About grabafriend

I am 34, a mother of one sweet little 6 1/2 month old baby boy, wife of a social worker, trainer/walker/provider for 2 wonderful dogs, volunteer foster home for a Min Pin Rescue (, co-owner of two doggie daycares in Madison WI (, and part owner in a giant behemoth of a pontoon boat. Yep, think that's all the labels I can affix to myself. I am blogging about my journey to get in the best shape of my life from 9/1/12 to 10/1/13, and bring my friends along for the ride by asking them to pick a month and focus on some healthy activity with me.

  1. Please add the following to list of donors: Middleton Sports Bowl, MetcalfsSentry, Scotts Bakery (donating a sheet cake for the event, I will pick up Fri and bring to the auction), Essen Haus, Knoches food center, Caledonia Tree farms ( a 8ft balsom and a handmade wreath these are beautiful), 2 professional photographs from Cameron Gillee (a local artist who displays at art fairs all over the midwest)

    • Marcia – you are an amazing person! Thank you so much for spending a ton of your free time on rounding up items for the auction! Attendees of the benefit are going to win some fantastic items!
