Top Fall Trader Joe’s Products

We absolutely love Trader Joe’s.  We don’t do all of our grocery shopping there, but we go to TJ’s once or twice a month to stock up.  One of our favorite times to go to Trader Joe’s is during the fall season when all of the seasonal fall items are in.  Trader Joe’s has so many fall and pumpkin flavored items!  It can actually be a bit overwhelming when looking at these product,  but you’re bound to find something you like.  We thought it would be fun and helpful to share with you our top fall Trader Joe’s products!  Let’s get into our picks!

Baking, Shopping, & Eating

With Rachel being home for Easter weekend, we were able to spend the whole day together on Friday.  We both love baking, so we started off our morning by baking some donuts.  We tried out two donut recipes from Sally’s Baking Addiction.  You can find the chocolate donut recipe here and the funfetti donut recipe here.

We had a lot of fun making these donuts and they were quite simple to make!  Our favorite were the chocolate glazed donuts.   We think the funfetti donuts would be better with less sprinkles in the batter.

After baking and breakfast, we planned on going shopping and out for lunch.  Here are our outfits from the day!

We headed to our local mall first for a little shopping.  American had BOGO so we couldn’t resist buying a few clothing items from there.  Michelle with being her indecisive self  decided to buy a new dress for Easter from Francesca’s.  We also made a stop at TJ maxx.  We each got a new small cross body purse.  Rachel stocked up on one of our favorite Dry Shampoos and Michelle bought an artificial flower arrangement.

For lunch we went to one of our favorite restaurants, The Loop.  Instead of ordering entrees, we decided to share some appetizers.  We went with chicken tenders, cheese curds and wings!  They were all very delicious.  Our favorite is definitely the cheese curds because they are served with siracha ketchup, which makes them so much better!  Needless to say, we were very full afterwards.

We’ve really been enjoying our weekend together!  It’s our last time together until Rachel is done with school for the year.  We can’t wait to spend the summer together! Keep an eye out for our Easter post tomorrow!
