Anniversary Week - A Couples Giveaway

Well I think that we all knew this day was coming sometime this week didn't we? :) It's kind-of a celebratory week after all, and what's a celebration in the blogosphere without a fun giveaway right? I was thinking lately how giveaway's are a bit like the commercials on blogs, don't you think? haha I mean they can feel like a bit of an interruption to what you really want to be reading and you just kind-of sit back and wait till they're over, unless you like what's 'flashing' on the screen and you decide that yes, you really do want P90x! haha or in this case, yes you really DO want this perfect little date night companion that's really a must-have for all your romantic picnics for all the warm months ahead. It's pretty cute wouldn't you say?
If you're anything like me, (and I'm pretty sure we have a lot in common:)) than you spend as much time as possible outside during the warmer months, and that includes date nights! During the winter it's often times trying to get from a restaurant to the bowling alley to the mall as fast as we can to keep out of the wind and snow, but when it's warm our favorite activities are always outdoors (which usually makes them cheaper too!), and the best of all, are picnics. 
Quality alone time, quality conversation, yummy food to fit our mood, warm breezes and great views (we live in the west:)), it doesn't get any better than that! So for our couples giveaway during our anniversary week, Martin and I wanted to give away this picnic basket from Richmond House to encourage you to get out more these next few months whether it's with your significant other, your family, or some friends! and if you don't really think it's your thing, it would make a great wedding present at the very least.haha Here's the giveaway:
Thanks for visiting today, and I hope that wherever you are that you're having good weather, whatever that may be to you at this moment! For us in the Idaho desert we're just enjoying the first few warm (65-75 degrees fereinheit) days in a row, and that to me says it's officially Spring. We are all SO happy, despite being very sick.haha The kids have total cabin fever and frankly so do I.
I'll be back tomorrow with another fun addition to this little anniversary week series, and I hope you have a great rest of your week ahead!
xo, Emily

  6. we live in florida but never seem to get to the beach. we have vowed to change that this year and are looking forward to our first trip in a couple of weeks. this basket would be awesome!!!!

  7. My fiance and I have been talking nonstop about not being able to wait for hiking now that the snow is gone and the temps are in the pluses. But we also love going to see drive-in movies during the warmer months, taking all our pillows and making a bed fort in the back of the car. So much fun. We even do it when it's colder too, that's how much we love the drive-in. But my favourite winter date would have to probably be going through the syrup runs that are in our area, having hot pancakes and fresh maple syrup on banks of snow.
