Things I Love Thursday
 Lazy, lazy, lazy weekend. With my laptop out of commission, I packed up the pup and headed to my parents house on both Sat and Sun. While the pool is still way too cold to go swimming, I put on my swimsuit anyway and got a little sun while reading Cesar’s Way. I love vacationing at their house, it’s always quiet and peaceful and nice to get away from all the chores I should be doing at my own house. We had burrito bowls for dinner outside on the deck. All the excitement of hanging out with my parents caught up with Slayer and he was passed out the entire ride home.
 The mass hysteria that occurred at work when sparrows attacked the robins nest we’ve been watching for weeks. One baby bird was tossed out of the nest and the entire newsroom went running outside to save the rest. I remained at my desk reading blogs, unaffected, until my coworker came at me with said baby bird, dead on a piece of cardboard, begging me to help her bury it. Um…no.
 My new ridiculously high wedges. (from Bakers) I ordered the to wear in Vegas, but I’m going to need some seriously practice before I can confidentially strut around without watching for twigs and cracks in the sidewalk. Speaking of Vegas…I’ve never been before and I’m not quite sure what to wear. We’re going to a punk show and Cirque. I’m sure there will be lots of walking around. Any suggestions??
 After a relaxing, yet exhausting weekend I went home, showered, put on my pjs and went over to Pants’ apartment to snuggle on the couch to watch last week’s TV on Hulu and eat cake batter ice cream.
 Unloading tons of stuff at my parent’s garage sale. While I only made $13 I was mostly happy to clean out the spare bedroom and basement. I had five extra lamps and four sets up curtains that were in the house when I bought it. It’s always relieving to get rid of stuff. My rule is always – if I haven’t used it in a year, it’s gone.
Also…mining for peanut butter cups, my first foray into tanning (I made Jenn go with me…it was kinda scary!), finally beating Jessica and Pants at Words (!!!), devouring a ginormous plate of nachos for lunch, writing in my new teal journal (hundreds of empty pages make me very happy), black on black Dakine houndstooth weekender, rain rain every day, grocery shopping with mom, barely doing my hair or wearing makeup and still feeling pretty, running with the pup, having an iPhone and taking a million more photos than I used to, getting my laptop back all fixed and with all my files (!!!), finally getting to finish my latest client design, new aerial opportunities!05.26.11 in happiness
