The Devon Horse Show is one of the few places where "country fair" means shopping at a miniature Anthropologie, eating gourmet tea sandwiches for lunch, and a ladies hat contest that makes you feel like you're attending a royal wedding. It's also one of the few places that has totally unique horse classes where kids hunt teams are encouraged to "bribe" the judges and ride in full costumes (my favorite team this year was the Powderpuff girls who's horses each had flouresent colored hair to match their costumes). I just adore it. Me and my mom (that's her in her adorable hat by the fence!) spend all year talking about it now. It's aboslutely something to add to your "bucket list" if you're a horse lover:)

This weekend I went with my Mom and Mommom down to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. I don't knit or crochet but I gladly spent the day wandering through the barns, petting fuzzy noses and scratching behind wooly ears. I also enjoyed reminiscing about when we were little and my sister's sheep would escape from their pen and stare into the kitchen while we ate breakfast.
A lovely way to spend a Saturday:)

Last night me and Frank were headed up to Ikea in Philly and couldn't resist trying out Fette Sau while we were in the area. He's is a big pulled pork lover and I love pretty much all the Stephen Starr eateries so we already had a sneaking suspicion we would both thoroughly enjoy it, and we weren't dissapointed.
We shared a pound of pulled pork (which we didn't quite finish) and some mushrooms. They give you some rolls with it so you can make yourself a little sandwich if you like, which is nice. Personally, I like my pulled pork with just a little sweet bbq sauce and to eat my roll seperately – I'm a little weird! They have places to sit inside but I'm of the firm belief that if it's nice, and you have the option, you should always choose to sit outside. Just another one of my little oddities.
They also had a really cute bar. Neither of us are big drinkers, but part of me just wanted to sit at the bar to admire it's adorableness for a little while. The whole place had a great quirky atmosphere and we loved the food (according to my husband the pulled pork was "northern style" as opposed to southern – I just know it was tasty:). I have a feeling we'll end up here again at least once again before the end of the summer…

I did a quick little jaunt into Philly yesterday to visit a friend. It was great. I took the high speed line in which I haven't done in forever. My lovely friend introduced me to Elixr and I fell in love with both their coffee and the whole feeling (how did I not know about this place when I actually lived in the city?) and then we walked down to visit her husband working at Farmers Cabinet and he made me an amazing drink (yes, I actually had a drink on St.Patricks day – can you believe it?). And of course I couldn't leave without wandering through Anthro, Paper Source and Rittenhouse Park. It was lovely.
How was everyone else's weekend?
