As I mentioned in my last post, Ant and I went to the Taste of Roselle for dinner last night. I wasn't expecting much, especially after the dinky carnival that was the Rose Festival. However, it was pretty fun! There were a ton of people at the event, which made me a little uneasy, but since the festival was spread out over three or four blocks there was plenty of room for everyone.
We were surprised at how many different food vendors there were to choose from! After taking a look around Ant decided on a chicken gyro and I opted for a huge slice of cheese pizza (I told you guys I'm boring when it comes to food!).
After we ate we walked around a bit more. A bunch of local businesses had booths set up across the way from the food vendors. One of the businesses was a chiropractor's office that was offering free 15 minute mini massages! Ummm, SIGN.ME.UP. They had these little chairs set up so they were just doing simple back massages, and I wanted one so bad. I asked if they would massage a pregnant lady and I ended up talking to the chiropractor who wasn't comfortable massaging me at the festival. But he said that I could go to their office for a complimentary 30 minute prenatal massage! You better believe I jumped on that deal and set up an appointment for Monday afternoon.
After I signed up for my massage we walked over to the craft show. We didn't quite understand how this booth fit in with all the other handmade jewelry, custom t-shirt and henna tattoo booths.
It was a pretty hoppin' booth so they must be doing something right! After the craft show we made a beeline for the bingo tent where we each got three bingo cards.
Twice I came so close to winning!
No such luck though. After three rounds we decided we'd had enough and wanted some dessert.
Dippin' Dots to the rescue! Gosh, I can't remember the last time I had those little spherical balls of ice cream. I ordered a mint chocolate chip and Ant got a banana split. All in all it was a fun night!
In case you were wondering, we took all the photos with the new camera I got Ant for his birthday. We used one of the built-in filters to get a fun vintage look on all the photos.
