I left Vermont bright and early yesterday morning to beat the huge snow storm that they got there. At 8:00 AM, it was already snowing like crazy and the roads were a mess, so I’m glad that I headed out when I did. I heard they got 20 inches!
So, this post is going to be all over the place. I’ll have part two of my Ben & Jerry’s recap for you guys tomorrow, but, in the meantime, enjoy these 11 random tidbits!
I met Ben & Jerry! I’ll give you guys all of the details tomorrow, but it was definitely one of the highlights of the trip for me. I just had to tell you guys!
The sweet potato gnocchi from Trader Joe’s is absolutely incredible—definitely buy it! The Shepard’s pie from Trader Joe’s (according to Mal) is not so delicious—avoid it.
I ate scrambled egg whites with roasted sweet potatoes and turkey for breakfast yesterday morning and loved it so much. I never thought to add sweet potatoes to scrambled eggs, but it is definitely a flavor combination that I must recreate at home.
I love my new CrossFit Endurance Training Hoodie from Reebok and wear it ALL of the time! Seriously, it’s the best. (I’m also really thankful that Reebok sends me gear in larger sizes. I’m getting BIG!)
I love all the little details on this top—a side pocket that zips, “Forging Elite Fitness” written down the back of the right arm, and “I will find more within myself” written along the forearm. I also love the “ghost cameo” pattern all over as well as the extra long fit. It is definitely a go-to piece for me!
Murphy and his big pug butt have crushed all of the throw pillows on the couch on our sun porch. It’s kind of funny and just plain adorable, so I let him get comfortable where he wants.
My sister and I are going shopping this weekend to find me something to wear to my baby shower in a few weeks. I can’t believe it’s coming up so soon!
I’m taking my first ever SoulCycle class next week, and I am so pumped. I hear the classes are amazing!
Ever since Mal and I went to IKEA this past weekend, I’ve been obsessed with organizing our house all IKEA-like and have spent way too much time on their website and Pinterest trying to get ideas. Is this all part of the nesting stuff? (Every time I type “nesting” I feel like I’m a bird or something.)
One of my new favorite snacks is mixing cheese wedges from The Laughing Cow with sweet ingredients like honey and dried cranberries. I made these melba toasts the other day and they were so, so, so tasty! Just passing along the snack idea!
