It has been approximately two months since I last participated in WIAW.
But I’m back.
Before we get back into it, I must confess
(that my loneliness is killing me now) : I have gone almost 24 years of life without ever going to a Trader Joes.
oh miley i miss your long locks, girlfran
Yup. Sad but true. There’s one right around the corner from my office, so on Monday I decided enough was enough and I was going to go to there (if you get the reference, points for you!) I walked in and thought I had somehow had made a wrong turn and wound up in Heaven.
Long story short, everything looked amazing and somewhat healthy. I bought 14 things (sorry roommates) and my total was 27 DOLLARS. TWENTY SEVEN DOLLARS. I gasped when the cashier told me. This place is MAGICAL, people. She thought I was about to be one of those customers who pitched a fit, but no. In my euphoria, I exclaimed a little too loudly “I’m coming here everyday, it’s so much fun!” She cautiously laughed, an old man in next line over chuckled, and the toddler with her mom behind me started looking around because clearly her mom hadn’t taken her to the playground that must be in this store, but I was not kidding at that moment. Although now I’m relenting, maybe not every day, maybe more like once a week once my lettuce goes bad.
ANYWAY. Here is the poorly photographed line-up from Tuesday. Thanks to the lovely Jenn for hosting this super-fun link-up.
Breakfast (7:40 AM):
Yogurt bowl: Chobani no-fat vanilla, strawberries (Trader Joes), pineapples (Trader Joes) and Fiber One chocolate squares (spotted, coveted and taken from Jessie’s WIAW last week, thanks girl!)
Morning snack (9:50 AM):
Pineapples (Trader Joes)
Salad: Lettuce (Trader Joes, new favorite lettuce), Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing (Trader Joes, hands down favorite salad dressing e-v-e-r), sliced walnuts and almonds, feta.
Afternoon snack (1:30):
Dinner (5:00 PM):
It can never be emphasized enough: I.love.Chipotle. I would eat it everyday. But I can’t and don’t. I realized the last time I had Chipotle was March 20 and that was an acceptable amount of time passed, so I got some for dinner to treat myself after a particularly stressful day at work. I felt like living on the edge so I decided that for the first time in the 5 years I’ve been lovin’ and eatin’ Chipotle, I’d try something new. I’d forgo my chicken and try the veggies option and see how I liked it.
Verdict handed down: Amazing. Delicious. Unbelievably good. I like when I try new things and find a new favorite.
ONE LAST THING before you’re free to move onto other, better WIAW’ers:
For what it is worth, after reading a day in the life posts like Grace’s, I have developed an obsession with them. I really love reading them. We do SO much in one day and nobody lives the exact same day twice or the same day as anyone else. It is crazy interesting to me and people lead fascinating lives. So I decided that, despite the fact that it might be SUPER boring, I’m going to post my own tomorrow.
Since I love these posts and I love blogs and reading blogs and I live a boring life I’m debating making it a day in the life post link-up. And by debating, I mean that even though I’m probably alone in my love for these kind of posts, and fully accept that not many people would do one of their own, I’ll probably do a link-up anyway. Just in case. Wink.
Think about it? If you’d written one before, you can link to it.
