All That to Say: Weekend Giveaway! Stella and Dot

I met Lauren when I was training for my marathon back in 2011.  (I seriously cannot believe it has been a year since I ran my marathon!)  Anyway, Lauren was one of the coaches with the Marathon Makeover; a coach I simultaneously loved and feared.

You see, Lauren is the kind of running coach that doesn't just run alongside you.  She COACHES you.  She stretches you.  She challenges you to do more than you ever imagined you'd be able to (aka tortures you).  Whenever I would see her bouncing my way, I would feel two things simultaneously;  ticked that she wasn't even sweating (though I was dying); and fearful of what she was going to make me accomplish!

But I grew to love the times that Lauren would run with our group (sort of).  She's the kind of coach you want to have in your life, stretching you, challenging you, making you better.

Well, recently Lauren became a stylist for a really great company called Stella and Dot.  If you've never heard of them it's because you must live under a rock . . . just kidding, calm down.  Stella and Dot is a jewelry company (though they sell a lot more than jewelry).  Anyway you can read about them if you want to know more by clicking the link above.  And to support Lauren, I told her I'd host a virtual trunk show right here on my blog!

So, as is the case every weekend, I am giving away (as in free) something that goes with this story.  I toyed with the idea of giving away my marathon medal, but really doubted ANYONE would want that, so instead I decided to give away a piece of Stella and Dot jewelry. 

You can click this link, shop around a bit, order something if you'd like (and you will like, so be warned) and then leave a comment on this blog as your official entry.  If you haven't already done so, you'll need to follow my blog as well. (yes, it's shameless . . .)

Oh, and the prize . . . well the winner gets to choose their OWN prize!  WHAT?!!!  Yep, you get to pick your own prize if you are the winner!  Simply go back to the Stella and Dot link, click  "gifts,"  and look in the gifts under $50.  Then choose your gift! 

All that to say, Lauren, thank you for all you have done for so many of us who try to call ourselves runners.  And here's to smashing success at your new business!

FROM LAUREN!!!!! (She left it in the comments, but I added it up here in case you guys don't read the comments!
