A giveaway, because I'm happy!

Well, the weekend was fantastic here!  Hubby was home for the entire time, and we finally got to join our local YMCA.  We were both members of smaller gyms previously, I was at one here and he was at one in GA.  But now that we know he'll be back for good, we're able to get the membership that we REALLY wanted!  And the kids are already more than grateful.  The local Y's here are different from any I've ever seen, with water parks and smoothie bars.  And we can use any in the city, which means he can work out at lunch down the road from him and the kids and I can go to the one in our neighborhood.  I had an awesomely sweaty long run yesterday, and then we spent all day yesterday at the water park, with Hubby getting in a workout while we were there.  The kids were over the moon, and we were all nice and tuckered out.  Total score!

And since I'm so happy having a new gym and an in-town hubby, I'm doing a giveaway!  I love to sew when the urge strikes, and I particularly love to make things that are similar to stuff I can buy from the store.  After purchasing a few headbands recently I realized that I could totally make them myself.  So here's what I came up with:

I made four of each fabric--two for me and six to give away!  I'm pretty darned happy with the results and am actually considering selling them in the future.  As for the giveaway, here's what it consists of:


Three lucky people will get two headbands and a tube of Tri Berry Nuun!!!!  Because it's my favorite flavor and this is a "Taste of Trin" sorta thing.  Well, except that sounds kinda gross.  But the Nuun and headbands are extremely ungross, I promise! 


I've already worn them both running, and they've passed my test with flying colors.  The black polka dot held steady through a treadmill 10k on Friday, and the white flowery headband (a slight bit thicker) was a rockstar through a verrrrrry humid 10-miler yesterday.  Sweat level disgusting, and it didn't budge!  And of course, I drank my Tri Berry Nuun the whole way.  As always.





 I will ask that whomever wins please give me their honest feedback about how the headbands feel/fit/hold up, etc.  I'm a big girl, I can handle it!









So there ya go, three of you will get one of these sets!  Here are the rules:

  10. I'm now a fan/following/liked you on facebook and I plan to read your blog. I'm not sure what I'd do with a headband if I won......

    The YMCAs in Louisville are very much lime what you described, one membership gets you 10 different gyms/pools. Pretty cool.

    1. I use a poly/nylon blend. All that really matters is that it has good stretch. :)
