Saturday, up bright and early for a haircut and chat with Paula and onwards for an amazing breakfast at the Parker House. I haven't eaten there in a dog's age and shame on me! It was mega-delicious and I'm happy to see they've expanded their lunch menu to include about a 100 different kinds of sammiches! Including........wait for it......a pulled pork sammich!!!! Wha???? Pulled pork only blocks from my office and I'm only just now finding out about it???? I'll have none of that!!
Saturday night, evening nap leads to a great (but yawny) night at the Townehouse to see Kaili's friends Reverb Syndicate! Finally! What fun was had, complete with dancing go-go girls and toe-tapping surf music. Excellent, excellent....except for the after 1am start time. But I made it to exactly 1:50am before I had to admit defeat and run home to bed.
Sunday, the Garlic Festival! One of my favourite events of the summer. Not for the awful, awful street entertainment or the 15 vendors selling nothing but garlic but for the endless stands of folks selling anything and everything made of garlic. It's. So. Good. Filled with garlicky goodness we headed for coffee with my parents, trip to the Farmer's Market and over to their place for snacks and chat. Homeward bound for some slow-cooker chicken wings (sooooo good.....) and you guessed it, borderline napping on the couch until it's time for bed.
The Olympics are over. Now I'll have to go back to reading my book to entertain myself. Whatever.

This George Nelson bench for $180 (which is unfortunately 5 inches longer than I can have in my entryway -- the search continues!).
This Argyle Shelving Unit for $400

This Retro Roadbike hoodie from Red Boots Design.
This pretty grey one from Victorian Bird.
Birds of a Feather Hoodie from Deadworry.
And of course the Sherpa Fleece hoodie from J Crew -- possibly the best hoodie ever invented.
If you also love Shark Week that much, you can click here to buy the Shark Week 20th Anniversary DVD. And before you wonder -- of course Kelly already owns it.
In case the shark thing spreads into other facets of her life here are some other options for her;
This dress from Reincarnated Threads called "Stripes Good, Sharks Bad" so she can watch Shark Week in comfort;
Or this dress from Aorta so she can watch Shark Week and feel saucy;
This Great White shark print from Berkely Illustrations she can look at when Shark Week is over for another year;
This t-shirt of a shark wearing a jean jacket from Partybots that she can get for her husband Steve to wear during Shark Week;
This shark onesie from LilCubby so that future Baby Kelly's can be well prepared to watch Shark Week in style.
