I bought myself flowers at Trader’s Joes yesterday, because, well, $3.99! And flowers make home happier. I really love having fresh flowers around and should probably keep them on my perpetual grocery shopping list. Especially the jewel-toned Fall variety … they’re just gorgeous!

The tomatoes went on this pasta dish and the power juice is for a new smoothie I’m testing out! If all goes well, I’ll definitely share. The huge tub of chocolate chip cookie dunkers? Those are for the kids the mom.

    The flowers you picked are beautiful. So not looking forward when my daughter turn three. šŸ™ˆ I have been nursing my daughter for more than a year and love it. I nursed my first daughter for two years.

    It’s nice to treat yourself once in a while. I had two older kids and an 18 month old but I still remember the threenager stage so I feel for you on that
