Technological issues & Trader Joe’s haul (9/26)

Happy Wednesday!

Clearly, things didn’t go as planned for me as far as getting this post up yesterday.

My blog has some sort of a funky issue going on behind-the-scenes which is why my header is currently missing.  It was really frustrating trying to get it resolved yesterday, and I had to just step away from it for a few hours.

[Update: Since I originally posted this, my amazing web developer Renee fixed my issues.  Check out her site, if you’re looking to re-do your blog.  Thanks again, Renee!]

Anyway, I’m back today (obviously), and I have some fun things to share with you.

For starters, here is this week’s Trader Joe’s haul.

(As always, you can see the other items that I purchased here as part of my weekly staples list.)

Guess what?

The Trader Joe’s fall specialty items are in stock!

I was so excited when I saw them.  I’m pretty sure that I screamed or gasped right there in the aisle, but when you’re pregnant, you can get away with that sort of thing without being questioned. 😉

  • Organic canned pumpkin
  • Pumpkin bread & muffin mix
  • Pumpkin butter (great on protein pancakes!)


  • Agave & maple syrup blend
  • Raisins (for homemade gluten-free granola bars for Michael)
  • Sunflower seeds (also for the granola bars)
  • Butternut squash

  • Udi’s gluten-free bread
  • Earth Balance butter
  • Mini veggie tray
  • Whole wheat tortilla wraps
  • Soft-baked Snickerdoodles
  • Plain Greek yogurt

As a distraction from all of my technological issues, I decided to put out some more fall decorations (and rearrange some existing ones).



I think that I am officially done with decorating (for now at least).  In fact, I’m trying to stop the nesting craziness and just relax for these next few weeks- but more on that tomorrow.

Has your Trader Joe’s put out their seasonal items yet?  If so, did you buy anything?  I think that I’m going to pick up some back-ups next week along with the pancake mix.  What can I say?  It’s an obsession. 

I hope that you have a great day!

  1. I have never had any of those pumpkin goodies from TJ’s but I did just buy their pumpkin Greek yogurt!

  2. I wish I had a TJ”s near me. The closest one is in Charlotte, which kind of negates the money I’d save shopping there- haha!

  3. I have got to head to Trader Joe’s! There’s not one close to my house but I will drive anywhere to get pumpkin goodies. YUM! And you fall decorations are beautiful!!
