Greg's grandma whom we love so dearly is probably one of the coolest and hippest grandmas you will ever meet. She follows the latest "trends" on health foods, uses her cellphone like a pro (pretty much texts as fast as we do), is current on social media, and even takes cooking classes with grandpa to host the meanest parties! Anyway, being the thoughtful woman that she is, she gifted us with a generous WF gift card and I did most of our groceries there for 2 weeks. You see those beautiful oyster mushrooms? Yup. I spoiled the family with produce upon produce and those mushrooms went in a dish that I'm extremely excited to share with you on Monday. Well okay, the veggies were mostly for me but here I am sharing it with you all...so that counts for something, right?
This week I also tried Dragon fruit for the first time! As you already know--or at least I hope you know--I'm all about unbiased and honest opinions. Let's just say that dragon fruit is much more appealing to my eyes than to my taste buds. It's not terrible by any means, but I think it lacks flavor and doesn't give me the wow factor I always hope for. Maybe I just picked out the wrong one. Do you enjoy this pretty little fruit?
I also realized I forgot to share Selah's Halloween costume with you. Being the extreme holiday spirit-sucking leach I've become over the years, which by the way is a characteristic that has slowly but surely toned down, I totally procrastinated on Selah's costume. Her daddy wasn't ready to give up on the festivities and purchased this Rapunzel outfit. I'm a convert after seeing her as both Minnie Mouse last year, and now Rapunzel. I think Halloween has become one of my favorite times of the year, you guys! I mean, when else is the whole world (okay, just your neighborhood) flooding into your very own doorstep and in this case, your Trunk or Treat event where you get to share conversations, food, and most importantly, God's love? It's amazing how much connection happens during these events. :)
And here are some links I'm pretty sure you will enjoy!
Okay so...call me hippie wannabe, Kinfolk fanatic, bandwagon chaser...but if I were to be honest, those names don't bother me at all if only I could plant myself in a beautiful location and have a picnic like this with you all. Why oh why is this so dreamy?
I have a serious problem. I know, I know...it's definitely wrong to have a crush on someone other than your spouse, but perhaps it's just as bad to have a blogger crush like I'm experiencing at the moment. If there were one blogger/photographer/cook/writer I would want to be as an adult (wait...) out of the several that come to mind, Mandy would be it. I mean, look at this devilish bowl of Xi-An hot noodles!
A lot of people ask me where they can find these shoes I'm sporting on our date night--namely women in their 50s, hmm...but yes, nevertheless these are cute shoes! And in case you were wondering too, I purchased them from K-Styleme. Their variety just can't be beat.
Sometimes yoga can surprise you with not only its benefits, but by how much you end up loving a sequence the 2nd time around. Sun salutations are rather dreadful for me because they don't feel empowering nor refreshing to me. But I'm a believer now! Try this sun salutation cardio sequence if you want your upper body screaming for mercy. Phew.
