We got up early this morning and dropped off Dawson to get groomed. We then hit up Target where we were the ONLY customers in the store. I'm not kidding - it was like a perfect dream. Then we went home to get ready so we could go to play group.
It was at Amanda's house again today (in the blue) and that is always a GOOD thing because she goes all out and is an amazing cook. We had chicken shish-ka-bobs (a personal favorite) and beans and potato salad and banana pudding. SO good!
I counted and I'm pretty sure there were 13 moms and 17 children (under 5) there! That's a crowd!
The bigger kids had fun playing outside in the pool and sand. It was WAY too hot for us to be outside more than a couple of minutes.
Harper had a cute dress on that I just love but she did not act so cute at play group. She was okay for part of the time but then it was naptime and she was letting us all know it.
She did act good for my friend Isabel for a few minutes. Isabel is moving to NC soon and I'm so sad. We were not off of Amanda's street before Harper was sound asleep.
But her nap had to be quick because we were home for a quick meal and I took her to the doctor because she had a hangnail that had become infected (is it always something with me and her? I feel like we go to the doctor every week. ha! This is so weird for me because I managed to go about 12 years after college without going to the doctor ONCE). ha! We stopped by my old office (which is next to my doctor's office) to visit and then we picked up Dawson who was trimmed and sporting a Scooby Doo bandana.
So - onto our bedroom. I've decided in the last few months that I'm ready for a change in our room. I'm not real fond of our comforter set. It's just time for something new. I bought our bedroom furniture when I was still single and had bought my first home. My mom advised me to buy a king bed and that I would thank her once I was married and she was right.
Nothing much on the other wall but our armoire (and Harper's bouncy seat). Our room is where all the baby stuff has collected I guess.
You can see where Harper is sleeping in her pack and play but this weekend we are going to try and move to her room. I'll let you know how it goes. We actually tried tonight and realized the sun sets on that set of the house and she has an early bedtime and it's WAY too bright in there so tomorrow I'm going to look for some black out panels.
This is kind of what I want to do in our room. I REALLY want a big fluffy white comforter and then a brown coverlet and brown curtains with pillows with maybe some blue accents.
Am I crazy with a baby and a dog that sleeps with us to do white??? What do you think???
These are all along the idea of what I want to do in the next few months. I'm about to make some changes to our family room and then maybe towards the end of the year I'll start on our bedroom. In the meantime - I'm shopping for ideas so I can't wait to see what you all have done in your master bedrooms!
P.S. Can you believe Michael Jackson died??? I know he defined the word CRAZY but there is no way if you are anywhere near my age that you can't tell me you didn't love the Thriller album or remember seeing that video for the first time? I was in 5th grade and MTV had just started and we got to watch the video in class (I have no idea why?) I was probably wearing friendship bead bracelets and playing atari at home after bringing home my pacman lunchbox and listening to "Beat It", "Billie Jean" and "PYT".
P.P.S. When I get the energy and most importantly the time - I'll go back and make links that go to each Friday's post for quick looks!!!
