I started my morning off with an intense workout. I warmed up with 1 mile of intervals on treadmill (30 seconds hard x 1 minute easy) followed by 10 minutes of jump rope and squats (alternating between the two for 1 minute intervals). My upper body workout was 3 sets of the following exercises
Upper Body Exercises
-assisted pull ups
-lunges + shoulder press
-squats + lunch treys
After my workout it was CRAFT TIME! As you know, my mama does wonders with the sewing machine and I’ve done a fare share of sewing myself. We picked up some fabric yesterday and got our sewing on. Inspired by my recent Farmer’s Market trips, I made a reusable grocery bag!
For $6.00 a yard, this bag costed me a little under $2.00 to make. DIY projects are always better than store bought! It’s ess expensive and you get the glory to say you made it yourself
Heck yes. I am going to be the hippest photographer around. *zing* After our sewing brigade, we made our way to the West Allis Farmer’s Market.
Fun Fact: That 70′s Show is based on the town West Allis, Wisconsin.
I wanted to compare prices to the market I go to in Minneapolis. Not going to lie- I was a little bit disappointed in the West Allis market. First, the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market is about 4 times bigger than the one I went to today. So, the selection was a lot smaller. Second, there was very little fruit. I am such a fruit kind of girl and I love the selection of berries, apples, melons, etc. I have in Minne. Third, it was pri-cay! The best deal I found was 4 peppers for a buck (and that’s not even that good because they’re green!)
They did however have a great selection of beautiful flowers.
I love how they used these Mason Jars as vases.
Anyways- We ended up getting a dozen ears of corn, 2 lb. green beans, 5 lb. apples, and a cantaloupe for around $16.00. How could you say no to apples from this lady…She was so dang cute, and had an accent too!
