Lately, I’ve been a really lucky gal.

Sometimes I get really dramatic and forget about this fact. Unfun things like PMS and writing deadlines are to blame for my lack of recollection, me thinks. But I am. Very, very, very much so. I have a good job with a fantastic boss + co-workers. Food companies deem me cool enough to send me free stuff. Jake Gyllenhaal is back on the market. I have a SUPER fun best friends weekend coming up in 8 days. Annnndddd I get paid again in 19 days.

But what am I most grateful for these days?

YOU {!!!}.

Yeah, you.

My readers.

I deem you the most intelligent, hilarious and best readers in all of blogland.

Don’t believe me?

Read the awesome responses of the ten lucky winners of an one-of-a-kind Everythingtarian bumper sticker (chosen by…

mamaeverythingtarian “Sometimes I think…that some people spend too much time thinking and not enough time enjoying.

Caitlin “Sometimes I think reading your blog is the perfect cure for Madison homesickness. I have earrings made from Mexican pesos from the same lady :) She’s either in library mall or up at the Capitol on Farmer’s Market Saturdays selling her awesome wares.”

Michelle “Sometimes I think chocolate and peanut butter is the best food combination ever created.”

Kaleigh “Sometimes I think that I would like to eat an egg fried in butter for every meal of the day. In fact, that picture makes me want to go fry one up right now, in green socks of course.”

Brad “Sometimes I think I am the only male who reads food blogs.”

Kailey (Snackface) “Sometimes I think I love you, and then I realize that all the time I KNOW I love you!”

kimi “Sometimes I think I have the best freckles in the whole world. Like award winning freckles.”

Megan (Braise the Roof) “Sometimes I think that 1 degree weather is character building. And then I realize that it pretty much just sucks, and all the old retirees that move south for the winter are onto something.”

Kelly “Sometimes I think people can read my mind. Like when I see something that I like on their blog, and right before I am going to ask them where I can get it, they offer to give them away. (ahem. bumper sticker.)”

Denice “Sometimes I think it totally sucks to have a cold, but then I am kind of secretly happy that it makes me have a night at home with a great friend watching a perfect movie!”

Alright winners, send me an e-mail at with your name + address so I can send you your collector’s item Everythingtarian bumper sticker. Trust me, when I make it big, it’s going to be worth like $2.00.

It turns out I get luckier.

The lovely people over at iHerb offered me the chance to do some shopping free of charge on their online store, which is filled with an extensive array of natural products. Bath. Kitchen. Food. Cooking. Supplements. Homeopathy. Nut butters galore. You name it. They have it.

After spending more than an hour browsing their online store, I finally kicked myself in my indecisive butt and made my order. Less than a week later, Abby + the iHerb peeps had my goodies awaiting at my doorstep…

{!!!} <- this is me not being able to contain my excitement

  • dry brush
  • organic chia seeds
  • Artisana Macadamia Nut Butter
  • Yogi detox tea
  • homeopathic migraine medicine
  • seaweed gomasio
  • maca powder

{!!!} <- this is more excitement

I’m having visions of migraine-free dry brushing sessions followed up with chia maca pudding topped with macadamia butter + gomasio and washed down with detox tea. It shall be glorious.

In the meantime, I want one of YOU to win the same opportunity. So does iHerb.

Here’s what you need to do to enter and win a free $50 shopping spree on…

Michelle @ Living Learning Earning February 10, 2011 at 10:15 pm

I’d probably buy cocoa nibs – I keep seeing them everywhere and want to know what the fuss is about!

I would love to try midori greens, it sounds so healthy! Awesome giveaway, I love iherb.

April February 10, 2011 at 11:23 pm

After seeing you use the Gomasio, now I want some! I would also go crazy with the Yogi teas (specifically Bedtime and Tahitian Vanilla), try some of the Nature’s Plus protein powder and maybe some Bob’s Red Mill goodness. iHerb has great prices!

Eden February 11, 2011 at 12:15 am

I would order a six pack of beer.
They sell that, right?

kim February 11, 2011 at 5:46 am

I love iherb! I would totally stock on up coconut oil, and that gomasio intrigues me!

Jessica February 11, 2011 at 6:34 am

I would love to try some goji berries and coconut oil :)

Sarah A February 11, 2011 at 7:28 am

chia seeds, midori greens, or coconut oil!

Carrie S. February 11, 2011 at 7:58 am

Chia seeds (just spilled my whole container the kitchen floor this morning. Boo), maca, coconut flour, and some brewer’s yeast.

Melissa February 11, 2011 at 8:42 am

I would stock up on nooch and try some things that are new to me- namely, chia seeds and maca powder!

Lauren February 11, 2011 at 9:10 am

There’s so much to choose from I can’t decide, probably some coconut butter and maybe maca since I can’t seem to find them in any stores near me.

Jenny February 11, 2011 at 9:24 am

dudeeee, I would stock up on chia seeds! Those pups are not cheap.

Megan February 11, 2011 at 11:46 am

Bars! Any type of bars, but lots of them :). Larabars would definitely be included.

Danielle February 11, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Coconut oil! I’ve been dying to try it, but I can’t bring myself to splurge for it yet.

Sarah February 11, 2011 at 1:43 pm

Chia seeds!!! I’ve been dying to try them!!

jeri February 11, 2011 at 2:07 pm

I would love to restock my tea stash…otherwise…maybe I’d be adventurous and get some chia seeds…. I dunno!?!?

ally February 11, 2011 at 3:23 pm

Eek! I would totally buy Chia seeds in order to try Chia-ified oats!

Hope you’re well!


Elise February 11, 2011 at 3:33 pm

I would load up on dried fruit!! Mango, Papaya, Pineapple- oh my!!!

julie February 11, 2011 at 3:47 pm

chia seeeeeeeeds! i’ve been wanting to try them since the birth of christ and i’m too cheap to bite the bullet and buy them

<—is that wrong to say?

Ally (oatsandspice) February 11, 2011 at 7:27 pm

I think I would buy some maca powder – I have been reading so many posts lately about all the great uses for it (I have even bookmarked 6 recipes). It wasn’t too long ago when I didn’t even know what the stuff was :) I have been meaning to try it but haven’t had the chance (since I am a busy college student)… I hope I win the iHerb giftcard – that would make my day (or week for that matter)!

Kady February 11, 2011 at 8:31 pm

I would buy food that I don’t normally buy because I’m a poor grad student! Some LaraBars and almond butter sound good!

Cee February 11, 2011 at 9:05 pm

At the very least I am interested in the Ecco Bella products, particularly the Ecco Bella, The Paperback FlowerColor, Face Powder, Fair, .38 oz (11 g). I am allergic to all makeup, it seems like, and I have heard many good things about this company. But I might just have to spend it on several jars of the Artisana, 100% Organic Raw Coconut Butter, 16 oz (454 g)!!

Jessie February 11, 2011 at 9:19 pm

I want one of these dry brushes to combat stupid Colorado dryness! Also, nut butters. As if there was ever any question.

Amanda February 11, 2011 at 10:16 pm

Chia seeds! I could finally try them. Also dried blueberry’s and coconut butter.

janetha @ meals and moves February 11, 2011 at 10:45 pm

janetha @ meals and moves February 11, 2011 at 10:46 pm

i meant i already lost the bumper sticker thing. sorry, that comment was left before reading the rest of the post. anyway, i want to win this one. i would buy d-mannose.

Shelby Bachman February 12, 2011 at 2:13 am

Vanilla stevia, Amazing Grass, and goji berries! :)

Eve February 12, 2011 at 2:42 am

Garlic gold, because I’ve wanted to try it for so long!

Joy February 12, 2011 at 7:25 am

I would be all over chia seeds

Sarah February 12, 2011 at 10:41 am

hmm, so many things to choose from…. i want to try coconut butter and chia seeds, and a lot of their bath/beauty products look great–like the kiss my face moisturizer!

Jen February 12, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Chia seeds, coconut oil, and absolutely the whey too good brownie mix- because life is absolutely too short not to eat dessert.
