I Want That Hat Giveaway

I am really excited to announce my 2nd giveaway from I Want That Hat. One lucky reader/follower will win an owl hat of their size and color choice from I Want That Hat. I hope you don't think I am crazy for doing a hat giveaway as soon as the weather started to turn around here, but as a savy shopper, the spring is the best time to get your deals on next winter's children's clothing. I already have hats, coats, and snowpants for my kids for at least the next year, if not two, bought on clearance. I saw these hats on my friend Angie's children, and she referred me to Noi, so I could get my own. Here are Keira and Soren in their hats.
I ordered mine a little big so they would be good for next winter. Keira has a 5T + and Soren has a 2T-4T size on, and both of my children are very small on the growth charts for their ages. You can also measure your child's head circumference and consult the size chart for more accurate sizing. Noi and Pat also make a lot of other cute animal hats as well as florals. This giveaway will go until Sunday, May 22nd, with the winner announced on Monday, May 23. Your hat will be made custom for you, so it will take a couple weeks to arrive, depending on your location and how fast you can decide your colors. It took me forever to decide because they were all so cute!

Also, in other news, I am happy to report that I DID in fact get to go on a group ride yesterday with the ladies from VO2 Multisport. My first ever group ride with people that I did not know at all, and I must say, I had a great time. I did not get lost or dropped and I made some new friends. I am expected to be out of town in MI (yeah!) for next Monday's ride, so I likely won't be able to ride with these ladies again for another 2 weeks. Hopefully I can get a sitter back home and get in a ride with my MI ladies instead. I am feeling a little bit better about R4R since I swam in the morning before the ride, did 20 miles at a relaxing 16.3mph, and then ran 2 miles afterwards for a mini brick. The course was pretty twisty and turny, so I didn't spend as much time in aero as I hope to in my race. Also, being a group ride, I needed to stay up for stability. It was pretty crowded and conjested in the beginning with lots of cars, runnes, and other riders, but I hear that as the newness of the nice weather wears off, the crowds will thin. I felt good afterwards too. Mostly, I felt insanely hungry afterwards, and could have done more had it been required of me and I had taken in more food during the ride. I was happy that I was able to successful get my smaller bottle in and out of the cage while riding without wrecking or stopping. I didn't try to use it to refill my aero drink while riding. I will have to save that for another day.

I would wear that hat! How awesome if you could get one in Aquaphor colors to match the kit? :)

Good to hear you were able to spend some quality time on the bike and making new friends.
