Holy cow, I'm back!

So, let's just call that a L O N G hiatus. I know, totally lame and NOT motivating at all. Fortunately, I have the best excuse I could think of (and it's actually true!). 

I'm PREGO! That's right, folks, there's a bun in the oven. Right now I am about 6 months along and doing just fine. But believe me, it was a rough road I traveled to get here. Uncharacteristic of my first pregnancy, this pregnancy left me bed-ridden and crying for aid (or a bowl of Cheerios since that was about the only thing I could stomach for a good 10 weeks). I was even hospitalized once after an extremely difficult encounter with the stomach bug. Needless to say, the going got tough but the tough got going -  ie. I'm still here. Just to prove it, here's photographic evidence:

So now that I'm FINALLY back to what feels much like myself, I'm ready to get this baby rollin'! (Not the literal baby, the blog baby, that is). 

As an incentive to get people to actually read what I'm writing, to get ME to make frequent updates and just to be cool like all the other bloggers out there, I'm going to have a drawing to win a prize. The prize will be something beautiful - ie. a very cheap running accessory (I already know what it is and I use it all the time). 

Here are the rules to enter this awesome drawing: 

1. You MUST follow my blog. (see that little box on the sidebar that says, Follow? Well, follow.)

2. You MUST make a comment on this post. I love comments. They make me happy. So go ahead, make me happy. 

Then once I have all the comments and followers in, I will randomly draw a name and send them a cheap running accessory! I know you're excited. 

Good luck! 

(By the way, deadline is Thursday, April 30th at 9:00 p.m. EST)
