Friends it was a nutty weekend.
We had back-to-back commitments both days, which kicked off with a school fundraiser party involving a bunch of very cool moms, Thai food, ginger infused cocktails and riding through downtown for two hours on a trolley and ending with a school birthday party bash on a giant catamaran. Seriously cool.
There was also dinner Saturday night at lovely cousin Erin and boyfriend Ben's killer new house (photos below). They recently became first-time homeowners scoring a mid-century gem designed by architect Cliff May. It is splendid. We're so excited for them, and the girlies have already claimed a room...
But the centerpiece of the weekend was the six hours spent Saturday at ballet. Both Millie and Audrey had their weekly class and afterward Audrey auditioned for the Nutcracker.
Frankly it was a little nerve wracking...for me, and I actually debated waiting another year before I let her try out, but she was insistent and (and this was the selling point) totally mellow about the whole enterprise. For example, when I explained that this was just a "try out" and that she may not get to be in it, she replied, totally nonplussed, "that's ok, I'll just try again next year."
How could I say no to that.
