And The Winner Is…

Thank you so much to everyone for reading and commenting on my post about beavers and entering my little giveaway!  I received such a great response!  My hope is one day we can all understand how important beavers are to our ecosystem (not to mention they’re cute as all get out)!


So on to the important stuff… the winner!  I truly wish I could send everyone a beaver ornament, but unfortunately, there can be only one (I’ll send a wildlife calendar to the first one who can tell me what movie that line is from… no googling)!  The Child did the drawing, see the video below (which is only about a minute).  It’s amazing how much he’s grown up from last year (you can see that video here).

So if the winner could kindly contact me, I’ll get the package off to you posthaste.


Just to prove the drawing was legit, haha!

As well, a big thank you to my readers/my friends for following my blog, my running, and my life!  You are much appreciated!  (And yes, this song is on one of my running playlists, ;D)

By the way, James has posted his race recap on Tulsa… he did a great job!  You can read about that here.

Happy Mother’s Day

It’s been a brutal week for me.  I was diagnosed with Influenza type A and have been basically confined to bed since last Monday night.  To top it off, my son came down with a wicked fever yesterday, and he, too, has been diagnosed with type A flu.

I’m feeling better now, basically normal, so I hope to do some catching up with my wonderful blogging friends, please forgive my absenteeism.

In the meantime, it’s time for Jamesy’s Motivational Music Monday again already!  Do you have a song that gets you up and motivates you?  Give him a visit and share your song.  We all need new music!

However, as it’s Mother’s Day, I would like to dedicate this particular post to every mom out there.  While your child may not necessarily always tell you, know that they love and appreciate you and everything you’ve ever been to them:  caregiver, nurse, teacher, guidance counselor, chef, maid, etc., … and they always will.

To all the moms (and dads substituting as mom), I truly hope you’ve had a beautiful day.

One of the greatest groups of all time …Boys II Men … “A Song For Mama” 

Have a great week!
