Getting Fresh

I love getting up on Saturday mornings, skipping breakfast, and heading to the Durham Farmer's Market. I usually hightail it first to Angels Nest Bakery. The little guy loves their fresh cinnamon rolls (see pic) and I love their cream cheese braids, which typically go very fast. I also try to pick up some fresh tomatoes from Sunny Slope Farms and fresh mozzarella from Chapel Hill Creamery for a yummy salad with a little olive oil and basil. Yummy!

Then, we grab a cup of mint tea or strawberry lemonade and head over to the turtle to eat our breakfast. I hit the loop one more time to pick anything else up that looks yummy and once my cash is gone and my bag is full, we head home!

One of the local farmers has started a home delivery service and they deliver fresh fruits and veggies to your front porch weekly! How cool is that? I've signed up for it, but there is a wait list. You just get what they leave you and you get to be creative with recipes and figuring out what to do with your goodies! Anyone currently doing this and how do you like it?



  1. What a neat idea! I have never heard of that before! Probably wouldn't work for us...since the hubs detests veggies...but it sounds wonderful :)

  2. What a neat idea! We have food coops around here where you join and get to go pick up stuff bi-weekly, but none that I know of that drop it off. What a neat suprise you'd have weekly!

  3. I posted about my trips to the farmers market too..don't you love going. The Durham one is the best!
    Love the photos..your blog is really pretty. Hope you got my invite to mine. xxxxx me

  4. Home delivery sounds great but I'd probably be too picky to enjoy it all. Our local farmer's market should be starting here soon AND "The Amish Man" should be back with the fruits of his labors in a couple weeks... I'll be checking them out for sure.

    Love the picture of the veggies in baskets... so pretty!

  5. When I was living in SF they were a number of farm who did that. Many times a group gets together to do it. It is really fun but sometimes it is frustrating if you want a certain veggie and you don't get it so you have to go buy it anyway.

  6. What a great idea! I adore your pictures...

  7. Sounds like a perfect way to spend a Saturday morning!

  8. I love fresh produce! What a great delivery idea. Your pictures are great. :)

  9. I love the pictures! So pretty! I am definitely going to have to visit our local farmer's market!

  10. Looks divine. I love farmer's markets and was thrilled to read about one in my area each Saturday this summer. I hope my family loves it, too! I think cinnamon rolls would help immensley!

  11. three cheers to you for supporting local farmers and bakers!!!

    love it!

  12. I love that Turtle photo! All of the photos are pretty!

  13. I really enjoyed reading some of the posts in your blog...and I really enjoy our local farmers' market as well. Unfortunately, their basket deliveries aren't available where I live. Oh, well! At least, I get to enjoy the fruits of their labors anyway. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Love it! Also love how you made the pics look so pretty. We have a farmer's market in our neighborhood now. When you come for supper, we can have the kids make their own market bags.

    Talk soon,

  15. I have organic fruits and veggies delivered every two weeks, and it is mostly potluck. They do have a list of things we never want, but I get pretty creative with veggies. Just know you can cook pretty much anything in olive oil as a side dish or bake it with chicken!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
