In honor of the back to school frenzy, I am bringing back the outrageously popular Thirty-One Gifts giveaway!  I posted a few months ago about how much I am truly madly deeply in love with my Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote and my love has never wavered.  I have used my bag more than I could ever count and it has become a staple in keeping me semi-sort of-organized.  I’m a notoriously distracted soul, so I’ll take the help.

I feel like this would be the ideal bag for a Mom (or Dad) on the go.  Now that school is just around the corner, we need to be far more organized and actually out the door with more than three minutes to get the kids to school.  This bag is perfect for keeping our lives together.

My bag and I go everywhere together.

Full of snacks and drinks and general flotsam and jetsam that we seem to need for a one-hour trip around town to run errands.

This thing is pretty awesome. It has seven exterior pockets that constantly get filled with water bottles for teeball practice, blender bottles for the gym, my phone and keys. The material is very heavy duty and wipes clean with no problems. My favorite part of the bag is that it actually holds its shape when you set it down. It doesn’t get all floppy and sideways, knocking your water bottles over and smooshing your snacks.  There is a home for EVERYTHING because it’s a known fact that you can never have too many pockets.

A good friend of mine took hers on the plane to Hawaii and she said it was perfect as a carry-on.  My plan for the next bag is to use it for blogging, when I’m hauling my pile of notes and receipts and laptop and general mish-mash to the coffee shop for the five minutes I get to myself every week.

kind

On top of all this organizing and getting our heads on straight, we need to start thinking about our kids’ lunches.  And keeping our parental selves fueled for the carpooling and the homework and the lost shoes and the baseball and the last minute science projects.

KIND bars are one of the few pre-packaged bars we will keep around the house.  They are low in sugar with no artificial sweeteners and a good source of fiber and protein.  They are also non-GMO, gluten-free and contain no hydrogenated oils, so they are a ginormous win-win.

Jessica of Thirty-One Gifts is generously offering one lucky reader their very own Zip Top Organizing Utility Tote in the color of their choice!  Annnnnnnnnd.  KIND is also offering a box of Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt bars to start the school year off right.  Or you know, to hide in the bathroom and eat all by yourself.

Check this, people.  I have been Facebook/Instagram/Twitter stalking JUNK Brands and professing my undying love for EVER, hoping against hope that they would just be like “We love you and want to work with you ALL THE TIME”.  But of course they are ridiculously popular and busy and at every CrossFit event on the planet and the official headband of the REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES.  What the what?

When I saw the JUNK Brands booth at the Northwest CrossFit Regionals in May, I all but bombarded them and announced to anyone who would listen that I was falling over in excitement to see all the headbands in the most beautiful display of headwear I have ever seen.  I’m super subtle.  I got the chance to talk to Beau of JUNK and he was excited about doing a giveaway and working together.  And then he showed me how to actually tie their Flex Tie band on my head because I’m challenged.

1527721_616984201729375_1146444690_n

My husband bought me one of these headbands for my birthday last year and it has been a workout staple ever since.  They are super stretchy and flexible, but stay put throughout every workout imaginable.  Bonus?  I wear them on the days I don’t wash my hair and it covers up a lot of nasty.  I’m currently loving on my third headband.

10413061_1423944491205767_324526964_n

While I LOVE their Infinity bands, I chose a Flex Tie band while I was at Regionals and it has become my new favorite.  I definitely like them a little tighter.  No slippage means I don’t have to think about them when I’m flinging myself on the floor in the middle of a workout or trying to stabilize a heavy bar over my head. My band stayed put through an almost full hour workout, with 2 miles of running, 100 squats, 100 push-ups and 100 pull-ups. Murph, for all my CrossFit peeps.

Stays put while I’m cleaning.

I was recently contacted by a representative for Muller yogurt, asking if we would be interested in checking out the new Muller Corner yogurt that will be available at Costco in June.  Since I love Costco and my family thinks that yogurt is as rare as unicorns and leprechauns and is like magical dessert, we were excited to try it.

We aren’t necessarily opposed to yogurt or dairy (I LOVE me some cheese), but we are opposed to nasty ingredients.  When we do eat dairy, we try our best to make sure the products come from quality ingredients and Muller was a good fit.

The Muller Corner yogurt is a cup of this amazingly delicious and sweet vanilla yogurt, with a “corner” attached with a mix-in ingredient.  Costco will sell a 12-pack of the yogurt in 3 different flavors, Choco Balls, Strawberry and Caramelized Almonds.  At just $9.99 for the pack and $.83 per cup, it’s a pretty inexpensive sweet treat or easy (and portable) lunch add-on.

My kids were equally as excited to get yogurt from the mailman as they were to actually eat it.

Costco will be sampling Muller Corner yogurt in the Pacific NW area on May 18, May 25, June 11 and June 25.

Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote Citrus Medallion

Congratulations to Nicole D. who won a FANTASTIC Zip Top Organizing Utility Tote from Thirty-One Gifts!  I have this bag and have been using it every week for transporting teeball paraphernalia and snacks, to the gym with all the ridiculous things I take to the gym and everywhere else I need to carry something (which is all the time).  I love that it stands flat and doesn’t fall over and it’s very easy to wipe up and clean.

Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote Citrus Medallion

I’ve heard people speak of this Thirty-One company and how much they LOVE all their stuff and could NEVER buy any other organizing/carrying/picnicking product as long as they live.  Because I’m the ultimate skeptic and I struggle mightily to buy slightly more expensive (although generally higher-quality) stuff, I have held out.

Until.

I was contacted by a Thirty-One consultant and this adorable Zip Top Organizing Utility Tote found its way to my front door.  I still held out, assuming I wouldn’t be overly impressed.  Once I took it out of the plastic, the bag decided to follow me everywhere.

4c99f4a2c00a11e3a7910002c9dd0428_8

Full of snacks and drinks and general flotsam and jetsam that we seem to need for a one-hour trip around town to run errands.

49b302cac74d11e3b7340002c9559cd6_8

Full of bananas and trail mix and blender bottles and protein shakes for a CrossFit competition.  By far the most tough-looking, hard core bag at the comp.  Even when I’m sweating up a storm and working out for 13 hours,  a girl’s gotta look good.

This thing is pretty awesome.  It has seven exterior pockets that constantly get filled with water bottles for teeball practice, blender bottles for the gym, my phone and keys.  The material is very heavy duty and wipes clean with no problems.  My favorite part of the bag is that it actually holds its shape when you set it down.  It doesn’t get all floppy and sideways, knocking your water bottles over and smooshing your snacks.

And for heavens sakes, it’s not even close to being that expensive.  Why don’t I research things before getting all skeptical about them.  This bag is rad.

What do I win?

While we generally shop at Tropical Traditions for their AMAZING organic raw honey, they also have tons of other fantastic organic food options to choose from. We have tried their coconut flour, coconut oil, pure maple syrup and more. Now that we have gone almost completely grain-free in our house, we had to completely overhaul our pantry and our cooking and baking needs changed. We had to find alternatives to flour, processed sugar and traditional sweeteners, which seemed like a bit of a challenge in the beginning. Luckily, there are a million and one recipes out there that helped guide us in the right direction.

Tropical Traditions has been a fantastic source for high-quality, grain-free and delicious products for our family.  One of our favorite products are the Organic Coconut Chips.  They have no added sugar and are perfect for adding to homemade trail mix or granola.

10253248_10202919047011483_1081838102_n

We also like to add a handful or two to our green smoothies for extra flavor and healthy fats.

Never heard of Tropical Traditions?

Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil? Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales and to learn about the many uses of coconut oil.

What do I win?

Tropical Traditions is giving away a 1-gallon tub of unsweetened coconut chips to one lucky reader!
