Mingle Weekly Blog Hop!

For all of you who were legitimately concerned about me yesterday... don't you worry, I'm okay! Your e-mails/tweets/comments were so sweet! I was quite simply swamped yesterday building the Active for Life healthy living campaign for my office (daily question to follow...), so I apologize for missing Mingle Monday!! why don't I make it up to you this morning?! And then to top it off with extra sweetness, I will be post the recipe to the Guinness double chocolate ganache-filled cupcakes with Magnolia Bakery's vanilla buttercream. To. Die. For.

So, do you forgive me?


{ Time to Mingle! }


Pretty Pretty Please...

If you could find it in your big heart to pass the Mingle word along... I will love you forever and ever and ever... and ever.

In all seriousness, I truly appreciate each one of you who take an extra minute to go the extra mile for me. I cannot thank you and your sweet generosity enough!

{ Many thanks! }

5) Answer the weekly question...

In regards to my Active for Life program... we want to provide worthwhile prize incentives for outstanding participants! I'm thinking pedometer, sports watch, workout DVD, etc.... but we have a no giftcards policy! HELP!

** What healthy living prizes would you want to win? **


** MINGLE FAIR -- all blog & runs (not commenting) will be removed. **

** Open until Friday at noon! Please spread the word! **

Valentine's Day ideas tomorrow and more inspiration heading your way this week... stay tuned!!

Hope your week is off to a stellar start!!

PS - Are you on Twitter? Follow me on the go!! :)


  1. Hmmm healthy living prizes.. more info on what that is please?? :)

  2. Healthy living prizes! Let's see... coupons, gift cards, headbands that don't budge during runs, at home work out gear (bands, balls, etc.).

  3. Gift cards are great! Plus, I'm in the market for new workout clothes. The more regularly I run, the more necessary this all becomes!

  4. I visited Shane's blog and gosh is she cute or what?

  5. Stopped by Operation Beautiful and Simple Little Joys. I am just amazed by Shane's blog and her Operation Beautiful. Love love love what she's doing there!. Simple Little Joys shared a bunch of craft projects and I want to go make her Valentine wreath right now!!

    For a healthy living prize I like the workout DVD idea. Maybe a yoga video and a fun dance video. I just bought the Pussy Cat Dolls video, so fun! Also what about a cookbook with healthy recipes? Or a fun colored sports bra? Can't have too many of those!

  6. I stopped by Live with Intention first, and she just got into Pinterest! Welcome to the club, Jacque, now you will be DIY-ing it up!

    Katie at For Lauren and Lauren has been praying diligently to get pregnant, so pray for her y'all! More can't hurt, plus she and her husband have been wanting a baby for a while.

    I also stopped by The Forge and Sophie and her family just went to the zoo. SO CUTE!

    Your living healthy prizes sound good! Also: small weights, cook books, water bottles, etc. So fun!

  7. Healthy living prizes.....
    - sports wear could be cute
    - DVD workouts
    - water bottles with slogans to inspire
    - iPod or music armbands

  8. Like everyone I am addicted to Pinterest. Simple Little Joy has found some great craft ideas I am dying to try.

    I think a yoga mat would be a good prize. They come in so many colours and patterns that you could find a unique gift depending on the person who wins.

  9. What I think would be a healthy living prize, and something I think comes very handy when counting calories would be a nice full set of measuring cups and measuring spoons for dry and wet foods. Portion size is so important, and in order to keep up with it you've got to measure!

  10. Stopped by For Lauren and Lauren...started praying for Katie.
    Stopped by life of love and entered the myties giveaway!

    Some gift cards would be great motivation and some cute workout hair stuff or fun socks even!

  11. visited shane at whispering sweet nothings and loved her operation beautiful post, definitely something i'd love to take part in!

  12. oh and i already followed Sar at life of love, but adore her and wanted to say hii, haha :)

  13. Stopped by life of love and if it's not okay...
    Sar at life of love is always so positive and uplifiting!
    As for Active for Life prize ideas, it's kind of expensive, but the fitbit is awesome, especially for people who are new to getting active. Healthy cook books are fun too, or a subscription to something like Shape magazine.

  14. dvd work out or some workout clothes! YOGA MATS :)

  15. I dropped by Rachels at {simple.little.joys} and loved her DIY project. I also dropped by Shane's and loved her Operation Beauty Project. Stopped by Katie at Dear Lauren and Lauren and sent her a prayer and positive note.

  16. Visited Whipering Sweet Nothing, Reading Escapes, From lauren to lauren & Life of Love.. What an awesome blogs you guys have. I'm still learning and hope I can be a better writer :D
