Just Because…

Wow, I am on a blogging roll….Weird Funk: 27, Noelle: 3. I’m catching up!

I am in another weird food phase again…I don’t want to talk about it. Pistachios, bread, soup…I can’t stop eating!

In other news…. This week, “Clean Eating” has been an area of heated debate for those around me.

I’ve had a lot of great discussions with anyone and everyone about food lately… it can be incredibly refreshing and completely disheartening, depending on who you talk to…..

I happened to come across this today and it made me laugh . If only it was that simple!

Happy Eating!


You Don’t Need a Reason…

Update: Congratulations to Liz, you are the winner!

Sometimes you really don’t need a reason other than “just because.”

As I was sitting at my desk on Friday afternoon, wondering if I would ever make it to the end of the day, my wonderful husband walked into the office and placed a perfectly wrapped box in front of me.

“What is this?!” I asked.

He replied, “Just open it.”

I carefully opened the package, trying extra hard not to destroy the pretty wrapping paper.

The box contained a brand new Vera Bradley wallet. A cute design composed of various greens and blues. It instantly brought a smile to my face.

If you know me, you know that I don’t like to spend money on things like clothing, wallets or purses. As a result, my old wallet was on its last legs. Ben, knowing this, decided to get me a “just because” gift…that I could actually use.

So, keeping with the spirit of “just because,” I am giving away a $10 gift card to a local business.

Cheechako Taco is a bangin’ taco joint located in downtown Plattsburgh. They focus on two things: Tacos and burritos. They also get major bonus points for using local produce, tricky trivia questions and crazy decor.

They have a little something for everyone’s taste, all with a unique twist and lots of melted cheese. You can view their menu here.

I highly recommend this place. Check it out if you live in the area or even if you are just visiting!

The Rules:

  • Tell me about a time when you have gotten a “just because” gift and how it made you feel by commenting on this post.

Disclaimer: Cheechako Taco has no idea who I am (other than a customer who frequents their shop). They are not sponsoring this giveaway in any way–I am doing it because I love tacos. And burritos. And you. The end.
