monday off

mike had yesterday off because of columbus day-only bankers and postal workers and schools have off on columbus day, so we made the most of it.  we began our day by having a breakfast picnic in our room while watching disney princess singalong (exciting!)

then we went to the park and played for awhile.  sadie loves to cover my shoes with the bark from the playground!

it was so cute to watch mike (trying) to slide down the tiny kid slides with sadie!
  our playground does not have those swings with the buckets on them so toddlers can swing alone, so i  swing with sadie trying to keep her on my lap and swing in a straight line...
 in the little house with daddy
 after coming back from the park, mike and i went to lunch at panera while mom watched sadie.  i had the chicken artichoke panini-the new one- the first time i ate i was blown away at how yummy it was, but this time it wasn't fantastic.  the potato soup was awesome as always.  then we went to the vitamin shoppe to get some natural stress relief...mike and i decided we both needed something to help us calm down. ha!
 after that, we made our way to the movie theater to see dolphin tale, but apparently every single kid out of school also went to see it, because it was sold out!! so instead we saw the help (2nd time for me) and i still loved it and cried.
sadie was so happy to see us when we got home-i love that she gets so excited to see us-after dinner, we played outside until bedtime.  then i finished the book i was reading...sophie kinsella's mini shopaholic.  i can so relate-is that bad?!

updated dining area, a quick lunch, and a festival

i'm finally getting around to showing you our dining area...i mentioned that i had ordered some chairs from pier one, well they came in weeks ago but i didn't have my table decorated yet, so i'm just now posting pics of it!  the chairs are very similar to a chair i found in the ballard designs catalog (do you get that catalog? i looove it)

they are creamy with gray french writing on them and look really good with our dark wood farm table.  then i had some rewards bucks at pier 1, so i got these placemats and napkins and napkin rings...if you are looking for napkins/napkin rings pier 1 is the place to go, there are so many choices!

 sadie got in the pic. she loves these chairs and tries to climb up on them all the time.
 the orange pumpkins were a gift from susanne years ago, i still love them! the big white one and the little sparkly one i probably got at hobby lobby on sale.
 saturday at lunch we met susanne and mckinlee at jason's deli for a quick lunch...they were in town because of a wedding the night before, so we had a fun little visit with them.  when i was getting ready to leave, sadie was trying to climb in their car and kept saying "sadie just go in zizi's car." ha! 

 saturday afternoon, mike and i went to an event here called the wine & food festival. we had never been but it was really fun.  there were sooo many vendors sampling different wines and local restaurants with tons of food to eat.
it was super can see it from the pictures..

 my little plate of yummies.  my favorites were the chicken spaghetti and the spinach dip. oh and they had a dessert and champagne tent with wonderful pumpkin spice cake!
 mike after taking a bite (he's going to love me for posting this one :)

we finished our weekend right by watching pan am last night! do you love that show? i do.
now if i could get rid of the cold i've been battling for 7 days now, i would be much happier!!

have a great monday.
