This morning I went to a bridal shower for Laurie, an awesome girl I worked with in the marketing department when I interned at St. D. There were all kinds of great foods, including a chocolate fountain and mimosas!
Afterwards, I met up with my parents for a trip to Fresh Market where they were having a big weekend event to try try all of their holiday foods!
From the top: sweet potatoes, corn souffle, cranberry, turkey, dressing. I also tasted crab dip, brie and raspberry bake. So good!
Later, I went to Kroger for the Mega Deal sale... (Can you believe I'm excited about this? Who am I?) I'll show you ala Claire style.

Gotta say, this was actually a big bill for me. I budget about $40 a week for groceries and usually don't go over that, and some weeks I'm closer to $25. But, I got some things like Advil, Brita pitcher, and seasonal fun things like Silk Nog that made it more. Plus, this is actually groceries for me and my roommate (since I cook, I buy groceries and she'll give me money for part of it, etc.).
