remember how last week i read the wrong date for the flea market and blah blah blah and a bit of jibber jabber later, and well . . . we missed it? this week was the complete opposite of last as today was the actual date! - and ahhhh (pause to fill the relief), it was soooo much better. we made out with the few pieces that we could carry with us on the train home (yes we took the train), all under $35 as well. i'm so excited to use the coolest blanket we found, tucked under a little vintage desk, by far my favorite find of the day.
we have had some fun situations on public transit. just about every time we decide to take it, the train breaks down. thankfully today, with the 98 degree weather (literally had sweat dripping down my back, unflattering but extremely true), was a different story and we made it home with no 45 minute stops.
saturday i also took the train down to the ballpark stadium, where i met family and camden for a night of baseball. baseball is one of the few sports that i actually like to watch (well in person at least), but the highlight of the evening is always the fireworks.
there is something about fireworks that you never outgrow. the sparkle in the sky mixed with the boom effect of each one, it never seems to get old, and the finale, nothing beats a good firework finale.
it was a brilliant weekend, and ever better, i actually got a bit of cleaning done. shocker i know, but i'm enjoying looking at the floor again and there is always something about clean sheets with a freshly made bed, don't even get me started . . .
