Trader Joe’s Haul

Trader Joe’s Haul

This past Saturday morning, MT offered to stay home with Michael while I ran to Trader Joe’s.  This was an incredible blessing considering how Michael climbed into the back of the cart during our last trip and nearly scared the “you-know-what” out of me in the process. I was a woman on a mission and was in and out of the store in 15 minutes.  It would have been even faster, but I was chit-chatting with the friendly checkout person.  His best friend and college roommate apparently plays for the Carolina Panthers.  I...

Grocery Haul (new finds!)

Grocery Haul (new finds!)

I did a bit of damage at the grocery store on Saturday morning after realizing that our fridge was almost completely barren. The items that you’ll see below are from Harris Teeter (our local chain) and Target, but you can expect to see a Trader Joe’s haul next week (which I might even film). I haven’t been there in ages, so I’m pretty excited. This haul was pretty fun too because I picked up a couple of new (to me) things. Here’s what I bought…     Organic whole milk (I always make sure that...

Healthy eats from the past few weeks

Healthy eats from the past few weeks

A few weeks ago, I wrote that I planned to bring back my “Healthy eats” posts (and more healthy eating posts in general).  Oddly enough, I am starting today- on a day when I have a massive headache coupled with extreme nausea.  I’ve actually felt like this for several days now (hence the major lack of posts this week).  I have no idea if it’s a bug or the pregnancy, but the feeling has basically rendered me useless. But enough about all of that.   Here are some of my recent meals and snacks.  Hopefully,...

Snack time check-in & we’re snowed in!

Snack time check-in & we’re snowed in!

When you live in the south, snow days are obviously a pretty rare occurrence. A lot of the time, snow might be in the forecast, but it either never actually comes or it’s a really light dusting.  This time, we’re actually getting hit with it pretty hard, and the Governor told everyone to prepare to lose power once the ice hits. I grew up in New York where the power lines were underground, so power loss is not something that I’m used to at all.  I’ve been preparing food all day, washing dishes, doing laundry, filling...

Things I’m loving lately (February 2014)

Things I’m loving lately (February 2014)

Happy Thursday! My list of favorites has been growing lately, so I felt like it was time to share some of them with you (especially since I’m pretty sure that one of the things on my list is on sale right now).   Big Spender Nail Polish It is rare that I’ll apply the same polish for weeks in a row, but I’ve reapplied this color three times over in the past month and haven’t gotten remotely sick of it yet.  I think this is actually a perfect year-round color even though it was released in a fall...
