Spa Break Giveaway

Yesterday was a crazy day. First off, I woke up at 6.20am to appear on a certain local radio station, Shine.Fm. Those of you who know me (and now the rest of you!) will know that anything before 7.30am is super early for me. So by the time the interview came on at 7.30 I’d drunk copious amounts of coffee and was overcome by nerves! Not sure why..

After that I had an hour long chat with my awesome friend who tried to work out the formatting on my blog….

Then I left my darling hubby with the monkey so I could go work at Panera. I didn’t get as much as I wanted done, rushed to make it before the noon deadline and decided I’d just come home and finish there. My problem is that my brain goes at 100MPH when I blog and the internet at Panera was staggering along at well, say, 10MPH. That and the coffee – not a good combo!

I walked through the door highly caffeinated, frazzled and a little cranky until my darlin hubby handed me a box. He loves it when I get packages in the mail because another thing about me (yes, this is TMI day!) is that my love language is gifts and even a sample from Dove can totally make my day! Anyhoo, this was WAYYYYYYYY better! When I opened it I got a spa basket from the kind folks over at General Mills. Heaving a sigh of relief I ripped open the Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Chewy bar (more coffee hoorah!) and took a howge bite (did I tell ya’ll that coffee makes me starvin??) So now I’m kinda relaxed, fed and no more coffee all afternoon. This little basket totally made my day which is why I’m thrilled to announce giveaway Number 2 where I’m giving 3 of these away!! Read on for a chance to win and I swear no more talk of my crazy Monday!

The new Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Chewy Bars combine a rich chocolate taste and smooth coffee flavor with the benefits of fiber in one delicious snack. Each great tasting, chewy bar provides 35% of the recommended daily fiber intake and also is a good source of calcium. Lemme tell ya, these things are awesome! I am somewhat of a granola bar connoisseur and I wasn’t disappointed. Although they’re chocked full of fiber, you’d never know it as the chocolate chips cover all that! Say yay if you love chocolate!

So what ya gonna get? Well, lucky readers, in this basket you will receive a coupon for one box of the new snack bars, a bath pillow, chocolate scented soap, lotion, and bath salts, and a coffee
scented candle. This thing is awesome I’m telling you’re gonna want in on this! If the real spa is too much money right now, enter to win this basket. Remember, I’ve got THREE to give away!

If you can’t wait to get your hands on the new Fiber One bars, download a coupon here.

    Could I use a spa break!!!! I have 4 children and have been sick for the past 3 weeks. Even though am I sick life still goes on for a mom and I have been running every which direction with my children. I have to have surgery in a couple weeks and it would be nice to have a few relaxing moments to take my mind off things.

    All I can say is… I totally can relate to your Panera/coffee experience. I just let Panera this morning after spending some GREAT time reading/doing devo's. Came home (not too frazzled b/c I am on decaf being pregnant) and my darling husband didn't hand me a box of yummy chocolate goodies, instead he was boiling eggs on the stove to make me egg salad for lunch today! My love language it totally gifts also, but to come home and see him making me lunch at 8:30 a.m. before he went to work so that it would be in the fridge for me at lunchtime TOTALLY warmed my heart!

    Not only would this gift basket be AWESOME for a preggo mommy of 2 girls but I would be able to "give back" to my husband b/c he has ALWAYS wanted a coffee scented candle for work. No joke! :<)

    Thanks, Clair!


  25. Sounds great!

  26. Would love this!

    Since my husband was laid off in January, I have turned to my coupon-clipping heavily. I am also thrilled that I saw the local newspaper article about Mummy Deals so that I was already receiving your emails. I love my several times a year microdermabrasion and facial appointments, but don’t know when I will be able to afford it now. And I would schedule massages for my husband and me around Valentine’s Day (which is also his birthday)…but couldn’t do it this year. So, anything with “spa” in it that is free (or really close to) is TOPS with me!! Also, love having granola bars (or all types) stashed in my desk drawer for that quick snack, especially when I am craving sweets!

  38. The Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Chewy bar sounds great! I, too, love my coffee. Mocha is one of my favorite flavors. Thanks for the review and the giveaway!
