Ran on TM -
Surprising no one, I ran a few early am miles this morning while watching the news at the gym. Gotta start the day off right or the whole world might tilt off its’ axis.
Yesterday I went to Costco to pick up ONE thing (Brita water filters) and price ONE thing (some sort of saw for the man). Yeah, we all know how that turned out…
Oh, hi friends.
Perrier-Jouet is my favorite pricey champagne (the man bought it for my birthday last year). It’s $37 right now at Costco and last year it was $29.99 with two glasses. I almost bought a bottle to celebrate tonight but then remembered we don’t have anything to celebrate.
Instead I won the game of “spend the most amount of money for the least amount of things” –$193. winning!
At least I remembered the water filters this time.
And the Christmas cards.
By the way, Costco is really affordable for photo cards: $14.99 for 50 with envelopes and they’re ready in less than 24 hours. Just make sure to double check the size of the card: I didn’t and ours are so big, they look like a 9×13 close up headshot of us. oops.
Bought my man an early Christmas gift – these soft pretzel rolls are so good they should be in everyone’s stockings, even the naughty kids. Heated up with a little salt and butter, they taste just like a pretzel. My sister-in-law introduced me to them and she will most definitely be getting an autographed headshot as a thank you.
Also picked up a little protein…
Here’s your health tip of the day: try to eat wild salmon when you can. “Atlantic salmon” is farm raised; Pacific salmon is wild.
Notice the color difference between the wild salmon on the left and the farmed on the right? Wild salmon get their red color from the shellfish and certain insects in their diet, but farmed salmon is naturally a grey hue so it’s dyed to give it color because their diet doesn’t include the same things.
Although it’s more expensive, wild salmon has more omega-3 fatty acids, less total fat, no antibiotics, pesticides or food colorings.
And that ends my PSA for commercial fishermen.

What’s one thing you always buy at Costco or another warehouse store? One thing you never buy there?
I always buy feta cheese, Greek yogurt and apples at Costco; they’re a great price and I can go through them before they expire.
I usually don’t buy hummus there because I like the Trader Joe’s brand better.
