Hola! Back from the weekend.

Welcome to Monday! We spent a lovely weekend in Charleston for mi madre’s bday. Here’s me in the car happy from shopping and Whole Foods!! I miss Charleston after leaving home 2 years ago. Yes, I chopped off my hair right before I did my 10K.


Here are the goodies from Whole Foods! I went a little crazy because there isn’t one in Columbia and I haven’t been in awhile. Soy Milk, Bunch of bars , little organic potatoes, ground flax seeds, Black bean hummus, shredded coconut, almond butter, applesauce, peanut sauce, organic hoisin sauce, 3 yellow mangos, and green chiles. Not pictured are frozen bags of fruits in the freezer and edamame. Whew!!


I also went to my favorite store JCREW!!! Jeans, shorts (purple with horses?) and a light sweater. I’m always cold! That’s Chip stepping in the picture.


Can’t forget to mention my New shoes!! I’ve been drooling over these shoes for over a year!


Today after work I went to Publix and picked up a few things for dinner this week. I made a menu for the week because we’re trying not to eat out except for Thursday. We are looking at a house with the parents. We have something special planned this weekend. 🙂 Here’s what I made tonight.

Dinner 1

Mini organic potatoes baked at 400 then 450 with olive oil, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper. Corn on the cob, a few broccoli pieces (microwaved), and shrimp. Yum! This is for me of course.


Dinner 2

Annie’s mac and cheese made with water (ran out of milk), corn cut of the cob, and steak. This is for the boyfriend.


The only connecting item is the corn! haha…. It’s so hard sometimes. It’s the things you do for love!!


I leave you tonight with a picture of my darling son. He’s too cute!!! Good Night everyone!!
