Party GIVEAWAY

We've been enjoying our first week of summer break.
Mai found a fat app to play with on my iPhone...

Jack has us all taking some strategic Risks...

Baby Katelyn finally arrived at her REAL due date, weighs 5.3 pounds and got to go home after 90 days in the hospital!!!




The team had our Send Off Party last night and the little kids had fun swimming while the big kids had fun stuffing ourselves with food and drink...

...and the viewing of one of our teammates living up to his promise that if he reached his fundraising goal, he would completely shave his hair and beard at the end of the season...

Coach bottled some of our blood, sweat, and tears from the season and we each received one of these...

...which brings us to my giveaway today. Recently Zaca sent me some of their recovery patches to try out. They are easy to use, just peel and stick a small 1" patch on your skin before going out and then let the good times roll. Both times I've used the patches, I have woken up earlier than I would like, but without feeling too very lousy. The patches are infused with 11 different organic ingredients to help you "enjoy feel-great mornings, clear-headedness and bright eyes" and the nice people at Zaca want to give one of you the opportunity to try out the patches, too. I'll pick the winner on Sunday! It's as easy as this:
Three ways to enter.
1. Be or become a follower of this blog and leave me a comment.
2. Tell me what your current method of hangover prevention entails.
3. Tweet about this giveaway and let me know.

Now I'm all bright eyed and bushy tailed and I'm heading out to use my pass to the Nike Employee Store. First, I need to figure out what NOT to wear, as I received an e-mail that emphatically states I am not allowed to wear any competitors clothing in the store...

Follower! No hangover remedies, I don't get them, I'm just more tired the next day. However, I do make sure to match each drink with a glass of water, so that might be the trick.

Tri-Living...Together said...

Hangover remedies?? LOL.. I don't drink more than one glass. I know.. lame!

I do the same drink/water plan as Kovas, but since I'm unable to drink slowly, I end up drinking an awful lot of fluids. I drink the biggest glass of water I can manage before going to bed, take 2 ibuprofen, and hope for the best in the morning.

I'm a follower! Nothing works for me so I just try to chug a lot of water right before I go to sleep.

Welcome home baby girl!

I always go for a pre-emptive strike when having wine by drinking some gatorade before bed. Seems to do the trick to some extent!

Abby @ Have Dental Floss, Will Travel said...

Wow, what a great reminder from your coach of how hard you've worked to get here. I love it.

I'm a follower, and as for hangovers, it's (really) rare that I drink enough to worry about them, but in general, I try to drink a giant glass of water before going to bed and another right when I wake up. Seems to help!

Big Daddy Diesel said...

When I was younger, I use to play Risk for hours, days on end with other friends, thanks for the drive down memory lane

Laurie said...

Congratulations to baby Katelyn and her parents! She's adorable!
I am a follower -- as for hangovers I try to not get them to begin with by not drinking too much. But, otherwise, I chug some Nuun and a few Advil before bed and repeat as soon as my eyes open. It works, uh, not like a charm but it does seem to help.

Nikki Kendall said...

Yes I follow! Best.Giveaway.Ever!

Nikki Kendall said...

My old go to remedy was a Burger King Double Cheese Burger. I can't eat them now......hmmmmmmmm....

Mike said...

I'm a follower. Love the bottled sweat text.

Molly said...

this giveaway is so funny, I love it. Follower!

Molly said...

I guzzle water after sucking down the alcohol, then drink more during the night when I get up to pee. Then a big bottle of nuun, along with a slice of toast and butter, and I'm all set.
