I'm off in just a few hours to meet up with my mom and grandmother to look for some maternity clothing. In truth, I loathe most of what is offered out there for us pregos. I find most of it either depressingly matronly, poorly made, or attempting to be flirty and sexy in a way that doesn't appeal to either my pregnant or non-pregnant self. I've been saying it for years, but I really should just make my own clothing line. Maybe that will be my next "Homemade Living" or "Small Measure" endeavor-sturdy, durable, fashionable, ecologically-minded women's fashions!
After that, it's over to my friends Meg and Alisa's place. Meg, currently a photographer but formerly a hair stylist, is going to give my locks a much needed trim in exchange for some canned goodies from my pantry. I love bartering with friends. We've all got our skills, it's just a matter of figuring out the best means of sharing them with one another! Later in the afternoon, our friends Josh and Denise (who you might remember from this post) are stopping by to take an unused filing cabinet and Dogloo off our hands (Denise can use the filing cabinet for her emerging cheese business while their dogs, Abbie and Brutus, can snuggle up in the Dogloo this winter while keeping a protective eye out over their herd of milking goats).
We don't yet have Saturday plans, but Sunday will serve as my last day at the Cake Shop before settling in for the next few weeks to attend to some freelance writing gigs. And then, of course, there's all that nesting to get out of the way before Nugget arrives on the scene!
Wherever your weekend takes you, may it be a glorious one!
*For all you locals planning on attending LAAFF this Sunday, stop by my girl Faryn Davis's Fernworks booth. She's crazy talented and I'd buy all of her pieces if I could. Instead, you should! Tell her I sent you!!!
