this was maker faire weekend! talk about alternative. I'm sure you've never seen so many urban hippies and techno-nerds in one place.

fun, fun, fun!

I went with these cool kids!

mary & megan

cece, fi & scott

we saw:

flame throwing
metal sculpture
fashion shows
striped tights and wristlets (how eighties!)
alternative crafts
multi-cultural fuds
coke fountains
a life-sized mouse trap
leggo cities
and mucho technology

what a day!

it was a good distraction from what was going on, on the other side of town! I put a bid on a condo! in the ensuing panic, where I regretted my decision and tried to talk myself out of such a commitment, the voice of reason pointed out that it was a good investment (what's my money doing anyway?), and I would have a place of my very own!

I'm already considering cool vinyl wall decor, bar stools, a new dining set (Ikea, of course!), and drapes, and rugs. its been so long since I allowed myself to imagine decorating a home. this place has granite counter tops, travertine flooring, all new brushed metal appliances, the cutest laundry room with a black and white checkered floor, a deck, crown moulding, wood floors, and best of all...a garage! tres exciting! pray that the realty company accepts my offer!!! if they do, I'll post photos!!!

for the week, all day "effective communication" training on monday and tuesday. I'm so looking forward to that, NOT! I think I'm already really good at blah, blah, blah! haha!

gotta get in some workouts, score keeping at the basketball tourney at work, lunch with Gail & Estor and hopefully finding out about the condo!

happy week y'all!!!

Home buyingn is stressful! And it's a big commitment. That being said, it's sooooo worth it, keep decorating it in your mind and good luck. I want photos!
