It's another Bloggy Giveaway!

Edit: This giveaway has been closed. Check back for more contests!

I was going to wait to post this on Sunday because I already had something to give away for the Carnival, but you can never have too much free stuff, huh?


So here we go! I've got THREE Chex Mix Bar gift baskets. That's right THREE! If you haven't tried the Chex Mix Bars, you seriously need to go out and buy every box you can get your hands on. They are SO good! I know from experience because I just ate one. They have Chex cereal pieces, nuts, pretzels, chocolate, and the entire bar is drenched in caramel. My fingers are sticking to the keyboard just a little.

The best part? They only have 150 calories per bar, and each bar has at least 8 grams of whole grain. If you consider that we should eat 48 grams a day, eating the whole box doesn't seem so bad does it? Oh, don't pretend like you don't have those days. It's only six bars. Come that time of the month, a rough Monday, eating six of these gooey, salty but sweet, yum bars will be a piece of cake! I gotta stop talking about them before I eat another one. Really, they're like healthy candy bars; another one won't hurt. Hold on...

Okay, so look at the gift basket while I finish chewing.




Now I need some milk. Anyway, not only will you get a whole box of the yummy bars, you get some chocolate scented candles, caramel lotion (which smells so good that they had to put a warning not to eat it on the bottle), and a bunch of spa accessories. I know the pictures kind of small, but we are talking full size stuff here, people, and I've got THREE to give away!

To enter the drawing for one of the three baskets, just leave me a comment with the last time you were able to really pamper yourself and what you did. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you win! The drawing will be on Saturday 11/1 at 8pm EST.

Be sure to visit my other giveaways here, and to see all the other goodies being offered, go to the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival site.

I can't think of the last time I was pampered, actually. With five kids, a business and household to run, and college classes there doesn't seem to be much time for pampering. This gift basket looks great (and I have to agree with you that the Chex Mix bars are really good!). Thank you for offering this great giveaway!

I've actually never been pampered. I've never really had the chance to. This year, I just might have to splurge and give myself one free day of relaxation!

Kellie said...

So the last time I pampered myself was a couple weeks ago...I took a "mental health day" off work, stayed home, watched movies and played at my sewing machine all day. Not everyone's idea of pampering, but I enjoyed it :)

The last time I was pampered was at a woman's retreat last weekend. They had ladies there with their product line and they gave us treatments for our hands, lips, face, feet and neck and showed us some pressure points on our hands.... nice!
Cute Giveaway!

Mommie Daze said...

Well, my dear husband very generously gave me a wad of cash and sent me out shopping all by myself a few weeks ago. I was instructed to spend all the money he gave me only on myself. It was so fun. Believe me, that's not something I get to do often.

Jessica said...

I've never really been pampered, at least not at like a spa or anything. I personally relax and unwind by soaking in a nice, warm bubble bath. I have candles lit and just sit back and enjoy. Then I give myself a pedicure.
Thanks for the giveaway and have a great Halloween.

Karen said...

For my 40th birthday, I spent the whole day at the spa and I swear I came out of there 10 years younger...

Hmm...It's been awhile...let's see, I guess about 7 months (wow, that long?) ago and I went to the spa for a massage and mani/pedi. So fun! My hubby had given me a gift certificate. Wasn't that sweet?

Two nights ago I had the house all to my self (and the cats of course) so I took a long hot bubble bath with a good book!

Heidi said...

Honestly the closest I have gotten to be able to pamper myself is to convince my husband to get up with our son on Sat morning so I can wake up slowly in bed.

Lia said...

I hardly ever pamper myself, but last time I'd say moisturized real good

I can't remember. That is so sad.

Does it count that I spent 4 days in the hospital last week and totally wallowed in the peace and quiet?

Seriously, I don't remember the last time I pampered myself, but my husband was a sweetie last week and massaged my feet - that was even better! Thanks for the giveaway!

Julie said...

The last time was Mother's Day. My husband gave me a "day off" so I went to the outlet malls and hour away, stayed overnight at a hotel and basically did whatever I wanted. It was fabulous. But I'd love this too!

Becca Ann said...

I don't know when my last pampering was... I need to be pampered

Julie said...

I don't know when the last time I was really pampered. I could sadly say that it was a day over 9 years ago when my sisters and my mother gave me a gift card for a spa day. I had a mani/pedi, a facial, and a massage. It was divine.

I've decided to throw away the box hair color this summer and get my hair done professionally. It's quite a bit more expensive, but I've got so much gray I really need an expert. To me, it really an indulgence.

Thanks for hosting this great giveaway.

It has been a long time. I guess taking a long bath while reading a book and having a lavendar candle lit was the most pampered I have been lately.

ahiltz said...

I can't remember the last time I pampered myself. How sad is that? I am a mom of 3 kids and a dog with a husband that travels everyweek out of state (at least he has a job, right!) and then I work on the weekends! Blah! Thanks so much for doing this giveaway!

Becky N. said...

I don't remember the last time I was pampered. Honestly. Sadly.

My husband went on a quickie date for our anniversary... but my baby was less than a month old. He went with us. We ate at a favorite restaurant without the older kids, at least.

I haven't had a break without the kids since my first was born. Oh, look at me... starting to feel sorry for myself. Really, I could use a bit of pampering, even in basket form!

Roxy said...

Last time? Neverwary! Please help me change this lol tanya.b.82(at)gmail(dot)com

Angie said...

Hmmmmm...I can't remember. Does taking a shower without one of the kids or hubby coming in to ask me something count? :-)

Thanks for the chance to win..this looks so yummy & relaxing!
