miller union and craft fairs

yesterday i was treated to a delicious birthday dinner at miller union. it was a date night. i love those! we had heard rave reviews about miller union and rachel got me a gift certificate (she's a great sister). we pulled up to the brady ave address and i was instantly surprised at how sheeshee it was. valet parking, an asten martin parked right in front, but as soon as we stepped inside i felt like i was in a modern farm house. oversized pendants hang over farm tables and tiny booths fill the center of the restaurant. everything is candlelit and cozy. the menu is simple and to the point utilizing seasonal and local ingredients.

this lighting makes me and sam look like we could use a few more zzzzzzs.

rubarb sweet custard

highlights: whipped rudabegas, fried grits, carrot ginger soup, the trout. i even LOVED the brussell sprouts! another highlight: mr. kevin gillespie was also enjoying a meal while we were there!

a huge thank you to the wonderful lindsey and brittany for a delicious lunch and wonderful company today!!!

i was able to finish up my goods for the thread and canvas event on sat. here's what you can look out for:

ring and roll balls

zipper pouches

reversible hanker chief bibs

and oh yea...sam was listening. i love him and not just because he buys me perfect shoes.

love it all!! good luck! I made olivia some kercheif bibs when I was preggo and they are by far my faves, because you can make them as small or large as you need them to be (as the grow). You should sell those on your site too:) love all your print combos!

2. Man you are a sewing machine! As soon as you start making boy stuff I'll be a loyal customer. :)
3. Admittedly, Sam looks like he could use a few more zzzzs, but that pic of you is SO PRETTY! whoa! You look so lovely and your hair looks so bright red! I love that picture. SO much. And cute outfit, cute everything. How do you look so perfectly put together all the time?? It is amazing.

Looks like a lovely dinner out!
I'm obsessed with Brussels Sprouts right now! Roasted with olive oil, garlic powder and salt/pepper! So good!
Thanks for the feedback on the yoga video. I'll have to check it out! you know, so i can learn how to "find that cherry nectar". Too funny!
Hope you have a great day, lady!

YUM! And I so so cannot wait to stop by on Saturday. I ran into my friend Shannon on Monday only to realize that she's one of the boss ladies in charge of T+C! I might hang around all day.
