Jet Laggin’

by Jenn (eating bender) on March 12, 2009

Hi amazing, amazing people :) I had to say amazing twice because I have truly been overwhelmed by the turnout for the Quaker giveaway so far. It looks like most of you are digging the old-fashioned oats. Definitely my favorite as far as versatility goes, as many of you pointed out!

I had to be MIA for a couple of days. Between finishing up my paper, packing and traveling, posting was a Mission:Impossible. But I have now arrived in the beautiful, glorious Arizona and am feeling the jet lag of the two hour time difference. I just thought I’d pop in to take care of some “blog business” before I hit the hay!

I’m sure there are many more giveaways out there, but I haven’t been in the blogosphere for a couple of days, so I’ll have to check ’em out later. In the meantime, I’m really looking forward to answering some of the questions you left on my FAQ post. They are all really interesting and thoughtful!


Last but not least, a food picture :) My bosses were kind enough to give me this cookie cake on my last day at work on Wednesday. It was completely unexpected and made my day! I just thought I’d share the cookie gloriousness with all of you.

Until we “meet” again,

Yay for Spring Break and being back in AZ. It was really thoughtful for you bosses to get you the cookie cake. I love that it’s decorated with mini candy bars.

Enjoy being home.. I can’t wait to see what Papa Bender has up his sleeve to cook this week :)

I feel so silly for forgetting about the ORIGINAL Quaker product–old fashioned oats. Can I change my answer?!

That cookie cake looks delicious, and that’s so thoughtful of your bosses to think of you. I always felt so special when my boss at my high school job would bring me a cake on my birthday:)

33 Heather Eats Almond Butter March 13, 2009 at 9:23 am

Sweet Jenn.
Thanks for the link love. There are so many giveaways going on right now, and I am loving the generous sprit of blogland!

I’m green with envy that you’re in beautiful Arizona at this moment. Give it some love for me. Chris and I were joking last night that if our house doesn’t sell, we should just go live in AZ and bum off his parents for a while. Then my math whiz seriously starting crunching some numbers, and I was like Chris, “we cannot pack up all of our belongings and show up at your parent’s door with 2 dogs.” That being said, it does sound quite tempting considering it’s currently freezing and icy here in Nashville!

How sweet of your bosses to have that cookie for you on your last day. I’m sure they’re going to miss you.

Hope you enjoy this week of rest and relaxation, and I expect to see some amazing Papa Bender creations! The great thing about the quarter system is no homework over Spring break!

34 Denise March 14, 2009 at 5:14 am

I always had cookie cakes for my birthday growing up, they were my favorite.

35 Nicole March 14, 2009 at 8:30 am

COOKIE CAKE! I love it.

36 Erin March 14, 2009 at 5:00 pm

I hope you got to sample that cookie cake! It’s so cute! I’m so glad you’re back home with your fam :)
