Trader Joe’s are popping up in Austin. Linds & I have never been to one, ever. It was grocery time so, we decided to change that! Here’s a mini review of what we thought!
While this location was pretty small, it did have the basics for a grocery trip. The food was reasonably priced, lots of organic choices and healthy options. Also it had a nice wine section. “We built TJ’s on wine first, then food…” While the store was pretty congested, the lines moved fairly quickly. They had free samples in the back, including some pumpkin spice coffee, yum! We did have to stop at another store to pick up a few things they didn’t carry. Overall, it was a pretty cool place & we’ll probably visit it again. Just not on a weekend! Ha-ha.
Kelly introduced me to the idea of cooking for an entire month and freezing everything. My mind was seriously blown! I had thought of cooking a week in advance but an entire month?! Brilliant. I always have the issue of produce going bad because I don’t eat it in time and so this idea seemed perfect to me. Not to mention how unhealthy I eat sometimes just simply because I need the convenience of something quick. Here’s some images from our cooking/shopping day. At the end of the month, I’ll write a blog about how it went!
Our first time getting an airbrush tan! As a redhead, I have never done this before because I was terrified that I would end up orange and blotchy! Watch the video to see how we liked it!
You’ll hear me say this a lot. Life is all about laughter.
It bears repeating.
LIFE IS ALL ABOUT LAUGHTER. (and love. Laughter and Love)
I really shouldn’t have to explain this. Sure, life has it’s down side. You’ll experience tears, pain, and even apathy. But really, that’s not what life is.
The moments in between the laughter will more than likely be forgotten. You’ll remember the circumstance surrounding the tears of course. Like a heartbreak, death of a loved one, physical pain. But the tears, pain, and apathy itself? More than likely, you’ll forget how bad it really was. They say time heals all wounds, right?
But the moments when you’re IN the laughter? Those will be unforgettable. That will be when you connect with loved ones. That will be when you feel life is the best thing ever. That will be when you feel like you are truly experiencing life and living it to it’s fullest.
Breathe. Live. Love. Create.
