Upcoming Reviews + Lunch on the Run

Remember when I gave away that awesome blue cast iron dutch oven earlier this year? Well, I get to work with CSN again and I’m so excited!

They have so many products available through their websites – everything from rugs to bathroom vanities to bedding and kitchen gadgets galore.

I’m going to be able to review one of their products soon (that I’ll be using along with something else I’m reviewing from my OpenSky shop) – should be fun! I’m psyched to finally try these two things.

Surprise, surprise. Nick and I are on our way out of town…again!

This will be a very short trip, mostly filled with driving, but it will totally be worth every minute in the car.

We’re heading to Maryland with Nick’s dad to pick up his mom who stayed with her new grandson and family this week!!! So we’re tagging along to pick her up and to meet our new nephew :) I’ve seen pictures, but I cannot wait to meet him and hold him and start spoiling him silly.

Lunch was quick and right out of the fridge today.

I had some of my wheatberry salad (wheatberries, white beans, carrots, onion, celery, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, olive oil) along with the leftover roasted potatoes from last night’s dinner and some green beans that needed to be eaten.

And a side of tomato!

Easy. Fast. Tasty.

I also packed a bunch of snacks/food to take on the road! I know the trip is going to  be quick and mostly in the car, so I wanted to make sure I had a bunch of good stuff to take with me. Maybe I’ll share…maybe I won’t ;)

Happy Friday!


  1. I’m going on a trip soon and I’m definitely planning out my foods for that. I’m always afraid I’m going to get caught in a situation if I don’t have any food and my blood sugar drops, or if there are only fast food restaurants around and no healthy options.

  2. Yay for fun giveaways! :)

    And fresh tomatoes! :) I could eat one with every meal this time of year! :)

  3. Oooh have a fun roadtrip! And congrats on the nephew :) I love babies!!

  4. Have fun with your new nephew! You will be an amazing auntie! :) Enjoy the weekend!
