Good Deal

Hi, there! Just checking in with a quick blog post while everyone gets ready to go out for ice cream. (As you can see, I’ve mastered speed blogging on this vacation!)

After breakfast this morning, my mom, sister, and I headed to the Sandwich Flea Market to do a little shopping. Growing up, the three of us used to hit up flea markets and yard sales all of the time, so it was fun for us to do together again today.

We didn’t arrive at the flea market until almost 11:00, when the vendors started packing up, so we only spent about an hour wandering around, but we still found some good deals.

My sister scored this fun bangle bracelet:

And I found a $3 Liz Claiborne bag! I talked the seller down from $5. Booyah.

I also bought Murphy a new stuffed dog toy for $0.25. What a deal. He loved it!

After the flea market, we stopped by Ocean State Job Lot, where we found some more good deals. I picked up a box of Nature’s Path granola and a big bag of quinoa, which was 10 X cheaper than Whole Foods.


On the car ride home, I ate about half of the box of granola. It was just so delicious!

At home, I mixed some more granola with plain Greek yogurt and banana slices. I also drank another iced coffee with soy milk. Breakfast for lunch? Yes, please.

After lunch, I headed out for an easy 3-mile run. I didn’t want to get lost in our new neighborhood, so I ran 1.5 miles away from the house and then 1.5 miles back the same way home. It worked. I didn’t get lost.

Then, I took my first outdoor shower of the vacation. Love it.

Heading out to get ice cream before dinner. I <3 vacation!

  1. flea markets are the BEST. i am also loving the cold cuts galore on this trip- ive been obsessed with deli turkey for a while now… cant get enough of that stuff

  2. I love Ocean State Job Lot. It’s always exciting to score something there, because its invariably cheap and unexpected – double whammy of awesomeness!

    I do the same ‘out-and-back’ thing with running when I’m in an unfamiliar place 🙂 Kiiinda sorta boring, but I soo don’t trust my directional abilities enough to run a fun windy course.

  3. Hope you are having a great time in the Cape!! I grew up in Eastham. If you guys are looking for a great place to grab a drink…try the beachcomber. Its a far ride if you are not near the outer cape but a beautiful little bar.

  4. I LOVE outdoor showers…they remind me of beach vacations on Ocracoke Island in the Outer Banks…ahhh…It is the little things. So jealous!

  5. Sounds like a wonderfully relaxing vacation. I had to laugh when you said “easy 3 mi. run”. I’m on Week 1, day 3 of C25K & I can’t imagine a 3mi run ever being easy!!!
