Random updates

I promised more stories of my fun birthday weekend, but the week has been a bit full of other things and I haven't had a chance, or an interest really, in updating the blog until today.

In today's news, I was chosen as a runner up in the Kristina Contes design contest at Cocoa Daisy for this page

For my prize I get to choose a past kit. I'm having trouble deciding what I want. I'm looking at add on kits, since I've gotten each monthly kit since April. A lot of the add on kits I love are sold out, but I do like this and this, although I should probably clarify that I can choose an add-on kit and if I can pick one from the current month....anyway, I'm excited to have been chosen runner up.

As for more weekend stories, we had a great time. Saturday was spent shopping at Forever 21, eating lunch at P.B. Loco and more shopping at the mall, where we (meaning one of us--Jessie, Nicole, Kellie and myself) made purchases at Anthropologie, Nordstrom's, Lucy and Ann Taylor loft. After a little afternoon siesta at my house, we headed to Postino for a little wine and dinner. I love the atmosphere at Postino! They had the garage doors open (it used to be a post office and the garage doors were left as part of the atmosphere) so we had some nice cool air from outside with our comfy seating on the couch. It's such a fun place and has the most amazing bruschetta--we ordered one of each--yum!

Sunday was spent having brunch at my parents. My mom made "pumpkin pancakes yum," her words, with an apple and pecan topping. Very delicious. I would love to post more pictures, but blogger is not letting me, so you can imagine that we had a lovely brunch by the pool in my parents courtyard, surrounded by flowers and hummingbirds with temperatures in the high 80's.

After some time at my parents, we headed to Verde Maison, for some paraben free shopping...more on this some other time....and to In and Out Burger, where to my shock and horror both Jessie and Nicole ordered cheeseburgers!!! What is this world coming to?

Before leaving for the airport, Jessie and Nicole flipped through my scrapbooks and some idea books, I do pretty much have the idea book library, while the boys chased down a Koi from our pond and packaged it up for transport on the plane to Oregon.....boys.....thankfully, the fish made it to Jessie and Tim's pond safe and sound.

All in all we had an amazing time and I miss my girls desperately. It's really not fair that we live in different states. At least we've been able to see each other pretty regularly over the past couple years.
