You swore you'd wait

Best weekend ever!
On Friday I went for drinks with a fabulous ladyfriend. Then a bunch of friends watched what turned out to be a dismal football game. I actually fell asleep, waking just in time for our 1 touchdown.

The Gentleman Caller didn't have to work on Saturday which pretty much never happens. We treated outselves to the very best cinnamon buns in town (they are only made twice a week!) and a wander around the farmer's market. The annual Folk Festival was on this weekend. The organizers have made it so that the daytime events are all free. Fantastic music, art market, and food vendors. Such a lovely way to spend a day in the park.
On Sunday we were lucky enough to get free tickets to the Exhibition Fair. I mostly like to walk around to watch all the people and eat some mini-donuts. Absolutely brilliant!

I love the idea of using earrings as shoe clips! Super cute! And that scarf is utterly fab.

Mini donuts are sometimes the most memorable part of stuff like the Ex for me :)

That sounds like an absolutely perfect weekend!

You look beautiful. I think this would be super adorable if you belted over the scarf, too. :)

Sounds like a fun time, lady! especially with special cinnamon buns! i mean, if they're only made twice a week, they must be REALLY special!

Love the shoe clips!
