Finally – a Sort of Local Trader Joe’s


A few days ago a Trader Joe’s opened about a half hour from our house.  We always loved Trader Joe’s when we lived up north and have been waiting many years for Trader Joe’s to come to Florida.

Later this year we’ll get a Trader Joe’s in Boca Raton, but we had friends to visit in Wellington, FL and decided to check out the Trader Joe’s there.

It was everything we remembered and more.  We bought lots of goodies, including this treat for Zoe, our Pickle Girl!

Amazing Peacock Mugs


I need to come clean with you. I have a peacock obsession.

However, I made this purchase also based on something practical.

For months I’ve been burning my hands on my mugs when I take them out of the microwave.

After doing a little online research, I found out that stoneware in the microwave leads to hot handles. Porcelain and china do not.  All of this has to do with the chemical composition of the materials.

So I decided to buy some porcelain or china mugs. And if I needed to buy new mugs, why not buy ones with a peacock design? :)

After an hour of searching online, I found these at  Yay!
