Wii, Workouts and Winning

Many of my close friends have heard me refer to 2011 as 20II. Yes, those are I's for ME. I made a promise to myself to live life to the fullest this year and do it for me and no one else. I am spending more time with my friends, trying new things and, more importantly, not letting anyone else get me down. So how is this plan working out? One word - GREAT!

First, I completed a marathon. Yes, a marathon - 26.2 miles. It was an amazing feeling to cross the finish line. And I did it with my best friend, which was even better.

I created a blog, 26.2 Miles of Magic, to document my marathon journey, which then lead me to create this blog to continue logging my adventures. Blogging has been a great experience for me. I can vent and share my experiences, but it has also led me to discover some other great blogs. This brings me to my next little "triumph" of 20II - winning.

Following blogs has gotten me some pretty cool stuff this year. I won a cool docking station and case for my phone on Good and Evo

And just last night, an amazingly awesome prize arrived from FitSugar - a Wii gaming console and the new EA Sports Active 2 fitness/workout game. I can't wait to get some friends together for Wii bowling or maybe Wii Minute To Win It or Wii Glee Karaoke. It will be so much fun!

I can't thank Good and Evo and Fit Sugar enough for my fabulous gifts. It has made the start to this year pretty spectacular. I am so happy and blessed. And it makes me look forward to all the other great opportunities life and 20II has to offer. Hopefully, the more I get into this blogging thing, the more I will be able to offer my readers, like a giveaway or two.

Oh, so how did I celebrate the Wii arrival? With a cake, of course. Coconut cake, vanilla buttercream and toasted coconut = a winning combination. YUM!

Thanks for reading everyone! More to come soon... including some yummy Gasparilla inspired cupcakes.
