What’s In My Grocery Bag

Hi friends. I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was pretty fantastic. We celebrated two of our very good friends getting engaged and I spend some QT with my dad.

I’ve been a little behind with blogging lately. Between work, my longer commute, and getting ready for my last weekend of yoga teacher training it’s been more and more difficult to fit it in. But no more excuses, while I sit in 75 minutes of traffic why not write a post (using voice memos)?

I thought I would share what was in my grocery bag this week. A lot of people, especially those trying out Paleo for the first time, will ask what I buy on a weekly basis.

Before Andy and I moved in together I usually could keep my grocery bill to about $60. Now that two of us have to get fed, one being a caveman with a very large appetite, our bill has about doubled. With that said, we still keep it pretty simple.

Summer Cobb Salad

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. My weekend was a good one especially because it officially feels like summer. This was the first weekend that I really got to enjoy our new house and relaxing out on our beautiful deck.

It was filled with relaxing, yoga, catching up with friends, and enjoying time with family. Sunday was gorgeous out. When we went grocery shopping at Whole Foods I saw these beautiful sunflowers and just had to get them. I’ve never been much of a flower person or plant person but I think that might change living in a house now. I put the sunflowers in the mason jar that I got at Goodwill (for only two dollars). I put them on our table outside and they look so pretty! These made me really happy…sometimes it’s just the little things!

After doing a ton of grilling all weekend and pretty much always, I decided to change it up for dinner last night. I wanted a light, summery salad but still one that was filling. So was born this summer cob salad.

A Social Media Confession

photo (12)

I’ve always been enamored by social media. I was one of the first of my friends to get a MySpace profile. I remember finding the brightest and flashiest images to splatter all over my page. When Facebook started I couldn’t wait to be able to create a profile. I actually remember it being the first thing I did as soon as I got my college email address. Facebook documented my entire college career (or should I say party). I was one of those girls who had 50 photo albums and thousands of pictures. Once I graduated from college the Facebook posting continued but a new love affair also started. This love affair was with Instagram. Instagram took my documentation from Facebook and made it more creative, more appealing, I guess you can say prettier.

If you look at my current Instagram feed you will find pictures of beautiful sunsets, mouth watering food, and perfect yoga poses.

What you won’t find are pictures of my messy bedroom that still is unpacked, my dinner I threw together because I got home at 10pm, or me falling out of a hand stand because I can only hold it for one┬ásecond or less. Yes that’s right. I still have not nailed a solid handstand away from the wall.

Why am I telling you this? Continue reading
