Last weekend I was lucky enough to spend a little time with EACH of my kids.
Saturday was a trip to Seattle to spend the day with my daughter. I've always wanted to try macarons and she had some waiting for me when I got there!
By the way, do any of you find it strange that I actually took 239 pictures of these macarons? Really. 239 photos of macarons on a milk glass pedestal.
I'm still not sure if I actually like them, to eat this is. They're kind of unusual, but they are very photogenic!
We didn't just spend the day looking at macarons. We stopped in our favorite local coffee shop for one of the the best lattes around. Unlike most coffee spots, they make each drink individually... no steaming milk for multiple cups at once. They even fancy it up with a pretty design in the foam.
We then hit up World Market and Ikea. I was shopping for curtains for the windows at our latest project, Kermit's Kastle. I'd pictured a specific set of Ikea curtains in the dining room... a set that has been around for years... unfortunately for me they have stopped making this design! I did find another set I liked at Ikea but no such luck at World Market on the curtain front.
Lunch at Chipotle, a stop at a paint store and then we were on to a street festival in a local small town.
Late afternoon found us at a local grocery store to stock up on the BEST pico de gallo and homemade flour tortillas to take home to Red Gate Farm.
Shopping at Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn rounded out the day.
An unplanned visit when he stopped by for a homemade, as in not frozen/microwaved/fast food, dinner and brought me hydrangeas cut from his own plants.... Beautiful dark purple ones that are quite large.
So, it was a great weekend, spending time with each of my kids.
