Field Trip // 02

last weekend, some friends and their kids and i headed downtown Chicago for a little field trip. we visited the Green City Market in Lincoln Park and Sweet Mandy B's. one of my friends was dying for the chance to take me down and show me around her favorite city spots, so we made a day out of it.


there was a cute music man that the kids loved. ^^
pink pants for the win ^^
the pies and pastries that vendors sell are amazing. i had a crepe. so good. 
we also went to Sweet Mandy B's, a local Chicago bakery. their desserts are amazing. 
thanks for checking out our field trip! make sure you check out the Green City Market and Sweet Mandy B's  if you live/ever find yourself in Chicago. it's pretty great. for the first Field Trip, click here.  xo. Molly

MAYFEST // a new DIY preview

may is one of my absolute favorite months. it brings such change and anticipation and good feelings. i love all of it. my town is so good at creating events for the residents, too. this year, they held their first annual Mayfest yesterday. they had everything from cotton candy to flower crowns. (that's what hooked me!) i headed down with some family friends and we checked it out. 
we have a huge lawn area called the Tower Green. this is where they hold all the events during all seasons. its a block away from my house and it's so cute to see all the kids have fun when they block off the streets and crosswalks. 
we stopped at the flower table first. here you could make flower bucket displays, buy flowers and hebs, and make flower crowns.

the ladies were so nice helping the little girls make their crowns. 

candy concessions and face paint. ^^
they had a few left over balloons... they offered, and of course, i accepted. 
and of course, when i got my picture taken, the littles had to have theirs taken too. :)

Mayfest is definitely a do-over. 
after the fest, i snapped a few pics to show you the new DIY coming this week.

 can't wait to share this tutorial with you! xo. Molly
