What a day!!!!!!!!! [Mar. 7th, 2004|05:55 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Matt and I got up very early today and drove to Winter Park, which is a gorgeous town just north of downtown Orlando. For you Kansas City folks out there - it's the Orlando equivalent of the "Ward Parkway/Plaza" area. It's a very quaint, beautiful, very posh old (for Florida, which means it's like 75-100 years old, rather than 20, lol) town - big huge Live Oak trees, very pretty "Old Florida" style architecture, enormous homes, tons of upscale dining, fancy shopping, sidewalk bistros, etc. We did lots of walking, went to Cheesecake Factory (I had Avacado Eggrolls), bought a can opener at Williams-Sonoma, bought some books at Border's, got decorating ideas at Restoration Hardware, had some ice cream at Haagen Dazs, went walking in the nice park there, browsed through some boutiques, and stopped at Chamberlin's (big health food store, like Whole Foods or Wild Oats, but local to Orlando). I bought a TON of "Veat" there (I like to stock up!). If you don't know what Veat is, you can read about it here: http://www.veat.com

Winter Park also has a big farmer's market there (on Saturdays) and one of the country's largest outdoor art festivals (The Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival) coming up later this month (I'll definitely go to that!!!). I had so much fun!!!

Now though, I'm going to paint!!! You can watch me HERE!

Wow, sounds like you had a lot of fun =). Avacado Eggroll sounds soooo good, I'm going to have to look for that. I recently gave up red meat, chicken, and fish. I'm struggling because I don't really have any good recipes. A friend of mines told me about "tuno" which is suppose to taste like tuna but made from soy. I'm going to check out the Veat site you posted.

I love Florida!!! I plan to move there one day. I have tons of family there so I'm always visiting. Winter Park sounds really nice. Florida is just so big (to me at least) and I bet there are a lot of nice communities =).

Okay off to watch you paint =)

OH! That sounds like so much fun! I wonder, me being the thrift freak I am, do you know if there is good thrifting around you? Also Antiques, I LOVE Antiquing!

It sounds like you had a wonderful day! Winter park sounds amazing! I actually have a friend who moved there, I had no idea how close it was to Orlando, LOL. Shows how much I know about the state.

Have fun painting :)
