Today is the last day to enter the Best Giveaway Ever.

(Edit: There was an issue with people accessing the page yesterday, so I’m leaving it up another day.)

Sadly for you, Henry won’t be in there. He is too cute, and I’m going to keep him. But if the box really were to have all of my favorite things, Henry’d definitely be included.

I’d also include: a kabocha squash, my dSLR camera, scrapbooking supplies, and many of these:

Why hello there, Ultimate Fudge Brownies.

Sound good?

Well then, I regret to inform you that my “favorite things” box wouldn’t be complete without: a pair of dirty running shoes, a bowl of mushy oatmeal, and some smelly steamed broccoli.

Oh, and a container of garlic-y Crazy-Good Ranch Dressing.

Question of the Day:

What would be in the contents of your “favorite things” box? 

Peanut butter? Chocolate cheesecake? Your old retainer? Wait, maybe I don’t wanna know…

      And then goes back to make some air holes… 🙂

      Ooh you know what Friends episode that reminds me of???

      1. HA!

        “The meaning of the box is threefold. One, it gives me time to think about what I did. Two, it proves how much I care about Joey. And three…it HURTS!”

        Oh man, I need to get a LIFE! 😛

        1. Yes!! You knew! I knew you knew!

          I know. I know you know. I know you know I know.

  8. Freya says:

    Mine would have to be huge – it’d have to fit parsnips, kabocha, and my HORSE! Not sure she’d fit in a regular box :s
    I think I’d have to throw in Channing Tatum too. He’s a Favourite Thing, fo’ sho’ :p

    1. He came to my high school! Sadly it was after I graduated… 🙁

  9. Is Henry a newcomer to your house? So cute!

    I am not sure what would go into my box… Chocolate, and my husband, to start!

    1. Nope lol he has been around a while! I rescued him for my 18th birthday :).

  10. Stephanie says:

    My favorite things box would have peanut butter, chocolate covered sunflower seeds, cereal (I love it all), fashion magazines, gum, nail polish, a swimming pool (?), boat shoes, an ipod full of country, iced tea, and a sexy man of course.

  12. Jennyb says:

    My gym card would need to be there, although its actually on my keys/keychain so i’m never without it!

    A tub of Options Hot Chocolate (a UK low calorie hot choc powder), Mandarins/Clementines (i eat so many of these) & my laptop.

    I think i could survive anything with these 4 items,

  13. I’d definitely put my puppy in my box too 🙂

  14. Alison says:

    Nothing incredibly original in mine…my cats and my rabbit, Dunkin Donuts iced coffee with coconut (and lots of it!!), a big bowl of udon and idaho maki, Wayne’s World and Sex and the City on dvd, spinach smoothie with various fruit and coconut greek yogurt, roasted vegetable pizza, roasted asparagus, sweet potato anything, various Japanese desserts from the bakery I worked in back home, my ipod, anything chocolate (including my favorite Endangered Species chocolate bar that they stopped making…the Panda Dark and White chocolate bar…as it would be in production exclusively for my box), and a starbucks iced latte for when I was in the mood for a latte instead of iced coffee…haha. I’m missing all of this stuff tons ever since moving across the pond!

    1. I heard that they’re going to be coming out with new flavors of the ES chocolate! Hoping it’s chocolate coconut!!!

      1. Alison says:

        NEW FLAVORS?! Oh man, chocolate and coconut would be so good!! Or chocolate and peanut butter…mmm. You’ll have to keep me posted, haha:)

  15. KJ says:

    My box would have…cocoa almonds, B&J NY Super Fudge Chunk, my Kindle, Angry Birds (live, in person, so I can sling them at pigs that annoy me), yoga pants, and a killer coconut margarita from El Tiempo! YUM!

    1. Angry Birds lol… can you believe I’ve never played it?!

  16. hmm let’s see…

    chocolate, my mom’s indian food, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, my running shoes, my skis, some good books, camera, ipod…and sweet potatoes 🙂

  17. Angela McCluskey says:

    an endless supply of peanut butter, a spoon, tons of dairy free chocolate and my mom 🙂 (ps: tmw is her bday and she asked me to make her your blueberry pancakes!! and shes not even vegan!)

    1. Oh wow, that pretty much made my week! Tell her happy birthday for me!!!

  18. Andrew Smith says:

    If I had a boxful of favourite things I would have to have in it: Oats, Almond Butter, my Vibram Five Fingers (for running and stuff) my ipod and a laptop/computer/tablet thing with your blog saved on the bookmarks page 🙂 oh, and lots of coffee! I couldn’t go a day without those things that’s for sure

    1. Awwww!!
      I’ve never tried those Vibram things, but they intrigue me so much!

      1. Andrew Smith says:

        Vibrams are awesome, although I must warn you that if you invest in a pair they will be involved in your next magical giveaway. You will be hooked 🙂 They are so weird at first but once you get use to them normal shoes just can’t cut it 🙂 Thanks for the amazing content by the way, your blog is seemingly more amazing with each post 🙂

        1. I’m afraid to make the expensive investment in case I don’t like them… also, I have weird feet! I’m an underpronator, and I don’t want to mess with anything and end up injured. But I really would love to try the Vibrams out!
          And your comment put a huge smile on my face :).

          1. Andrew Smith says:

            I must say I am so happy that I put a smile on your face, it is literally the least I could do for someone who puts countless smiles on countless faces each day, myself included 🙂 Also, I got my vibrams to fix a postural issue, I was slouching badly and by wearing them I was forced to correct my spinal alignment and my pain went away after about a week, great investment for me but I was probably a lucky one 🙂
            P.S Sorry to consistently block up your server with my comments, I know how busy you are 🙂

          2. Are you kidding me?! I love comments. One of my favorite parts of blogging is connecting with like-minded people!

  19. Katie Westbrook says:

    My favorite books, broccoli bags, my waffle maker, my new running shoes and my childhood blanket! All very essential to my well being!

  20. Tara says:

    I think I’d love to win your real box 🙂 smelly broccoli sounds good to me!
    Mine would include a donut pan (with donuts too!), a garmin, ice cream, eggplant cooked perfectly, an alter-g treadmill, a pair of nike tempo shorts, the hunger games trilogy, and new rules of lifting for women!
