Fa-la-la-la-loooooove it!


Even though Sunday HAD to be the most disgusting weather day of the week year, we still managed to get our tree, which is BEAUTIFUL by the way, and decorate it.  It was a fantastic day!  Bri joined in the festivities as well!  Here are some highlights:

Oscar and I in our matching Snuggies

Oscar looking extremely adorable

The tree process (note hot Husband!)

And we added garland/lights to the railings (one of my favorite things about my house-going to do a post on this soon!)

We had a great time and the tree turned out BEAUTIFULLY- thanks Bri!  🙂

So, husband wanted to order Italian.  I wasn’t in the mood.  I wanted mac ‘n cheese…of course.  Lately I have been jonesin for these babies like crazy!  210 cals, from whole foods- 4.99 for the 4-pack!  Microwaveable, just add water- 3.5 minutes yumyum!  THEN, I added some steamed broccoli and I got this AMAZING YUMYUM (for about 300 cals!)  niiiiiice!

Try it.  Now.  For real.


Oh, Whole Foods, what you do to me…

I just LOVE Whole Foods and the dangerous awesome thing is that it is around the corner from chez Downes!  HAHA!  Anyway, tonight I went for some goodies for dinner- we ended up having such a yummy dinner (and all from Whole Foods)…jasmine rice, chicken simmered in a masala sauce for a looong time (until it was sooo tender), baby bellas and peas.  YUM.

So some random Whole Foods thoughts…

                                                                                                    I wish I loved (but dont)…

It always looks and smells so yummy, though!

                                                                                                …and DO love (but wish i didn’t)

If you don't know what it is, don't worry about it...it's embarassing

Looked SOOOO yummy (“naturally flavored” gummy bears in cool flavors like goji berry)…until I saw the price tag- that glass jar—-40 bocks!  woah.  nope.  not that much, i don’t like ’em…

And I LOVE Late July (both the products, like those below AND the time of year!)


Anyway, the trip night was awesome!  Hope yours was too!  What is YOUR favorite Whole Food or like-store (Trader Joe’s etc.) product????
