colorful shopping trip








Our latest trip to the market looked like this. You can see the cheese puffs bag had been opened in the car, someone could not wait until he got home. I didn't realize how color coordinated I was until I got home. Yellows & oranges, purple & greens and blue and whites. The mini cream puff was too pretty not to have its own little plate.

Now to do some cooking...
I find that I am more likely to eat lots of vegetables if they're colorful, the cauliflower for example.

Or locate me to your choice of clothing sites :) Where I live in Arizona, you don't find much cute/modern clothing. Thanks for your help.

    1. Hi Andi,

      We shop all around for him. The Gap, Old Navy & Zara are the most common places. A few things from H&M when we can get them too.
      Hope that helps!

    1. I've been using them up individually. I roasted the cauliflower tonight with some garlic, olive oil, lemon juice & parmesan cheese.
      I cut up the Chimoya & put it in a big bowl of fruit & ate them all raw.
      The little chocolate chips & put over the yogurt with agave nectar.

      That's all I've done so far though!

  20. I am addicted to those Enjoy Life chocolate chips. I use them in muffins, cookies, banana bread. I had to hide them from my daughter though. She keeps eating them out of the bag. Looks like we like the same brands as you. I just posted some similar purchases on my blog at http://womaninreallife.blogspot.ca/2012/03/grocery-list-part-one.html
