Treasure Hunt Goodies

We found this little PINK chair and I fell in love with it.
It will be getting a makeover.
Dan and I are not big fans of the color pink.
I'll show it to you when it's all prettied up.

Bono Baby likes it already.
Pink and all.

I found this little girls dress.
I think it will look adorable with a red and white striped shirt underneath it.
Now we just need a little girl to dress up.

Dan found some great books of poetry at the Seattle library book sale.
He was so super excited.

Happy Weekend Wishes Dear Friends

I've Been Dreaming About Cupcakes

A few weeks ago we went on a tour of Boehm's Candies.

Mount Rainier's (Dans favorite Beohm chocolate) in the making.

Hand rolled truffles

Chocolate Salmon for Salmon Days Festivities.

We're detoxing right now (phase one of South Beach) and I've been dreaming about sweets and cupcakes.
Revisiting this little trip to the chocolate store makes me feel like I just had a treat.
A treat with zero guilt.

P.S. My favorite part of the tour was in Mr. Boehm's apartment above the candy shop.
He had the same little girl lounging on a mushroom that I grew up with.
My Daddy always had this little girl sitting next to his bed.
He said it was his "Moonbeam" (his nickname for my Mommy).
He liked to pat her cute little bum.

I Wish I Could Go Back In Time

I want so badly to go back in time and take all of my college classes over again.
I missed out on so much.
I was too busy thinking about boys and playtime with my buddies.

It is so much fun to go back and re-learn.
I had so much fun at the Wyeth Art History Lecture tonight.
I thought I'd share some of my favorite paintings.

What classes do you wish you could take over?

note: I wish I could re-take all of my Fashion Design, Art History, and Anthropology courses.

This makes me happy today.

Happy First Day of Autumn

Andrew Wyeth: Distant Thunder

We are going to the library to learn more about Andrew Wyeth tonight.
We want to be prepared for our visit to The Seattle Art Musuem to see the Wyeth Exhibit.
We've been putting off our visit so we could go to this library event first.
I'm pretty excited about it.

In other news, today is the first day of Autumn.
I couldn't be happier.
I can't wait to wear my cozy warm sweaters, hats, and scarves.

What is your favorite thing about this time of year?

Dan is taking me to see Bright Star this week.
I'm looking foward to it.
I love going on "HOT" dates with my Daniel.

What are you looking foward to this week?

Update: We went on our date today. Bright Star is a must see.
I promiss.

There is a little girl named Toots in the movie who reminded me so much of you.
I fell in love with her.
I think you will adore this movie most of all.

My Treasure Basket Is Overflowing

My husband is home.
My Cammy is home.
My Garage Sale partner is home.
And he brought TREASURE from my real "home" in California.
He brought these adorable GNOMES which were waiting for me at my Mommy's.
They were wrapped up all pretty and tied with a big pink bow.
The happiest of birthday presents from my Jeannine and Sarah-friend.
I LOVE them.

We found this picnic/sewing basket at a garage sale this morning.

I can't wait to put all of my sewing supplies in it.
I'm sure it will go on a few picnic adventures too.

Oh, this is the coolest of all.
Devon sent me this book for my birthday.

Lookie, it's a secret book for me to hide my most secret treasures.
He filled it up with Polaroids of some of my favorite people in the world.
He is so creative and wonderful.
Devon, you are the COOLEST.

We found this little gem of a frame at a garage sale this morning too.
I'm collecting oval frames for a project I have up my sleeve.

My Mommy has been collecting them for me too.
She sent me these.

Thank you for all of my new treasures.
I feel so loved.

p.s. I am so super happy that my Daniel is home safe and sound.

Happy Weekend Friends

I'm feeling down today.
I'm anxious for Dan to get home and make everything better.
(He's went to California to pick up my cammy)
I miss him.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend filled with favorite people and adventure.

We Miss You Already

Dear Daniel,
We miss you.
We hope your flight went well.
We hope you don't get too sad while your in Monrovia, CA without us.
We're always there in spirit but we wish we were with you just the same.
Try not to have too much fun with Mommy and Dad CJ.
Enjoy your In-N-Out burger and your apple fritter from Christies.
You deserve them.
Drive home safe, Dear Daniel.
You are some serious precious cargo and we need you to come home to us safe and sound.
Give everyone a big hug from Kitty and Bono Baby.
We LOVE you.
p.s. This song goes out to you my Dear Daniel.
You can hum it to yourself and think of me.
I'll hum it to you when you get home.
Our State Fair, Is A Great State Fair.

We had so much fun at The Puyallup Fair.

We made so many new little friends.

My favorite were the little piggies.

The little pink ones are so ladylike.
I love to watch them walk away.
The have the cutest little behinds.
I also love that they walk like they are always wearing 4 inch. heals.
So dainty.

We saw so many beautiful animals.

We stopped for foot massages and elephant ears.

Cotton Candy and corn on the cob too.

The cotton candy lady hooked us up.

I love the Tilt-A-Whirl.
I had to put this photo up for you, Amy.
In honor of our Tilt-A-Whirling in the 8th grade at The Monrovia Day Carnival.
I will never forget.


The swing rides are so beautiful but they scare me.

Oh, sweet piggies, I wish you never grew up.
I wish you could stay young and pink and dainty.
Don't we all?

It was a lovely day.
The perfect "official" trip to the fair.
I wish we could have all met up at the Tilt-A-Whirl and giggled the afternoon away.
Over a candied apple, of course.

I Know What I Like, And I Like What I Saw

We're going to the State Fair today.
We watched State Fair to get ready for the big day.
It's my first offical trip to the fair.
I am so excited.
I hope I get to see piggies.

Our First Kiss

We went to Alki Beach today.
We went to visit the bench where Dan first kissed me.

It was late at night on our first date. I came up to Seattle to meet him face to face. We had been talking for a few months. We spent the day exploring downtown Seattle. Then he took me to "our" bench.

The moon was full, sitting next to the Space Needle.
Dan describes the event better here.

Today, Bono Baby went to meet our special bench.

I think he liked it just as much as we do.

That night after we spent some time on that bench we walked around and Dan came to a decision: whatever song was playing when we got back in the car would be our song.
It's embarrassing but here goes:
Chop Suey by System Of A Down

When I worked in Alaska, I loved to find wishing rocks like this one.

Make a Wish!

p.s. Where did your favorite first kiss take place?
Do you share a song with someone special?
