Happy hump day, y’all!
I cannot begin to tell you what a BLAST I’ve had these past few days with my unbelievable mother. She’s helped paint furniture, washed all of my windows, and even did some cooking that kept this healthy, happy Texan pleased (I’m sharing a fabulous salad she made with y’all tomorrow!!). She is such a model of generosity, selflessness, and southern grace; I couldn’t imagine a better mother to be raised by and friend to have now!
Enough of that, or I may get a little weepy….I won’t get to see her and the rest of my fam until Thanksgiving, which is a bummer but that’s life sometimes! I’m just grateful for the time I had with her this weekend.
So let’s talk Wal-Mart…it’s Wednesday after all…

As always, hopefully there is somethin' here that entices you this week at Wal-Mart. It's never a dull moment at that place, especially on the weekend. I was slightly horrified to see the Christmas trees already on display in the garden center, but, nonetheless, they continue to supply me with cheap, Paleo-friendly eats every week!
And remember, if you buy anything I've posted, please post it to Facebook or Instagram and tag me in it as a way to show me you liked it! Y'all rock, and have a rockin' rest of your week! Be well!
