Sunday update

Just a quick update...

I have been down all day. This is not normal. Usually going out and grocery shopping etc takes my mind off of things. Not so today.

I'll just quickly run over the highlights.

I got another BOOK!!! One of my all time favorite funny/memoir/girly non-fiction author's Jen Lancaster (if you haven't read her previous books or checked out her blog then GET ON IT NOW!).

I'm interested to read this, as it has gotten mixed reviews. I LOVED her last books, especially BITTER IS THE NEW BLACK and SUCH A PRETTY FAT.

I also MAJORLY scored on Mushrooms! I am a little embarrassed to post all the picture here. We went to 2 Safeway's- requested FRESH mushrooms every time. I ended up leaving with 4 FOUR HUGE FILLED BAGS! They were HUGE! I don't know WHY I didn't take a picture when of the 3 huge crates the guy brought us! I think I was too excited! They were hand size. You can see my friend holding my 3rd bag while I took the picture and continued to fill each bag to the top. Bursting at the seams:

This is ONE of the FOUR bags...also the SMALLEST bag....

I also found a 3 pack of the Stride Mystery Gum finally!

I lucked out on some cheap glass bowls! I got both for $1.77! score:
Last stop of the day was Community Natural Foods (as always) where I got my 2 fave mustard's:
Can you spot them? Top shelf 3 product from the left (green label) and the shelf right under it, 2nd mustard from left (beside the yellow squeeze bottle). My head has been pounding and I just wanted to go HOME!
The second I opened the apartment building back door I noticed the fire alarm was off, and walked full on into the lobby full of hot fire man. Luckily, they were really quick! I feel bad for all the people that couldn't get on the elevator because my little red (borrowed) pull cart took up a lot of room! I am currently munching on Bell Peppers dipped in Honey Mustard (mustard with sweet and low) . I have had dinner, my pack of GG Scandinavian Bran Crispbread with Pgx Granules, microwaved into a Fiber Mess and my Protishake Ice cream.


  1. Holy massive mushrooms! What are you going to do with all of them?

  2. I have never seen that many mushrooms before. What are you planning to cook up?

    I'm sorry you had an off day!! Jen Lancaster is the perfect pick-me-up though. I loved Bitter is the New Black but for some reason her other books didn't hold the same humor for me??

    And thank you for your very kind words! Honestly, I am always so amazed and how generous people are with their compliments on my blog. Your words do wonders for my low self-confidence.

    I hope you have a better day today, and a fantastic week!
