It’s My Birthday (A Giveaway Celebration)

Posted: August 23, 2011 at 8:00 am

Creative post title, no? Winking smile

Well, I don’t have to get all creative up in here today because IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! Can you tell I feel just a wee bit excited? I don’t quite know why but I have awaited this birthday for awhile. It’s not even a big deal like turning 30 or anything. I’m simply another year older and hopefully at least a few months worth wiser. The last year has proved an exciting one, so perhaps I just anticipate even bigger and brighter things ahead.


I don’t know how I can beat it though. Just look at all that has happened in my life since my last birthday:

Yowza! Looking at that astounds me. I sure hope you all hang around for the next year of my life. It wouldn’t be the same without ya. Smile

Since its my birthday and all, I think that calls for a little celebration. And what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway. I love you and nothing makes me happier than showing you some love. That’s what I want for my birthday – to say thank you and spread the love.


You all know I worked with Love Grown Foods at the blogging conference. You all know how much I adore them. I think nothing compares to their granola. I think they may just be the nicest group of individuals to work with out there. They inspire the heck out of me with their commitment to producing quality, dreaming big, and still caring for the people who eat their granola. I think you will quickly fall in love with them too after trying their granola.

I think we need a Love Grown Giveaway so I can a) say the biggest THANK YOU in the world to Love Grown for sponsoring me at the conference, b) say an even bigger THANK YOU to you for reading and supporting my passion in FFF, and c) to have some fun on my birthday. Giveaways are a blast, right? Open-mouthed smile

What will you win? How about…

  • FIVE full sized bags - one of each flavor
  • FIFTEEN mini bags – great for portion control if you think it will help you not get addicted to handful after handful of the delicious goods
  • a Love Grown T-SHIRT! - insanely comfortable and cute

Five bags of granola = five possible entries! Whattaya say? Open-mouthed smile
Please leave a SEPARATE comment for EACH entry.

  • Leave a comment telling which flavor is your favorite / you would like to try most.
  • Tweet the following: I am celebrating @TinaFFF 's birthday with this @LoveGrownFoods #giveaway !!
  • Like Faith Fitness Fun on Facebook.
  • Like Love Grown Foods on Facebook.
  • If you attended the conference, received a sample from me, and blogged about trying Love Grown – leave a link to that post for an extra entry.

There you have it! Let my virtual blog birthday celebration giveaway begin! Love you!

Open to US Residents only. Giveaway ends Wednesday August 24 @ 10 pm EST.
