Is another woman’s treasure!
Seamane invited me to a clothing swap she attends each year at her friend Alice’s house. I had some clothes to donate and expected to maybe come home with one or two things- but I really hit the jackpot with lots of cute stuff!
Everyone also brings a dish to share, and I whipped up a batch of my Baked Oatmeal Snack Bars to take. This is my MOST FAMOUS recipe and I only made them ONCE!! I figured I should make them again
I also updated the recipe page with photos. The old ones were awful and dark!
Before I left, Matt and I went on a 5 mile run. My stomach has eaten too many sweets lately – that breakfast did not sit well! But we survived, and it was a good way to springpad to the next event. I chugged some coconut water to quench my thirst and tide me until we got to the party.
At the party there were a bunch of delicious foods -
I had a collection of nibbles to serve as lunch, focusing on the veggies, hummus, kashi crackers and cheeses
There were also a bunch of desserts – including these apple pie bites (had one!)
It was some kind of apple mixture cooked into a wonton with whipped cream + caramel to top!
Seamane made Jessica’s Better Than Crack brownies
Before I left I tried them all
The clothing swap was a TON of fun!! There was a mountain of clothes and we all just dug in happy. I think it had doubled in size from the time I took this early-on photo!
With undies and bras in the room, I didn’t take any photos at the party, but since I knew you’d want to see what I came home with, I did a quick fashion show when I got home. Click the thumbnails to enlarge. I don’t know what my favorite item is – probably one of the dresses!

Time to start thinking about dinner. It’s amazing how run down my body feels after a weekend with more wine + sweets than I normally eat. I’m thinking we need to harvest some greens from the garden for a bit of replenishment for dinner tonight!
