It's a Great Day to be Me...and One of You!

Yes, I have the winner of the contest, and yes I am going to put it at the bottom of this post, or am I? Maybe I am going to hid it within the post just so you will have to read the entire thing because I am just that type of person. But since there is so much great news to be brought to you today, I'm gonna be bringing it to you all bullet style.
  • Umm. Can we say 57 followers! Hello AWESOME news. Welcome to all our newbies who have chosen to "suit up" with us. It feels so awesome everytime we get a new one. Seriously, we celebrate with a geeky high-five whenever a new picture pops up! Feel free to introduce yourself if you haven't already because we would love to get to know you!
  • I myself have won my first TWO contests. And they were ones I so needed to win. The first was from Laurie @ The (Mis)Adventures of a Jogging Stroller Mom. It was her 3 yr bloggy anniversary and it was a ton of loot including socks, a water bottle, headbands (all of which I still don't own!) The second was from Keri the Blue Eyed Runner and it was a foam roller! Everyone has been saying I need a foam roller for my hips and butt and then one just falls from the heavens into my laps. I feel like such a lucky girl!
  • Told you I was going to hide it. So the Winner of our $40 CSN giveaway as chosen by random.org was................ #26  Forward Foot Strides said...I would buy one of the pet beds, which I've had my eye on for ages! So congratulations Katherine at Forward Foot Strides you've won. Just email me your info and I will get it to the CSN folks right away. If you didn't win keep your eyes open for more giveaways because these are fun and we just like spoiling you guys! Plus I know you guys like reading us for pure enjoyment too!
  • My son has stopped puking. Nuff said.
  • It isn't raining, yet, so hopefully that means I can get on the bike a bit tonight in addition to my run since the rain kept us indoors last night. Did I mention I love Orlando Bloom? (Watching the first Pirates will remind you of that!)
  • And finally, Ben and Jerry's was on super sale at the grocery store. Bad for diet. Great for training motivation. And for watching Orlando Bloom. He would die for her! Swoon!
Hope you are all having a Great Day too!

You are lucky!!!

Ice cream is my weakness in the summer! Yummy!

Stacie said...

I gave in to some ice cream temptation yesterday. That seems to happen when I feel like crap. Feeling a little better today.

We LOVE Orlando here. Maybe that will help cure me :)

Congrats to your winner and on your wins as well!!!!!

Yummy Ben & Jerry's. :) Hooray for you for being so lucky! Although Orlando Bloom is certainly nice I'd have to consider myself a Johnny Depp kind of girl mmm yummy. :)

Hooray for winning some awesome giveaways!
Yum...I love Ben and Jerry's, although I haven't had it in a long time. Maybe I'll go get some this afternoon to celebrate my 16mile run I did today! :)
