Hey friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and (as always) that your week is off to a great start. I’ve got a fun little story about my weekend to share with you today and it ends with a delicious giveaway!
Let’s rewind to one year ago for a second. Last July (when Greg and I were still living in Maryland), we had taken a trip out to Colorado to celebrate our one year anniversary. During that week we attended this awesome event put on by the Denver Parks & Rec. Department called Fitness on the Rocks. I had so much fun that morning and knew that I definitely wanted to come to the event the following year! The event was this past Saturday and I was able to attend again.
This year was a lot different than last. Instead of going as a participant, I worked at the event representing one of my favorite new companies: FlapJacked!
I posted a review of Flapjacked high protein pancake mix last month and it’s become a staple in my kitchen ever since! I’m also very proud to announce that I’m representing this awesome company as an ambassador. If you aren’t familiar with them yet, please go check out their website and the story of how the idea for FlapJacked was born- it will touch your heart. The founders, David and Jenn Bacon, couldn’t be nicer people and they happen to live (literally) right around the corner from me!
Be sure to check out FlapJacked on Facebook- and show ‘em some
Back to this weekend…
My good pal Paige and I (along with two other ladies named Emily and Ondra) teamed up with the Bacon family for some FlapJacked fun at Fitness on the Rocks.

Paige got to my house in the 5 o ‘clock hour on Saturday so that we could head down to Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison. The event started at 7:00 am, so we wanted to get there a little early to help set up our booth. (The rest of the crew got there at 4:30 am to start making pancakes for all of the volunteers!)
Jenn, the pancake master showed us how it’s done.
We met up with the two other FlapJacked girls to discuss our plan of attack:
The star of our booth was definitely the “wheel of fun” (or as some referred to it: the wheel of death.) It featured twelve different challenges for participants to do in order to get free 4 oz. samples of FlapJacked products.
The wheel was so much fun and really drew a lot of attention! Here’s a few shots of a few of some of the participants in action:
A crazy round of leapfrog (Mystery Challenge!)…
A good old-fashioned plank off…
Walking planks on a Bosu (ouch!)…
I have no idea how many participants came through to spin the wheel and have a little friendly competition- we constantly had a line of people waiting! Everyone had so much fun.
Paige and I also really enjoyed talking to people about how much we liked the FlapJacked products and giving out some tasty samples!
I really enjoyed seeing how much people loved the taste of the pancakes (and seeing the list of ingredients that they’re made from!). It feels good to represent a company that cares so much about what goes into the products!
The three flavors: Banana Hazelnut, Buttermilk and Cinnamon Apple:
I change my mind each week about which flavor is my favorite (this week it’s Cinnamon Apple!).
The stats (in the same order as the products shown above):
All three mixes contain from high quality whey protein (the purest form you can find!), quinoa and coconut flours and contain absolutely no artificial anything!
Now, about that giveaway I mentioned earlier…
You already know I’m a fan of FlapJacked. I’m confident that if you like pancakes (and who doesn’t love pancakes?!) that you’ll be a big fan of FlapJacked too. You can purchase the mixes online (available in three different sizes!) and if you live in Colorado, you’ll be able to pick them up at King Soopers stores next week!
And guess what? ONE very lucky reader will win a 12 oz. package… of all three flavors!
