Craft fair fun

I got up early on this Saturday to meet my mom at a local high school and help her setup her craft fair table. It turned out to be fun. I was her marketing and PR person, helping bring a new perspective on signs she needed and prices that needed to be marked.

Before heading to the craft fair, I had more of the Total Blueberry Pomegranate cereal. I poured myself some cereal into my bowl and said to myself, I should listen to the advice of the teacher from Thursday’s class (still need to blog on what I learned) and measure this portion. Turns out I was slightly over the 1 cup serving size recommended by General Mills. I really want this measuring bowl where the measurements are written inside. Very cool idea and then I wouldn’t dirty up my measuring cups every time.

Back to the craft fair…here’s mom at her table. She’s so cute.

My sister-in-law also had a booth there and it was her first time at a craft fair. She sold items made out of recycled materials. Very cute stuff!

Both ended up having successful days, which is great! People were really buying today! I helped my mom for about 2 hours and then called it quits. I would have loved to stay all day with her, but I needed to get things done at home. I ended up seeing my old high school track and tennis coach there and chatting to her for quite a while. She remembered by name and everything. I told her I still liked to run and play tennis and unfortunately, still have a bad knee and now two bad ankles. 😦

After the fair, I did a quick run to the mall on the way home and didn’t find anything. Shopping for Christmas presents is just not fun for me. I would much rather shop online.

I got super hungry once I was home and had a leftover slice of pizza, baby carrots, cheese curds (Wisconsin thing) and half of a tomato.

Dessert was courtesy of the craft fair bake sale. A peanut butter patty and a quarter of of a gluten-free brownie. The PB patties were sooo good and the gluten free brownie was tasty too. I don’t know why, but it didn’t taste overly sweet, which to me was a good thing.

It’s a dreary afternoon here. Blah. We’re going to try to get back to the Irish Pub again tonight for an earlier dinner this time. Hopefully we have some luck because I have been really craving an alcoholic cider!
