Thank you all for your comments on my dress choices! Only a couple hours left and I think I just may have a winner!
Last night while at Joe & Kate’s rehearsal dinner, we got talking about our local Farmers Market and all the delicious goodies they always have. Usually, it’s a solo trip, or I’m lucky enough to have a friend join me, but today I was lucky enough to have a date! All it took was a little bribing convincing with iced coffees from Flavour Cafe, and he was sold.
Today’s market was hoppin’!
All of the vendors are starting to get a lot more produce, especially STRAWBERRIES!

Jay and I picked up LOTS of goodies today!
Carrots & Strawberries
Fresh basil & Kale (**I’ve never tried Kale before, so if anyone has any tips for cooking/preparing it, it would be MUCH WELCOMED!)
Sugar Snap Peas (YUMM-O!)
Fresh “His & Hers” rolls
His – Ciabatta
Hers – Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Walnut
Jay’s favorite purchase of the day…some seasoning rub! He is the grill master and all!
We also got persuaded into buying some handmade marshmallows. After trying some samples, we were SOLD! We bought a pack of their passion fruit marshmallows and we got some great ideas on how to incorporate them into some different dishes. I can’t WAIT to try them again!
We also picked up some wheat berries, which I have been wanting to try for a while now, but just never picked them up. They were only $2.00/lb which I was pretty sure was a good price? So I snagged some, and actually have them simmering as I type.
After enjoying the Farmers Market, as promised, I brought the hubby over for some iced coffees (like I really needed the convincing anyways) Today I got the Chocolate Raspberry & Jay got Sugar Cookie. Both are FAB!
While Jay was doing some vacuuming (he’s so good!) I volunteered to make some breakfast for him. I incorporated his ciabatta bread into a bacon egg & cheese sandwich. He was quite impressed…almost “restaurant quality”
I also had some fresh strawberries on the side. OH.MY.GOD…best strawberries I’ve had in MONTHS!!! So sweet, soft, & juicy…YUMM!
I’m hoping to get a run in at some point before heading out for the wedding later, but time is passing SO QUICK today! YIKES! I convinced my mom to do my hair for the wedding later (love having a hairdresser for a Mom!) so I’m heading over there before the festivities! Not sure if and when I’ll be back today, so hope you have a FABULOUS Saturday, and I’ll be sure to have lots to recap from the big night!
In honor of today’s wedding…what’s your favorite part of a wedding?
I love to watch the groom as soon as he sees his bride for the first time…it makes my heart melt every time! Besides that, I’d have to say the food & dancing
