Crow Burger

We rode our bikes down to Crow Burger last week and tried out their burgers with Shan and Justin. I have to say...not to shabby. They were super juicy and the menu was pretty interesting :)

Wedding Dress Necklace

Showcase a piece of your wedding dress lace on a necklace; it serves as a token of one of the most important days of your life and a reminder of the reasons you love your lovey. This makes me smile. If you don't have the time to make it yourself, The Lace Studio will make it for you! What a beautiful idea Liz Carter! She also has her own site at thelacestudio.com

A Day At The Farmers Market

We found a great farmers market at Soco! They are open every Saturday from 9:00-2:00. They have  lots of fresh local produce, a bunch of fun food trucks and homemade ice cream carts. You can also mosey on over to the mix shops inside. I tried a cara cara orange for the first time. They have "a flavor that evokes notes of cherry, rose petal, orange, and blackberry."- so says wikipedia. It was quite yummy.
