those were our major purchases this weekend. i have entered the world of pot and pan envy! i loved the sets made by allclad, they were gorgeous and over $600, i think at that price they deserve a gourmet kitchen with racks to display them, i dont think i could possibly cook with them for fear of burning something and then ruining the pan, although is it true that if you spend that much on cookware, it wont burn? i think that should be a clause or a selling point. we ended up with a skillet with emerils name on it made by allclad, the sick thing is, i am really really really excited to cook with it (never thought that would enter my mind) and as a bonus, i can say BAM all the time! that will make my food even better, i am sure! we also got a new fuzzy bath mat and a paper towel holder. when we got home and put everything away and attached the holder, we sat down to have some lunch and i had this overwhelming feeling that this place is finally becoming home. not that it hasnt felt like we dont belong, it just seemed sterile i guess. i mentioned this to kevin and he kinda gave me a quizzical look but understood all the same. when nick came home today, he first noticed the toaster oven, that kevins dad gave us, and then the paper towel holder and made a very similar comment to what i had said the day before, kevin turned to me and said it must be the paper towel holder, it is funny what makes a place feel like home. we also went to guitar center to get a cord thing for kevins guitar, which he can now plug into the computer and use garage band, that is pretty cool! but even cooler is guitar center is right next to DSW and i got these, super cute, so different from anything i have ever worn, peep toe shoes that i want to wear right now, but its too cold!
so i will have to wait until its a bit warmer, at least 50 because they are just way cute! i had an overwhelming desire to very girly when i was there, i also found a cute pair of black strapy sandals that i will be able to wear more frequently then the really sparkly ones, i had a great pair and i know i wore them the day or so that i moved but i havent been able to find them, i think perhaps they were thrown away and after shedding many tears over them i have finally been able to move on. so we are starting another week, with great memories of going through mecca i mean DSW, oh and we went to a great concert at UHART, we saw this folk singer, cheryl wheeler. she was very funny and had a great voice and we saw her in a theatre that held maybe 250 people max, very intimate and very good! and she is on itunes if anyone wants to check her out. at first i felt a little intimadated by the crowd, they were all older very educated type people who probably all dove prius’ to the concert and if i looked really close they all had their birks on with wool socks, but as soon as she walked down the aisle up to the stage and started talking, she was just so cool and personable that i didnt mind all the smart people around me, she even talked about a gig she did out in kansas i think and the whole joke of the story was that the rental company only had a hummer available for her to rent and i just couldnt imagine her driving this monstrosity around and of course she had a great way of telling the story, what a great weekend… bring on monday!
