Our weekend couldn’t have been more uneventful. I mean, we had fun and had some friends over on Saturday night and cooked fajitas, but that doesn’t really translate to great blog material.
I think, truth be told, that we were all recovering from our first week back in the real world and needed some time to just relax. Caroline and I both stayed in our pajamas almost all day on Saturday and Sunday and it was delightful.
On Friday night we met my sister and her family and Mimi and Bops for Mexican food. And at some point around ten-thirty that night I started feeling like I was coming down with some sort of stomach bug. So I crawled in bed and did my best not to move or think about food for the next twelve hours. And I had a real low moment when Caroline decided to snack on roasted seaweed while sitting right next to me.
As it turns out, I guess it was nothing but I still don’t feel quite right.
So since I clearly have nothing interesting to write about (if you doubt me, please re-read the above paragraph about my stomach bug that turned out to not be a stomach bug) and I’m trying to watch the Golden Globes before switching to Downton Abbey in about thirty minutes, I thought it might be a good day to ask y’all a question.
I finally went into our new Trader Joe’s on Friday. I’m not sure what took me so long but I think part of the reason is because the parking lot has been insanity every other time I’ve attempted to go. And I bought the honey mango shaving cream that my friend Paige raves about and a few different types of lotion because I am a sucker for a good moisturizer.
But I didn’t buy any food items. Frankly, I felt overwhelmed and unsure of myself.
So my question is this: What are some items from Trader Joe’s that you and your family enjoy? Any snacks I need to know about it? Cookies? Beauty products? Has anyone tried those lavender dryer bags because I was so tempted to buy them.
Please share your findings. And the next time the parking lot isn’t insane, I’m going to go try them for myself.
