Weekend This and That

Dell Harper is in camp this week, so I have been planning on starting the packing process. Camp is now halfway over and I have 1) picked up packing paper for wrapping dishes from my parents' house  2) raided their fridge, 3) gone to the consignment boutique, 4) taken a nap, 5) driven sleeping kiddos around in circles, 6) cleaned my house, 7) done laundry, 8) stared at a lease for work and 9) taken boxes from carport to dining room. No packing yet.  I've managed to hit Chick-Fil-A twice in two days (DH's obsession with applesauce and a 5:20 Deeds doctor appointment last night), yet have packed nary a thing.

Moving on-

We went to two fun parties last Friday night.

Prosecco and good sushi always makes for a great evening.  Especially when both of your children sleep through the night.  Hurrah for wonderful baby-sitters, especially ones who tell you whether your outfit looks good.

DH and I hit up Earthfare bright and early Saturday morning to take advantage of a free pound of peaches with $10 purchase offer.  Then we spied a good looking yard sale across the street.  I might be banned from Craigslist, but nothing was said about the dangers of yard sales.

 I found this Pottery Barn Kids chair for $10 and snagged it for a friend with a Miles.  DH found her new best friend- "his name is Rockabye, and he is two and half.  He my friend".

I also scored some Pottery Barn bedding for our new guest room.
After naps, DH and I hit the pool for her to play with some buddies.  

Morgan and I ate a late adult only dinner of grilled pork chops, tomato tart, cucumber salad and peach cobbler.

In other news, I just now learned that my carseat (which I have had for 2.5 years now), has this little visor thing on the shade.
I honestly don't know how my kids would make it if I didn't have all of my friends telling me how to take care of them.  

On that note, have y'all ever done baking soda baths for diaper rash?  My friend Libby gave me a heads up, and it definitely eases the discomfort.

Okay.  I have nothing else to ramble on about.  It's time to bite the bullet and begin to pack.  Or perhaps take care of some work stuff, then wash all the sheets and towels in the house, and empty the dishwasher. . .


  1. I just love your rambling posts…you so speak to the momma that I was. I would have loved having the internet back in the "old days". The tomato tart looks so wonderfully delicious.

  2. I'm going to need details on that lovely tomato tart!

  3. Total yard sale scores! When you get to packing closets, I totally packed all of SS kids clothes still on the hanger, in trash bags. It worked like a charm. And then I could just put them in the next closet. That tart is the stuff my dreams are made of. SS is going to be really jealous of rockabye!

  4. Awesome! That tart looks incredible! Great scores at the sales. And best of luck with packing - I totally understand the desire to put that off as long as possible.

  5. You have excellent PB Quilt Taste (that's our master quilt...it actually looks rather good with the yellow paisley duvet at the foot -- hooray pattern mixing!)!

  6. Great pics of your kiddos :) They are precious! Yummy looking food. I think you're a pretty awesome cook. Also, I don't blame you for not wanting to pack.... it's the worst! Oh yeah, great finds at the garage sale.


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
