I finally made it to whole foods to get some needed baking items. On Monday, I actually drove there, and got out of the car for a second, but Nick woke up (we are having some nap issues) - so I turned around and drove home. That was like seeing a big warm chocolate chip cookie and having to walk away. But I made it today! Man, I love the products there but it is so expensive! I would love a shopping spree to whole foods. Free shopping forever. How can I get that? One cool thing is that they give you 5 cents back (per bag I think) for using your own bags. I went at 8am today, the best time to go and browse. Otherwise, I want to run people over with my shopping cart! It happens to be in a ritzy area and I'm not a big fan of everyone on their cell phones walking around in their heels. Anyway, I got some good stuff for some baking! I can't wait to make some of my favorite items for the giveaway! Also, they were just putting out hemp seeds and Amazing Grass items. I wouldn't even know what they were (nor most of the items I was buying) if not for blogging! When I was in college, whole foods was called Fresh Fields. Sometimes I can't shake calling it Fresh Fields, but I'm getting better!
Speaking of which, I really want to win this giveaway for Amazing Grass that Erica has going on. Check it out (but don't enter, bc I want to win!!haha) Just saw Amanda has a giveaway going on to! Hmm.. why can't Amazing Grass contact me to try it out??
Nick is going to try some bananas today. So far, he's had brown rice, oats, and apples. He likes the apples the best. We'll try out the bananas. Sometimes I use the hand blender that I use for my smoothies, but sometimes it is so little of an amount that it doesn't work. Then, I whip out the mini food processor, an item I've made fun of for years - I put a big food processor on my wedding registry and one of my mom's cheap aunts bought me this mini one instead. I just got the normal size one for christmas this year from my inlaws - and man have I been making use of it!
And talking about blogs, when you find a new blog that you like and you comment here and there, after how long do you follow the blog if the blogger never checks out your blog and comments? Does it depend on how much you like the blog? I tend to follow blogs for a while, but if I never get a comment from the blog I am following, I might just stop reading the other blog. Is that wrong? I love hearing from you, so I'd rather comment on your blogs than those who aren't reading mine. What do you think?
