POTM and Favorite Things Give-a-way

I am pulling myself out of the sadness that is NO CARDS BASEBALL until April so I signed up for "Pile On The Miles (POTM)" in November. If you don't read Monica's blog Run.Eat.Repeat - which I am SURE you do - you are missing out. She is hilarious, adorable, and a true running inspiration - plus she is friends with SkinnyRunner who I blogstalk a million times a day. Each year in November she hosts POTM. This is the 1st year I joined. Monica is encouraging people to pile on the miles instead of the pounds this holiday season - so this is a fun way to do it. If you are interested in reading about it or want to join check it out HERE - if you do join - let me know. I will be posting about my weekly runs each Monday morning for the previous week - we can chit chat and motivate each other. Come on and JOIN ME. Things are so much better in numbers;)

Now, let the good times roll. I am going to be giving away a few of my favorite things to THANK YOU ALL - HUZZAH!!! I have reached 100 followers and cannot be MORE excited. Thank you for taking the time to read about me, my family, my life saga, my drama, and everything else I rant about. Thank you - Thank you - Thank you.

 So what will be in the box, you might ask?

1. Aveeno Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer with SPF 
I use this religiously morning and night and have been for years. This stuff is AWESOME!
2. Maybelline The Falsies - Volume Express Mascara
Best Frugal Find EVER. I am obsessed with this mascara.
3. Essie Nail Polish - Gray color (Chinchilly)
My go to color - love grays for fall.
4. Tresemme Hair Spray - Extra Hold
The BEST Cheap Hair Spray - almost as good as Aqua Net. LOL
5. Monster Bag of Swedish Fish
It wouldn't be complete without some Swedish Fish
Well there you have it people - some of my FAVORITE things. If you like what you see and want to sign up to win this "Box of Mel", feel free to do so below. You can enter to win up until Friday, October 26th at midnight. I will announce the winner on Monday. All I ask is that you rub your tummy and pat yourself on the head, say "Make-a-lakea hi - make-a-Chineyo" (you know what series that phrase is from?), click your heels together 3 times then pop/lock/drop and do the tootsie roll. KIDDING... Just hook it up and be a follower over "hur" on the right. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

  17. You are so fun Mel! I love the chinchilly color of Essie Nail polish, I wear it constantly, my husband makes fun of my purply-grey nails, lol :) Hubby and I were super upset the Cards lost, but because of my 3 year old son's obsession with baseball, we'll watch the rest of the world series (And probably DVR a game so that he can watch it all winter long)....

  18. Love these kind of giveaways! So fun!
