Hoping all my American friends enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday!  Also hoping everyone survived Black Friday, gave some love on Small Business Saturday, and got some gonga deals on Cyber Monday!

We had a very quiet Thanksgiving with just the 3 of us, but it was wonderful family time.  I cooked (close your mouth)… and the only thing that could have been potentially disastrous was I forgot to put the ham in the oven.  About an hour after putting the chicken in, James looked at me and asked, “How long is the ham supposed to take?”  Oops.

I chose not to partake in the madness of Black Friday and went to the gym instead.  James opted outside as well.  We are headed to San Antonio this coming weekend for the Rock ‘N’ Roll race and he will be attempting the half-marathon (by my side? behind me? in front of me? lol).  He has come a long way from 2 months ago when he couldn’t even walk to the end of the block without excruciating pain.

Anyway… today is #GivingTuesday.  It is the Global Day of Giving Back.  It is time to help out those nonprofits who selflessly try to help make the world a better place with so little funding.  Please consider giving just a little bit to your favorite charity… even $5 makes a difference.

And in honor of #GivingTuesday, I am doing a fun little giveaway to support MY favorite charity and to say a big Thank You to You for all your support of me and my blog.  One lucky winner will receive 1 eco-friendly tote bag, 1 holiday ornament with card featuring our Patient of the Year (the cutest little porcupine you’ve ever seen who looks fluffy, not prickly), 1 set of 8 blank wildlife cards featuring 4 patients from our center, and 1 wildlife calendar featuring our patients which has all kinds of fun animal facts on the inside.

If you are interested, please leave me a comment below.  I’ll leave it open until next Tuesday, December 5th, whereby AJ will draw a name out of his Happy New Year hat to announce the winner.

Until then… I hope you have a great week!

      Hey Rob… can you send me an email to neveradullbling at gmail? If you’re still interested in this drawing, you are the winner. Long story short… I entered a couple of people who didn’t really want to be entered, they just wanted to comment, which I greatly appreciate, but AJ and I drew 4 names and you were one of them. Sooo, if you’re still interested in this fun little grab bag, I can get it out to you tomorrow. 😀 (Rodney needs a home, lol)

    Happy Thanksgiving!! It was a quiet one for us as well. I did venture out on Black Friday, but only to two stores and it wasn’t until the afternoon!!

    You’re so generous with your giveaway, I’m sure all the critter cards are adorable!!

    A quiet Thanksgiving is just the perfect way to celebrate, or it is so in my books. I am not a fan of big noisy gatherings though once in a while it cannot hurt. Your giveaway sounds lovely! Now a real porcupine or hedgehog would be most welcome too 😀 xx

      I agree with you… noisy gatherings are okay once in awhile, but not all the time, lol! I think I’ll have to take a hedgehog over a porcupine… they’re smaller, hehe!
