Weekend Favorites

I don’t have a weekender. I haven’t been reading other blogs or news sites lately – I’ve just felt so busy lately! I feel so out of touch. But I DO know there was a big deal in Texas, a big deal with DOMA, and a big deal with all the heat in the Southwest. I keep trying to convince my parents to come visit since they don’t have A/C and Utah is hooooot right now. North Carolina is also hot but at least I have A/C! 🙂

So, since I don’t have favorite links, how about some other favorites lately? 

Favorite Quote from the last week: 


 [I just started watching How I Met Your Mother…I’m in season 2 I think]

Favorite Saturday Ritual

Getting pour-over coffee from Krankies at the Farmer’s Market and sipping it – even when it’s 85 degrees – while picking out fresh, local veggies.

Favorite new discovery: Trader Joe’s has GLUTEN-FREE OREOS!

I was at a party over the weekend and was staring at a plate of Oreo’s, thinking how much I missed Oreo’s. And then Carolyn told me they were gluten-free! She got everything gluten-free for the party that she could, just for me and my boyfriend. How incredibly thoughtful is that? 

I love this picture with her two bulldogs laying nearby. hehe. So cute.

Favorite Weekend Activities: all of them!

8 mile run (8:10 pace) with my boyfriend, time at the pool with Whitney, party with friends and making new friends, pedicure with Candace (and we both picked out he same color – ha! barbie pink), visiting Anna & her new gorgeous baby.

Alright, time to get ready for bed and ready for the work week! It’s a short week – 4th of July (YAY!) and wedding at the beach (YAY!). 



Blogging is not my full-time gig, but running a blog isn't free. I pay for blog theme updates, hosting fees, domain fees, and other expenses to keep it up, functioning and hacker-free.

To help keep my blog accessible and free, I include affiliate links from time to time and receive a small percentage of purchases you make. I don't link to products that I wouldn't personally buy, so rest assured I won't refer you to crap! :)

    Have you tried Trader Joe’s gluten free all-purpose flour? I wonder how well it works.

    • Teri [a foodie stays fit]

      I haven’t but I’ve wanted to! I had a brand I loved but can’t find it anymore. I’ll be sure to post about TJ’s GF flour when I try it 🙂

    Is your boyfriend also gluten free? I want to find a gluten free boyfriend! It would sure make life easier. 🙂

    • Teri [a foodie stays fit]

      Yes he is! eating with and cooking for him is actually how I figured out I have a gluten intolerance! It’s super convenient. 🙂
