Weekend + Giveaway Winner

Happy Monday/St. Patrick’s Day/Snow Day!

I have a lot of adventures to cover today and of course the internet decides to act up on my lunch break when I want to write about them so I’m going to try and get everything covered.  I hope you all had a great weekend. If you live in the DC Metro area, you may be confused as to what season we are actually in.

Saturday I ran the Lucky Leprechaun 5K and by the end of the day it was a lovely 65 degrees.

20140317-151714.jpgDinosaur kale, a different flavor of Purely Elizabeth granola (the best granola ever made and also gluten free!), and some weird abomination of meat/fruit bars for Neil (wtf?). I didn’t get the zucchini slices because at $6.49 I’ll just make them myself. Good idea for a flavoring though!

Sunday we went to my in-laws house for their Holi party.  I got fancy and Indian:
