To Market, To Market.

Wow, a two week blogging drought. You can probably guess why I have been MIA from the blogosphere lately. Yeah, I have been working a lot. I did escape my laptop for awhile last weekend to go to Bean's first birthday (awesome recaps here, here, and here) and had a wonderful dinner at Mastro's in Beverly Hills with some of my favorite girls from work last night.

After all the go, go, go, I was SO looking forward to sleeping in this morning. It has been over a month since I have had a free Saturday morning, so I was well overdue for a nice, long sleep. Giddy, I came home from dinner, slipped into my pajamas, and crawled into bed at 11 o'clock.

I woke up this morning, groggy, thinking it must be at least 1 p.m. I reached for my Blackberry to check the time (yes, it's on my nightstand -- sad, I know), and it was only 9 o'clock!! I used to be able to sleep well into the afternoon. Looks like I am losing the magic...

On the bright side, I felt well-rested and still had the whole day in front of me!

I got dressed, and Josh and I headed to the Calabasas Farmers' Market, our new Saturday morning tradition.

It's such a fabulously grey and drizzly day, so it almost felt like we were back in the Northwest.

I was really excited to find a bunch of baskets of different types of lettuce leaves.

We had to come home with a bag.

Everything was so fresh. I have never seen Josh so excited about vegetables. :)

And, of course, we loaded up on Josh's favorite food in the world: potatoes.


The Farmers' Market is a lot bigger than I thought it would be. It had little restaurant booths in addition to local produce.

Josh said it reminded him of Oly. It reminded me a little of the produce stands in the Campo where I lived in Rome. Either way, we both agreed that we would be back next weekend!

Ugh, that not-being-able-to-sleep-in crap is happening to me too! Let's not grow up any more, k?

better to have the crackberry on the nightstand instead of actually cuddling with it in bed. yeah, i don't know anyone who has done that [insert sarcastic tone here] :P

i <3 farmer's markets! that one looks like a good one :)

First of all, the pictures of the kabobs made me hungry! Secondly, Highlights is not nerdy! I enjoyed them myself, or should I say "ENJOY" them! I still like to do the picture finds! (Now THAT is nerdy!)

Lovely photos! I look forward to the weather changing so we can start going to the Farmer's Market. There is a great one in Studio City.
