My daughter goes back to Chicago this week after a beautiful six days of lunching, shopping and restyling my hair which was desperately needed.
Two little known facts about me - I hate shopping and I hate letting anyone cut my hair. Too many traumatic 'doos' in the past, I guess. Shopping is also torture, with two exceptions.
1. The Downtown Farmers Market and
2. Shopping with Lauren
Combine the two and I spend WAY too much money. Lauren is the Queen of Glam. She's REALLY good at the 'girlie' stuff (I'm not). So our Farmer's Market trip sort of ended up in a load of girlie purchases as she kept pointing out all these great bargains that I've overlooked in the past.
This is Lauren's idea of a great trip to the Farmer's Market.
I have to admit, this was a really cute bracelet at a bargain price of $10 - made by a really cute couple from Hawaii.
Aren't these great! Love the red and bone together. Fred has nicknamed them the 'poker chip' earrings. Also a $10 steal.
There was a little old man at the market selling his honeycomb. I didn't really need this but I kind of felt sorry for him. Any ideas of what I can do with this?
We bought some crusty bread and topped with all three of these beautiful pestos for our lunch when we arrived home.
