Goooood morning, my dear! 🤗 How are you?
Here’s a not-so-pressing question for you on this lovely Caturday morning: Is grapefruit great or gross?
Inquiring minds want to know…
See, I grew up in a family in which everyone loved grapefruit, so it didn’t occur to me until adulthood that the grapefruit would be such a polarizing snack. 🤔
El Hub and Connor are not fans, and they make a point of telling me this whenever I eat one. So I’m the lone wolf grapefruit lover in our family.
I’ve been eating a ton of grapefruit lately. I’ve been in a grapefruit craving mode, and it’s been my favorite breakfast snack as of late…along with a chocolate croissant from Trader Joe’s! (Oh, my goodness, have you tried those?)
Obvs, a freshly baked chocolate bakery croissant is ideal, but if you can’t get ahold of one, the packaged ones in the bread section at TJ’s are pretty good. They’re so good, in fact, that sometimes I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and think to myself, “I wish I were eating a Trader Joe’s chocolate croissant right now…” #TruthBomb
OK, before I get too distracted, quick shout-out to this silicone-free Pantene conditioner I grabbed on a whim recently! I use it as a co-wash, but if you have fine hair, I think you might like it as a traditional conditioner too. It’s moisturizing, not heavy at all, and dang if my hair doesn’t smell like sweet cut grass and aloe afterward. I like it.
Well, my tummy is rumbling, and I need to get this chocolate croissant into my belly ASAP, so onward to this weekend’s reading!
