  • My dad is in from Mexico and he finally got to see the shop. We've had a chance to catch up and spend some quality time together. On Saturday we had an incredible dinner at Muriel's.
  • I made brownies from scratch for the first time. I used a recipe from the Martha Stewart Baking book I got for Christmas - but I substituted whole wheat flour. They turned out awesome (if I may say so myself!).
  • Angie reached the minimum weight for adoption and went back to the Humane Society and now our home is officially kitten-less. My plants are very happy about this. I'm a little sad.
  • Hoi Polloi started getting it's winter box from Kretschmann Farms!!! Our specials feature the organic, locally grown, seasonal goodness.
  • We got new furniture for our bedroom. It feels so grown up to have nightstands that match the dressers. It's still just Ikea, but it's the nicest bedroom set I've ever had. I'll post pictures once the transition is complete.
  • We had a milestone at Hoi Polloi on Saturday with our biggest sales day to date! Thanks so much to everyone who's come in!
  • jb and I went to see Juno. So sweet.
