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! :-D 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 :-P
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! :-P
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 :)
