Women's Running Series Nashville race winner

Checking in quickly to let Holly know that she won the entry to Women's Running Series Nashville Half via the number generator on Holly, email me by the end of today to get your race entry -- yomommaruns(at) (If I don't hear back from Holly by the end of today, I'll pick another winner tomorrow, so we can get the ball rolling on the race registration.) If you still want to sign up but need an incentive, here's a discount code for $10 off: YOMOMMA. 

And now back to my current regularly scheduled program: non-stop house fixing. At least my Tuesday night job as run lead at Life Time requires running, so I won't be totally MIA in the running world. 

Yesterday, we had these quartzite countertops installed. They look similar to marble, but the hardness/durability is between marble and granite. They are not quartz, even though all of my internet searches want to lead me to that when I want info about quartzite. 

Any backsplash recommendations from the masses? I'm running out of ideas that my husband likes. 


  1. Drat didn't win. Next Time, may be.
    Have you considered recycled glass backsplash?

  2. My leanings for your backsplash are something to match or compliment but not compete with your counters which are great. Thinking white subway tile with grey grout. Seen different sizes on the internet that are longer than the regular ones. Maybe in glass? Our husbands' opinions are important but sometimes we have to just pick something or they will say no to everything and pick out something odd that we can't live with. Chances are they like what we pick in the end anyways.

  3. Bolton Manager Freedman Happy with His Team Performance in Loss to Chelsea
    Bolton Wanderers manager Dougie Freedman is satisfied with his team’s displays in their narrow 2-1 loss to Premier League heavyweights Chelsea in the Capital One Cup competition.
    “I felt when I saw the team-sheet that I knew their manager treated this competition with respect and the opposition with respect. They were taking it very seriously,” said Freedman, as quoted by reliable Agen Bola
    “We were going to have to ride our luck a little bit tonight. Our goalkeeper was fantastic. They hit the bar. We had a plan and the plan was to get into the second half still in the game...”
    "Overall I think we gave a good performance and our fans were excellent. We showed that commitment for them."

  4. Ivory Coast Winger Gervinho: Drogba irreplaceable
    AS Roma and Ivory Coast winger Gervinho says his country needs to handle the retirement of irreplaceable striker Didier Drogba who found the net 65 times in 104 appearances for Les Elephants.
    "Drogba was my captain and he immensely helped the Ivorian national team to get to places, and I can say he cannot be replaced for now. I'm happy and proud to have played alongside him," Gervinho said, as quoted by reliable Agen Bola
    “However, we need to turn the page to move forward and overcome future challenges.”
    “We now have a new coach [Herve Renard] and we are competing in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. We have to adapt to the new situation and help ourselves book a place at the 2015 Afcon.”
