Grocery Shopping and Meal Plan – May 30

How is your Memorial Day going? We spent it having lunch at my parents’, fun fun.

So we still have no luck with finding a house. Luckily we have until September to be out of our apartment so hopefully one will come up soon.

In other news, I cut off all my hair and dyed it red. It’s nice to shake things up a bit now and then. There might be a picture on Instagram eventually. It took three dyeing attempts and my husband’s help to get it all covered somewhat evenly.

Also, thanks to the cantaloupe in the below picture, I managed to slice a few layers of skin off my finger. It was not ripe and super hard to cut. Luckily it’s mostly healed now.
