Cascadian Farm and friends surprise

So, we've had the sickies around here. We're just passing it around (or the kids are) like a pro basketball team, back and forth. So it's just been a season in our lives where I feel we're just not doing a ton, it gets ... monotonous and feels unending. Thankfully the girls seem to be feeling much better and I'm just praying it stays that way. In the midst of all the crazy sickies I got a package on my doorstep. I wasn't expecting one at all. It turns out it was from the WONDERFUL people at Cascadian Farm. I wasn't sure what could be in it at all. When I opened it, I may or may not have squealed like a school girl out of excitement. I mean, check out this awesome box!? I was so surprised, it was and is such a great pick me up. What a blessing!
There are some AMAZING products that were featured in this box. I wish I could run a giveaway from these companies. Here's what's in the box.

Cascadian Farms
Cute fitted "vintage" worn looking T-shirt with a picture of a tree on it.
Canvas tote bag, who doesn't need these? Perfect for groceries! It's HUGE!
Two boxes of their yummy crunchy granola bars- "Made with 9 or fewer simple ingredients!"

Sent an AWESOME water bottle that I have used EVERY. DAY. I have been wanting to try one of these out for ages. It's awesome. They have all sizes, bottle tops, sippy cup tops, sport tops, and this spring a flip/straw top. I need some for the girls to use, for sure!

People Towels
People Towels sent a soft organic towel. It is the size of a luncheon napkin (9x9 inches), which is perfect since I try to use cloth napkins as much as possible here. Actually, kitchen cloth in general I try to use as opposed to disposable. Not to say we don't have or use disposable products. The design is way cute and the towel features a "loop" for hanging if needed. This is the only product out of the bunch that I wasn't familiar with, I'm so glad I was "introduced" to them! (Other than the Emeals website)

Laptop Lunches Bento-Ware
I was sent a great Bento-ware box set, and a great user guide with all sorts of ideas and pictures. Made in the USA, I've used Laptop lunches before. If you search Laptop lunches posts will pop up, starting in 2007.Sign up for their newsletter and get weekly menus! No lead, no PVC, no BPA! There are different sizes, bags,and accessories. This company sure has grown since I first discovered them.

Emeals, I have never heard of Emeals until this box. I put some information and a mini review up on this great site HERE, check it out, it's so useful! I also have their button on the left side of my blog.

Seventh Generation
Love this company. When we were traveling or out and about we used their disposable diapers. They sent some Natural Dish Liquid. Fresh Citrus and Ginger. MMM it smells so good, and gentle on the hands. Visit their site to see all the products they offer and get free shipping off of orders of $50 or more.

Neutrogena Naturals
I was surprised to see Netrogena in the box. I grew up using their products. I've always liked them and used their face washes quite a bit. They sent a Neutrogena Naturals Acne Cream Cleanser. We haven't used it yet but I will. The bottle says that it has No harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, phthalates. Pretty cool, high five Neutrogena!

There you go, all that was in my amazing surprise box! Maybe some of these companies will sponsor a giveaway? What do you think? Which company would you like to see offer a giveaway? Have you heard of these companies before? Discovered any new ones? Leave me a comment below.

I received this box as a surprise. I was not asked to do any reviews or write ups. I just wanted to share how blessed I was to receive this box and thank the companies for their kindness. I wasn't paid for this post at all.
