Hi all and happy Tuesday! My day has been flying by so far. After work, I came home to clean up the house a bit, prepare my dinner for later, and head out the door to teach Body Attack. My dinner later will include the rest of my buttercup squash, brussels, and an apple which I roasted in the oven. I topped them with a little balsamic vinegar and lots of parmesan cheese(excuse the messy picture):
Later I plan to add a bundle of almonds for some nice crunch.
Not sure what else will be on the menu.
And now for a fun giveaway! The great people at Aurorae sent me a FABULOUS new yoga mat to test out. The mat has great texture and a nice stick to it.
Even better, you have the chance to win one! Just go to the Aurorae website and let me know which color mat you would want and why. The contest is open to US residents with or without a blog! For an extra entry, link back and leave me a SEPARATE comment letting me know you put up the link. The contest will be open until 11:59 pm on Thursday, December (is it really December already?) 3rd.

I would pick Seamist - nothing wrong with a little harmony! And, I love the color!
Yummy dinner. :-)
Ocean. I love the color blue, plus its calming.
Purple for me please:) Great giveaway! I have a green mat now, but a new one is always a good thing:)
I'd like the violet one because of the spiritual, healing and calming of it - perfect for yoga!
Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I definitely like the violet :)
Yum, I am eating that squash right now.
I would love any shade of green because it's my favorite color, it reminds me of Rocky from the movie The Three Ninjas, it makes me think of the shades under trees, and it reminds me of my favorite 5th grade teacher (Her favorite color was green too).
:) have a good night teaching!
Black....infinity....Strength, Sophistication, Professionalism, Potential of Endless Possibilities...Everything I'm not and aspire to be. The possibility of actually doing yoga are limited, maybe a nice black mat will get me going.
Your leftovers look yummy! I made a squash, leek, and apple gratin for Thanksgiving, which was DELISH- and I bet the flavors are similar!
My fave is definitely solar!
ohhh..i like ocean!! so pretty!
Violet is so pretty!
I've been wanting a new yoga mat! I'd like the "solar" one ; )

Confession: I just threw away a perfectly good butternut squash that I knew I would not cut up.

If I won the mat I would choose OCEAN!!! I love the water and the ocean so this is an obvious choice for me!! Love the color :)
Oh I love the violet, its so pretty!
I love the description of infinity, but I like the Ocean color he best because it most closely matches one of my wedding colors :) Thanks for the chance!
I would choose Orange (Solar), because it is my favorite color! And orange just makes people smile.
Another busy day in (and out of!) Itzy's Kitchen! ;)Yum! Your dinner combos always leave me drooling!! Hope you had fun teaching!
Awesome giveaway, dear! I've had the same Target yoga mat for about 5 years-- so it's about time for an upgrade haha. I loooove the green one. So calming!

Hmm...I should try that combination...squash, brussels and apple. Sounds delicious!
Ocean...hands down!!! There is nothing more relaxing than admiring my favorite color while learning new yoga poses!!!
How fun! I pick violet for the calming :)
I'd go with the seamist. Soothing, Renewal, Intellect, Nature, Self Control, Gentle & Harmonious- these are all qualities I need as I try and be a good mom:)
Tomorrow is my 35th birthday! I would love the ocean color mat. I live in Hawaii and would love to bring a little bit of the outdoors to the studio!
I would want Solar because it'd add a little color and warmth to the chilly winter days of MN!
I would love to win the Aurorae mat in Solar :D I could definitely use a daily dose of stability and inspiration!
My yoga mat is SO. OLD. I would love a new one, and I would choose BLACK for STRENGTH and the POTENTIAL FOR ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES. How cool is that? Love it! How awesome you got a new mat and the opportunity to give one away too!
I love the focal point icon too! What a great idea!
Love the violet one!
A roasted apple sounds like a lovely additon to roasted veggies!!
I like the violet... Spiritual, soothing, healing... What yoga is all about to me :)
I love the color solar....it is bright and vibrant.
I love it in seamist!
The solar color was made for me =) So bright and invigorating!!
I've linked it to my post!
I'd choose black for strength!
solar...yummy orange to remind me to seek stability+warmth in the everyday.
It is kind of hard to decide since each color is described so nicely, but I would have to go with Seamist for the calming effect.
I just linked to this post on my blog. Have to say, it's an awesome giveaway.
Ohhh man.... its a close tie between the purple and yellow! So fun :)
I like the blue one!
I would love the black "infinity" one because it stands for strength and that is what I hope to achieve through yoga - both physically and mentally. Gotta love yoga :)
I could seriously JUST eat love slivered almonds alone! Mmmmm love em!
I'd love the Seamist mat!
great giveaway! i would love a purple one! the food looks wonderful as always!
I'd love the green one!
I would like violet - Love!
Saw this from my daughter's blog, gethealthywithheather. We often do yoga together, but I don't have my own mat. Would love a purple one. Lynda
my favorite mat is the black one- so sophisticated :)
The seamist color is beautiful!
Definitely the violet one. My favorite color is purple.
I love the seamist! It is such a calming color which would surely help me to relax in my new flow yoga (just started these last few weeks) since right now as soon as I start sweating I'm slipping and sliding all over the place! :) Holding myself up takes almost as much strength as just holding the pose! hehehhee!
Seriously though, this mat would be well loved! My children and I are all trying to learn yoga without mats and Lord knows, we would love any color, just something to hold us together so we can try these fun new moves! :)
hey there Erica! thanks for hosting this giveaway. I would love the infinity color (black) because it would "go" with everything. I am just starting to pick up yoga and it would be a great to have my own yoga mat =)
just linked back =)
Oh my gosh, I love the violet color one! So pretty!
Solar would be my choice, thanks!
i love the Ocean color - blues calm me down :)
Yay for a giveaway--I need a new yoga mat for sure :-) The purple one would be my kinda mat!
I totally need a new mat. Green for me!
Violet be my pick. Why? It's what my eyeballs were drawn to first.
Reminds me of the scent of lavender too, which I love dearly...
Ooo! I like the "Infinity" mat. It's so classy!
I would love the ocean color since it would be for my husband if I won. It's a manly color.
I love the Ocean one b/c yoga relaxes me and allows my inner self to show the relaxed, attentive and patient person inside.
I would love the violet because it is soothing and calming and that is what I think of when I think of doing yoga!
oooh i would def want the solar- which is most similar to my first ever yoga mat, that got tooo dirty, and threw away. :( i miss that one!
linking back :)
I would loooove the Seamist one! I'm JUST starting to do yoga (like, literally this week did my first DVD!), and would love a nice mat :)
I was thinking that I didn't need this mat because I already have a mat and thought that I would let someone else have a shot. However, after thinking it over, I could really use this mat so that I can do my workout at home as well without having to lug a mat b/t school and home!
The violet color is so pretty.
i would definitely choose "seamist." it's so relaxing, plus green is my favorite color so it would match everything i have!
Ocean FOR SURE! I loves it! Have a great night, Erica!
I would want the "ocean". I need calming in my life. You know it's hectic. We all need to be calm and visualize while we do yoga. Thanks.
The Seamist, so relaxing...
Ocean is SO pretty!
I would like the Solar one
I like your blog and am hoping to be regular in my Yoga practice.
