The announcement email has officially been sent, congratulations to the winner of my 23rd Birthday Giveaway: Megan J from Oklahoma!
Congratulations Megan, I hope that you enjoy all of your goodies! xo
I cannot believe that there were over 775 entries for my birthday giveaway! You guys are truly amazing and your support is so incredible. Thank you so much for making my birthday so special. I am sitting on the couch with my foot propped up watching Shrek 2 on HBO because there is absolutely nothing on TV! Thank you so much for all of the get well soon comments and tweets! I had my surgery yesterday at 2:30, and the procedure lasted a little over 40 minutes. I came home with 4 stitches and two shiny crutches. I’m stylin’! My foot was numb for most of the day yesterday so I didn’t have any pain, but lots of awkward throbbing (omg I hate that feeling). I woke up this morning with an intense stinging pain.Yikes, I guess I won’t be doing much today… Talking about not doing much, my doctor told me that I could not be on my foot for 2 weeks until I get my stitches out. I was worried about being stationary and not exercising for a couple of weeks, but I have already been proved wrong. Crutches are the new cardio! Oh my, I forgot how exhausting it is to be on crutches. I take so many little things that my legs can do for granted. Getting up to even grab the remote turns into a 3 minute+ workout of hopping, one legged squatting, and balancing. P.S. has anyone attempted stairs with a foot injury? When I got home from the doctor I conquered the stairs on my hands and knees like a total noob. I have 2 weeks to master those bad boys!
Hello from the couch!
I just thought that I would keep you guys posted and let you know that I am working on my Q&A right now and am planning to get it posted later today or tomorrow morning. You guys submitted so many great questions!
My snack of choice at the moment is this awesome NUT-trition Cinnamon Raisin Granola Peanut Butter that Planter’s sent me yesterday. It has an actual crunch to it. Not your basic “crunchy peanut butter” crunch, but a granola crunch. I love it! The idea of cinnamon raisin peanut butter is brilliant, but a little ingredient listed as “hydrogenated vegetable oil” kind of bums me out. I wish that Planter’s would make a more natural salt-free, sugar-free, peanut butter without hydrogenated oil. This is totally inspiring me to make my own cinnamon raisin pb, or even almond butter!
Thanks again for your support! xo
