Today's post is brought to you by the letter "S".
It's been snowing a ton here lately, which is unusual for March in the Seattle area except we're a ways East and at 900+ feet, so it's not out of the norm for us. After being home all day Monday due to getting our DirectTV installed and yesterday just because it was snowy and icky out, I was itching to get out today, so we went to storytime at the library and then to Starbucks. I also met up with a lady to buy her wooden horse stable that she was selling on Craiglist. I'd been wanting to get one for the girls but they're kind of expensive, and yesterday I just got to thinking about them out of the blue and decided to look on Craigslist and lo and behold, there it was, in my town and everything!
Tomorrow we are going to meet Grandma and the girls' great-aunt at the mall for lunch and a little shopping, and then the girls are going to go home with Grandma for a sleepover. Paul and I will have a night to ourselves and then Friday after work he's going to go spend the weekend at his parents and go skiing with his sister (her Christmas gift to him), and I will have the whole weekend to myself! I mostly want to shop, not necessarily to buy much (although I do have a ton of gift cards to redeem) but I just want to hit a bunch of stores that I never have time to go to. When I'm not out shopping, I have a bunch of projects to work on including tagging and organizing items for the upcoming consignment sale. I'm just so excited to have a weekend to myself to do whatever I want. I'm going to get Thai takeout and eat it while I watch Sex and the City, and I'm going to read some magazines and maybe take a bath. And I'm going to go to Starbucks one morning and sip a latte while I read a book.
Lastly, here's a cute picture of the girls with Maisy:
