First Things First
I am back in San Diego. And I love being home. This picture is actually a self-portrait from me from my soon-to-be-new-home’s balcony.
Or take with my iPhone + gentle Lightroom 3 editing
After a weekend with my huge camera in Mexico, I rolled with the iPhone cam yesterday afternoon.
Where does any person who’s been on U.S. soil for an hour and who’s getting ready to move residences in the next 28 hours go?
Trader Joe’s, of course.
Just seeing sunny blue skies and all this makes me happy.
I mentioned that Mexico was full of meat + cheese + fried foods. Not my scene, at all.
I needed Sugar Snap Peas
Don’t doubt my love for the sugar snappies and everything I love to dip them into.
And I could have bought and bought and bought new-to-me products.
But I didn’t. I’m moving Wednesday morning!
This is my baking cupboard photo in the new house that I posted to Instagram
And this is what my life looks like. Boxes. I fill them up, take carloads over to the new place, unload, come home. Repeat.
What would be awesome would be to plow through a Magic Eight Bar
Or maybe just even roll with a peach banana colada smoothie that I make myself.
Being back home, having my kitchen functional again, getting unpacked, settled, it will be such a great feeling!
Thanks for the compliments on my last round of Mexico City pictures. Thank you, so much, to everyone who has commented, complimented me, mentioned that you have noticed my growth photographically, and just the overall praise. I am humbled. Thank you!
1. What’s the first thing you do, or what are a few of your first things first, when you return home from a trip?
Brush my teeth, wash my face, go grocery shopping, start a load of laundry, unpack my suitcase immediately. I can’t stand things just lingering and waiting for me in my suitcase. I also am that person that washes dinner party dishes at 2am because I could not imagine dealing with them the next day, either.
2. Are you on Instagram?
I have had my iPhone for months now but never really utilized the iPhone camera, and really didn’t jump on board the Instagram bandwagon either, until this past week but have seen how:
Many of my friends use IG
How easy it is
How functional it is
And how fun it is!
I like IG wayyyy better than Twitter.
3. Any TJ’s products you just have to have?
There are so many of them and I have done posts on some of my fave TJ products (here for example are a few things), but yesterday it was all about the sugar snap peas. And the chocolate chips!
