What Do You Splurge On?

Hi 🙂

I went to a great Bikram Yoga class this morning! I’m one of those students who gets frustrated if the room isn’t hot enough.

Well… today IT. WAS. HOT. I loved it! Now I just need to focus on rehydrating!

On my way home I made a stop at Whole Foods. We didn’t need a ton of food… just a few things to make it to the weekend.

Speaking of Whole Foods… does anyone know when Kombucha will be back? Every time I go I walk down the old Kombucha aisle, only to be disappointed 🙁 sniff sniff…

I got some Veggie Straws and Navel oranges! Yes… I know the bag is open (I tore into them as soon and I got home)… and I know these are a glorified potato chip, but I love em’ 🙂


Annie’s Graham Bunnies for M 🙂

Whole Milk yogurt for M 🙂

Sugar snap peas for me 🙂 I LOVE THESE!!!

And Crofter’s for the whole family 😉

I got requests to post the pics of M eating the popsicles I made.

Ummm…. I’m pretty sure she liked them 😉

So… back to the title of this post….

What do you splurge on?

When I talk about splurging… I’m referring to things you make a choice to sacrifice and spend more on.

My splurges are Bikram Yoga, and organic fruits and veggies.

I discovered Bikram about seven years ago. I immediately became hooked. Its expensive… but to me, its worth the sacrifice. I feel so good both inside and out.

As far as organic fruits and veggies go… I do my best to buy organic when I can. Especially since I have M now. She loves berries and I almost always buy organic.

What about you? What do you splurge on?

    We splurge on FOOD. We do try to buy mostly organic, it just depends. 🙂

    She is so stinkin’ cute. Where did you get the popsicle sticks to make the homemade style?? I splurge on Greek Yogurt. I love Chobani, so I try to always have a coupon when I buy it.

    Seriously, you have the CUTEST daughter on the face of the planet. Hand’s down!!!!! I splurge on good, quality food. I buy organic vegges/fruit, but also grass-fed meat. Okay, fine, I also splurge on high heels 😉

    I need to get back to Bikram…but you’re right…the classes are a bit pricey. I should just buy a pass to my local studio and just do it!

    Thanks for sharing the pics of your daughter…she always makes me smile.

    So cute!

    I splurge on my food purchases. I choose Greek yogurt over regular yogurt and organic fruits and veggies when it’s worth it (produce without skin) and on gym memberships. Can’t put a price on your health!

    M is seriously the cutest baby 🙂 Those faces…she is just darling!! I want to baby sit!!

    I splurge on gym memberships and organic foods, too…especially meats, dairy, and produce.

    I splurge on yoga as well, it’s so important for both my mind and body. I also go for organic goat dairy products and organic fruits and veggies when I can.. exercise is my number one splurge though

    Oh my… M looks so cute.. and she looks like she is enjoying her pops 🙂

    I splurg on my organic fruits and veggies as well, and free range, organic meat for the hubs.

    I also splurge on organic foods and workout classes.

    I splurge on healthy foods. I LOVE strolling the aisles of Whole Foods just to try something new.. and I’ll buy fresh fruits and veggies no matter HOW cheap frozen is. It’s just so much tastier. Good work on getting in your yoga early. Now if I can just get motivated to running on this cloudy day..

    My splurges…organic fruits/veggies/meat, boot camp class, almond butta, locally made bread. Yum.

    I splurge on yoga too! It is SO expensive, but SO good for me, so I think it is worth it…I also splurge on fun/gourmet foods once in a while (well, I try to keep it once in a while!)

    She is just too sweet! Sadly, my splurge is coffee, fruits and vegetables. I have to have good coffee or it is worthless!

    i ADORE those veggie straws! so so so good 🙂

    i would say i try to splurge on whole foods (not the store, just foods in their whole, natural form). which i know shouldn’t be a splurge, but on my salary…yeah 🙂

    Beautiful photos Estela!

    I splurge on food and coffee – so funny that food is a common splurge item among your readers! 😉 I also splurge on manicures/pedicures and skincare/fragrance products- those are truly my weakness!

    I would rather scrimp a bit on clothes/accessories and spend my money at the grocery store.

    Great post!

    Every time you post pictures of your daughter I just can’t help but SMILE 🙂 She’s so precious, and yes, she LOVED those popsicles, clearly!
    I am similar to you in that I splurge on healthy foods, typically organic fruits and veggies (on the dirty list) and organic milk products. I also splurge on gym memberships (well, not yet, but soon!) and my hair. hehe, I gotta get that yearly conditioning and straightening, which is expeeeensive, plus cuts every 6 weeks!

    She is so adorable!! I’m having a little family barbecue get together on Thursday, and I’m actually thinking of doing the blueberry & banana pops even though it’s just adults! 🙂

  18. Natalie said on June 29, 2010 at 9:09 pm

    And I also meant to say that I splurge on manicures & pedicures! I make sure to budget that in!

    splurge = my new tattoo. it’s gonna cost me and arm and a leg and that’s ok!

    and what you said about shopping to me, it’s just different w/ a kid, you think differently. YES!

    I know, I’m looking for Kombucha at WF and Sprouts to no avail.
    I splurge on our fancy gym membership, gourmet-ish foods, wine, and Kombucha!
