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…

    hmm..anything beachy, some dresses from Kohls, lots of books, including Gone with the Wind, The Mark of the Lion Series, and some others, and ice cream, and chocolate, and watermelon, and pineapple, and cocnut, and starbucks passion tea lemonade, and this list is getting too long so I guess I’ll have to stop 🙂

PB, sunflower seed butter, KashiGoLean cereal, Pistachios, Fage/Chobani yogurt, all vegtables, Larabars, running gear, Itunes cards, several sets of headphones (since mine die so quickly!), and TONS of fruit. I’ll stop there, don’t want to bore you 😉

  6. 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

  7. 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.

    Now that made for an awesome day dream. 🙂

  8. Amy says

    My list is a lot like Alex’s list, but I’ll share anyway. I’d have: peanut butter(LOVE IT), dark chocolate, bananas, spinach, greek yogurt, oatmeal, fudge babies, running sneakers, IPOD, great sunglasses, and a fleece blanket. =)

  9. 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,

  10. 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!

  11. 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!

  12. 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!)

  13. 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

      • 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 🙂

        • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

          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 :).

          • 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 🙂

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

  16. Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles says

    Wine, chocolate, CHIA SEEDS (thanks to you!), running shorts, a margarita or three, red high heels, and …….So, the list could go on and on and on! Those would actually fit in a box; the husband, mom and dad, sister, and nephew would be all handled with care 🙂

  17. [email protected] of Sugar Free says

    Loads of peanut butter, unsweetened chocolate, sweet potatoes with cinnamon, sugar-free fudge brownies, bananas!, chocolate mint smoothies, fresh mangoes and watermelon, tennis racquet, some fun gel-pens! 😀 😀

  18. Katherine says

    Haha, this is fun! Mine would have a big tub of plain Greek yogurt, raw honey, a jar of Dark Chocolate Dreams, fresh spinach, tabbouleh and falafel, my to-go blender (you can detach the jar and use it as a to-go cup! it’s fantastic), my super-fluffy down comforter, my hiking shoes, Mrs. Dalloway, River of Gods (a great sci-fi novel, for those who like that sort of thing), crazy holiday-themed socks, my purple workout clothes, and maybe my boyfriend, though he’d probably eat all of the falafel. 😉

  19. Katie @ Nutrition in a peanut shell says

    In my box would def be some brownies, vitatops, chicken (sorry vegetarians!), peanut butter, my laptops +charger +power source, a good book, oh, and more peanut butter!

  20. Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) says

    –>YOU!! Haha when I read the title of the post that literally was my first thought! Man I’m a creep! 😛
    –>Your pancakes, which I am making TOMORROW!! 😀 I’d put ALL your recipes in actually!
    –>Henry. And Buddy.
    –>Running shoes.
    –>Nut Butter.
    –>You again.
    –>Friends boxset.
    –>My computer, so I can read your blog 24/7 (are you sensing a theme here? 😉 )


  21. Lyza says

    No way in heck!!! I am not entering your giveaway!! LOL I’d gain 30 pounds in a week! (plus I already won one…and that would just feel extremely greedy for me O.O)

    The only way I’d enter another one of your giveaways is if you offered Henry to me, and that ain’t happening!!!!

    I love broccoli 🙂 My box would have baked sweet potatoes (heaven!), a mixture of blueberry jam and spicy brown mustard that makes something that tastes exactly like heinz (in my opinion), which is yep, totally inspired by your healthy ketchup recipe (I’m just lazy and it happened to work out for me 😛 ), my ballet shoes, the book “The Mists of Avalon,”, the book, “The Pillowbook of Cordelia Kenn,” green tea, lavender essential oil, roses, pressed flowers, prosetry, pre-rafaelite paintings, a fabulous swimming suit and cruelty free sunblock, my reuseable shopping bags made of recycled billboard along with my reuseable produce bags, my environmentally friendly house cleaner, eco friendly detergent ingredients, ribbons, bows, a lavender colored silk scarf, the film, “White Oleander,” and quite possibly the book too, mirado black warrior pencils with any kind of paper, a lilac candle that i never use because i love it so much and don’t want it to burn out, and absolutely tea tree oil bar soap!!

  22. Aine @ Something to Chew Over says

    Great question! My box would include almond butter, my favourite books, workout gear, laptop, berries, chocolate, fudge, oats…

    And if I’m including living things, then also my boyfriend and two gerbils! 🙂

  23. Katie says

    Peanut butter cookies, a pina colada, a BlendTec, my yoga mat, my husband’s homemade guacamole, and my mini schnauzer and boxer 🙂 Oh yeah, and my husband, so he could make that guac fresh!

  24. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga says

    I love the pic of the brownie + cookie dough!

    My ultimate box would also have my DSLR in it. And chocolate. Chapstick, running shoes, comfy clothes, and if I could fit Skylar in the box, I would 🙂

  25. ~Jessica~ says

    Hmm, running shoes, Garmin (wishful thinking with two stress fractures *grumble*), Sun Warrior (can’t leave home without it lol), my laptop, canvases, acrylic paint, peanut flour, cacao powder, a blender…I certainly wouldn’t be travelling light in terms of my box!


  26. Grace @ gracelits says

    My box would have honey roasted peanut butter, my cat Bellatrix, chocolate, a Lisa Genova book, a notebook or three, my bible, scented candles, and Burts Bees hair products. 🙂
