I am sick.
Allergy attack + sinus infection + common cold sick.
So here are some happy things and a weekend recap.
If you sign up for Au Bon Pain’s eclub, you get a free travel mug.
Also got it filled with coffee for free, which I wasn’t expecting! Not pumpkin spice, but a blend of vanilla and hazelnut.
I haven’t properly said THANK YOU for the box of LOVE from Laura at Love Grown Foods that she sent before my wedding. Unless you live under a rock, I’m sure you’ve either tried or read about this granola – and it is even more delicious than everyone says. I spread the love by sharing it with family members and the hubby as thank you gifts for helping with wedding tasks. I am going to start requesting that they sell it at my local stores! I love the simple ingredient lists, big clusters, and delicious flavor combos. Thank you again! Find some love at a store near you.
Made white chocolate “Monster Munch” to take to a jewelry party (and subsequently eat the leftovers). One of the most addictive, sickenly sweet (but perfect) treats I’ve made in a long time. I originally saw it on Kristin’s blog and knew I’d love it – but didn’t think I’d eat so much of it!
Still better than the 300+ calorie white chocolate mochas I used to start my days with in college, right? :)
Sunday’s breakfast was a big batch of blueberry pancakes. The hubby and I killed this platter by ourselves – they’re mini sized, I swear!
Living in Pittsburgh means I bleed black and gold, and Steeler games call for munchies! Along with the remaining Monster Munch, I made a batch of my brother and husband’s favorite game watching food – buffalo chicken dip. See the mini souffle dish? Buffalo chick-pea dip for me!
Pittsburgh schools each have their own “Kennywood Day” during the late spring, when the whole district goes on the same day. Since I started working full-time (and during grad school), I’ve been missing out on these Kennywood picnic days with my family, so I was really excited to get a couple free tickets yesterday. Amusement parks never get old, even one that I’ve gone to every year since I was a toddler!
We rode our favorite roller coasters and snacked on some theme park food – the husband even chose a veggie burger so I could have a few bites!
PS – have you all heard about the birth control recall? Be safe and make sure your brand isn’t on the list!
What random, fun thing did you do this weekend?
