Weekend Re-cap

by Chelcie on January 15, 2012

Hello friends

How was everyone’s weekend?

So I’ve decided that aside from Trader Joes, Costco may be my second favorite place on earth, or just second favorite grocery store..favorite place on earth would be some place tropical..take me to a beach NOW, please and thank you

Molly and I went on Friday to stock up on some toiletries, and somehow managed to put way too many items in our cart..WOOPS

Here’s what we got

Pretzels..these may or may not have been my breakfast yesterday morning..or maybe my lunch because I woke up at 12..

frozen berries, and enough chicken to feed a family of 19 people..don’t worry its just Molly and I living here right now

grapes and grape tomatoes

These were by far the highlight purchases..I almost passed out when I saw that the whole almond butter jar was only 5.99!! Normally a small jar of that stuff is like 9 bucks..And the salsa was a free sample impulse buy..p.s. costco samples=awesomeness

We also got other things like toilet paper, cascade, water bottles, diet snapple, etc…and it took us about 3 trips to carry all of the stuff up to our apartment

I do have to show you what I did with the bunch of bananas I bought though

Sliced up, and put in the freezer for smoothie making!

Onto yesterday..As I told you before I woke up at 12..but only because I didn’t go to bed until 4am the night morning before

And it was just a, um, off day if you will. I met my friend for lunch at panera, and was planning on doing my bodyrock work out but that just didn’t happen

Instead I went to go see the Decendents with my friends..It was my second time seeing it, and I think I liked it better the second time!

George Clooney:)

After the movie we came back and ate dins

A morningstar veggie burger with salad..I filled up my salad plate a couple more times obvs

After dinner we watched the Pats game..(PATS WON YAY)…I’m kind of a poser but I still have to root for my home team:)

And then we went out to my friends party

Group shot..all the pictures taken last night make me realize how pale I am..ugh.

And finally for breakfast this morning I made myself a delicious egg mcmuffin

Egg whites with goat cheese and raspberry jam, sounds weird, tastes delicious

So, that was my weekend in a nutshell

The only thing on the agenda for today is Bodyrock, which unlike yesterday WILL happen

Happy Sunday!


Question for ya!: What did you do for fun this weekend?

I have a secret…. I have never been to Costco but I’m thinking I should probably check it out soon!

That’s the cheapest nut butter for such a big jar!! Ah I need to go there. I’ve never been!

I love costco as well! i love buying in bulk because you save so much more money that way. I wish there was one near my school.

I do the same thing with my bananas. I would buy them and chop them up but I divide them into individual bags beside all in one bag.

I dream of the day that my body lets me sleep in until 12 :(

Costco is by far my favorite store! Isn’t that such a good deal for the almond butter? It’s so cheap that it’s actually cheaper for me to buy the jar than make it myself. I love it :)

So cheap!! Hopefully the jar will last me more then a couple weeks! Doubtful though

I LOVE samples. The best is going to Whole Foods during the holidays when they’re sampling all of their holiday stuff…yummmm.
