I know I am late with this update, but I wanted to get all of the pictures from the people who attended my ILD get together. Sadly, only three people showed up, but I was happy to spend the day with them regardless. It wasn't about the number of people that came, it was all about the people in general.
The list of attendees goes as follows....
My friend Tara on the left and my Mother on the right...
My lovely friend Keira...
And her strikingly handsome brother! He sadly did not get to stay long, but we were very happy to have in join us for as long as he did.
And me of course ^_^ As I am the one taking the pictures, you won't see a lot of me, but I do have a full outfit shot.
Ta dah! I wore my new Meta dress! This dress was so comfortable and light weight it was like wearing air. it's the perfect summer dress ^_^
For the first half of the day, it was Tara, my Mother, and Myself at a wine tasting, held by our local in door farmers market called, 'Tomato Tomahto' It;s really cute and the people who run it are super friendly!
See? ....a little camera shocked.....but still very nice. They sell the best tomatos in Omaha!
The tasting was attended by local wineries as well as other local organic business owners from around the area.
There was a couple selling Gluten Free cake mixes...
I didn't mean to, but I caught them unaware and this was the only picture of them that wasn't blurry.
I am usually not one for gluten free things, but of all their treats, I liked the chocolate cake the best...
Moist, chocolaty, and perfect with the root beer I was sipping at the time. Very good worth having again.
I also tried some of the granola that was being sampled....
I tried the raisin and pecan mix and was very pleased. It was just sweet enough for a midday snack, but not so sweet that it made you hungry five minuets later. I plan to go back and get some next pay check.
There was wine of course...
But as I don't drink wine, I couldn't tell you if it was amazing or not....but it was ok.
The real show stopper was these guys...
They were selling a fruit compote like jelly that they called 'The Sweet Before the Heat'.
It is a fruit mixed with hobanero peppers....not sure how they did it, as there is no pepper smell of flavor, but the moment you put it in your mouth you get the sweet soothing fruit, then are hit with this.....spicy, tingling sensation that takes over all of your senses, but isn't knock your socks off hot.
I'm not one for overly spicy things, but when I saw they had Peach flavor, I had to try it....
I swear it is so good! So good in fact, that a bought a jar to put on my bagels or toast in the mornings! Take about a wake up call.
When then when to lunch at Red Robin, where I got no pictures.....Very sad, and then met up with the other two additions to out party and went to the mall to get manicures.
Purple for me, which despite the lightly is actually very lovely.
It was a great day all together and I hope the Fall Lolita Day is just as entertaining. ^_^
On a side note, I need a better camera and someone that will take lots of pictures for me. Next International Lolita Day I want to be in the pictures as well! Oh well. We'll see how that goes over the course of the rest of the year ^_^
How was your ILD?
