Sunday hometown adventures

I woke up on time but ended up laying down till too late for Bikram. I had an Amy's Southwestern breakfast burrito (my fave one) over greens.

Dad and I started the morning at the swap meet. Dad used to go all the time and try to get me to wake up early to go with him. It was unsuccessful. Today we just went to walk around.

I suggested going to the OC Marketplace on the fairgrounds. Much bigger with new stuff.

Since I missed the farmer's market yesterday, I was glad to see some produce today. I got a bag of small avocados for $2! Perfect for my late lunch/early dinner: chicken wrap with avocado!

Final stop, the Patchwork Indie Arts & Crafts Festival in Santa Ana. I love the arts district and wish I could spend more time, except I tired my dad out.

I bought a $5 clutch from Bungalow 360. She had bags and backpacks for $10 and wallets for $5 too. I saw these at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific and couldn't believe they were so cheap!

I ate a snack (lite string cheese and cinnamon almonds) and took a quick nap before I headed to work.

After work fro-yo from CDM Yogurt. They have the Only 8 brand in cake batter & coconut! Last time I encountered this brand was in Salvo, NC in the summer of 2010. Great trip out to the coast with my roomie and visiting my friend Drew. Definitely will need to frequent this place.

On the way home, I grabbed a bag of Alexia spicy sweet potato fries with my $1 off coupon. I was craving sweet potato fries yesterday and bought them at Native Foods. Unfortunately, those were not as great as Seabirds Truck. I liked these home-baked ones much more.

Another item I picked up: Luna fiber bar in peanut butter strawberry. I didn't realize this one had PB too! Can't wait to try it.

I downloaded Mockingjay on audiobook. I can't wait to "read" it since I had to return my copy to the library last week. For now, I'm off to watch the crazies on "America's Got Talent."


  1. it still amazes me that you're so close to my area! :) I'm in Santa Ana every Thursday too hehe. These places you visit seem really cool! Even if it's for the walking and getting some fresh air, I think it'd be worth going to those places. and I love native foods!

    1. Any suggestions for places to go/things to do. Always looking for a quickie trip!

  2. sounds like a great day! I love fairs. What a steal on the clutch. Its so cute. I have been looking for those Luna Fiber bars. I look forward to seeing what you think of it.

    1. Peanut butter is my fave!

    2. Peanut butter strawberry that is. I tried all 3 flavors.
