Treat Yourself Tuesday – Grocery Store Therapy & Reality TV

Another week, another opportunity to link up with Becky’s ‘Treat Yourself Tuesday!’

Dan got his wisdom teeth out before the weekend, so let me tell you, things got pretty wild and crazy around here. I’m talking deep dish pizza and reruns of ‘New Girl’. We’re still in Season 1 on Netflix and every time I watch an episode, I wonder what took me so long to start watching. I hyena laugh at least 4 times per half hour.

On Sunday, we ventured out to Trader Joe’s. We were almost out of Cookie Butter, not sure how I let that happen. Anyway, I’m weird and certain grocery and super stores (Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Costco) provide the same feeling of retail therapy to me as a trip to the mall would for other ladies.

And last night, we of course had to treat ourselves to the season finale of ‘The Bachelor’. Nola and Kiah were as unimpressed with this season as the rest of Bachelor Nation. And the fact that I just said Bachelor Nation makes me feel like I need to go read a book or watch a documentary to redeem myself. Bottom line is that Chris Harrison got a little feisty in the ‘After the Final Rose’ special, and that made up for the yawnfest of a season.

Reader Question – What were the big and/or little ways that you treated yourself this week?!

Simple Saturday

My to-do-list yesterday was minimal. And by minimal, I mean non-existent. After a busy and tiring week, I was entirely content to put on my sweatpants and robe power suit and simply relax.

Saturday morning proved to be even more productive than I had intended. I booked my flights for the Blend RetreatHollllaaaa, and managed to complete a 6 mile run with Dan and Nola. Let’s be real, my running speed is more like a fast power walking pace. Regardless, I felt tired in all the best ways.


We had paninis for lunch. Surprise, surprise.


And I decided to bake cookie bars for Dan to bring in to work with him last night.


When Dan headed to his game, I headed to my parent’s house. My mom and I had our weekly date night, complete with a trip to Trader Joe’s and Lifetime movies. Is there anything better
