Vlog: Grocery Haul (Trader Joe's, Costco & Sprouts)

Happy June 1st!  Summer is almost here and the weather here in Colorado was amazing yesterday.  We took advantage of the beautiful day by grilling chicken skewers on the BBQ last night!
We enjoyed our skewers with a side of veggies and a bottle glass of wine.  I do not know about you, but grilling out without some sort of alcoholic beverage is like a PB&Jelly sandwich without the peanut butter.  

We adore wine, and tend to enjoy a glass or two on a bi-weekly basis. After lots of trial and error, I think we finally have found a brand that both Joseph and I really enjoy.   More often than not, if I am not drinking wine, I love sipping on some sort of Champagne Brut.  The drier the better when it comes to champagne; I am not a fan of the sweet sparkling ones.

BTW!  If you like to see a blog post about wines we love under $20, let me know below.  I would love to share our favorites with you!

On Friday, I shared a haul on the YouTubes.   Below is the video if you missed it, or you can watch it by clicking HERE!
I do not know if this is just me, but grocery haul videos are one of my favorite videos to watch.  I love seeing what people eat, where they go for their groceries, and how much they spend.  I am big on sticking to a weekly budget and tend to go to several places in order to be able to stick to it.  On this particular day, I made a trip to Trader Joe's, Sprouts Farmers Market and, Costco.  I also love getting some staple items from WholeFoods and sometimes Sam's Club, which I tend to frequent about twice a month. 
I might of had a couple cups of coffee prior to turning on the camera, not sure if you can sense the unexpected burst of energy and the extra chattiness on this video.  I am still a bit awkward with this whole YouTube thing, but at the same time I have been enjoying sharing and interacting with others on this "new to me" social platform.  If you have not yet, please subscribe to the channel HERE.

I hope you guys watch and enjoy!
How was your weekend?  Can you believe it is already June?
