labor day weekend is over. and all weekend long i kept saying memorial day. i think that is a sure sign that summer went by waaaaaay too quickly. there were so many things that i had on my list to get done that just well...didn't.
september....my gateway drug to fall is kicking me into full pumpkin spice mode. i can't help it. i absolutely love fall. sweaters? yes. boots? check. food? check. love love love it.
anyway lets not get ahead of ourselves shall we? lets start with this amazing weekend. try to keep up.
friday night was spent at home in byron center. joe and i made this amazing pasta (i made it, joe cut veggies). the veggies came from our garden and the cheese and pasta noodles came from the local epicurean (we'll talk about that place in a later post. o.m.g) we hung out at home and just relaxed a bit.
saturday morning hauled the camper to the allegan county fairgrounds for the second to last allegan of the season. we set up, shopped, set up some more, shopped. around 3pm it started down pouring so i headed home to shower and relax before a fun night of birthday partying.
around 7pm we headed to our friends house to celebrate our friend chips 40th birthday party. we met so many new fun people, had AMAZING macaroni bar (dann, you outdid yourself) had whiskey peach tea and mouth drooling carrot cake. it was such a good party with such good people.
sunday morning lisa and i headed to allegan fairgrounds around 5am. yes 5am. we had to finish setting up (and shopping) due to the rain. we had what i believe is the perfect weather for a flea market. breezy, sunny, and mild 75. we had fun seeing all our friends and customers over the holiday and were exhausted after a long fun day at the market.
as soon as the show was over we dumped the camper off at the house and headed straight to pentwater.
we met up with some friends at the antler for 50 cent wings (and i had a salad i'm getting too old for massive amounts of fried food) (ok so i had three wings and a salad). we hung out on the deck chatting and catching up before we headed home around 11pm.
sunday morning like a crazy person i woke up at 5am (again) and headed to a flea market. on my way i had two of those starbucks energy drink. holy moly i was flying around that place. i got in early because the market didn't start until 830 and i got there around 630. it cost me 20 bucks to get in early (stupid) but it was fun to run around shopping with my flashlight. well, all was fun and games until my flashlight caught some guy taking a crap in the woods. ah yep. disgusting. i don't think he was expecting anyone to be shopping that early. haha jokes on you foo. a little jaded i kept shopping. i can't wait to show you some of my finds!
the market wasn't very big but i still managed to find a bunch of goodies. i got back to pentwater at 11:30 where i shared a hand pie with my hubby (there was an amish village near the market and i couldn't help myself). for those of you who are not in the know, these hand pies or sometimes called fried pies are small individual fold over pies that are deep fried instead of baked and then dipped in glaze. so they are like a cross between a pie and a jelly donut. and full of amazingness.
we hung around pentwater all day, took a bike ride, grabbed some lunch, watched a move when it got stormy, took another walk and relaxed. we stopped in hart for pizza on our way home and totally crashed around 10pm (aka the second we walked in the door).
it was such a good long weekend! i hope you all had a fabulous labor day!!!!
