July means gardening … and another giveaway!

Giveaway |


Well, Emily and I have been working on our gardens to varying degrees of success.  This year I am still good at growing cabbage worms…  my three kale plants can attest to that.  The most exciting thing for me this year is that, in addition to my four little tomato plants and some cucumbers, I added some strawberry plants and started some seeds for the first time (some melons)!  I tried to start an herb garden but the amount of rain is actually drowning them … I need to add some drainage to my patio container.  And, I planted six little kohlrabi plants. Just because they are so funky looking. My garden is not even in a square plot, it is spread throughout various flower beds around my little yard.  I even put some corn and pumpkins in my front flowerbed … It will probably look pretty random to passers by here in a few months.  You can take the girl out of Indiana …

On that note, while I sit and wait for my garden to grow, I have time to share this with you!  This month we have a fun summer giveaway full of some random gardening, cooking, and foraging items.   Check out the goodies and enter below!

Spring Bonanza Giveaway

Spring is here.  As you can tell from our “Spring into Balance” Challenge, we are pretty excited.   One of the things that we love doing is getting out in the garden.  Emily is a long time gardener, whereas Laura is fairly new to the hobby but really enjoys it.  Last year Laura grew some kale (and lots of cabbage worms!) and Emily started clearing out the garden in her rental home to make room for some new and beautiful foliage.

To get everyone in the mood for gardening, we are proud to announce a giveaway to get things started! (more…)

Ultimate Kitchen Tool Giveaway

Poster Ultimate

We are so very excited to announce that, along with ten other bloggers, we are offering you the chance to win your Ultimate Kitchen Tool!  Here’s the thing … after polling our various groups of Facebook communities, it became apparent that some people would do just about anything for a new Vitamix, other people covet a new set of Le Creuset … and some people prefer to pocket an Amazon gift card to get a new Kindle.  So, after many sleepless nights and heated debates among ourselves, we decided to let the winner decide.  Whew!  Problem solved.  😉
