CSN giveaway and update

Have you checked out CSN stores yet? It is similar to Amazon with a numerous amount of products and over 200 stores. They have items such as dutch ovens, waffle makers, the one and only vitamix and much, much more.  

Would you like the opportunity to shop there with $60 in pocket?  CSN stores has offered a $60 gift card to one lucky reader to purchase goods of their choice!  To enter the giveaway, just tell me in a comment what you would purchase with the $60 after you have checked out the site. 


Winner will be selected at random - last day to enter will be September 23rd.


This week has been somewhat tough - Kara has been crying often and I'm not sure what is wrong. We go to the doctor tomorrow to see. I'm very exhausted and haven't been able to keep up with everything. Today I took the day off - normally a running day, but I'm feeling tired and decided it would be a good rest day. I have the half marathon on Sunday, and my legs could use the rest!  Little Kara turned 2 months yesterday.  I'm excited for Nick to come and cheer me on this weekend, it will be the first time he might actually be able to cheer for me and know what is going on :)

  1. I just spent 20 minutes on CSN's site. Goodness I need to learn not to get so distracted! I'm not sure what I'd buy, but from the looks of things it wouldn't be too hard to find something great.

  5. Oh, what a site! I've been wanting a weathershield for my BOB. Can't remember where I found your blog, but I enjoy reading your posts. Hope things improve with Kara's crying. Hopefully in another month, once you hit that magic 12 week mark, things will calm down. Our baby girl, Sam, was never a good sleeper (she still is up 1 or 2 times a night at 11 months!), and I remember many a night early on when she was crying and I was crying and/or my husband was crying from exhaustion and not knowing what to do next. But you get through it, as you know. And look, you're already getting smiles from her, so you're getting there!
    Good luck with your half marathon. I'm amazed how much running you've been doing in these first few months. WOW! You should be proud.

  6. I would buy replacement flatware for my spoons and forks that have mysteriously disappeared over the years...very cool that CSN carries my pattern!

    Sorry about fussy Kara - I hope you and the doc figure out what the issue is. She sure is a cutie, though!

    I really, really, really could use the coupon to buy a vitamix! It will make the blow of the price tag a bit easier to swollow!
