Winner Winner Chia Seed Dinner!

Happy Sunday!  I've had a fabulous weekend and now that the USA vs. Canada hockey game is babysitting my husband for a bit, I'll do a little recap of the weekend.  I'm also here to announce the chia giveaway winner!

Weekend Highlights
Let's get started!  On Friday night I went out with some friends after school to get some drinkies.  I wasn't in a drink mood but it was lots of fun to see all my friends!
Gosh my friends are beauteous!  And my do I need to get my roots done!
Anyhoo, I also baked some mini cupcakes to have as appetizers because appetizers=sugar in my book!
We continued the celebration with extra foamy lattes and pancakes. 
We then immediately went to the movies to see Shutter Island (loved it!) and I got my ice cream cone!  We also stopped by my parents' house to chill with them and have some tea and dessert.  I also got a burger on Saturday night:
Veggie and Vegan friends cover your eyes and ears!  This is an ostrich burger with tomatoes, lettuce, salsa, cholula, and pickles on a toasted no butter bun.  Ostrich meat is a really good source of B12, lean protein, and low cholesterol as compared to beef and chicken.  My hot date had a buffalo burger :)  Fuddrucker's has some unique choices so we went with them!

Other weekend highlights included roses from my loving hubby and countless Facebook and email birthday wishes!
Please tell me you've seen a cuter birthday card!  It made my heart swell 1,000 times.  I LOVE this kid!

I'm so lucky to have such amazing friends and family and 26 is looking pretty good already!  I will have to practice my new age when I enter it into the treadmill soon!

Giveaway Winner: 
Please email me with your info- including address so I can get you your chia seeds!

I'm going to end this post with a few highlights from my Chia Seeds Giveaway Request.  I asked you for some favorite 90s songs to count as an entry and ya'll did NOT disappoint.  Each one made me giggle and I have added them to my awesomely bad list of music!  I think this could make one heck of a dysfunctional workout playlist.  Anyone with me?

  • Spice Girls- apparently anything goes
  • Tearin' Up My Heart and more *NSync
  • EMF Unbelievable
  • Ace of Base- my hubby agrees
  • Bone Thugs- Crossroads
  • Smells Like Teen Spirit
  • Black Hole Sun
  • Depeche Mode
  • TLC- they are right up there with Spice Girls
  • New Kids On The Block
  • You Say- Lisa Loeb
  • Genie In a Bottle
  • "Baby Got Back"- it was on my 'must play list' at our wedding
  • Mmmbop
  • Backstreet Boys
  • Faith Hill
Thank you all for playing along with me and for all the blog love!  I'm a very lucky girl and your comments and support adds to that even more!
Have a great day!
