I woke up at 4:00 am this morning and almost had a heart attack. Which, of course, would have meant no RIR post (you like that, I'm all cool and stuff with abbreviations) since I don't pre-plan this one. It's hard when I bookmark so many things and need to narrow it down. Oh, but why did I almost have a heart attack? Because my tablet said 4:00 am Saturday and I thought I forgot to go pick up the big girls from my daughter Ryan's house. Ummmm....yes. I'm supposed to do that at 4:00 pm. I haven't broke the news to the cat yet. Please don't call Jeffrey and tell him.
Some important admin stuff...the winners to the two Purex Crystals for Baby Coupons ....
I love being able to do giveaways. Just not every day like I thought I could do last year. What was I thinking?
I can read the stuff about Google+ million times but I'm still not quite getting it. I'm really trying to be more active on there but am not real successful yet. However, I do know that being active on Google+ is now totally tied to Google searches so if you want to see your name on the top of the searches you better be playing Google+. Anyway, Melissa over at Serendipity and Spice tries to convince me further to join in on Google+. All I can say is keep the posts coming and maybe I'll figure it out sometime soon.

Jenn over at Peas and Crayons is kind of my hero. She just lets it go. She's so okay with spending time away from her blog without any apologies. So while this is a WIAW post I just have to point out that she has such great posts that she can be gone for weeks at a time and her traffic does not slow down (I know because I get Pinalerts for her). Which just goes to show you why the post on The Ten Commandments of Blogging that I read this week isn't entirely true (and I break tons of those rules myself).
Stacia Carlton wrote a guest post over at The Lighter Side about working out with her trainer. She discusses how she may ... or may not....work out while he's on vacation. Do you know what I got from this article, besides a good laugh? Um, how does her trainer make so much money he can go on exotic vacations. No, really, tell me. So here's my shameless plug, if you want a personal trainer please shoot me an email. :) I need a vacation people.
Marathon Mom did a great post this week o the good and bad of treadmill running. Anyone who looks at my Daily Mile posts (or reads the blog for that matter) knows I'm a treadmill runner. Unless it's 70 or warmer, I doubt I'm going outside. She does a great job of showcasing the pros and cons and made me feel that while it's okay for me to do the treadmill, I really should go outside and venture the great outdoors some.
Kristiina over at Typical House Cat showed me how to make my own DIY Lip Scrub. And I have all the stuff in my house! Score! Free is my favorite number. :) Plus she has the cutest little pic to go along with it. Photo envy.

Paula at Call Me PMc has got me thinking about Valentine's day. Should I do a nice dinner? Should I not? She has tons of great ideas and recipes to share. I'm thinking I will do something but it will be over next weekend as I just can't do that kind of cooking during the week

Well, that's all I've got for now (although I book marked a ton of other posts). I'm going to eat some breakfast and get my weekend started. Lots of blog writing to do and roller skating with the girls tomorrow.
Do you have a favorite(s) post this week? What are your weekend plans?
