Tuesday Tid-Bits

Happy Tuesday everyone! I have a ton of random tidbits to share today. I hope you don't mind my overuse of bullet points :-)

* First, if you missed my post from yesterday, my friend Ashley is letting me giveaway a $25 credit to use online at Origami Owl. For some reason, I could NOT get my rafflecopter widget to work yesterday so we are doing this giveaway old school with comments. You get 2 chances to win this certificate but in order to do so, you have to leave 2 separate comments: 1. Leaving a comment letting me know you liked Ashley's Facebook page and 2. leaving a comment on my giveaway post sharing your favorite charm. If you have already commented once but forgot to do it a second time, be sure to do so before Saturday when I pick the lucky winner!!

* It's going to be in the 60s today and somehow, someway, I AM going to get out for a run...even if I have to push 80 pounds in my BOB stroller.

* My mom and I launched a new item at ThePolkaDotPosie yesterday. It's our brand new Rosie Posie Tote and I am IN LOVE WITH IT!!!

{Please note the straps are a little longer in this pic than they will be in person. After our test run, we've decided to make them 22". An updated pic will be up soon}

* Because I am getting desperate to lose these 5 holiday pounds I have hanging around my midsection, I've decided to start a little challenge with DietBet. My friend Kodi tweeted about it last week and I thought it was the perfect way to get myself motivated! It was also on the TODAY SHOW and a lot of people have found great success with it! Here is a little video of how it works:



So basically, you bet a certain amount of money that you can lose 4% of your body weight in 4 weeks (for me that is around 5.5 pounds). Then you invite other friends and family and they bet as well. At the end of the challenge, all of the participants that make their weightless goal split the pot!! If this sounds like something you would like to participate in, follow this link and join the group!! I can't wait to get started.

* Last night I got to sneak away for drinks and dinner with some of my favorite girls and I was reminded, once again, just how important these nights are! I am so lucky to have such a great group of girls in my life :-)

* I have some AWESOME Valentine's Day printables to share with all of you on Monday. I will have Valentine's Day Bingo, Some cupcake toppers/treat bag tags AND some printable classroom Valentine's cards!!! I am so excited to get to work on these projects this weekend.

* And finally, I am SO CLOSE to being finished with my planner pages. They are coming along so beautifully but it's a LOT more work than I realized, especially since the shop has been keeping me busy this week (and that's a great thing). But stay tuned...they will be coming soon and I've managed to incorporate ALL of your requests. Meal planning pages anyone?? :-)

Alright guys...time to run. Addie and I have a date to make some homemade marshmallow fluff today!! One of my dearest friends released her first cookbook earlier this year and I have been DYING to try some of the recipes.

You can find her book mmm...marshmallows here and while you are at it, preorder her newest
