My One Moment came this past week when I asked the man to pick up some fruit at the grocery store so that I could make some fruit salad for a Memorial Day cookout. He was a good boy and went to the store last minute for me. He got all of the fruits I asked for and more... but I was surprised when that man walked through the door with a legit pineapple pineapple (not precut but rather spiky). I have never cut into a pineapple before. My immediate response was to be irritated at him because he didn't get the pre-cut pineapple. Guh, what a raging maniac I can be. He went to the store for me on a Holiday weekend. If that's not love, I don't know what is. Thankfully, I didn't vocalize my irritation.

I more voiced it in a "I don't know how to cut a pineapple" kind of way... we would figure it out. We inherited a Pampered Chef Tomato knife that did the trick and don't you know that fresh pineapple is like the yummiest in the world? My One Moment this week, if you hadn't noticed, was me catching myself being ungrateful of someone who does a lot for me. Thank you pineapple (oh and Thank you Brandon).

*OM is a weekly meet up that promotes living in the moment. Whether funny, sad, ridiculous, or banal, actively looking for and sharing these moments will promote balance in our lives.


  1. Fresh pineapple is the BEST!! Chris is highly allergic so we can't enjoy together :( But, I love love love it. (The pineapple, not his allergy).

  2. Oh, I also meant to mention that Brandon is a sweet man :)

  3. I love pineapple! Funny story, I brought one home Dan asks "what are you going to do with it?" I said "well, dear, I'm going to cut it up and eat it." He said "I meant is it for snacking or for cooking. You know, am I allowed to eat it?" I think I needed your OM moment!

  4. Oh, yes! Fresh pineapple is the best. I learned to cut one from a friend and having buying the prickly little bastards ever since. Your man did you a favor, LOL!

  5. That is so bizarre to me you've never cut one before! I eat at least one pineapple a week - I love them! Be sure to enter my £100 ASOS giveaway!
