Mama Samaan, you are on a roll!
Thanks for being up for the Challenge!

Remember, there are prizes to be won!!!

Anyway, now a segment I like to call, My Weekend.  
When I got home from work on Friday, the boyfriend surprised me with a gift. (I guess he's playing the Green Week Challenges too...)
AND, it's eco-friendly! The label says to.
Yup, I'm sportin' the new gear. And according to the backpack's label, the Eco-Friendly Hang Tag Program has their tags made with 100% post consumer recycled paper and printed with soy based ink.
Stats include:
4,068 Trees saved
756,902 Gallons of water saved
3,476 energy units saved
North Face, thank you for doing your part!

And Sunday I got to use my new backpack!
Have I ever mentioned there is amazing hiking in the South Bay area of California?
No? Well, there is!
Boyfriend at the top of a repelling rock... people were actually out there rock climbing!
It was pretty cool... I'm going to need to try that some day!
Lazy boy.

This weekend, we also found a really cool bug that I just had to post.
We saved it and returned it to Mother Earth.
Super metallic and shiny. The pictures do it no justice!

Well, that was my weekend, in a nutshell... Eats will be posted later...
Mmmmm. Mmmmm.
Can we say, 'Basil Kreme Fig Moon Pie'?

I can say Basil Kreme Fig Moon Pie, but I can't taste it...

That, my dear, is a wood boring beetle. Unfortunately a pest and a common infester of lumber. The beetle thanks you. The lumber industry? Not so much. :D
