Free 4 All Fridays!

*UPDATED*

Dear Friday,

I am always glad when you visit, but some weeks, I have missed your presence so much that my whole body and soul aches for your return. This is one of those weeks. If we were in a movie, I'd be running towards you in slow motion with "Chariots of Fire" playing in the background. I DO love you so, Friday.

Yep, it's been another exhausting week. I've gotten a bit more sleep, and have somehow been MORE exhausted because of it. (Go figure!) I've had to put my Couch to 5K training on hold due to some killer shin splints (per orders of my doctor - for up to 6 weeks, he said), so I picked up kettleballs this week. If you haven't looked into these, do so. They look silly, but in 1 less than 20 min workout, I worked some muscles so hard (without feeling like it at the time) that I waddled like a pregnant lady and had to lower myself into chairs like I was in my third trimester all day the next day. (Hint: It works those inner thighs, hamstrings, glutes and lower back. Yikes!) I'll eventually double-up the workouts (doing two of the 3 offered at a time) to get in more cardio, but I figured my first week learning to sling this five pound ball close to my head, that I better start slowly. :)

I am heading out tomorrow (or probably tonight by the time you read this) to a scrapbooking retreat with my Crazy Aunt. I always enjoy a little one on one time with her ('cause she's CRAZY fun and CRAZY silly), plus I'm WAY behind on my scrapbooking (which is rare for me) AND I'm kind of looking forward to a day with no diapers, no housecleaning, and no sitting in front of a computer. :)


FREE4AllFridays!


In honor of my extreme exhaustion this week, I decided that STARBUCKS was the trick! I'll be giving away a $10 Starbucks giftcard this week! (It's still hot enough for iced coffee right now, but cool enough temps for hot coffee are just around the corner, so you're golden no matter which you like.)

To enter:
*Leave me a comment saying your favorite coffee house item (food or drink).
*Follow my blog and leave me a comment saying you do.
*Blog about this giveaway and leave me a link in my comments.
*Find my blog on Facebook (PeachyKeen), hit the "like" button, then leave me a comment saying you did.

*Hop over to Mimi's (here) to see what she's up to, then leave me a comment saying you did.

That's FIVE separate entries (if you leave each one in a separate comment).

Good luck!

Love & Shipoopies,
Leslie
