The good, the bad...and the bookcase

The good:
The weather here was SPECTACULAR all weekend. It ALMOST makes up for the horrendous amounts of snow we've gotten in the last two months. It was sunny, warm when you stood in the sun and the snow melt was significant so I was thrilled.
I had a really fun lunch AND dinner with my friend M and that totally saved my Saturday from being boring and lame. During same lunch and dinner I found 2 fabulous parking spots which cost me the total of 25 cents for the afternoon and evening...and in the little tiny town that we are in this was cause for MAJOR celebration!
I went to my parents for dinner last night and my brother and I made hamburgers from scratch and they were delicious. Good grilling T, seriously, SO GOOD.
The bad:
Mr. Pit is STILL not home. That's right folks, he was supposed to get in yesterday at 11am, but due to flooding in Rio the crew couldn't make it to the plane and timed out before they got there, then when they finally left they couldn't make any connections in Miami yesterday. However, he did take off this morning and is supposed to land at 11am.
This delay caused me to do nothing but shop yesterday...BUT...I only spent $30 mostly because everything else I was looking for eluded me.
The Bookcase:
My Mom and I ended up finding the PERFECT bookcase for Little Pit's room. I had been scouring the Pottery Barn Kids catalog for AGES and had seen this bookcase but didn't consider it because of it's size...but then I saw it in person and realized it would be perfect. Even more perfect than that was that they had it IN STOCK so I didn't have to pay shipping. PLUS, Mom decided it was her gift from her and my Dad, so I had to pay a whole lot of nothing, thanks Mom!

So this is it...cute right?!

And we got white baskets with green and white polka dot liners...I can't wait to put it all together next weekend!!

Oh yeah, and thats our plan for this coming weekend...Saturday we're going to take the room apart (and by 'we' I mean Mr. Pit and my brother) and move everything out and then the rug cleaning people are coming by Saturday afternoon to clean every rug in the house, yippee! Then Sunday we're going to put the room together (and again, by 'we' I mean Mr. Pit and my other brother who's very handy) and they will put together the crib, glider and bookcase, and lug the dresser/changing table upstairs and put everything where it belongs! And, don't worry, there will be before and afters taken I promise :)

That's it for the weekend, I am practically bouncing out of my seat for Mr. Pit to get home, 10 days is the longest we've gone without seeing each other since we were married (I know, I'm a big baby, you don't have to tell me) so I can't wait to see him. Also trying to figure out if it's worth a vacation day to go pick him up from the airport or try to work all day and leave a little early...we'll see.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Mrs. Pit
