We had a fairly busy but fun Saturday this past weekend that included a little domesticity, some art and some partying.
Early on, we were out the door (powered by French toast and bacon, because really what day doesn’t start better with bacon?) and off to The Container Store, one of the Beloved’s favorites. One of our goals was to get a slide-out shelf for one of our kitchen cabinets, which we’d seen in a flyer. They had several widths (10”, 14”, 17” and 21”), which brought on the following conversation:
S: Which one do you think we should get?
B: This one – the 17” one.
S: That looks a little wide for our cabinet…
B: Naw, it’ll be fine.
S: You sure?? I think we should get the 14” one…
B: Positive, the 17-inch is the one we need.*
After that, it was off to Balboa Park to go see "Art Alive" — the exhibition at the SD Museum of Art where floral arrangers create pieces "inspired" by some of the paintings there (of course you’re not supposed to photograph the exhibits…so I took pictures of the interior fountain surrounded by hydrangeas and a cool lattice window that I really liked). It was packed, but a nice diversion, and it was a great excuse to go down to Balboa Park and walk around.
We also stopped at the arboretum there, which is always kind of cool.
Lastly, we were off to a friend’s son’s birthday party down in Chula Vista – he was 2. It was a great time with a fantastic spread of food. The highlight for the kids was that there was a “Nemo” piñata that was filled to breaking with candy.
All in all a great way to spend a “regular” Saturday.
*FYI – We’ll be returning it for the 14" one next time we’re nearby.
