A Wedding and a Craft Fair

Weekends are the best. Especially when there are fun events to fill it. This weekend we headed south to Monterrey/ Carmel for my college friend’s wedding. It was a lovely affair. The setting felt like we were in some forest oasis. There was delicious food, amazing company, and great dance music.

 Sunday was the big Artisian/ Craft Fair for my fianc√©’s school. There were many amazing crafters at the event. I was in awe of some of the items people were selling. There was pottery, sewing, body products, and photographs. Sorry I don’t have more photos, but I was busy with my table.   

 I had set a goal of selling 8 items, and I ended up selling 19! Woot woot! It was so great to hear people’s feedback and see them walking around with my products. Nothing beats being able to gain insight into a shopper’s mind. 

If I did another fair I would include more hats with variegated yarn as well as hats with details (e.g, buttons, bows). People really seemed to enjoy the unique items that can only be handcrafted. Yay handmade! 
 

Race Weekend

So I am turning 30 in 11 days. I know I am ONLY turning 30, however, leaving my 20’s behind seems a little scary. Earlier this year I vowed to myself I wanted to achieve a few things before the big 3-0. One thing was to step up my fitness game. Enter my goal: Run in an organized race by November. Well folks I can check that off the list! I ran in my first 5K race this weekend.

The run took place in Golden Gate Park on Halloween morning. Here is a lake in the park. Eerie right?!?

Since the race was on Halloween it was encouraged that you run in costume. I dressed as a black cat and my fiance was Waldo.

The race started and we got off to a great start. Unfortunately, around 1.6 miles I started loosing steam. My fiance thankfully had some encouraging words  and we finished in 30:04!

Boy did that finish line look glorious! I have to say I feel super proud and accomplished. Maybe I can train for bigger races…half marathon maybe? (haha)
