Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

This past weekend mom + I went to:

  • Brother Juniper's for breakfast (the best ever!!!) The wait was almost an hour, so we went to the art store around the corner + they were closed for Memorial Day weekend- BUST!

  • We shared a waffle + the San Diegan (Rachael Ray's fav) YUM-O!!!  Their spreadable fruit is amazingly good (I had the blackberry).

  • The mall to get the coconut body butter @ The Body Shop, but ours is out of business- BUST!

  • Ken Rash's to get a hammock- They haven't sold them in 3 years, yet their website says they do- BUST! haha

  • We went on a search to find mom's old house she grew up in.  Here are the pics:

  • We eventually found a hammock stand at Dick's + a hammock @ Target

  • Stopped by the farmer's market to look at the flowers + guess what???  They have one of my favorite things EVER!!! Boiled Peanuts!!! YUM!!!  For those of you who don't know:

"Boiling peanuts has been a folk cultural practice in the south of the US since the 19th century, where they were originally called goober peas. In late August, when the peanut crops would come in, unsold and surplus peanuts would be prepared in a boiling, and extended families and neighbors would gather to share conversation and food. Like a fish fry, peanut boils have been organizing principles for social gatherings. Like okra, black-eyed peas, collard greens and pork barbecue, boiled peanuts are symbols of southern culture and cuisine." -Wikipedia


Was anyone else collecting moss + twigs with lichen on a friday night? haha.  I saw these apothecary jars at Garden Ridge this weekend + had to have one.  I have seen alot of people on etsy making terrariums + wanted to give it a try.  I made the mushrooms using sculpey.  The bottom layer is polished rocks, then a layer of sphagnum peat moss, then the collected moss, seashells, twigs + lichen, etc.  I think they are pretty cute for my first try.
