Trip to TJ’s

Happy Sunday! It’s not really happy though because tomorrow is the start of the work week. Waa Waa Waaaah.

I had a nice little Sunday to myself. It was gorgeous out, so I went to the…mall! Pathetic, I know. But, I was in the mood to browse and I had a couple little things I needed anyways, so I headed out after taking care of a few things around the apartment.

I fueled up with a bowl of my million dollar Cheerios, some vanilla almond milk and walnuts. I’m so glad my almond milk supply is replenished!

I also grabbed an iced caramel coffee with skim en route to the mall.

I picked up a few things from Forever 21, including an olive tunic, and a linen navy shirt, and then I hit up my favorite place ever:

After finally finding the cardigan I’ve been looking for, I picked up some ramekins so I can make some more boatmeal and then I found wedges on sale. Like wayyyyyy on sale. Score! Spring shoppin’ done early!

TJ’s Loot

I wanted to show you guys some of the goods I nabbed on my TJ’s run yesterday!

The place was PACKED but I still grabbed a few goodies I’ve been eyeing for quite some time.

I’ve been getting a little grossed out by regular ‘ole hummus lately (weird), so I saw this little baby. Of course I tried it as soon as I got home and yes it’s as delicious as it sounds. It’s white beans, sun-dried tomatoes, soy sauce (?!) and other yummy things. I’m sold.

You can never have too much vanilla and Jessica says she would drink this stuff. I trust her.

Just because I need another jar of nut butter to add to my collection of 4,321. No, really I grabbed it to combine with the next two items:

Crans and ‘cots. I’m making a batch of protein bites, which you can see on the guest post I did for Courtney. The sweet Katie is hosting a bake sale, donating all of the proceeds to Japan, and I’m donating my protein bites. Be on the look out for this bake sale!

I’ve heard this stuff is delish, and I ezekial bread is sooo good for you, so why not? I am going to miss my beloved Thomas’s cinnamon raisin bagel things, though. :(

Lovvvee frozen berry mix! Cheaper than fresh and still great. Plus, there’s cherries in this bag. I forsee many a smoothie in my future.

My favorite fruit of all time, already cut for me. Score!

Oh, and if you’re in the mood for mac and cheese, which I always am, then get THIS:

It is not healthy. It is not homemade. But, it was delicious, and everything once in a blue moon, right?…errr…once a week. ;)  I ate this while watching House, which may or may not have been the best idea when there was a patient on the episode with burning flesh. I now have a food baby and the mental image of a burning hand, but I am happy.

Enjoy the end of your weekend, lovelies!
