goodness and giveaway

by lindsay cotter on June 14, 2012

GOODNESS. I’ve been saying that word a lot lately. Like, “whoa, that’s some goodness.” Or “goodness gracious I am loving that!” Goodness. Yes. It is a GOOD WORD! I like the word so much I decided to search it in Pinterest. Oh man, lot’s of goodness on that goodness search! You gotta try it! My favorite pin that I saw when searching GOODNESS.

How good is that?

GOODNESS

It’s my grown up protein shake.

So Delicious Mint Chocolate Chip coconut ice cream, Vanilla protein, frozen banana, almond milk, and……….. BAILEY’s Irish Cream.

GOODNESS

It’s a nap in the middle of the afternoon on a hot summer day.

GOODNESS

It’s receiving a thank you note from an amazing group of ladies.

GOODNESS

It’s laughing so hard when your husband gives you this coaster.

It’s when Gods plans are more important than your own.

My goodness lately has been running again after months of battling shin splints, IT band pain, and a myriad of other injuries. I can’t ask for a much better goodness than that :)

Reply

LCCotter June 14, 2012 at 3:53 pm

oh thats wonderful goodness! keep healing and running!

Reply

Christina June 14, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Oh an just followed them on twitter (@graceless_love) such an awesome company!

Reply

Andreas June 14, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Oh my goodness! That’s one of my favorites too.

Anyway, just a quick note to say thank you for the thorough review. As for the small wrists, I’ve found our Organic Cotton Banjees fit smaller wrists better. Check them out at: http://sprigs.com/banjees/organic-cotton-banjees/

LCCotter June 14, 2012 at 3:53 pm

oh good to know! i love the material. So comfy!

1. Definitely liked their FB page!
2. I like the Black and Hot Pink Banjees band and I LOVE the black and hot pink or the pink paisley Big Banjees band! LOVE the idea of my phone fitting in them with everything else and not needing to hunt down another armband like I needed for my MP3 player.
3. I do follow them on Twitter. My name there is @SinnerEllaDeVil
4. My goodness? Despite my first broken bone at 32, It’s continuing to workout with 1 good leg and keeping off my achieved 100 lb weight loss and getting in better shape to shorten my rehab time. It’s getting back on my skates and being in my first Roller Derby Bout.
Other goodness: It’s summer and despite same broken leg, It’s playing and laughing with my kids as much as time allows before we all have to go back to school.

Plus my own babies, my twerps, they are so cute and make me laugh all day long.. I kept my older son out of school today because I miss him when he’s gone and they don’t do anything this last week anyway… that boy has some serious goodness written all over him.

I’ve got a whole bunch of goodness brewing right now, that’s for sure. Most recently my brother & I planning our trip to Europe!

The wrist wallet looks like a great thing to wear in the summer – I feel like I always carry more things with me on runs/walks when the weather is warmer (i.e. I need “gosh I’m thirsty” pit-stop cash!). I really like the paisley reversible one, although I guess the black-on-black would be a bit more subtle. ;)

That’s my goodness. :D
