Are you a Sweet Tea Junkie? GIVEAWAY!!

Good morning friends! In an attempt to make your Monday just a little more cheerful, I've got a GREAT giveaway for you today! I've been so excited about this, and have had the hardest time keeping it to myself. I have a feeling y'all are going to love love love this giveaway so be sure to read this entire post, and make sure you do everything you can to get all of the extra entries!

I was recently contacted by Michael Dorman, owner of Sweet Tea Junkie, a graphic design, print shop & apparel company in central Florida. This company was started as an experiment between a group of friends who loved sweet tea and wanted to see how many other "sweet tea junkies" there were out there. After starting a Myspace page and discovering more than 8,000 people shared their affinity for sweet tea, they knew they had stumbled onto something!

Michael decided to design a shirt and have a friend wear it to a music festival in order to see if anyone expressed an interest/desire to have their own shirt. After seeing the positive response to his design, Michael went to work on 3 new designs and the rest is history! It's been nearly 5 years since the idea was first conceived, and Sweet Tea Junkie is still going strong, printing amazing tea shirts and of course, consuming lots of sweet tea!


On to the giveaway! I know we all love our sweet tea and I'm willing to bet most of my readers are "sweet tea junkies" like me!

One winner will receive Sweet Tea Junkie's most popular tea shirt - the Welcome to the South tea shirt is perfect for all of my Southern readers!

One winner will receive Sweet Tea Junkie's newest design - the Sweet Tea Script tea shirt has been very popular among buyers and for good reason, it's so cute!

And lastly, one winner will receive their choice of any tea shirt that Sweet Tea Junkie offers! Whoever wins this will be awarded a $21.50 shop credit, which will cover the cost of a shirt and shipping!

I nearly forgot to mention one of the coolest things about these tea shirts! People are given the opportunity to submit their favorite sweet tea recipe, and if it's good, they are printed on the inside of each tea shirt. So you are not only getting a shirt, but you are also getting a tried and true recipe for a delicious beverage!!

There will be a total of 3 winners!

Sweet Tea Junkie is also offering a discount to Sweet Tea Diaries readers of 15% off your purchase. Please use the promo code "sweetteadiaries" during checkout. Y'all, this is such a generous giveaway, and I want to say thank you again to Michael for offering my readers the chance to win such amazing prizes and this discount code.

Best of the Week

Best of the Week
February 21-25, 2011

I'm very excited to announce that C has finally started his blog! He only has a few posts so far, but he's well on his way to becoming addicted to blogging! I think it will mostly be beer reviews, but he'll occasionally blog about food and our weekends as well! Tell your boyfriend/husband/any beer aficionado you know to check it out...I'm sure he'd love to see new followers :)

The Brewtal Yeti (get it?!)

As an update to last week's Best Of, I received my blog book from Blurb, and I couldn't be more pleased! Many of you expressed an interest in turning your blog into a book, and Blurb makes it super easy and affordable. The quality of the book is great, and you have complete control over every aspect of the creation process. I did my book in about 4 hours. It's 102 pages and the total cost (including shipping) was under $40. Here are some pictures of my book:

National Margarita Day was on Tuesday, and margaritas are like my all time favorite beverage! So C made me a yummy margarita to accompany our chicken taco dinner. Thank you internet for telling me about this wonderful celebration!


And really, the best of the week is the fact that at 6 pm today, I will be on vacation for 9 glorious days! I am so excited and I've hardly been able to sit through this week without daydreaming about sleeping in and relaxing!

C and I are going to Carlsbad for the weekend. C had an event that ended up getting canceled because of bad weather, but we already had reserved our timeshare. I'm sure we'll find something to do! I am excited about watching the Oscars.

Then on Monday, we are driving to Las Vegas to meet up with my parents, and on Thursday, C's parents are joining us, along with his aunt & uncle, and a couple of cousins. This will be the first time I'm meeting his parents as well as the first time his parents are meeting my parents (obvi). I'm really praying that things go smoothly and everyone gets along. (By the way, this was in no way planned, it was coincidence that our parents were going to be in Vegas the same week so we just decided to get all the introductions over with.)

Come back Monday for an AWESOME giveaway...I am so excited I can hardly stand it, but I'm going to keep my mouth shut for a couple more days! But I do promise that you won't want to miss it! Have a great weekend friends!

Jumping on the Fit Train - Week 8

Biggest Loser
There are literally NO words.

Okay, I'm lying...I have plenty to say :)

I am appalled that the black team (i.e., Marci and Deni mainly, but I think Jesse a little bit too) purposely gained weight in order to "save" the younger players from elimination. In all of the seasons, I have not seen this many incidents where players purposely gain weight. First it was Don, Dan, and Irene, and now these 3 in this episode. It's amazing because the players that gained weight were applauded for being "selfless." What planet are we on that it's okay to do this and it's considered selfless?

Moses said it best, "I do respect what they did, but it doesn't really teach the children to go out through life to tackle anything. Regardless of whatever obstacle's in front of you, give everything you got."

I really hope that the producers have learned something from this episode and in the future, they don't tell players about a double elimination until the weigh-in because in the end, it really only hurts the players

And on another note, Jesse got completely screwed in the elimination. He should not have gone home. It was Marci and Deni who wanted to throw the weigh-in to begin with, and use Jesse as the scapegoat, should they have to go to elimination. This is so unfair and makes absolutely zero sense to me. He needs to be there, certainly more than Marci or Deni (who ended up being eliminated for falling below the red line). I just really don't get why the team ganged up on Jesse over Marci...oh, and also - my new least favorite player is Hannah...or is it Olivia? Actually it's both. They've got bad attitudes and temper problems.


Like I expected, it was tough to get back in the mindset I needed to be in. I struggled to get to the gym and I didn't make the best food choices, especially at lunch. Dinner tends to be easier because C and I are able to make the right choices together, but I'm on my own at lunch. Thankfully, even with moderate exercise and less attention paid to my calorie intake, I was still able to lose the weight I had added while on vacation (it was about 1 lb).

The not so great part? I'm heading out on a 9 day vacation starting Saturday, and am concerned about how to stay on the right path while still having fun. I know this is a situation that I will encounter for the rest of my life, and I have to figure out a way to continue the "get fit" journey even when there are temptations and obstacles in my way.

Here are 5 rules I've made for myself and I hope they help me stick to the plan:

Work out every day. Whether it be only 300 or up to 800+ calories burned, exercise is exercise. It gets the blood moving, it kick starts your metabolism, it helps you burn calories all day long! Plus, it makes me more conscious of calories consumed if I know how hard it was to burn those calories in the first place.

Eat a sensible breakfast. For me, breakfast is what keeps me structured throughout the day. I try to stick to a 200 calorie breakfast, usually in the form of a Luna bar. This fills me up for such few calories, and there is no reason to go crazy at breakfast, especially when you have the whole day ahead of you.

Drink LOTS of water. This is a habit that I've always been good at. I actually love water, and rarely drink other beverages, except maybe a glass of sweet tea every now and then. Water is a great way to keep your stomach happy and full, especially when you may be tempted to eat even though you're not hungry.

Keep fruits and healthy snacks within arm's reach. I love potato chips! Obviously, this snack isn't very conducive to my "get fit" plan, but I've found a great alternative to curb my crunch cravings...popchips! These are a delicious snack and I highly recommend them! Taken from their website:

We don't fry it (unhealthy). We don't bake it (undelicious). We take wholesome potatoes, add a little heat and pressure, and pop! It's a chip. The only thing added is a flavorful blend of seasonings for a snack so delicious and crispy, you won't even notice it's (we hesitate to say) healthier.

What's out? More than half the fat of fried potato chips, trans fats, and cholesterol. All gone. For good. What's popped in? Only what's natural, tons of delicious, and plenty of crunch.

I also love the sugar-free Jello pudding cups - the dulce de leche is especially tasty and at only 60 calories, makes an ideal afternoon snack. And of course, I try to eat around 3 servings of FRESH fruit a day - usually an orange, pineapple slices or a handful of grapes. Yes, fruit is high in sugar and sometimes calories, but it's a way better option than say a 100 calorie snack pack, which has absolutely no nutritional value.

Keep alcohol to a minimum.
Honestly, this won't be a problem. It's very rare that I drink anymore, mainly because I get awful headaches and very tired after only one sip of alcohol. I'm not sure why, as this has really only happened in the last year (believe me, I used to have zero problems with drinking!!) but it's substantial enough to make me not want to drink.

Putting my rules down in writing makes it feel real, and I'm now being held accountable by each one of you that's reading. I'd like to thank all of you for coming on this "get fit" journey with me! I know this feature isn't appealing to everyone, but I'm very appreciative of the comments I do get, and each one helps to motivate me! So thank you :)

TV Show Update

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, then you know I love my tv shows! After the holidays, I dropped some of my regulars that just weren't doing it for me anymore, and added some new shows. Currently, here's what I'm watching:

Chicago Code
Hawaii Five-O
Castle (on hulu)
Greek (on hulu)

Biggest Loser: Couples
White Collar

Top Chef All-Stars
Toddlers & Tiaras
Survivor: Redemption Island (premiered last week)

Jersey Shore
Private Practice (on hulu)

Amazing Race (premiered this week)
Brothers & Sisters (on hulu)

It may seem like I watch a lot, but you'll see that some of the shows are watched via hulu on my lunch breaks so it isn't like I'm sitting in front of my tv 24 hours a day :)

I've cut out the following shows:
Gossip Girl (I can't stand this show anymore)
NCIS (the regular one is too boring for me now, even silver fox can't make me watch)
Criminal Minds
The Mentalist (I didn't like the character JJ LaRoche so I stopped watching)

I've picked up The Chicago Code (good so far!) and of course Survivor and Amazing Race.

Did you give up any of your regular shows and pick up something new? Let me know in the comments!

Weekend Recap

I almost didn't write a weekend recap because let's face it - 75% of my weekend was spent sleeping! But that's exactly what I needed so I'm glad I had a free schedule.

Some high points of my weekend:

The Kogi food truck was near my house on Saturday and we randomly discovered they were there when I was checking my twitter. There is usually a looooong line anytime Kogi is around, but we lucked out and were able to walk right up and order.

The verdict? Two thumbs up!

The rest of Saturday was spent napping and then going to the gym. Quick little rant: there was literally no one there so all of the cardio machines were open. I was at one end and there were at least 12 open machines down the line. Then this one girl decided to use the machine RIGHT BESIDE ME! Why? I'm not sure why it annoyed me so much, but it did.

On Sunday I was finally able to do the laundry. This was very exciting for me...I love having clean clothes!

C and I watched the NBA All-Star game on Sunday night. Go West!

That's about it! Like I said, very low-key and just the break I needed after a busy Valentine's weekend. How was your weekend?

Best of the Week

I come across countless things on the internet that I want to share - whether it be a DIY arts & crafts project, a new dinner recipe (more than likely a dessert, though!), a blog (or post) that inspires me, celebrity gossip, a unique etsy find, and the list goes on and on...I thought I'd highlight things I find throughout the week in one post that will happen every Friday.

Best of the Week
February 14-18, 2011

Brownie Covered Oreos - Yes, please! I saw this on Joy's blog but the recipe comes from Lelan over at Hello, Good Gravy!...doesn't it look to-die-for?! It's the simplest to do - dunk oreos in brownie batter (from a box mix) and bake in cupcake tins. I made these Wednesday night and they were so delicious! And dangerous! I had to take the leftovers to work :)

Lyndsey, over at Yellow Brick Blog posted about Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips (and so did penny lane recently). You can see a tutorial on Amber's Notebook (link here). I am a disaster when it comes to doing my own nails, but I'm eager to give this new method a try this weekend. More detailed instructions and tips can be found here.

I've become slightly enamored with Kate Walsh. I recently started watching Private Practice again, and I just love her! She has a new fragrance called Boyfriend, and it sounds very interesting. I usually don't buy into "celebrity fragrances" but this one has some great reviews already. Kate even did a phone interview with fellow blogger, A Blonde Ambition (read here)!

I recently decided to turn my blog into a book (well, at least my posts from 2010)! I used the services of Blurb, and it was a relatively easy experience. I was able to edit, format, and make my book exactly how I wanted it. The cost to have it printed was very reasonable as well. I'm excited to have a book featuring my blog posts and I know it's something I will cherish forever.

PS - I used the code "NEWBLURB" for 20% off my order!

What's on your "best of the week" list?

- not sure why it's posting so small.)

I have this Forever 21 scarf, and have received numerous compliments when I wear it. The price is amazing, and there are other color options available!

You can also see Ruche's version here. It's a lovely pink color, which F21 doesn't offer. Other than that, the two scarves are very similar! And while $23 is in no way breaking the bank, you could get all four F21 colors for the same price :)

Jumping on the Fit Train - Week 7

I'm late getting this posted, but I didn't have a chance to watch Biggest Loser until last night.

Biggest Loser
I was glad to finally see Arthur lose a substantial amount of weight. He definitely had something to prove after he betrayed his team by trading Jen/Jay for Deni/Sarah and basically making both of those teams scapegoats when elimination came around.

My least favorite player is quickly becoming Justin. He has such an attitude of "if someone doesn't lose more than 10 pounds, they're obviously not working hard enough" and "we're a family, jen and jay have to go first." Hello, it's a competition! Yes, you've grown close with your team, but don't you realize that pretty soon your "family dynamic" is going to have to go away and you will have to COMPETE with them! And then he's all like, "I'm the leader and I have to put up a big number" but he only lost 5 pounds!

I really prefer the black team (the originals) over the red team (the unknowns). I just realized last night that there are only two men on the black team, and they've still beaten the red team in every single weigh-in. Granted, last night they definitely wouldn't have won without Arthur's 20 pound weight loss.

Well folks, San Francisco was not very kind to me. The food was too delicious to pass up, and there wasn't enough opportunity to get in the necessary gym time to combat the calories. That's not to say I didn't go to the gym, but it was definitely nothing like my normal workout routine.

But, I'm not looking at it as a failure. I was glad to enjoy myself and while I ate more badly than usual, I was still conscious of what I was putting in my body. I could definitely feel the difference too, even after 24 hours.

Now that we're back, I'm getting back into the gym routine and tracking my calorie intake. Hopefully by my next fit train post, I'll be back on track!

Weekend Recap (aka the one where i talk about beer)

We packed a ton into our short weekend getaway. Most of our pictures are on the regular camera so I've yet to download them, but I thought I'd share a few that I took on my iPhone.

After we checked into our hotel on Friday night, we drove to the city for dinner. I had read about Frjtz on another blog, and knew I had to try it (hello, french fries are my favorite food on earth). The food was delicious!

The reason we ventured to San Francisco was for the Double IPA Festival, an event during SF's beer week. This is C's favorite style of beer and the festival offered 57 different varieties from a number of brewers. I know most of you don't care about beer, and I wouldn't either, but C enjoys it so it has become part of my life.

The weather could not have been more perfect on Saturday. Seriously, it was in the 70's and sunny all day. That's pretty miraculous for San Francisco (we experienced rain the following two days).

Here's what I have to say about the festival - C enjoyed himself :) After 20+ tasters of various DIPA's (with abv's ranging from 8-11%) I'm pretty sure he can't remember how we got back to the hotel! I actually had a lot of fun this year as well because they had a new feature - The Fabulous Frickle Brothers - makers of the most delicious fried pickle I've ever tasted!

On Sunday, we went back to the city to the Ferry Building as well as Ghirardelli Square (for my Kara's Cupcakes fix). The Ferry Building is this really neat indoor market with unique vendors. My favorites were Chris Cossentino's Boccalone and the super sweet bakery, Miette.

l - r: passionfruit, banana caramel, carrot, ghirardelli choc

We continued the "beer" theme by heading to Petaluma to check out Lagunitas and then on to Santa Rosa for Third Street Aleworks and Russian River Brewing.

Russian River is well known for brewing the elusive Pliny the Younger. It comes out once a year, and very few people actually get to try it as it isn't bottled. You have to go to the brewery or be lucky enough to be at a bar/restaurant that got a keg of it. As for C, he has had it two years in a row at the DIPA Festival and on tap from The Bistro and Toronado.

All in all it was a fabulous weekend!

Also, thank you to everyone who entered my giveaway. I really love all the connections and friendships I've made from the blogging community, and I wanted to do a giveaway to show you all how much you mean to me! I put all the entries into's list randomizer then generated a random number (57 total entries). The winner is Cheryl E.

Cheryl, if you could send me your choice of prize plus a shipping address, I'll get your winnings to you soon (email sweetteadiaries @; 48 hours to contact me before a new winner is chosen)! Thanks again to everyone who entered.

valentine's eve

Not that I really mean to get all "sappy" on you guys, but I really wanted to share this!

A couple of years ago, I was really into listening to the band Bright Eyes. But then I forgot about them because my iPod was lost and my laptop with my old iTunes died so all my music was lost.

A couple of days ago, blogger ACH from Making Stuff & Doing Things posted one of my favorite songs by Bright Eyes. Of course I stopped everything I was doing, and listened to it and loved it just as much as I used to.

So I thought I'd share the song and lyrics with you today, on Valentine's Eve, because I think it's a really great love song.

This is the first day of my life
Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours was the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
I don't know where I am, I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go

So I thought I'd let you know
That these things take forever, I am especially slow
But I realized I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

And you said,
"This is the first day of my life.
Glad I didn't die before I met you.
Now I don't care, I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy."

So if you want to be with me
With these things there's no telling,
We'll just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery

Besides, maybe this time is different
I mean, I really think you like me

flying high

There's something about the weekend that makes me carefree and happy!

When you were a kid, didn't you love balloons? I liked to hold on to them for as long as possible, and then I'd just decide to let it go, free to float around the big blue sky. That's how I feel on Friday when 6 pm rolls around...I forget all my worries and am free to do whatever I want for 2 whole days! Glorious!

[ALL pics via weheartit]

Have a wonderful weekend friends!

I'll see you back here next week with a Weekend Recap, a new award to share, and a long overdue giveaway! I'll leave the giveaway a surprise until then, but I promise it's good! In fact, if you leave a comment on this post I'll give you an extra entry!

Jumping on the Fit Train - Week 6

a day late, but here goes...

Biggest Loser
Ugh, Arthur kills me.

I was very happy to see Q go.

These people need to realize that 9, 10, 11 pounds is A LOT of weight for one week. They should be grateful to be losing instead of upset that they didn't lose more.

I really like the new trainer Kara, and I think it's funny how the editing made it look like Jillian was "talking smack" to/about her.

I said it above, but Arthur is a moron. He is doing anything he can to stay there without putting in the effort. It is SAD that he lost only 9 pounds in a week because he weighs 435! I think Moses was in his weight range and he lost 100 5 weeks! The girls on the black team all lost 11, 14, 16 pounds and they're literally half of Arthur's size. He needs to shut his mouth and start working or he will be the next to go.

My favorite contestants are Courtney, Jenn, and Moses.

I'm hanging in there! I weighed in on Sunday and had lost an additional pound so I have lost a total of 3.5 pounds in 16 days. My goals is 2 pounds per week so I'm pretty much on track. Instead of pounds lost, I'm more focused on how my body is changing in terms of what exercise is doing for me. I generally do 45 to 90 minutes of cardio a day, including weekends, and I feel like my legs are really changing. My thighs are firming up, my muscles are more visible, and I just feel stronger. I also do several weight stations for my arms (which I have always hated, they look so flabby) and I'm beginning to get a little tricep muscle! I want to have toned arms for summer when I'm wearing tank tops. Lastly, I make a stop at the ab cruncher. My tummy area is where I gain weight, which is actually very dangerous for women. I think my core is getting stronger. I'm pretty sure I'll never have a six pack, which is fine, I just want to flatten that area out as much as I can.

This weekend is going to be tough because C and I are going out of town. We have vowed to use the fitness area at the hotel every morning though. Plus, we will be doing a lot of walking/sight seeing so I'm hoping that helps some.

Cute Valentine's Day Treats

Valentine's Day is fast approaching! Will you be doing anything special?

I like to make treats for my co-workers, but I'm not sure I'll have the time this year. Just in case I do, I thought I'd at least get together some ideas and share them with all of you!

Putting chocolate in heart shaped pie crust pockets?
Yes, please! This sounds too cute!

This recipe seems very easy, no need for a
candy thermometer here. Sign me up!

Love 'em or hate 'em, Sprinkles revolutionized
the cupcake world as we know it.

I made these for Valentine's Day in 2009,
the link will refer you to my post with the recipe.

I think you'd have to pretty ambitious to make this,
but it sure looks delicious!

Share your sweet Valentine's Day treat ideas with me!

Have fun baking!

Road Trip...


We went last year, and had such a good time
that we had to plan another trip!

Last year, we did EVERYTHING!

Walked across the GG Bridge (which I really can't recommend because it is super scary).

Drove to Santa Rosa and watched the Super Bowl at Russian River.

Got trapped in Muir Woods during a rain storm.

Got hot chocolate from Ghirardelli.

Perused the cutest gift shop at Crown & Crumpet.

Rode around on a cable car!!! Super fun!

Ate in Chinatown and had deep fried salt and pepper crab
(recommended by none other than my hero, Anthony Bourdain).

Had awesome sausages at Rosamunde Sausage Grill and beer at Toronado.

Since we did/saw a lot last year, we're trying to
figure out how to best spend our time this year.

To Do List for 2011 Includes:

Dinner at Frjtz (which I knew I wanted to go to the instant I saw it on Holly's blog)

Back to Kara's for more cupcakes...they are delicious!

Get a maple glazed bacon apple donut from Dynamo Donuts.

Ride the cable car again!!

I'm so excited for this's fun to live in California
because there is always someplace to visit!

Now, I'd love to get any suggestions from my readers
that know S.F. better than me!

Please feel free to leave me a comment with
your recommendations!!!

I'll be forever grateful :)

Product Review - Egg Cooker

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I would be doing a product review for CSN Stores. I finally decided on what to get - there are really thousands of options so narrowing it down was pretty difficult! I went with the Cuisinart Stainless Steel Egg Cooker, and I was not disappointed!

Ordering through CSN Stores was very easy, and I received an e-mail almost immediately confirming my order. I was so surprised to receive another e-mail only a few hours later letting me know that my order was being shipped! That's fast, folks!

I've always wanted an egg cooker!

This particular model came with a very detailed instruction booklet and using the egg cooker couldn't have been easier. I decided to make soft boiled eggs and serve them over toast.

The eggs turned out really delicious. Thanks to my new egg cooker, I have a quick and easy breakfast to add to my rotation. I'll be sure to share other ways I use it - next up on my list is poached eggs!

Does anyone know how to easily peel a soft-boiled egg? I was having a really hard time getting the shell off the eggs without breaking it because they're so delicate. Any tips would be helpful!

Two thumbs up for this egg cooker and a big thank you to CSN Stores for making the online shopping experience a pleasure!
