Yay! I always get so excited when I write this post. It means that the weekend is upon us! It also helps that the Sun is streaming through my office windows right now and (fingers crossed) Spring might be here to stay! Here are a few things that made me smile this week:
1. I came across these little beauties in Trader Joe’s last weekend! I always find myself throwing out half-used heads of garlic and leftover herbs. They start to go bad before I can get to them all. Or I need garlic and I realize I have none. These little cubes of goodness go in your freezer and you pop them right into your recipe. No muss, no fuss, no need to defrost. One cube equals one clove of garlic. I’m in love.
2. This is my last Trader Joe’s food related item on ALG for a while because it just occurred to me that I am becoming a total groupie. These almonds are AMAZING! I am a huge sweets person and I have been able to satisfy that craving by eating a few of these after dinner. So yummy.
3. I have been searching for new tan boots all Winter. Every pair I’ve tried had to be returned. Either they were they wrong shade of brown or they wound up being cheap-looking but I was never able to find my perfect pair. Then I happened upon these beauties and they were on sale! It was destiny! It is looking like Spring is here now so I might not get a lot of use out of them until Fall but it’s okay because the search is over and I will be able to break them out in October.
5. Lastly, I am most excited because I am heading to Boston this weekend for an impromptu visit with one of my besties and her adorable offspring! I cant wait to see them!
I wish you all a lovely weekend! As usual, I am linking up with The Lauren Elizabeth, The Diary of a Real Housewife and Hello Happiness. If you get a moment, you should swing by their blogs and show some love.
