Happy Mother’s Day! I hope all you mothers–moms of humans, moms to be, or moms of furry ones– have a wonderful day. I love being a dog mom!
I’m so grateful for my wonderful mom who is endlessly supportive and loving. She’s also so funny. I love all the fun things she did for me as a kid like waking me up singing goofy songs, and writing notes on my lunches, even when I was in high school. She still sends me funny notes with pictures drawn on them. I love it. 🙂 I love you so much mom!
I also love this gem of a family photo my brother posted on Facebook earlier today.
Alright onto the Weekender! Here are the links I liked this week.
The most popular Trader Joe products of 2013. I need to try the Rosemary Marcona almonds (I LOVE marcona almonds and I had no idea TJ’s carried them), cocoa almond butter and the chili lime chicken burgers (hopefully they’re gluten-free!). I haven’t really liked TJ’s almond butter but I haven’t seen the salted version they feature in the article. I can attest the dark chocolate caramels are amazing; the ones with sea salt on them are even better. I want to try the chocolate covered orange sticks too; I love those as a kid when we’d get boxes at Christmas. There, I ruined the surprise by telling you about half of what’s on the list.
Find your perfect match with online dating…for a pet. 🙂
Holy moly I want to eat these grain-free, dairy-free cinnamon rolls.
Strawberry Lemon Curd Doughtnuts. I will take a dozen please.
Really? Towns with diehard fashionistas…Winston-Salem is #1??? I blame (or give credit to?) WFU for this. (A couple readers shared this with me…thanks!)
