Posted in General News

Okay,  guys and dolls. Sara and I have had quite a week–sleepless nights, teething babies, impending weddings (of immediate family members, not ourselves), technical difficulties, the start of school, and us working like crazy behind the scenes on some projects that kind of hit us all at once. Add George Clooney and it would have been The Perfect Storm.

My bigger kids are heading back to school today and I’m taking a deep breath, catching up on, like, 5 episodes of Catfish, and folding laundry without having to referee any fights. Oh, and we’re giving away something awesome. We’re putting 4 things up for grabs and the winner will get to pick the one thing they want to have sent to their doorstep!

1. 5-Quart Artisan KitchenAid Mixer

kitchenaidYep. A 5-quart Artisan mixer in the color of your choice. You know you need one. Or two.

2. 32 GB 5th Generation iPod Touch

ipod touchHave you seen the adorable colors for the new iPods? Yeah. Adorable. You could also pick a 32 GB 5th generation iPod touch in the color of your choice.

3. 7 1/4-Quart Le Creuset

We love our Le Creuset pans and think you guys would love one, too! If you pick this prize, you get the big daddy, the 7 1/4-quart, in whatever color you want!

4. 3 Months Worth of Croissants

croissants

Okay, so did anyone else ever see the favorite things episode of Oprah where she gave everyone those croissants from Williams-Sonoma that are sent frozen, overnight, to your doorstep, and then you bake them? I have alwaysalwaysalways wanted to do that, but I’ve never been able to justify it. So the next best thing is sending something as frivolous as 3 months worth of croissants to your doorstep instead of mine.

So what’s the nitty gritty?

1) Enter by leaving us a comment on this post (not on any other posts, not through email) telling us 1) which prize you want to win and b) what your favorite thing about THIS Friday is!

2) This giveaway is not sponsored; we’re paying for the prize. No ulterior motives here, just extreme gratitude that it’s almost the weekend and that September is almost here.

3) You must be a resident of the US. This isn’t because we’re jerkfaces, it’s because it’s the law (both US laws and giveaway/prize laws in other countries).

4) The giveaway will end next Thursay, August 22nd and announced on Friday, August 23. The winner will be notified by email and have 24 hours to respond. If we don’t hear from you, we’ll notify another winner. Be sure to enter using an email address you check often!

Are you guys ready?! On your mark, get set, go!

    Melanie I. K. says:

    Well, 1) I want the Kitchenaid in that lovely turquoise color, and 2) my favorite thing about this Friday is my plan to eat chocolate chip cookies (Sara’s chewy cookie recipe :)) during my daughter’s nap (major indulgence, but it’s Friday afternoon and she has spent this past week introducing me to the Terrible Twos!).

    I only recently started following your blog and the more I read the more I love it! The humor you ladies sprinkle throughout your posts always brightens my day. Looking forward to trying many more recipes.

    Michelle Pedersen says:

    I’m torn between being selfish (Kitchen-Aid) or semi-selfish (iPod for my 4 kids to share so they’ll leave my phone alone!) What’s awesome about Friday? It’s my last day of waking *without* an alarm clock – and that simple pleasure is one of my favorite things!

  10. 10
    Jill says:

    You 2 are wonderful. I would love love love to win the Kitchen Aid especially in that color! It has been on my Amazon wish list for ages! My favorite thing about this Friday is that I get to have a day off from working at the hospital and spend time with lots of family at my cousin’s wedding!

    Asia says:

    I would love to win the mixer! My favorite thing about today is my hubby is flying home after being out of town for work all week. Can’t wait to have him back!

    Katie says:

    you ladies are awesome! Best thing about Friday-my husband is getting off work early and we’re going to be putting the flooring down in our laundry and bathroom. I can’t wait to have a sink in there again! I would love to win the ipod. thanks!

  14. 14
    Ellen says:

    which prize you want to win and b) what your favorite thing about THIS Friday is!

    I want to win the KitchenAid mixer. My favorite thing about this Friday is that I’ll be one day closer to my hubbie coming home from a trip.

    shirley elizabeth says:

    Um, hello, you guys are the worst. A beautiful KitchenAid wouldbe amazing, ipod touch would entertain my babies (and husband) endlessly (they’re such dancers), I’ve been NEEDING a le creuset for my kitchen, and do you know how hard it is to make flaky, incredible croissants? These kind of decisions I defer to my husband because I’m the most indecisive person in the world.

    And…this Friday is great because it’s the day before my birthday!

  16. 16
    Amberlee Van Valkenburg says:

    I would love to add that size of le Creuset to my collection! I’m excited its Friday because that means I’m going to be getting rid of a lot of junk tomorrow. Lets hope someone else stops at my yard sale and falls in love with my junk!

  17. 17
    Catherine says:

    The mixer. Best thing about Friday…heading home after traveling for work this week!

  18. 18
    Len says:

    It is my dream to own a Le Creuset and if given only one choice from the four prizes, it would be my pick! My favorite thing about this Friday (besides it being a Friday) is I’ll be going on a weekend trip to Las Vegas to celebrate my best friend’s birthday!

  19. 19
    Michelle Machado says:

    I think I would like the ipod. Then the kids wouldn’t fight over my smartphone. This Friday is the last day of summer for us. And an annual trip to Chuck E Cheese for the kids and their friends as a last hurrah to summer.

  20. 20
    Sherri says:

    The mixer…because its my favorite color, and I’ve always wanted one. The best thing about Friday…heading up to the mountains for a couple days to get out of the heat!

  21. 21
    Sharon Joyner Griffith says:

    Such lovely prizes and very nice of you to do…I have to say the ipod because I just lost mine and it would be very much appreciated. Really the best thing about this Friday is I get to have my 11 year old grandson for the weekend and when we do we get to spoil him just a bit. He loves to bake with me and go to the movies with SH and me….so yeah for this friday. Have a great weekend.

    Deidra says:

    I would want the Le Creuset! I love that my husband gets the day off and we have it planned to spend together!

  26. 26
    Natasha Oldfield says:

    I would love to win the Le Creuset pan in some vibrant color to spruce up my kitchen and table. My favorite thing about this Friday is that we survived the first week back to school and I am hoping for a fun night out with my hubby to relax.

  27. 27
    Elizabeth N. says:

    Hardest decision ever but I’d have to go with the 7 1/4-Quart Le Creuset. As for my favorite thing about tomorrow…the fact that I am babysitting some random person for the first time in 9+ years (if you don’t count 2 years in nursery). It could potentially end up being quite awkward and hilarious. Other than that, my day will be just like every other day, as tends to happen after having a child.

  28. 28
    Kimberly D. says:

    oooh, I’d love to have a KitchenAid Mixer or a Le Creuset pot, but I think if I won I’d end up choosing the iPod Touch since my iPod screen has stopped working and it’s really old. And my favorite thing about this Friday is that it means the weekend is coming and I don’t have to work!

  29. 29
    kelsey says:

    I want a new kitchenaid. And not necessarily because I need one! And my favorite thing about this Friday? Well it’s not all the pee-soaked bedding I have to clean unexpectedly as I was intending on doing 10 loads of legitimate clothes washing today. So it must be that at some point today I’ll be able to watch a new episode of Project Runway and pretend I wasn’t up with two wet kids last night.

  30. 30
    Yulia W. says:

    I’ve never ever won anything in my life (except may be my husband who is so awesome that I feel like I’ve won a lottery with him!) But that mixer does look nice. Oh well… My favorite thing about this Friday is that it is finally the end of the week and my family will get together and have fun and relax.

  31. 31
    Sarah Barath says:

    I would love to win the 5-Quart Artisan KitchenAid Mixer, I have always wanted one. My favorite thing about this Friday is that I get to go camping in Flagstaff with my boyfriend, we are climbing Mt. Humphrey’s, the tallest peak in Arizona. We tried doing it at the beginning of the year but he got such altitude sickness that we never made it to the top, this time we are more prepared and we are determined to overcome the challenge. My boyfriend is from Montana so Sara inspired us to try and experiment Friday night with the dozens of huckleberries he brought back from Montana a few weeks ago and make ice cream like you did for your contest. I’m rooting for that one to win and to maybe see the recipe get posted because it looks delicious. Wish us luck :) Thank you for everything you do, you continue to inspire and push me with my culinary skills.

  32. 32
    Bettina says:

    Wow! It’s so nice of you two to have such a generous giveaway. That kitchenaid mixer is gorgeous! I would love to have one of my own.

    My favorite thing about this Friday is that I’ll be spending time with my mom and sister (girl’s day out!) before I’m away from them for another few months.

    I would love to win the 5-Quart Artisan KitchenAid Mixer in any type of blue color. My favorite thing about this Friday is that I get to go to the beach. I live in Southern California and I finally have a Friday with no work, so excited!

  35. 35
    Martha says:

    I would choose the iPod. One if ours shattered, and I’d love a replacement. THIS Friday is awesome because I survived my first week teaching at a new school and loved it!

  36. 36
    Amanda says:

    I would love the le creuset pan! And my favorite thing about this Friday is that I’m not at work! Im vacationing with my sister at my parents home.

    Lauren Harris says:

    You are both so generous to do this giveaway! I would love to have my dream come true, that is seeing a cherry red KitchenAid mixer on my kitchen counter every day. Baking is my “thing I do for fun”, stress reliever, guilty pleasure, and my happy place. This mixer would make my hobby (my euphamism for obsession) an even more enjoyable experience! What is wonderful about THIS Friday is that my co-baker, friend since 7th grade, and college roommate is getting married to her sweetheart! I also get to support her as a bridesmaid! I can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday than seeing your best friend beaming with happiness while looking snazzy and eating delicious reception food. Unless that Friday also involved baking a late night treat using a cherry red KitchenAid mixer… then it would definitely be even better. :)

    AlysonRR says:

    I would love to win the KitchenAid mixer because I don’t think I’ll be able to get one any other way than to win one, LOL. Also, my husband is a techie who will happily drop $$$ for a new phone, I have several (Lodge) dutch ovens, and although I love croissants, I do not think my waistline would appreciate 3 months of them!

  41. 41
    Rachel Henderson says:

    I would love to win the mixer. In a beautiful shade of dark pink, or whatever the closest shade to that is. I have been wanting to take up cookie baking and decorating as a hobby, and this would make it that much more fun. And my favorite thing about this Friday is that I have off work and get to spend one last sunny summer day with my girls before they start school next week!

  42. 42
    Brittany Greene says:

    I would LOVE to win the Le Creuset. It is beautiful. I’m actually really excited for Friday because we are going to see Mary Poppins at the Tuacahn theater in St. George! Thanks!

    Jennie says:

  47. 47
    Jasmine Tang says:

    I would pick the stand mixer because I will be heading off to college and getting my first apartment (this saturday!) and love to bake but cannot afford a mixer of this standard. My favorite and least favorite thing about this friday is that it’s my last day in my hometown with my best friend and we are going to have our idea of a quintessential day together.

  48. 48
    Jasmine says:

    I want the kitchen aid mixer because I don’t have one but love to bake and it will make my life easier! My fave thing about Friday is that I can stay up late and catch up on my shows.

  49. 49
    Andrea says:

    What a lovely idea :) Many thanks for your generosity!

    I’d be over the moon to win the 5-Quart Artisan KitchenAid Mixer in white or black (or any color, really!). Is a kitchen ever really complete without one of these?!

    My favorite thing about this Friday is that I’m fully alive and aware of the seasonal changes today! Fall is just around the corner!

  50. 50
    Cathy says:

    I would love to have a KitchenAid mixer. I still use a handheld I’ve had for at least 30 years. Friday would be cookie day with my grandkids!

  51. 51
    NaDell says:

    I think I’ll say the Ipod. I like them all though!
    My favorite thing about this Friday is that I get to stay home all day with my kids with no errands to run and no grocery shopping to do with all four of them since I did it Thursday night after they went to bed. =)

  52. 52
    Apryl says:

    Hmm… I won’t even tell you how long I debated between these items, but I have to go with my dream to own a KitchenAid Mixer. Next Friday will be my first Friday night off work in such a long time, I can’t decide if I should spend it in yoga pants with Netflix or at Target and a movie. (I live really dangerously.)

  53. 53
    Brynn says:

    I would be extatic about the KitchenAid mixer!! I am super excited to be going to the Davis County Fair with my three kids today. They are going to ride an elephant!

  54. 54
    Jennifer Vinson says:

    I would love to win a KitchenAid mixer! I love to bake, and while my old generic handheld does a good job, it would be nice to upgrade :) My favorite thing about this Friday is that I get to go home and sleep all day!!! In the past two weeks I have worked 112 hours as a 911 dispatcher, and this morning (Friday) I end my 12 hour shift at 6am, get to have the rest of my Friday to sleep and don’t have to go back to work until Sunday night for overtime.

  55. 55
    Natalie Argyle says:

    I would love the 7 1/4-Quart Le Creuset! And my favorite thing about this friday is that my little boy gets to meet his new teacher. He is so excited!

  56. 56
    sarita says:

    oh wow! my favorite thing about this Friday is that I’m heading to NYC with my sisters to see my first Broadway play ON BROADWAY! Cinderella, baby! and I would choose the mixer! thanks ladies!

  57. 57
    Andi says:

    What a generous give away! If I won, I would choose 7 1/4-Quart Le Creuset. It’s one of those dream items that I want for my kitchen. The best thing about this Friday is taht I am going to orientation for new substitute teachers. After a 15 year hiatus, I am going back into the class room!!!

  58. 58
    Jennifer P says:

    What a fun giveaway. So hard to choose but I would love the Le Creuset!!!

    I’ve been waiting for months and Friday it is finally happening!!! I’m getting my carpets cleaned. Hahaha. You have no idea how happy this makes me. Something about fall and freshly cleaned carpets makes my heart sing. Have a lovely weekend!

    This is tough! It’s either the iPod or the mixer…

  65. 65

    I chose the 5-Quart Artisan KitchenAid Mixer.
    Friday’s are the day my family comes home to relax and have fun for a couple of days without the worry of work or school. I plan fun stuff on Fridays. Always a delicious meal to get us in the mood for the weekend.

    Ann C Bartholomew says:

    Wow! Any of those prizes are amazing. My boys would say pick the phone but I think I would pick the Le Crueset! My favorite thing about this Friday is I mowed the lawn yesterday so I don’t have to do it today!

  74. 74
    betty says:

    After some internal debate, I think it comes down to the Le Creuset pot, though the croissants are VERY tempting :) My favorite thing about this Friday in particular is that I just hit the 37 week mark on my first pregnancy! (Hence the temptation of croissants…)

  75. 75
    Jan says:

    The Le Creuset!!! I can see it now in my oven. My favorite part of Frday is knowing supper is always pizza. Easy, peasy

  76. 76
    Tricia says:

    I would love the KitchenAid mixer because I have pretty much worn mine out that I’ve had since college and they didn’t make them in all the PRETTY COLORS that they do now! My favorite thing about this Friday is that it is STILL Summer and my kids still have a few weeks left to enjoy it before school starts!

  77. 77
    Shana says:

    I would LOVE the Le Creuset!!! I’m still trying to figure out if I should just bite the bullet on the one that wasn’t purchased on my wedding registry.

    The awesome thing about today is that it marks the end of my first week as a part-time law student (while working full time), the end of my second week as a wife (!!), and I’ve planned a surprise date night for my husband tonight to celebrate!

  78. 78
    erinmalia says:

    Ooooh, the dutch oven. So awesome. Favorite thing about today? That I woke up and it’s in the 50s. For Maryland in August, it’s a miracle to be sure.

    I would love a kitchenaid! In red… :)

    lynette says:

    I can’t decide between the first three prizes. You ladies are incredible, I so need this!

  86. 86
    Jennifer says:

    It’s hard to choose-but I would most like to win the Le Creuset dish! I would use it multiple times a week.

  87. 87

    What a great giveaway! I would love to win the iPod Touch. My favorite thing about this Friday is my hubby is receiving a months long delayed commission check allowing us to finally pay some bills instead of going deeper in a deep hole.

  88. 88
    Ashley says:

    As much as I would love to say the croissants, I must go with the practicality of the Kitchenaid. I think I’m the only person on the planet who still uses handheld beaters.

    The best thing about today is that we are taking my camel obsessed-yes camel… thanks Geico commercial that I’ve had to watch on YouTube a zillion times (guess what day it is? Guess. What. Day. It. Is.) – to the county fair where they have a camel that you can feed carrots to. She is going to be THRILLED!

  89. 89
    Emilee says:

    I would love the Le Creuset dish. This Friday is bittersweet for me. My oldest starts preschool on Monday, so my favorite thing about today is spending one last lazy weekday with her before she goes to school for the first time.

  90. 90
    Paula says:

    I would love the Le Creuset dish! I am just so grateful it’s Friday, and that this weekend I don’t have to work!

    I would love to have a Kitchen Aid mixer. I’m. spending all day today and all this weekend with my husband. He has been working out of town and he’s home, YAY!!!!

  92. 92
    Hannah says:

    I would choose the le creuset! And my favorite thing about today is that I don’t stay late at work on Fridays so I get to see my husband and stepson more! (It’s tax season) :-(

  93. 93
    Ashley says:

    Camel obsessed almost two year old. See, even the thought of that dang commercial throws me off. Haha. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

  94. 94
    Christine says:

    I am DROOLING over that Le Creuset! And today is going to be fun and, well, crazy, because I run Orientation at a college and we are welcoming the fall athletes!

  95. 95
    Lynness says:

    My favorite things about Friday- this Friday, anyway- is the weather!! Fall seems to have come early in central Virginia! Why on earth do your kids START school on a Friday?! Seems like an invitation to skip it and have 1 more weekend trip together. I’d go for the iPod, I think.

  96. 96
    Sharon says:

    It would be spectacular if I won the KitchenAid mixer, in the robin’s egg blue of course! The best thing about this Friday is my family will be heading to the beach for some fun in the sun.

  97. 97
    Andrea says:

    I would LOVE the Le Creuset! My favorite thing about this Friday is seeing my 15 month olds face in the morning and knowing I get to spend the weekend with him! :)

  98. 98

    My favorite thing about this Friday is my daughter is starting kindergarten and so I’ll be home all day with only my two year old! Hopefully I’ll be able to get a lot done this fall and not be stuck playing Lalaloopsy and watching Dora all day, haha! :) I would LOVE the iPod! Thanks for being such a great blog to read and trying all your recipes has changed my life!!

    My favorite thing about this Friday is Friday night couples golf. Always look forward to it! I would love to win the stand mixer in any color. I would give it to my daughter. Thank you for the chance to win!

    Lori H says:

    I would choose the Le Crueset for sure! This Friday is special because my husband and I are going on a long-overdue date night :)

    Cherie says:

    Wow, you appreciate us enough to give away such a wonderful selection of prizes? There are not words enough to express my appreciation for this blog and your cookbooks. After decades of cooking, I am again enjoying it instead of it just being another task to do each day. Thank you! Why am I grateful for this Friday? That even though I am enjoying cooking again, on Fridays, my kitchen is “closed” and we go out to eat. Yay, no dinner cleanup. That will never be enjoyable. Oh, my choice for a prize? The Le Crueset pot to go along with my renewed joy of cooking.

  104. 104
    Megan J says:

    I would love to win the Le Creuset! Makes me excited for fall and soups. The best thing about this Friday is the Darke County fair. The food is amazing and we always have so much fun (and bring home a few fish!).

  105. 105
    Sarah Price says:

    The stand mixer! Although the croissants came in at a very close second :)
    Today is awesome because my parents are visiting me and my daughter and she’s learned how to say “Nana” and “Grandpa” since their last visit.

  106. 106
    Mary says:

    I’m torn between picking the prize I want for myself and the one I want to give to someone else, but I am going to be selfish and choose the Ipod for myself. The reason being that I am a baker and an avid eater of my baked goods and thus overweight. I’ve been trying to get into shape and yesterday, I actually ran one mile without stopping! I think that Ipod would make running SO MUCH MORE enjoyable. Please pick me! This Friday is awesome because I’m leaving in a bit to visit two of my sisters! It doesn’t get much better than that. :)

  107. 107
    Kelli says:

    I would love the le creuset! My favorite thing about today is the beautiful fall-like weather I will be enjoying with my kids.

  108. 108
    Pamela says:

    This is a tough choice but I have always wanted a piece of Le Creuset to make soups and all kind of goodness. TGIF – just another 10 hours and then the weekend can “officially” start. Get giveaway, you guys are the bestest!!

  111. 111
    Lori says:

    Wow, how generous! I would love the mixer. The one I inherited from my mom finally died. The best thing about Friday? Friday free lunch at the office and, oh yes, it’s FRIDAY!

  112. 112
    Steph says:

  113. 113
    Jerick says:

    This Friday is the first day this week I haven’t had something on my calendar that must be done! Kids are registered for school, school supplies are purchased, PTA faulty breakfast, choir camp… All checked off my list. And I would love the iPod touch! It would make a great birthday present for my daughter, who insists she is the only pre-teen in the world without one.

  114. 114
    Kirra says:

    Well, I would love to say the croissants because they look delicious, but buttery pastries every day for 3 months are the LAST thing I really need, so definitely the stand mixer because I’ve been dying for one for years! And the best thing about this Friday is that my lovely husband is coming homing after being out of town all week for work. Thanks for an awesome giveaway, guys!

  115. 115

  118. 118
    Lauren says:

    I would choose the stand mixer if I’m the winner! My favorite thing about this Friday is that it’s the day before my birthday! At work we get to leave an hour early for our birthday. I will definitely be taking advantage of that one!

  119. 119
    Eileen says:

    I would love the 7 1/4-Quart Le Creuset. This is the pan of my dreams! My favorite thing about today is playing with my friend’s cat that I am watching for the weekend.

  120. 120
    Erin says:

    I would love to win the mixer or the Le Cruset pan (it would be a hard choice!) The best thing about this Friday is I have nothing planned for today and really nothing on my must-do list (well except take care of my kiddos)!!

  121. 121
    Kenna says:

    Ipod or LeCreuset? Not sure which I would chose. But so happy it’s Friday and we have one last weekend of fun before school starts!

  122. 122
    Marie says:

    I would love a Le Creuset.This is such a fun and generous giveaway! My favorite thing about this Friday is the perfect weather we’re having and getting to spend the day outside with my baby.

  123. 123
    Gretchen says:

    I would love the Kitchenaid mixer in that color. Have always wanted one. My favorite thing about this Friday is this absolutely perfect weather in Kentucky. Sunny and cool. And going grocery shopping all by myself :)

  124. 124
    Becki Barker says:

    Oh man! Tough choice! I would love the iPod or the le creuset pan. What a cook giveaway! My favorite thing about this Friday is that it’s pizza night! I just found the most amazing new recipe for fresh sauce straight from the garden. Yum!!!

  125. 125
    Brittany says:

  133. 133
    Lori says:

    This Friday (today) I am going to Fargo to pack up my daughters apartment and BRING HER HOME!! I have missed her. If I won I’d chose the kitchen aid. I need one badly and I think it’s time I owned one :)

  134. 134
    Suzanne says:

    I would love the Kitchen Aid. My favorite about this Friday thus far is that I got a shower without interference from the kiddos! Thanks for the giveaway.

  135. 135
    Ashley says:

    I think I would pick the mixer- I’m not sure! I am excited for Friday because we are going to Cabela’s! :)

  136. 136
    Darsee Vanderloo says:

    My favorite thing about today is that we have nothing to do this weekend! No swim meet or family visits scheduled for the first time since early June! Just me, my husband and our three boys.

    I would have a hard time choosing between the Kitchenaid and the IPod, but if I”m being selfish, I lean towards the Kitchenaid.

  137. 137
    Lindsay Hansen says:

    Today we are going camping as a family. We can’t wait! I would love any of the stellar prizes…especially the mixer!

  138. 138
    carolee c. says:

    I would love the IPod! Then I could pick my own music to use on trips! This is a great Friday because it reminds me that I still have two more Fridays before I have to go back to work!

  139. 139
    Diane says:

    The Le Cruest pan would be amazing! Or perhaps the kitchen aid! Or maybe even the croissants! (although I’m not sure my hips can handle that one…) You guys are awesome for doing this. Love your site!

  140. 140
    Kathryn says:

    My favorite about this Friday is that we’re hosting a trivia night at our church to raise the funds needed for our adoption. We’re almost there!! I would like to win the Le Creuset pan.

  141. 141
    Trish says:

    What a fantastic giveaway! It’s hard to choose, but I think I would have to pick the IPod Touch since my ipod is old and starting to die on me. My favorite part of today is spending time with my sister and her kiddos who are visiting from Virginia!

  142. 142
    Mandy says:

    I would love the mixer. It would be so useful on my kitchen!!

  143. 143
    Melissa says:

    My favorite thing about today is that the weather is cooled down enough to open up the windows and enjoy the breeze! My second favorite thing would be winning the Le Creuset.

  144. 144
    Whitney says:

    My favorite thing about today (Friday) is that I’m 13 weeks pregnant!!!! After trying for 3 years, 2 fertility specialists, and one miscarriage we are finally in the safe zone with this pregnancy!! So excited!
    All the prizes sound amazing, but with fall coming and lots of yummy soups and hearty meals I would love the 7 1/4-Quart Le Creuset!
    Love your blog :)

  145. 145
    Paige says:

    I would love any prize, although the Kitchen Aid would be awesome. Sometimes mine just seems too small! And my favorite thing about this Friday is being that much closer to having my baby…3.5 weeks to go, but who’s counting?? ;)

  146. 146
    Anita Ervin says:

    There is a vacuum in my life that only a le Crueset can fill…

    My favorite thing about this Friday is that I am having a VERY rare “girls night” with some friends and having my 2nd ever sushi experience (that I have been dying for since my 1st taste of the good stuff a month ego).

  147. 147
    carrie says:

    I’d love to win the Kitchen Aid. My favorite thing about this Friday is that my 4 yr. old and I are going to make orange rolls all by ourselves while the other 4 children are in school!! We just might stay in our pajamas to do it, too. Hooray for school starting!

  148. 148
    Jackie says:

    I would love to have that KitchenAid Mixer for my daughter. My favorite thing about this Friday is that it’s cool for a change and we’re expecting some rain – I love rainy days.

  149. 149
    Joni says:

    My favorite thing about today will be my daughter having her first sleepover to celebrate her 9th birthday. It is hard not to get excited when my kids are so excited. :) And I would love to win the Le Creuset. That would be amazing! Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  150. 150
    MSB says:

    Honestly, I can’t figure out which I’d pick! Probably either the Ipod touch or the Le Creuset. If my number is picked, I’ll be more decisive! The thing I love about this Friday is that we’re having cooler weather today than we usually do in August — which gives me joy in knowing that fall is around the corner! And it makes my morning walk so much nicer. Thank you!

  151. 151
    Michelle macreno says:

    I would like the Ipod touch. Im excitedits friday cuz there is our fall festival on main street that I look forward to every year!

  152. 152
    Jennifer K says:

    My favorite thing about today is having a quiet evening at home with my girls and my husband – no big plans, no other people coming over, just hanging out together. I would love the mixer,

  153. 153
    Diane says:

    I would love the Le Creuset-always wanted one! Although all the items gave me pause…I love Friday’s (when I’m not working the weekend!) in the summer weekends off mean long rides on our motorcycle, usually the destination is a beautiful view and a nice place to eat.

  154. 154
    Natalie says:

    My favorite thing about today is I get to work with little kids. I would love the KitchenAid! Thanks!

  155. 155
    Sarah says:

    I would love love the Kitchen Aid mixer! I think I would go with either the Bayleaf color or Blue Willow. I could really finally use a stand mixer after almost 30 years of using a hand mixer! Happy that it’s Friday and I have a whole day of fun projects to do! Getting ready for my first baby boy who will be here in 2 months!!

  156. 156
    Stacey says:

    Kitchen Aid please! The best thing about this Friday is heading to the mountains!

  157. 157
    Erin says:

    The KitchenAid stand mixer is what my heart yearns for! Today is my boyfriend’s birthday and we’re going out to Medieval Madness for dinner and a show! AND I got cupcakes from Crumbs Bakery, um delicious much?

  158. 158
    Rebecca Smith says:

    I would like the Kitchen Aid. I am getting my hair cut and colored today – it is long over due, and that is what I like best about this Friday. :)

  159. 159
    Daun says:

    I am torn — I would LOVE The kitchen aid in that color (its my daughters FAVE!), but I have always wanted a le Crueset (I envision tender, moist roast), BUUUT the iPod would be AWESOME too for my kids– or hubby AND I know a lot of people right now that I would love to cheer up with the croissants by secretly leaving them on their doorsteps with a pick-me up note!

    The best thing about this Friday — it’s the last weekend before school starts and we are headed up for a family trip to the mountains for the weekend. Bring on Fall!

  160. 160
    Katie says:

    Kitchen Aid mixer please! Today my brother’s family is coming to visit. Cousin time!!!

  161. 161

    Saturday is my little girl’s four-year-old birthday party. So Friday I’ll be whipping up cupcakes and a double batch of OBB frosting using my neighbor’s stand mixer! So, I’d love to win a mixer of my own. ❤

  162. 162
    Amy says:

    I would LOVE the Kitchen Aid. We live in a small city apartment, and I didn’t register for one when I got married because of space. Big mistake! This Friday is one of the last few I get to spend with my son before he goes to Kindergarten, so I am savoring my last few days before he becomes a “big” kindergartner!

  163. 163
    Katie says:

    Thank you for sharing the LOVE of cooking and family!! This Friday is the best because it’s the final beach/road trip weekend before school starts back!! I would love to have the mixer. In that blue. With your autographs on the side.

  164. 164
    Connie Tacazon says:

    Would love the kitchenaidmixer. Looking forward to one last bout of camping with the family to celebrate summer.

  165. 165
    Deanna says:

    My favorite thing about today being Friday is that I still have 2 more before my kids head back to school! I love having my kids home! (Although I do love to send them back to school as well!). I would love the iPod touch….I’m behind the times and still don’t have one

  166. 166
    Kris says:

    Going 2 sleep in on Saturday (cross-my-fingers) :) 32 GB 5th Generation iPod Touch

  167. 167
    TTodd says:

    Tough choices-I would love the croissants but that would not be conducive to losing those last 10 lbs of baby weight :) So I would choose the iPod because I have never actually had one and I love music! This Friday we are throwing my little sister a going back to college party. We are sad to see her go, but we are excited for her to start her sophomore year!

  168. 168
    Crystal says:

    I’m thinking either the Kitchen Aid or the Le Creuset. Honestly, all of the prizes look fabulous. My favorite thing about this Friday is that the weekend is almost here & I get to spend the day with my daughter shopping tomorrow. Sad part is that we are getting the last of her college supplies and she’ll be leaving me soon. But I am one proud mamma!

  169. 169
    Emily says:

    I would LOVE to win the Le Creuset pot!!! I have wanted one forever but just can’t bring myself to pay that much, haha! Awesome giveaway :)

  170. 170
    Catherine says:

    Hmm… I’m torn! I think I’d go with the iPod,touch just because we don’t have anything like it and I think my boys would enjoy it, but I’m also eyeing the Le Creuset.

    I love this Friday because my hubby has a 1/2 day, so we’re going putt putt golfing as a family.

  171. 171
    Paige W says:

    The ipod! I love Friday because I get to spend all day with my family!

  172. 172
    Elaine says:

    I would love the ipod for a certain 10year old boy of mine that desparately wants one. What I love about this Friday is that we’ve nothing to do! School supplies and uniforms are bought, teachers have been met, and we get to relax all day before the big first day of school next week!

  173. 173
    Andrea Crocker says:

    I would love to win an iPod! My favorite thing about this Friday is that today my husband and I are leaving on a little getaway (and it’s his birthday)!

  174. 174
    Merrick says:

    I jumped in a river with my iPhone in my pocket and now the touch screen is broken! I need an iPod! :) I’m excited for this Friday because I only have to work until noon on Fridays in the summer!

  175. 175
    Kathryn says:

    This is the first Friday in a looong time where I have no plans. It feels nice. Not sure what I’m going to do with my day but I’ll figure something out. :) I’d love the Kitchen aid! or the Ipod touch would be nice too.

  176. 176
    Melissa E says:

    This is so generous of ya’ll! I would love the mixer! My favorite thing about this Friday is that the cooler weather means hubby and I can go kayak fishing this afternoon!

  177. 177
    Susan says:

    I would love the 7 1/4-Quart Le Creuset. With fall in the air here in Northern Ohio, I am looking forward to the stews and soups I could make in a pot like this! Loving my Friday – the last one before students head back to our campus. Let the madness begin!

  178. 178
    Scott says:

    I’d love the iPod touch.

    My favorite thing about this Friday is that I weighed in this morning at the lowest weight I’ve been at since high school, mostly due to websites like this helping me learn to cook for myself.

  179. 179
    Erin says:

    I would LOVE to win the mixer. We’re in the process of buying a house with 400% more kitchen and the counter is just begging for a mixer.

    I love this Friday because we’re submitting the last of the paperwork for inspections and the new mortgage which will free me up to dive into paint samples and little boy room decorations.

  180. 180
    Stephanie says:

    Le Creuset! Looking forward to time with The Hubs and friends after week with no downtime.

  181. 181
    Dale says:

    I would want to win those croissants! I live in a small town and there is nowhere to get a good croissant around here!!! And my favorite thing about today is that we are heading out of town for a friend’s wedding this weekend!

  182. 182
    Heather G says:

    I would love to win the Kitchenaid mixer! As for my favorite thing about today, I finally got to sleep in today and have a leisurely morning. Granted I work this afternoon and evening, but it is still nice.

  183. 183
    Laura C says:

    I really want that mixer! My favorite thing about this very Friday is that the weather is picture perfect here and will be all weekend!

  184. 184
    jill says:

    I would be happy with any of them…. except maybe the croissants. They would do way too much damage to my diet, so i would choose the ipod.

  185. 185
    Erika Slaughter says:

    I would LOVE to have the new phone!! My phone is on its last leg so that would be great! I’m so excited about Friday because we don’t have a lot of plans and it’ll be nice to relax this weekend.

  186. 186
    Tara Haynie says:

    1. The Le Crueset Dutch oven
    2. This Friday I am crossing off another item on my bucket list and going to my first NFL game. Plus it’s in Kansas City which means awesome BBQ and you can’t go wrong with that.

  187. 187
    Sally says:

    The 5-Quart Artisan KitchenAid Mixer would be wonderful! I love this Friday because I gave my notice to my employers and now the countdown begins…:)

  188. 188
    Julie says:

    NEED a new kitchen aid. My current one is so well-used that the gears are now slipping. My favorite thing about Friday, Aug 16, is I get to make my favorite whole-grain pancake/waffle mix.

  189. 189
    Ashley says:

    I would love the Ipod touch! I think my favorite thing so far for this Friday is that my TB test is negative. Waking up to a dead refrigerator, on the other hand, would not be my favorite.

  190. 190
    Sarah says:

    I would love the Kitchen Aid mixer and my favorite thing about this Friday is that I get to enjoy seeing my friends this evening.

  191. 191
    Lizzy Lou says:

    I would love to win the Stand Mixer, it would look great in the new house my husband and I just bought!!

  192. 192
    Carrie Funk says:

    I think I’d like the croissants, yummy! You guys are the best. And I’m excited its Friday because my kids are already in school and I’m ready for a relax for a day!

    What I love about this Friday is we are having a bonfire with our friends to wrap up the end of summer.

  195. 195
    Anna Marie says:

    I would love to win the kitchen aid mixer! My favortie thing about this friday is that I get to stay home with my husband and cook dinner together. It sounds corny, yes. He just got out of the navy and after four years of a long distance relationship it really makes you appreciate the little things, like being able to prepare and enjoy a meal together.

  196. 196
    Rolinda Tidwell says:

    I reallly, really would Love the mixer ! I have been trying to save up for one for several years. This Friday I am getting ready for my daughter to come home from her 18 month mission in North Carolina, this Wednesday, Yea!

    • 196.1
      Kristin says:

      Rolinda,

      I just read about your daughter and was curious- is she serving a LDS mission? Also, what part of NC? My family are members, and my parents currently live in the NW part of NC :)

      If she isn’t serving an LDS mission, congrats any way on her homecoming!

      • Rolinda Tidwell says:

        Yes, she is serving an LDS mission!!! She is serving in Waxhaw right now. :)

    Sharon says:

    I would love a Le Creuset pan! And, this Friday means that it’s only 1 week until my birthday!

  198. 198
    Jennifer says:

    I would love to have a new le Creuset. I have been wanting the “big one” for a long time. Their pans are the best! I am so glad it is Friday, it has been a rough week getting everyone out the door for school. SO a nice relaxing weekend is in order. Thanks

  199. 199
    Ryann says:

    I would love the mixer. Today is the day after my birthday so I am loving all of the post birthday love I am getting!

  200. 200
    Marie says:

    Wow, those are fabulous prizes! I’m going to go with the croissants, though, because whose day isn’t brightened by crispy, buttery goodness in the morning? If I baked some and brought them into my office one morning, we’d all have a better day!
    I’m excited about this Friday because after work, I’m going to meet a girlfriend for a belated birthday dinner, AND we were able to find a sitter which means my husband gets to meet up with a friend too. And after a fun kid-free night out, I won’t complain when my little guy climbs into my bed too early tomorrow a.m.
    Love your website!
