OSS Artisans & Vendors going BIG!

Our good friend & OSS Academy instructor, Megan Faulkner Brown (aka. The Sweet Tooth Fairy), has enjoyed phenomenal success this year, including selling her delicious cake bites on QVC.   She needs our help!  QVC has an annual "Customer Choice Foods Awards" and her cake bites are nominated for best newcomer to their food category! We want her to win!  This will take a second of your time, click on this link and scroll to question #8 and vote.  That's it... now watch for our Academy classes to be listed in a couple of weeks, and sign up for hers early, they always sell out!
This feels awkward because it is me, but here we go.  I started organizing fully supported, non-competitive, women only bike rides (Goldilocks) last year.  Early this spring I started talking to US TriSports about organizing a women only triathlon under the same philosophy as Goldilocks.  They agreed it was a great idea, and TriathaMom was born!  

TriathaMom will take place in Herriman, Utah on Saturday, September 24th.  From our site," TriathaMom is a fully supported, non-competitve, women only triathlon.  Make no misteak, this isa REAL triathlon, (300 yard swim, 12 mile bike ride, and 5k run) complete with the REAL triathlon experience of chip timing, body making, and intense feeling of accomplishment.  We know you have had this idea... "Can I do a triathlon?" in you head for a while now.  With TriathaMom you no longer have a reason not to!  You will know what to do, where to be, all questions answered with an attitude of "Can I help you?" rather than, "Get out of my way!" 

If that isn't enough, we know your family wants to cheer you on throughout this experience, so we are providing a Carnival Style Cheering Section with a 'sign making station' a 'triathlon treasure hunt', foot races, popcorn, cotton candy, and everything to keep them entertained while you (and your friends) fulfill a goal that took months of training and hard work."

Also, our friends at Pear & Peonies have opened a darling store in Holladay, Utah called Blue Bird Style & Design.  They are having a huge summer sale this weekend, you do not want to miss!  From their site, "Blue Bird Style & Design is NOW OPEN! 4646 So.
