weekend scene

Wow what a weekend. What is it about a white flag? Doesn't that mean when you wave one that you are surrendering? If that is the case then there are days I feel like waving a white flag. Usually it's not over something big but a bunch of little things that have piled up.

A few things:

*The Olympics were inspiring.
*It's time to take a moment to post on the family blog. I feel like I have so much to say about this Motherhood thing.
*There's a new gourmet pie place that just opened up, down the road. It is operated by 2 local women who clearly have a passion for making pies. I hope it is good because I love finding a new small business to support.
*Needed to use up my sour cream so I made the above pancakes. Didn't know I needed honey butter with cinnamon and toasted pecans as a topping until I came across this recipe.
*Sometimes I fly by the seat of my pants.
*I'm good @ finding distractions & project (refer below @ the latest vintage faux bamboo tables that I bought this weekend)
*I also am really good @ starting projects but not finishing them.(Blame it on the part ADD in me)

Speaking of projects...

This weekend, I just purchased the exact same vintage faux bamboo tables as pictured above. Husband said I needed more faux bamboo tables like a hole in the head. I say a few holes in the head never hurt..especially if I could re-create them to look like the below side tables from 1stDibs.

I need another dresser or table like I need a hole in the head. DARN you CRAIGSLIST!

When the kids go down, Momma goes Craigslisting.

Love those nesting tables.
We need a truck.
