Holy crap it’s already September. What the heck is happening this year? This week has been good thus far. I actually really love September, I always feel like I can restart routines and get focused again. I’ve hit the gym 3 days in a row (I’ll wait for my round of applause to start anytime), and have been eating super well!
Sadly the smoke is still hanging around here, I actually think it’s been worse lately…at this point, I’d even be happy with snow if it was sunshiney!
On to my favourite things, I know you’ve all been dying to know about this.
Getting to start a new day planner in September!
Okay, this is super dorky and I’m well aware of this. That being said, I love love love a good list, book, stationary and day planners definitely top the list for me. I know 90% of the world has changed over to using the calendar on their phones or computers, but for me if I don’t write it down I don’t remember. Pen and paper all the way!
Luckily for me, my lovely sister Erica got me a fresh planner for my birthday back in August, so I was set when September rolled around. I am going to try really hard this year to keep this one neat, but we’ll see what happens, sometimes I just have to write or scribble something in quickly.
This is the one that she got me, so far it’s working well! Between keeping track of my hair client appointments, meals, gym times (I told you, I’m trying to be good!!), and social schedule, I need something where each day has a fair bit of writing room, and this one has fit the bill, plus it’s super cute.
Superstore Online Grocery Shopping
This has been life changing for me!! I don’t know why but grocery shopping gives me crazy anxiety…I know I know, such a weirdo. I think it’s just the too many people and it plain old drives me crazy. Well not anymore, my dreams have come true! I shop for most other things online…why not groceries! Superstore’s Online shopping has made eating healthy and sticking to my budget so much easier, I can’t even imagine how awesome it must be for people with kids!
Prior to being able to do this, I would put off grocery shopping forever and not have any food in my house, thus going out more often and spending more. So this has been helping me not only eating healthier…but sticking to my budget better! The other thing I like about it is it gives you lots of time to compare items and prices, and not feel like you’re in someone’s way while considering if the No Name brand pasta is really as good as the other brands.
Since it’s only $3, you pick the time to pick up your order, and you can use your own bags; this service is so so worth it to me! Not to mention a serious mental health savior. Everyone has their thing, right?
Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning
This is my newest food obsession. We get so ripped off in Canada without access to stores like Target and Trader Joe’s, but I certainly stocked up whilst I was in Oregon in July. I had heard so many good things about this seasoning and holy man it did not disappoint.
Getting our Trader Joe’s drinks in our new Target cups…told you I was obsessed!
It’s a mix of sesame seeds, garlic, onion, salt and poppy seeds and it’s good on everything, or at least everything I’ve tried it on. I love it on avocado toast, eggs, veggies…the ideas are endless. If you’re at Trader Joe’s buy it…buy lots (and maybe buy me one or two!?).
This weekend I don’t have much planned. I have a few clients tomorrow and that’s about it. I’d like to try and get out to the lake for the day Sunday, but that is seriously weather dependent. No one wants to go sit outside in this horrendous smoke, but I want to get as many boat days in as possible before it gets too cold!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
