I am home from NYC happy to be reunited with my peeps. They missed me and I them. I thought I would jump back into this space with a fun little post, the final answer me this post of the summer, hosted by the lovely Kendra @ Catholic All Year.
1. What’s your favorite grocery store splurge?
I go to the local Wegmen’s for my weekly grocery trip. I love the veggies and bakery selection. I stick to the house brands of things and I avoid the prepared foods aisle. Way too many temptations there. Must stick to the budget…must.
Since Courtney’s death, no only has our grocery bill lessened seeing as we do not need as many fresh items to make her daily blended diet, I don’t need to go more than once a week. We eat a pretty varied diet with some international food every now and again. Anyway, if I splurge, then I usually get a tray of sushi from the sushi bar. Jerry calls it bait, I call it delish. My favorite is the coconut shrimp sushi roll. Crunchy, spicy with a hit os sweetness.
3. Do you have a “Summer Bucket” List?
Not really. I am trying to be open to new experiences this summer, especially as we approach Courtney’s birthday in August. It’s a good distraction for me. I just got back from NYC and Charleston, SC. and am happy to be home for now.

We go to OK in August to celebrate my in-laws 60th Wedding Anniversary. That will be a good trip. So happy to join in the celebration.
Everything that Kendra shared…I love. I would add in this gem as well. My kids sang it all week during work camp.
I am also a fan of Taylor Swift. “Shake it Off” helps get the vacuuming done in a timely manner. Plus the video is funny.
5. Ice cream or frozen yogurt?
Without a moments hesitation…ice cream. My favorite is a soft serve vanilla cone covered with rainbow sprinkles served at Jimmy Cone in Damascus, MD. It is divine. I love it! Every time I go see my mom, we swing by and have a little treat.
