Honey Bunches of Oats “Send a Smile, Win a Trip” contest

Starting your day smiling can be difficult – especially during the weekdays! Nobody knows this better than yours truly. If you need confirmation, you can just ask my family. Although I am a friendly person a little later in the day, my best moments don’t happen first thing in the morning.

One thing that would make me happier in the mornings is to have breakfast brought to me in bed. Am I dreaming? Perhaps. The truth is that nobody ever brings me breakfast in bed, although they really should try it sometime, as it just might improve my unpleasant morning disposition. You know how it is…you crawl/stumble out of bed, trip over a few cats or kids and then drag yourself into the kitchen. Everybody needs something immediately it seems, before I have even had my first cup of jet fuel (coffee). The good news is that I have found a way to cheer me up in the mornings with minimal effort.

Honey Bunches of Oats to the rescue! I have always loved how simple cereal is, but I also need a tasty cereal to really make me smile. Honey Bunches of Oats is one such cereal, and with several varieties to choose from, I don’t believe I will ever get bored. In fact, the yummy goodness of this cereal even makes me kind of happy. My family loves them too, and I love that they can “make” their own breakfast (and that definitely puts a smile on my early morning face!).

Honey Bunches of Oats wants you to take a photo of that beautiful smile and spread it across the country!  When you do this,  you will have a chance to win a trip anywhere in the United States!  You should see my smile now!  Oh the places I would go…

To enter the contest, simply visit the Honey Bunches of Oats Facebook page, and click on the “Send a Smile Win a Trip” app. From there you will be asked to upload a photo of your smiling face to Instagram. Make sure you tag it with #HoneyBunchesofSmiles, as well as the city you’re in and the city that you are sending your smile to (this is also the city that you are hoping to win a trip to!).  As an example, this is how mine would read:  #HoneyBunchesofSmiles #Pleasant Hill to #Maui. The #HoneyBunchesofSmiles contest ends April 1, so start smiling and start snapping (photos that is!). You can enter once per day until the end of the contest!

I also have a giveaway for you here, that I hope will make you smile in the mornings!


One (1) winner will receive 3 assorted boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats!

Open to US only. Giveaway ends March 31st.
