The Connection Runners + TIME 12 Days of Giving Contest

I have a dirty little secret I've been keeping from you, I am OBSESSED with shoes. I don't need the latest and greatest electronics, I'm super low maintenance on hair and make up but I have a hard time resisting a boot sale. So I'm super excited to be able to offer you a sneek peak at an event will be launching TOMORROW. It is called the "12 Days of Giving Contest".

The prizes are awesome, and all you have to do is answer a different holiday related question on their blog each day. I've answered a few of the questions below, and did a little shopping on their site.

Day 1: 12/1 They want to hear about your first holiday memory. Kicking the contest off is a prize from Dr.Marten. I've been a fan of theirs for years and own several pairs from HIGH SCHOOL that are still in great shape. Those things simply don't wear out. And check out how cute these are:

Day 2: 12/2 What is your favorite holiday movie? The North Face is sponsoring this day with some amazing gear.

Day 3: 12/5 Best Holiday Gift Ever? I'm entering this day for sure, great prize from Soleus.

Day 4: 12/6 Favorite Holiday Memory: I think each year is getting better and more memorable for me. As Dash gets older, and gets more and more into the Christmas spirit I enjoy the holidays even more. This days prize is from Rockport.

Day 5: 12/7 Favorite Winter Activity: My favorite would be Christmas light runs. This was a tradition we started two years ago, we load Dash up in the jogging stroller, then pick different neighborhoods (with sidewalks) to run in, taking in the Christmas lights along the way. Day fives prize is from Tecnica Shoes, and since I'm currently lusting over the boots below, I'm definitely entering this day.

Day 6: 12/8 Tell them your worst holiday gift to be entered to win a prize from Sanita.

Day 7: 12/9 Whats your favorite holiday gift to give? Answer to win a prize from Sorel.

Day 8: 12/12 What always gets you in the holiday spirit? Christmas music and decorations always get me in the spirit. That answer (on their blog) would enter me to win some comfy slippers from Geisswein.

Day 9: 12/13 What's your favorite holiday treat? Mine would be these tiny sugar press cookies my grandmother makes. Prizes for ladies from Jessica Simpson Shoes and Sperry Top-Sider for men. I do believe I need these Jessica Simpson pumps:

Day 10: 12/14 Favorite Holiday Song: Ok, I'm fully aware this is ridiculous, but I really like the Hipopotamus song. Totally cheesy, but reminds me of Christmas as a child. Columbia is offering up day tens prize.

Day 11: 12/15 How do you decorate for the holidays? We are big fans of decorating, and Dash loves Christmas so each year they go up earlier and earlier. This year our tree and outside lights were up the Monday BEFORE Thanksgiving. Today is sponsored by Tsubo.

Day 12: 12/16 What is your favorite holiday tradition? Sherpani is providing the amazing gear for today. This messenger bag is calling my name:
