Wine Wednesday and Personal Wine Cellar Giveaway


Well, it’s Wednesday. But more importantly, it’s WINE WEDNESDAY! Yes, I am doing it. Dedicating an entire post to talk about wine. But stay with me here, you might be able to reap the rewards of me being WINO COTTER. You all know I love wine. But let me tell you why. Wine to me is more than a drink. It’s science, it’s an art, it’s culture. And I love learning and … [Read more...]

Friday Food and Fitness Finds


Well it’s Friday and the Cotter’s have successfully made it through the week. You see, my husband has had a virus for 10 days and then pulled his back out right after that. Oh and he’s suppose to race Sunday. Ya, what a week! But we made it and he’s racing Sunday. Might not be a great race but we’re going for it! I mean, he is. I’ll be playing Sherpa! Anyway, to finish the … [Read more...]

Go with the Flow Friday


Well friends, it’s Friday. I really wasn't on planning on posting much this week. You see, we were supposed to be in the Bahamas for the UWC triathlon. Well…. hurricane Sandy had other plans and the triathlon has been postponed. Bummer! We won’t get to go but that’s okay. Sometimes you just gotta go with the flow, right? So instead of running around here...... I’m going to … [Read more...]

You get paired up … [Read more...]

Racing Update and Steak Therapy


I think I’ve started this blog post three times already. You see, I really had (have) no idea how to just blurt it out. I guess there’s no right way either, eh? The past few months have been HARD! Hard to watch I’d say. The hubs has been back and forth with knee problems, not like last year, but still lingering. We’ve seen several doctors, tried multiple solutions, and finally … [Read more...]

WIAW: Rebooting


Well friends, poor little laptop is still getting rebooted. Luckily the hubs is letting me borrow his. Although the space bar doesn’t work unless you push down it really hard. It sounds like I am angry at the computer when I type. Hmm, maybe I am. Nah, in fact, it’s all good. I’m thinking this is going to be my reboot week. Rebooting my own little system here. Rebooting … [Read more...]

WIAW- My Instagram Theory


It’s been a while. I mean a REALLY good while since I’ve done a WIAW post. I always love Jen’s WIAW’s. She’s got such a great thing going on and it’s fun to see new recipe ideas, products, etc. But me? Ya, I have not been taking many pictures. I mean legit pictures. In fact, I rarely carry my camera anymore. I blame instagram. Or rather, I am saved by instagram. It does all … [Read more...]
