renegade craft fair

renegade craft fair.
my mom babysat so bryan and i could actually go for longer than 45 minutes. finn was so excited to spend the day with mimi she barely waved us off as we left.
no baby means no diaper bag.
means no sunscreen.
not so wise.
hey little owl
where's your sunscreen?
we met up with iku and nova, sweated more than should be allowed at an indie craft fair and bought a lot of art.
i embarrassed myself in front of nan lawson with my awkward adoration and i'm pretty sure she thinks i'm nuts.
we scooped up a lot of dan bob thompson's art and it is now hanging throughout the house.
bryan even surprised me with a much coveted necklace when i wasn't looking.
we finished up with lunch at philippe's.
aside from the second degree sun marks, saturday was a pretty awesome day.
true story.
you don't have to tell me twice.
i sort of adore her and now own the artwork to prove it.

photobooth fun with iku. 
our loot.
i just realized i don't have a photo of nova here. let it be known he was sitting directly to my left in the above photo.

sunday morning, finn and i are hanging out.

finn: mimi? she at work?
me: i think she's at home.
finn: mimi home? i see her?
me: no, baby, not today...i'm sorry.
finn: i'm sorry, too, mommy.


  1. That looks so incredibly relaxing and fun :)
    Reading it made my heart happy for you. That adult time, the fun, the yummy food...

  2. what a fun day...and i had to laugh at the conversation here. it reminds me of conversations with my nieces.

  3. Oh how I love a craft fair!!! Thanks for the tour. Looked like a lot of fun.

  4. cracking up at your conversation with Finn.

    I'm jealous - looks like you got a lot of awesome stuff. How long is the Renegade Craft Fair on?

    And believe it or not... I've never had Phillipe's! I know, I suck...

    PS Yes. Every week should be lived like it is Shark Week.

  5. How fun! I'm so glad you had such a great adult day. : )

  6. very interesting that i stumbled upon your blog from the bright side project. the funny thing is my youngest son's name is finn and my mom's name is mimi. very ironic. i enjoyed reading your blog.
