Lots for me…and for you! {Larabar Giveaway!}

The holidays are always a fun time of year! I love December/January for a multitude of reasons: generosity, baking, decorating, shopping, traveling, friends, family, love, music, and…gifts. While it truly is better to give than it is to receive, receiving can be a bundle of fun, too 😉 And I have received some fabulous gifts recently and I wanted to thank all those special people!

First there was toffee and homemade flavored coffees (so yum!) from my Secret Santa, Heather. The toffee was long gone before the camera made it out of its case, and the reason for that would be Nicole + toffee = disappearing act. Magic, if you will. Oops. Thanks, Heather!


Then there was a giveaway I won from Sarah — a Starbucks gift card, a Christmas mug, and dark chocolate coffee. Sigh. Love coffee and Starbucks! Thanks, Sarah!


And then another giveaway win (I was on a dry spell for a good many months before these 2 wins, I assure you!)! I won a $55 CSN Stores giftcard where I was able to get a French press AND a pastry cutter. The French press arrived in a jiff, and the pastry cutter is on its way. Thanks, Heather!


And then came another Secret Santa gift from Julie, who sent a green gift of homemade coasters made from recycled tiles. Such a neat idea! Thanks, Julie!

Then LASTLY, I won ANOTHER CSN Stores giftcard for $35 from Lee! I am going to get a doughnut pan and a digital food scale! I haven’t ordered yet, so no photo…but I’m pretty psyched about it 🙂 Thanks, Lee!!

And because I am feeling like such a lucky blogger (because I am!!), I would love to spread the love to several lucky winners! TEN lucky winners, actually! Each winner will receive 10 mini LARABARS!

LARABAR graciously sent LOTS of mini Larabars in 3 flavors: Cherry Pie, Peanut Butter Cookie, and Chocolate Chip Brownie. Thank you, LARABAR! I absolutely love LARABARS and carry one in my purse at all times. They are gluten-free, vegan, and made from fruit, nuts, and seeds. They’re delicious and healthy!

To enter the giveaway, do one, or all, or some of the following. Leave a SEPARATE comment for each entry. TEN winners will be drawn at random on Thursday, January 6th at 9pm CT!

1. Leave a comment stating whether or not you’ve tried LARABARS before.

2. Tweet “Prevention RD is giving away LARABARS! Be sure to enter! http://wp.me/pJN1M-1gY“. Leave a separate comment letting me know you tweeted!

3. Become a fan of Prevention RD on Facebook and leave a separate comment letting me know you’re a fan. If you’re already a fan, leave a comment letting me know!

4. Link back to this giveaway in a blog post of your own. Leave another comment with a link back to your post!

Enjoy your Sunday!

    You’re the giveaway QUEEN! Those coasters are so neat. I wish I was creative like that! What a great gift idea.

    I will leave this one for others to win, because I can’t eat Larabars ๐Ÿ™ So sad. She puts dates in EVERY SINGLE ONE of her bars, which is not good for me.
