exhaustingly good amounts of fun time this past weekend. weekend bits:

1.  new bird feeder project  2. selfie before the en vogue show  3 & 4. the terribly anticlimactic show that was somehow still tons of fun and i would go again in a heartbeat  5. tried el camino for the first time. thank goodness for healthy, cheap tacos. and i mean CHEAP.  6 & 7. year of the buffalo in-store at vinyl frontier. Mike arranged his first in store and i have to say, he picked a mighty fine band {biased!}.  8. darla worked her magic and made fast friends with the band. they gifted her a copy of their ep and a guitar pick. it’s been our soundtrack in the car ever since. you should check it out. NOW.  9. finished the weekend with a valentine-crafting & pizza party at our friends’.

weekend also included but not pictured: a karaoke session at mickey’s, sunday brunch with lady friends, darla’s introduction to star wars, and cousin hang-time at our place. all normal things like gym, grocery and housecleaning fit in where they could…or not.

i love busy weekends full of life. keep them coming.

i love weekends with my girl especially when it contains the following:

girlfriend movie night viewing of pride + prejudice, free columbus opera performance, fun fair at local middle school, 3 trips to the library, columbus museum of art play date and running into more friends, cousin play date for darla while i came home and got dishes, laundry, floors cleaned, hair done and nails done. and by done i mean clipped. that counts as done for me.

the cherry on top of this busyness sundae was the Black Keys show last night. i’m sore from head to heel.

more weekends like this one please.

activities at CMA. look at that girl stacking! for too long i have sat by as other children stacked their items neatly while darla discarded items willy nilly. now our day has come. there are signs that the girl understands order in the world.

*obviously i have never really been concerned about her lack of stacking
