Good morning everyone!
Sorry I’ve been away for a while. The vacation with my friend was really awesome. It felt good being in America again. But the good thing about leaving the husband behind while you go on vacation, is that you are as excited leaving (because you know you going to have so much fun with your friends), as you are coming back home! I think because he and I were away for so long (5.5 years of being 5000+ miles apart), one week without him is the maximum I can do….Pretty cheesy, I know….
Anyways, what’s so cool about travelling to America is that I get to shop at places like Central Market or Whole Foods, and bring back lots of goodies for home!
I love all the veggies in front of the store. Especially the brussel sprout! so cute…
And here is what I brought back:
Peppered organic beef jerky, corn grits, organic mac and cheese, pancake mix and syrup, spicy cinnamon gum, raw honey, a cool muffin pan, and a heart shaped frying pan!
I was so glad I could find my husband’s favorite pancake mixes, from Kerbey Lane Café in Austin, Tx! He loves the gingerbread one but I think my favorite is pumpkin! They are so fluffy and tasty! I also decided to try some Butter Pecan Syrup. Never had it but it sounded so decadent!
I also got these 2 movies:
I LOVED Food, Inc! But I don’t think the DVD will ever come out in France. And believe it or not, I haven’t seen Julie and Julia yet! I missed it when it was in the theaters…. I’m so excited!
Also, one of the things I kept thinking about while I was away is that I should really make (more) time for me and my family. I felt I had lost track of myself and I have consequently decided to reexplore some activities I used to enjoy like shopping at the market on sundays, baking, participating in group classes at the gym, bike riding and running at dawn….. Even my cooking and blogging became very sporadic in the last few weeks before my vacation. And I’m determined to not let this happen again! So hopefully I’ll be able to share some pretty rocking adventures with yall!!!
