Well this is sort of creepy.  I have been complaining about my headache, and this just popped up as an ad:

Migraine Headache Clinic

Dr. Olsen is a migraine treatment specialist in Meridian, Idaho.

YIKES.  If you ever doubted the internet was watching you, there is proof :)

Anyway, if you know me, you know I *love* the grocery store.  In fact, I consider it one of my favorite places.  However, in Boise I don't like it quite as much.  It is difficult to find my favorite magazines, I can't find my favorite bottle of wine, and I am still learning where everything is.  I have also started bagging my own groceries (omg!) which is one reason I used to refuse to go to WinCo.  Not that I am too good for that, but I just couldn't handle the pressure of a bunch of people waiting for me to hurry up and bag.  At Albertson's, I actually do the self checkout and it is pretty fun!  I am starting to get used to it and it seems like that grocery store really encourages it, as they normally only have one checker.

Side note: I hate the produce selection at my Albertson's

So, I like grocery stores, I am getting used to mine, and to make it even better, Albertson's is having a McDonalds-esque Monopoly game.  I am pretty certain I won't win, but it makes it exciting to get my game tokens and check them out when I get home, and then tape them to my gameboard.  However, now I have so many that I keep getting duplicates, which is less exciting.  I also hate the $2 prizes.  You have to collect like five particular game tokens to win two dollars.  It kind of seems like a slap in the face.

Also, each game piece comes with a coupon.  You get a certain amount of game pieces depending on what you buy and how much you spend.  I usually get one or two.  The coupons are normally really lame and for things I would never buy (not to mention they are for a quarter off..not the best deal).

But, check out my most recent coupons!  I got them both at the same time, so I am convinced the checkers just get to give the special ones to the people they like the most (which yes, means I think they like me.  Haha).

TWO FRESH DONUTS! I actually do not like donuts and would never buy them on my own.  Okay, the issue is not I don't like them...I just don't like to eat them.  They are obviously not good for you and I try not to eat food like that very often.  It makes an especially awful breakfast.  But, there is no way I can let these go waste.  Depending on my day tomorrow, I might cash one of these babies in, or for sure when I get back from Moscow. I used to be a maple bar kind of girl, but I think I have migrated to loving jelly filled donuts (omg or bavarian cream!).  What kind of donut should I get??
I also bought these at the store.
I agonized over which ones to get, and to be honest, I have no idea why I ended up choosing these ones.  I always thought I was someone who was about a 6 on the how-spicy-I-like-my-food scale.  This week, I have learned I am more like a 3.  I wonder if something has changed?  I had soup at work and it was Minestrone, and it was too spicy for me to finish.  I got these pistachios and I HATE how spicy they are!  I have been picking them apart and avoiding the shell, but that is harder than you might think.  Ugh, completely the wrong decision.  Should have gone with sea salt and olive oil.

You are too funny Kelsey! I'm with you on the spicy stuff. I just don't understand how it can be enjoyable to eat something that hurts?? A little heat is good, but there should never be sweating involved in eating :)
