I would like to introduce everyone to the 3 J’s.
In 5th grade we met, we became best friends and did everything together. Everyone called us the 3 J’s because all of our names started with a J and we were kind of connected at the hips. We even had the same hair cuts.
We were actually really cool as you can tell.
Two of the J’s got together.
90% of you are going to faint when I tell you that we went to a Lululemon and a Whole Foods in Salt Lake that are next door to each other.
I was kind of forced to buy something and when I went to the cash register to pay for my new tank Brooke immediately picked up the pen and started signing her name….I am really teaching her great habits at such a young age. She sure pays attention to every little thing I do.
This was my first time experiencing the Whole Foods salad bar and add this delicious food to conversation with one of my two oldest friends and that equals the best way to spend the afternoon.
My J friend whipped this out after lunch for me to try and it was actually really good (and I am always very skeptical of these types of things but it is something I might buy in the future to eat right before a run or race).
Salt Lake City is about 45 minutes from my house now and since I was in the area I was very excited to stop by and get the necessities from Trader Joe’s. Every item in this basket is really the best.
Next stop was my sister’s house where she was making a crate of pico de gallo. I don’t know if you can tell how big this container is but there had to have been 10+ tomatoes in there. You can never have enough pico. Her husband likes to eat….this made his day.
And my niece lost both front teeth yesterday.
You are never going to believe me but this whole meal (plus drinks) costed $2. My friend took me with her coupon for dinner and can you take a moment to look at her baby’s arms? Cutest little thing ever. The orangish dip is called Fry Sauce, a Utah specialty, it is mayo and ketchup mixed together. Sounds awful but once you try it you will be hooked.
It is raining like crazy and I am not sure if it is going to keep raining this morning….who wants to bet on whether or not I get to the track to do my speed work or the treadmill?!?
Do you like/eat bars (like the Honey Stinger one above or larabars/cliff/quest etc)? What kind is your favorite?
Are you still in touch with any of your elementary school friends?
Favorite Trader Joe’s find lately? How close is one to you?
Who has tried fry sauce before?!?!
