Three Things Thursday

1. The randomly selected winner of my BarkBox giveaway is Jill Y.! Congratulations on scoring big for the fur babies in your family. Never fear, dear readers, I have another giveaway ready to go next week. Let's just say it will bring a smile to any runner's face.

2. I've been at my new job for six months, which means I'm now eligible to work from home one day per week. It also means that our office mascot and I worked on the balcony for a bit today and I took a run at lunch without having to stink up my office for the remainder of the afternoon and was able to put my sweats back on this afternoon. This is bliss, people.

3. I went to another fabulous Yelp Elite party last night. This time, Alyssa was my plus one. I'll have to actually get a picture with her one of these times or else the Internet is going to start to think I have an imaginary friend. I promise she's real, and you should read her blog: Don't Look Down

Anyhow, the party was at Frato's Pizza in Schaumburg, which has undergone big changes in the last two years. It used to be a greasy little hot dog stand - now it has a chef on staff who whips up gourmet pizzas, pasta, burgers and wings. They even have their own signature beer, a caramel ale we all sampled. I was a big fan of the pizza crust. It was so delicious.
Join me next time: here are my tips for getting invited to Yelp parties.

I love that you can work from home one day a week. I would love that option even though I now work so close to home.

Yay! Working from home is the best! :)

I love your dog! He should post reviews on yelp on if venues are dog friendly!

I wish all jobs at least offered you a hose to wash off with! lol
