And So It Goes

I hope you enjoyed your Valentine's Day. I took Thursday and Friday off of work to hook up with Monday so I've been enjoying an extra, extra long weekend. Thursday I ran some errands and took myself to Anthropologie. It was a very fruitful visit, I bought a gorgeous plum colored dress, a violet colored sweater, spice jars numbered 1-5 and a sweet little tea towel all for under a $100.00. THAT's never happened before!

Friday I spent some time with the kids playing and napping and that evening we took them to the drive-in to see Tooth Fairy and Percy Jackson. When the hubs got home from work I had the kids bathed, in their pajambo's with pillows and a quilt in the trunk. I thought it was great that all 5 of us saw two movies for $14.50 but what I really enjoyed was how comfy we all were tucked in to the front seat of my Yukon with the smell of Baby Magic in the air. Such good times.

Saturday we ran here and there and played some cards and that evening my sisters and I went to a Billy Joel & Elton John concert. It was great. You know how it is when you go to a concert, you have one or two songs you hope they'll sing. For me it was Uptown Girl & And So It Goes by Billy Joel. It was getting danger close to the end of the concert and he didn't sing either, until his encore. He ended with Uptown Girl. I didn't expect it at all but my eyes instantly got misty as soon as it started and my mind took me back to a brownie meeting where Lori Moran asked us if we wanted to hear the new tape she had gotten for her birthday and I heard the song for the first time. That was almost 30 years ago. I just don't know where the time has gone! He didn't sing And So It Goes but at that point I was so sentimental I probably would have really started tearing up.

Today we celebrated Valentine's Day by taking the kids to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. It was such a beautiful day with sunshine we haven't seen in quite awhile. Tomorrow is our 13th anniversary. We're both off so we might go to SF for the day.

Since I don't have to get up early tomorrow I think I'll spend some time at my work table and see what I can start on. I'm kind of between projects right now so we'll just see where the night takes me.

I LOVE your new banner! What a great idea to use photos of your studio as your banner! I took your advice and got the zip-divider cloth boxes for my dresser from Ikea. When I actually have my whole new studio/art room finished I may be more organized than I ever have been in my life! Keep up the nice work on your wonderful blog! :)
