Will you Keep My Banana? Giveaway!

Hi everyone! As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I have an exciting giveaway for you guys! 😀 I’ll post all of the details at the bottom of the post, but before you scroll down there, read on about my Friday night dinner out with my girlfriends!

After all of the excitement of my first 10K, I forgot to put up a post about the awesome dinner and time that I had with my girlfriends at a wonderful restaurant called, Biaggi’s!

Friday night we celebrated a friend’s birthday dinner at my favorite restaurant here in town. I looove this place. They have really great food and drinks:)I had a glass of Pinot before dinner:

And sampled a piece of that bread you probably spy in the back. ;-)Then for my entree, I had Butternut Squash Ravioli with Walnuts:

Looks and sounds awesome, right? Well, it probably would have been a favorite if they didn’t drown it in butter. It was one of those dishes where you could literally smell the butter. I was a bit put off by that, but ate most of it anyway. The actual ravioli were amaazing. Such a creative idea for fall!

After we all finished, we all split their famous white chocolate bread pudding for dessert – sooo yum.

And they gave the birthday girl their signature ice cream (spumonti) and it came out with a candle in it – so cute!

It was so nice getting together with everyone. A couple of them live out of town, so it’s harder to see them often. Everyone had a blast!

Ok, now for the guts of the post – the Giveaway!!!

There were so many positive comments on my post the other day about my Tupperware banana keeper , I knew I just had to do a giveaway for one! Thanks to RAN mom and sister-in-law for donating one (SIL is a Tupperware consultant) to Running Around Normal so I could share! 🙂

This little container is really cool:

  • It allows you to take a banana with you, without getting squished in your purse or lunch box
  • It keeps it fresher longer
  • It’s SO cute 🙂

And the winner of the Banana Keeper won’t find their banana keeper empty:

I’m including two random flavors of Lara Bars in the keeper. See, it can keep more than just bananas! haha

The rules:
The contest is only open to US residents. I’ll pick a winner on Thursday night!

  • Just leave a comment on this post telling me one thing you LOVE about yourself. That’s it!
  • Or if you’re not on Twitter, you can just linkback to this post in one of your posts. But make sure to leave another comment on here, so I can count your extra entry.
