Holy Cow!

Posted: February 8, 2011 at 12:48 pm

You know how I said yesterday ended up being a good day? Well, I left two little moments out that had this look of joyful surprise on my face…

First up, I got an exciting email from Roni (the head coordinator of the FitBloggin’ Conference). I have been chosen to volunteer at the conference as a live blogger! That basically means I will serve as a note taker during one of the conference sessions that weekend. Why is that exciting? Well, I’m thrilled to involve myself deeper in this conference and help out. PLUS it means I get a refund on the conference fee I paid. I will happily put that money to use in two other trips I have my eyes on for later this year. 😀

Then, I found out something even more fabulous. Remember when I wrote this post about two months ago? It served as my “try out” to have the chance to work with the fitness apparel company 4all by JoFit as one of their featured bloggers for 2011. Well, as my Facebook friends found out earlier today…



Out of all the entries they chose me to help represent them along with 9 other fabulous bloggers! What a fun opportunity! Some great bloggers on the list, so check it out.

I celebrated all of this by watching the new episode of Glee. A little sweet included. We had care meals brought to us on Sunday and Monday night, both with a dessert. I like to save them and have one portion after dinner. Last night was a tough decision…mini peanut butter pie or a German chocolate bar?

Yea I could have had both, but I didn’t need both to celebrate. Food doesn’t equate to the giddy feeling I already had going on inside. I know the desserts aren’t going anywhere and I can fit some into my balanced eating just fine. So, mini peanut butter pie for last night…

….and one German chocolate bar saved for tonight. I’ll catch you later!

Question of the Day – Which dessert would you have chosen?

Also, if interested you can find a response from PB&Co in the comments (or my summation at the bottom) of my last post.

  1. holy WOW, congrats, Tina! that’s so exciting!

    and. that german chocolate bar looks absolutely fantastic.

    and it would be in mah belly right now. 😉

  2. Congratulations! How exciting. And before I knew which dessert you picked I was saying (screaming in my head?) Peanut Butter Pie! Peanut Butter Pie! Excellent choice.

  3. Ahhhh you’re won of the live bloggers!!? So cool!! And awesome that you get a refund of your registration fee!!! Now since we both didn’t have to pay registration for FitBloggin’ guess we are both going to HLS? 😛

    Ooo and congrats on the Team4All but I already told you that earlier 😛

    • Tina says:

      Oh yes, HLS! That sounded like a cheerleader. Haha. But I will be going to that one. Thank goodness for blogging $!

  4. Congrats! Some great news yesterday.

    oh and I’d be all over the mini pb pie.

  5. Congratulations!! Well deserved.

  6. Congrats girl! That’s so exciting.

  7. Wow congrats Tina!! So exciting!

  8. Katie says:

    Congrats love on both things!!! I love the happy face pic!!!!!! xoxo

  9. Contests on both counts, Tina! Awesome news!

    I would have went with the German chocolate. One of my all time favorite combos is chocolate and coconut. So good!

  10. Yay! Congrats teammate! 🙂

    • Tina says:

      😀 And thanks for the email. I was all confused, but thankfully we know its official now with the email from 4all.

  11. wow, congrats! that is awesome!!!

    I totally would have picked the peanut butter pie, that looks awesome!

  12. Lauren says:

    Congrats! I would have chosen the German chocolate bar – I saw a German chocolate cupcake yesterday that I was drooling over, but I didn’t have money with me!

  13. Congrats Tina!

    And I would have picked the PB cake too 🙂

  14. heather says:

    Congrats girl I knew u would make it!. I was bummed I didn’t make it but I guess it just wasn’t meant to be!

  15. Congrats! Sounds like a good way to start your Tuesday! 🙂

  16. Congratulations! Saw the note on the PB&Co and still wouldn’t eat it in that condition!

    • Tina says:

      I’m not eating that jar. Oh no! It freaked me out to much. I just won’t let it keep me from having their pb again. Especially since they are sending me some free. 😉

  17. Liz says:

    Congrats! How exciting. And good choice on the PB pie… assuming there wasn’t any dark chocolate dreams in there 😉

  18. I would have probably chosen both… but if I had to pick jist one, it would have been the pie 🙂

    Congratulations on both pieces of great news!

  19. Congrats Tina! That’s great news 🙂

  20. Congrats, you really deserve it!

    I’d have chosen the choc bar I think….tough choice tho!

  21. Heather says:

    Congrats on all the good news!!! Can’t wait to see/meet you at Fitbloggin…. 🙂
    I would have chosen the pie, too. It’s hard for me to pass up anything peanut butter……

  22. Congratulations! I would have chosen the PB pie too. Mmmm! 🙂

  23. How exciting! Congratulations! And, sorry, I would’ve picked the German Chocolate bar.

  24. Rach says:

    Congratulations, girl! That’s so exciting!!!

  25. Congrats!
    I would have chosen the pb pie 🙂

  26. Congratulations on your awesome news!!!! Peanut butter pie would have won for sure!! 😀

  27. Stephanie says:

    Wow! I am so excited for you! I would have gone with the peanut butter pie…only because it looks BIGGER. 🙂 lol

  28. Leashieloo says:

    Aw, congrats!! And I would have definitely went with that PB pie!

  29. Congrats!!! That’s so exciting!

    I probably would have gone with the German Chocolate Brownie because I know if I would have left it around for a night – the hubby would have eaten it whereas he’d leave the pie alone and I could eat it the next night. Now how greedy is that?! I’m horrible!!! haha

    • Tina says:

      I should have done that. I realized after writing this post the husband took the chocolate bars with him to work. Although in all honesty, the pie would have been gone too. And we wonder where M gets her sweet tooth with us as parents? 😉

  30. Congratulations! That is such great news!

  31. How awesome! Congrats Tina! I would have chosen the brownie looking thing 🙂 I enjoy chocolate 🙂

  32. Congratulations!

    I also would have chosen the Peanut Butter Pie. Very nice.

  33. Mellissa says:

    When I do have dessert it is usually something chocolate 🙂

  34. Melodie says:

    This is awesome news! Congrats to YOU!!! Both of those treats look awesome 😉

  35. lindsay says:

    what a great day! COngrats!! I would have had a little of both. Its hard choosing one.

  36. Congratulations sweetie!!! I would have chosen the peanut butter pie!

  37. Stacy says:

    Congratulations on all of your great news! Very exciting! And I would have chosen the German chocolate bar…it’s hard for me to pass up chocolate. 🙂

  38. Congrat- how fun and exciting!!

    I still need to watch the new Glee, so thanks for not posting any spoilers 😉

  39. Congrats! Those are some great opportunities 🙂 I would have eaten the PB pie for sure!

  40. Becca says:

    Congrats tina!!! that’s all such fab news!!!

    … Um… you cant expect me to choose one or the other. I’m in prep, I want BOTH. 🙂

  41. YAYAYA..so exciting! It’s like I told you on FB this morning…I’m so happy and excited for you!! It is FAB news!!!

    I would have went with the peanut butter pie for dessert. im a sucker for PB

  42. Angela says:

  43. That is a great day, congratulations on getting chosen for not one but two cool things!

  44. Congrats!!!! There’s no one who deserves those two opportunities more than you sweet friend 🙂

  45. Congratulations! Sounds like you had an absolutely awesome day. Every day should see a smile like that. 🙂

  46. Holly says:

    Tina, that is GREAT news!!! Congratulations!!! Your hard work is paying off. 🙂

    Well, German Chocolate Cake might be the ONLY dessert I don’t care for….so definitely PB Pie, come to mama.

  47. Awesome! Congrats, congrats!!!! Yay! 😀

  48. Jolene says:
