Life Lately: A Peek into Randi's Journey

It's me, Randi, back with the personal life updates you've all been waiting for. Buckle up, as we are diving deep into the rollercoaster ride that has been my journey of late. We share, we grow, and we lift each other up, don't we?

Taking a Stand Against Shrinkflation

In an act of consumer rebellion, I am refusing to buy PepsiCo products. The shrinkflation tactic, where the quantity decreases while the price remains the same, has left me disheartened. Facing escalating grocery prices amidst economic turmoil bothers me, and it should bother you too! Now more than ever, the divide between the affluent and the underprivileged is stark. We need to push back!

Mommy's Night Out!

Breaking the everyday monotony, I recently had a fantastic'moms night out' at our local hot springs. Trust me, pushing past the social anxiety was worth every moment. I left feeling lighter and invigorated, validating the age-old adage that self-care isn't selfish.


Reading Is My Happy Place

Now, onto some nerdy news: I conquered my 2023 reading goal with a whopping 160 books and a total of 59,104 pages! Talk about a ‘novel' achievement, right? (This count doesn't include the handful that I left halfway—not every story enthralls us!)

I can't live without my Kindle, found here.

I use the GoodReads app to keep track of all my reading.

Popcorn Flick: Rebel Moon

For all my fellow Star Wars and Vikings aficionados, I wholeheartedly recommend the new movie “Rebel Moon.” I'm eagerly counting days for parts 2, 3, and 4—a cinematic journey you don't want to miss!

Falling Victim to Delivery Theft

In a rather shocking incident, the delivery person stole our Walmart delivery order. A deliberate blank photo confirmed our fears. While this didn't impact us significantly, I can't ignore the potential distress it could cause others, especially with Walmart's up-to-30-day refund policy. It's frustrating how some individuals can disregard the consequences of their actions for others.

I have to say Walmart handled it swiftly and gave me a refund immediately. 

Anticipating Milestones

Phew! Time flies. My eldest is turning 18 in just 4 short months, with senior high school graduation just around the corner. I can't believe I'm about to be the parent of an adult. Deep breaths, Randi. The mixed bag of emotions is real, y'all!

Date nights + Friendships

A Broadway Experience

On a brighter note, I had an absolute blast at the Broadway play Six. The retelling of Her Story struck a chord—here's to more stories where women refuse to be defined by men.

Winter Shenanigans

Lastly, I had a hearty laugh tumbling down a people mover, landing in a snow tube, and riding it uphill during a recent sled trip with close friends. The laughter, sled rides, and candid photo captures – ah, memories made!

And that’s my life snapshot for you! It’s eventful, sometimes stressful, but overall, a rewarding journey. Remember, my dear savvy shoppers, when life gives you lemons, make some tangy lemonade, take a sip, and strut your way through your highs and lows. Until next time, keep shining!

Love, Randi.
