This weekend was AMAZING.
I was able to de-stress, relax, and get amped up mentally for O-Chem 2…oh and something freakin awesome happened on Saturday….
To celebrate being finished with o-chem 1, my parents decided that we should take the 1.5 hour drive over to Ft. Worth to check out the new Trader Joe’s (aka the first in Texas WOOOO!!!!!)
Needless to say, this child was STOKED with a huge capital S.
After going to one in San Francisco while we were on vacation back in May, I immediately became their #1 fan. I mean, all that fresh produce, nut butters up the wazoo, and random awesome items like cookie butter all for dirt cheap???? WHO COULD NOT BE A FAN?!?!
We arrived around 11 am and it was JAMMED. So many people! But everything still managed to be fresh, clean, and organized despite the crowds.
My mom and I got out our lists, my dad manned the cart, and we set out into the jungle of awesomeness. Here’s collage pics of SOME of the loot. We LOADED up since we figured we wouldn’t be back for a long time.
We got over 60 items and only spent like $160 for it all. The prices just had me gasping, I mean almond flour for $3, four avocados for $2, and four Mahi Mahi fillets for $8?! Ummmm YEAHHHH sorry Whole
Paycheck Foods, but you just don’t compare
We also got some rad stickers that I plopped on my workout log.
We have one coming in September about 15 minutes from my town, but I’ll be down in Corpus Christi when it opens BOOOOOOOO. My mom is just as obsessed with the store as me, so I have a feeling she’ll be going like every day haha I guess I’ll just have to stock up when I visit for Thanksgiving and Christmas
I’m still reeling from how cool it was– all of you guys out there who have them near you are SO lucky! I’d be in there 24/7!! I think it is safe to say that I have a new boyfriend and his name is Joe
What’s your favorite grocery store? What’s one essential you have to buy every time you go to the grocery?
If I get some free time in the midst of studying, I hope to be back to participate in What I Ate Wednesday! WOO!
**Also I keep trying to comment on your blogs, but I keep going to spam Any tips how to fix that?**
Hope you guys have a great start to your week!!!!
