Ever head to Ikea, just to eat the meatballs (or 99p breakfast in our case) and to be inspired?? Seriously, we got out of there spending less than a tenner. It was the first day of Easter Break, and the weather wasn't great, so we just let the boy run around the place, took lots of pictures, ate cheap food, and thought about ideas for the next house.
Later in the week, we made marbled Easter Eggs with Shaving Cream painting. I got the idea from smilemonsters Linky Party (on my sidebar). She has a post most Fridays with lots of things to do with kids.
Since Paul was home for the 2 weeks, I was able to escape to The Makery and FINALLY learn how to sew on a zipper!! (It is much easier than it seems, now that I have had a formal lesson.)
And I got to help my friend, Kirsty, make this amazing looking Hello Kitty cake. So fun!
Nope. I don't want to leave Bath. I was able to spend some good time with friends and will be savoring every moment with them in the weeks to come. I really wish the UK and the US were closer....
And on a totally unrelated note, I am sooo making this for my chihuahua loving dad.
Today I showed the house (to sell) to a Lady. As in "married-to-a-Lord". To me, being American, it sounded all fancy, which made me go into overdrive cleaning the house. I might be in bed before 9pm tonight! She was lovely, and actually a completely down to earth grandma who was super sweet to the baby.
We are moving, so the last thing I need to obsess about is party planning. There are so many great sites with beautiful tablescapes and decorations, that it makes me want to plan and have a party. I get so excited to see coordinated colors and yummy food, all organized and pretty.
