weekend love.

Crazy how quickly spring comes to Cali. {Then again, it never really leaves when winters consist of 50 degree days and a few inches of rain.} I am loving the fact that trees are blossoming all over the city. Oodles of pretty pink blooms just in time for love day. It's oh-so dreamy. We had the nicest little weekend enjoying it all:
Friday night we went on a date at our neighborhood theater to see Slumdog Millionaire. I know, I am probably the last person on earth to see this movie! But I loved it. It was such a fresh story and has a little bit of everything--from drama, to romance, to bathroom humor. Definitely one of the best movies I've seen in awhile, and not one I will soon forget. A word of warning; I would not recommend it to anyone who is squeamish about creepy torture scenes, though...Saturday a.m. we slept in and had the yummiest brunch: Croissant breakfast sandwiches with bacon, spinach, eggs, + cheddar cheese. We worked on some random projects around the house and took the most amazing walk to the beach. I then went on a mad cleaning spree and completely neatened and reorganized my entire crafting world. I even folded all of my fabric scraps and hung a new French bulletin board inside one of the closet doors. {Note this year's Valentine prototypes on display.} There's something about a clean desk that makes me want to dive back into a new, messy project! :)Sunday after church we had lunch w/ Jeff's grandma, and headed to PB Kids to splurge on the finishing touch for baby's nursery: This beautiful upholstered rocker! I just couldn't find anything like it on Craigslist and considering that we scored the rest of the nursery furniture there, I'd say the splurge was justified. ;) As an added bonus: it is slip-covered for easy clean-up and it will look great in our living room once baby outgrows it. Doesn't even look like a rockin' chair, does it!? Am so giddy about all of the cuddling and story times that are going to happen here!
Sunday eve we cuddled up in front of the flat screen to catch a little Pro-Bowl + Grammy action. Between sock monkey sewing and during commercial breaks, I spent time staring at my ugly bare toesies, complaining to Jeff about how unruly my toenails had become...That over this basketball belly, I can no longer reach them without serious cramps, body contortions and tingling limbs. And that's when cupid came...An early Valentine's day miracle: He trimmed and painted those gnarly toenails of mine. Lavender. He'll be embarrassed to discover that I posted this, but seriously, if that's not love, I don't know what is. :)

Awww...that is so sweet! I love the chair. I'm wanting one for our bedroom to snuggle in. I've been on a cleaning out and organizing kick too. I just haven't found the time to do it all. Takes forever to reorganize a 1800 sq. ft house with 4 people in it! lol I can't wait to see what sweet things come out of your newly cleaned craft space!
