first weekend in october

i've realized my last few entries were pretty much only pictures, no words. so what have we been up to? perhaps more than we should be. i might just collapse tonight, but it's good tired...great tired. i got to spend a significant amount with friends and family this weekend. what else can a girl ask for?

friday night was taqueria del sol on cheshire bridge. if you haven't tried taqueria, there's a problem, but i hadn't been to this location before and i have to say i prefer the larger space and more adequate seating. it was an absolute pleasure to see margot, her sister molly, their wonderful friends, rachel, and my fastly fleeting jodi. have i mentioned she's moving away? probably not, because i pretend it's not happening.







saturday was a family walk to the square (i think i pulled my groin) to visit our favorite deli and then i made a camera strap cover. later. saturday night was an impromptu celebration of dear erin's birth and karina's last minute trip up. the stars were aligned. we started the night at krog bar. i loved krog bar, it's this teeny tiny wine and tapas bar owned by kevin rathbun. the small plates were simple and fresh and the wine selection was stellar. can i have a glass of veuve now please? then we walked through the krog tunnel to estoria. i had the most amazing turkey burger there. good grief. such a fun time, my sweet husband was on dad duty giving me a nice night out.

today was so great. really great. i had been looking forward to the field of greens festival all week. i was extremely excited about seeing kevin gillespie, my absolute favorite contender on top chef.
i was so excited to be able to support local farmers who had been affected by the floods and to try all of the amazing food. there was such a great energy, lots of cute animals, and a bbq cook off. it was pretty much perfect. ok, i think that's all i'll write this week. if you read this- thank you, for caring, for loving us, and for reading this little blog.

Matilda looks like she just saw a rainbow for the first time in that pic with me. Neither of us are looking at the camera.

I think you need a post devoted to your hair. How you style it... simply how you make it look so darn cute!
