this is not something that any of us didn't already know. it applies to any kind of grocery shopping, right? and with the lovely array of snacks available at target, it works there too. i've come home with all sorts of yummy treats from target once or several hundred times. shocking, i know.
but there are times when it just can't be helped. the bean had her first level 2 class of gymboree on tuesday (and it was really fun, much more active than the first level), and when we gymboree, that means we've got fun places like target, trader joe's, petco, and party city within walking distance. like, they're all just across the parking lot! and i wanted to check out some of the items in the current trader joe's fearless flyer.
of course, it'd been such a busy morning that i hadn't had time to have a thing to eat, and now it was past noon. eek. my poor tummy was growling and gurgling, but we were right there! so i strapped the bean into place and in we went.
$50 later, we walked out with stuff like egg white salad with smoked salmon and capers, a tri-tip wrap, spinach dip, ice cream cookie sandwiches, and the most fabulous box of 4 frozen chocolate croissants. they're so cool - you take the frozen, unbaked dough out of the container and set it on a cookie sheet to "proof", or rise, overnight. after you ooh and aah over how it's puffed up to twice its original size, you pop it into the oven and 20 minutes later, you have a buttery, flaky, oh-so-yummy chocolate-filled croissant. i pulled two out last night, thinking it'd make a nice breakfast for me and the hub with a nice big glass of butt ass (that was for you, willikat!) cold milk.
well, he got up and left for work earlier than i expected. what's a girl to do?
yeah, i just ate 'em both. :X
