St. Patrick’s Day and a Chobani Giveaway!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I know, I know…I’ve been MIA again. I’m defending tomorrow (AHH-TERRIFIED) so I promise my disappearing acts are almost over!

I was able to enjoy a St. Patrick’s Day parade this weekend in Jackson! Zach, Zoe and I headed down Friday after work and had a great Saturday afternoon watching the parade.

I know…I don’t have any green shirts at the moment, but I tried!

This was my favorite float: A football-themed float called “Religion of the South”!

After the parade, we hung out at Zach’s grandparents’ house with his family before going out to dinner. Everyone else had more fun than I did though, because I was stuck inside working on my defense presentation instead of chatting on the porch enjoying the weather.

At least Zoe and Zach’s brother Jonathon kept me company!

Speaking of Zoe, she was quite her festive self this weekend.

She LOVES holidays!

I’ll be updating y’all on our wedding venue and my defense later this week! I also have an awesome healthified blueberry pie recipe to share!

Now for the fun part: A giveaway!!

Chobani Greek Yogurt sent me a package of their three newest flavors to try: Apple Cinnamon, Passion Fruit, and Blood Orange. I had been DYING to try them so I was so so excited!

My favorite of the three was Apple Cinnamon. It tasted like Apple Pie yogurt and was delicious with cinnamon graham crackers mixed in!

The blood orange was also delicious! I loved that it was a little tangy and it was a really different flavor of yogurt compared to the typical strawberry or vanilla flavors I tend to eat. I’m thinking I need to eat my last container of this with some mini chocolate chips mixed in!

Lastly, was the passion fruit. I loved the flavor of this yogurt because I love almost all passion fruit flavored things I try! I was not expecting the passion fruit seeds at the bottom, but I have to say I actually liked them. The crunch made the yogurt have a different dimension of texture than regular yogurt. I think this yogurt would be yummy with some pecans or walnuts (and chocolate!) mixed in!

Chobani has so kindly offered to give a case of these three yogurt flavors to one of you! How exciting! Please enter in the comments with your favorite Chobani yogurt flavor and please leave your email as well!

This giveaway will end on Friday, March 23, 2012 at 5 PM EST Pin It

  3. I love blueberry! Thanks for hosting the giveaway! And I actually forgot about the green thing for St. Patty's. I got pinched a lot.


  4. I am actually totally in love with the 2% Strawberry Banana! I think it doesn't get nearly as much attention and love as it deserves! It's so rich and creamy, and totally reminds me of my fave strawberry banana smoothie!

  5. I really like the Apple Cinnamon! Tried it for the first time last week! megan.lindley33@gmail.com

    So excited you found my blog! Can't wait to read about your wedding plans! :)

  6. I tried the Apple Cinnamon this week and loved it. Chobani is one of my favorite things to eat at work because it's filling and doesn't require any prep work for me!:) bsj0118@hotmail.com

    Can't wait to hear about your venue!

  7. I love Raspberry Chobani! It doesn't get nearly enough attention as it deserves! I haven't yet tried the new flavors, but they all sound wonderful!
