So I finally did it…I made my first non-perishable food related purchase. I’ve been dreaming about this moment for three weeks and had done my research as to the best place to purchase my BRAND NEW CANVAS ROLLY BAG. Now I can travel to my marchés in style. Unfortunately the place that had the cheap/good size/water proof bag, only had red or white to choose from. So now I stand out even more than before!
Diana went with me to make my purchase and could feel my excitement. I literally have been waiting to buy this. And on a positive note, I went to the marché today and realized that I had made a friend! One vendor I often go to (she has great product at reasonable prices; you can find dirt cheap prices, but the quality of the item is deceivingly terrible- Diana and I have learned our lessons!) miraculously figured out that I’m obviously a foreigner and by no means a Parisian. We chatted in Frenglish and she now knows that I’m an American student from California and she has been helping me to pronounce the item and the quantity. Woohoo! In Kelsey’s friendgame: +1. Although I later realized that she probably recognizes me because I always make sure to walk through the marché, even when it’s out of my way.
Me and my new bestie. We’re cute, I know. It’s how I pick up my men.
Diana wanted to take a picture that would show just how much food we have in our household. Our entire “fridge” is filled along with our shelves. Well some girls have already bought copious amounts of clothes, we have bought copious amounts of food…
