Farmers market and other fun

George and I did lots of stuff yesterday it was so fun! We went back to the Portland farmers market and got some yummy dried cherries and some local made honey. There were a bunch of little kids in costume, it was very cute. I remember three really good ones. There was a dragon, looked like green pjs with a gold horn on the head and gold wings very cute, kid was 3 maybe 4 yrs old. There was a baby in a stroller dressed like a ladybug, that was adorable. And we saw a teeny tiny pirate. He was sooo cute! Maybe 2yrs old, probably younger and he even had an itty bitty hat!

We went to lunch at the Blind Onion (pizza place) we got two big slices of pizza and a drink for $6, not bad huh? We walked back to the market afterwards because we saw some people with apple cider and it looked really good. When we finally found the booth with the cider they were all out except for one gallon, we didn't want that much so we decided to go. We drove back to Vancouver, sat in traffic for a while, and decided to swing by the Vancouver farmers market for some german sausages, the vanc market is so tiny compared to the pdx one! We got the yummy sausages (I think we will have them for dinner tonight) and we got some apples. They are very good, I'm eating one right now! George won't eat them, he says they are too healthy...

We stopped and got movie tickets on our way home, we had planned an evening out with some friends. Buying the tickets was the first time I showed someone my spouse/military ID! We were buying four tickets but they only let you buy two discount tickets per ID, but since we both had ID they let us get four tickets and they were only $6.50 each, for an evening show! Cool huh? Then George made me go look at new cell phones. I like my phone, I know how to use it and it still works, who cares that its almost three years old! George does, he wants a new phone. So we looked at a couple and found one that is buy one get one free. We get a mail in rebate also so both phones would be free. I didn't want George to get them until we checked the consumer reports, so we still don't have them yet.

We went home for a little bit and I fell asleep on the couch in the sun, but I had my feet up on the end of the couch so when I woke up everything was nice and warm but my feet, they were freezing! I think George played computer games and looked up the consumer reports. We left around five to meet our friends (Taylor and Heather) for dinner. We went to a little mexican place, it was yummy. Then we went to the movie which started at 7:10pm. It was good but scary, which was kinda the idea being close to halloween and all. After the movie we all road together to pick up T&H puppies from Heathers parents house, they were puppy sitting. We took the puppies, very cute hound type dogs, back to T&H house.

Then we went to a Halloween party at Taylors sisters friends house. I saw someone that I work with as soon as we got there, it was weird. His name is Keith and he came with his sister who is friends with Taylor's sister, and the world got really small...We had fun at the party, there were a lot of people in costume and they had karaoke, it was loud but fun.
We didn't get home until 1am. I slept in until 10am today. Okay, I think I got it all, hope everyone else is having a good weekend too!

That sounds like a lot of fun! I wish the farmer's market here was good enough to attend. I love that stuff!
