Free Bee Fabulous Friday and a Winner!

I have to admit that the giveaway winner totally slipped me mind!  Please forgive me for taking so long.  But with no further delay, the winner of the onesie, tote or toddler tshirt is Aimee Mayer!  Please email me your shipping info :)

I also decided that today would be a great day to do a free bee fabulous Friday.  On Wednesday, my mom and sister and myself made a trip to Richmond, Va.  It was in the low 90's and we went shopping at some outdoor malls.  We went to one called Stony Point and they had an Anthropologie right beside a Starbucks, which was right in front of a little kids water area.  Caleb loved watching all the kids run around getting squirted with the water shooting up from the concrete and I just don't know if it gets any better than anthro and Starbucks right beside each other!!!  After that, my mom took us to Trader Joe's.  It was such a neat grocery store.  I walked out with real fruit gummies for Caleb (of which he LOVES) and it is real fruit that is dried and cut into little pieces.  So much better for him than the old fruit gummies.  I also got a bag of dried mango with chili pepper on sounds weird but you must try it before you diss it.  I also got freeze dried mango...delicious...can you tell I like mango?  Then, my mom got dried hibiscus flowers and they were edible and so yummy.  She also got a box of amazing granola and my sister got dried white peaches and despite the fact that when she opened the package in the car it smelled like stinky feet, they were actually very tasty.  So, my wish for free bee fabulous Friday is that a Trader Joe's would come to my town!!!  I would just shop at their grocery store because I LOVE it!!!  Have any of you been to a Traders Joes?  Did you like it as much as I did?
Happy Friday everyone- tomorrow is Saturday and that means you can yardsale, sleep in, meet a friend for coffee, take a walk or have a picnic!  Whatever you do, I hope you have fun and I hope you take a picture and blog about it for all of us :)

Ciao for now,

It's not Trader Joe's, but I heard recently that Fresh Market is coming in August. I've never been to one, but I'm excited for the possibility. Also, have you been to the Farmer's Market in Dekalb?

I've never been to Trader Joe's but I hear about it all the time. Sounds like you got some interesting goodies. :)

LOVE Trader Joe's! We had one in Cincy, and I would go all the time. Wish there was one here in Louisville...wait, maybe there is? Gotta look that one up! Hope all is well!

We just got a Trader Joe's close to my house! I'm thrilled, the next closest one was 45 minutes away (but still worth the drive). If you like dark chocolate, try the chocolate covered pomegranite seeds! :)
