Five Things Friday and the Winner of the 13.1 Half Marathon Necklace Giveaway!

I was in New York this week for work. Wouldn't you know, the first time I visit New York City in five years, it just so happens to host the coldest temperatures New York has seen in 20. Ugh. I moved to Texas for a reason, those seven degree temperatures are not for me. Are they for anyone, really? So when I came home from a four day trip in the cold city, I came home to packages...and more packages! I had some good mail days while I was gone, and since I wasn't home for four days and three nights I got them all in one day!

New York is Cold.

On too many days the mailbox is overflowing with bills and junk, it is nice when there is a happy package (or five) waiting for me.

It seemed like the perfect opportunity for...


Five Things Friday: Good Mail Days (in order of excitement):

5. Almay Shadow Softies from Klout:

I can't wait to try this out!

4. Resistance Tubes:

I bought this because my travel schedule is looking sort of heavy in the near future and resistance bands are great for travel...and for a reason that will be explained further in my #1 package.

3. My Race Ragz:

I won a custom made shirt by through a Metamorfit blog giveaway! Guess what I put on it? What would you put on your custom shirt? Let me know in the comments. I can't wait to wear this to a race!

4. Koss Headphones:

I am so excited, I received these Koss headphones for a campaign I am working on for Fitfluential. Look for a blog post soon with my thoughts on Koss and a running playlist for those fast short runs. I love being a Fitfluential ambassador. While I am on the subject of Fitfluential...did you know anyone can join Fitfluential?

5. Jillian Michaels: Body Revolution:

I am pretty excited about this! I have been majorly slacking on my strength workouts so I thought I needed a kick in the butt, and who better to kick my butt than Jillian Michaels? I love that it is a progressive 90 day program. I am ready to get started with these 30 minute workouts to get me back on track. This is the main reason I bought those resistance bands, because the program uses weights and resistance bands. I will be sure to blog about my progress!

Ways to (legally) stalk me:


  1. I got the same Klout perk eyeshadows! Plan to try them tomorrow. :)

    1. me too! I'm excited! let me know what you think!

  2. I got my Team Tough Chik race tank!!

    I am completely confused about Klout. Whenever I log in to the site it says I have perks but I am never able to claim them. And I don't understand how to use Klout in general.

    I hope you like your earphones; I LOVE mine!
