YOUR fall favorites… & stimulatin’ like a BOSS

Hello hello again from the bus! Haha I like this blogging-whilst-commuting thing. Makes the trip go so much faster! Sorry though – this post probably wont be posted until I get home tonight!

Well, a winner has been chosen, and tomorrow a box full of goodies will be embarking on its journey to Pennsylvania! Hope you enjoy it Susan!!

If I had been picking winners based on how good their photos looked… man that would have been hard! I didn’t get as many entries as I had hoped – only 8 people submitted photos, but a lot of you hopped on the multiple entry thing and many of you did all four options to enter! I really appreciate it guys!! It’s not like I get sent stuff from companies to give away, so I can’t promise that I will do many of these, but my first giveaway was definitely fun!

Here are some of the good lookin yummies you lovely ladies sent me (wait.. I didn’t have any male entrants did I? I don’t think so…)

Looks like yall are lovin the fall flavors as much as I am!


As I mentioned yesterday – the bone growth stimulator was delivered! Apparently they’re a lot more commonly used than I thought! I asked the rep who brought it out to my house and set me up how many of these she did a month – she said she does at least one every day! Based on the reactions I’ve gotten when I told people I was using a bone growth stimulator… I would think that they’re like a rarity. Apparently not! Here is my gift from the orthopedic Santa:



And here is my trying to demonstrate how the BGS will work from a very awkward angle:


Hahah fail! My roomie offered to take a photo of me and my new BFF later in the evening. Clearly the novelty hadn’t worn off yet:


Excuse the hot mess of hair.. I just got home from spin.. put on the PJs.. and hunkered down with Grey’s! (Close to definition of a perfect night.) I am supposed to use the stim for 30 minutes one time every day. And no trying to cheat or extra stimulate them bones either – it will ONLY work once a day. Clever thinking Mr. Manufacturer! I am excited that this finally came through, and although its pretty much a crap-shoot (that is the phrase.. right?) if it’ll actually WORK or not, I’m game to try.

Haha I just realized almost no one will be making this whole BOSS connection. Toooo much to explain for now. Sorry!

[Location change! Now home with my stim chillin on the hip and a bag of popcorn]

WELL I think I can wrap this post here. It went from a 57° partly sunny morning to a coldddd 36° rainy night. Unfortunately, I dressed for school during that 58° temp, so when I finished practice in the pool and went to catch the bus with wet hair, a long sleeve shirt, and a light running jacket, I turned into this:

Only I can guarantee you this little toots had on way more layers than I did, and I didn’t look nearly as cute with my “cold face” on. Anyways, sob story over – I’m warm now. Enough complaining!

Man I hope this bone growth stimulator is working. When I sit for half an hour at any other time, it seems like no biggie. But when I’m doing it off my own schedule, it feels like a chore! Hhaha more complaining. I think I should go now.


p.s. you guys should help me come up with a nickname for this bad boy. Bone Growth Stimulator is a mouthful! And “the Stim” just sounds dirty… help!

  1. I love that someone submitted an apple as a fall favorite…so true!!

    I’ll be brainstorming a name for the Stim…

  2. Your making me hungry!!

    For your question on the wheat bran you could substitute any type of flour- whole wheat, white, soy, pretty much anything! Wheatbran is basically just like a really fiber-filled flour 🙂

  3. I’m so glad I’m the only one that took a picture of myself:(
    That bone thing looks fun, how often do you have to do that?

    • LOL no worries – that picture was so cute!

      I do “the stim” 30 minutes a day, every day, until the doctor says stop. the machine “dies” after 9 months.. so I guess that’s the upper limit.

  4. Is that hot chocolate I see? I was craaaaaving hot chocolate last night!
    That little kiddie picture is so ridic. Love it!
    Good luck with the bone growth stimulator – really hoping it works out for you!

  5. So….um….can you feel it????? Lmao. And I vote to name it “Barnaby” Not sure why. Just came to mind. And I soooo meant to enter your giveaway….but this whole teaching gig….takes up WAY too much time. I’m trying to get a bit of my blogging life back though!!!!!
