Weekend Recap

We went to Sacramento this weekend to visit some friends, one of whom just graduated with a BS in Engineering. I expressed my condolences. (Just kidding- Congratulations, Aaron!) We had a lovely weekend, showing the bubba off to people who had never seen his wonderfulness in person before. And then we went to Ikea.

Yea! Ikea!

(Only, boo! Ikea! because I don’t have enough money.)

We got two new dressers because we had to leave our dressers in Pittsburgh. I like these even more! And they’re all matchy-match. What is it about matching furniture that makes me feel so much like an adult? I think my priorities are mis-aligned. Should work on that…

My one regret about the whole weekend? I had my camera with me THE WHOLE TIME and took NOT ONE picture. Such. A. Dork.

But, we’re going to San Francisco this weekend and I won’t be making the same mistake. Expect pictures of us cavorting at the Zoo, romping at the Aquarium and doing… whatever it is you’re supposed to do… on Haight (maybe we should hold off on that one- Cole is too young and impressionable yet).

Speaking of not enough money (when do I stop?!), I found a great list of kid’s books and have compiled the ones that I want for Cole in my Wish List on Amazon. Only, they add up to about $200. I totally value reading, but $200?! Sorry kid, you’re going to be illiterate. Good thing we live in the county (and country) we do- no one will ever notice.

And soon, we move!! I’m so excited I could barf.

    Yeah…the Haight is more of an uncle josh trip anyways.


    Just back into H-town from a weekend in Georgia. Beautiful country. Now back to the hot humid slow suffering that is summer in Texas.

    Matching dressers… Swoon.

    Care to share the great big list of lusted after children’s books?

    Josh- Long time, no….nuthin’. We thought you had melted! Glad to know you’re only sticky. (EW.)

    Nome- (can I call you that? I’m ALWAYS so tempted to)Swoon-yeah, I know. They’re in their boxes still and, though I know it would make moving them harder, I keep wanting to take them and and build them. So, instead,I keep staring at their picture in the catalog.

    Books- I posted the link over on the left. It makes me feel like a little kid with no book allowance again. SUCKS.

    Sooooo many good books on your wishlist! too bad you guys live in a place with a crappy library. We have all of those books at our library two blocks away and we go at least once a week. (by the way, if you can make it by 11am on Saturday there is a lapsit which cole would enjoy). ANYWAY! Mouse Paint is by far one of the coolest, cutest books ever! I have a few you can look through when you’re here too that spencer is probably willing to give up. We eat through books at a Dani-style rate! Remember when you said your goal was to read every book in the children’s section of the tuolumne county library? Well, now you get a chance to double it. Have fun mommy!
