Am I the only person who keeps forgetting that it is April Fool’s Day? Anyways, there are no jokes in my post today..I promise. I’ve fallen for so many jokes today so I’m keeping it clean!
Chicago is officially booked! I’m extremely excited and our hotel (the Fairmont) looks amazing and conveniently located near virtually everything! I’m still taking suggestions for things to do if you all have any!
While I am not particularly stoked that it is almost Sunday evening, this week is looking to be fairly exciting (minus the whole work thing):
- Cheesecake Factory for dinner tonight!
- Opening day for the Pirates.
- Pirates and Phillies all weekend.
I’m pretty excited, I just hope the weather is nice.
Blogging and Food Obsessions:
Keeping theme with my last post about foodie penpals, is it just me or has blogging opened your eyes to a wide-variety of foods and snacks that I otherwise may have never known about. What are your thoughts on this? I feel like the more blogs I read, the longer my grocery store list gets!
My current obsessions include:
Peanut Butter and Company Dark Chocolate Dreams
Trader Joe’s Green Tea Mints
Trader Joe’s Blue Berry Cereal Bars.

This week has been my first week at my new job. Despite the fact that I’ve worked from home for half of the week, I’ll have to admit working a full 40 hour work week again is rather weird. The last time I’ve done it was July of 2010. I’ve been crazy-busy; especially since I am continuing to do some freelance work on the side. Needless to say, I am very, very excited that tomorrow is Friday!
With an ankle that is beginning to feel much better, I am thinking out my weekend plans as I search for something to eat for lunch — so far I haven’t been too successful in finding something that is catching my eye.
I’ve been living off of this, this week. I’m addicted!
I really need to hit up a grocery store and find some other tasty lunch foods!!
This weekend, a friend of mine and I are planning what we call our old lady shopping day. We go grocery shopping, eat dinner extremely early and get frozen yogurt. (sounds like an old lady day, doesn’t it?) Oh well, you’d think I was going on 80 instead of 27!!
This time we are heading to Trader Joe’s! I love this store, but seriously never know what to buy. That’s why I am turning to the blog.
What are your favorite Trader Joe’s products?

I feel like a kid in a candy store every time I walk into Trader Joe’s — this time the candy part is actually true though. Aside from meat and cheese, I bought all goodies! They have an awesome selection of Christmas treats! I never in a million years thought I would enjoy food shopping as much as I enjoy a trip to LOFT (speaking of LOFT, check out my cute new flats below!). Is this a sign I am getting old? Not too mention, I am unbelievably excited about my blender I know my parents purchased for me for Christmas! A trip to Trader Joe’s and lunch was just what I needed to break up the monotony of some of my work today. I freelance mainly in the health and fitness industries, but sometimes pick up extra projects in various fields (if the pay is right) and these projects have a tendency to bore me.
Lunch at W.G. Grinders was amazing. Plus it only cost .05 cents — for two sandwiches, two cookies and two drinks — because I had a Groupon I had purchased months ago and finally used it.
Here are some of my awesome finds! (now I should probably get back to work and then onto some freelance pitches and maybe a little cleaning)
- Chocolate Covered Pretzels
- Candy Cane Green Tea
- Brownie protein bars
