a good weekend + a marshmallow giveaway

July 16, 2012 |  Category:   life the biz

Giveaway Update: Contest is closed! Thanks for all your sweet comments and entries, and congrats to Grace, Nuree and Lauren!


Sometimes you just have to abandon all plans of working through the weekend to just enjoy the weekend. I had all these notions of “catching up” since Mark was going to be around for the bulk of both days and the girls are out of camp next week, but I quickly ditched that plan in favor of family fun times. The weekend started with a sidewalk party with our neighbors on Friday night and ended with a fantastic last minute barbeque party with some old and new friends in the neighborhood. It’s summer after all, right? And I feel like everyone else is on summer time, clients included. Not a whole lot is getting done and nobody seems to be in a rush. That’s fine by me.


We actually did work a few hours each day by being part of Paper Magazine’s SuperDuper Market located inside Chelsea Market over the weekend. For some reason I tweeted and posted it on Facebook as well as our website, but forgot to write about it here, hmmm. So sorry! But thanks to all who came out to see us! People from out of town, especially. It’s really great to meet people and match faces to names of those who have bought cookies from us and commented on the blog for years. We really appreciate it!
As a small way of saying thanks, we’re going to give away 2 packages of marshmallows (we’ll pick the flavors) to 3 people. You have until tomorrow, Tuesday 9pm EST to leave a comment below and we’ll pick 3 random winners. Make sure you leave your email so that we can contact you. Good luck! (we can only ship to US readers, wah, so sorry!)

    I already know I love your marshmallows and am entering, even though i know that if i were to win, I’d be gifting my win to someone else in the states (which would also be awesome). But maybe I’d win a tea towel (which i’ve wanted) and i could gift and get. Yes, maybe. All things are worth a chance

    Oh Jenna! It was truly one of the highlights of our trip that I not only got to meet you but Mark & those adorable girls of yours as well! You are even sweeter in person (hard to believe!) and even more gorgeous than your pictures portray 🙂 Huge thanks for the recommendation on the Massaman Curry Peanut Butter cookies — holy cow! I’m not a huge peanut butter fan but those are truly AMAZING! You can let Mia know that my favorite is still hers – those Chocolate Early Grey cookies are SUPER hard to beat. I could eat them every day and not get tired of them. Needless to say, we quickly devoured those two packages. Thanks again for everything! I
