This weekend was my niece's second birthday part. It was a costume party. Hubby's costume was The Edge. (How awesome is that?)


Fall break is coming up, and we are finally going to take our hiking trip. This weekend I bought granola bars and peanut M&Ms and water and a new pair of hiking type pants and other random things to pack for a hiking trip. I was smiling the whole time.


Today I went to my favorite cafe and asked if they would make a cake for Hubby's birthday. They said yes. It will be all kinds of chocolate, with a Sting-type theme. I am almost giddy about this cake.


When I was ordering the afore mentioned cake, the cafe owner informed me that they are going to be having a poetry reading and they would really like for Hubby to be part of it. I am beyond giddy about this.


This past week, for the first time in my life, I played hooky and took the train into the Big City for the day. I met up with Coffee Friend, who now lives too far away for us to see each other. But she took the train south and I took the train north, and we had ourselves a day. I took her to my favorite vegetarian restaurant. She took me to Anthropologie. It was lovely.


I now have an Anthropologie wish list. It includes a $128 owl cookie jar. I don't think I'll ever own this cookie jar, but it makes me smile to look at the picture.


Hubby and I finished out the weekend with a post dinner walk on the beach.


I ran 7 miles yesterday

So jealous of the hiking trip! I hope you have a blast! Sound like the last week was a good emotional uplift for you. I hope it keeps on.
