Hello and happy, happy, happy THURSDAY to you!

I’m mixing things up a little bit this week and publishing my weekly What I’m Loving Lately a day early. I hope that’s okay with you. Yes? Ok, then. Ready? GO!

Stop & Shop’s Buy Local program – Each week, Stop & Shop’s produce departments will highlight local farms and feature fresh items from them. Stop & Shop will celebrate all of its Buy Local efforts in stores throughout New England this Saturday (July 18) with visits from local farmers, family-friendly activities and produce sampling. Cool, right? I’m definitely planning to shop there on Saturday!

My old Sit ”˜N’ Spin that my nephew now plays with – Seeing it at my sister’s house was a serious blast from the past. I used to love that thing so much. I’m glad Matthew is having a good time with it!


Dear Crappy Parent – Loved this x 1,000,000.

Saut̩ing kale and storing the leftovers in the fridge РI just grab some and throw it into meals (i.e. eggs, sandwiches, salads, pasta) for added nutrients.


Baked Zucchini Fries – These are totally on my must-make list for next week!

25 Amazing Ways to Save More at Target – I thought I knew everything about saving money at Target, but #6, #15, and #22 were news to me!

Brownie Brittle – I received a bag of Brownie Brittle in a gift box after the Google Express event earlier this week, and it’s the best stuff ever. It’s basically a brownie cookie. OMGSOGOOD!


Questions of the Day

What was your favorite toy growing up?

Have you ever tried Brownie Brittle?



  1. that sit and spin! my pediatrician’s office had one! wow, i hadn’t thought about that in a while 🙂

  2. My favorite toy still has a special place in my room: a stuffed gray dog I named Toto (MASSIVE Wizard of Oz fan here). I don’t remember getting him, but apparently some nuns were handing them out at this production of Cinderella that the Omaha Children’s Theatre was putting on, and the ugly stepsisters were played by hairy men? I honestly wish I could remember this. it sounds awesome. 🙂 But Toto and I have been together ever since.

  3. The skip it and pogo ball were my favorite toys growing up. I’ve never tried the brittle, but now I’m dying to get my hands on it. Yum! This week I’m loving your stroller workouts!! We’ve done two so far this week!

  4. Favorite toy hands down was Barbie! Between my sister and I we had like 15 barbies and we would play for hours with them together!

    I tried the brownie brittle back in January. The Boston Wine expo was giving out bags, my sister and I took a handful home (each, hahaha)…they didn’t last long, eek! I have yet to buy a bag due to my lack of self control

  5. I loved that giant ball with the handle you hopped on. I can’t remember the name.

    Brownie brittle is dangerously delicious. I can’t risk buying it again bc last time I ate it all. In a couple of days. In a day. Ok in a sitting….sue me 😉

  6. We totally had a sit-n-spin growing up but my favorite toys were the Fisher Price little people. We would set them up the houses, school, farm, etc all over the living room and play for hours. And those zucchini fries look delicious! I totally need to try them! I feel like I eat zucchini almost every night of the week between grilled vegetables, and zucchini noodles, but I’m not complaining!

  7. Brownie Brittle is AH-MAZING. I’ve had the caramel flavor and mint. Both are great alone or mixed in with stuff.

    Bought the brownie pretzels from CVS yesterday and can’t wait to open them! I’m saving them for my trip this weekend 😀

  8. I have not tried the brittle, but it sounds AMAZING! I’ve seen it, and now I’m just going to finally have to take the plunge;) I loved my Maple Town (anyone remember those little furry friends?) and my American Girl doll!

  9. I loved Jazzy Jewelry Kits. Not sure if they exist anymore! But really I just loved anything i could build. Lego was the best!
    Tried Brownie Brittle after I ran the Pheonix Marathon and it was pretty darn good!

  10. Brownie brittle is amazing! We get free food at Bloomberg and that is one of the snacks that they have! Huge perk, along with ice-cream Friday’s in the summer 😉

  11. They were giving out big bags of Brownie Brittle at the Boston Wine Expo. After drinking wine all day my bag didn’t exactly survive the ride home;-)
