A Trip to the Farmer’s Market. AKA Disney World for Foodies.

I’ve been anxiously waiting for the Farmer’s Market to be open during the week. I’m fine with it on the weekends, of course, but something about a mid-week trip screams, “I’M ON TOP OF THE WORLD!” Actually, I think that was Leonardo DiCaprio, but whatever.

Off to the farmer’s market! And I don’t even have makeup on. Yay for life! (Did she really just say that?)

When we were in Florida on vacation, (don’t give me that look) the ladies of the group decided to part with the surfing men for an afternoon and have a nice lunch together.

Gorgeous. Day. The sort of day perfect for a run, a smidge of yard work, reading a book outdoors, thrifting tank tops for upcoming beach vacation, and a nap. While the nap has yet to happen, I’m sure it will be lovely when it gets here. I guess by then it will be called sleep. […]

Wow, what a day for the books, huh? Half the country spent the afternoon huddled under stairs in their basements. Oprah had her final episode and the world stopped in their tracks to view it. American Idol will pick a new winner, launching a career for a ripe youngin’ into superstardom. I washed my hair. […]

I’m not gonna lie to you. I never got out of my robe today. I knoooow, I knoooow. I have an excuse though! It rained all day. What, not good enough? Let’s see, what about this: all my house work was done? Um, okay. What about: I needed to slow-roast tomatoes today, and that required […]
