Aloha Friday #17

Aloha Friday

Kailani at An Island Life does Aloha Friday and here is what she has to say:

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

My question to you is:

What do you do to stay healthy?

As I’ve been working on getting healthy and losing weight, (you can read more about my progress here) I’ve realized it isn’t about a “diet”. It’s about a full lifestyle change. I’m excited to be getting such great results with IdealShape. This week I was down another 2 pounds, but most importantly, I’m down a little over 4% body fat and 4 inches in my waist and hips! Woo hoo! I’ve loved IdealShape so much that they’ve given me the chance to do a couple of giveaways! This week, I’m giving away a free 30 day supply of their fantastic shake. That’s a $50 value! Take your pick of Milk Chocolate or Smooth Vanilla. To enter, simply comment on this post with your answer to Aloha Friday, along with your choice of flavor. Coming up in the next few weeks – I’ll be giving away the entire program! Want 2 more chances to win?

Box Tops For Education

I love buying General Mills brand items for a few reasons.

#1 – They are great about providing coupons for their products.
#2 – They have the Box Tops For Education program.

If you have school age children, please make sure you are clipping these box tops. It’s free money for their school. If you don’t have school age children, clip them anyway and give them to a child you know! (If anyone out there is willing to share, let me know :) )

Here are two more great ways to earn money for your school. When you shop online in their marketplace, a percentage of your purchase will be donated to your school when you shop at over 70 participating stores. These are stores you may shop at any way. With the holidays quickly approaching, why not get what you need and help out a great cause at the same time? Through the Reading Room, you can shop online at Barnes & Noble and up to 6% of your purchase goes back to your school.

Kailani at An Island Life is having a great giveaway right now. She’s giving away a $50 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble for one lucky winner courtesy of Boxtops for Education! Head over to her site for details on how you can enter to win.

Giveaway Results!

I only had 2 people respond to my first giveaway… So instead of drawing one name, I’ve decided to do a custom holiday card for both of them!

Congrats to Tiffany at Snapshots of Life and Louise at Momstart! Ladies, check your emails for more details.

Stay tuned for more giveaways coming in the near future!
