Happy New Year! Happy Monday! Is it me, or did Christmas just fly by?
For those of you who were out and about and not blog reading over the past week, I have quite a few recipes and posts I am excited about.
Here are just a few:
Are you back at work this week? A little bummed that the holidays are over, it’s still winter, and everything sort of goes back to normal?
January is my least favorite month. I actually like something about every other month of the year except for January. It’s cold, we are coming off of a holiday high, and it just feels bleh.
Amping up my Napa Marathon training and eating more are two things I will be doing to break that monotony. More and more I realize I don’t eat nearly enough for someone so active, and some recent dizzy spells have been the result. I want to kick those in 2011 and make it the year of more energy!
Anyway, I was thinking over the weekend that it has been awhile since I have done a giveaway. To help keep the festive, holiday feeling alive, I am giving away a $50 gift card to the winner’s favorite restaurant. I was able to do this a few weeks ago with http://www.go2.com, and hearing what restaurants people would choose was a ton of fun.
So let’s get started!
1) Leave a comment, and tell me the restaurant you would choose if you won. If your restaurant doesn’t sell gift cards, I will send you a $50 Visa card toward dinner
2) Be willing to guest post about your meal if you win
3) Link back to this post on your blog or on Facebook
4) Optional – do one thing today in your own life to keep the holiday spirit alive and if you feel like it, leave a comment and let me know what it was. People around you will thank you! And it will be fun for all of us to brainstorm ways to make this the best January yet.
I have a busy day ahead today, a couple of meetings, a hill workout, and lots of writing and social media stuff to do. I am actually looking forward to really getting back into the swing of things. I guess that’s what happens when you allow yourself to take some time off.
Stay tuned for a review of Lolita Boston later today. . .
