Randoms & Kona Chameleon

Random #1: A good frozen meal
Torrance asked me last week if I could find something easy for him to cook for dinner because some nights while I am at training he says he doesn’t feel like waiting until after 8 to eat. Fair enough.

I picked this up from the freezer section:

photo (5)I chose this for a couple of reasons – I like salmon, jasmine rice, and broccoli; All you do is pop some it in the microwave; and it actually had a very simple ingredient list and not a bunch of extra crap and preservatives.

photo (3)-004So simple! Everything was in it’s own little individual steamer bag. Both salmon filets, the broccoli and the rice. It took 10 minutes and the dijon sauce that comes for the salmon was delish (and its on the side so you can choose how much you put on!)! Since my grocery store seems to have gross fish lately, I may buy this whole thing just for the salmon (kidding)

Random #2: Kona’s new BFF
She is obsessed with her stuffed dog. She carries it everywhere with her.

Random #3: World Market is the bomb
I absolutely LOVE the store World Market (that yes, I recently discovered because I was sheltered), if you have never been – it is like a cheaper Pier 1 I guess you could say.

A few weeks ago I saw some stuff there that I wanted and figured I would buy later on. Yesterday they sent me a coupon for 25% off since I am part of their reward program, so I went in and got some of the stuff I wanted at lunch (since the coupon was only good for a few days). Some of it was even an additional 10% off.

I saved $110 off of stuff I was going to buy anyway! I consider that a huge victory.

(iPhone picture – sorry!) I love that slanted shelf, and obviously havent gotten a chance to put books and all the “stuff” on it yet. I was actually a little sad they didn’t have the color of that papasan chair that I originally wanted anymore, but oh well. Kona likes the brown….

If you look very closely you can see a brown dog (her nose and head are on the bottom left of the chair). She is like a chameleon.

Random #4: It has been a busy hectic week/day/morning
My posts have been short and sweet this week for the most part because I have been crazy busy! And I only made it to training twice this week!

Mostly, because Torrance’s mom is flying in from FL tonight and will be staying for a week! I’m super excited! It was a little last-minute so I have been rushing around getting stuff ready(specifically, our house which is in disarray).

This morning I actually woke up and did some cleaning (ew) and amidst the chaos I decided I was in much need of Starbucks which I havent had in weeks!

Blended white chocolate Americano – yes please! And my delicious egg sandwich from home of course 😉

Random #5: Game obsession
Okay, all you fellow iPhoners (or other smart phoners) who were/are obsessed with Words With Friends you need to download this game:

It is the Pictionary version of Words With Friends – it is seriously so hilarious. I love it.


Okay, that’s all for now!

  2. Oh boy!! That sounds exactly like my husband. I think he hates that we generally eat at 8-9 due to my gym habits. At least he goes too so that helps. I imagine that if he was sitting at home, he’d be dying.

    I love word games!! A new fave is funglish! You should try it. It’s kind of a taboo/password hybrid.

  3. Love World Market! Their ethnic food session is to die for and I love that they carry all the fun candy from all over the world. My other fav there? The wine section OF COURSE 🙂 You can get some pretty cheap and good wine there; too bad you can’t use coupons on them!

  4. I just love Kona! Reminds me so much of Jet! They are just so funny!

  5. Taboo isn’t technically a board game I guess, but it’s one of my favorites. My husband is a big fan of Monopoly, but I don’t like it! Too much thinking!! 😉

    • I like the idea of monopoly but it goes on forever I usually lose interest quick haha.
      Taboo is a good one! I consider that a board game 🙂

  6. World Market is SUCH a happy place. I just discovered it in December–so cool!

    My favorite board game is Life–I stinking love the little pink and blue peg people. I could play that game all day long!

    I hope you have an amazing time with Torrence’s mom! How fun! I love parental visits!

  8. I love World Market! They have the best prices and the coolest stuff. They have some very…interesting…things there as well – I once found a canned product labeled “Heinz Spotted Dick Meat” – appetizing right? I didn’t buy it, but I did take a picture! 🙂

    Kona is definitely hidden well in that picture – I had to look very closely. Our brown dog, Harley, loves to sleep on furniture as well.

    I’m going to download that game now! Enjoy the time with Torrence’s mom – have a GREAT weekend, girl!
