My First Bloggy Give-Away!!!

life-is-good-hat-and-bag1I’m having my 1st Blog Giveaway!

Why? Because Life is Good that’s why!

I’ve been wanting to do this since January but I was afraid you guys wouldn’t like what I was giving away and wouldn’t leave a comment! Then when Ellie, my very first grandchild was born…low and behold I just got brave enough to do it! (The tiny girl is making an impact on her Gigi already!)

Plllleeeaaassseee leave a comment below. I’ll close the contest on Friday nite, so comments can come Wed. ~ Fri. (1 per person pretty please)

Here’s what I’m giving away… Life Is Good Gym/Yoga/Book bag!


 And this adorable Life Is Good Hat!


Over the past 3 years in my attempt to become a more positive person, I’ve fallen in mad love with Life is Good products. (


I have tons of Life Is Good hats that I wear when I work out or when I’m running errands and don’t want to “do” my doo!


And I use a bag exactly like this one when I go to the gym or on road trips to hold my stuff for the car…(books, magazines, snacks…stuff like that!)


You could just fold the bag and keep it in the car and use it for a grocery bag or keep your journal and current books in it and tuck it next to your bedside!


And if you aren’t a hat-person pass this one along to brighten someone else’s day!


All you have to do is leave a comment telling me one reason that Life Is Good for you!!!

Take a moment to comment…don’t leave a girl hangin! 

Love and smooches and hugs to you my Peeps…I’ll post the winner (from on Monday March 30th! 





  1. Life is good for so many reasons! I’m fortunate to have a wonderful family and many great friends. Thanks for entering me in your drawing!!!

  2. Life is good cause I get to wake up to a small lil man who loves me, no matter what my hair or makeup look like, everyday!!! And because I have a beautiful new cousin who I can’t wait to meet!!!!

  3. Because summer time is coming!!! Time to dance on the beach!

  4. Robin,
    Life is good because I believe the stomach bug has finally decided to stop tormenting my babies! They are finally FUSSING at each other again. Now normally fussing isn’t something I am relieved to hear but after days of watching them suffer with fever and the other mean things a stomach bug does…I am actually relieved to see them get their spririt back! And life is good because I’m hoping that means back to the manageable number of laundry loads in a day! Ha! Shae

  5. Why is life good? Because I am a three year cancer survivor with no sign of the nasty little bug returning. Praise His wonderful name! Blessings, SusanD

    • I don’t think I’m supposed to comment on give away day but I couldn’t help myself Susan….I just had to give a hearty AMEN! And : “YEA GOD”!!!!!

  6. life is good, because God is good!!

  7. Life is good because God always picks us up when we fall and uses us to help others know him.

  8. I love it! How sweet of you, GiGi!

  9. Despite the fact I woke up to a raging blizzard! Yes, Robin, tons of snow! Again. And despite the fact we are in the midst of a battle against a flood that is threatening to invade most if not all of our city. Life is good, because every day people by the busload are showing up to help us. Complete strangers are pitching in to save our two neighboring towns and it is an awesome, amazing example of why life is good. I may make this my mantra today!

  10. Life is good because my family is healthy and my husbands business is still doing well in this economy!!

    AWESOME giveaway Robin!!


  11. Life is good because God is good. He is faithful to bring new friends (like you!) and encouragement…He is faithful and merciful every morning! AND, He is faithful to be a life-giver (lil Ellie as an example, and my big 5-0 next week!)….and i LOVE Life is Good products! What a fab giveaway! Bless you my friend!


  12. life is good because im not in control of it. I get to see the good, the bad and the ugly. But with the good I get to celebrate. With the bad I get to trust Jesus and in the ugly I get to trust that I will change with Jesus help. So no matter what comes my way Life is good! Thanks for sharing your heart Robin!

  13. What a great reminder that Life Is Good! You blog has been an encouragement to so many.. we’re praying for Stephanie and Elliot! Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. Jesus in his goodness has given His life so that I may live in Him. Each and every day I have the confidence knowing that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! Life is good….

  15. ~Kelly and Suzanne beat me to the punch~

    So, if I win, please have coin toss for K & S.


    Great news SusanD…..You won!!!!!!!

  16. Life is good because I have a fiance who loves me more than life and a family that never ceases to amaze me….and a tiny little niece that gets to come home today!!!!

  17. Life is good because I get to experience it all over again through the innocent eyes of sweet Ava girl. Everything is a new & beautiful experience to her!

  18. Reasons life is good:
    1. Ellie has dentist hair and a fo-hawk.
    2. You claimed me as your surrogate daughter.
    3. My dog went to the trainer and no longer tries to jump/tap dance on everything that lives and breathes.
    4. I have a Soy Peppermint Mocha in my hand.
    5. Physical Therapy starts for me Friday… hopeful that it will work! Feels like Christmas!
    6. I found a word in the dictionary yesterday that means “nicely shaped buttocks”.
    7. Four words: Purse. In. The. Yard.
    8. Did I mention the Soy Peppermint Mocha in my hand?
    9. The fact that I did not have to resort to rapelling into the hospital.
    10. No pain today.
    11. Free coffee cake this morning from the cute guy at starbucks!

    • Again, I’m not supposed to comment back today…but Katie (Kate) really, how can I not???
      Gotta love the dentist hair right? You are my girl and I will always call you Katie as opposed to…you know all the other things everyone else calls you…yea dog trainer…mine need training, you up for it? PT WILL work for your pain, I just know it…the Mayo Clinic Drs. are really smart…nevermind the word for nicely shaped bum? I need you to find a word- for bum going south quickly…what’s that word huh??? And as for #7…hummmm those were the days of extenuating circumstances…you know. You repelling into Stephie’s hospital room would have-aged me 10 more years and you’re already responsible for 20 of my years…it woul d not have: surprised me…I expect these things from you. NO PAIN YEA!!!!!!!!!(are you on narcotics or is this just a pain free day…either way YEA!!!) I only get a “yes ma’am from the cute guy at starbucks never anything free…
      I love you Katie , you are a one of a kind… smmmoooch

  19. We need more positive people out there with that “Life is Good” montra. Happiness is infectious.

  20. Oh Miss Gigi…If you thought Life was Good…Life has JUST started. The best is yet to be. Being a Gigi, or Nana, to little ones is the BEST! I have eight and the excitement is just as strong with each and every one. Oh what fun you will have! Tea parties, cuddling, sleep overs and lots of kisses, shopping, quietly reading books..while rocking, and then more cuddling. Being a mom was one of the best things in life, but I’ll tell you what! This time around I have the time to perfect this Nana thing! Have a beautiful day!

  21. Life is good because God allows me to get out of bed each day and enjoy the Love and Fellowship of an amazing family…………….The Roberts Clan.
    Thank you Lord for your Love and Mercy to me.

    Robin, your willingness to share with others is, to me, a reflection of how God wants us to love one another.

  22. Life is good because…
    My Father is sufficient for all my needs, each and every day, and I trust that His plans for my life are perfect…even if some of my prayers go unanswered.
    I’ve been blessed with a wonderful husband and best friend.
    I’ve been blessed with wonderful friends to share life with.
    I have a great family and great in-laws that love and support us in all things.
    I have two sweet puppy girls that make me laugh with their crazy antics.
    And I realize that everything else is just icing on the cake!

  23. Life is good, because no matter what troubles come our way they will never measure up to what’s truly important. Family, friends, and loved ones. 🙂 (in no particular order of course)

  24. I woke up this morning, God is merciful, gracious and good to a sinner such as I!

  25. Life is good for so many reasons… First of all because GOD is good! I have 3 healthy children, one being born early and has hydrocephalus but striving like any other 5 year old and in the top of her class in kindergarten… again, God is good! I’ve been with my husband for 10 years and we are still going strong! I have very good friends and supportive family… my car hasn’t caput on me yet. 🙂 I have no complaints, and no need to because life will continue on as it always does. Take the bad the comes and spit it back out… because it’s not welcomed in my life!

  26. Life is good because I am able to use the perks of my job to make the people in my life happy 🙂

  27. Life is great because I set 5 more goals this year and I will have one check off the list in 5 days (half marathon).

    Life is great because God is looking over my Stepdad through his battle with cancer.

    Life is great my family and friends are healthy and happy.


  28. Life is good because…
    Nothing can separate me from the love of God, Because my son is tearing my house apart (which means he has a perfectly healthy body and mind), Because God has answered our prayers for Ellie, Steph and Jon in His perfect way,
    Because my husband is coming home today, and… Because I have stumbled upon your blog and it has brightened my day!

  29. One of my favorite things to remember is….
    Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful!!!!

    Learning to appreciate the small and ordinary things of life we have been blessed with….is good.

    I need to wear a cute hat when I work out….maybe I will get better at it….and that will be good….Love someone with all your heart today….and it will make you feel “Life IS Good”

  30. Why I think Life is good? Life is good because you are beautiful, I am beautiful and if you really look at other’s we are all beautiful. We are all given a beautiful gift, the gift of life and the chance to make of it what we want. Life is good because if we truly believe and look past disappointments we will find hope, joy and usually precious angels sent down especially for each of us. Life is good because when I think I can’t go another day, I just look out my window and there will be a sweet bird, a single flower or child playing down the street and that will bring the smile back to my face… Life is really good, all we have to do is look!
    P.S. Life is good…because after years apart, I have found my sweet friend Robin and some days, she is that precious angel sent for me:)

  31. This is really thought provoking…and this may sound simplistic but life is good because there is a God and I’m not Him! His address never changes.
    You don’t need an international phone card to talk to Him, and He is the same yesterday today and forever…He loves me unconditionally, thank goodness, and He doesn’t even remember when I do awful things, He just forgives me. And He has put all the hidden messages in His word that are so much fun to find…. But if we are talking day to day life, and not life period…its good because I have a wonderful husband, not perfect, but I love him. I have been blessed with 4 wonderful children, they are pretty much perfect, and a fantastic extended family…and now on top of everything I’m a Auntie Granny…twice! The more I think about why life is good the “gooder” it gets! This was a great idea…we should do this everyday, no one would need prozac!

  32. LIfe is so good for my now just so different and wonderful being able to wake up to my adorable daughters face everyday. I sometimes wonder what got me up and out of bed and motivated before that.

  33. Life is good because no matter how frustrating my day has been, my 1 year old daughter can always make me smile.

  34. What a terrific post. I love Life is Good stuff. It is so cute and does remind us that everyday can be a good day if we make it that way. Thanks so much for this fabulous giveaway!

  35. Life is good and this is a great giveaway! Please count me in, thanks!

  36. Life is good b/c God is good! As I stand here and look at my precious 3 yr old..the unexpected gift from God..the unexpected gift from another woman to me, I am left speechless at His goodness. On the other hand as I sit here and wait for the phone to phone call that turns your whole life around…it’s cancer, my aunt has the waiting game..where is it?, what kind is it? how do you trat it?..I am left numb, but deep down with a peace still that God is good!
    Blessings to you Robin and your sweet family whom I remember when they were little themselves. 🙂

  37. Look at you, rockin’ and rollin’ the giveaway!!! 🙂 Silly thing.

    Life is good because Miss Elliot is COMING HOME WHERE SHE BELONGS!!!!! And it’s good because I know now that her dentist hair is like “Hermie” and not “Herbie.” And life is good because Vicky admitted to thinking it was Herbie too, so I wasn’t alone.

    Life is good because I met you, dear friend. Very, very good.

  38. Life is good because I have realized that all that I need is all that I have and all that I have is all that I need!

  39. Hi Robin,

  40. Life is good because He allows me to KNOW Him and His beauty. And I am blessed with an amazing husband and three precious boys that keep me busy. and I get to go take a quick nap! Yea!Love to you:)

  41. Life is good because I have never been rejected by GOD. No matter how many friends you have or who you try to please, rest assured that GOD loves just me for who I am. There is no pretending, no false bravado, no facades to put up. For me that is the truest blessing of all.

  42. Holla!

  48. Hello Robin,

    Here I am, dropping by to thank you for visiting DesignTies and leaving me such a terrific comment about my bathroom remodel, and I see that you’ve got a lovely giveaway happening!! Yippie!!

    So… life for me is soooo good because:
    I’m living my dream!
    Well… almost 😉
    It’s taken a long time for me to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I went to university, I raised a beautiful child on my own, I met, fell in love with and married a wonderful guy… and as much as those things made me happy, I knew there was something missing. I put the puzzle together a few years ago when I realized that I wanted to start my own Home Remodeling and Interior Decor business.

    The last year or so was spent dream about this idea… but over the last few months I’ve actually started to take strides toward making this dream come true. I have my first client (you should see the fireplace I designed/had built for her!), Kelly and I started DesignTies, I’m working with a “brand specialist” to create a logo, business card, website and marketing plan… heck!! I’m making this dream happen!!

    So that’s why life is good for me!!! 🙂

    Have fun reading through everyone’s entry – you have a lot of great responses above!

  49. Right now I have been struggling myself and while reading your blog I started thinking, it would help me if I stopped thinking about everything that is going bad right now and start thinking about what is good, so here goes.

  55. I woke up this morning and the things of yesterday are gone, the things of tomorrow are not here yet and today is what it is. God has it all and He loves me completely. All I have to do is just be, therefore life is good!!
