I am so very excited to share with you lovely friends the news of me obtaining my running goal in today's race. If you follow me on twitter or facebook, I'm sure you have seen, maybe even a little too much, my persistent fundraising efforts for my Mo Run. Well while I didn't necessarily meet my fundraising goal, I did manage to run each mile under 10 minutes, an accomplishment that I am so proud of and sometimes in such great disbelief as to how far Ive come with running! If you knew me back in high school, you would know that it was my most hated event in Physical Education classes... one avoided with endless excuses and complaints! And now with countless races, three half marathons, and tons of money collected for various charities, I can't help but smile and think "who would've thought?" I'll fill you all in with a complete recap of the race and all the amazingly hilarious pictures in a post tomorrow, but for now, enjoy the lovely links of things that have caught my fancy (a lot are food related!) this week... Yay me!!!  

It's still not too late to donate to prostate cancer... give as much or as little as you please here...

And the countdown until xmas begins... and what better way than with this creative advent calendar...

Just loving this succulent centerpiece idea for a xmas gathering... rustic and beautiful...

Swooning over The Union Street messenger bag... designed to hold your camera and laptop...

The perfect treat for your guests at any party this winter... red hot apple cider... in an apple...

Have you checked out the IHOD Holiday Gift Guide 2011 yet... some amazing hand made finds!!!

This week's favorite little thing of mine is a tie between this, this, and this... just couldn't choose...

What an amazing all things shiny roundup over at Oh Happy Day... it just screams festive!!!

Sweet potato, good... marshmallows, good... biscuits, good... now combine all three, yep it's true!!!

And last but certainly not least, some very good marriage advice, parts1 & parts 2 for all to enjoy...

***Today I am thankful that I was able to push myself further and meet a personal running goal of 3.1 miles in under 30 minutes... all while raising awareness, funds, and sporting a ginger mustache for prostate cancer via Mo Run!!!***
