Dreaming of Peaches

Although I got 9 hours of sleep last night it wasn’t all that solid.  I shouldn’t complain though, I got to sleep in until 7:30AM which was fantastic!  Sometimes my brain is just overloaded, which keeps me up at night.  Graduate school, work, and future planning…. lots to think about.

Anywho, after a quick bowl of cereal I picked up my boyfriend and headed off to the Old Town Alexandria farmer’s market.

The farmers market was PACKED today but with such beautiful produce available, I understand why.

My BF was pretty excited too.  I took him to a farmers market a few weeks ago, but it was about an 1/8 the size of today’s market.  He was of course drawn to all of the pastry tables, but we bought some really awesome peaches today.  I love white peaches where as he liked the regular peaches (a bit too tart for me).  There is nothing better than farm fresh peaches in the middle of the summer.

After the farmers market we headed to GAP and then to Costco to pick up a few things.

Costco is like Disney World to my boyfriend.  I wish there were food samples in women’s clothing stores… I know for a fact more men would shop with their women if that was the case.  By the end of our excursion, we were pooped.

Nothing a little smoothie can’t fix!!

Fresh blueberries from the farmers market, Fage Greek yogurt from Costco and some mixed frozen fruit… YUMMY!  The mixed fruit included pineapple, strawberries, mango, and peaches.  It was a really refreshing smoothie.  It re-energized me just in time to do something I truly hate….. shaving.  I don’t know what it is but I hate shaving my legs.  I don’t know how some women shave every day.  It’s just something I despise and thankfully I have blonde leg hair and it grows back really slow, so I can get away with only shaving once every two weeks.

Tonight my BF and I are meeting my cousin at Union Station.  She’s in town for a teaching conference and I’m really looking forward to seeing her.  She just got married a few weeks ago, so I can’t wait to hear all about it!

We’re then heading out to dinner with Wizard, Rosco, Kristy, and Travis.  We’re using our Groupons for Pete’s New Haven Style Pizza and grabbing some beers.  Just what the doctor ordered.

What is something you hate to do?  Any particular chore?
