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.
