eleven, ten, nine.

in meals

did anyone else love writing the date today? 11/10/9. i am such a numbers lover!

i have been working a mile a minute at my office for the past two days.  playing catch up is rough!  needless to say, i am behind on blogs and behind on replies and behind on life in general! sorry!

i still have one more recap post lined up of the foodbuzz festival but i have not had time to write it.  if you haven’t had the chance to check out my previous festival recaps, round one is here and round two is here!

to keep you guys entertained while i work my life away (i am still at the office.. will be until about 7 tonight..sigh) i thought i would host a great giveaway!


if you have been reading my blog for awhile then you know my #1 brand of greek yogurt is oikos made by stonyfield.  not only is their greek yogurt organic.. it is also the best tasting!  i am a plain yogurt eater and so taste is very important to me.  it is hard to get a perfect balance of tangy and tart, but oikos knows what’s up when it comes to incredible greek yogurt and somehow has found that perfect balance.

oikos is hosting a blogger sweepstakes right now~ only those who have a blog may enter.  if you DO have a blog and are interested in entering the sweepstakes, you can check the details out here.  i will be preparing my entry and posting it sometime this month!  the winner will receive a yoga retreat at the kripalu center for yoga & health!

but since i have a lot of readers who *don’t* have a blog of their own and this sweepstakes is for bloggers only, i wouldn’t want you all to miss out on the oikos fun!  the company has generously offered a glorious relaxation prize pack for one of my lucky readers!


gahhh.. this is just what i need right now!  i am in serious need of relaxation!  too bad i can’t win ;)

this pack includes:

  • oikos reusable bag
  • coupons for FREE oikos yogurt
  • the “take- 5” anti-stress spa kit, from earth therapeutics, which includes a loofah massage sponge, anti-stress massage soap, a body brush, anti-stress massage lotion and a soothing gel eye mask
  • a spatula with a pamphlet which has a photo of a girl kissing a cow, from what i can see :)

soooo.. do you wanna win?  here’s how!

  • for your first & mandatory entry leave me a comment on this post telling me your favorite way to unwind and relax!
  • for a second entry follow me on twitter @janeeetha and tweet about this giveaway: “@janeeetha is hosting an oikos na-moo-ste relaxation prize pack giveaway! http://bit.ly/eChxd
  • OR if you don’t have twitter, you can get your second entry by linking back to this giveaway on your own blog. when you link back i will automatically be notified so don’t worry about leaving an additional comment.
  • OR if you don’t have a blog OR twitter you can email me telling me so and i will add a second entry for you.

so there you have it. two entries max per person.  giveaway will end friday, november 13th (spooky!) at midnight!

ohhh kay, now tell me how you relax! and i will sit here at work and cry inside as i read all of your relaxation rituals :)

love and miss everyone! hope my life calms down soon so i can lurk up on all of you ;)

ways to unwind for me at night is actually lie on my coach with my mac to read blogs and big bowl of steamed kabocha! :D easy huh?

Rachel November 11, 2009 at 5:43 am

I love relaxing with a bubble bath, a glass of wine and some music : )

Paige @ Running Around Normal November 11, 2009 at 6:51 am

Awesome giveaway! Sorry you’re working your life away, ick..

My favorite way to relax is watching a favorite show, with a glass of pinot, with my puppy. <3

Chai November 11, 2009 at 6:57 am

I am happiest when I am slightly stressed. I feel.. productive, busy, important! And I like that. But when it gets to be too much… or out of my control, I like to relax by going out for sushi with a close friend and just chatting until they shut the lights off on us :-)

But on a normal day, I like to spend a little down time on my back deck, watching my pups play in the yard. I have a beautiful nature-filled oasis back there! :)

maren November 11, 2009 at 7:33 am

my fave way to relax is to come home to my boyfriend and spend an evening cooking an amazing meal together, drink wine, watch movies :)

Lindsay November 11, 2009 at 7:41 am

My favorite way to relax is to spend time cooking.

Kaytee November 11, 2009 at 7:44 am

My favorite way to unwind is reading. I love these Oikos spa giveaways I’ve been seeing. Super cute.

Graze With Me November 11, 2009 at 7:57 am

The best form of relaxation for me involves a hot tub, some wine and a good book!

Oct November 11, 2009 at 8:24 am

A very hot bath, or better yet soak in a hot-tube, is a way that I love to relax.

luckytastebuds November 11, 2009 at 8:41 am

Hmm one of My favorite ways to unwind is to bake something simple and easy, like granola while playing some music i can rock to. And when the granola is done, I scoop some fro yo into a bowl and top is with the granola! Sit down and enjoy with a favorite person. :) Ta-da!

Ildie November 11, 2009 at 8:43 am

Oh this is easy….. Take a long, hot bath in my over sized tub with a nice glass of wine. I like to enjoy the finer things in life. HA!

Your foodbuzz trip looked like so much fun!

luckytastebuds November 11, 2009 at 8:48 am

Hiiii!! I tweeted ya!

brandi November 11, 2009 at 8:52 am

ooh, Friday the 13th! :)

I love taking a hot bath with a good book.

Angharad (Eating for England) November 11, 2009 at 9:50 am

Oh yay! I love Oikos and I totally cannot afford to spring for it right now…
My favourite way to unwind is with a bath, followed by getting into my amazing sweats and pouring either a glass of wine or making a cup of tea…and curling up with the kitties!

Alicia November 11, 2009 at 10:09 am

I love to knit. Knit while I watch tv, on my lunch break, in the car, anywhere and anytime. I find it incredibly soothing. It’s such a mathematical experience and I just love that it’s always balanced!!!

hopefulrunner November 11, 2009 at 10:24 am

My favorite way to relax and unwind after a long day at work, or a really long run is on my couch…in my sweats…with a hot cup of tea. It’s my fav!
Have a great day!

Jenny November 11, 2009 at 10:56 am

girl I eat oikos like it’s my job — I totally wanna win this giveaway (esp. for the girl kissing the cow photo ;) )

Jenny November 11, 2009 at 10:57 am

how am I not already following you on twitter? you bet your a$$ I fixed that.

mary-kate November 11, 2009 at 10:59 am

i just like to get in bed with a book… especially one i’ve already read before and love. :-)

Cellabella November 11, 2009 at 11:02 am

Definitely with a good book as well. Nestled on the couch with a hot mug of milky tea :)

Liz23 November 11, 2009 at 12:11 pm

I love to get on the computer and read blogs of course!!! I also like to read to unwind!

Michelle November 11, 2009 at 3:12 pm

Hey girl! Ideally, a nice massage would be my favorite way to relax. Too bad those pretty much never happen lol. Curling up on the couch in cozy sweats with a good book or TV show is another great way :)

Tay November 11, 2009 at 4:45 pm

Just zonking in front of the TV! Nothing like mindless TV watching after a long hard day ;-)

Hillary November 11, 2009 at 6:28 pm

Yum – Greek yogurt is the bomb : )


Anne November 11, 2009 at 8:27 pm

haha, I didn’t even notice that date. And the relaxation package is too cute! My favorite way to relax is a massage, for sure :)

Michele | aka Raw Juice Girl November 11, 2009 at 9:21 pm

I followed you and tweeted (from @RawJuiceGirl)


Kathleen November 12, 2009 at 4:40 am

my favorite ways to unwind are: coffee and baking, OR yoga and walks. it all depends on what kind of unwinding i need :)

eatolive November 12, 2009 at 7:11 am

it sounds weird but when i used to run, that would be my relaxtion. a nice clean, crisp day, a good relaxed run, looking at all the scenery, listening to the tunes my ipod pumped out, not worrying about pace or distance & just clearing my head. it was the best!

now, i usually just take some time to myself, listen to music, or read blogs in bed :)

Melinda H. November 12, 2009 at 8:43 am

Ohhh I love to snuggle up on the couch and read a good book. I look forward to this sooo much! ;)

Fun giveaway!

elise November 12, 2009 at 10:28 am

Reading magazines and sipping wine is my favorite way to relax!

Emily (The Experimentarian) November 12, 2009 at 8:25 pm

Oh dang, i almost missed this post! I am so behind in my reader right now! Fave way to relax= make dinner, read a book, take a hot shower, say my prayers and go to bed. Best evening ever.

Lara (Thinspired) November 13, 2009 at 8:44 am

Me, me! I want it!
I relax by making lists :) Sometimes it helps. Sometimes it stressed me out more when I see all I have to do!

Lara (Thinspired) November 13, 2009 at 8:44 am

P.S. I tweeted :)

Annie November 13, 2009 at 8:58 pm

My favorite way to relax is going on a stroll with my dog outside…especially early fall, that’s the perfect weather!

Sweet Cheeks November 14, 2009 at 2:20 pm
