products but I am especially excited to hear about lilywrap – after years of slowing down my families’ Christmasses by delicately unwrapping presents in order to save the paper for reuse, I’ve been looking for something that will be reusable, look nice, and improve my reputation. Very cool!

  69. Ashleigh V says

    AAAHHHH! This looks amazing! I think its the biggest giveaway I’ve ever seen from one blog before :)

  70. Stacy K says

    Awesome giveaway!!! I’ve been wanting to try a lot of those products, especially the almonds. I love your blog and now that I’m a new mom I refer to it so much!

  71. Jesse J says

    I’d love to win these for my fiance – She’s a real foodie (and gluten free) This would be the perfect surprise for her!

  72. Lauren B. says

    I wish I could give YOU presents to thank you for brightening my every day with your blog!

    And I’m not just saying that so you’ll pick me…

  73. Allie says

    What a great giveaway! I didn’t know that Shabby Apple had a maternity line…heading over to their website to check it out!

  74. Sara says

    BEST GIVEAWAY EVER…wishing you continued blog success and a happy and healthy holiday season!

  75. Beth says

    Haven’t tried any of these yet! Thanks for all your blogging entertainment. I have an 8 month old and it’s fun to get a glimpse in the future :)

  76. Sherry says

    I should have read all the way to the end of your blog. If I had then I wouldn’t have had to set my alarm to get up at 2:55 a.m. And my neighbors would not wonder why I was out hopping around the mailbox!

  77. Jennifer P. says

    This is amazing!! I would give most of that stuff as gifts and wrap it in that cute wrapping! Please choose me!!

  78. Jane says

    WOW…this giveaway is huge! What a really generous package you have put together! I am super impressed, and I love it that there is such varied products.

  79. Martha Matthews says

  80. Mazie Lynn says

    I found your blog because of a recipe, and have kept reading because it is an encouragement to me. Thank you!

  81. Brittany says

    That eco wrap would make my life SO much easier! My daughter is 6 mos old and I’m realizing kid’s pressies are HARD. TO. WRAP! 😉

  82. Karen says

    Oh, I would love to win this as I am a HUGE tea fan. I had emergency surgery on Monday so I have been drinking lots of herbal tea and have one more tea bag left so this whole package would come in handy. Awesome, awesome giveaway!! Happy Holidays!!

  83. says

    Thank you for offering this great giveaway! Best wishes to all of you during this Christmas season and good luck to us all for winning this great giveaway. :)

  84. Mary Ann says

    Wow! This is a pretty amazing giveaway! I have been a follower on facebook for quite some time so I will be sure to share your page and follow on Pinterest as well.

  85. Lauren says

    What a great giveaway. Happy Holidays! I really want the Love Grown Granola especially because it isn’t sold anywhere near me!

  86. Caleigh Rathmell says

    What a cool giveaway!! Brittany, I’m a friend of Cara and Kris’s and I’ve loved following your blog for the past few months. I wish I had the time and motivation to follow through with my own website. It especially impresses me that you are able to get the donations and sponsorships! Keep up the good work–you’re setting a great example in many areas of life!

  87. Elizabeth says

    My mom introduced me to this blog and I absolutely love it! You’re such an inspiration for healthy lliving while still having such a busy life! Thanks!

  88. Jeffrey says

    I can’t get enough of Love Grown Granola. I have a funny feeling they add a secret ingredient that causes such an addiction. One of the biggest problems is being able to reseal the bag once its opened and not because the aforementioned is broken but the simple fact that I can’t stop piling it down my gullet! I firmly believe, and I know others do also, that the integrated seal is a waste of production money and resources because of the reason above. It used to upset me that my local grocer didn’t stock Cocoa Goodness but now I am thankful, its for my own good! Thanks for the giveaway, hope I win and if not, congrats to the lucky person that does!!

  89. Cari says

    wow! this is a ginormous giveaway! after hearing so many rave about love grown, i’d really like to try it!!

  90. Brandy says

    What an AMAZING giveaway! Perfect snacks for holiday traveling (complete with stickers and notebook for when the trip gets boring) and then some tea for the therapy required after said holiday traveling has been survived with 2 toddlers!! Then, my hubby can cook with the olive oil while I shop for some jewelry as my reward for both kids having birthdays and Christmas and long distance traveling in 1 month!! Whoop!

  91. olivia tokarz says

    Wow! This looks like the best giveaway ever!!! If I win I promise to share with family and friends! I would use and love all of these things and so would my friends! :)

  92. Holly says

    Thanks so much for all you write about here on your blog. I would love to win your giveaway as well!

  93. Alexandra says

    OMG what an amazing giveaway!! All of these prizes sound fabulous! Thank you for your generosity!

  94. Ashley says

    Wow – what a great giveaway! I’d love to win and share with my family.

    By the way, I rarely comment but love reading your blog and Hailey is adorable!

  95. Peggy says

    I am probably most excited about the possibility of winning the lillywrap – I am awful with scissors and make my husband do all my wrapping for me. :)

  96. Sarah L says

    This is a great giveaway! Those are wonderful products. Celestial Seasonings is my favorite brand of tea.

  97. Catherine A Kennedy says

    Thank you for the opportunity to win this great giveaway. Happy Holidays to ALL!

  98. Bexy says

    Hey!! I found your blog about a year ago when i was in a frantic search to find other new moms who had babies around the same time I did. My son is an Oct 2011 baby, and I love watching how Haily has grown along side my lil guy!! This is my first comment, but i’ve read every post since our munchkins have been around!

  99. Katherine says

    I love to see your smiling face in my emails – it brightens my day (no, I am not brown nosing to win – HA HA :-) Great giveaway – thanks for putting it together.

  102. Emily R. says

    What an impressive collection of items! I would love to win everything, but am especially intrigued by the olive oils.

  103. says

    I would love this whole package since it contains so many tree nuts! After alelrgy testing and a food challenge yesterday we found out Alyssa is one of the 7% of kids who outgrow their tree nut allergies!!! Now i actually have to make her eat nuts 3 times a week to keep her body used to them!
