A Pretty Good Day

Today was a pretty good day.

It started out going to the Farmer's Market (one of my favorite summertime activities) with my mom and Nathan (he pretty much just slept the whole time in the baby carrier and I was reminded of what it was like to carry him around for 9 months). My feet and legs still ache from walking all over, but I got some great stuff and met some fun people.

This may sound a little weird ("Buttermilk syrup?!" I hear you saying), but it is delicious! And it should be. My mom figured that it was 3 WW points for half of a serving. So, I guess it's just a "sometimes food" as Cookie Monster would say. This person had some cool jewelry for sale, including this blank photo pendant. I'm going to use it to make a collage pendant. I'm excited to play with it.

The lady who makes these cute bags (which are completely reversible!) has a website,Ruthie Pearl, and an etsy shop where she sells her bags online. It looks like her etsy store is almost completely sold out right now, probably because she's been selling her lovely bags at the farmers' market. I think I'm going to go back and buy one of her big shopping bags too. This is a cute bag that goes across your chest. Love it!

I also met the lady who owns the Freshly Picked Etsy store and she's going to make me a wallet that will fit my camera! I think I want the one with the apples and the pears. Then I won't have to worry about getting the LCD screen scratched or damaged when I put it in my purse.

After all of the shopping fun, my mom and I had bratwurst sandwiches and Nathan got his bum changed and and a bottle of formula.

Later, my mom and I went to Western Gardens so she could buy some herbs and I saw my high school AP English teacher there. I got up the courage to talk to her (I don't know why I was shy, but I was), and I was glad I did. She was excited to find out that I'm an English teacher too. And she was happy that said "hello" to her.

Now, it is time to rest. I hope you all have a lovely night!

andria--thanks so much for your comment! it was lovely to meet you both as well. :) i'll see you sometime in the next couple of weeks. oh, i noticed that in your link to my site, there's a comma instead of a period. no biggie, just thought i'd mention it (so the link doesn't work)! i'm glad you love your bag! i'm going to check out your collages now.

i went to western garden like 4 days and bought flowers that still aren't in the ground yet! I hope they don't die before I get around to it. and maybe someday my mom will take ME to the farmer's market. she always goes with her sisters instead.
