Friday Round-Up

Let’s start with A Toy for Every PupRebecca of Blueberry Smiles is spearheading this holiday collection drive to collect toys for shelter pups.  Please take a moment to check this out and consider providing a toy for a pup who is still waiting for their forever home.

Kostas went from shelter dog to King of the Empty PB Jars

I was the lucky winner of Lauren’s monthly KIND product giveaway.  Holy Smokes!  Thank you Lauren and KIND!  (Follow Oatmeal After Spinning so you can enter future giveaways–and read more about Lauren who is a cool blogger.)

Thank you, Thank you!!  Reusable bag, long sleeve t-shirt, 4 boxes of bars, lots of granola

What could be better on a Friday than another video of Sofia Grace and Rosie?

It’s time to bring back the jokes.  Tuck these away for a little Thanksgiving Day ice breaker.

Why did the turkey join the rock band?

Because he had drumsticks.

What should you wear to Thanksgiving?

A HAR-Vest

Any good jokes to share?  Do you like turkey?  It’s one of my favorite protein sources.

Friday Round-Up

Longest week ever?

I started out with work travel Sunday, arrived in DC by 12:30am Monday (flight delays), and was back at the airport 12 hours later.  I loved a sign at the hotel:  “Have an uncomplicated day.”  Thank you, I’ll try.

Walking to my meeting, I met a fellow Wisconsinite – he was hard to miss…Packers sweatshirt, Brewers shorts.  Packer fans, Aaron Rodgers was on 60 Minutes.

There was also an election this week that didn’t get much air time.  Politics runs in my family…my nephew is on student council, and now I’m on the condo board.  Last night I gave my stump speech and defeated my opponents 🙂

Two favorite duos who appear on Ellen met in the green room.  Genius brothers Rainer and Atticus meet pink princesses Sophia Grace and Rosie.

A big thank you to Lauren--I won her most recent KIND Bar giveaway and I’m anxiously awaiting the delicious goodies!  I’ve tried a few flavors before and am looking forward to even more.

Fellow Girls Gone Sporty Ambassadors sounded off on best at home fitness equipment.  My choice – my iPod and Nike Fit.

And finally, a picture of bi-partisanship at its finest.

What’s your favorite at-home fitness equipment?  Have you ever run for any type of ‘office’?  Favorite part of the past week?  Favorite KIND Bar flavor?
