So, my little blog turned one year old yesterday.  If you missed out on yesterday’s song…well…I’ll just repost it.


(And THAT’s why you should have kids!)

To celebrate her birthday (yes, LL is a girl), I thought I should THANK my readers for making this blog so successful in it’s first year.  Every day this week, LL will host a giveaway from some of my all-time favorite companies.  Companies that have played a HUGE part in getting this blog on it’s feet.

I’m calling it….


Add a “yeehaw”, Kei$ha and some tinsel and you’ve made it to my party.

This week really isn’t a celebration about me – I want the focus to be on YOU!  It is YOU who come back daily and put up with my sillyness.  It’s YOU who leave sweet comments on those posts that are hard to write.  It’s YOU guys that email me behind the scenes to ask how my day is going.  I’m SO VERY THANKFUL!  Grateful for your time and friendship. 

That being said, today I AM going to toot my own horn just a wee bit.  Because I’m proud of my work and what this “naptime blog” has evolved into.  I say as humbly as possible – I put a lot of hard work into this blog and it’s paying off! 

Some Accomplishments:

Over the last six months, the Lindsay’s List readership has grown by 203%.

Twitter followers have grown to 1,069.  Facebook, to 401.

Became a Fitfluential Ambassador.

Hosted a whopping 23 giveaways!

Wrote 11 Guest Posts and hosted several on the site!

Planned and successfully pulled off Blend 2012!

Hired by Mom 365 to do weekly freelance work.

New doors are opening up every day. Everywhere I look, I see God’s hand in this venture.  I can’t wait to see where He takes it!

DAY 1 GIVEAWAY – fitmixer!!

If you follow my Instagram, Twitter or Facebook sites, you’ll know how much I love fitmixer.  I had the opportunity to meet the people behind fitmixer at the 2012 Blend Retreat (and I’m sure I’ll see them again at Blend2013!).  The whole team was just full of life and really stood behind their products. 


fitmixer specializes in amino acids, protein powder and has an online Bootcamp (next one starts in September!).  I personally endorse all of their products and am LOVING the Bootcamp, which is particularly handy because all of the workouts can be done AT HOME and in MINIMAL time!  For a mom, this is such a nice thing to have at my fingertips!

fitmixer wanted to celebrate LL’s birthday too!  So they’re giving away TWO prizes today!


Grand Prize:  TWO canisters of fitmixer amino acids + shaker bottle

Runner-Up:  ONE canister of fitmixer amino acids + shaker bottle

a Rafflecopter giveaway

The winner’s will be announced on Friday!  Best of luck friends!

Come back every day this week as the celebration continues!

**Get your Tuesday Trainer submissions in by tonight at 8pm!**

  2. I actual don’t have a pinterest, but I’ve seen other people’s and the workouts pinned are usually so inspiring!

  3. Congrats on the blog birthday! That’s a huge accomplishment and definitely something to be super proud of you. As a newer reader, I have been loving on having some past material to catch up on.
