I don’t know if you recognize this bowl of oatmeal, it may look the same as my traditional bowl, but it is so very different. It happens to have the infamous PB2 sneaking up on the left side.. it wasn’t long before I ate it though..
As some of you may know- I was in Seattle this past week visiting with my girlfriend who was visiting from St. Louis (if anyone knows of a great yoga studio there- please comment and tell me so I can pass it on!). Well, we weren’t just in Seattle, we were in Vancouver, riding BC Ferries (to Vancouver Island), driving through Cowichan Bay, hitting up Bean Around the World in China town, and going to yoga classes (taught by Fiji). We basically did all the things you would do on holiday, but it wasn’t until we got to the States that I felt I could relax and get into going-to-the-states mode..
What’s that look like?!
Bliss upon walking into Target; eating an entire box of Heart to Heart Cereal in a few days because I think it looks so cute (not to mention is fun to eat); hunting down PB2, to the point where I have to go at 7am the day we’re leaving and let the owner of the store know they need to be open on weekends for people coming from Canada; trips to Sephora to buy Bare Minerals make-up because my friends easily convince me it will change my life; going to Trader Joe’s and getting nothing exciting other then wine because we can; opening a bottle of wine just for a glass, fully knowing we’re leaving the next day and won’t be able to take it- because it’s only $8, in Canada, it’s double that.
I think I actually might have peed my pants a little bit when I got to Target- it was a double decker ‘market’ one where they even had produce, not to mention the woman with the thick Southern accent saying “I don knaow that we shud get thaat, we’ve got kraft dinner in the paantrayy”..
Do you guys get excited traveling to other countries for groceries? Or do you have grocery envy? (Americans- you even have chocolate covered Altoids- it’s INSANE!)
