Indie Craft Parade: Take 2

Apparently the Indie Craft Parade was highly successful...because I wasn't successful in getting in last night. The line was well out the door!

So my family and I decided to go eat downtown, and we ended up at Trio, which serves some of the best Italian food in Greenville. And fortunately (unfortunately for my waistline?), my favorite restaurant in Greenville, Coffee Underground, is directly across the street from Trio. Underground, of course.

I had their chocolate chip pecan pie and a mocha for dessert. Be jealous.

Luckily, the Indie Craft Parade was going on today as well, and despite a half hour wait in the rain, I finally made it in! There were so many fun crafts to peruse!

There were also food vendors, and I bought cupcakes from FiggyWhigs Cupcakes.

Yes, please.

I also bought a necklace from Going Home to Roost and this bag because the elephant is so darn cute...

Since I've started writing more letters recently, I bought some stationery, too. And I can write whatever I want in that cute little elephant's banner!

Speaking of letter writing, I've been getting a start on some of my Spread the Love projects.

I cooked dinner for my parents Tuesday night (chicken, carrot, and snow pea pasta), got a letter in the mail to Bruce, the chaplain at Silver Bay, sent a note of thanks to the personel manager of the Hendersonville Symphony, and started work on a few necklaces for some friends. I'm eager to get started on the others!

And speaking of Spread the Love, doesn't the foam on my coffee last night look like a heart?

How fun is that?!?

OH MY GOSH, that cupcake looks AMAZING! I miss Tallahassee's cupcakery SO much! Looks like a super fun time... I wish that there was stuff like that in the Springs.

I noticed the "heart" in your coffee in the first picture, how cool! And the desserts look so good, now I'm hungry! :)
