Spring Bake

I’ve been in spring break mode lately. You might have noticed since I didn’t bake last weekend. I think it’s because I recently went on a vacation which I haven’t done in a couple of years and it felt awesome to just relax and do nothing. And now being back home I can’t stop enjoying the warmth that’s finally taking over. Spring is probably my favorite time of the year. Unfortunately, in the south, you only have about seven minutes to enjoy the season before the hot and humid heat of summer takes over. Okay, okay – I’m exaggerating a little. It probably lasts eleven minutes. ; ) So you’ve got to enjoy all of them while they last. And I’m trying.

Got Spring Fever, too? Take a break with me and enter this sweet Spring Bake Giveaway for a chance to win a KitchenAid Stand Mixer… in one of the following pastel colors. Plus a white and silver choice in case springy isn’t your speed. Me? I have the pink one, but man, that aqua sky is calling my name. And the ice and crystal blue. too. I’m glad I don’t have to choose.

Enter the Spring Bake Giveaway for a chance to win a KitchenAid 5-quart Artisan Series Stand Mixer

  • To enter, just leave a comment on this post answering the following question.
  • What’s your favorite thing to do or place to go on vacation? Oh and pick your pastel, too.
  • Deadline to enter is Wednesday, April 24th, at 7:00 pm ET. Time’s Up. Winner announced below.
  • One winner will be chosen at random and announced sometime Wednesday evening on this post.

Good luck!

 

Okay, we have a winner. And the winner picked pink. I thought for sure ice or aqua sky would win. So many of you guys love that color. And me too.

The winner is …… Comment # 6625. Yay Veronica! You are getting a pink mixer! And now I totally want to go on vacation again. You guys have fun ideas.

I could live at the beach, so I would definitely say that my favorite place to be would be the beach… Living in California, I’m so psyched for this summer! Can’t wait to be there all the time. :D I love the pastel pink. It’s so gorgeous!

I’m a researcher, and when there is “vacation time” I like to stay exactly where I am. I usually revel in having a completely open schedule to 1) fly around on my bike, 2) work on interesting projects, and 3) bake colorful things, of course!

I would love to go to Europe on spring break!
It’s hard to decide between aqua sky, & ice but I think my daughter would be mad if I didn’t go with the pink. :)

Alisha said...

I LOVE a tropical vacation! Almost anywhere tropical is fine with me. Just give me a beach, a fruity drink, and a good book and I’m good!

As for the mixer, I’d have a difficult time choosing between Crystal Blue and Aqua Sky. And, upon further thought, I might have to throw Majestic Yellow into the mix.

What an awesome way to celebrate spring season ^ ^ !
The perfect vacation for me is doing whatever, going wherever – with my husband. It can be a simple picnic by the river, a random road trip just outside town, staying at home and watching films – really doesn’t matter as long as we’re together ;)
Cheers!

My favorite vacation spot is actually my cabin in North Dakota. I may be the only person on the planet who considers North Dakota their favorite place to visit! I would say, though, that one trip I’d love to repeat is the month I spent in Bali, Indonesia.

I know we’re supposed to pick one of the pastels, but it’s still very much winter here in Minnesota and that silver is calling my name!

I love traveling so for me that question is hard I’d probably have to narrow it to anywhere in Europe or Disney because Disney is so much fun!!!

I haven’t had much of a vacation in the past years. But I really really love to go on picknicks or just sit in a café, watching people passing by, enjoying some coffee and cake. Since this is possible practically everywhere, I sometimes go on Sunday afternoon vacations ;)

I would really love the pistachio-colored mixer. I have wanted a KitchenAid for years now. ^^

Amanda said...

My favourite vacation is a good mix of relaxation but also seeing and touring new things and places. I want to see the world.

And they are all beautiful, can’t I have one for each season hah. But I think I’d choose the aqua sky or pistachio.

Also, I’m in Canada, and spring hasn’t quite made its way up North yet, we had a bit of a snow storm yesterday, Saturday April 21st. But it did get warm today, so no snow left on the ground!

Thanks for this fun contest! My favorite place to vacation is Topsail Beach, NC. Granted, I haven’t been to too many places in my life, but I really do love this quiet beach town.

Ashley said...

My favorite thing to do on vacation is walk around town. It’s my favorite way to get to know any place, actually, and it’s led me to things I would never have found if I’d gone by a strict plan or followed an app’s recommendations.

Crystal blue is a lovely “pastel.” (And a great color for the beach!)

If I’m going to a city, I have to visit at least one museum. If its the beach, I gotta spend an afternoon walking up and down the shore.
