Sup, blog? Look at the tiny black Pomeranian we met last week at the dog park, MAW!
We also met Lilly, a Bernese Mountain dog who has accrued a whopping 109,000 followers on IG. Damn, Lilly!
Leaves are starting to get a little crispy! I think last Friday was probably the last really hot day. It was 90 degrees, too hot for pregnant ladies and black dogs to be outside.
I had time to work two jobs, go grocery shopping AND take the rogs for a walk before my cousin Erika showed up that evening with her two children. That night she made macaroni and cheese from scratch, Josh barbecued hamburgers and the next morning Josh woke up super early to spend the weekend camping with his crazy uncle.
Erika and I and the boys headed down to Pike Place Market, where of course we made a pit stop at Milagros, where I oohed and aahed but didn’t buy anything.
We put our gum on the gum wall. We also ate pizza at a delicious little pizza joint tucked into Post Alley–HIGHly recommended.
Many people are grossed out by the gum wall but I think it’s cool. Then again, it does combine two things I love–gum and street art!
When we walked up to this street performer, he was double hooping, balancing a guitar on his face and solving two Rubik’s cubes, one in each hand. “Behold: the power of a GED,” he said. “Stay in school, kids.”
Erika and Cash. Cash is a little cutie and very much three years old–meaning, everything is MINE and he had little baby tantrums throughout the day. Luckily, he also had a short attention span.
After Pike Place, we stopped at the grocery store for ingredients for bacon carbonara. Erika whipped it up by memory, I made a green salad and we had garlic bread too. YUM.
Sunday morning, after breakfast we took Cash and the girls to the park to get their ya-yas out. I found a giant rhinestone on the ground! This isn’t the first time I have found a rhinestone at a dog park. Once a magpie, always a magpie.
The Graco crib I had ordered arrived on Saturday, and Erika was enthusiastic about setting it up. So we did! Unfortunately, we set it up in the parlor, and when it came time to move it into the baby room it didn’t fit through the door! We had to remove one side. Oy vey. Cash was eager to test it out, while holding my pink glitter ukulele.
Then we went to “Display & Costume” for funsies. I always think it’s fun!
Cash and a kitty mask. Meow.
Gimme gimme gimme, I need I NEED.
I approve of wigs for dogs! Too bad my dogs don’t.
They left Sunday evening, after we stopped at Der Weinerschnitzel for corn dogs. Mmmmmm. Josh returned from his camping trip really late last night, but luckily called me around 9 pm to tell me he would be home late, so I could stop worrying and go to sleep. I am 20 weeks and 2 days pregnant today.
Sadly, Gene Wilder passed away yesterday. Earlier this year I had watched an interview with him looking all old and frail and it was heartbreaking! But 83 ain’t too shabby. Especially when during the last 3 years he was suffering from Parkinson’s. Have a fabulous week, bloggerloos!
