My Everyday Life [Week 2]

Week 2 was a good one! 

I made overnight oats with organic frozen raspberries (they're finally back in stock at Costco) and goji berries. Such a good combination!
I finally got a haircut! Last time I had one was in September and I needed it refreshed so badly. I still cannot manage to get my hair to curl as well as my stylist does. 
We went to Illinois on Saturday. I enjoyed a delicious Earl Grey vanilla creme latte from Argo Tea. We don't have any Argos in our area, so I always like to head there when we go to Chicago.
On our way to Woodfield Mall, we passed up Salata and I figured that might be a great place for us to have lunch later on. Once we did some research on lunch spots in the area, Salata sounded perfect for a vegetarian and a pescatarian who is a bit picky (Craig). You can make a salad or wrap and choose from so many different toppings! 
Loved their mission statement of "eat good, look good, feel good."
We both LOVED our salads! The salad dressing we chose was Spicy Chipotle Ranch and it was amazing.
I had a bit of everything in mine and tried to add things I don't normally have in stock at home, like beets. I chose some pita chips as my bread and added baked tofu as protein.

We both really wish there was a Salata in the Milwaukee area. I'll be dreaming about that salad for the next month or trying to recreate it at home.
After lunch, we headed to IKEA. It was packed and we did not find much. We will likely invest in some more expensive furniture pieces vs. buying stuff that might fall apart pretty quickly. Craig and I did buy some CD/DVD storage shelves and when he put one together today, the back panel piece broke in half. I'm crossing my fingers that IKEA customer service comes through because we're not keen on making another four hour round-trip drive to the nearest location.

I tried this brand of pickles for the first time today! The company had sent me some coupons a long time ago and I finally found them at Target. Loved these because they were a bit spicy!
Not too much else to report about this week except that I finished the book Miss Jane and enjoyed it! Onto The Spy by Paulo Coelho next.

Hope you had a good week!
