Yesterday was my 3 month blogiversary! I can’t believe I have been blogging for 3 months already…it feels like a part of my every day life now.  Click HERE to read my first (and boring!) post! 

I have really enjoyed documenting my adventures in prepping for my sprint triathlon and personal training certification, sharing my recipes and exercise routines, and a creative outlet for my interest in writing.  I hope you all have enjoyed following along with my adventures as well, I have enjoyed reading your comments and getting to know some of you along with all the support and encouragement I have gotten from my readers!

My poor hubby actually called in sick to work today…he never does that! He has a bad cold in his chest right now and is miserable.  So I sent him down to his “man cave” aka the basement with some Nyquil and the dogs to cuddle him up. 

My agenda:

4 mile run

Make chili in the crockpot

Trainer’s studio-get my body fat measured and repeat ass beating workout from Monday

Grocery store

Training session with my client



In honor of my 3 month blogiversary I am doing a little giveaway!  This is open to all my US readers. 


One sweet re-usable shopping bag featuring Stonyfield Oikos logo

2 coupons for FREE Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt

A sweet, hot pink, biking cap.  My mom got this cap at a biking store in Michigan and generously donated it for my giveaway.  In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month and the beauty of the hot pink I am including this in the pack. 



Leave a comment on this post letting me know the best Halloween costume you ever came up with! It can be for you, a couple costume, even a pet outfit!

For one additional entry in the giveaway, link to this contest/mention it on your blog and let me know you did so.

I will pick a winner and post it at tomorrow morning’s breakfast post.

    I was a piece of bubble gum that got stepped on! I wore all bubblegum pink and stuck a shoe to my midsection. It was fantastic :O).

    Happy Blogiversarry!

    Happy Anniversary! 🙂

    Unfortunately I’ve never had an AMAZING costume–they’ve all been pretty typical. My favorite though…WONDER WOMAN!

    Happy Bloggerversary! What an exciting day for you!
    I haven’t had the most creative recent costumes, but my favorite costume of mine was when my mom dressed me as a pumpkin when I was about 2 years old. Soooo cute!

    My family dresses in theme every year for my nephew’s bday party (always held on Halloween weekend). My favorite was when the theme was Scooby Doo and I dressed as Daphne! Fun and sassy with the white go-go boots!

    Oooo, I love Halloween!

    I think my favorite costume was my “cereal killer” costume. I dressed in normal clothes (because, in the immortal words of Wednesday Addams, “‘They look like everyone else.”). However, I accessorized with a cereal box impaled on a plastic meat cleaver that would shriek something awful when it hit something.

    I also made a really great homemade astronaut costume for my son one year. The kids are more into store-bought costumes, but they love playing dress-up, so costumes get year-round use in our house.

    I’d love to win, but sadly we don’t get Oikos over here. 😦
    However, my favorite Halloween costume was my mating dragonflies one. It was awesome!

    Happy Blogiversay!

    I was a giant hershey kiss one year. I used a big brown trash bag and made holes for my legs. Stuffed the bag with newspaper and formed the kiss shape. Wore a brown jacket for my top and did a homemade tag on a hat. It was fun, but temporary LOL!

    My favorite costume was the year we dressed our daschund as a hotdog…bun and all. Total cliche, but funny!

    Happy Blogiversary!
