12 Days of Gear Giveaways: Day 1 – For the Outdoor Woman

    Today begins our mega 12 Days of Gear Giveaways event. It’s a bit of a reflection on the year as we highlight some of our very favorites that keep our family going. However, more importantly, it’s a chance for us to partner together with these companies and thank YOU for being a part of our community.

    This blog has become so much more integrated into our lives than I ever thought it would. I’m not going to lie – sometimes it’s an exhausting labor of love. But, mostly, it’s been an incredible avenue for our family and an ever-giving source of inspiration and education for us. It challenges me – as a woman, a mother, a writer, an outdoor enthusiasts, an athlete and a wife. And I love a good challenge.

    Today, we are thanking the women first. Today’s giveaways are some of my favorites.

    If you are new here, be sure to go to our START HERE page for a better idea of what we’re all about!


    The details: Since we prefer to spread the love a little bit, we will have three winners today.  You may enter all giveaways if you would like, or just pick and choose. They are only open for 72 hours so be sure to get your entries in early.

    Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and G+. Not only are they a way to keep up with what is happening here on the blog, but we also use those avenues as a way to give an everyday glimpse into our life, share some additional tips and inspiration, and report on some of our favorite findings on the web.

    1.  Stonewear Designs Niva Jacket + Dash Pant

    The Niva is new this season and what I put on more than anything else over our last 3 weeks of traveling, camping, hiking, and visiting the sights in Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico. It has a cozy fleece interior, but is light enough for layering.

    The Dash pant is great for being active all winter. Again, cozy and moves with you to remain active. I only wish it came in lengths…..

    2.  $75 Gift card to Mountain Khakis

    Their women’s line is expanding every year and this season is some of my favorites. Check out their flannels, jackets and pants for work and play. In case you missed it, I recently featured them as part of our “Fashion Friday” segment. I did a short review on many of their pieces there (so be sure to check it out!).


    3.  Haiku Journey Bag + Travel Set

    I seriously love my Haiku bags a little more every day – they are my favorite functional AND cute bags by far. They performed exceptionally well for travel, hold up to serious use and abuse and have a little feminine flare to keep things fun. I pack my Journey tote to the brim with heavy school books and it doesn’t even bat an eye (or rip a seam).

    The Journey is a large tote with one zipped interior pocket (perfect for items you don’t want to get lost in the main compartment) and an outer pocket (not zipped). I love that it comes with short handles AND the option to clip on the long handle for wearing it over your shoulder. I choose to use both. Paired with the travel set, it’s a great option for travel OR just everyday use and running around.

    Also, be sure to take a peek at the Bucket Bag and the Jaunt. Love, love, love them.

    TODAY for Cyber Monday, ALL their bags are 40% off on their site! Don’t miss this exceptional deal. Even if you win the giveaway, you’ll want more than one. Really.

        Thank you for hosting such a wonderful Giftaway! I really enjoy your blog and watching your beautiful family grow up in front of our eyes.

      3. I want the jackets and pants so bad! love hiking in Utah but winter normally keeps me inside. This year I’m changing that around.
