Small Business Saturday


As you are planning your holiday shopping, holiday hair, holiday gift to your pet in the form of yearly vaccinations, holiday meals, insurance for the Lexus someone presented you in your driveway with a bow on top (the car, not the person) – please support these small businesses that have supported us.  And in general, SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESSES!  Yeah!

Here is a link to the list, lovingly broken down into categories just for you, of the businesses and their websites.  Print it, keep it in your car!

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.
