My favorite is the whale planner. I am assuming I can still win the prize even if I have no kids? :) I'll give the loot to my nephews if I win!

Meg - the back pack is awesome. LL Bean is such nice stuff and the their back packs last a long time (good quality material). Love all the extras inside, especially the supplies from CVS and the planner is the best part !!! Have any of you ever lost your cell phone or blackberry ... having a paper planner is a great back up!

Thanks PEG.

Jennifer B. - I think I've seen it at Mrs Green's Market in Stamford. I tried some samples they sent me. It's great because sometimes I get so sick of drinking plain old water.

I love that the giveaway has something for me, somethings for my son, and things that I can use in my classroom for students that don't have all their supplies yet!
