If you’re ever wondering if karma is a real thing, let me tell you something: it’s real.
This past weekend, I went to the grocery store and the cashier that was ringing me up rang me up twice for yeast. I told her she rang me up twice and so she voided it. She was holding polenta in the other hand and I guess she thought she rang it up and she just threw it in my bag. Now at this point, I feel like since it was only $3, I could’ve easily ‘pretended’ she rang it up and it wasn’t a huge loss to the store BUT that’s unethical and morally corrupt because if I can make a $70 grocery run, I can afford the $3, so naturally, I told her that she forgot to ring up my polenta. She said, “no honey, I’m pretty sure I did!” and I told her to scroll up and she was like, “oh wow, you know, I like you.” I left the store with some really good juju.
10 minutes after I got home from the store, I received a text from one of my instructors from the Pure Barre studio saying she had found an extra Pure Barre water bottles and asked if I wanted it.
How do these two stories relate?
Well, a few weeks back, I went to get a pedicure and I brought my Pure Barre water bottle with me (and mind you, I drink water A LOT and this water bottle for some reason made me drink water more because of the wide-mouth opening) and then accidentally left it there. I went back four hours later and it was “gone” and they couldn’t find it anymore :( now, I wish I could give people the benefit of the doubt but c’mon..who would steal a water bottle?! So I was pretty upset by this and the fact that every Pure Barre studio was sold out of this water bottle..I couldn’t replace it so I had to go back to using one of my other water bottles.
You see how this story ties in? I’d like to think my genuine honesty to the cashier ultimately was rewarded when my Pure Barre instructor just ‘randomly’ found a water bottle in stock at the studio. I mean, really, coincidence? Maybe. But I like to think that it was karma and no good deed goes unnoticed!
Probably one of the littlest known facts about me is my love for technology. I mean, we all know I love food but you probably didn’t know that I’m a huge nerd, did you? I love to code and I love having geeky conversations with fellow web developers about the up and coming technologies, what platforms they use and all this random mashup of stuff that normal people wouldn’t care about. I get giddy on the inside when I find…Read More
Recently, I’ve been having a major hair stylist dilemma and I don’t know what to do so maybe YOU can help me! Basically, my current hair stylist is amazing and I love her and we’re actually good friends (I think that’s also part of the problem in this equation). She recently went on an entrepreneurial endeavor and opened up her very own salon! Yay! The problem, you see, is that the past three times I saw her, she ran 30-40…Read More
Today’s installment of Beyond the Table might be a bit lengthy but I promise you it’s all worth it ;) I just have to much to talk about! Is that not the most epic groom’s cake you’ve ever seen? It’s called “Junk Food” cause our friend loves, well, junk food! I think our friend Josh wins the award for most epic groom’s cake ever! I recently read three books (a series) that captivated me and I cannot get these books…Read More
Most kiddos are already back to school but where I live, we don’t go back to school until the day after Labor Day. I honestly have always thought that was normal just because of where I grew up but I guess we’re really different from the rest of the country! I can’t believe it’s already another start to a new school year and I can’t believe it’s already time for apples :) my favorite fruit! When I was young, I…Read More
You won’t believe what I ended up doing yesterday. After my gripes about how I don’t want Fall/Winter yet and how I want summer to last longer…I went shopping with my girlfriends and I ended up buying a winter coat. Not just a light Fall coat but a full-on, puffy winter coat that looks like the Michelin man and it is the warmest thing ever. I’m such a hypocrite. It’s so hard to not buy Fall/Winter stuff when they’re everywhere in…Read More
I’ve ordered a bunch of loungewear lately and I think I’m just subconsciously preparing myself for the cooler weather. I live in leggings and flowy tops in the Fall/Winter (probably partly to hide all the hibernation eating I do, haha). The cold weather just makes me not want to do anything but curl up on the couch with a good book! I have a feeling that this Fall/Winter I will be devouring a ton of books. Just within the past…Read More
