Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, this weekend we slept in, made crepes for brekky, went Goodwill hunting, found the Nammi Truck on Fitzhugh, hit up TC's for tiger's blood snow-cones, watched this movie, and threw away 4 trash bags of sheet we didn't need. Loved this weekend. Dear Paddling Paws, you are a constant reminder of the amazing adventure these past 7 months have been. I wouldn't trade you for anything. (Not even for these). Dear Fall Concert Line-Up, Bon Iver in September, The Avett Brothers in October, and Feist in November. Can't wait. Dear Husband, last night you frantically searched for our binoculars so you could stare at some birds in the street. This made me A) check and see if you were wearing socks with your Crocks B) thankful to have a recently organized gear closet C) fall more in love with you or D) all of the above.

Happy freakin Monday, Homies! What was the best part of your weekend? Lately I've been on a cleaning / organizing binge and it feels so good to get rid of things that we don't need, use, and / or bring us joy. Sayonara clutter!

We did...nothing. And it was wonderful! We only left the house for church. Just don"t see this happening till after Christmas, so we had to seize it. :) I imagine after we send our firstborn to kindy in a couple of weeks, the busy-factor's gonna go off the charts...

Very creepy hand video! Jealous of your Nammi Truck. We tried out a neighborhood Asian fusion restaurant on Friday (not a fan). Wondering if good Asian food is hard to find in CO. I think the best part of our weekend was a quiet Sunday afternoon & dinner last night with new friends (http://yellowsongbird.blogspot.com/) from our new church! Way to go on the clean out/organizing binge! I need to do more of that too!

We napped; bought a car seat, realized it was too small for our tiny car but were too tired to return it; split an icee at Target (which was apparently my husband's first icee ever...) and bought next semester's books.

We also went to our second to last Childbirth Class - which cracks me up because my husband loves it way more than I do.

Your poor hand! I'm jealous of any food truck... when we lived in Nashville, there were several goodies, but not where I am now. It's very sad. Weekend: dinner date with my husband's college roommate and his wife, meeting mom at the airport after a mission trip to Nicaragua, "Crazy Stupid Love" with the girls, and catching up with friends (and their fabulous kids) in from out of town. It was a good one!

Love your fall concert line up! The Avett Brothers are coming here and I'm debating on buying tickets! :).

This weekend we went to a wedding, had a breakfast date, and went and shot guns yesterday :). Mucho fun!

I had Nammi for the first time Friday and it was MAGICAL!! Def plan on having it again this Friday.
Best part of my weekend was driving my happy self out to Burleson to witness a very old friend of mine marry the man of her dreams. It was a suuuper casual wedding it someones driveway (with a bouncehouse and everything) but it was so perfect for them.

Went to the Conference of Creative Entrepreneurs in San Fran. Left with ridiculous inspiration, buckets of information, a new creative hero, and the desire to change what just hasn't been working. Never before have I been more excited re-vamp everything I'm doing and start again, nearly from scratch.

I've been on the same organizing binge, but I think for me it's called "nesting" ;)

Miss Mandi said...

Tiger's blood snowcones are THE BEST! Haven't been able to find one for years around these parts. Must send giant jug o' syrup to Colorado! :)
