Yesterday Craig got a new computer for his office, then decided to take our old one to the office and keep the new one at home. So this new one is not all set up yet; I don't have my photos, and I don't have Windows Live Writer. Therefore I'm writing this in Blogger; I almost forgot what a pain it is!
Now, on to the main topic. July 31 was our anniversary...17 years! I know that makes us sound really old, but we're just in our 30s. Okay, I know that sounds old to a lot of you, too. Anyway, Wendy was still here and offered to babysit while we went out to celebrate.
One of the great things about Craig, and one of the many reasons I love him, is that he will do anything for me. Including going in to Pier 1 on our anniversary date. It had been a very long time since I was in a Pier 1, several years at least. I had forgotten how cool it is! Does anybody besides me remember Pier 1 back in the '80s, when it was less chic and more like an ethnic bazaar?
Cutting to the chase, I found a few bargains. You may remember that I wanted a third food item vase filler behind my sink. I found 6 mangosteens for 59c each. Yeah, I didn't know what a mangosteen was, either. I thought it was some kind of eggplant.
Then I found this really cute bird pillow for $1.79.
Okay, it's not a pillow, it's a napkin laid on top of a pillow. I got three of the napkins, which was all they had. And I'm going to cover some pillows with them because they will fit in perfectly with my Layla-inspired living room. Come to think of it, I don't think I ever posted Layla's photos from the consultation I won. I was planning to do a big reveal, but since it's taking so long to pull it all together, maybe I'll go ahead and post them this week. Stay tuned!
