One of our new favorite things to do is to visit farmers markets. The city has a wonderful market near the capital. We can barely find parking here and take the risk of parking in a zone that doesn't belong to us- but we find it completely worth it (well I suppose until we get a ticket)!
Caleb and I seem to run to the samples, and then go back and back and back again... for more. If you have seen me in Whole Foods- you know what I am talking about.
There is so much to learn at a farmers market. Like how to devein a shrimp. We learned that and came home with a pound of yummy, fresh shrimp! Who can buy that in Indiana?!
On our way home, we also saw a man painting a corner of a neighborhood. We watched as he depicted the buildings so eloquently. Something I have never seen.
Who would have thought?! A day at the market would be so educational and successful. A Sunday afternoon well spent.
I seriously can't stop ... baking. I don't know what it is, an obsessive itch to bake. I just can't seem to get enough. Maybe it is because I have a new husband that will smile at the sound of the buzzer going off or smirk when I announce, "I think I'm going to make chocolate chip cookies tonight."
It's true. We love Maryland. The green trees, wineries, resemblance to Michigan, country roads, and of course, the city that sits on the harbor, Baltimore. Yummm... crab cakes! Despite a torrential downpour that nearly wiped us out in Baltimore on Saturday night- we still love Maryland. Hope to visit you soon, again- maybe with a little less clouds.
well if life were not a roller coaster enough these days, caleb and i decided to add real coasters to the equation. we woke up on saturday morning and caleb had a surprise. he knows how much i love roller coasters and decided to surprise me with a trip to the park.
my idea of a great day.we even ended it with two consecutive rides on the drop tower (the only coaster i still actually get butterflies on). all in all, a great experience (which ended with an ice cream cone) now thats my kind of day. summer is officially complete.
apartment 204 is beginning to feel like home. the air condition is turned on high most days due to the extreme humidity that apparently moves in for dc summers. our little table has been recently acquainted with hungry tummies, new recipes, and lots of left overs. our wedding gifts are nestled into their places and we are beginning to remember where we put things. i even learned which key opens our apartment building and which key opens our actual door. (you have no idea how hard that is to determine when both keys are the same size and gold-ish in coloring). although it has only been two weeks, it is beginning to feel like home.
