Trader Joe's Woes.....

As you all know, I live in the sticks. Like an hour from the nearest Publix....seriously tragic for a rather impulsive foodie like myself. And just to add to my grocery lamenting the closest Whole Foods is 2.5 hours away. Boo, boo, and more boo. I don't even want to mention Trader Joe's....but I will: the nearest TJ's is a whole state away! Yes, you heard me the entire Sunshine State cannot lay claim to a single Trader Joe's.

And then I saw this in my "local" WPB Urban Outfitters:

Talk about rubbing salt in the wound. Which explains the truly terrifying face I was making...sorry loves. (I think Visine will heal most minor eye irritations caused by looking at my ridiculous mug.)

But my recent trip to DC helped apply a slave to the gaping Trader Joe's abyss in my life.

I was traveling very light, with just a carry on, so I couldn't load up....but I have lots of ideas for next time, tehehe. (Yes, I had to take a picture with the Copious Condiments know my addiction runs deep!).  Bec and I stocked up on delicious cheeses, dried fruit of all varieties and of course wine. Ahhh. Nothing like great deals with a side of cute, chatty check out boy. Life is good, my friends.

Love to all,
~the Trader Joe's girl at heart, Jess

Alright, easy on the blog humor woman. I just about dropped my hotdog (yes I buy packs of hotdogs for myself) on my white couch on account of the "visene" comment. Don't forget your great grocery store advantage- a car!! You'd be surprised how un-ideal my grocery situation really is! xo

You know I have never been to a Trader Joe's. You have me curious.

I'm not good at picking out food for people but if you find something (non-perishable) that you love, I can always make you a TJ care package and ship it to you.

I love hearing from you!
