Here’s to a tasty 2010 and an ever tastier 2011! :D


In other news, Mother Nature must have heard the call of last night’s salad because it was, get ready for it, 61 degrees today!!! I was waltzing around this afternoon without a coat, literally unable to comprehend the spring-like temps smiling down on the Midwest in the dead of winter. I still can’t believe it!

The day only got better when I opened my mailbox this afternoon and found a crisp, white, bakery bag inside filled with…


Blueberry Muffin Larabars!! I was all “whoooowwhhaaaaaaAAAAYYESSSSSS!!!


Blueberry Muffin Larabars, people! I had no idea LB was coming out with a new flavor, and to get a surprise package of them in the mail was just the cherry blueberry on the sundae! Thanks Larabar! :D


Sticking with the company’s signature low-ingredient list, this bakery-inspired bar has all the right stuff.


And it legit tastes like blueberry muffin! There was no mistaking it for anything else with those chewy, sweet, dried blueberries. HOW do they do it?


I know we just got done with the Month of Holiday Giveaways, but I’ve GOT to share the love. I’m giving away 3 Blueberry Muffin Larabars to 3 LB lovers! Enter by Friday, 12/30 @ 5pm central by telling me what your favorite part of 2010 was!

Ready? Set… Go!
