Weekly Happiness

Hey! Last time I checked in, we had started the Birthday Shennanigans week for Joe with a visit to the Clark Elioak Farm/Enchanted Forest, where he got to hold a goat for the first time and we explore the Faerie Forest. After I pressed publish, I headed out to Flicks On The Hill, which was marvelous, because the Addams Family and AVAM always are. We didn’t stop there!

We drove out to Westminster to explore the BEST Sunflower Garden I’ve ever been to, and that’s saying something coming from me. Then we went to a really great antique mall, and I found some great postcards and the exact yellow sippy cup I demanded the fridge be stocked full of apple juice in. On his actual birthday, we played pinball and arcade games, went to a cool local art show about superheroes, lived our dreams in real life by sitting down in the street during a DOG BLOCK PARTY!!! Seriously, there were dogs of all shapes, sizes, breeds, colors, energy levels, ages, it was amazing. They were in costumes, there was a DJ spinning only dog-relative songs, there were relay races, pools for the dogs, just an absolutely fabulous time. Then we went to Bo Brooks because Joe really loves Tiki culture and this is the only place in town with a tiki hut, so we got a fancy meal and ate till we were full, tired, and tipsy. It was a great day.

This coming week I’m getting to meet his band mates (plans changed), and celebrating the Aquarius Full Moon! Lots of things on the calendar, things to make, places to go, ah. Busy! What are YOU up to?!

Here’s what I’ve been into lately…
