The Little Things: Emily, 3.12.12.

So often, we get caught up in our day to day routines and forget to appreciate the little things in life.  In my Little Things series, I like to honor the details that are making me happy today. Now, I ask my readers to send me a photo and note about what is making THEM happy today.


Emily says,

I love dips.  Any kind, with any chip, cracker, or veggie.  But my favorite kind of dip came to me by a surprise.  When I was living in DC a few years ago for a summer, my friends and I happened upon chili con queso from Whole Foods, fell in love (more like, I became obsessed with it), and renamed it mexi dip to make it easier to reference.   That summer, I ate more containers of that stuff than I should have, but enjoyed every. single. scoop.  After returning home to the midwest, I craved it all of the time but didn’t have a Whole Foods near me.

Fast forward a few years to living in Madison, which has a whole foods. I was SO SO SO excited because I would be able to get my mexi dip fix!  The first time I went in there, I was so sad because they didn’t carry it :( Luckily, last summer I was able to make a visit to DC and come home with a few containers, but needless to say those didn’t last long.  It even earned it’s own blog post, here.

ANYWAYS, the point of this story being.  Yesterday I was in Whole Foods to pick up a couple things, happened to go down the refrigerated aisle, and this caught my eye.
