A Fairly Relaxing Saturday.... it when the day isn't a hustle and bustle of trying to get everything done. Heather is the wife of one of Aaron's good friends, and we found ourselves kindred spirits since we met. The boys do Fantasy Football together, and we met during a "Draft Day." The twins were babies, and we spent the day nursing our respective babies and taking care of them while the boys did their thing. We're both working moms, so we relate to things such as insane schedules and daycare costs. Both married to teachers, we relate on that level, too. Unfortunately, because of nutty lives, we hardly ever see eachother, and we NEVER do anything just the two of us. Not that we mind that much, but we thought it would be nice to at least go to lunch together. So we made plans about a month ago to have lunch. And it happened! So we had a leisurely lunch at a place called Barcelona Tapas. Such a nice place. And we had some yummy, yummy food.
.....Heather always looks put together, too. Yesterday, she shared her secret with me. We went to a consignment shop called the Toggery. It's in a nicer part of Indianapolis, so you're likely to find name brand clothing. And since I'm finding it harder and harder to keep my dress pants up, I was in desperate need of some new ones. So we went there yesterday, and I was able to snag the CUTEST. JACKET. EVER., another really cute blazer (yes, I'm seeing the irony of the lack of pants thusfar!), three shirts, and two pair of dresspants. All for $85. The downside to this is that the money was supposed to be my camera money (which I'm giving up the dream soon, as I don't think I'll ever have the necessary funds amassed for such a large purchase). I was happy with my purchases, though, and can't wait to wear my new stuff.

Barcelona Tapas is my favorite restaurant ever, seriously. Very very good food, and I love the sangria there. Glad you had a good weekend! You'll have to show me this shop because I'm in need of some new work clothing myself!
