My first Giveaway!!!! A Poster Print from UPrinting

I'm excited to host my very first giveaway!  I was contacted by UPrinting earlier this month and they are sponsoring my blog and have asked me to host this giveaway.  

Who wouldn't like a free 18x24 Poster Print to hang on your wall?  I'd probably put a family picture in, but it might be something just of my boys...then again we're heading to Hawaii soon, so maybe we'll get an amazing scenery shot.  There are so many options to choose from.  And with Father's Day coming up this giveaway has perfect timing.  

I haven't personally tried their Poster Printing or Canvas Printing but my mother-in-law has a fabulous canvas print of our last big family group picture on her wall and I'd love to have something similar in my home.  

Check out the different options available at and you'll be amazed at how reasonable the prices are and I'm sure you'll want one of your own.  And what better way to get one on your own than to win one here!

Here's how to enter.  Leave a comment on this post describing the photo you would use to print your prize if you won.  Those of you who have a blog, post about this giveaway with a link back to my blog and you can get a second entry (leave a second comment letting me know you did it.)  This giveaway is only open to US or Canadian resident and will run from this Friday until next Friday.  I will use to choose the winner on Friday, June 5, 2009 at noon and will announce the winner that evening.  I will e-mail the winner later that day.  

Good luck everyone!

Fitness Friday Post

I started this week with big aspirations and a goal to work out at least 3 times for 30 min each.  But this first trimester isn't quite done yet, and mornings were really quite difficult for me.  I only got one session done, but at least I did that.  Monday I worked out in my pajamas, since my workout clothes don't fit.  My pants were a little too long as I did the step aerobics and I really should have worn a sports bra for the run, but I did get first place on the Basic Run - Short with 205%!  I haven't moved on to the Long or Island Lap because I am still so winded so easily.  I did my 30 min and moved on with my day.

I'm super proud of my husband, I think he worked out every single day, and did at least 30 min each time.  I need to take a page out of his book and do a little better.  Oh well, there's always next week!  Wish me luck (no more morning sickness and a little more energy.)
