Friday came right up like a speed demon this week, huh? Wow! I don’t even feel like I did much of anything to warrant my days to fly right on by. Not complaining. Not one bit. Besides, Scenes from the Week day is always a good time.
Even though I found myself posting a bit more frequently this week to include a more personal touch to my blogging again (hope you liked it!), I still have quite a bit that got left off the blog throughout the week. That’s what this post is for – to catch up on the little details of life.
I used to hate hate hate grocery shopping. Seriously. Hate. Then, I started doing my weekly shopping at Trader Joe’s instead of just using it as a fun trip every now and again. Turns out, I DO like to grocery shop! Only when it’s in such a stress free environment that includes little details like free samples.
I got to try this Cranberry Chevre cheese this past week. I now officially know what to bring to the potluck brunch I have coming up in a few weeks. Added bonus, I have saved some money on groceries (although we will ignore that it’s probably cancelled out in gas for the slightly further drive). Whatever. I’m just happy that it’s not such a pain to achieve this anymore!
Which, in turn, leads to things like this…
English muffin with almond butter and pumpkin butter (gotta love TJs!)
quinoa loaded up with apple chicken sausage, roasted brussels, butternut squash, and ginger chutney
Other good parts of the week included witnessing a lot of God’s beauty.
I also had to go on a drive for a particular errand this week that took me a bit north. The leaves were full on bright reds, oranges, and yellows and I wished I could just stare the whole way instead of doing that whole eyes on the road while driving thing.
Let’s see? What else have I been up to this week? Running…
And also getting a trigger point massage to hopefully keep my muscles ready to run.
And getting fun packages in the mail.
Last week New York & Company had some sort of crazy sale – 40% all purchases and BOGO 50% deal for pants and then a $15 off coupon. I don’t know how or why, I just know I took advantage to nab 2 new washes in my favorite jean leggings for a steal. Think I should wear my new FitFluential ViewSport tank with them? Don’t put it past me. You know I have little fashion sense. Besides, the tank is CUTE.
Lastly, since no Scenes from the Week post is complete without a little kiddo cuteness…
Dining on their daily bowl of oatmeal! PS – I think I’ve created a monster. Or better put – a monkey. I can’t get that girl out of that thing when we’re at home. At least it’s warm and cozy, so I let her have at it.
Well, that’s all for now! See you later for The Weekend Counts – motivational quotes/thoughts to carry you through the weekend!
Your Turn – If you have kids, do they live in their costumes post Halloween too? When’s the last time you got a massage? What do you enjoy about grocery shopping?
