We pulled into St. Louis around 1 am on a Monday morning; I will share more about our actual "kinda" move in another post. Since our arrival we have been trying to find our way around here.
Finding my way around the city has been, well, an adventure to say the least. After repeatedly calling Jeremy (interrupting his conjugating of verbs and declining of nouns) to ask for his help to find my way home, he ordered a GPS device for the van. Thanks, Jeremy, for saving me from my aimless wandering!
I am still figuring out my top choice for grocery shopping. Schnucks? Deirbergs? Aldi's? I miss our HEB on Wooded acres in Waco. We have been here just over two and a half weeks and I not driven past a Hobby Lobby or a Michael's (where are the craft stores?) and I had not seen a Walmart until today! Can you believe that? Locating a Target was easy and required no GPS to get there, thank goodness.
I did get to shop at my dream grocery store last week. I heart you Trader Joe's. You are right across from Target, so that makes it easy. I heart your location too. And I heart that you gave me a free bouquet of flowers in honor of my first time to shop there. And I heart these sunny sunflowers that I picked out.
I already knew the location of Anthropologie, thanks to our trip back in March. I did show some restraint, waiting until Friday to window shop. Window shopping was fun and I found some delightful things in the kitchen section. Unfortunately, since I was just window shopping, I had to leave those things there.
If you have a favorite cook in your life, here are some fun gift ideas to brighten up their kitchen, they are all under $20, so not too bad on the budget.
Every time you measure out a spice....fun!
This can serve two purposes, which in a tight space is pretty essential. Put your freshly purchased Trader Joe's or farmer's market eggs in this dish and it would certainly make whipping up a batch of scrambled eggs a little less mundane feeling. And in the spring, use it to display freshly dyed Easter eggs.
and this dishtowel is just so happy!
Okay friends, the kids are up, and that means it is time to get this day underway.
Have a great weekend!
