WIAW Post-Vacation

12 Mar

It is definitely an understatement when we say it is a little difficult to get back into the swing of things after spending seven days away on vacation. After being in 70-80 degree temperatures, 30 degree temperatures were no longer considered “warmer days”. However, hopefully we will see some warmer days ahead! Each day we are counting down the days left until spring! Eight to go! We cannot wait.

Although it was wonderful to have someone cook and serve us dinner for seven whole days, we would be lying if we said we did not miss cooking in our own kitchen. We could not wait to get home and purchase some of our favorite basics we missed during our trip! Heres what was on our list.

1. Plain Greek Yogurt
2. Mixed Greens
3. Hummus
4. Oversized Carrots
5. Sweet Potatoes 
6.  Flavored Coffee
7. Kale
8. Strawberries

We were planning to stop at a Costco on the way home, but instead we passed a Trader Joes so of course we just had to stop! Thankfully our mom picked up a few things at Costco for us anyways, but we were also able to get our favorite hummus, pink lady apples, a few jars of our favorite unsalted peanut butter, and trail mix! What is your favorite thing to purchase from Trader Joes?

We used these groceries to get us through the next few days until we are onto our next adventure. We wanted to link up with Peas and Crayons to give you a closer look at what we have been enjoying these past few days. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the What I Ate Wednesday party over on her blog!

We definitely missed our favorite foods during our Spring Break getaway, but enjoyed all of our time unplugged, relaxed, and soaking up the sun! Can you tell we got a little burnt?
