Green Market Galore
This past weekend was the last weekend that Ryan will be home for about 2 months because of his travel schedule for work but it was the most perfect weekend.
Saturday morning we woke up and it was finally the Florida winter weather that we, and I'm pretty sure all of South Florida, had been waiting for: 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. We knew we had to do something so we went to the Green Market downtown, which we are fortunate enough to only live a matter of minutes from. (In theory, we should've walked and been active but one step at a time, literally.)
We ventured to the Green market the first Saturday back in October- telling ourselves there was no reason not to come every Saturday morning. And then you realize live happens to this was trip number 2.
We walked around, grabbed breakfast and coffee and sat by the water while we decided which goodies we were going to buy first- he voted for seafood while I voted flowers.
Yes, he totally made a point when he said, "Why wouldn't you get the flowers last so that we can go home and immediately put them in water?" but there's something about walking around a green market with fresh cut flowers wrapped in brown paper that makes a girl happy.
Because he's incredible and complies with my ridiculously princess commands, the flower stand was our first stop for some amazing hydrangeas- my favorite flower and it might just be a foreshadow to wedding flowers :)
We spent the next 2 hours buying muscles and lobster bisque, pickles, pasta, fruits and vegetables. We even ventured for a bundle of kale (is that even what they call a bunch of kale?) because I'm trying to be trendy and healthy so I'm going to attempt to make kale chips- stay tuned.
We probably could have gone to Publix and bought half of those things on bogo but there is something to be said to buying fresh food outside in fabulous weather than makes you care about your wallet just a little bit less.
Some of my hydrangeas might already be dead (did you know that they only last a very very short time period?) but this weekend was one for the books and the perfect way to start off our next couple of months full of work and wedding festivities.
