The Little Adventures That Make a Week

Posted on: May 5, 2011

As I sat down to write, I realized I haven’t had any one big adventure this week. However, there have been lots of little adventures that have made my week fun {despite battling my cold}.

1. Buying my bridesmaid dress for Carrie’s wedding

This dress was a great find this weekend at Macy’s. And it got the seal of approval from Rabeea and Jonathan. Clearly a winner.

Focus on the cuteness of the dress, not my unkept-haven't-felt-well look

2. Finding a great find on grass fed, organic beef

I haven’t been able to buy 100% grass fed organic beef since we left Iowa. The Texas stores sell it, but the cheapest I’ve seen has been $8.99/lb. Tough to swallow. Then…. oh glorious then. Then, a local store began their sale this week for $3.99/lb. For 100% grass fed organic beef. I bought 10 pounds yesterday and plan to return next week for another 10+ pounds.

3. Surviving the week

I think I might have caught a man cold. Because I feel super whiny and cranky. But, being the good woman that I am, I’ve pulled myself up by my boot straps and carried on with life. And with the exception of getting a little short with the girls yesterday afternoon, I think I’ve done a pretty good job.

4. Made strawberry bread

In an attempt to have something for Jonathan to take on-the-go for work day breakfast, I made strawberry bread last night. It’s a shame that the picture doesn’t capture the wonderful smell from this loaf of awesomeness.

You looks SUPER CUTE in that picture, I promise! Love the dress. When is the wedding?

Strawberry bread!!! I need to try that!

And what an awesome deal on ground beef! That’s a typical price for non-organic non-grassfed beef around here!

Thanks. πŸ™‚

The wedding is the last weekend in May in Chicago. The story of my traveling for the wedding is an adventure in itself!

And strawberry bread is awesome. I’ll email you the link {I’ve used the recipe several times}.

What a great way to break down the week, Sarah! That dress is super cute–what a good find. What recipe do you use for strawberry bread? I’ve used the one on My Baking Addiction, and it’s to die for! YUM πŸ™‚

Hey Sarah! I want that strawberry recipe! Looks delicious!

hope you feel better! Where did you find the grass fed beef that cheap?

That dress is super cute! Mmmm strawberry bread, perhaps that can be a post, I’d love the recipe too! What a great deal on beef. If I found a price like that on chicken or turkey I’d be buying 20 lbs too.

What a pesky cold, praying for health.

you totally have to keep me updated on deals on the beef etc with food.. when we move to austin!!

You look beautiful in the super cute dress! Glowing, actually. Sorry you’re battling a cold and just feel blah. Praying for you to be back to good health in no time. The strawberry bread does look interesting. I suppose it needs to be refridgerated? My daughters love strawberries and they are big fans of my banana bread. I wonder if I should give the strawberry bread a try.

By the way, wishing you a Happy Mother’s Day this weekend!


I’m gonna post the full recipe tomorrow, so be sure to check it out!

I’m feeling better, just a stuffy nose and slight cough at this point.

Ang – Sprouts has the beef on sale.

Jamie – Make sure you are on the grocery ad list for the local places, because that’s how found this deal!

Forgot to ask earlier, what’s the tattoo on your foot? I love it!

Thanks! It says “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” from Psalm 119:105. I got it five years ago this last April.

That was the first bible verse I recited at my childhood Lutheran church! Forgot that’s what your tattoo said, but love it!

Wow! I am impressed with your doings! Especially the edible ones!

bad thing is i don’t know what i good deal is or not πŸ™‚

Ha! If that’s the case, I can email you when something is a good deal. πŸ™‚

Okay so I’m super late with this, but I just have to comment and say how great you look in that dress! So pretty!

And girl, I wish I could find grass fed beef for $3.99/lb! I’d buy 20 pounds of it too, haha! Seriously!
