Weekend Recap: Soda City Sweets Galore!

I hope you all had a great weekend celebrating Dad!

Today I’m recapping my Saturday – I’ll recap Father’s Day soon with a new tasty summer recipe!

This weekend I was pet sitting for a friend who lives in one of my favorite neighborhoods downtown so I happily worked in early morning runs (thank goodness the heat this weekend didn’t come bundled with our usual thick humidity).

Rediscovered my love of tiny cups (...and espresso!)

She also has the most amazing claw foot tub so I spent my wild Friday night soaking in bubbles and mentally redesigning my own bathroom (I went so far as to have the Hubs come over and take a look to see how much we could realistic recreate at home…).

With a view like this, you don’t blame me do you?!

Since I wasn’t far, I moseyed down to the Soda City market Saturday morning. It’s a good thing I ran that morning because I left with more sweets than I should admit: macaroons from Ally & Eloise (did you see the cakepops they donated for the Craft Party?! They were so tasty I had to try the macaroons!), lemon curd scones and a french loaf from Heather’s Artisan Bakery AND a cronut (it’s some genius hybrid of a croissant + a donut) & 2 chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter icing from Spotted Salamander.

To be fair, the last 2 cupcakes were free because it was Spotted Salamander‘s 6th birthday! And also to be fair again, they gave me a 2nd cupcake because they said my wishing them happy birthday was so enthusiastic I deserved two (which I happily took because obviously I didn’t have enough sugar in my market bag already).

The peanut butter frosting was probably the best thing I've ever had!

So now that I’ve shared with you my journey to a weekend sugar coma, I should confess my primary motivation to getting up early for the market on Saturday: it was Lindsey’s 30th birthday! Not only that, but Lindsey was offering 20% off all her Saint & Rambler vintage goodies! So obviously I had to go stock up & wish my friend a very happy birthday!

I was so overwhelmed with the choices at the market on Saturday, I almost forgot about the second block until I found my friend Sally (of Nana bags) who helped redirect me to where Lindsey was. [It would’ve been super tragic if I’d left without wardrobe shopping..]

Let me tell you – Lindsey has some vintage bathing suits right now that are just breath taking. I’m currently trying to figure out how to plan a warm vacation so I have an excuse to buy a few (does Lake Murray count?!).

This scalloped bust bathing suit is what vintage dreams are made of! [My picture doesn't do it justice - you need to see it in person next time S&R is at Soda City!]

The cut of this polka dotted suit flattering & so classic! I want is so bad!

I hope you all had a great weekend too!!
