Scenes from the Weekend

lovely art (i'll tell more on Thursday...)

chocolate from Dude, Sweet (so yummy + love the packaging...)

clothes from baby bean vintage

It was another good weekend, despite the fact that it was insanely, ridiculously, mind-blowingly hot -- just a whisper away from 100 degrees even, and there’s no sign if it letting up. Yes, I know, talking about the weather is a bit banal, and yes, I realize I live in Texas, which is nightmarishly hot in the summer, but friends, it’s only June. I expect this kind of heat in July and August…But June??!! Ok, I’m done.

Some Highlights:
  • A Saturday morning trip to the inaugural White Rock Local Market. I was so excited about this, as there’s a dearth of cool, local outdoor markets in the area, and it definitely lived up to my expectations.

    I was especially smitten with the chocolates from Dude, Sweet (great name, no?), and I picked up two lovely dresses for Millie (one of which I realized after the fact was called the Millie crochet daydress) from Christine of Baby Bean vintage. (She’s also the co-creator of the perfection that is Small Magazine)…Very fun chatting with her + her hubby Steve (He’s responsible for a lot of Small’s brilliant photography.).

  • A long overdue date with sweet hubby – dinner at our favorite restaurant + a late evening screening of Away We Go… it was sweet and sad and funny, definitely worth a watch.

  • Sunday dinner with lovely cousin Erin and boyfriend Ben -- I made a dessert involving rhubarb + got Audrey to try five new foods. Details here.
How was your weekend?

Sounds great! Ours was wonderful too - but gosh, it WAS SOOO hot, wasn't it?!

I am glad to hear that you liked Away We Go. We thought it looked great in previews, but the reviews have not been good.

Joslyn, i HEAR YOU on the heat. Here in Austin we are wilting under it, and i'm finding it hard to believe that people in other parts of the country are "enjoying the weather" via picnics and outdoor BBQ's. Le sigh.

I hear you about the heat too. We had not electricity for several days as we got knock out during the storms in Dallas. My husband was being positive, but as we entered our third day without power, I became a grump. Our house felt like a tomb. Even the pool went green due to all the rain and no filtration.
I am ready for some solar panels on my roof to prevent this from happening again.
