Weekend: Farmer’s Market, Photo Shoots, Yummy Food
I’m so happy it’s June. June is my second favorite month of the year (after October, which is the best month). This graphic is from my planner and I’m in love with it.
Both Saturday and Sunday morning started with oatmeal for breakfast. I cook oats in milk, thinly slice in a banana, throw in some blueberries, and then whisk constantly until it’s thick and creamy.
Topped with cinnamon-sugar + peanut butter. And one day I added granola because I wanted a CRUNCH.
Saturday morning I went and moved my body and then met my sisters at the best Farmer’s Market in the city, Urban Harvest. The sister in middle is finishing up P.A. school soon and moving to D.C. in July so she can be with her husband who is working up there. Gonna miss having her so close, but happy her + Marco will be reunited.
Also. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this on the blog before, but I constantly find money on the ground. At least every other month. It’s ridiculous and I feel like I’m being tested by the universe every time it happens. My new rule of thumb is, “If it’s more than $20 you have to make an effort to find the owner. If it’s less than $20 it’s fair game and you can keep it and pay-it-forward somehow.”
At the Farmer’s Market I found $60 on the ground. And immediately started laughing bc I ALWAYS FIND MONEY! My sister’s and I decided to return it to the market Info Booth for them to use as a donation or in case someone came looking for it. I feel like since it was sixty bucks someone totally could’ve looked for it at the info booth.
After that we all got coffees.
Iced decaf caramel latte for me that ended up being way to sweet for my preferred coffee taste to caramel taste ratio, but it was still tasty :)
Then we all ordered something from a booth and shared everything: a quiche, a sourdough sandwich with cashew cheese + peaches + basil + orange marmalade, and a donut.
At the market I also got a veggie pot pie to eat for a dinner later this week and tasty Texas peaches.
After the farmer’s market I headed to the grocery store to get the grocery shopping done for the week.
I ended up getting two recipe photo shoots done this weekend. This Wednesday is my birthday and since I want to take most of my bday off I worked ahead a bit.
Lunches throughout the weekend were…
salad + chips
pizza + salad
Andrew and I had some level of nasty, awful, miserable gastroenteritis last week. I blame a new Mexican restaurant we tried. AHHH why did we have to feel adventurous that night?! So I was so happy we were both feeling better by last Friday. I went and saw my OB mid-week to make sure everything was okay, she assured me it was. But blah it was terrible.
The majority of weekend snacks involved chocolate covered almonds :)
Also this weekend I found a new show on Netflix called Shark Men. I love sharks. Sharks and horses (and Maggie) are the coolest animals.
Saturday night we headed to dinner at my parent’s house. My mom made a fabulous 4-course meal:
incredible watermelon + avocado + salt/pepper cream cheese salad
scallops + pasta
+ two more courses I forgot to photograph. My drink was sparkling juice (they had it specifically for prego me), while everyone else enjoyed wine.
…and my sister had a birthday gift for me since I won’t see her on my actual birthday. One of the things she got me was this awesome pillow for me during labor/delivery since she won’t get to be there and after labor/delivery for baby. I love it so much <3
Sunday afternoon I had plans to get coffee with a new friend, but insane rain and flash flooding ruined those plans:/ Decaf latte at home it was!
Sunday night we headed to Andrew’s parents for dinner. Post storm sky…
Dinner was ribs + cole slaw + eggplant dish + corn. Dessert was blueberry hand pies with vanilla ice cream.
And finally, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to be for Halloween because I should have a large baby bump at that point. LOL about these. I can’t even with the pearl one!!
And that was our weekend. This week I’ve got a full week of clients, some blog posts I’m excited about sharing, and a fun day on Wednesday to celebrate my birthday. Hope you guys have got a great week ahead of you! If you don’t have a great week planned, I hope you can find a way to make it a great week.
As always, would love to see scenes from your weekend! Feel free to leave links to your weekend recaps if you have a blog :)
