Lunch On Us {a giveaway}

We are slowly getting into our groove with our new summer schedule. Weather cooperating most days we spend happily poolside, and we are enjoying every single minute of it! Please summer never end!!!

I've had to adjust my workout routine a little bit since both little ones are home and rarely does Cute nap. I usually workout before everyone gets up or waaaaaay after everyone is asleep. Even if it is 10:30p.m. I want to sneak at least a few minutes in.

One thing they have loved doing is accompanying me to barre class. The studio, located at The Avenue, provides child care while you are lifting, toning, and burning. They get to play with friends and then once finished they move on to what excites them even more - lunch.

Eating out is a special treat, and when given the choice, The Cutes' default choice is usually Chick-fil-a. However, when we leave barre class they get just as excited to see that Panera sign. I'm not sure if it is the yummy sandwiches, the green smoothies, or quite possibly the treat cases that entices them.


 I have a strong feeling it might be the treat cases.



Or maybe the giant delicious themed cookies they always have. How cute are these flip flop cookies?



I am not going to complain one bit. I love Panera, and feel that it is somewhat a healthier choice (as long as I don't get a cookie myself). The kids can get sides of apples and yogurt, and even drink a wide selection of organic milk and juices.





Apparently, on this particular day I was feeling like my post barre workout required a carb re-load. Talk about counter productive, but that tortellini is oh so yummy!



We love Panera so much that we decided to partner with our favorite team at The Avenue to giveaway a lunch on us. Enter below for a chance to win a $20 gift card to Panera Bread. Winner will be announced Friday, June 12th.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Now try not to spend it all on cookies once you get there!
