The weekend is upon us again. This Saturday we will be heading to that pretty place above for a birthday party - not that exact spot, but to the gorge (hood river), so pretty. And considering it's been so gorgeous lately and we are in the thick of fall I am pretty excited.
Good news about my couch, I spoke with dania and they are going to send someone to look it. The bad news is I was told to call them back if I didn't hear from said person in 10 days. As much as I want a shiny new couch, and do have great plans on buying one in the future I hope mine can get fixed. I have other things on my mind and other plans on the horizon, and if I remember correctly finding my current sofa sucked about a month out of my life. I don't think I am ready to go through all that again.
In other news I found this little guy this week and I am in the throes of a bigger decision, one in which a new couch would probably be a bad idea. I have been a dog-person without a dog for most of my life. It's a big decision. One I don't take lightly. It's like deciding to have another child, that's what it is for me at least, and, really, what I think it should be for everyone. When pups are begotten based on impulse or cuteness overload, well, that's how a lot of doggies like this one end up in shelters. My heart is ready and I am pretty sure he is the best fit for us. I was convinced today and when I called to find out the process of adoption I was informed has a medical condition - so I need to figure out if we'd be the best fit for him and talk to a vet.
I can't believe Halloween is almost here and I have not one single costume idea for M+L! And wherever I asked them what they want to be they just say the first thing they see like "a remote" or "a car" or "a table." Um, no. I take costumes pretty seriously and the fact I have twins adds to that craziness exponentially. I really like the whole "pair" idea and considering their suggestions I feel I can take the lead. But I am stumped. If any of you have any ideas of paired customs that are awesome (and 5 year old would think were awesome too) do let me know! If anyone has just one little guy I am head over heels for this one here.
Last but not least Wednesday I finally got someone to come out and look at my cable/internet connection. Not only did the guy finally fix but he was all "hey i love your chairs. i just bought an eames-style rocker last night." and "i love your light fixture" and "wow, that's contact paper. i thought it was wallpaper!" (full disclosure i pointed that last one out to him). We spent the whole time he was souping up my cable talking design - how fun is that?! He showed me some photos on his phone of some projects he has been working on, like this one here that I totally want to try (in which he also introduced to that lovely new blog. how did i not know about almost makes perfect before?). I am just hoping he doesn't out me on all the dust bunnies I have behind my cable boxes.
Any weekend plans for you?
