Then sometime after church tomorrow morning, Kevin will be back. Yay! Tomorrow afternoon is our neice's 3rd birthday party, which we're really looking forward to, especially since I very unintentionally blew off my sister-in-law Rachel's surprise 30th birthday party last night. Imagine my surprise when I got up this morning, thinking the party was tonight, only to read about how it already happened last night. Ugh. Total brain-mixup.
Anyway, I ended up buying a couple of (probably-overpriced-for-a flea-market) things at the "A Paris Street Market" flea in Littleton this morning. Quote of the day, spoken by Anna, as we walked around the flea: "Why is everyone here peach?" Ah, the innocence of youth. I didn't want to spend my time at the market explaining about modern-day segregation, the differences between black and white culture, or white flight, so I tried to bypass it entirely by saying, "Well that is the skin that God gave all of these people." It worked. Whew! Anna also ended our time there in style by peeing in the parking lot. You can't say we Heldts aren't classy...(but at least she got to ride home in dry pants and a dry carseat!)
Here are my flea finds:
2 bird prints in 5X7 black frames. I thought they were so cute!
A magnetic message board and 3 magnets. Perfect for our breakfast/kitchen area! (I'm probably going to paint the frame. I say "probably" because I'm a flake.)
