Last week Beryl over at the lovely lifestyle blog Beryl Lynn had an Etsy giveaway. I entered (lots and lots) and guess what, I won something! I won a set of gorgeous business cards from Avie Designs. Here is what they look like:
Pretty, right? I have been wanting business cards for awhile, because I feel that they are a mark of being a serious adult. I wonder what gave me that idea…
Oh, right. Anyways.
So now I am going to write a blog post to get myself more contest entries, namely, I want this, and luckily the nice folks at Big Girls, Small Kitchen are giving some away as part of their brown bag lunch challenge week.
Now I don’t know about y’all, but when I worked I almost always brought my lunch to work with me. Now that I am semi-employed I am still bringing my lunch with me–today it was leftover whole wheat pasta tossed with some tomatoes, mozzarella, white beans and pesto to make a quick and easy pasta salad. I got my inspiration for the dish, which is a favorite of mine, from Deb over at the Smitten Kitchen. Just make her version of a caprese salad (really tasty on its own mind you) and toss it with some cold pasta. So so so easy y’all.
I love bringing my own lunch to work, most people look at me all jealous and it gives me a sense of satisfaction: I am feeding myself and I am being frugal! Often lunch is delicious leftovers, such as butternut squash soup or some lentils. Sometimes I whip up a quick tuna salad on some lettuce. Sometimes I am really in a rush and I just make a quick peanut butter sandwich. I always accompany my lunch with a diet coke (also brought from home, no need to spend a dollar on a can from the nearby deli!) and bring some Greek yogurt or a banana for a snack later on. So easy, so sensible!
And you know what would make my from-home lunch even better? An adorable BuiltNY lunch tote in which to carry it. So I hope that my online contest entry luck stays strong and that the Big Girls, Small Kitchen folks pick me as a winner!
