  1. Honestly, I have no idea how I came across your blog! probably just stumbled on it!

  2. if someone gave me $45, i'd probably buy shoes first haha. then running shorts :)

    ReplyDelete
  3. $45 just handed to me would be dropped directly into my "Go to Florida to visit my best friend" jar. Can't wait until that thing is full.

    I don't recall how I came across your blog... maybe through Jess @ HealthyExposures or a link from another blog, but I'm really glad I did come across this. :)

    ReplyDelete
  4. OK, so I've never won anything, so I'm in it to win it. Bear with the multiple comments!

    First, I found your blog by a recommendation from Christie at Honoring Health. She told me I would love it - and I do!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  5. If someone handed me $45 I would join a gym. My membership just expired since we moved and I'm too broke to join a new one!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I shared your giveaway with the world via twitter (though I really want to win!).

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hi! I'm Keri from I Eat Trees. :) I think I subscribed to your blog because someone linked to it? I don't remember exactly, but I read!

    ReplyDelete
  8. If someone handed me $45 I would probably put it towards something for my camera. Or kitchen stuff...

    ReplyDelete
  9. I get the Iron Chef Ceramic Santoku knife from CSN Stores with the gc.

  15. First thing I would buy...probably would be practical and end up using it for groceries, but new shoes would be a fun splurge!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hey Rebekah! I found your blog through Googling eating disorders and then was lucky enough to get to meet you!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would buy and blender...or a food processor/nut grinder (if there is one) to make my own nut butter!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would put it towards groceries..or rent whichever comes first.

    CLOTHED MUCH, a modest fashion blog

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have no idea how I found your blog, but I have been reading for a while and I dig it :)

    If someone gave me $45 I would go get new running shoes. Obviously that wouldn't be enough, but it would be a significant dent, and my shoes are so bad thy are causing me injury!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I Think I found you through jess healthy exposures, and so glad I did!

    ReplyDelete
  21. If someone handed me 45$ I would probably hit up lululemon. or buy a new workout dvd, or go to whole foods.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think I found you through EBF. and I'm Kim & I'm 23 & we both go to the same school. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hi, I'm Kassi :). I've been reading your blog for a while now but I'm not sure where I found you! I suspect you were linked to from another blog or I may have stumbled here looking for inspiration (which you deliver!).

    ReplyDelete
  24. The first thing I would buy is... a new set of knives! Or, maybe just one knife since they're kind of expensive. But a really good one :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi, I'm Ayla and I.. oh.. wait, I think you know me already. At least I hope you do after all of our novel-worthy emails. ;)

    I don't even remember how I found your blog but I am so freaking glad that I did. I love you, Rebekah! <3

    ReplyDelete
  26. If someone handed me $45 I would throw that baby into my savings account to try and offset the $700 I randomly spent this weekend. Somehow I don't think it would do much.. which means it would probably be best to just go and spend it on something absolutely necessary.. like books. Or clothes.. or shoes.. Speaking of shoes, I love those boats! I am desperate need of boots for the fall.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I tried to make my tweet comments slightly interesting but now I just feel highly obnoxious.. haha.

  71. I stumbled on your blog by clicking on the link for a comment you made on someone else's (can't remember now - maybe processofhealing?)...I kept reading because I have fibromyalgia too and have never met someone young like me who has it too (I am 25 and believe I have had it for several years).

    Consider me entered!

    Random (and I don't know if you have already done this) but I wondered if you would ever do a post about coping with an illness like this?
