When was the last time I updated on a Saturday night? Not so sure, and don't judge me, I have a life!

Anyway, wanted to get out the winner of the Betty Crocker giveaway. helped me pick, and it came up with entry number two, so the winner is....

"Can my sweet treat pleeeeease be Gummi Cubs? They are my go-to when I'm having a bad day."

Yes, that CAN be your sweet treat Cindy. =) Congratulations! E-mail me your mailing address by Monday night to: and My Blog Spark will get that great prize package sent your way.

Today Ben and I headed into DC and went to great restaurant called Matchbox that has a wonderful gluten free menu. I should have taken a picture of my pear walnut salad and bacon wrapped shrimp with cheesy grits, delicious!

We also went to the Newseum, as we're both huge news geeks, walked around Union Square, and then came back home to have our friend Kristin over for a nice dinner, what an awesome day!

Tomorrow, I'll finally be making that three bean chili I'd been dreaming of making when we got settled (we're almost there!) and trying out gluten free pumpkin and corn bread recipes. I'll let you all know how they go, and if they turn out well I'll post the recipes and pictures of the results (if they're a disaster I'll post pictures of results as well so I can at least have fun with my baking blunders).

Have a great rest of your weekend!
