It’s more exciting than Christmas…..

I called my mom this morning to tell her the good news (I actually woke her up like a kid at xmas) – that because of all you amazing individuals we had enough votes to take her to the lead and win the Tommie Copper Contest! YAY!!!!

To my surprise my mom told me she’d never wear the shorts and is letting me get them for my new found Osteoarthritis and hip pain!!!! I can’t wait to review them for you 😀 and she is going on a TC spending spree! I think she wants another knee sleeve (as she only has one), both ankle sleeves and who knows what else! 

Words can not express how happy it feels to not only win this for my mom, not only get these shorts for my own pain but to feel so loved and supported by YOU! I was seriously shocked at how many of you tweeted, shared, posted all over about the contest, not to mention voted any way you could, every day!!!! Thank you so much. My mom says a big thank you too :)

So here’s another virtual hug – as promised xo

yes, that is your hoodie Colin - I'll give it back....one day

I seriously LOVE Tommie Copper. I know some athletes prefer traditional compression sleeves but I like that TC’s aren’t as tight and uncomfortable and also – that anyone can wear them. So people like my mom can live pain free!

Logan was so excited that his Grandma kicked some butt that he thought his plate was a hat! 

I think I’m seeing some “hangy-ball” their mister 😛



1. do you use Tommie Copper compression gear? if so, do you like it?

2. have you entered an online contest and won before?? do you want to try and enter one??

 I will never again be entering another contest online. It caused me way too much anxiety 😛 and I felt like a big annoyance plastering “Vote for me” all over the internet :) so don’t worry!

  1. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK! this makes me so dang unbelievably happy! can’t think of a more deserving family that i would hope to win such a contest! CONGRATS!!!!! it was my pleasure and honor to support you and your sweet momma :)

  2. Yay I’m so happy you won!! What a lovely gesture from your mum, I really hope that you find they help the pain! So pleased for you both – you deserve it :-)

    I would love some of their stuff, unfortunately there’s no way I could really afford it :-( I’ll have to keep saving!

  3. Yay! So happy for you and your mom :)

    I once entered a facebook photo contest and did so poorly, despite feeling like I was constantly posting ‘vote for me!’, that I vowed never to enter another one.

  4. Congrats!! I have never tried anything from TC but I am glad that you shared it. My mom needs something to help with her arm. I am going to tell her to check it out! I can’t say that I have ever won an online contest unless a giveaway counts :)

  5. Congrats Ali and MommyMc :) I made sure that I voted off Danny’s computer too and he got very interested in seeing how you were going! I was distraught this morning when he yelled at me from the living room that you hadn’t won. I yelled back “Who the hell won? She was in front last time I checked!!” To which he replied “Someone name Ali McLean”… I think he expected the winners name to have something about Spatulas in it!?! LOL

  6. I have a pair of TC calf sleeves that I won in a blog giveaway! Nice! I love them.

    Congrats! I think I only got out there to vote once, but so glad you won. I tried to vote once more but it had ended.

    Enjoy the new stuff!

  7. So excited for you guys!! I love TC as well, they helped with my knee tendonitis so much!! I hope the shorts help the hip pain, you deserve some pain free time!!
