On Friday night, I went to a birthday dinner for my friend Dawn. Dawn & I met in Seventh Grade & were best friends & roommates until I moved to NYC & she moved to Japan in 2000. We eventually fell out of touch with each other, but became reunited last year & now live down the street from each other. Of course we do.
On Saturday, I did my first two-a-day with Heidi. We ran 3 miles, then swam for 30 minutes, which was apparently enough to reawaken the sugar devil. I made these chocolate chunk cookies from my favorite food blog, Crepes of Wrath, & they were delicious!
If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know about this new $10 Pulaski chair. While the cookies were baking, I re-worked the furniture in our living room. I took the orange chair out & put the $10 chair in. I'm worried the chevron chair & red ottoman don't go with the bar cart & $10 chair, but I don't have anywhere else to put them. And I like them.
The living room has become a catch-all for all of my favorite finds, but is that a bad thing? Also, this picture reminds me that I need to replace the Ikea rug & coffee table we bought 4 years ago as temporary pieces & never replaced. Oy.
While I was Donna Reed-ing it up at home, John went to Grimey's to celebrate Record Store Day. This has been a very good year for John Baldwin Mastering. While the big project he's been working on all year isn't out yet, everything else is & was for sale on Saturday. He had a blast.
Oh, & P.S. - my new bike is awesome! OMG, it's such a huge difference riding a road bike after riding John's 100 lb mountain bike all last year. And I can shift it! I love my bike!
