feel free to revel in envy when I tell you that my sister-in-law made me one of her famous quilts. it is fabulous. she even let me pick one of the fabrics and then she worked around that. she’s so clever. and talented. and sweet. and gorgeous. lucky lucky me.
then my mother helped me make crib bedding for the cradle my mother-in-law is letting us borrow. we whipped this scalloped bumper together in about 3 hours so it certainly isn’t perfect but nothing in the cradle should detract from the perfectness of a newborn babe anyway. that’s my excuse for shoddy stitching. believe it?
david and I also enjoyed some pizza from LGO with some of our favorite friends on earth, ate some café rio, enjoyed a delightful trip to tia rosa’s complete with tomatillo salsa and salmon tacos. then we finished off our trip at liberty market – do yourself a favor and go there for their arizona sky panini or best chicken sandwich and cinnamon roll bread pudding. amongst other things, I dearly miss valley cuisine.
and arizona was also kind enough to bestow a very pleasant monsoon storm on saturday morning. it was perfection. the worst part? coming home. that’s right – that was worse than the 105 degree temperatures we sweated through. I’m just going to say it – are you ready for it? I’m an arizona girl at heart. though san diego isn’t too shabby either.
