Yes, it’s the weekend! Finally it’s beginning to become beautiful again in Minnesota.

Yesterday was gorgeous too, so my friend and I went decided to embark on an 8 mile run. Don’t even ask me how that happened since I just started running again last week. I’m thinking it’s because of those magical quinoa stuffed peppers and probably the fact that I put myself on a baking restriction last week.

Besides that, it feels like I’m in a really good place right now. I’ve been trying to take a little more time for myself. In fact, today I went on a fun date! We went to this specialty shop and stocked up on gourmet cheeses, french bread, olives, and chocolate; then had a picnic by the lake. I can’t tell you how nice it is to take a break, relax and just enjoy little moments. I forget to do that sometimes, don’t you?


Anyway, I’m not posting weekly favorites this week but I am sharing with you this unbelievable Dark Chocolate, Raspberry, and Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich that I made for a fun contest!

Oh… did I mention I NEED YOUR VOTE in order to win?! Yes, you and your awesome self can help me travel to California and tour a winery. HOW AMAZING?! Please head over to the St. Francis Wine Facebook page, and vote for my sweet and savory sandwich! Note: you’ll need to like their page in order to vote!

Thanks guys! Have an amazing weekend. xo!
