1. This weekend is SAVOR. It’s by far my favorite beer event of the year. 64 breweries with two beers each. Plus we get to go to a pre-event educational salon. Friday night we are attending a beer tasting RFD with some of our favorite brewers. The problem? Despite my love of good beer and my frequent discussion of said beers, I’m a serious light weight. Drinking two beers is a lot for me. So, I’ll be working hard at moderation and only trying those beers I’ve never had or can’t get around here. I still imagine I’ll be sweating beer when I run on Sunday. ;o)
2. Today I wanted to get in 6 miles, but I didn’t get up in time. So, I hit the road for a very slow, hot, sweaty, disgusting… three miles. It was already 78 degrees and super sunny and humid when I went out. Despite not pushing myself at all, I was totally wiped by the end. My plan is to get in another three when Beer Geek gets home from work. I have a feeling a lot of doubles may be in my summer running plan.
3. I need some clothes for the events this weekend, so Shoo and I hit the store today. Shoo decided to “help” me pick out dresses. Apparently he thinks I’m a street walker – every dress he pulled out was either garishly bright or metallic and they were all cut down to my navel. Each time he pulled out a dress, he informed me that it was a princess dress. Not sure I’ll ever want him dating the kind of “princess” that would wear the dresses he picked. The best part? When he pulled out a black and white floral dress and declared “Look, mommy, a COW! princess dress!”
And our Final Winner! Lucky Winner #13!
Both boys insisted on picking this morning. Shoo went first and pulled a name. I looked at it and threw it back in the hat and mixed everything back up. Then Jones picked. I had planned on just going with Shoo’s choice (it’s not like the kids read my blog LOL). As it turned out, they both picked the same person.
Winner #13, chosen by both boys, is
AngieB is an awesome barefoot runner, who I hope to meet one of these days when I head to the midwest.
Fine print: Shoot me an email at mom2shoo at gmail.com and we’ll discuss your prize options. Congrats to all of my winners! I hope to mail things out next week. Stay tuned for more (much smaller) giveaways in the future.

SAVOR = Color me jealous.Enjoy!
I know what you mean about not getting up early enough. It is so hot super early! Ugh. I am still going to try again tomorrow.Congrats to Angie. That win was just meant to be!
I WISH I HAD KNOWN ABOUT SAVOR!! I just looked it up and apparently it sold out in 10 minutes! Next year I am THERE. Enjoy it!
Congrats Angie!Have fun at SAVOR!
Once p90x is over, I will be doing doubles all the time. Have fun at SAVOR!
Enjoy your weekend!! I love shopping, but never do well with dresses. My daughter came dress shoppiong with me once and kept trying to pick me out dresses from the juniors dept. They were waaaaay too short for me. 🙂
Enjoy SAVOR! Can't wait to hear about all the new beers you get to try 🙂
Well, what mother wouldn't want a cow princess dress? That made me laugh because I could totally see my little guy say something like that:)I am with you on the breaking up the runs for the summer. I have had a tough time with my last few runs because of the heat and the yuck. I feel the same say just beat after three little miles. Grrr! It is so frustrating, I feel like I am moving at a snails pace:) I guess this means I have to get my butt out of bed really early and suck it up:)Congrats to the Angie Bee! Have a good time at SAVOR:)
Savor the SAVOR! Congrats to all the lucky winners!
I LOVE shopping with my toddler. He always shares his opinions very loudly with the entire store. Its too funny. A couple of weeks ago I was shoe shopping. There was a lady next to me trying on shoes and he said, "Those shoes are ugly. Look at these (picking up a pair), they are CUTE." It was too funny.
It was seriously sticky today, wasn't it? It was the first time that the heat really got me this year. So funny about the dresses Shoo picked out; my daughter was picking out some seriously sparkly shoes for me today when we were at the mall–I guess it's a good thing we don't listen to them! Enjoy SAVOR.
Ha ha ha! A cow princess dress. Just love what comes out of the mouths of kids.
Congrats to all the winners! What, no costume for the winner picking today? Enjoy your weekend!
Wow, boys are so different from girls 🙂 My little lady doesn't think anything is a princess dress unless it looks like it came from a Disney movie.Have FUN this weekend. Sounds like a blast!
I just love your posts, your kiddos crack me up…you street walker, you! Have FUN at Savor! Enjoy!
Ah… SAVOR sounds awesome! I'll have to try to make it to that next year…I'm going to the Vintage Virginia Wine Festival in Bull Run. I'm NOT a wine-o… so this should be good for expanding my horizons. I like wine…but I've never even done a wine tasting! I've for sure tried more beers than wines.I feel like there aren't many people who pound heavy after heavy beer, so don't feel bad. 2 beers is about right for the kind meant to be enjoyed. But have fun pushing that limit ;)Your kids are so funny!
I am jealous and would love to be at that beer event! I have a baby shower and a baptism to attend instead. Oh well!
