I am almost positive that if you read any blogs written by people that live in Utah or you you have talked to anybody that lives there then you have heard about the fact that the first ever TRADER JOE’S in Utah finally opened!
We had heard from people that it has been so crazy busy there that everything was selling out and that the shelves were empty. We called to see when the best time to come in is so that we can buy one of everything and it is this morning. We are driving the 40 minutes to get there first thing this morning and then I will go for a run after.
My mom has never been to Trader Joe’s, this is going to be a life-changing day for her. I cannot wait to take her on a tour of the entire store and point out the best things there.
Random information that you didn’t really need to know:
During the winter months there are usually a few deer in my parents’ yard every day. My mom really loves it when they eat all of her plants.
For dinner last night we had my mom’s meatloaf (which for some crazy reason I didn’t like during high school (I was quite rebellious back then) but absolutely love now) with mashed potatoes and peas. I also had to include Brooke’s cute little rolls and knee socks (her pants got some stains on them;) in the picture.
This did in fact happen twice in one day but I have my reasonings. 1. My cousin and I wanted to hang out and we both love ice cream. 2. I have free coupons that I NEED to use before I leave. 3. Nothing is better than talking to one of your bestest friends in the whole world over a cup of cold froyo. We were there for 2.5 hours. Best Two-A-Day ever.
For your viewing entertainment: Brooke’s first night of real rolling over (she did it once a few weeks ago but I think it was a fluke because she was laying on a tilted surface and gravity rolled her over). Tummy time for babies is like a marathon for us. Just notice the look in her face… girlfriend is using every fiber in her being to get rolled over. I am very proud of my little fighter. (Watch on mute if you prefer not to hear me yelling my excitement).
If you could choose just one store to be so close to you that you could walk to it, what would it be?
-Since I made up the game I can choose two, Trader Joe’s and Yogurtland.
What was a food that you HATED in high school (or younger) but now you love?
What wild animals do you have near where you live?
What is something that you think I NEED to buy at TJ’s for my mom to experience?
