Let's go to the fair!


It was a good weekend even if was crazy busy. On Friday night, I finished a great book. Then, Husband and I made a huge mistake. For Baby's last meal, we usually wake her between 10-11PM. She eats, plays briefly and then goes back to bed a little before we do. On Friday, we decided to see what happens if we just let her sleep. Well, if you let her sleep, she wakes up around 1:30AM - wide awake and smiling. Luckily, I just fed her and she went right back to sleep. I went back to sleep around 2:30AM. This wouldn't have been so bad if I didn't wake up shortly after to start our Saturday.

On Saturday, it was a zillion degrees plus the heat index and humidity so it was roughly the temperature of the sun outside. We woke up with Baby and left the house after she had her breakfast so we could go to Celebrate Fairfax! with Sister, Brother-in-Law and Nephew. We got there and felt like eggs just cracked into a fry pan. Needless to say, we didn't last long. Poor Baby was so hot. She was so well behaved. After the festival, we went to TGIFriday's for lunch. Then, we had to run back home because we were expecting Husband's family for dinner. I took a brief nap while Husband gave Baby a cool bath. Then, Baby napped while we started dinner and did some last-minute cleaning. It was a nice dinner to celebrate our birthdays and Fathers' Day - even though our Fathers' Day present didn't arrive on time.

On Sunday, I met friends at Gordon Biersch again. It was yummy. Plus, we got cupcakes at Cake Love. I haven't eaten mine yet, but I can't wait! We celebrated my birthday in Vera Bradley style. I had been eyeing this one pattern, and my friends gave me separate pieces in the pattern I love. Plus, I stopped at a store and picked up another purse 50% off. Then, we went to paint pottery. I'm not very good, but it was something different to do. I don't think I could afford to go walking around the mall one more weekend!

So, it was a good weekend. It went quickly as they all do.

Oh, which VB pattern did you pick up? I'm becoming a VB fan. Didn't own anything of hers until I ordered the tote. can't wait for it to arrive. I will post pictures.

You're weekend sounds busy. The Man was out of town and the power was out Saturday so I did some filing and dusting and then went to a cafe with my knitting and a book. Good times. Yesterday I was feeling sick so slept in. Then did some laundry, vacuuming and watched movies. All in all a relaxing weekend, but not as productive as I would have liked. I really need to declutter the paper. Want to come over and help? *g*

My favorite pattern is the pink elephants. The bag is the black. I forget the real name of it. I haven't figured if I'm going to get the tote and, if I do, what pattern. Maybe the elephants so it matches the clutch and book cover. :)
