Congratulations to KK @ Running Through Life! Hope you enjoy the chocolate as much as I did!


---CONTEST CLOSED---


Pheww! Mama needs a break!






With four, VERY active, 1.5 yr old quadruplets...I sometimes find myself in need of a relaxing getaway---or at least some serious "chocolate therapy". (I know you other moms know EXACTLY what I'm talking about!)



So when BlogHer approached me with a review involving CHOCOLATE TASTE TESTING--(yes folks, you read that correctly)--I was not about to pass on this delightful opportunity. What better reason to fudge on that New Year's resolution, right?! A big box of M&M's new Premium Chocolates arrived at my door and I thought I was in heaven.

I enlisted the help of several- MORE THAN WILLING -volunteers: My beautifully pregnant sister-in-law and older brother (both of whom are self-proclaimed "Chocoholics")---and we immediately began the arduous task of evaluating these stylish new candies. ;)
(Hey...its a tough job...but somebody's gotta do it, right?!)

Having never seen these deluxe candies, I was immediately smitten with the dazzling array of jewel-toned colors. (How incredibly fun?!) And as I bit into each morsel of chocolately goodness, I let my mind wander to various thoughts and places. The following is my personal experience with these fab new flavors.


Mocha

Warm, comfy, cozy...I'm curled up in a ball, listening to the soft crackling of the fireplace, drinking a soothing Vanilla Latte, with a good book-in-hand. I LOVE that the Mocha chocolates taste like chocolate covered Espresso beans, without having to break your teeth! The invigorating burst of coffee flavor will awaken your taste buds...I could only eat two or three at a time--which is GREAT! Usually all I need is a small nip of something sweet and I'm good to go. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!


Raspberry Almond

Hip, stylish, confident...Its GIRL'S NIGHT OUT, ladies! Throw on your high heels and lets go hit the town! With a package of M&M's Premium Raspberry Almonds in my clutch, I am feeling fabulous and ready to have some fun! The dark chocolate and raspberry combination was easily my favorite (if not for the sparkling hot pink color alone!)--and throw an almond in the mix as well?--UH-MAY-ZING! I confess, I could NOT stop at just 2 or 3 of these almonds...I think I may have found my new favorite affordable luxury!


Chocolate Almond

Fun, spontaneous, exciting...Its movie/game night with Joe and the kids! We pop in our favorite DVDs, play games- laughing until it hurts, make some buttery popcorn, and snack on these smooth milk chocolate almonds throughout the night. I am pretty sure I could eat an entire box in one sitting. I have always been a sucker for any chocolate covered almond--so, its almost like the other guys didn't stand a chance! I also loved the brilliant blue color of the almond...a sure way to spice up any bland party!

Triple Chocolate

Hmmm...I couldn't quite put my finger on it. I think I was expecting the hard crunchy outer shell of an M&M and was surprised to find a silky smooth piece of chocolate. At first I dismissed the Triple Chocolate M&M as your average chocolate candy...but the more I ate, the more I couldn't restrain myself! The unique blending of 3 deluxe chocolates (dark, milk, and white) created a rich taste that I began to crave at all hours of the day. You'd better watch yourself, because these will sneak up on you, and before you know it---the entire box is gone!
Who me?...No! I'm just sayin'...it COULD happen...(wink)

Mint Chocolate

Cool, brisk, refreshing...I feel alive- soaking in the fresh, crisp, mountain air reviving my soul. I'm relaxing in a rustic cabin, listening to a babbling brook, savoring every second of the mint chocolate morsel that is dissolving in my mouth. Perfect solution for an after-dinner treat to cleanse the palette. These candies remind me of dark chocolate covered peppermint patties--However, I prefer the M&M's Premium Mint Chocolate goodies because they are made of WHITE chocolate infused with mint and covered with a soft, dark chocolate exterior---an amazing taste combination all wrapped up in perfect miniature spheres of delight.

To learn more about these tasty treats, you can visit the M&M website!

I had SO much fun, closing my eyes and dreaming of fun places. It is truly amazing where your mind can take you! So lets have some fun with it, shall we????

I would go to Disneyland and ride all the rides all by myself! I wouldn't have to worry about strollers or anything! I can dream :)

Kristine Gray said...

I would spend the day on a warm white sand beach. The water would be sparkling blue and clear with a gentle breeze blowing. My husband and my twins would be there and we would play, lie in the sun and water, and laugh together. There would be no laptops, iphones, or any other way the outside world could intrude on our time as a family.

Alissa said...

You know when you get together with family for a holiday things are always rushed, and there are so many things to do that the whole things becomes one big blur? I think we need a day (it should be a national holiday) where there are no separate traditions, where the only food consumed is takeout, where everyone is forbidden from washing dishes and all we have to do is sit around and relax, eat and just enjoy the day.

Kriss said...

Since I have three children..... I would indulge myself by going to a B&B alone and SLEEP!!!
krissriley@sbcglobal.net

Natalie said...

well, lets see...

i would start my day with coffee and chocolate!

i would then spend the day on a warm beach...

i would have a diet dr pepper and more chocolate after lunch!

i would curl up with my hubby and watch a great movie...

well, that is all i am going to tell! :-)

cbryant81 said...

Only one day...I would start by falling on my knees and thanking God all of my wonderful blessing in this life, then i would spend everymoment after that with my family and friend letting them know how truly loved they are not only by me but an unfailing God above!

The Kearns Family said...

Hmmm...I would have to say spending it with my husband and kids in the mountains, but stealing a few hours to myself to go shoe shopping with an unlimited amount of money! Lyn

Lina said...

I would start with a 2 hour massage and a facial, oh yeah! A great meal of sashimi, gomae, agedashi tofu, with a great ending of fresh cut fruit. I would then take a nice stroll with some iced espresso and the weather would be 75 and sunny! Then I would take a nap with some hot sexy guy and then I would go shopping and have a ridiculously great night of gourmet food, dancing, and libations. I would then fall asleep and wake up to find that I won gazillion bazillion dollars and could do this EVERY DAY! A girl can dream can't she?!?!

Tammy said...

I would spend the day shopping for some killer high heels just like yours. I might even take my teenage daughters. Where did you buy them?

tinasly said...

sitting on the couch watching what I want on the tv sounds boring but with a husband and four kids this is something I never get to do

Allison said...

I would ride all the great roller coasters in the world... with no wait in line, of course!

Anya said...

I would spend the day outdoors (in 70 degree temperatures) with my family. Thanks for the chance.

Pamela S. Wade said...

Wow! What a great giveaway! If I had one day to do what I want..hmmm..well, with 8 kids from 27 down to almost 3, and all of them still at home, I would wish for one day to be at home ALL BY MYSELF! There is always someone here! I would love to just listen to the QUIET!!! I love my big family but it would be so heavenly to just be by myself for just a bit and do whatever I wanted all day long without interuption! ~~Pam

Fun contest!

Real Simple said...

hi from florida...I would spend the day doing what my family enjoys the most...i would ask my 24 year old...and then my 16 year old (both girls) and then my husband....and i would enjoy, enjoy, enjoy those moments with each individual person...as each are a gift from God and it would be the best day to hang with my family with NO INTERRUPTIONS doing fun and crazy things! laughing and lots of hugging! simple...but as a 50 year old mom...your children grow up fast and mine will both be leaving the nest about the same time...I LOVE, LOVE my girls (and hubby) Praise God they know Him!
thanks!

marie said...

If I had a whole day to myself I would spend it on a beach on Hawaii getting surf lessons during the day. Then, at night, I'd take a sushi dinner cruise w/ DH and watch the sunset.

I've never even been to Hawaii, and I don't know if they have sushi dinner cruises, but hey, it's MY dream day, so I'll dream!

Jessica said...

I would go on an Adventure! of epic proportions.

I'd go to that diamond park in whatever state it is, where you can mine your own diamonds.

I'd go back to the drive-through safari.

Ah... So many Adventurous things to do!

BookMama said...

I'd do all the things I enjoy but don't get to much because of kids and work! Scrapbook, sewing, reading with a nice hot chocolate and M&Ms (really!) to much on ...

Lauren said...

Hmmm...with a baby on the way, my day of indulgence would include my hubby and I lounging on the bech in Hawaii just talking to each other and enjoying being together, because from what I've been told, our alone time with decrease once the baby gets here!

Marthavmuffin said...

Sleep in, eat chocolate, have Lobster for lunch, spend time with my family and BLOG!!

ashley.star said...

At first, I thought I had to choose how I'd spend my LAST day. And I was all, "With lots of family! My husband! My friends!"

Then I realized it was just any old day. So:

I would lounge in front of the television, stuffing myself with Starbucks lattes and Candy Cane Joe Joes as I watch all the talk shows I miss while I'm at work. All by myself.

:)

It would have to be a day of diet vanilla coke to wash down sweet and sour chicken.

Anything and everything... I'd grab my husband and we'd go on a whirlwind international cooking adventure. We'd make a traditional breakfast in Costa Rica, a stunning lunch in Spain, head to the UK for teatime and learn to make dinner in France. And, then we'd head off to Italy for dessert. We'd learn to cook all sorts of interesting things along the way and have a lifetime's worth of memories from it.

About Me said...

If I could do anything in just one day. I would take my husband, daughter and soon to the Phillippines. I would show them were I was born and show them where they are too from. I would search for my birth family. And since I would just have one day, I would tell my birth mother how much I thought of her everyday of my life and that even though we were miles apart, she still had a place in my heart. And that yes, even though you gave me up for adoption, she still holds a special place in my heart. Same with the rest of my birth family father where ever he maybe. ...so yes, that's what I would do.

Leah said...

I would spend a day either on a Caribbean beach or touring Paris...either would be amazing!!

Thanks!

Brooke said...

Great contest! Love your review and all your pics. M&Ms are my absolute fave chocolate (okay, aside from Cadbury, but over here it's made by Hershey's and it's just not the same).

A day to indulge... I'd wake up at home in Australia, and spend the day with my family, who I haven't seen in almost 3 years. They haven't seen our oldest since he was a newborn and have never met our newest addition.

My days are spent indulging myself with alone time so if I had a fantasy I would want to put in a favorite movie in my dvd player and snuggle up with those I love most while sharing the delicious and indulging flavors of these delicate m&m's.~Darlene

CaraqueƱa said...

Wow...my perfect day would definitely include the raspberry-dark chocolate mms, maybe even all of the varieties! I'd have to put them in ice though, b/c I would first be headed for the beach in Venezuela with my husband (and kids :) )! Then...we would all hop on a plane and head to Seattle to see my sister (more chocolate needed when we get there, of course)! Finish the day by a crackling fire, preferably in a hotel, with the mocha mm's. It would be nice if it continue the next day.... :) (breakfast in bed, with say, some mm's ?) Have a good one!

icefairy said...

The best way to indulge myself is to get enough sleep!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

Sitting in a snowy cabin, not exercising and snuggling up with my husband and baby under a blanket while watching the snow fall. What a dream.

Mandy said...

Wow a whole day to do anything I wanted....believe it or not, it would be to take my kids on vacation. I am a single mom and we have never had the luxury of going out of town, staying in a hotel and seeing the ocean! Then I would take them to see all the amazing sights and truly experience all that a family vacation entails. Maybe someday! I tell you what though, some M&Ms and a cup of coffee would do me pretty well too. I have been really wanting to try the raspberry ones. Chocolate, raspberries and almonds all in one candy. I think I would be in heaven!

Kristin said...

New to your blog, but love it already!

On my perfect day, I'd gather all my friends who I met through infertility, and take them and their husbands and children (which in my perfect day, they would all have by now) and we'd head to the beach! Oh, and we wouldn't have to worry about sunblock at this perfect day beach! Of course, there will be full bar and food service at this beach as well as spa amenities for all!

scargosun said...

I would sit on the beach in East Dennis Cape Cod MA with my favroite book a bottle of wine and some really good cheese. It would be fall and I would be wrapped in a sweater and have blankets available. I would read and snooze, read and snooze and enjoy the world around me.

I LOVE those new M&M's!

nightowl said...

I would like to sleep in past 7:30
and then order a catered breakfast and spend the rest of the day at the beach.

Lola said...

A day to do anything...*sigh* I would definitely sleep. Since becoming a mother, sleep is what I miss most. :) I know, dream big, right? ha ha

Tamara B. said...

If I had one day I would fly to a beautiful island and bask in sun while sipping on Mai Tais.

Holly said...

I would sleep in late (with a two year who has yet to sleep through the night this is a must). Then wake up and breakfast would magically be made, there would be no messes all day long, no pet hair to pick up. Just a relaxing day with the fam!

Donna and Greg said...

I would take my husband and fly off to Hawaii and spend the day laying on the beach and sipping margaritas.
Our 7 blessings would survive for a day!

Pampering myself must mean different things for different people. For me, pampering would be having the opportunity to whitewater raft in Australia...surrounded by wildlife and out in nature. What better way to soothe the soul? Oh, and pass the M&M's! Green has always been my favorite...and now they're MINT too!

Jeanette said...

If I could indulge myself in anyway it would be a quite please with sand and a beautiful hotel that no other people were at except my family and the hotel staff. So I could spend time with my children and not have to stop to go to my doctors or therapy. I love to spend time with them but between appt., cleaning house, and cooking I know I don't spend enough time with them and that bothers me. And when they are asleep since other people took care of me and my family I would be able to spend time with my wonderful hubby. Thanks for the great giveaway. Jeanette

Lindsey said...

What a fun job you had... I love the theme pictures.

My ideal day...hmmmm
sleeping in, coffee in the morning and then a late morning park date with my son and husband. I would then want to be at the beach in the late afternoon. My favorite time of day at the beach is 3:00ish till the sunsets. Beautiful colors and great for taking pictures. I would want to go out for yummy pizza with my boys. Thanks for the fun contest.

Jen said...

I would run away with my husband to some little B&B nearby (not spending too much time driving) and hide from everyone, leaving the computer, phones and everyone else behind!

cherio1 said...

Wow, if I had just one day, I would take all of my grandkids and spend the day at a huge theme park indulging their every wish and whim!!!!

Bonggamom said...

I would indulge in a spa day with my husband at the Indian Springs resort in Calistoga, CA. We'd swim in the heated mineral water swimming pools, get mud treatments, eat wonderful food, drink wine, and just relax and enjoy each other. Bliss!!

Uncommon Blonde said...

Just one day? j/k I would go out for brunch and then to the spa for a massage and a pedicure. Then I'd garb a book and a margarita and read/nap in the sun. Relaxing and eating whatever I want for the rest of the day!

Idaho Quilter said...

I would have my children, grandchildren & great granchildren, all over for a catered dinner. Hell I don't want to cook.

Robyn said...

I would indulge myself by going to a spa and not worrying about how much it costs!

LisaJo said...

A perfect day ...... Mmmmmm :-)
I would spend it with my husband and our 3 year old grandson (who we are raising) relaxing at the zoo. Bracken would not be throwing any of his little 3 year old fits and my husband would not be losing his cool due to the shows we get from Bracken. Know any 3 year olds who don't have their temper tantrums about the smallest things ?????? It'll never happen but it sounds good.

Julie said...

I would sleep in! I would cook my spaghetti carbonara for a lover, lounge in bed giggling about dumb stuff and reading books. I'd end the day with a night by the fire.

Mom said...

Suzanne

Im entering this contest for my daughter.

http://wilddreemer.blogspot.com/.

Im not a blogher but since I do read hers I always click on her adds to help her out with a little cash and this is how I found you. I showed her your contest and all she could say was when mom! when do I have time. To her bloging is like reading a good book.

I know if my daughter had one day to pamper her self it would be to just get to set at home for one day with no kids or husband and good cup of coffee curl up on the couch and blog. Since getting married, having kids and a full time job it seems she gets less time to do what she really loves best and that is to blog. She tells me she hardly has time to respond to everyone and to read all the blogs she used to and to comment on them all. Oh and did I mention she love M&M’s and would love to have it show up at her door.

Thanks Mom

Emily said...

Love the post! I gotta get me some of that chocolate!!
My day of indulgence would be on the beach and at the spa at The Grand Sunset Princess Resort in Playa de Carmen Mexio (check it out!) with my hubby and NO kids. Love em, but love time without em too!
EmilyBYU@gmail.com

Ellen said...

My perfect day would involve sleeping late and then spending the day on the couch watching horror movies. Cheetos and bourbon might be involved at some point. Chocolate definitely would be.

Susan said...

Great question! I would sleep. It's sad but true.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Wellers said...

One perfect day....I would spend the entire day with my husband and my son. We would play in bed, then go out and enjoy the day by taking a walk, or spending time up at the lake. Enjoying just doing NOTHING....not worrying about work, money, weight and all the other things we all worry about too much

Sue Brown said...

For my day...I would load up, go to the river or lake and sit up my lawn chair, bait my hook on 2 rods. secure them in the holders and then get a good book and just sit there in the spring sun and wait for the fish...catfish, crappie or bass to come along and take my bait with no effort on my part...Then when I was tired of that I would load up and go home to clean the basket load of fish that I caught....cinderyela@yahoo.com

Mom24 said...

I would definitely sleep in. Then, I would go to the spa, have a haircut I love (for a change) the perfect haircolor, a manicure and pedicure. I would go to Barnes and Noble and buy whatever books I wanted for myself, my kids and my hubby. I would go home to a spectacularly clean house, laundry done, my children playing happily and my husband in a wonderful mood from having spent the day entertaining our kids. We would head out for a night on the town--dinner and a movie while the kids have a fun evening at home, watching movies, playing Wii and eating pizza.

Magpie said...

I'd sit in the hot tub, and then get a massage.

Nicole said...

If I could do anything....First thing is I wouldn't have to go to work! My husband wouldn't have to go to school for the day. We could get up and eat breakfast as a family and then have the entire day to do whatever we want. Of course I would have time for a nap somewhere in the day, and a nice long bath since I never get alone time!

This could only happen in perfect world!

greetingarts said...

Take the family to High Tea at McKenzie Childs in New York City, go skating at Rockefeller Center, stand at the top of the Empire State Building at night!

Well with the week I had, that perfect day would be a day of sleep and being pampered in bed! Then some more sleep.

Valeen said...

I would spend the day surrounded by my family up in the mountains and having the chance to tell each one of them how much I love them and what they've meant to me!

Olive said...

Well, if I could to ANYTHING, I'd want to see my dad.

He died 3 years ago of a rare cancer at he age of 53. I miss him a ton and when he was sick I was terrified of everything that was happening so I think that prevented me from "just being" with him. We all wanted to say what we needed to, and we all wanted to do things for him as he needed, but the "being" was hard beacuse it was so gruesome and awful to watch.

And, I just miss talking to him everyday and asking him things that only dads can answer. I constantly find myself wanting to call him about things that I know he would know or could answer for me.

I hope someday, if I get married, having a husband will lessen that need and desire, but for now, I still miss my dad everyday, so yeah, I'd want to see my dad for a day. :) Thanks!

DMarti2620 said...

If I had ONE day to do ANYthing and EVERYthing in the world I wanted to do, I would you indulge myself by getting a complete makeover... hair, makeup, nails, new clothes...just like you see happen on TV!

Of course end my day with Chocolate.
Thanks so much for the giveaway.

Stephen said...

Honestly... to win this great gift basket (as cool as it is), isn't incentive enough for me to really seriously attempt to answer this question. lol, sorry. Off the top of my head I'll just say that I'd spend the day winning every single sweepstakes and contest I could find to enter. lol.

I would go to Aruba and take a walk on the beach early in the morning. Enjoy some fresh fruit for breakfast then go downtown to the shopping district and browse the local goods. Pick up lunch at my favorite local restaurant. Then I would visit the lighthouse and maybe read a book. Followed by a short swim in the ocean. Then I would go to the Windmill resort and have a few drinks at their bar.I then would go to a nice ocean side restaurant and enjoy the sunset. Blissfully ending my day in paradise.

Thanks so much for offering this fun contest!

NL6369 said...

A whole day just for me? I think I would start out with a nice long walk, enjoy the wildlife and scenery. Then when I get home take a nice warm bubble bath with my favorite beverage, candles and book and stay until the water is too cold to stand it anymore. After that cuddle up on my couch with a nice throw, a cup of hot chocolate, pop in my favorite tear-jerker movie and then sleep.

tlcfromtn said...

I would travel to every state in the USA. I'd travel in an RV (with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii, of course) and stop at all the interesting places along the way. Thanks for the giveaway!

I would SLEEP IN, then sit and read the newspaper all by myself. Then I would take a shower with no one bothering me, then I would hit the spa and do a full day of pampering!

I have always dreamed of Australia.

Since I no longer have children at home, I am craving time with the grandkids. I would spend the entire day playing with them. The added benefit is that their parents get a gift of a day to do what they want!

monky said...

I would rent me a cabin deep in the woods on a lake and take along a good book and some comfort food and spend the peaceful day loving life. :)

:) Thank you for the wonderful giveaway! :)

fluggy said...

I would go to Vegas and party all day and night

jacaclawless said...

Sleep in as long as I wanted and then spend an unhurried day with my wife and kids doing whatever they wanted to do!

arvard said...

I would spend the day on a sunny beach with my family.

Margaret Lanza said...

Oh boy...I'd hire someone to redecorate my house, someone else to clean my house, someone to organize my house, someone to be my personal shopper, someone to be my personal chef and masseuse. I'm sure I could think of others, but that would be enough for one day! Thanks for a great contest!

kristina e said...

Sleep and then more sleep

sweepmom said...

I love to travel and see the world. Unfortunately finances don't allow me to do nearly enough. If I could do anything and everything, I would travel all over the world seeing things like the piramids, old castles, Machu Pichu and many other sites.

I'd arrange to run away with-- er, I mean meet, yeah. Meet. That's it. I'd arrange to meet Peter Davison. In London, of course.

Tammy said...

I would travel all I could with my husband and good friends.

I just stumbled on your blog this morning and first, I have to say "WOW!" I have been to a few product review blogs, but none put as much effort into describing the product. The color coordination of the outfits with the product was too cute! Your description of the product made me want to go out and buy them. Great Job.

Now, for my indulgence for one day would be to be to be pampered at a 5 star spa. I know it isn't very creative, but it is something I can't afford and desperately need!

Cayle said...

It so cute how you matched all the colors with the M&M's mmm my fav. might be mint chocolate yum.

My answer would be,
If there could me absolutely anything to do i would take off school and work for the day. Then i would go volunteer for something. ALSO i would drag my brothers along! xD

kristens_12 said...

As I am 35 weeks pregnant, I would want to sleep in without any back pain. Then I would spend the rest of the morning and afternoon treating myself to a spa day. :) I would want to spend the evening with my husband at one of the nicest restaurants in boston...the top of the hub!!

Jinxy and Me said...

I would go to the beach and hang out and relax!

amy said...

well i am the new mommy to twin girls (5 months) so my answer would be... to have a relaxing day to myself at the spa and time to go shopping with no time restraints! but... i would probably end up missing the girls!

Rose said...

A day at any beach would be my dream day. Thanks for the nice giveaway!

Giant Sis said...

To indulge myself for one day, I guess it'd be a local thing - I'd get a day at the spa - massage, pedicure, facial - where they give you a bathrobe to wear and pamper you. But it wouldn't start until whenever I woke up - no getting up early for me! A lunch date with my husband in the middle of it. Then, get dressed up for dinner and eat at one of the fancy restaurants in Dallas (there's several Top Chef ones here). Have a decadent chocolate dessert to end the day. Yep, sounds like a good day to me!

clynsg said...

Difficult to narrow it down, and since my children are grown (actually even my grandchildren are!) I do have more leisure to do many of my favorite things than most of your posters! So I guess I will have my house perfectly cleaned and decorated, some delicious food available, and the entire family here enjoying themselves without worrying about any of the mundane problems of life today!

Sue S said...

I would take my 15 year old son to Italy and spend the day together sight seeing. He wants to go there very badly and I'm a single mom, teacher, with no money--so this would be a wonderful day.

anastasia said...

I would take my granddaughter to Disney World.

Liz G. said...

Great post! On my perfect day-- I would be with my husband and we would eat out every meal at places that are not seafood restaurants, and we would go out to a movie. I'm pretty simple. =)

Alicia said...

It's a toss-up. I'd spend the first half of the day (after sleeping in!) laying on a beach somewhere reading with a delicious cold beverage all by myself. Then I'd pick up my husband and head to a cold mountain somewhere. We'd ski all afternoon, eat in a cozy lodge that night, then cuddle up in a log cabin afterwards playing games until late into the evening. Then I'd have whoever was babysitting drop off my precious little girl so I could rock with her for a little bit before bedtime. Ahhhhh...

mgster said...

I would get my husband and adult children and fly us all off to an exciting vacation...every one of us needs it right now. Somewhere where these is not 13 inches of snow on the ground and more expected for Tuesday!! Thanks for the contest.

Emily said...

An entire day...hmm, I would stay in my pajamas and drink hot coffee while watching all the morning talk shows, and then head off for an afternoon of shopping...alone! I'd treat myself and my hubby to a romantic dinner and then head home to enjoy our Premium M&M's while watching a great movie in bed. Sounds perfect to me! Thanks for this great giveaway!

Jenn said...

If I could do anything I wanted to? I'd go see my boyfriend overseas. Miss him like crazy!

Becky said...

One of the best review posts I've ever seen...and don't know how you have time to blog..gahhh I find it excruciating and I only have 3 (of different ages..)..

One day huh??

Umm how about a lovely day to MYSELF>.

Colleen said...

Ohhh man I am starvvving now!

If I had a day to do anything and everything in the world, I would like to spend the day (it can be a hot day right?) on the beach with everyone I love. I would wanna spend time with my 2 month old nephew. And I wanna meet my best friends baby boy, who should be here any day!

SouthernMama said...

Those chocolates look YUMMY!

If I could do anything and everything in one day, I would spend my day both loving on my sweet little boys and walking on the beaches of Aruba with just my husband. I love spending time with just my honey, but we always miss the boys now, I would choose to have both at the same time. :-)

Anonymous said...

Lets see, I would be lounging on a beach where the water is turquoise with a Coors Light in one hand (or my lounge chair cup holder) and a box of each of the yummy M&M's surrounding me. Since I now have a cup holder, a good book in the other hand.

mom2anutball said...

Great question!! I would take my kids to disney world and enjoy watching them have teh time of their lives! Or a romantic giveaway to Australia with my hubby visiting all the great sites!

Allenfamilyadventure said...

I would spend the whole day in bed, with the house empty and clean and quiet. I'd read and watch movies all day and then take a long bubble bath!

Russell and Sarah said...

I would sleep in, have a massage on the beach, take a nap on the beach have another massage on the beach, spend some time with myt honey. Maybe a couples massage on the beach...you get the idea I think.

Katy said...

I would enjoy spending time with my whole family at the beach.

turboterp said...

I'd take a quick trip to the Greek Isles and drink wine in a little cafe while watching the sun set. Sigh...

Robyn said...

Your blog is awesome! It makes me happy to just see your adorable little ones and how well they are doing - now this awesome new blog with product reviews - I love it!

One day to indulge... if I could do anything it would be to spend it with my husband doing something outdoors. Wouldn't matter what we were doing as long as we were doing it together.

Keep sharing your awesome stories and reviews!!

paula h said...

I would stay in bed all day, preferably with my husband :)

ConfidentUntilCompletion said...

I would go to Australia on a trip with my husband! I would love to be there instantly just to see Sydney Harbor and the Great Barrier Reef.

Leah

Jennifer said...

If I could do anything....have one week of peace and quiet on a beach by myself or maybe with some girlfriends. NO KIDS!

Those Brumley Boys said...

I think a day in Paris would be perfect...but it would have to include several hours at a spa! Now...if there were some of the M&Ms available (and that they would not add any more weight) it would be fantastic!

Those Brumley Boys said...

I don't mean to publish twice if that happens...my comment didn't show up.
My answer was to spend a day in Paris, but I would love for it to include some time at a spa!
(With those M&Ms to snack on all day long!)

Mallory said...

Well, I don't have any children (yet :) but working at a full-time job and trying to go to night school full-time will certainly wear a girl down! If I had one day...first I would hire someone to do a complete top to bottom clean-down of my house. While that's going on I will be with my hubby at a cabin in the mountains, sitting on a pier over-looking the tranquil lake. Reading a good book for the FIRST time in years...until the sun sets and I find myself relaxing in the hot tub by nightfall. Yep...that would be enough refreshment if I only had one day =)

Angie said...

Suz, you are so cute with your matching outfits! You're a perfect momma for your lil Savannah!

Anyways, if I could have any indulgence - it would be a day by myself, to sleep, to read, to do whatever I wanted. And to think, I'm such an extrovert! My how motherhood changes you, right?

I've been following your blog for awhile. You're doing a great job with your babies! They are precious!

Hugs, Angie

Nana said...

O.K.. first allow me to confess...I am a Steece's Pieces stalker. I just enjoy the blog and feel like I know each of you. I'm loving your personalities...this crazy world needs more happy couples like you!
Now, If I could have a day, all mine, I would love to meet you, Joe and the children, in your home. I'm a Nana and I LOVE everybody's children! We could all indulge in some M&M's too! I look forward to trying the new M&M's with almonds!
Thanks, NanaJ

Leah-Bo-Beah said...

I'd eat a big, huge, plate of sushi in Japan! (With some YUMMY M&M's for desert!!) Gee thanks...now you've got me craving!!! AAAhhhh!!

Cynthya said...

Loved the photos. If I only had one day, I wouldn't waste any of it in leaving the house. I'd spend the whole day with my husband and we'd have a fabulous dinner brought in. Oh, and I'd eat LOTS of chocolate. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

Cybrlee said...

Spend the day with my now grown sons.
They make me laugh and I enjoy spending quality time with them.

Proud Wife of a U.S. Soldier said...

I would travel somewhere. I feel like I have so many things holding me back - school, family, husband... I would just go somewhere in Europe, even if for a day, & do something for me for a change!

SeahorseLady said...

That's a tough one. If I had one day then it would be to watch the sun rise on the ocean and spend the day listening to the waves and watching the dolphins play and then watch the sun set. What a wonderful and peaceful day that would be.

KateZ said...

I would sleep as late as I could, in a warm bed in a cold room. I would have heavy blankets to keep me warm. For breakfast, I would have an omelet, biscuits & gravy, orange juice, a cinnamon roll and coffee. I would take a candle lit bubble bath, get dressed in comfy stylish clothes, and head out for the day. I would get my hair & nails done, visit the bookstore to stock up on magazines and a new Jodi Piccoult novel. I would stop at a local deli for a turkey sandwhich and a diet Coke. The afternoon would be spent in bed, reading and napping as my body directs me. I would spend the evening on a dinner date with my husband. We'd both dress up, have dinner and a scrumptious dessert! As a stepmother of 3 teenage boys and a special ed teacher...I would love the day to myself!

paulafranklin02@aol.com said...

I am a brand new teacher. If I could indulge myself for one day- I would spend it at Lakeshore Learning and every other teacher store I could find or know of and I would buy all the grest things the kids in my school need. Books for them to take home to be stronger readers, school supplies for those that can't afford them, and LOTS of hand on learning manipulatives so that they can connect what we are learning to their lives. Unfortunately in my area, families struggle to provide food for their kids, and school funding is way down, so we do what we can with what we have, spend our own money, and we hope the future gets brighter with new leaders in charge!

Amanda said...

My perfect day would go something like this:
I wake up on my own-no alarm clock, no crying baby, no barking dogs-and lay there in the stillness as long as I can. My hubby and I spend some one on one time snuggling together and then we go get our newborn son, Eli. We bring him in the bed with us and an all out tickle war ensues. After our morning time together, we go into our kitchen that is spic and span (perfect day, right?) where the coffee has just finished brewing. I feed Eli while my hubby makes a delicious breakfast. Eli falls asleep right as breakfast is ready (perfect day, right again?) and Josh and I savor every morsel of food and enjoy our coffee to the last drop! Eli wakes up and we spend the rest of our day together-watching movies, playing with each other, going for walks by the river, visiting family and friends, and enjoying each other's company. We watch the sun go down while we enjoy our fabulous dinner of grilled tuna, asparagus, and stuffed baked potatoes. We give our son and bath, read him his Bible story, and sing him to sleep. Then we curl up on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and watch movies together until we fall asleep until morning. That is my perfect day!

Gina said...

I would sleep in until 10 or so, uninterrupted. Then I would spend the day leisurely shopping, eating at a little bistro for lunch, and more shopping, sans children.
Did I mention my children are not involved in this day at all. I love them dearly, but I need a break once in a while!

Monique said...

I have tried the mint chocolate premium M&Ms and they were delicious! After reading your review I really want to try the raspberry almond. My perfectly indulgent day would involve spending the day in Disneyworld with my family and getting to do every single attraction that is my favorite without waiting in lines. Not exactly restful, but soooo much fun!

Darcy said...

Great pics! I would spend a beautiful sunny day on a deserted beach with my sweetie.

Thank you for the great giveaway!

bohemiangypsy said...

Ok, this may sound funny, but I would have "clean up the world day," where I would have the power to make everyone help pick every stinkin piece of paper, garbage, litter, and junk up, and dispose of them properly. If only I had the power! I am germaphobic! Love the pictures for the contest. Very cute. Thanks so much.

Taylor said...

I'd go to Paris and spend the whole day browsing their street flea markets and buying anything and everything I want.Thanks for hosting this contest.skyxsky27(at)gmail.com

Danielle said...

Mmmmm, Premium M&Ms - I love the mint chocolate, and have an official addiction- I found them on sale at Target for 2 bucks a while back and bought myself a few...alright, all the ones they had left on the shelf!

The perfect day would have to begin by sleeping in till I woke up on my own, waking up to a scrumptious breakfast under the shining sun (that someone else cooked and cleaned up after), a good book to read while the baby takes a two hr nap (instead of 20 mins!), and an evening of snuggling with hubby while we watched something we both like, our boy. Simple and sweet.

Surfed my way to your great blog. I'd gather my family in one spot and we'd share a meal and memories while making new ones.
Sandra @ thistlecovefarm.blogspot.com - giving you my blog address because I'm too computer stupid to figure out how to make the wrong one go away.

Deb said...

I would ride roller coasters with my boys all day long - no waiting in lines of course - and eat chicken nuggets and french fries. It would be a glorious day of fun!!

Skybluefusion said...

I would indulge by taking my mom out for the entire day and not worry about the cost and just do and go and see all the things she's wanted to do for years and has never had the time or money. (I'm the oldest of 5...the youngest being 5 year old twins!)

Me and the boyfreind would run to the mountains

Shelba Lanham bluidenanny@yahoocom said...

I would spend the day with family and friends and doing alot of praying.

artmarcia said...

I'm thinking--Hawaii--beach--hike up into the mountains--a massage and spa treatment--topped off by a luau.

Mama Llama said...

I would indulge myself by getting a massage, eating lots of chocolate and drinking a nice glass of wine.

jo1brat said...

I would probably just check into a luxury hotel (with sitter service and chef) Have a huge breakfast then lounge by the pool being served by hot cabana boys then nap and read a good book then have a romantic dinner and return to my room where my bubble bath is drawn and..... wow now I am depressed cause that isn't going to happen anytime soon LOL

Mike J said...

I would take my family on a well deserved cruise and make the day last 7 days. :)
Thanks, Mike

Lu Ann said...

A day in the mountains with my family, relaxing in a nice cabin by a big fire is what I would love.

I would go to the beach with my husband & 1 year-old. Just enjoy the time with the three of us!!!
Stacey

jnmacdonald said...

A morning of sightseeing in an exotic locale followed by an afternoon at the spa would be ideal.

Jeff, Lauren, Graham & Miles said...

Oh wow!!
I would have to say sleeping on an AWESOME new mattress (minus the snoring husband) until 10 AM (it's been a while since I've slept until a double-digit), waking up to a vanilla latte, curling up on a nice comfy new couch, and reading until I was able to finish the Twilight series....and then I would retreat to that nice new mattress for another night without distractions!!
Thanks for doing this!!
Lauren

nickyle said...

One day, only one day to indulge, hmmm...

I would wake up with my husband kissing me softly, serving me breakfast in bed which consists of chocolate pancakes, chocolate covered strawberries and a nice hot chocolate. We would then make sweet love while pouring chocolate syrup all over the bed (hey, I only have one day, I won't have to clean them! No, No I won't because this is my dream!). Rising from bed we would head to the beautiful mountains, spend the day zipping around on some atv's, drinking in the sunshine, the fresh air and the scenery. Ending the day laying on the mountainside together, holding each other, feeding each other Premium M&M's and watching the sunset fall.

Sounds perfect to me!

MCJunkie said...

I would hit all the prime dinners and just eat and eat. Then I would go for a swim in the ocean and run off to do some salmon fishing in Canada somewhere.
govgirl@gmail.com

Stacey said...

you are very good at this! i, scratch that, we could use a great get away to someplace warm, tropical sounds good and as bad as i would hate to leave my trio..mommy and daddy only! i would stash the chocolate just for mamma to enjoy for those crazy days with triplets when i just need a fix..

oneinamil23 said...

I would do NOTHING =) I would go the the spa and pull out all the stops and then lay on my couch and SLEEP all day long! =)

Jennifer said...

One day to do anything...

I envision my boyfriend and I on a secluded beach, doesn't matter where as long as the water is clear blue and the sand white. We have one of those huts that are beachside, a few good books, ingredients for some pina coladas some other tropical drink, sunshine, sunscreen...peaceful. At the end of the day, someone would show up to give us both incredible full body massages, a spa treatment deluxe.

yeah, I'd like that right about now.

Tammy said...

I would be sitting on the deck 4 of the Disney Magic in the middle of the ocean, with my husband, and daughter on each side of me, with a large cappucino in one hand, and a book in the other. That is indulgence!

Anonymous said...

I've been to 42 of the 50 states but never Hawaii. I've always wanted to go. I'd load up my husband and the kids and we'd have a vacation to remember always. We'd hit the beach, eat out, play, play, play and just enjoy family bonding togetherness! geko55geko@yahoo.com
