I mean, really? As if sitting in traffic for over an hour this morning due to the monsoon we were having wasn't bad enough. I want to go home and start the day over. So now I'm patiently waiting for Gap to open so I can buy a new tank. I did my research and they are 40% off right now. Even better.
Yesterday I took the day off from work. It was my birthday after all. Sitting under florescent lights is not my idea of fun. And your birthday is supposed to be a fun day, right?
I slept in til 8 - which was amazing. I love not waking up to the sound of my alarm. Tiko and I went for a nice long walk and then I got ready to start my errands. I made a list the night before of all the places I needed and wanted to go. The list was pretty long but I was excited to get it all accomplished. When I grabbed my list before running out the door, I noticed a cute little happy birthday message from the Hubs on it. So sweet.
A new address means a new license. The thought of taking a new picture with my "
I ran a few more errands and then tackled the "fun" errands. All of which consisted on shopping for the house. First stop - HomeGoods. I was on a hunt for a fun end table to place next to my glider in the nursery. Sadly, I didn't find what I was looking for. BUT I did purchase this awesome cork board for only $19. And to think I was going to purchase the exact same thing online for over double that amount. Silly girl.
This morning I always purchased these from PB to complete our mud room.
Then I went to
This morning I ordered this dress because I cannot find it anywhere in my size. And I love it oh so much. So my style.
I then went to the paint store for the second time. I have finally found the perfect shade of gray to paint the nursery. Platinum Gray by Benjamin Moore. It's exactly what I set out the first time to look for but did not find. Project Paint the Nursery will be underway this weekend.
I then found a glider that I'm giddy about and added it to my registry. Altho, I'm not optimistic that I will receive it as a gift. It's pricey. My mother-in-law tends to think I might since a lot of family members like to go in together on big ticket items. If I don't receive it, I will definitely order it myself. It's super comfy. I didn't want to get out of it after giving it a spin yesterday.
I came home from my errands and the Hubs cooked me my favorite dinner - chicken, tomatoes and artichoke with a side of corn. Mmmm - I can't wait for leftovers tonight. And this is coming from a girl who refuses to eat leftovers so you know it must be good. I really couldn't have asked for a better day.
Tomorrow night we are celebrating my birthday with good friends at Oceanaire - which is one of the best seafood restaurants in Minneapolis. I can't wait to relax, enjoy some amazing seafood and laughs with good friends.
Gap is finally open. Time to replace this stained tank. Ugh.
