My Life Has Been Changed

Sunday. Almost Monday. Sigh.

This weekend went by in the blink of an eye. I could use like 4 solid weekends in a row. There just isn't enough time to do everything! I have a growing personal to-do list and I seem to just barely check enough things off to maintain. I did manage to get some deep cleaning done around the apartment (saramarie- I can safely say the bathroom will look spectacular for your visit and Erica I will have the kitchen under control for us to whip up some cooking mastery!) yesterday. Today I didn't get nearly as much as I needed done but I did manage to make it to Trader Joe's to do a much needed food stock-up. While I was stocking up on some frozen food I came across these:

They are frozen, pre-measured, pre-chopped/prepared garlic, basil and cilantro!

Is anyone else just blown away by this? I can not tell you how many clumps of herbs I throw away because you buy it for one recipe and then the rest of it just sits in your fridge wilting away until it finally gets tossed in my bi-weekly fridge clean-outs. These are such a great idea! I am very excited to not throw away money on these herbs anymore!

This is the rest of the haul from TJ's today. It doesn't look like a ton, but there are three major portions of meat in there, a couple frozen meals, nuts, three bottles of wine (one was like $3.50), rolls, veggies, and oatmeal. I considered it a success and hopefully will keep me from buying a lot of lunches and taking any trips to the grocery for awhile.

We also encountered some awesome performers today in Old Town. Behold:

These guys took me back to my days of playing the fiddle. It may be time to bring the violin to DC so I can brush up on my skills. Andrew and I came up with the plan for me to fiddle my way through Italy. It should be great.

On a side note. Happy 160th Founders Day to all my ADPi's out there! I wish I had been in Seattle today to celebrate the day with everyone but I have plans to wear my pin to work tomorrow to show off some of my ADPi pride!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
