BAGGU Giveaway


Rookie Cookie is having another great giveaway. A BAGGU Grocery Kit. Five BAGGU reusable grocery bags, stored in a compact drawstring sack. Five BAGGU reusable grocery bags will bring home a whole cart full of groceries. And good news for slobs like me, they are machine washable.


Reusuable grocery bags don't have to be just for groceries. They are great for a packed lunch at the park, towels and sunscreen at the beach, laundry headed to the laundromat and your kid's soccer cleats and shin guards.

To enter to win these awesome grocery bags, leave a comment. But make it a good comment. Like a joke or a cool fact. A funny story. Or what your pet peeve is. Or your favorite color. Just entertain me, okay?

You have until Saturday, June 20th at the stroke of midnight.

Um, can I just refer you to your sister's most recent post about getting her "area" waxed? Because that had me doubled over laughing at 7:39am. Much too early for that sort of laughing.

Wait, she is your sister, right? Yes. I'm almost sure that she is.

Shanicherie said...

How about...I think your two little boys are the cutest little dumplings ever! Every time you or Caitlyn put anything up about them I make my husband look at it and I say, "LOOK at how cute these kids are!", or "Look at how funny Jack is!" Seriously, your boy is funny.

Did you know we have a cat that LOVES peanut butter? Of course you didn't know....it's a ridiculous fact, but even more ridiculous is how we've incorporated it into our lives. One of our home wireless networks refers to it, we use it as a password and my husband even bought the domain 'icanhaspnutbutr?' for our cat's website. (hasn't been updated in a while, if you check)

So yeah, we're a little 'nuts' for it (groan) and also for our cat. Crazy cat people.

I was in love with my Target Branded Baggu. It was cool - red and orange, with just a tiny little bullseye in the corner (I got it from the company store.)

The small size and ability to cram it into this little tiny bag for the baggu made it a must for our vacation to Florida. We would be going to the beach, going to the grocery store, buying vacation type stuff that needed a bag.

So - when my baggu went MISSING, i was sad. When my husband said "I saw it in the garbage can. I wondered why you wanted to throw it away (but didn't bother to ask)." I was devastated - and more than a little PO'd. I KNOW that I didn't throw away my favorite $15 reusable - indestructable - washable - heavy lifting baggu.

So - if I am lucky enough to win such a great set - I am pretty sure my dear H. will not let them get thrown away again. I never get mad - he'll remember.

Catherine said...

A joke (such as it is):

What's green and has wheels?
Grass! I was only kidding about the wheels!

That's kills on the preschool circuit;)

Seriously, though, Baggu bags are fantastic, and I would love a whole set!

Ingrid said...

Oh, sure put the pressure on.....

You get an interesting tidbit (or at least for me) the Twins (mine) are playing baseball in Cooperstown NY & the games today can be watched on the computer!! Yesterday I got to watch one of them (Devon) hit a HOMERUN! :)Yes, I'm a proud Mama!

Meg said...

Hm... jokes. This is the last one I think I really laughed at:
Q: What do you get when a cow jumps over a barbed wire fence?
A: Udder destruction!
But on a lighter note: I'd love some reusable grocery bags!

A Pirate walks into a bar.
The bartender asks "why do you wear a patch over your eye?"
The Pirate responds "well I had an itch and it was the first day with 'me hook!"
hahaah!

I agree with Keri Beth. I'm hilarious.

And I'm your sister.

I'm going to go buy that set right now. You're brilliant.

Maria said...

I LOVE those bags! What a fun giveaway! I don't really have a good joke or story, but I have a lame one, so bear with me.
How can you spot Ronald McDonald on a nude beach?


He is the one with the sesame seed buns...ha! Sorry for that one:)

Tracey said...

Can I tell you that I drop three kids off at daycare every morning, my two 4 and 20 months, and my sisters son who is 1. Just imagine in your head what it is like to herd those three in the door every morning. I think it is like herding geese.

Anyway that is my comment for today

Lindsay said...

Since Laffy Taffy-esque jokes seem to be the theme here, how about this one:

Q: What do you call a fish with no eyes?
A: A fsh.


Seriously, though. I walk to the grocery store, and these bags would make my weekly excursions that much easier. And your recipes? Are awesome. We're HUGE fans of the Sesame Chicken.

Addie said...

q:Why did the tomato turn red?
a:It saw the salad dressing.

I would love these bags, although when I go shopping I usually either forget my bags at home or when I actually remember to put them in my car, forget them in the car! It's on my grocery list now to get the bags and remember them in the store. These would be fabulous. Thanks!!

Gina Lee said...

Here's a story for you:
I signed up in church to make 2 dozen cookies for the missionaries zone conference. I totally forgot and last night at 9:00 I remembered. So in a rush I starting making cookies and in the middle of baking, I called to find out what time to deliever my cookies... Friday at 11am! I was a few days off. That's okay though, we will deliever them to grandma and make more Thursday night.

Kristi said...

What did the tie say to the hat?

You go on ahead while I hang around. (I don't get much adult interaction, obviously) Since this is my first time commenting, I should tell you, I'm in love with your blog.

Katie said...

I have the best joke, i'm pregnant...oh wait that's not a joke. But i'm sure you're laughing. I've always wanted to have my kids 13 months apart (note the sarcasm) hopefully this got you laughing...or crying like me! Seriously though I LOVE those bags!

Ashley Thalman said...

I am positive this one is for me!

Julie Pia said...

hmm.....

I love ranch on just about EVERYTHING! Even pancakes! haha..... it's true

karin said...

Knock, Knock.


Whose there?


Smell Mop.


Smell Mop who?

Those bags sound great. It is my 5yo job to get the reusable bags out of the car before we go into the store, I think I need to start getting the 4yo to do it because in Sept. I am planning on shopping with just 2 kids while he is in school.

Chelsea said...

Okay, here's a random fact: Teflon is the sliperist substance in the world.

How about this one: The 7-Eleven Extreme Gulp is 50% bigger than the volume of the human stomach.

Maybe a Joke: How do you make Lady Gaga Cry? Poker Face!!!

Did I win yet?

Kristi said...

My favorite color is GREEN! And my 8 year old thinks everything green, I will love...sigh...sometimes it's not the case. Still cute =o)

i love the color orange. i think i am getting an orange phone when my old one dies.

I like blue. Probably why I ended up with two boys.

Sweet Pea Chef said...

Ok, I am slow and just realized that the drawstring bag holds the other grocery bags. Best feature, hands down. Right now, I have bags just floating in my trunk.

BTW, I posted a link to this giveaway on my blog, since I think this is one a lot of folks could use!

Becky said...

My dog chases a red light like most cats, it is the funniest thing to watch. We had him staring under the couch for over an hour once. We finally had to get up and run the light back out from under the couch to get her to move on. The funniest part is that she knows where it comes from, you get out the light key chain and she automatically starts looking on the floor for it.

Marie said...

Love your site. Wish I was you!

~Morgan~ said...

i cannot be witty on demand.
someone says think something and my mind goes blank.
it's true.
i can only imagine how many comments you'll have by the time this is over!

Kristin said...

So, I don't know any jokes but reading the other comments definitely gives me funny things to tell my daughter...she love it!

Here's my little story: my daughter lectures me every time I use plastic bags. Seriously, I get in big trouble and being lectured by an almost 3 year old is dangerous. She too cute and a little hard to take seriously...then I just get in more trouble!

Obviously, I need these bags :)

Brandy said...

Ooh - these are so cool!

Hmm.. something witty. My daugher's new favorite song is "A B C D E F G, Now I wonder what you are." She walks around belting it out all day long! TOo cute!

Amanda said...

Whitney, I am just going to forward you to my blog. I just posted the most adorable video of Nathan cry/laughing. Isn't that the best when kids can't decide if they are happy or sad.
Is it child abuse to let your child get to that stage of tired, just so you get the entertainment? I don't think so. Anything to make mom laugh.
P.S. I need those bags.

JC said...

My store BAGger will be happy for me to have these in my handBAG and not wait till I run out to the car to Bag my forgotten Bags so she can BAG my BAGSfull of groceries........again.

Caldwell said...

I don't have any great jokes to tell but I love those bags. The best part is that there is no store logo on it so that I can take it to any store and not feel guilty about the fact that their competition is blazed onto the side of my grocery bag.

Hey, I like to shop for certain things at lots of different stores. I'm not a bunch for each of the stores!

Christina said...

I don't know jokes. I can't ever remember them OR tell them correctly so I'll save you from my attempts. So here you go. My cute little 3-year old came in crying because she ate it on the sidewalk. She said "I scribbled my kneebow." hahaha.

I'd LOVE these bags:)

Erika said...

Uhhh. I NEED to win those. I never win anything. Ever. Those would make my LIFE, probably.

I don't really have a funny story. I wish I did. I'll get back to you.

Jaime said...

I don't have any thing funny. I just really want these bags!!

Megan said...

My little girl (18 mo.) grabs her sunglasses, phone and purse everytime we leave the house! I think I have trained her well!

PS I WANT/NEED those bags! Pick me!

Jessica said...

I love your blog and ALL of your great recipes!

My alltime pet-peeve: Why do people bag their bananas at the grocery store? Ugh, aren't we trying to go green these days!

Jen O said...

Here's a joke...it's cheesey, but it's super cute and funny when a kid tells it.

Question: What's brown and sticky?
Answer: A stick.

ha ha!

Ehme said...

Did you know that Albatrosses can stay airborne for 10 years without landing and can glide for six days without flapping their wings?

Pretty impressive. And with no coffee!

Alyoops said...

I've followed your blog for a while but I don't like posting obsessive comments, so this is the first time I've posted.

I'm an environmental student and I've been TRYING to get my family to use reusable bags. I've given them bags. I've lectured to them. Nothing works.

I would keep these bags for myself, however, because they are washable. Hopefully these kind of reusable bags will start to gain more sway then the ones that grocery stores provide: those aren't washable, and carry lots of icky bacteria after a few uses.

<3 Not only do you have good recipes, but you're also green too! Yay!

schetsclan said...

These look great! I have been looking for some good ones.

Holly said...

My favorite color is green. At least I think it is, or was. I haven't thought about it for a long time. Oh, and I made cookies the other day and as I was handing them out to one of the neighborhood children passing through my house, he said, "You make the best cookies ever." And, as he walked out the door he turned around and said, "But don't tell my mom I said that!"

Neat giveaway. I just found your blog, but I'll be back.

the BLAH BLAH BLAHger said...

These look AWESOME!

Skrapbuker said...

I came across your blog via http://www.socialluxelounge.com/blogluxe/

I voted.

I heard this on the bus on the way to work last week:

Q: What did the baby digital watch say to the mommy analog watch?

A: Look Ma, no hands!

The kid's expression his face was just so cute and priceless; made me smile.

Anyhoo ... thanks for a chance to win and have a great week!

My Sensei said...

I have some random facts for you!

Did you know that....

Two-thirds of the world's eggplant is grown in New Jersey.

Mr. Rogers was an ordained minister.

A dime has 118 ridges around the edge.

Guinness Book Of Records holds the record for being the book most stolen from Public Libraries.

Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning.

The average American male laughs 69 times a day where the average woman laughs 55 times a day.

Your left hand does an average of 56% of your typing.

OK! :-) Enjoy and great giveaway-those bags look awesome!!

Joke from a kid I was babysitting...

The first little pig walked into a bar and ordered one rootbeer. He drank it then asked the bartender where's the bathroom. The bartender said down the hall and to the right. The second little pig came in and ordered two rootbeers. After finishing he said where's the bathroom. Down the hall and to the right. The third little pig ordered three rootbeers and after drinking all the rootbeer he asked the bartender where's the bathroom. he said down the hall and to the right. The fourth little pig came in and ordered four big rootbeers. He drank them all down and then asked where's the bathroom. The bartender said down the hall and to the right. The fifth little pig came in and ordered five rootbeers. It was so much rootbeer he could barely finish. The bartender looked at him and said do you want to know where the bathroom is. The pig said no, I'm the one who goes wee wee wee all the way home.

Rebbie said...

The best thing I can think of today...my daughter's wonderful boyfriend came to my office this morning and asked me for her hand in marriage. I can't stop smiling!

Mrs. Hass-Bark said...

I can't stand the word "moist". It makes me sick to hear it or say it. I'm gagging just a little bit just typing it.

Tiffany said...

I just got out of the car after a 21 hour trip. My mind is a bit foggy right now! lol

Jelli Bean said...

Today I woke up and realized I'd lost my wedding ring. Husband said it was alright, after all, the lady at the jewelry counter had suggested getting it 1 size too large. Words for the wise: make sure your wedding band fits well. A little loose, good. Coming off in the suds of shampooing your hair? Not so good. Here's to hoping I find it soon.

Dianne said...

Cool bags! Okay, here is my lame joke offering.

Did you hear about the thief who stole a truck full of elastic?
He was put away for a long stretch.

Carolyn G said...

I am not funny. But I am funny looking, does that count?

Kate said...

I don't know too many good jokes, but I have an old joke that was always my aunt's fave joke to tell my sisters and me.

What's big and red and eats rocks?




A big red rockeater!

How do you make a tissue dance?

You put a little boogie in it!

questions from my 5 year old child: Is the "a" word alligator? Is the "b" word bleachers? Thankfully he hasn't asked about any other letters!

Jill said...

Okay, so a couple is in a restaurant. A lady at the next table starts to choke. After realizing that she is choking the man at the table next to them pulls down her pants and licks her bum. The lady is in such shock that she gasps and coughs up the food stuck in her throat. Another patron at the restaurant says; "You know, I've heard of the hind lick manuever, but that is the first time I've ever seen it done."

(My daughter who is a nurse, told this one to me.)

Ryan + Jess said...

Jack Handey should put a smile on your face. I like this one:

If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."

Amy said...

I will be amazed if you even get to my comment considering how many fans you have, but I thought I'd add mine to the many. Favorite color...red. Kamryn likes to feed her baby doll like Mommy feeds Logan....and a joke?? how about Obama? Oh, and pet peeve...having to leave comments that make me think. :-)

ruth said...

I really feel put on the spot now. I am never funny on demand, It's completely an organic process for me. That being said, i would really love to win and I will think of your beautiful mug every time I shop! (does flattery get me anywhere?)


p.s. wish i got to see you guys when you were down.

rookie cookie said...

I am loving all of these comments. I keep trying to get Ethan to sit down and read all of these.

Keep them coming!

Sew-Digital said...

A joke that took me explaining it several times for my 15 yo DD to understand....

Two guys walk into a bar the third one ducks! LOL

Kar said...

I've been in North Carolina all week - my sister and I were talking about something delightful she had made earlier, "Oh, I got it off
Whit Ingram's blog."

Later...

"Crystal, those smoothie pops in the freezer are a cool idea."
"Oh, I saw that off Whit Ingram's blog."

Jen said...

A pet peeve of mine? Married men who don't wear their wedding rings. Hmmmm. What are they hiding?

ruthie said...

Pet Peeve: Business names that are spelled incorrectly for the sake of cute and clever. For example, Day Care/Preschool named Skool Days. Incorrectly spelled words elicit neither cute nor clever. Children should go to a school where they will learn how to spell all words correctly... :)

mandy said...

How about my 7-year-old's favorite joke?

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Interrupting cow.
Interrupting c--
Moo!

Okay so every week when I go to the store, I take my 2 big black Sunflower Market re-usable bags and as I get up to the cashier I almost panic as I watch them pack them up, I offer my help saying they can fit way more into the bag and always make the conversation of "they fit way more than you think don't they" as if they don't hear this from every re-usable freak bag user...I rearrange, I eye them...I just don't want to have to use a plastic bag! Well last week we got a 17 year old beach boy who was busy checking out the girls in line behind me while he was literally dropping my fruit into plastic bags and then dropping cans onto them. He had already poorly filled my re-usable bags of course. Well I started laughing in the middle, I couldn't help it...he looked up and I just smiled. The bag packing was so far gone I couldn't even fix it! So here's to needing a couple more bags to relieve the stress and being a bag nazi.

Jenn said...

So I see no reason to bake. I don't like it at all. And why should I do it when I could just go buy it at the Harmon's bakery and know it will be perfect. But I still read some of your recipes and think perhaps one day I will try baking something. But I love your blog and lucky for me you also post other great recipes that don't require baking at all!

cat+tadd said...

If I actually grocery shopped I might consider entering this drawing. If only..l.

Emma said...

Pet Peeve: Fake Flowers in pots outside, or PLANTED in your garden. Get Real.

Georgia said...

My pet peeve is when I smell like food. You know when you go into a restaurant or you are cooking at home, something that is maybe smokey or something... and then your hair and clothes SMELL like food all day? ick. I HATE that! :)

LOVE these bags :)

Georgia

Becky said...

I like yellow. We have a family Father's Day picnic today and each family is wearing a certain color - so we can tell who belongs with you. But I don't like my yellow shirt. It's the same one I wore last year, and I've hardly worn it since!
I would love some baggu bags! I have lots of uses for them!

Julie said...

Ok... nothing witty or funny from me. Sorry. I found your blog through the 'Tastiest Blog' voting at BlogLuxe. I haven't made anything yet, but everything looks tasty. I'm looking forward to trying things and seeing what you post in the future! (The bags look really cool, too!)

Tammigirl said...

What did the wall say to the other wall?

Can I impress you with something from my suck/rock blog?

Suck: Impulse Shopping.

Rock: Impulse Napping.

How about the time I went downstairs and thought I smelled sugar cookies. Boy one of those kids sure is great!

Then I realized the lid was off my Bath & Body Works sugar scrub in the bathroom.

I would love to fill these bags with chocolate!!!!

I found you blog through the tastiest blog voting, too. You have like a KAJILLION votes! I love finding new blogs. Bring it on, lady!

Dawn said...

Last time I was visiting my family in TX my nephew, who is five, told me he is going to marry his sister, who is two, when they grow up because he loves her. Oh, how do you explain to a five year old that you can't marry a sibling.

I could really use these bags! I recently moved to an apartment on the third floor and there is no elevator!

How about a bag joke?

Q: What's the difference between Michael Jackson and a grocery bag?


A: One is made of plastic and is dangerous for children to play with ... the other is used to carry groceries.
