Fab Freebie: Nature’s Pantry

This week NatureBox is hooking someone up with a 1-year Deluxe Snacker subscription and a $300 gift card to Home Depot. That means each month a box of nutritionist-approved snacks will arrive at the winner’s door without any high fructose corn syrup, trans fats, or artificial sweeteners – and they can whip their pantry or their kitchen cabinets into shape with some new shelves, organizing systems, containers, caddies, and more thanks to that $300 Home Depot gift card. 

Please use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter (it might take a second to load, but it should eventually pop up below this paragraph). New customers can also get their first NatureBox at 50% off (that’s $9.95) with code YHL50. This giveaway is available to residents of the United States (but we have a worldwide giveaway coming next week!).

And Now For A Household Crafting Challenge

The other night Sherry and I came up with the idea to challenge each other to craft something using objects around our house – the catch being that the OTHER person gets to choose the objects. It wasn’t necessarily a competition, but we still came up with some ground rules:

We rock-paper-scissored and I lost, so I was up first. I exercised my right to choose one object and I picked this bright string/twine because I thought it would be functional plus it could bring in some color (I was going into it thinking I’d try to make some sort of art). Sherry, quite dramatically, hid her objects under a bowl to reveal to me.

Continuing the unnecessary dramatics, we decided to video tape my challenge – which I’m glad we did because what I ended up doing would’ve been hard to explain otherwise. So unfortunately you’ve gotta watch below to see the outcome. And if that’s not reason enough, might I entice you with these other teasers?

My craft turned out much better than I expected, wouldn’t you say? Now to figure out where to put it… especially some place where it won’t get rank. Oh yeah, and one other thing…

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS, Y’ALL. Hopefully you won’t ever actually find me crafting with mayonnaise. We just wanted to see if it was possible to create a more cringeworthy video than last year’s April Fools rap-fest. Ah, traditions. If you want to catch up on our other “just kidding” posts of yore, you can find them here: 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009. Hope you guys are enjoying some good pranks (and some MUCH better music than the likes of this video) today!

PS: We’ll be back with a completely legit giveaway later in the afternoon. Totally swear it’s for real. Like $500+ real.

PPS: In case you really did forget about the time Sherry hung out with Eminem, you can get that whole story here.
