Rainy Day Giveaway
I’m so excited to have my first giveaway! Let’s get the eats out of the way first.
After blogging yesterday I had a banana with pb.
You probably didn’t notice but the house we’re renting has the same plates my mom has at her house. Weird.
Then Andrew and I did some more shopping. The rain never really slowed down yesterday so we watched Little Miss Sunshine after returning until dinner time.
For dinner we were going to have grilled chicken but with the rain my dad didn’t feel like going outside to cook, so we baked it in the oven, it was marinated in Italian dressing.
On the side we had broccoli and Near East Wild Rice in the Garlic and Herb flavor.
And to drink with dinner I had:
Last night we went to bed nice and early, when I woke up this morning it was raining again. The good news is the weather is supposed to be really nice the rest of the week, so we used today to do some more shopping. Before we left I had a Peach Chobani with cereal.
I love cereal/yogurt messes.
We went to do some more shopping today at the outlets. In addition to some clothes that I purchased, my SUPER wonderful mom bought me a gorgeous new Coach bag!
I love the blue color! I have the best mom!
Between stores I had a Clif Chocolate Chip Z bar.
On top of my Coach bag from last year.
Andrew and I also made a special purchase today. I’d like to introduce you to our new pet, Geoffrey.
He is a Hermit Crab with a Giraffe painted shell. Giraffes are by far my favorite animal and if I can’t have one of those as a pet, a hermit crab with a giraffe shell will have to do. Apparently he is tired from an exciting day he was climbing on the side of his cage for a while on the way home but now he’s sleeping, I’m sure you’ll see plenty of pictures of Geoffrey in the future.
For lunch we stopped at Sonic. We don’t have any Sonic’s near us so everyone wanted to try it, I was going to wait until we got home to eat but we still had more shopping to do. So I got a grilled chicken sandwich with no mayo.
It looks like a whole wheat bun but I can’t be sure. It was pretty good.
Now that I have caught you all up on the past few meals it’s time for…
My First Giveaway!
One of my favorite things about vacation is buying my friends souvenirs. It’s always so fun to come home from vacation and share something from your time away with your friends. You girls have all been really good friends to me since I started this blog back in January so although I can’t buy something for everyone I’d like to give you each the chance to have some great souvenirs from The Outer Banks! I bought a few things to give to one lucky reader.
Here’s each item in the giveaway.
First up is a T-Shirt. It’s a size small but it looks like it would fit most people, if you win and you require a different size I will gladly exchange it before sending it to you. It looks pink but it is tan with green writing.
The next thing is a magnet clip.
The next item is a coffee mug.
And the last 2 items are some local treats.
I love salt water taffy and I found a cute little tote bag stuffed with some salt water taffy.
Last part of the package is a can of nuts from a local shop that’s called Try My Nuts. I picked out a can of peanuts called Dirty Nuts. They are seasoned with salt, paprika, black pepper, garlic, onion, and chipotle. I was able to sample them while at the store yesterday and I can tell you they are really delicious.
Here’s the package all together.
I am on the lookout for a nice big tote bag for the winner as well so I’ll be adding that to the prize as well, and will share it with you as soon as I find and buy it.
I’m giving you a couple ways to win:
- Leave a comment (on this post!) telling me your favorite vacation spot.
- Link back to this on your blog, if you don’t have a blog send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, be sure to let me know if you linked it in the comment section.
So there you go! I’ll announce the winner Friday afternoon so you have plenty of time to enter!
