in breakfast,fun finds

There are certain places in a gal’s life that no matter where she is in the world, feel like home.

My “homey” places are: (1) Target (obv) and (2) farmer’s markets.  I could be in the middle of Ulan Bator, Mongolia but hell, if there’s a Target or farmer’s market to be had, it would feel just like good ol’ Minnesota.  Since I hit up Tarjay last night, naturally this morning was the perfect time for the Dane County Farmer’s Market.

I am going to let the pictures do the talkin’…

I love the banana pic- thought it was an ice cream! Gorgeous market… :D Mine sells whiskey oatmeal and lots of alcohol/meat, but not much else :(

Go nail your 18 miler!!!!!! *waving pompoms*

That farmers market looks so amazing. The one in Oklahoma is pretty pitiful, so farmer’s markets make me feel like I’m away from home haha. But I still love them!

Emily (Healthy Fit Mama) August 29, 2009 at 3:04 pm

Great looking Farmers Market!

Best of luck on your 18 miles!! :-)

Jenny August 29, 2009 at 3:11 pm

I love farmer’s markets on a saturday morning… it has such a nice essence about it. Btw, that blueberry scone is too die for! looks so yummy!!

Faith August 29, 2009 at 3:33 pm

At 1st glance I also thought the banana was an ice cream cone! Maybe I’ve got ice cream on the mind! ;)

This looks like a gorgeous farmers market!

Meredith August 29, 2009 at 4:12 pm

I love scones! And fresh from the Farmers Market? Super yum!

Evan Thomas August 29, 2009 at 4:35 pm

Good luck on the 18. The weather around here is definitely not running motivating so hopefully it’s better where you are

Anne K. August 29, 2009 at 5:01 pm

I was positive that banana was a pic of an ice cream cone! Haha! The farmers market looks fabulous, and good luck on the 18 miles. Wow!

ksgoodeats August 29, 2009 at 5:18 pm

At first I thought your naner was an ice cream cone (and I just saw I wasn’t alone). That scone? Delicious!

I want your bagel with buttah…mmmm carbs :)

Susan August 29, 2009 at 5:39 pm

Haha, I love how you just casually mention you’re off to run EIGHTEEN MILES. Good luck!! :D

Rosey Rebecca August 29, 2009 at 7:28 pm

I love Farmer’s markets!! Looks like you’ve got a good one!

leianna August 29, 2009 at 7:39 pm

My husband thought your banana was an ice cream cone too, great picture taking skills! Love all your farmers market finds!

Pam August 29, 2009 at 7:41 pm

I love the farmer’s market! You got some great buys. Love the flower.

Angharad August 29, 2009 at 7:57 pm

Holler at my Holly!! You are a total rock star for running 18 miles. So proud…
Love your Farmer’s Market stash – gorge flowers and of course fresh business. I too thought that naner was an ice cream cone at first and I was like, “rock it, Holly – ice cream for breakfast” haha.

Hoping you’ll give a full run re-cap missy so I can be inspired.

I’ve been cleaning for 3 hours non stop and am now off for pizza at the boy’s. Wish you were joining.
Have an ace night xx

glidingcalm August 29, 2009 at 8:19 pm

That picture of the naner is amazing!

keunger August 29, 2009 at 8:34 pm

I smiled just looking at your farmer’s market pictures. I also feel happy and homey just being in the midst of one. I hope your run was THE BEST! Good luck, good luck, good luck!

Lizzy August 29, 2009 at 8:46 pm

You probs already ran, since i have a bit late on catchin up today, but i hope it went well!!!!!

Farmers markets and target is where its at girl! Uh except i’ve made 2 target runs in the past 2 days, and i still yet to find anything. what the heezy is wrong with me. LOL

have an awesome night girl!


janetha August 29, 2009 at 8:48 pm

at first i thought that banana was some crazy type of ice cream cone. nice angle.. making bananas look like ice cream cones takes talent. well i hope you made it on your run. and i agree about the target thing… except there is this one location that is totally ass backwards from all the others in the state and it drives me bonkers to go there. it is like i am living inside of a mirror. holly, i love you.

Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) August 29, 2009 at 9:00 pm

Good luck on the 18 miles!! I know you can do it, girly! :D

Glad to see I’m not the only one who thought the naner was an icecream cone. ;) Haha…

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend!

Tay August 29, 2009 at 9:39 pm

I’m sure you’re already done running by now (unless you’re crazy and ran extra….or got completely lost), but I hope it went well!!

broccolihut August 29, 2009 at 11:05 pm

Ah man. I LOVE the farmers’ market. I think it’s my second happiest place on earth (behind WF). Hope your 18 miles was a breeze:)

WholeBodyLove August 30, 2009 at 12:25 am

Farmer’s Markets are the health food bloggers’ shopping malls. So much to take in!

jenngirl August 30, 2009 at 8:36 am

I love thinking of places that way–definite comfort zones! Hope your run went well :)

kait August 31, 2009 at 11:23 am
