Wednesday's rAnDoM Obsessions

by Ally Harding, 5:00 AM
My mom has always said there are two people in life, those who eat to live and those who live to eat. I'm the latter by a long shot. I'm thinking about my next meal while I'm eating my first meal. I try to eat healthy and I love eating healthy but nothing beats just plain junk food. 

{Cape Cod Chicken Salad from Costco}

I'm addicted to this stuff. I swear I am. And now Theo's addicted too so we can't get rid of it. Every time we go to Costco we have to pick up a new tub. And every morning when I come home from work I always eat a healthy breakfast of cereal or a cooked egg but have to get a large spoonful of this chicken salad too. I'd say go out and buy it today you won't be sorry, which is 150% true, but then you'd too be addicted and be mad at me for your sudden weight gain. 

{Bark Thins Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seed}

Costco you're ruining me!! I picked this up from Costco this past weekend and it's so good. TOO good! It is dark chocolate so it's healthish, kind of, but it's like anything, eat in moderation. That word isn't part of my vocabulary so I just pick up a handful and eat until I'm not hungry anymore. Theo isn't a sweets person which you'd think I'd be all happy because that means more for me, but that's just it, Not good.

{Wild Mahi-Mahi Burgers}

You probably think all I eat is chicken salad and chocolate bark, which is true couldn't be farther from the truth. I also eat these delicious Mahi-Mahi burgers from Costco. They're very yummy and easy to make. Between Theo and I one is eaten daily. They're frozen so you either cook them in the frying pan for a few minutes or throw them on the grill. They're low in calories and high in Omega-3's.

{New Belgium Pumpkick}

Funny story, a few weeks I went to Total Wine and picked up a random array of pumpkin beers. I had one left and kind of forgot about it. All the beers were different brands by the way. We were in Atlanta 2 weekends ago and ate at Mellow Mushroom and I ordered a pumpkin beer called Pumpkick. It was so good and to me the perfect pumpkin beer. Fast forward to last Friday night, I opened the fridge to have the one pumpkin beer left I knew was in the fridge and guess what beer it was?! Pumpkick!! If you love pumpkin beers and haven't tried this one yet you're missing out. It's not overbearing with pumpkin flavor but just the right amount. 

{Chesapeake Bay Candle Pumpkin Pie}

 I found this candle on the sale rack at TJ Maxx the other day and although candles rarely smell in my house I figured what the heck, might as well try it. It must of been my lucky day because I brought it home and lit it and I could smell it throughout my house! Happy day! Sometimes pumpkin candles can smell fake and too sweet but this one smells perfect. Reminds me of Yankee Candle's Spiced Pumpkin but for a fraction of the cost.

Before OctNOber and NOvember came along I bought these super cute shoes from TJ Maxx. They're DVF so normally much more expensive but I got them for a great price. I had always wanted a cute pair of red flats to wear as a pop of color and  was so happy to find these!

{Ella Moss Jane Doe Mixed Print Shirt}

This is something I don't own but wish I did! I've been on an animal print kick lately so of course I was drawn to this shirt. I first saw it on one of my girl crushes, Betty Draper now Francis aka January Jones, did you get that?

I really love her whole outfit.

I saw this floating around and Pinterest and felt like it was made for us bloggers.

That's all I've got for you today!

  1. the dark thins look amazing - gotta love Costco!

  2. I love chicken salad so much, so I can understand your obsession. I always get the rotisserie chicken salad from Fresh Market. We don't have a Costco; otherwise I would be running to the store to try that ASAP!

  3. Costco is the best, those bark things looks amazing. I'm with you, I live to eat! Anytime we go out of town I literally plan our days around where we're going to eat at. Zack things I'm crazy, I have reservations set up and everything to be sure I don't miss a meal.

  4. Those bark thins sound right up my alley! Yum! I love that printed top too!
