Hi Melissa, You are so generous!! What a sweet giveaway!! Everything is just wonderful...please enter my name in! I can't believe we have been blogging a year and a half! Wow!! Time is flying...Thanks for checking on me. We got some rain yesterday, but no tonadoes...Thank the Lord! Would you believe about nine years ago a tornado hit right where my house is! This area wasn't built yet, but it destroyed alot of homes and businesses. I just hope it doesn't happen again! We had a huge hail storm two years ago...they were the size of softballs! Everyone in our area got new roofs. Our cars were in the garage, but the ones that got hit looked like someone had taken a hammer to them! It was unreal!! Anyway, all this bad weather is bringing back memories...thanks for your concern!! Again, great giveaway! You are the sweetest! Kristen

Hi Melissa, you always the most lovely giveaways :-) I know you enjoy shopping for them but we are most certainly lucky too getting a chance to win the goodies. Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

I like smoothies with yogurt but I've never tried adding veg but am thinking it might be fun to try!
