Hey guys! Today is my favorite day, and not just because it’s Thursday, which is the day before Friday, which [usually] leads to Saturday. It’s because I get to babble on and on about whatever the heck I want. Thanks to Amanda for that one!
1. It’s been a busy week, which is how I like it. I’ve made a dent or two in some work-related projects, took a Zumba class on a Monday (always a good way to get the week rolling!), and didn’t procrastinate much, which is a rare and very unusual phenomenon for me.
2. Yesterday, I made a very important pilgrimage. It was to Trader Joes, which we hit up only occasionally because it’s all the way across town. TJ’s is the bomb because it has all those amazing snacks that you thought existed only in your own head. They dip EVERYTHING in chocolate. So, naturally, we invested.
Haven’t tried the two bars yet, but the chocolate covered berries are ah-mazing.
3. We also got this:
I haven’t given coconut oil a try yet, mostly because of the saturated fat controversy. Alas, the benefits of it do sound very intriguing. For those of you who use it and love it (and hate it), I’d love to see what your thoughts are! I read that it’s very important to buy it extra virgin, but we got just “virgin”…did we get the wrong one?
4. You know that cruise that’s in the news right now because over 600 people got sick? My boyfriend and I were on that very ship, taking that very route, last May. It’s such a shame that all those people’s vacations were ruined by a bug because it was an amazing getaway!
5. A few months ago, one of our friends took a few of his close buddies out to a nice dinner because he had finally gotten his dream job. He told us that in some Asian cultures, this is something people do when something good happens to them as a way to pass their good fortune to others. It was such a great dinner and I felt guilty eating all that food on someone else’s dollar! But the idea did resonate with me and after getting a promotion at work, my boyfriend will be doing the same thing for some of his close friends this Friday. Sharing the love! I’m looking forward to a time when I can do that for the people close to me as well!
Tis’ all for me today folks! Have a happy Thursday and we’ll see ya tomorrow!
