I know I've posted on here before about how much I LOVE the grocery store Trader Joe's.
While I couldn't do all my grocery shopping there, it's so wonderful for so many things! Like...fun spreads, cheap peanut butter (and almond butter, which normally costs an arm and a leg!), rock bottom pricing for cheese - good ones, too - and cheap, cheap, cheap wines that taste fantastic and not a thing like Boone's!
It's an absolute wonderland of food.
And there is not a single one within several hundred of miles of my home.
So, when we went to Missouri for Thanksgiving a trip to St. Louis to hit up TJ's was on the agenda. Come rain or shine or blizzard - I was getting to my Joe's.
Todd and his mom had never been to a Trader Joe's and I think they were baffled by mine and my parents excitement about the store - until they went in themselves. Then they understood, as every TJ's shopper does, the magic of the store.
Standing outside the store, my heart going pitter-patter...
And we love you too...
Lovin' on some cheap, delicious wines. Why, oh why can't you be closer to me TJ's?? (I'm "wine"-ing, now)...
Our grocery cart. The wines not in a box are my dad's. Every other blessed thing in the cart is ours. We drove to Missouri partly because of this shopping trip! (Just kidding - sort of...)
See how fun this place is? The employees wear Hawaiian shirts...!
This sign says it all, I do believe...
I will wait for you to move closer to me my love...but I'm getting impatient.
