Last night, I was ultra girly and turned my bathroom into a spa.
I took a bath, attempted to give myself a pedicure (which wasn’t easy considering the fact that I can no longer reach my toes), put on some soothing music, and layered on a facial mask- a bright, white, scary-looking, clay mask.
While the mask was doing its thing, Lucy and I went out to the backyard, so she could relieve herself.
Plus, she just looked bored.
Our yard is pretty private and it was getting dark, so I figured that no one would see me in my mask.
Well, imagine my surprise when I heard a woman’s voice calling out “Yoohoo!” while I was standing out there.
Yep. After over two years of living behind us, my neighbor decided to come on over and introduce herself.
Talk about an awkward moment.
Had I been out there in a ball gown with a full face of makeup, I’m pretty sure there wouldn’t have been a living soul around for miles.
Anyway, I did some Trader Joe’s shopping earlier that day (sans clay mask, of course), and judging by what I purchased, I’m clearly ready for the fall.
(See my list of weekly grocery staples here if you want to know what else I purchased.)
Organic creamy tomato soup
Plain Greek yogurt (which hasn’t upset my stomach at all lately!)
Greek pumpkin yogurt (cannot wait to try this)
Udi’s gluten free bread (for Michael)
The cashier is also a pumpkin fan and told me that the rest of the seasonal specialty items will be on the shelves very soon. I’m so excited!
Has anything embarrassing happened to you lately?What is your favorite seasonal item at Trader Joe’s? I think I’d have to go with their pumpkin butter. Love it!
aw, haha! that’s so funny, but cute. this weekend i tried to jump on my friend’s bike (with him, what??) and totally ate pavement. my knees were bleeding in 3 places and i have these huge scrapes and bruises. ugh.
Wow, pumpkin butter sounds AMAZING. Yanno, I don’t have anything embarassing recently, but this totally sounds like something that would happen to me. I ONLY run into people when something like that is going on. It’s like they just know.
Does having your work chair that is on wheels suddenly move on you and almost land on your arse (lucky it was a pants kinda day)count as embarassing?!? That darn chair tried to trip me up yesterday and I am sticking with that it is ALL the chair’s fault and not the operator – ha! I have not gotten into a Fall mindset yet – still in the 90s here. I do love a good oktoberfest beer though:)
