Is Today a Holiday?

A lot of you may have the day off, but I am working today. Boo hoo! Am I the only one working?

If you have not tried these bad boys yet, you must! These blueberry muffins from Fiber One are delicious! I found out about them from Megan at Sugar and Spice. I used Egg Beaters (I am obsessed) instead of eggs to make them and they were still tasty! I highly recommend these instead of some of the other brands out there.

Yesterday, Fred and I went to Whole Foods. This was the first time that I had been to a store like this. I was overwhelmed, scared and excited all at the same time. Some of the food was scary. Mostly because I had never seen anything like it in my life before. I am trying to eat better and this was a step in the right direction. Maybe Sunday wasn't the best day to go because the place was packed and I felt like I was rushed to get through each aisle. So, after we left there, I had Fred take me to my trusty ole Kroger to get things that were on my list that Whole Foods did not carry. (the muffins mentioned above came from Kroger not Whole Foods) I am willing to give the store another try when it's less crowded. Do you guys shop at places like this? If so, what do you buy?

Did anyone watch the Golden Globes last night? I didn't but all I really care about are the dresses:
L to R: Emily Blunt(love the pink), Marion Cotillard (not cute), Tina Fey (not best dressed), Sandra Bullock (beautiful color) and Olivia Wilde (not doing it for me) I love Amy Poehler's red dress!
And I LOVE Anna Paquin's Stella McCartney dress! But who doesn't love Sookie Stackhouse?

Who was the best dressed in your opinion?

Happy Monday!!!

I am with you, I didn't watch it but I saw lots of the dresses on The Today Show this morning. I think my favorite was Kate Hudson!

Ooooh I really want to go to Whole Foods. I've never been (obviously, cause we don't have it in France !) but I'm pretty sure I'd go crazy over all the healthy options !

I only care about the dresses, too. I loved Anna Paquin's !

Those muffins look yummy. I will have to try them.

I tivo'd the awards and will probably skim through them tonight. I did get caught up on the dresses at people.com. I liked Sandra Bullock the best.

There isn't a Whole Paycheck near us anywhere, but I have been a few times when I used to work down in the "hip" part of town. They have some delicious food and fixins for some excellent salads. Try out the prepared food... if that sort of thing doesn't skeeve you out, which, it doesn't me.

I keep seeing coupons for Fiber One muffins, but will have to commit some time and buy them. Thanks for the recommendation!

Heather said...

I LOVE Whole Foods, I could spend all day in there!!

Stephanie said...

Love Love Love - Anna and Stephen together!! Ha - I wish I was their friend so I could attend the wedding!! On the topic of Whole Foods, I have been there a few times and it was so overwhelming that I didnt enjoy myself. I agree with you about going back during the week when maybe its not so crowded!!

Stephanie said...

Don't feel too lonely - I'm working too! {A 2 hour commute + a 14 hour day, to be exact...}

The Pink Chick said...

I am also working! Booo! However, the good news is I only have 15 minutes until I am in my little car headed home! Yay! I hope you have a wonderful Monday even though you had to work!

Tiff said...

Oh I gotta agree- Amy P looked gorgeous!

Cee said...

Sookie and Bill looked great...yea, I will only call them Sookie and Bill. I really liked Amy's dress too, but I love red so that's probably why!

Jen said...

That's the first pic I've seen of Anna P - love that dress wow! Emily B was stunning!

Whole Foods is amazing. Give it another try and you'll be hooked! I work in the Clark Tower so I visit there ALOT! :)

I love that dress Sandra Bullock was wearing!

The Fiber One apple cinnamon muffins are also fabulous! I haven't tried blueberry because Costco only carries the ginormous box of apple cinnamon.

I love Fiber One muffins. My mom bought us some pre-made ones from the freezer section: Banana Chocolate Chip. Divine!!

And I shop Trader Joe's. It's cheaper than Whole Foods. I still have to go to Kroger to get some staples, but I don't mind going to 2 places so I can get organics as well as the other things we need.
