This Little Piggy Went to the Market........

I'm a bit disappointed in myself for writing a very long emotional post late last night, telling myself I would not delete it this morning, only to come back & censor myself by shortening it quite a bit, leaving it up for an hour, only to come back again & deleting the entire thing. Maybe I just wasn't ready for it..........another time.
So, for something upbeat instead...................
I wanted to share some pics of a restaurant/market we went to last weekend for an early lunch with my parents. This place is to me what 5th Avenue or Gucci or a cute boutique is to many of you. This is where I like to spend my money. Forget the shoes & handbags, give me some beautifully colored pasta & wine in crates!!!!!! Click pic to enlarge.
Beautiful, packaged gourmet goods. Love it!!! I wish this place was my kitchen, especially the top left pic. My Dad is as happy in this kind of environment as I am, middle right. I was a good girl & came out with just a bottle of Pinot Grigio & pasta, bottom right. Talk about opening a bottle of woop woop on someone. Hah. It was very good!!!!!! I've yet to try the pasta though.

Alrighty, I leave you now with wonderful weekend wishes. I have a party to go prep for.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I've edited my posts after having them "out there" for a bit, too. Like yesterdays. I wish I could have read yours though.

I have a birthday party this weekend too. I'm throwing Sophie's party and I cant believe I'm actually doing it because I am way over booked this week. WAY OVER BOOKED!! I have my talk to write, the silent auction tonight and now a birthday party to put on tomorrow morning! What was I thinking? I'm sure you're more prepared than I am so I'm sure your party will go smoothly and be fabulous. Keep your fingers crossed for me, I'm no where near as prepared as you. : )

Maria said...

What a fun store! Have fun at your party this weekend!

Ty'sMommy said...

Oh, how wonderfully FABULOUS! That is absolutely my kind of store. I can feel my credit cards shudder with fear when I walk through the door of a place like that.

Ace C said...

Been awhile since I seen a market like that. Reminds me of back home. I'll never see anything like that here in Vegas. You get everything there.

Molly said...

I love markets like that - I am definitely not a designer clothes store person! I know what you mean about deleting posts, I deleted one the other day and in retrospect I wish I had never posted it because it upset someone and I would never do that intentionally, even though that person had already upset me.

Talk to us when you are ready!

Love this post! Have a great weekend!

Love the photo collage! Have a great weekend.

I can totally see you browsing and gawking through this store!!! I am sorry you were not happy with your post, I too have thought that some of mine were a bit heady or serious. But, some days I just need to post them and I have given myself permission to do it. One thing I have noticed about this blog community, at least those I have read...these women and a few men that I have read are kind and thoughtful people who totally understand the outthere blog that just is screaming to be written occasionally. Soooo, blog away and have a few glasses of wine while you do it!!!! Happy weekend!

This place does look cool! Really cool. Either tonight or tomorrow night I am going to make a whole meal of recipees from you page. I am so excited. I think I am going to let Kaishon and Gary each pick one thing they want! YAY~! Thanks for being an inspiration!

You have to come visit Sarasota, me and LLL. WE have a really cool place like this w/in walking distance of my house!Morton's Market! I used to go there all the time but since the work sit changed- I haven't gotten there as much.
The Publix @ Lakewood Ranch is pretty awesome though!

Jyl @ MommyGossip said...

Love those kind of stores. I could get lost in them forever.

amiable amy said...

indeed right...this is a very nice place

Jenny said...

What great pictures!! I love how you put them all together, I'm soooo no good at editing.

I missed your last post, when I was away in NY, but sometimes we just get that way, I probably would have deleted mine too!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

The Blonde Duck said...

Have a great weekend! I hope you're feeling better!

Angela said...

Hope your weekend improved and that the party went well. I'm worried about the first part of your post so I'm sending you a huge hug!

Love the food and wine shop though. I love places like that too, and I will give up new clothes/shoes/etc for food, kitchen items and wine myself!

Pumpkin Delight said...

I'm with you and the personal/emotional posts. I'm not there either. The market looks like a good place to unwind; los of fun goodies. However, I do like me a good show store too. :)

The Nice One said...

Looks like a trouble spot for me! Fun fun fun!

Kacey Randolph said...

Oooh I SO did this too with my "Honesty" post. But you know, in the end, I just had to put it out there and be done with it. You know? It was actually really liberating. But you only know what is right for you my dear.

I hope you had a FAB party! I'm sure you did and I can't wait to see/hear all about it!

Marcie said...

A woman after my own heart! I totally love food stores like this too...Did you say what store this was?
