A Weekend Treat & Giveaway Winner


What. A. Weekend.

Friday I finished off my last day at work (I was working at OWM in between semesters) with a few treats:

Alter Eco Dark Coconut Toffee and Sparkling Strawberry Kombucha.


I thought the Quinoa bar was great, but the Coconut Toffee was even better! And the strawberry kombucha…well that goes without saying! Fizzy, Fruity, with a hint of…vinegar? I don’t know what the “flavor” is that comes along with kombucha, but I love it.

I rounded out the afternoon with a big glass of new favorite wine:

Layer Cake – Chardonnay. YUM.

On Saturday Parrish and I spent a good four and half hours whipping our yard into shape. Parrish’s Dad Mike was a self-employed Handyman and he has left us with some fun yard tools to play with. I don’t want to be dramatic…but the leaf blower changed my life!

After working in the yard, we headed to one of our favorite places in Durham:

the Durham Bulls Athletic Park!

We LOVE going to cheer on our favorite minor league baseball team. Being able to sit outside in the middle of August in North Carolina without sweating to death is pretty much unheard of, but the DBAP has these HUGE fans that give off an amazing breeze.

It’s almost chilly!

Sunday morning I woke up to a wonderful surprise on Facebook. My favorite local bakery – Zen Cat Bakery – was coming from Greensboro to sell at a Downtown Market in Durham. Best part? She had made FRESH gluten free cinnamon rolls!

Words can’t properly describe how amazing this roll was! Soft. Sweet. Cinnamon-y. Perfection.

I really had a great weekend…a last weekend before school starts this Wednesday, and this cinnamon roll was icing on the cake!


WOW. I had so many entries in the Rudi’s GF Tortilla Giveaway. And the winner is:

Katie W. who emailed and said that she would make the taco cups!

Still want to win? Don’t forget that Rudi’s is doing a giveaway every day on their Facebook page through the end of August! Check it out!
