RELAXATION GIVEAWAY

I can't even begin to tell you all how good it feels to have the yearbook complete! I actually had a Saturday just for "me". I didn't have that nagging little voice in my head constantly thinking about what I need to do in the yearbook...what photo goes there....what should I write here....did I spell that child's name right?!

*took a deep breath* **smiled** it's over. YAY!!!

So I said I was going to do a giveaway when it was complete. When I was thinking of what to do I immediately thought of something that relaxes or de-stresses me after a long hard day.

Well, first thing that came to mind was BC Powder! I love this stuff!! It gets rid of my worse headaches in 15 minutes!!
Second was my hook and some yarn. Crocheting relaxes me so much! So I sat down and made a coaster for your coffee or tea cup out of cotton yarn that I dyed with kool-aid. It would be perfect sitting next to your computer while you blog! (cup not included)

I then thought about how much I love drinking Spiced Chai Tea. It's like comfort food in a cup. Really yummy if you use 1/2 cup almond milk in it! Mmmm...I think I'm gonna go make me a cup.
I then thought how I like to light some vanilla candles.....
and soak in the tub. My favorite body wash to use when I've had a long day is Bath & Body Works SLEEP lavender chamomile...it's part of the aromatherapy line. I am also addicted to the room spray. It just soothes and calms.

So there you go.....My Relaxation Giveaway.


To enter to win all you have to do is....Leave me a comment telling me how you relax or de-stress!!
Thanks to all of you for the words of encouragement during those stressful days!! You are all wonderful!! I'll pick a winner Sunday evening using random.org I'll post the winner on Monday. Good luck!

I like to relax or de-stress by going to the gym, putting on some hardcore music in the ole ipod and banging out about an hours worth of weightlifting....when I'm done I feel like a whole new person, seriously! I hope I win!

Yours truly, John(keeper of the skies)

I used to work out to destress and drive to relax. Now driving is to expensive and I am slacking on the working out. Now I plop my kid in the tub with tons of toys and read my daily bible reading. My child gets clean with out even knowing it and I have time to decompress with the best! I like some of your ideas for relaxing. I should take note!

Betty said...

Sounds great! Lots of goodies!
I relax with a hammock and a good book. It´s almost always warm enough to be outside here, so our hammock is always in good use...

Yaya said...

Oops! I think I forgot you on my last post! Gotta go add ya!

Sandy Toes said...

I love all of these things! I could really use them right now!

When I am stressed I go to the gym.

When I want to relax I lay on the couch in the living that noone else goes to and read a great book.

You are awesome for giving all of this away!

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

OMG! While I was writing this Michelle wrote hers and I thought I was going to die laughing.

That is why we love Michelle right?

Great give away...after all this moving and packing and unpacking I can sure use that!! The way I de stress or relax is sitting in my comfy chair with my confy clothes on and read, read and read some more!! I love it!!

Heather said...

Never tried the tea. Love candles, and that lavender spray is incredible. I used it when I was having Gabe, spraying the bed and the curtains and the pillows in the hospital. My nurses thought I was crazy, but it helped. He was born two hours later with no drugs to help. Oh, yeah!

To relax: I love to read. And drink some Mike's Hard Lemonade with a bit of homemade popcorn in a bowl, and my little dog cuddled up next to me. Good times.

Thanks for your sweet comments today. I needed them.

Hey, is John allowed to win?

Melody said...

Relax??

Okay, I guess I do relax sometimes. I like to go thrift store shopping with my dd, dh, or a good friend.

When I really have had it and am ready to put in my 2 weeks notice to my husband and children, I ask my wonderful dd to babysit and dh & I take an entire day and do whatever we want.

I love, love, love the vanilla candles!

Mrs. S said...

Relax? Huh? What's that? What is this unwinding you speak of?

The only thing I can think--and these days I am not exaggerating-- I sleep. Thats the only R&R I get haha!

I am SO glad you finished the yearbook I KNOW how hard they are and I know it has got to be the biggest relief!

PS I love Chai Tea and that looks SO good! And what is almond milk and where do I find it?

Becky said...

Love a hot bath like you with a good book and an ice water. But your stuff looks even better!

JANE said...

Late at night, curled up in hubby's BIG chair, reading a book and drinking a cup of coffee or sweet tea!

Carolyn G said...

A glass of wine or some hot tea and a good book and some comfy jammies destresses me everytime

WheresMyAngels said...

Oh I so want to try that powder. I am having awful headaches all the time now :( I was going to spend more time on the putor tonight reading blogs but my head is not in the mood for it.

How do I relax? I love staring at my fish tank. I've just started it up again and I love marine fish. I can watch my tank for an hour straight and be fascinated.

Congrats on finishing the year book!

natalie said...

Oh, the chai tea looks so delicious!

& I relax by laying in my bed, looking at pictures of food on flickr, and drinking hot tea :)

Julie said...

I relax by reading... i love to read. So glad that you had a restful day!

April said...

Oh, great stuff, my friend! I, especially, LOVE anything from Bath and Body Works! Glad you got in some R & R yesterday!

Hmmm....how do I relax? Well, I like to go for a walk at our local park. There's always lots of nature to take in and enjoy! Plus, I can loose myself in a nice hot bath...PURE HEAVEN! Have a wonderful Sunday!

SwizzlestickMama said...

Relax? Really? Ummm....I don't have anything I do right now to relax. If I do relax, it is sitting in front of the TV--but even then, not so relaxing. Hmmm....I USED to take baths--a nice long soak always relaxed me and got rid of any stress caused from school/work/family or friends...

What a great idea for a giveaway!

Z's Mom said...

What a great giveaway!

Wow, I like to read....just get away from reality and read about someone else's world...real or not. That is what destresses me.

Aubrey said...

What the?!?!?

I know I entered last night! Oh where, Oh where did my little comment go?

SO! This is a super FAB giveaway! Perfect for the nights when I just want to getaway to my bedroom retreat, door locked, cup of hot tea, stack of new magazines and an hour alone! That's my cure.

Yesterday? I just had to destress...hubby about pushed me over the edge. LOL My solution? Retail therapy and a nice, new, $$$ handbag!

Lynette said...

Thanks for telling me about this - I would have missed it!! All your giveaways are fabo!!

My fav way to relax is to read - I have a ton of books and love to re-read them - can't seem to throw my books away!!

Good luck to everyone!

Lori said...

What a great give-away. Thanks for letting me know.
I relax laying on the couch watching T.V.

MarciaBrady said...

Cool giveaway!

Ummm...I used to take baths to relax, but I don't have a tub in this apartment. I've often thought about moving just because of that.

So, I like to read or watch a good make you cry movie.

I'm so glad you were able to relax!!

Joy in the Burbs... said...

Looks like a great giveaway. You just reminded me I need to go finish a page on our yearbook. I'm waiting on someone to download pictures from an event.
I relax by taking a walk or staring mindlessly at the tv screen. Horrible isn't it.

♥ Joy

dddiva said...

Wonderful giveaway- well minus the chai- I always feel like I am stuffing flowers up my nose with the smell but the mini diva loves it. ;-)
Music- dancing- jumping- being a total dork de-stresses us.
Playing with the dogs or Ian (especially blowing bubbles for them).
And lately, Yoga on the Wii fit! I cannot do regular yoga but I love it on the Wii. Go figure.

So glad you got the yearbook finished and a chance to relax.

Lori said...

When you get a minute please come by I have something for you..
