7 Things

It’s Monday morning. My alarm went off at 5:30am as it has everyday for the last couple of months. I am trying to become a morning person you see. So far I have succeeded 50% of the time, which is a good start for a perpetual night owl like me.

Here are my 7 favorite highlights (in no particular order) from last weekend which I have deemed as the weekend of maximum fun. We had SO MANY events and somehow we made it to all and had a great time.

1. Gardening with Dad

Let’s just say there is nothing cuter than watching Dev work in the yard. Well may be one thing, when he does so with the kids. He may not be the guy who randomly surprises me with flowers per say. Instead, he is the guy who plants me a beautiful garden each year.

2. Babies in vintage hats worn backwards

3. Block Parties with Donuts on a string

4. Purple Pancakes

I pureed frozen blueberries and added them to the Kodiak pancake mix because cooking pancakes with whole blueberries has never quite worked out for me because it wouldn’t cook through. THIS however was goooood!

5. Italian Kiwi?

6. Kurt Vonnegut

In my formative years, I went through a Vonnegut phase and remember nothing of it { except Gal├ípagos which is so strange that it’s hard to forget }. Happy to be reading his stuff again. Currently reading God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater.

7. Birthday Gifts

I think I may have settled on a universal birthday gift for all my kids’ friends. Sketch books + markers { two things gs that STILL get me excited }. And also because parents are going mad with all the junk in the house and I don’t want to add more to it. If I am short on time, I get the Mando Llama sketchbook from Target, but if I plan ahead I customize the set of three sold at Pinhole Press.
