Excitement OVERLOAD

OH my. What a great day it has been. And I haven’t even gone on my run yet.

I started the day off at the DMV. *ominous music* While that was a horrible way to start a day, I figured it could only get better from there – and it did. I took care of my license issue [in retrospect, a non issue], and I wish I could show you all the photo of how HUGE my hair is. It’s seriously comical, my husband even commented “Ah yes, that was expected”. Lovely!

From there, kiddo and I went to Marlene’s Market & Deli. It’s a natural foods place that sells basically everything under the sun, and they have an amazing deli chock full of anything that might strike your fancy. These people are brilliant – having the smell of the deli wafting through out the store – you’re bound to grab grub while you’re there. I didn’t even go during a lunch hour and it was packed.

Anyway, I left with all these goodies, for just at $30.

salad dressing, the greek yogurt brand I will always buy, fresh almond butter, a bag of soy nuts, my late july obsession that i FINALLY found here, and bulk quinoa, amaranth, black beans and chia seeds.

First off, I about had a heart attack when I saw the greek yogurt. I don’t like Chobani [sorry], Yoplait’s greek yogurt, Dannon’s, Stonyfield- they just don’t do it for me. I’ve tried them all. So seeing this little container brought my little heart so much joy. Until I saw what was waiting for me in the snack aisle, and then saw the Late July cookies. HOLY COW. Seriously, my heart damn near exploded with happiness, I am not kidding. I know I’ve posted about them before, but can’t find the post…

Since I had stuffed my face at the deli, I also picked up some snack-ish items to save for later. Naturally, I didn’t want to wait, and wanted to devour them in the car, but I knew I had to take a pretty picture for you all…

Aaaah, kombucha. Nectar of the gods. Won't be going back for the cookie though...

As if all that exciment wasn’t enough, I even made a friend. Yes. In the fridge section no less. Literally, it’s a huge walk in refrigerator… Anyway, to regular civilian people, making a friend might not be a big deal. Let me kindly remind you that we move often, and since we’re new to the Army, we don’t really have much of a network. So, to make a friend, where you literally don’t know anyone around you, is a BIG deal. Anyway, I imagine we will be getting together soon, cruising around downtown Olympia and chillin’ on her landlord’s farm. I know right?! Awesome.

Details of the giveaway will be announced tomorrow morning, so stay tuned!

    1. Absolutely join me, please!!!!! You could be my guide for the millions of flour, grains, oats – I’m kind of flying blind!

      That greek yogurt has crack or something in it, I swear. If you ever hear of someone needing rehab for Greek Gods yogurt, pay no mind, I’ll be back shortly. 😛
