photos from the weekend

Eric and I started off Saturday morning with the usual, tea, pancakes and hashbrowns.
I was drinking out of my Alamo mug, and later in the day my parents called to say they were on their way to San Antonio. Coincidence?!

Josh and Kelly weren't sick of us yet, and we had plans to meet up at the Piazza for the weekly farmer's market.

I know the weather wasn't as great as last weekends (or so we hear), but atleast it was sunny!

We had heard rumors of a taco trunk, and patiently waited for it to arrive.

Eric and I ordered the edamame hummus...

And the Southern BBQ and Indian Tikki Masala tacos.

After the farmer's market we walked around the neighborhood for a while, checking out shops and the new beer store.

On our walk home Eric and I stopped in City Planter and I was mesmerized by the air plants. I'll probably go back this weekend to pick up one, or two.

I did purchase a parsley plant and a jade plant.

Once we got home I prepped for the main mission of the weekend, my long run. The Broad Street Run is a little over a month away. I had 8 miles on the agenda, but I felt good on my run and ended up doing 8.5.

Later in the evening we went to Whole Foods and I bought these!

rice dream bites

They are as good as you would think. But it's been tough walking by the freezer and not popping a few in my mouth.

We stayed in Saturday night and watched Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution. It's on Hulu, and I recommend you watch it.

We woke up Sunday morning and Eric wasn't sick of tacos quite yet. He prepped some Mexican style tacos for breakfast.

more tacos

Along with some hot chocolate.

saturday drink

I've been wanting to change something up in our apartment, and we are about to sign our lease again. So I am making Eric complete all the projects we have been thinking about the past (almost) year.
The people before us had shelving in this one nook of our apartment. They took it down when they moved, but left all the shelves/hardware.

assembling shelving

We haven't finished, but hopefully it will give us more storage.

While Eric built stuff, I got to work in the kitchen.

I had seen a recipe on The Kitchn for Vegan Chocolate Ginger Orange Cupcakes.

I am going to recommend that you DO NOT make this recipe. They aren't bad, but not really good. The icing was gross and I ended up just throwing it out.

But I am sure we will still manage to eat them.

Did Eric ever decide what is wrong with my car? He said he was going to think about it.

I really thought the waste of food in Jamie Oliver's show was a bit excessive. I understand hes trying to make a strong point but was all that really needed?

No, I forgot what sounds your car was making.. maybe you can make a sounds clip of it and the area where its coming from :)

This just made me so happy! Gorgeous photos- I want that Batman poster- and even though the cupcakes may not have tasted fab, they look delicious. I'm also kind of in love with your mug.
